Friday was the last day for two of my co-workers at work. When you spend 40+ hours a week with people you actually like, the thought of them not being there anymore is devastating.

That's a tough one. I was at a job for just over seven years. Everyone in the Department was so close. It was hard saying good-bye when anyone left. When it was my time to move on, I called in sick the last day on the job. I knew I wouldn't be able to handle saying good-bye. Driving home on my last day (I knew I wasn't coming in the next day), it was pouring out, and I was crying my head off. It was like a movie. I couldn't write it any better, lol.

Sorry I trailed off to my story; just saying I can definitely relate. You'll find that more often than not, you won't stay in touch. You say you will and truly believe you will, but life is so busy. You'll get close with other workers. I stayed in touch at first, with lunches and things, but now I'm down to exchanging Christmas cards with one of them.

I call these people "situational friends". Great friends while we were neighbors, in college, co-workers, in-laws (maybe). When the situation ends, so does the friendship. Of course, this is not the case with all, but some. It usually hurts too. Good luck Michael, in all you do. We're always here for you. This "situation" never ends.

I used to visit with one of the teachers each morning before school started when I was in high school. I did that for two years (11th and 12th grade). When it was time to graduate and then leave for college it was hard. I was so used to getting to visit with her in the mornings. It was sad. It took time to get over it; After awhile it was ok.
Thanks, Jenny. Your story sounds like it was hard to deal with, too, but I'm glad it got better.

Thanks, Janice. That was a great post. I don't blame you for calling in sick on the last day. I would probably do the same. Your drive home does sound like it came out of a movie, lol.

It is especially devastating, because I know you're exactly right. You exchange contact information and you keep up with it for a while, but it will eventually fade. We're a relatively small company so when one of the members of the "inner circle" leaves, it has a huge impact. This time is especially difficult.

Thanks again!

I'm sorry, Jenny, I know how you feel with the transportation. I also can't drive (and I'm 54 and have been told that I may never. And I've NEVER driven since I turned 16 in 1974) I also have to rely on special transportation, and on occasion have been forced to wait up to 4 HOURS for them!!! (that's a rarity, though)

At my job, I was selling two concert tickets to someone and they were a total of $63 dollars. When I ran them through, I accidentally charged them 63 cents.

My boss was cool about it but damn, I hate making mistakes like that. He is going to try to track the customer down. Otherwise I told him I would pay for the difference. I dont have that kind of cash to throw around damn

Well, when you've been at a job for too long and once there are new management and you start having problems, time to go.

I don't know how much you guys know about the Sherry Arnold case... But what I can tell you is it's national news now, and also a federal case because the FBI got involved with it middle of last week.

Sherry Arnold was a high school math teacher in Sidney, MT, which is about 4 hours from where I live. She went on her morning jog the morning of Saturday, January 7th, and never returned home. Long story short - on Friday, it was announced they'd found her dead. I don't know anything else yet.

The town I was working in for the past 2 months - from October to December - is ONE HOUR away from Sidney and is in the same oil-rich region. So I've been super freaking out because this happened 3 weeks after my assignment there ended. They have a suspect in custody there, and another suspect being held in Rapid City, SD (probably a good 5 hours from me - in southern SD, closer to Wyoming).

The oil-boom region has seen a HUUUUUUUUUUGE spike in criminal activity in just the last year, because the population has doubled and then tripled and there aren't enough police officers moving there to keep things in check. Just scary.

I was in NYC in September, and I felt FAR safer in Manhattan than I did up there. Eek!
