I do expect this. My colleague is tendered.
She showed us her dark face and bad mood because of the heavy workloads. This becomes more serious after my senior leaved. I do discuss this with my new boss and asked to employ one new staff. It is no surprise that my request been rejected.
I do believe that the boss and the management prefer to safe the money. Very seldom bosses will invest to staff recruitment especially for their finance department staff.
I do wish the vacancy to get a replacement can be out as soon and have a smooth hand over. If not, who is the bad luck one going to take over this extra assignment? No need to guess but I already know the answer....
