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?

Goodbye to Eric!
Hi again.

VERY glad to hear that Eric will be gone after this week! It will be a really Good Friday. Speaking of Friday, you want to meet John and me for lunch? We're going to M-con.

Re: Goodbye to Eric!
Of course! It wouldn't be Good Friday without the obligatory pre-convention lunch. Melody may well join us, but I won't promise anything on her behalf. You'll have to ask her yourself.

So what are we going to do next year when The Convention That Shall not Be Named moves off the Easter weekend? ;)
