Mr. Edwin, of Ask Mr. Edwin fame, has left us for a management position. I’m sad to see him go, but I’m happy for him in his new endeavors. Edwin is convinced that I am as well-behaved as I am (which, let’s face it, isn’t very) because of his influence, and, now that he’s gone, I’m going to turn into a Miley Cyrus at the VMAs, feet up on the reference desk, glittery mess (this is not an exact quote, but it’s close). On Monday, our first Edwin-free day at the library, I found this on my desk:

I screamed. A lot. My poor coworker, Leigh, was on the phone with a teacher, but I couldn't stop screaming.

I screamed. A lot. My poor coworker, Leigh, was on the phone with a teacher, and could probably have used some quiet, but I couldn’t help it.

Duly noted, Edwin.

This is the second coworker I’ve “lost” in the past couple of months and I can’t take it. Like the toddlers I work with, I hate change. While my library is finally hiring, we just don’t get replacements for librarians who move on.  At least, not in a timely fashion. Not to mention that we’ve lost two very talented and driven librarians. I miss them. It’s the pits.

Doesn’t anybody stay in one place anymore?
