Good bye party week
Pretty much everyone is leaving their job at my library this week, retiring or moving on. Well, not everyone, just three out of 60 people, but if that happened here every week after roughly five short months a person would walk into my library and they would see no one working, absolutely no one at all. That lone person would wonder "Where is everyone?", but they would, and here's where it gets tricky, they would have no one to ask!
Me and 56 other people are still here to ask, fortunately, just in case.
The first going away party was today. The cake didn't look half bad, but I resisted eating it because I only knew 34 of the 73 ingredients, which was two shy of my fastidious requirements.
After awhile I tore myself away from the party, which had devolved into a discussion of College Tuition, and I went to put a cart of non fiction in order. One of my co-workers came up to ask about the cake and the party.
"You know what the worst thing about a co-worker leaving is?" I asked.
"That they monopolize the break room all afternoon." My co-worker answered, which was pretty funny, but not what I was going to say and this is my blog.
"The worse thing about a co-worker leaving" I said. "Is that now you have to get to know a new co-worker."
