I missed one day of work.
And so I missed the announcement that today is her last day. I just found out randomly from someone else that I am about to be orderer of office supplies. I might even be about to get "answering the phones" added to my list of job responsibilities again. I am definitely going to have to sort my own advices.
The economy being what it is, somehow I think since the replacement for the girl who used to be in my office comes in two weeks and she is so qualified, we aren't going to be replacing my assistant. And I just found out. This totally cements my theory that male coworker hates me. That's fair though cause I don't really think much of him either....
I just can't believe no one mentioned it to me. "you do know today is her last day right?" "no" "oh." "hey, how did I miss that today is her last day? [expecting shock at the news]" "yeah that's right you weren't here last friday." "oh."
She was terrible at her job, there wasn't much we could trust her to do, but I generally managed to find an hour or two's worth of copying and sorting for her every day. Now I am going to have to find time to do that on my own.
I just can't believe no one told me. I wonder if she was fired, laid off, or quit???
[edited to add! and oh the filing! I am going to have to do my own filing. Ugh.]
