Pandas can't talk

It's official

After having an attorney browbeat me for twenty minutes about the policy governing the release of confidential materials without his even bothering to review the policy, I'm pretty sure I'm done here. I have too much responsibility with too little authority and too few staff. I am on deadlines that are impossible to meet given the workload. Unlike anyone else here, I can be assessed with monetary penalties if I make inadvertent mistakes... which are all the more likely because I'm expected to do more work with two people than my predecessor did with six.

On top of all this, I have to deal with belligerent attorneys on a daily basis.

I just don't have it in me.
