Poop.

In addition to this work week making my head feel like it will 'splode, (every.single.project.has.deadlines.at.the.exact.same.time.and. some.people.seem.to.have.no.sense.of.urgency), this week at work sucks further because my very favorite co-worker is leaving.

He's the guy in the office that has a way of making everything fun, who gets along with everyone, and who is respected by everyone because he really knows his stuff.

Tomorrow is his last day and I've been in a bit of denial this week (helped along by the insane workload mentioned above).

I've always done a good job of staying in touch with former co-workers and am sure it will be no different with him (especially since he and his wife live very close to us).

Whatevs. Still sucks the big one.

Perhaps your co-worker leaving sucks. But I picked up on this comment:

"He's the guy in the office that has a way of making everything fun, who gets along with everyone, and who is respected by everyone because he really knows his stuff."

Sounds like there's a chance for someone with good ol' fashioned gumption to jump into his shoes. You got gumption, don't ya kid?

Well, sure, I got gumption. However, he is an expert in the IT arena. As something of a Luddite myself, gumption alone ain't gonna cut it.

Is he an expert, or a really good bullshitter? Gumption can get you to, um, number two.
