I feel horrible. We were hired together (on the same day) a little over a year ago and today I watched him pack his stuff and leave the building for the last time. It sucks because he just bought a house a few months ago and he has a two year old kid. I wish I could quit to show solidarity, but I need this job to pay my own mortgage. What sucks even more is my boss has been itching to do this for months now (personality conflicts) and it really sucks to see him strutting around all proud of himself. Its days like this I wish I were independently wealthy so I could throw a match behind me and move on.
