Things have been running pretty smoothly at the office for almost a year now, but shortly after arriving at work this morning the attorney at our branch of the law firm announced that he was submitting his two week notice of resignation this morning. He has been here almost two years, and is moving to Dallas for a better opportunity. I don't blame him for that, it just makes me sad.
Those of you who've been following my blog for the past couple years or more, know the ongoing saga of staff turnover. I have been here over four years, making me the senior employee at this branch which currently has an attorney and four support staff. It goes without saying that I am NOT looking forward to yet another transition, and all the accompanying paperwork and issues that go with it, not to mention reassuring clients who will be concerned about having a new attorney handling their claim. I am old and tired, and I've already done this dance more times than I can count, but what can I do - take a deep breath, take it one day at a time, and hope for the best... or to win the lottery so I can retire.
Please Lord, let them fill the position quickly with someone ambitious and nice to work with, and don't give me more reasons to hang myself from the nearest doorway!
