One of my bosses (the cuddly teddy bear turned grouchy snarly grrrr ole bear) keeps saying, We need to have a going away party for you! When is your last day again????
I wonder if he’s considering giving me one of these cakes….
Actually, it won’t be a cake.
He wants to have a happy hour get together.
Nothing says goodbye like adding a little alcohol to the mix so peeps can really “jokingly” let loose on me.
Hmmm. No thanks.
Although I have been shown a lot more love from the others as the days have passed.
They have realized…
- Yes, I really am leaving and was at least kind enough to let you know personally.
- Yes, I am moving heaven and earth to hook all of you up, as well as my replacement (which I don’t think has been done in the past).
- Yes, I am working my buns off up to the very last minute (to which one shared, I wouldn’t be lifting a finger if it was my last day).
Even with all of this, somehow I don’t see them wanting to get a drink with me.
My boss has a meeting later today that is scheduled to go over my getting off time, and I hope it sticks.
I’ll be more than happy to meet up with them for a future REGULAR happy hour.
This past Monday was awesome because the new girl was there and I got to focus solely on training her, and of course everyone pretty much left us alone.
And when they did come around, they were on their best behavior, which is how they do act 90% of the time in real life! hahaha
She wasn’t able to come in yesterday, and probably won’t be in today.
That is just as well in my world since last night I was handed a can you pull a miracle out of that magic hat of yours and format this financial statement to compare two years versus the one, on top of doing your normal job while finishing up that manual you are putting together for the new employee. Please, thanks and you are the greatest.
My day is going to fly by today, and for that I am grateful.
All signs are pointing to them not needing much of my help after I leave, which is also a relief so I can focus on my new job and yoga.
My new employer was gracious enough to accept my request to start next Monday versus tomorrow.
I so didn’t think that one through when I first said that I could start tomorrow.
It turns out I need a break, to let go of one job, relax a little and do some things for me, and then begin a new job on Monday.
Thank God for my IT guy’s comment of I hope you have some time off between the two.
DUH!!! Why didn’t I originally think of that???!!!
Oh that’s right, I usually rush to take care of others and forget that I am more pleasant to be around and function much better when I take a breather and take care of myself first.
And there is no way on God’s green earth that I am telling my today employer that I have Thursday and Friday off. No way in hell.
As far as they know, I am starting my new job tomorrow and I will just steer clear of their part of town when I need to be out and about.
Anyway, they will be more than fine. They have the chick that I butt heads with occasionally, who is well versed in covering her stuff and the things that I do, just enough to keep it going until the new person is ready to rock.
So, today is my last day…..
