Going To Leave You To Think About That

, , , , , | Working | December 7, 2019

(The office I work in has five full-time employees and one part-time employee. We work from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, but the part-time position is from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm. When I work part-time, I notice my coworkers get happy when I come in and really happy when I leave. One day, this happens:)

Me: “All right, everyone, see you tomorrow!”

Coworker #1: “Oh, [My Name], I love it when you leave!”

Me: “Uh…”

Coworker #2: “No! Not like that!”

Coworker #1: “What?”

Me: *jokingly* “You love it when I leave? Gee, thanks!”

Coworker #1: “Oh! No, I mean I love it when you leave because it means we only have two hours left!”

Me: “Oh, okay, I get it!”

Coworker #2: “Yeah, we love you, but we also love it being close to going home.”

(I’ve been full-time for almost five years now. My lunch break ends when the part-timer leaves for the day, and now I completely get it!)
