Well the day has finally arrived and tonight John and
Krishna leave BGS for the last time. They were both made redundant and as a result I’m losing possibly the best manager I’ve ever worked with. Unfortunately the Company doesn’t agree because he’s Too Laid Back. Basically what that meant was we got a gaggle of go getting new managers in who mistake calm competence for lack of get up and go. They haven’t yet worked out that they talk the talk whilst others keep their gobs shut and just walk the walk.
Everybody’s trying to put a brave face on things, especially John (
Krishna’s said fuck and coming in later to say goodbye before going clubbing) but everybody is really down and pissed off. Everyone has brought in food; Hannah’s made two lemon drizzle cakes, so we are going to have far more food here than we’ll be able to eat. Even sandy, who’s on holiday, has made some stuff and come in with it.
Well the shift is nearly over, it’s 6.30, and there’s only 30 minutes left before John finishes. Still can’t get my head around it. Still feels unreal. I got everyone together a while ago for some photos and I’ll get everyone’s photos from the meal on Wednesday and sort out a website for them. Then be able to send everyone access so they can see all the photos and john will have a permanent record.
