True story: A new hire with previous experience joined my group the week before Christmas. We had a team meeting to discuss what her responsibilities would entail. Right there in front of her co-workers and our manager, she actually said - and I quote: that's not convenient for me. Pin drop. WHO DOES THIS? Manager smiles and keeps talking. How does this go without a comment of some sort? Not even 'we can talk about this later'? Well...working with you is not convenient for me. Three different team members at three different times have told her to remove the staples before running a copy. Her document kept jamming. Really? Just what is it she has experience doing?
I'm leaving gracefully, on my terms with a little help from Cubbie man, P-Town Tom.
The good Mr. Olson has always kept me stocked with my birthdate-mate Mark and the forever young Sandberg. Ryne is no help here however, in action as I sit pondering my upcoming unemployment. Such a showy second baseman. A tux Ryno? Who you tryin' to impress?
Tom picked up these shiners from a local fire sale. Bragging of his limited availability, Altuve says he's numbered out of 99. Be humble, little man.
P-town packages include a nicely written note on a page from a HOF daily calendar. I've wanted one of these for a couple years but wouldn't you know I'd find out about them just when they're no longer in print. Supplementing the note are the team of 61 Post Yost and Burnside. Never heard of this Ty Cobb fellow.
I'm not sure why I ever began collecting backstops in gear, dressed in their Sunday best. Looking over their cards, I'm severely overcome with the need to nap. Exhausting. Go get that ball guys . I'll just watch from here.
This is just too much. Back in the binder boys. Enough exercise for one day!
Tom, thanks for these fanatic catcher additions. I'm topped with backstops 1980 and later. The boys on 92 Score made the design pop. I had to seek out a complete set.
Keep sending those positive vibes my way! I'm soon without a job, no health insurance. I've been applying around the web. Perhaps I'd improve my chances by taking 'lazy' off the resume. That would require some effort on my part so, nah.
