“This having a baby and going right back to work has got to stop. They may do it in Africa and Asia but here it makes the rest of us look bad!”
-C. to Tink
I’m about to have a managerial divorce from my work wife Tink. She’s going on maternity leave but due to family concerns, a recession-induced hiring freeze on the department, and our need for another dispatcher, she won’t be coming back. Hennessy is moving over from our Appeals department and she’s going to be lots of fun to work with, but I will miss my work wife!
On an unrelated note, I am learning lots about driving in icy weather. I got my original driver license on Guam where the temperature never dipped below 75 F on a cold day. I never knew I’d have the experience to physically dig my car out of ice in a parking lot, nearly swerve off a road due to no fault of my own, or live in constant fear of killing a small child inadvertently. However this morning I discovered a new perplexity: my locks froze! I eventually got in the passenger’s side door and scooted over to drive to work, by which time that door was functional again, but honestly!

Love me some keyless entry. Although that doesn’t stop my doors from freezing on occasion.
Dude. Winter sucks. Allow me to say it again for emphasis.
My eyes are all teary now. Dang you! I will miss seeing you everyday too. But this isn’t “goodbye”. You will always be my work wife. 🙂
“Work wife”…. too bad you can’t have a more catchy term like “bromance”
