The cherry on the sundae of my week
I lost a good employee very suddenly back in December who went out on a Medical Leave of absence to get treatment for her cancer. Very sad. Because she had FMLA and a lot of sick time, I couldn't post her position until late March. In the meantime, we've had a wonderful temp whom everyone adores, she does a great job cheerfully, and we decided to make her permanent once the job became available.
All good right? Not so fast.
Just had a very painful conversation with her at 3:00 PM on a Friday, because her drug screen came back positive. You never can tell. Older woman, lovely manners, never had an issue. Apparently, she likes to mellow out every now and then with some good weed.
Now I have to start all over again....
In other news, I am about to leave the office for my very first golf lesson.
Somehow, nothing could be more appropriate this evening than whacking the crap out of a little white ball and perhaps having a cold beer afterwards.
