I was looking forward to today - our once a year review with the Accountant to see how the business has done. I am now upset, annoyed and unsure of what to do. The meeting went ok but when we were leaving and shaking hands our Accountant put his arm around me. As I found this uncomfortable I ducked but was in the doorway so couldnt move sideways. As I straightened up I was being kissed on the head!! I quickly moved away as my Husband, who had seen all this taking place, moved forward to "shake" the Accountants hand. I'm not sure how hard he "shook" it or if he made any other contact but as I turned around our Accountant wasnt looking very happy and nor was my Husband!
We have had this Accountant for about twenty years and have no contact with him other than for business. Right now I dont feel like I can go back to the office - I dont like being slobbered on and dont think I would be comfortable there again. What do you think? Was this acceptable behaviour for a professional?
The good news is that we doubled our turnover - despite being in a recession. I wish I could celebrate, I just dont feel up to it right now.
