Yesterday was my first real day on the new job. No more training, just go in, log in to the phones and start taking calls.
At almost the exact instant that I sat down at my desk and logged in, on the other end of the call center, a man slumped over at his desk.
A few people from the call center performed CPR until the paramedics arrived. The EMS team rushed him off to the hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Last I heard, there was still no known reason for his collapse. It has been attributed to a possible coronary arrest or aneurism, and in all likelihood probably something he was unaware he was in danger of having.
Life is short, Live it well.
