I do appreciate blogs in general, and anyone who can consistently put words to paper (or virtual paper). It is a gift I will try to emulate for the rest of my life.
Today was a particularly tense day at work, and the issues fell upon my desk at 4:50 pm, and had to be handled immediately. So I wasn't able to leave until around 6:00 pm, and I still have the gritty emotions clinging to me like crusty mud. Not 3 hours ago, I issued 5 termination checks, one of which is for someone I am fond of and have worked with since I started my employment in 2003. The termination is going to have direct impact on other parts of of my job, and I can just see organization getting flushed down the toilet, and me having to dive in after it.
I am deliberately blank at work, I work, I leave, I show up the next day, I work, I leave, and so on, and my desk is void of personalization. I have seen my sister in law fired about a year ago, and no matter how hard I work, I fully expect to be the next one out the door. On the day I am given my termination check, I don't want to suffer the humiliation of cleaning out my space, I only want to grab my purse and leave the building.
So now as I purge my negative emotions onto my poor unsuspecting blog, I realize the old sarcastic adage
"Get a Dog!"
can now be updated to
"Get a Blog!"
"Get a Blog!"
