Today, I'm still reeling over the unexpected loss of my co-worker. I also received a notification that my workload would be increased to more than twice what is was before. FML

I guess your coworker might not be the only one leaving that job...sorry for your loss & for your boss OP.

If only the double of work brought the double of dough it would be perfect

I...I don't think the coworker left...

Well, he left this plane of existence anyway

That's horrible! I'm sorry for your loss. ):

I don't think OP would consider the situation to be perfect, even if they were paid double. Their coworker did die unexpectedly...

I can see your workload doubling after the death of your co-worker, but you said "more than twice" Did you bury Superman?

Maybe the coworker had more job duties to begin with. Or else OP has to take up the workload of the departed coworker AND pick up the slack from the people that took a few days off to grieve.

Or OP is responsible for both picking up shifts and training a new employee.

I can see why you're reeling

Let me guess, and there will be no increase in subsequent pay because of this?

yeah thats when you inform them that you will also me earning twice as much money unless they dont want the work done

Well it's easy for the boss to put the blame on him then since he would be all about the money although his co-worker died. It's a bad situation.

Why is it that seemingly everyone that posts an fml about their co worker gives the impression that there's always just the two of them?

Maybe it was just the two of them in their department. Or it's a small company. That could explain why the loss affected OP so much.

Sorry for your loss op :(

I'm sorry for your loss OP. But don't let your work exploit you! Set a time limit that you'll do the extra work, brush up your resume, and look for another job if they don't start the interviews.
