View Diary: Lucky to have a job (122 comments)

  •  My former employers were lucky... (13+ / 0-) have me working in my job for them.

    I knew how to get the work done. Hell, I drew up the base sheets and blocks used all by my lonesome! I knew where everything is and what to do to get the work done. But they didn't keep me busy, since they couldn't keep up.

    I was also a crutch for the two younger men who eventually were running my section, since they didn't know the territory, having  not come up through the ranks nor trying to learn it. One of them got the supervisor's job instead of me. Neither had the guts to stand up for their people, or seek new people for the section. When I retired, they didn't replace me, and my position was written out of the budget 18 months afterwards. Next June, another engineer retires, and probably won't be replace, either.

    The two guys I mentioned will be lucky if they can hold onto their jobs!
