There are certain things about my job that just piss me off.
One of the worst things is understanding that at the end of the semester I am going to lose employees. High turnover rates in my line of work are a constant. It's just the way it works. People come to Podunk, MN for college. Then they move back home (except for a rare few). Either way, I'm stuck in Podunk, and they move on. It is just sad when you have someone that has worked with you for a couple of years graduate and move on.
The hard part is, I never seem to get over the emotion that sets in with the moving on. I'm completely happy that they are moving on with their lives, starting a new life in new cities, etc., etc., etc. But that doesn't seem to make it any better.
I hate the end of semesters....
