4 Friends from my Old Job

There are four people who I have kept in contact with, somewhat, since leaving that old job. I worked there eight years. Should I have come away with more friends? I should have kept in contact with more of them? It’s just pure laziness. Or, it’s mostly laziness…plus something else. I don’t know…shame? The insatiable urge to only look forward? The lack of time? I have a lot of people to keep track of – family, I mean. Enough family -with enough issues- to keep me fully engaged.

Four friends, after eight years. Is that a good ratio? One friend for every two years at that crummy outfit? By friends, I mean: I’ve told them my whole story. I’ve gotten drunk with them. I have trusted them, and they have come through for me. They have trusted me, and I have come through for them. We have had our outs. We have had our ins. I could pretty much say anything to them and they wouldn’t be surprised or alarmed.

    Those are worth holding on to, maybe the list gets shorter as we get older…

    Sometimes friends slowly become old friends. I guess as long as you still trust them then they are considered your friends still. Sounds like you guys had something decent going on. As long as I enjoy talking to someone then I will keep in contact with them.
