just lucky, I guess

I got back from my long weekend with Anime Detour (about which more momentarily) to find that Eric the New Guy had given his two weeks' notice while I was out. His last day is Good Friday. Needless to say, this makes me a good deal less expendable than management thought I was when they gave me that crap review last month and warned me that I had 90 days to get my act together. Vengeful? Nursing a grudge? Who, me? Anyway, he's splitting for the Carlson Companies for a number of good reasons: he didn't appreciate being lowballed on the salary, he doesn't like the way things are run here at the Evil Banking Neighbor, and the job bores him. I can definitely understand that part. In spite of our Accountant titles, the job could be done quite capably -and for many years was- by a high school graduate whose sole skill is data entry. Keeping that in mind, hiring somebody who double-majored in business and accounting (and paying him less than market scale into the bargain) was a serious mistake. It guaranteed that the minute a better job presented itself he'd be out of there, just like his three predecessors. Well, I guess Holly doesn't count, since she was following her fiance back to Wisconsin, but if the job had been all that wonderful I think she might have been less willing to leave. That's business, though, ain't it?
