A Matter of Time

He finished talking and I debated what to say.  He’d been on a long tirade and I agreed with most of it, but I didn’t want to hear more.  I simply said, “I know what you mean.”

Derrick had been ranting about changes at work. How the company was pushing out the old timers and hiring part-timers.  I agree.  I’ve been here more than ten years and it happens every winter.  I wanted to tell Derrick to keep his head down and do his work, but he is always so vocal.  I honestly don’t think he will last the week.
