Turmoil at work...but what else is new?

Okay, so the other day Jimmy quit. He just suddenly left for Iowa to be near his son, didn't say goodbye to anyone. Doesn't bother me. Yeah, Jimmy was pretty cool, but I still don't care that much.

Alicia's freaking out about it, though. She liked Jimmy, a lot, and something like this happened to her before. Some guy she liked left her suddenly without saying goodbye, and it really hurt her. She has yet to get over it, and now it's happened again. She wouldn't even beleive it at first. She walked around all afternoon at work repeating, "he has to work tomorrow at 2. He has to show up. He'll be here, he has to work tomorrow at 2..." Then she accused us of making it up. She said it was a joke and we were all in on it. Doing it just to hurt her. Well fuck you too, Alicia.

I'm sorry Alicia, I know it probably hurt you more than I can know, but still, you're taking it a little too far. Dressing like a widow? Wearing all black for a week? That's fucking ridiculous.

You're not the only person who's ever been hurt.
