Sad Friday
Friday the 13th? Who cares? Not me. For me, yesterday was just...sad...and it went by too fast.

Yesterday was my boss' last day. She is transferring to another department in an entirely different building.

I've been at my job for almost 8 years. Marsha, my supervisor, came to the job about 2 or 3 months after I started so we've been together the whole time. I'm a 'lead' or 'senior' in the department and we worked closely together all the time. She gave me lots of responsibilities and even confided with me about a lot of things. We were much as one can be with a supervisor and still maintain a working relationship anyway. She was fun and funny and was a really good supervisor for the most part. She even encouraged me to apply for her job. I didn't. I'm not really supervisor material, though she thinks so. Maybe someday.

I thought I could make it through the day without crying...I had already had my breakdown a few days ago. But no...we were all teary eyed all day. We had a carry-in and gave her gifts. It was a good day..but a sad day.

She left right at 5 after a few trips to her car to take stuff home. More tears. Then, it just looked so lonely and bare at her desk. *sigh*

Yes, it really is possible to like your supervisor. Now, I'm just worried about who will be the new one. We won't find out for a week or so.

Until then, me and the other lead are in charge for the most part.

Pray for me. Amen.

PS This is Marsha with a funny look on her face from last Christmas.

    I do not like change and I know how you feel. The same thing just happened to me. We lost a wonderful supervisor and gained a total schmuck!
