I had my moment today.
I was in a meeting with all the people I have worked with over the past 15 years. I took a good look at all the faces I will be leaving behind and felt sad. The “OH Shit what did I do” moment finally arrived. I didn’t think it would come, but there it was in the large boardroom of the 10th floor.
I have built some awesome relationships over the years. I have had some great laughs, great moments, and great memories that I will cherish forever. I will miss that dearly. I know that in my new job where ever that will be I will meet new people, make new friends, have new laughs, and make new memories.
I will miss the people the most I think. Not all of them but the majority for sure. There are some that I will not miss at all and I am glad to say good-bye to those few. I know I can’t stay for the people and I have to take this opportunity, no matter what. But I still felt a wee bit sad.
People I shall miss:
Steven Runcie aka SLR and Richard Brown aka Rich-Ard. They are sick, twisted guys that have many mental issues but I think that is why I keep them around (lol). They provide many hours of entertainment, somewhat like a slinky toy.
I will miss my best good friend BJ (which stands for Betty Jean) She has come along way in the last 3 years since I first met her. I first categorized her in the area as a stick in the mud know it all. Wow was I ever wrong! She is just like me! (scary, but true) she is weird, quirky, smart, and funny as hell! B has been my constant companion at work, and for that I thank her. Not just anybody can deal with me on a daily basis. lol
My car pool buddies Linda and Cathy. I will miss our morning chats in the car about dumb drivers, the weather and how much we wished we could have stayed in bed all day. Our rides home are pretty similar except the dumb drivers are replaced with dumb co workers, stupid processes that nobody understands and our favorite one, who is the retard that came up with that one!
A Person I will not miss: There are many more people who get my goat but she takes the cake.
Miss Difficult 2009 and 2010. She shall not be named due to the graphic nature of this paragraph. Trust me when I say she has earned this title and wears her sash proudly. Lord she is a piece of work. Just the sound of her voice sends a shutter of terror down my spine. She is never happy, complains about everything, hates change, and wears make up that would scare a clown. Actually I don’t want to spend much time talking about her as she is lame and not worth my typing skills.
It is funny how time flies when you have been doing pretty much the same work for years. I cannot believe 15 years has gone by. Here I sit in my grey walled cubie packing up a box or 2 and finding some treasures I have not seen in a while. A nice walk down memory lane.
I have 3 1/2 days left of work and I am looking forward to what lies ahead for me. I know another 15 years will go by before I know it and then I can look forward to retiring in Disneyland!
