Returning to Work

I returned to my previous job today and found little had changed:

  • Someone had broke the hydrogen sulfide generation and detection test unit, a complicated device whose mastery has given me the title “The fart whisperer”.
  • A coworker wished me a “happy Columbus Day Observed”.
  • Someone came in looking for test items that had been brought in on Friday.  My coworker was unsure where it was and he told the requester to “ask Terry, he’s been here for a while” except that I had been back for three hours at that point.
