I haven’t finished the other parts of my update, which is still sitting in my drafts. Now I am here to write about something else. Something that is totally unexpected.
I mentioned in my first update that I’m quite swamped because my PKM just resigned. Some time last week, my team leader told me and Therese that Bong, our guy content editor also resigned to pursue personal goals. And today, after eating lunch, I had another bad news.
My routine during lunch time is to eat lunch and do my mommy thing afterwards. While I was doing my mommy thing, another officemate, Sel, knocked in the bathroom to check if it was me. She said, Nikki alam mo na? I can sense in her voice that it was some kind of a bad news. Earlier, I read an email from my TL where she said she has another news. But I never thought that it would be a bad one. After Sel knocked, she left and said that she’ll just wait for me. I was beginning to be tensed. I heard Therese call my name from the pantry (it’s right outside the bathroom). So I went out and asked her was is going on. Bimbo is already resigned.
Bimbo has been my manager since I entered Trend. I was a scholar back then and then became an intern then an employee. Our life before was simple but it evolved drastically over the past two years.
Why didn’t I get a feeling of this happening when he asked me how do I find his newly cleaned cube? It just felt terrible. As Therese said, it’s 3 in a row. He and I are the remaining members of the old team and on May 18, it would just be me.
I should not have anything against this. I know Bimbo have contributed a lot to Trend’s KM Team and he did a great job as the support portal manager. It just feel sad. I’m still speechless.
