Well yesterday was my contractor's last day. It was sad to see him go. I enjoyed working with him. I couldn't have asked for a better contractor. He was very dedicated to getting everything done and put in a lot of extra hours.
I'm not really sure if management is really my cup of tea though. I think I prefer being a worker bee. Doug has been covering for his manager this week and it has been pretty hellish. He is always getting calls all hours of the night and weekends to do stupid stuff for upper management or to join conference calls every time something goes wrong. Being in management requires a lot of patience and having to be responsible for other people. It wasn't too bad with one person but I can't imagine managing a whole team unless they were all a bunch of Michael's. ;)
Oh and to top it off, as a goodbye present he got me two tickets to the Snow Patrol concert in Feb and left me his fancy shmancy mouse. Wasn't that sweet? I hope he enjoys his time off and is able to find another job when the time is right.
