The bright side of the best people leaving

In a bit of bombshell news, in a week full of bombshell news, it has come to my attention that one of the most universally beloved of all my co-workers is taking another job at the County. This long-time library co-worker, who is an absolute delight to work with, has found a job in the county that pays her more fairly and even lets her work sometimes at home!

So, uh, good for her.

I guess.


I can take it. I've been here before. It's a trail of broken tears around here. The bad people go and become hilarious anecdotes, the good people go and leave their misty little scars, and here I am, forever, so far...

My response to this imminent loss has been to go to all my other co-workers and, rubbing my hands together with dark glee, exclaim mysteriously, "My diabolical plan is working!"

It doesn't matter what it takes; no one working around here shall dare to be more beloved than me!!!

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.
