TweedleFun was let go today. Mystic is leaving the company at the end of the month for grad school, so I was a bit late this morning due to trying to carry homemade cupcakes on an ill-balanced platter and I happened to run into TweedleFun getting into her car. After making a joke about her starting her day backwards – she should be exiting the car and entering the building, not the other way around – TweedleFun let me know that her boss had called her into his office and told her that there was no longer a spot at Anonymous Software Company for her.

After giving her my sincerest apologies, she climbed into her car and drove off. I’m in shock and Anonymous Software Company is in an uproar. TweedleFun was everything you hope an employee will be – prompt, willing to put forth extra effort, involved in various aspects of the company, and a hard worker. No one can figure out why she was let go.

She was part of the Social Committee and Local Community Engagement Committee. She founded and planned our monthly Lady’s Night as well as our bi-monthly luncheons. If you had a question, she would immediately respond with the answer or with the contact information of the person in charge. She was with the company for 19 years.

If she can be let go, who is safe?
