Awkward. That’s what people being made redundant is – especially people you actually like. There’s the awkward moment when they tell you they’re being canned. The awkward emotional tangle of emotions while your facial expressions struggle to keep up. The awkward speeches, awkward cake-eating, awkward card-signing. It’s, well, a bit awkward. Recently some colleagues of mine left work and I was sad to see them both go. They’re both solid blokes. So, because I express my emotion via the medium of music (in a cosmic way, of course), I made them a playlist for their final day in the office. I don’t really know if it was appreciated, but they at least smirked. Sometimes in life, that’s all you can hope for, right?
