I came in to work yesterday to find out one of my brightest co-workers gave his notice. What's really shocking about the situation is that it's the owner's son. Most people would instantly assume that as the owners son, this job is a free ride for the guy. In reality the owner's son is probably the most hardworking guy I've ever known. His departure came out of nowhere and will result in a major upheavel of my department. He ran a portion of my planning department (although he was not in charge of my section of our department) and is solely responsible for winning many of our contracts. When he leaves many of those contracts will not be renewed and will most likely cause a couple of my co-workers to be let go. The uncertain future of that portion of our department has left people panicking.
I'm not going to pretend I know why he's leaving but there has been a lot of speculating going on in the office. Just about everyone thinks it has to do with the disorganization and mismanagement of our department. I'm not so sure that that is the case. However, if this provokes some serious changes around here, I'm all for it.
And now for some pictures of my cutie....
He cracks me up. Last night he was almost fast asleep in my arms and went to suck on his fingers but shoved them to far in his mouth and gagged. I thought he was going to cry but instead he started laughing hysterically only to fall asleep just seconds later.
