My last day of work, and they are really making it worth coming in.
29 emails saying they were upset to find out I was being laid off and sad to see me go, wishing me luck and happiness.
One e-card from a department wishing me well.
A real card from the guys at the datacenter thanking me for my hard work
-5-people- 6 people demanding I take down their personal emails to be used as references.
3 new friend requests on Facebook.
Weird txts from a former coworker out of the blue who tells me he's doing fine, and good for him.
More conversations about favorite video games to kill time with (as I have espoused to be doing all next week with my free time.) than I could shake a stick at.
Pizza courtesy of one of my buddies in Ops.
No less than 8 phone conversations from people wanting to thank me for my help with their issues.
I had no idea I'd made such an impact or garnered such a fan base. I almost feel bad, except it wasn't my decision to leave.
It's nice to be appreciated. I think the glow of this might carry me for a bit and bolster me while I'm interviewing in the coming weeks.
