An impromptu work discussion broke out in the back room of the library I work at today. A co-worker is shifting their schedule and will be leaving a night noted for its harmony and collegiality. There was some discussion regarding the replacement of this co-worker by another who was changing their schedule in a domino effect. Someone declared the new co-worker an even swap in virtues for the old co-worker. The old co-worker objected woundedly. One of us said, about the new co-worker in defense of the even swap idea, "Yes, but he's a great guy. He has no flaws."

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.
I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!
One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.

Ahh, the dynamics of different work teams. Something I don't miss. Right up there with two Sunday regulars who seemed to take turns calling in sick on Sundays--so we were almost always one short.ReplyDelete
Oh, I called in sick Wednesday. I had a cold. I love calling in sick! But yes, the teams do vary, and I'm glad you don't have to put up with them. Here is one for you:Delete
I am certain I will miss absolutely nothing, not even slightly, and yet, sometimes I kind of love all of it.
Yes. And sometimes I miss it a bit. So I stop in on days I think the "right" people will be there, and sometimes I take them fudge.ReplyDelete
Well that's quite nice of you then, so it's all okay. Fudge fudge, or maple walnut (I consider these the two kinds of fudge)?Delete
