So, I'm coming up on my last week of work, and I handed in my resignation, so it's official! I'm leaving work and I'm starting school. I just signed my last loan (holy shit it's a lot) the other day. But this is a bitter sweet victory......
My boss was on vacation when I let the company (and him) know that I was leaving, and the day he was supposed to come back, he never showed up. Then when I actually saw him, he said "hi". I asked him how his trip was, and that was it....he didn't mention a word about my leaving. Oh well, whatever. At least he's not being a dick, which I thought would happen......so that's good. But here's where the bitter sweet part comes in......
I can't believe I'm leaving, but I'm really excited for the things to come (and a little nervous). I have to say that I'll miss the people who were there for me and made my time there tolerable. They actually made my time at work something to look forward to. They listened to my bitching, they listened to my happiness, but most of all, my bitching; the whole time keeping me happy. Those are the people I'll miss the most. I will stay in touch with them because they really made a difference. I mean, to have people who care enough to listen when you talk and who are happy to see you and share their lives; that's exceptional.
While there are a few people who mean a tremendous amount to me at work, there are two guys who really stand out. I always get coffee with them and they have made my life better just by being there and being my friend. They listened to my complaints, they listened to my strategy to get into something else, and the whole time, they have been supportive, and have kept me laughing. They really made my time at work drastically different. They took a situation that I hated and made it into something I looked forward to. For that, I can't thank them enough. And to these guys, (we'll call them snake eyes and sweet chocolate M Smoove)I owe thanks because they made my job something that, in the middle of the day, I didn't hate, but actually enjoyed in that I had time to hang out with them; talking about whatever and everything. Looking forward to coffee breaks (no matter how late I was getting there or how much they had to put off what they were doing to make time for me) it always made it worth being there. While they always had something important to do while i was just getting through the day, they took time, and made it something that was valuable to me. My day became interesting, enjoyable and hilarious. I wish the best for them and their families. These are two people I will never forget and whom I will be honored to keep in touch. I don't know if I told them that, but I hope they know now. I really appreciate that, and I'm glad that they kept me from being so miserable that I was found at my desk drooling with a glass of scotch in my hand only to be found later in the bathroom in a pile of my own mess and on my way to the loony bin and or jail. Thanks guys. I'll miss joe, but we'll need to make time to do it in the future.
Well, I just felt the need to write that (I thought this would be less gay than writing you guys a personal card with butterflies and glitter on the front........).
Hope all is well.
