Wounded…. Betrayed… Understaffed…

Today, one of my analysts resigned. Thankfully, she isn’t leaving right away. She’s going to stay until mid-July and finish up some important projects before she leaves. And she volunteered to help out if we are short – well ‘volunteered’ isn’t the appropriate word, she expects to be paid… I think… I should ask.
Apparently her new job offers more money, more vacation days, more advancement potential and is only a 10 minute walk from her home. How can I compete with that? All I have to offer is a company t-shirt (size medium) and snacks for cost in the lunchroom.
This is very sad. She is part of a hand-selected, highly-trained, genetically-superior team of engineers. It’s like taking Mr T out of the A-Team. The remaining team is still great, but who would wear the bling?
Now I have to post for a new analyst. Reading a hundred (not exaggerating) engineering resumes in this heat is going to put me into a coma.
P.S. The women in my life don’t stick around long, do they? Duong, I’m hiring a guy! Perhaps I should start dating them again too…

    So, I am all caught up now. Loved the pics! Especially the uterus. Very tasteful.I am so glad I will have something to read when I get to work. Adele posts later (partly due to the time change, partly due to her style) and I am always just jonesing for a blog to read in the morning. I know I have to get more organised so I can blog earlier, and let\’s face it, as the most easterly blogger, you\’d think I wouldn\’t be all that worries about it, but I like to start or end my day with the blog. Since you are closest to me timezone wise, I think it is only fair that I read your blog at my morning coffee and Adele\’s at afternoon coffee, if she has posted by then. That\’s only noon in her world.Enough about that. Thanks for the link!
