My work husband* got let go yesterday. He was the project manger for the upgrade I posted about yesterday. A really great guy and a great PM. He was a contractor who came on board last June. And he was vital to the success of this project.
He talked me off the ledge more than once. When I thought we would never make the go live date, he reassured me we would. He told me we things would go fine. And he was right.
I have a hard time understanding how humans relate to each other at work. It's a job people. In the relative scheme of things, work is nothing. You don't have to go home with each other. Work to live - not the opposite. (Oh sure - good advice from someone who worked until midnight last Friday).
I'll miss not having a work husband. The work boyfriend will have to suffice for now I guess.
My partner's boss is....ummm.. how do I say this.....a d#@khead. I see what she has to put up with every day and I feel her pain. People are funny creatures.
And work - well, it's a way to pay the bills and a place to spend some time so you don't have to be home cleaning the house all day.
Happy Friday to all you worker bees out there.
*Work husband - Not a husband in the literal sense of the word but a co-worker with whom you spend several hours a day working.
