What’s old is new. What’s new is old. People are supposedly boomeranging. I may have just made up a word. Before- a mere four months ago-everyone was resigning. Now, those who resigned want back. They had thought the grass would be greener but only came to find out you may be better off with the devil you know.
Tom Brady retired. But now he’s back. He wasn’t gone long enough to have grown a beard or mustache. He wasn’t gone long enough for us to have missed him. Well, I don’t like and thus would never miss him. But you get the point.
Just in case, let me explain who is a boomerang person. A boomerang employee is an employee who leaves a company they work for, but then later returns to work for the company once again.
To boomerang or not to boomerang? My philosophy is go and stay gone. This boomerang thing is weird. Think about it. Even if the grass isn’t greener elsewhere, you still left for a reason. Even if you learned things are bad everywhere doesn’t mean you automatically will love your old place.
Another bad fallout from a boomerang employee? Let’s go back to Tom Brady. A now very unlucky Brady fan paid more than half a million dollars for the last football Tom Brady threw in an NFL game before retiring last season. Guess what though. That ball’s worth deflated pretty quickly. And if you follow football or don’t like Brady, you’ll get that pun. Basically that half a million dollar ball has now lost much of its value after Brady said he’s coming back to the Buchaneers. Ouch! I’m not too sure what the lesson learned is here but it’s a pretty pricey one.
