Goodbye little world

You know today is a bad day for me because I’m having two cavities filled later and this is not, in fact, the worst part of my day. The hardest part is that it is Bob’s last day here at Still Plugging Along Records, International. I may not have mentioned that Bob is my co-worker because when I posted about her way back when she wasn’t. She had been. And then she was again later. But now she won’t be. I should have warned you, a flow chart/timeline of some sort may be necessary to follow this.

But you don’t really need to know any of this, actually. All you need to imagine is that co-worker you have, the one whose office you find yourself putting your feet up in and badmouthing your other co-workers or moaning because he didn’t call and now what should you do? Coming to work when you’re working with a friend makes work kind of like hanging out with your friends, only with more spreadsheets and “I have to take this call.” And now life without that co-worker.

:: heavy sigh ::

But I want to wish Bob all the best in her new career as a teacher and also say, you’ll come back! Those ulcers you got are not indicative of the pressures of this job! The music industry has a glorious and prosperous future ahead!!!!

Man, I’m sad.

So long, Bob.

I know I’ve enjoyed my many months of wondering, “Just who the hell is Bob?” and “Did they tease Bob a lot in middle school P.E., what with looking so much like a girl and all?”

On the other hand, I guess we can look forward to Becca keeping us just as up-to-date on your teaching career as she did on your career in the music industry. Which seems to have consisted mostly of swimming in the Hudson River, riding a bike, running, and covering your face while being photographed.

Becca, sorry for your loss.

Aww, I have one of those work friends, too, and it will kill me when he gets another job, so I feel your pain. But good luck to Bob, and hang in there, Becca.

So, there’s an opening at the NYC office of We Will Find The Profit In This Yet Music Industries?

Did Bob work in Legal, perchance?

 
Becca says

Thanks everyone, your words are amazingly comforting. Even Bob liked them, although she is clearly too shy/busy to comment.

Alex, there were other posts about Bob’s amazing ability to sell CD’s to Circuit City but I think they got eaten by WordPress. Crazy!

kb, I don’t think so but a girl can hope!

Thanks, Dog & Mel, I’m trying! I got a little sniffly today but I pretended I had a donut crumb in my eye.

Sarp, no, she is in sales, as am I, but can you believe that Pious B has a lead on a replacement? The music industry is intertwined like Mr. Burns’ hands in The Simpsons.

However, our legal VP does love Showtunes so when that opening arises, I know you’ll be a shoo-in.
