I ran into a lot of my former co-workers today. It was a sad occasion, the wife of one of the photographers passed away this week after a long fight with cancer. I went to the funeral today and for the first time in more than a year, saw many of my friends from the tv station.
Everyone was very friendly, even the former station manager who’s now general manager walked over to say hello and shake hands. I saw my former news director sitting on the front row as the service was about to begin.
I spoke to the person sitting with her, shook his hand and then said hello to her and reached out to shake her hand too. Now, let me admit I didn’t expect any warm hugs but I didn’t expect the reaction I got. Instead of politely saying hello and shaking my hand, she crossed her arms and turned her head, leaving me standing there with my hand reached out and I’m sure a pretty weird look on my face.
Oh well, I won’t lose any sleep over it. A couple of my former co-workers saw the whole thing and asked me about it later. I suppose she may be a hater because of some things I’ve written on this blog, who knows?
Geesh, even the Indians sat down with the Pilgrims.
