Two people retired from the same department on the same day.
One had been there for over 18 years. The other, a little over 7 years.
The 7 year teacher had a lot of friends. The 18 year vet was outspoken but had done a lot of good things for the department.
A party was made for the 7 year teacher while the other one was ignored. In fact, the other one had no idea that there was even a party until this person called on the day of the party and said the other one should attend. The other person's feelings were hurt. After 18 years, the only status left was that of the invisible man.
What I don't understand is why this person had to say anything? This person had to know how hurtful the phone call would be. I've always claimed this person has a mean, spiteful streak and once again I am proven correct.
