Things change

Yesterday I ran into a guy I used to work with. Like up until 9-10 months ago. The two of us were the data entry department, and then things started getting slow. I transferred to a different department, which eventually led me out of the organization. Yesterday I found out he doesn't work there anymore either, not since December.

Like I said, we did data entry for the whole place. Now we're gone, with no replacements. It's a whole different system.

He's back in school now. Best of luck to him.

Interesting that you got to chat with your former colleague for a bit. I still think people work better than computer systems in general, but I hope things work out well for both of you. Hard to know what to train for these days, eh?

It was a surprise. I wasn't expecting to see him out in the middle of the day at the same time I was. Maybe I should have, though, just because of the way things had been going. In general I think employees are undervalued. Not in a financial sense - although frequently that too - but the way they're seen. Kids in school now must wonder what they're supposed to do with their lives.
