I had a Memoir Monday post ready for today.
Then I came into work and found out I was losing Old Guy.
Not “losing” like he is terminally ill.
Or even “losing” like that time at the mall when his Alzheimer’s kicked in.
Friday is Old Guy’s last day at the VA.
After 45 years of service to this great nation, both military and public service, the Old Guy is finally calling it a career.
I really expected him to work here until they planted him in the yard outback.
Guess I finally pushed him to the breaking point.
Either that, or the thought of sitting at home with his new girlfriend for the equivalent of half months pay seemed like too good a deal to pass up.
Regardless, I’m going to miss the Old Guy.
Now, I’ll have to find someone else at work to give shit too constantly.
Any ideas for a going away party/gift/blog idea????
