View Full Version : Coworker is Retiring [cheer emoji]

03-28-2019, 02:26 PM
The coworker who's been a thorn in my side since I started working here is retiring. Her last day is tomorrow. :wave::party:

Early in posting here, I called her the Aneurysm Waiting to Happen (http://www.customerssuck.com/board/showthread.php?t=42646), and I also complained about her here (http://www.customerssuck.com/board/showthread.php?t=38760), here (http://www.customerssuck.com/board/showthread.php?t=35618), here (http://www.customerssuck.com/board/showthread.php?t=89671), and here (http://www.customerssuck.com/board/showthread.php?t=95098). I'm sure there's also many posts on the "To that one co-worker" thread, but I'm not going to search for those.

CW has spent the week clearing out her desk, handing off stuff to other CWs, and dusting. We're having a pot luck on her last day tomorrow, and we all signed a card.

I want to cheer. I'm going to have a few drinks to celebrate after work tomorrow. I think the work environment is going to be MUUUCH better after she's gone.

She's more worried about inconsequential things like who's going to shovel snow or weed the flowers than anything that actually matters. She's such a control freak that she said she'll come back this summer to plant flowers and weed them for us. :rolleyes: Nobody actually wants that.

Last week, she volunteered me to go to the Chamber of Commerce meetings on behalf of the bank. (At least until we get a new manager, she said. Which is a whole separate rant.) Also since the Chamber of Commerce is hosted by a different business each month, she tried to get me to volunteer the bank to host next month's meeting. But nobody brought up where the next meeting would be held, including me.

But nevermind that. This is supposed to be a thread celebrating Annoying CW's retirement. Let's get turnt! :drink::party::cheers:

Twenty freaking years, and nobody has: snapped and done grievous bodily harm, fired her, (AHEM!)-slapped some sense into her, talked some sense into her, (AHEM!)-slapped her in general, fired her, demoted her to where she belongs, etc.

Also impressive: Twenty years of being stuck so far up in her own... head... that no clue by four has ever reached her. She still believes that she's the perfect worker and everyone loves her.

Still surprising that she hasn't had that long denied aneurysm yet, either. Oh wait, she was giving those out to her fellow workers in small doses, daily.

Congrats on you all being freed from her.

She sounds insane, yay for being gone! I think we all have at least one CW we would like to see the last of.

I am surprised that you did not have the going away party on Monday.

All people bring joy to a room.
Some when they enter.
Some when the leave.

So how is it now without AWTH? Any time bombs go off yet? Or were discovered? Who's the poor sap who inherited her duties?

So far, it's just like she's on vacation. The Head Teller is doing most of her duties, though it's been spread out among 4 employees, including me. Truth is, she hasn't been doing that much actual work for more than a year. Management has decided that most of her duties should be done by someone at the main branch -- mostly, I think, because she fought every little change and couldn't be relied on to follow procedures correctly. The biggest portion of her "work" seemed to be butting her nose into things that didn't need her input and complaining about everything.
