Post # 161

At least he tried to make it sound like it wasn't my fault. 
At least it took him weeks to actually pull the trigger.
And the severance was thoughtful.

If only I knew that they'd miss me.
That they'd hate to see my empty desk when they walked by.
That at least once, someone would say "Well, this sucks," because I was gone.

Worst fear...that it won't even matter to them
While I'm sitting here, obviously struggling
More than I should be

If only I hated my job
And they were smelly tyrants
With no sense of humor

It was just a job
It was only 42 weeks
And I made my share of mistakes

But the biggest one...
Needing something
That would cease to exist
Too soon.
