Whenever you are promoted, there shall always be several discontented voices - especially from staff members who think that they deserved (entitled to) such promotion rather than yourself. (kind of conflict-of-interest?). If you are unlucky, just like me, I have bypassed several other candidates. Candidates who have stayed there for umpteenth years. As a result, they are resentful, incensed with me – figuratively speaking.
I will be playing Mr.-Nice-Guy for the next quarter or so. Let them get over of the self-denial phase.
After that, you will see the truth-o-meter…
Someone may get burned.
