First and foremost, she is okay. That’s what matters, not my annoyance with the whole situation. She is okay!!
Secondly, what a stupid ending to the story. She gave me a lot of worry when she really didn’t have to. The outcome wasn’t what I was expecting, but hey… it’s her life.
What happened? She got married.
She eloped with someone she met in Indonesia, shortly after getting there, and they decided to go on their ‘honeymoon’ last week. I’m not sure how much of honeymoon happens when you’ve married someone you’ve known for like 72 hours. But, hey, again, her life.
When HR did get in touch with her and she told them what happened and how they were in a part of the country without access to service/internet, they didn’t take to kindly to the story.
They reached out to her and finally got in touch on Saturday (Jan 14) after her being AWOL and off grid for six days. She was just like ‘Oh yeah, I quit.’ I read the updates from HR this morning and reached out to her on Instagram to confirm, and she says it’s true. Sent me a video DM of her and her new husband – such a bizarrreeeeeeeee story.
Apparently she just went a tiny bit crazy, married a man she barely knew and had LITERALLY just met, and they went off grid for a honeymoon. She says she’s staying in Indonesia to be with him and that he’s going to support her with his job.
I wish her well.
I’m annoyed that she caused me so much unnecessary worry, but I am glad that she is okay. This sounds like a recipe made for disaster, so I wish her well and I hope she stays safe.
Now I need to find a new SEO Specialist, rather abruptly.
I’m presently already combing through resumes for a graphic designer. So, you know, if anyone wants a job. (I’m kidding, but not really, but still kidding, but also… so many job interviews coming…..)
