Oh, this is great. I need great teas today. I feel like the rug has been pulled out from beneath me, and part of that is the baby waking up at 4 and not really going back to sleep, and the other part is finding out my favourite coworker was fired today and I didn’t get to say goodbye.

I’m using social media to contact her and trying to arrange a goodbye lunch or something as a lot of people really like her and will miss her.

It’s hard to think though.

This tea though… this tea is smooth and creamy and rich and it’s not like drinking warm butter because that would be gross, but instead it’s just luxurious and comforting.

And I’m out of this, but I won’t add to my shopping list because I have a feeling this milk oolong is like other milk oolongs and I can get cheaper elsewhere.

Oh, that really sucks. I hope everything goes well for her.

Thanks. I think it will – they gave her a decent severance package (they said) as well options to go for re-training etc so maybe it’s ok? I know she wasn’t happy here, and butted head with the new manager – who just got promoted from acting office manager to actual office manager TODAY – hence the firing.

I know I’ve worked in a law firm too long, but if she has been there a decent period of time they would have to have a really good argument for letting her go. If she feels things weren’t handled appropriately, I would recommend she get a consultation with an employment lawyer to make sure she isn’t pushed around. Apologies if that isn’t the case, and I wish her luck either way! I hope you can make other work friends. :)

Thanks for the advice! If I get a chance to have lunch with her and she brings it up, I’ll pass that on! She had at least 5+ years there, and the biggest problem is just a personality isuse between her and the new boss. With the old one (who left 3 months ago), everything was smooth.

Wow. Yeah, I was ‘laid off’ from a job because the management and I did not get along, and I was actively looking for other employment. I had been there 11 months but got, I think, 5 weeks severance plus my vacation. :)

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
