Growing up is hard to do…

Having more responsibility at work sometimes suck.

Last week, someone was fired upon my recommendation.

To be fair, it’s been a long time coming, he knew he wasn’t reaching his goals as a trainee, he was given lots of chances to improve and the evaluation I was asked to write was based on pretty objective criteria. I don’t think someone else would have come to different conclusions, and he doesn’t hate me for it.

It still sucks. Especially since this person has tried so hard, wants to succeed so hard, puts in more hours than required and is nice to everyone. Oh, and he’s 60. Hard to find a new job at 60 in this economy. Just before Christmas

Sad day. I feel like crap. But then, probably not as much as he does…
