Yesterday Sandra asked both Darrell and I to come to the office together, for she said, she had news of an important nature to impart to us, and that it would be best if we heard it at the same time!
Our hearts were full of angst and we both felt that all did not augur well. After sitting us down, Sandra informed us that for her part the news was very exciting, however she realised that for us, she was about to deliver a devastating blow…….
It transpired that Sandra had put in for promotion, had been successful and would now be moving into Tallulah’s office, inputting information of an extremely complicated computer type nature into the school’s database.
Though happy with Sandra’s success Darrell sobbed inconsolably for several minutes……..
………. clutching several man-size tissues and blowing his nose profusely.
I tried to stay stoical, but inside my heart was breaking too, but I knew I had to be strong for Darrell.
She added that at the moment she couldn’t tell us who our new boss would be, but she would make sure they knew our little foibles and what diligent and responsible workers we were.
When we were a little more composed and Sandra got the office biscuit tin out, Darrell and I resolved that we would give Sandra an exceptionally robust send-off ….. involving bunting, a handmade card and celebratory dainties of an especially delicious type nature!
