The Vanishing

An office mate has gone AWOL. He also happens to be a good friend.

I had no clue why he suddenly abandoned his job. No goodbyes. Nothing.

At first, I couldn’t believe the news he was gone until I heard it from the big boss. I went to his desk and tried to search for clues. Nothing.

He just left. It’s that simple.

Weeks have passed and now certain things are unraveling. He made certain mistakes and now he must face the consequences.

Raft3r is now caught in the crossfire. I’m now torn between my friendship with him and my responsibilities at work.

Work is important to me. But so is friendship. A line needs to be drawn.

I wish him well.

That's sad. Separate work from friendship. Whatever needs to be done at work just has to get done. After office hours, drop everything and attend to your friend. He'll understand. Kung hindi, muay thai mo sya!

Amusing lang yung blogs nyo ni Juditigger that's why I go back and forth sa mga entries nyo. It's like diarrhea of the brain (in a good way!) Keep the thoughts flowing, dude!

i hope your friend's fine. but he has to face the consequences of his action. yun lang talaga ang solusyon sa kung anuman ang problema nya.
