That's pretty much it. I'd already decided to coach him this year regardless. He'll be fine, but needs a Bad Cop.
I spoke to HR a few minutes ago about something else and asked if I was being punished. Lots of laughter..."You've been chief longer than anyone else. I would think you'd be glad to stop!" And then an explanation about board actions and timelines and a list of other chiefs besides me that were all being stopped/started at the same time.

Still. I wanted to go out wearing the crown.

How do I feel? Betrayed.

Alrighty. I retire Jan 31 2019. Started with the company in 1987. Have been chief of the department I created for twenty years. 

Just got told that in 2018 - less than a year before I leave - they will take my title away and make someone else (the guy I chose to follow me) chief instead. No pay cut, but for the want of a few months I don't get to retire with the title.

I suppose it's not that big a deal, but it feels like it is. Will have been with the company for three decades, earned our version of an Oscar, have some of the highest customer satisfaction survey numbers consistently for as long as they've been measured, score a 4.3/5 on my "how's the chief doing" survey, and developed a department that folks call "ahead of the curve."

But now I remember what a friend told me during my first months working here: the company is a business, not a friendship. Sheesh.

Not really, but maybe really, this is what inspires people to game the system just short of embezzlement. Which I will deny.

Yesterday was 2 years since mom passed. And the damn rain isn't helping for the past 3 days. Then 6 months form now almost to the day, 24th, dad will be gone 20 years. It still feels like yesterday for both of them.

 
Yeah, sometimes you're just like, "I WANT MY MOMMY!" {#Hug}

I understand. Mom died in '98 and Daddy early on the first day of 2009. And my brother in 1974. Hope you get sunshine soon. That will help some. {#Sunny}
