Just Working For A Living

Others went before me and others followed behind me and when I'm not even remembered, even newer workers will be there in the spaces that I used to occupy.

That's how it works. No one is indispensable. I continued to work a long while at Mosquito University after my father retired from it. It was long enough to see that others of less skill or willingness to do the work well could nonetheless do the work, satisfy the bosses, could "carry on". When I left there, I had no illusions about how organizations go on without the individual.

Abandon hope, all ye who enter here! (At least put on your socks and pants.)
