for me since the previous director was
not only an expert on the lab who knew
everything about what was going on and
what needed to change, but he was also
my friend. Seeing him go was one of the
most difficult things I’ve been through in
the 11 years I have been here. At a previous job, the annual employee satisfaction
survey always had a question like, “Do
you have a best friend at work?” I always
thought it was a dumb question to ask
until my lab buddy decided to move on.
I really understand what it means to have
a friend at work and what it means when
they are gone.
