My xWH always tried to make me think that I wasn't any good at what I did, I was mean, too combative, too quiet and that people didn't like me. He also tried to imply that I was a failure at work and his career was going so much better because you know, he's so fucking awesome.
Well fuck you xWH because this week I had an interim review and was basically told I was on the fast track and was considered a go to person on a certain kind of project and the front office was glad to know they had someone like me in their pocket, but also!!! today I not only was appointed team lead for the entire month of December ( a big deal honor) BUT EVEN BETTER I'm being sent to Mexico City for the entire month of September to use my expertise to clear out a back log of cases and help that site get caught up on their work.
These trips are exceptionally competitive, everyone wants to do them, and usually you have to do them at smaller/lesser sites first to earn the right to go to Mexico City.
So there xWH. Look what I accomplished just by being myself. Hah!

CC-- You rock.
I'm going to guess that you weren't even jockeying for this position -- and you were chosen anyway.
You are so much more amazing than you even realize. It seems that everyone sees it but you.
*Hah* to your X is way too benign in this situation. I think it calls for a *go fuck yourself, douchebag!* response.
(and PS. Read the PM that I sent you a coupla weeks ago would ya? It will make you happy)

FTG! AWESOME JOB to you!
