What now?

Sigh. My favorite pressmen Kirk is going to Dayshift...starting Friday!!!! I knew it was going to happen, I just didn't expect it this soon. What am I going to do now? There are things that Kirk does that the other night pressmen don' coming to get plates at midnight when things are running late from editorial. Like putting on plates soon after he gets them. It so irks me when I've busted my aching buns to get plates out there and they're left to sit while they go take a smoke break. This is ok if we're on time, but the incident I'm thinking of was a night when we were running late.

And I wonder if I'll get to see him any more at all. The last time he was on days, for the six week rotation that they all had to go through, I only saw him once and that was a fluke b/c he was leaving later then usual and I was earlier than usual. Of course, I was moving at taht time and didn't have time to stop by like I have a habit of doing. I did try calling though, and he was never home! Maybe I ought to just give him my number and say, "If you ever miss me, give me a call."

I got at least three smiles from him tonight. Not that I was counting. Or looking for them. :)

ps. Jean-Luc, I did reply to your comment down below.

I think you should give him your number. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I would say this move is his last chance. If he fails to respond after giving your number, you should definately move on.

well, that's exactly what I did. I wrote it down on a piece of paper and gave it to him right before I left. Now --- the waiting! Tonight is his last night, and I have off, but if Jerry says it's ok, I might bake up some brownies and take them in for the crew...a pitful farewell after 20+ years on nightshift, but it's all I got. It's the thought that counts, right?
