Janie has left the building.
Today, I finished all the menial things that happen when you leave a job. It was a great day, and everybody was so awesome – at both the old job, and the new one. I finally left, about 4:45 p.m., and went with MLH to the new office to start arranging it.
Yesterday, at my old job, we had a meeting, trying to further finalize a project I’ve been working on with customers. The customer meeting lasted way longer than we expected (a good sign), and I had promised to meet one of my bosses to do my exit interview at 3 p.m. He called me once, and I told him we were still in a meeting, but that as soon as we finished, I’d be there.
I arrived back at my office, grabbed water, and went into my boss’ office. He wasn’t feeling well, so I was grateful that he had waited on me. Here’s how it went…
Boss: Are you hot? Is it hot in here?
Janie: No. Not at all…you’re just feeling funky. I’m good.
Boss: I gotta get out of here. Let’s go to another room where the sun’s not beating through the windows.
We trek to the east side of the office, and he makes like he’s going into the big conference room.
Janie: Hey, we can’t go in there – someone’s having a meeting!
Boss: Oh, no, let’s just see who it is.
Janie: That will be rude.
Boss opens door…and all my coworkers are there, patiently waiting…on me. We had a huge party, and they made me tell stories. It was a blast.
And once again, I was highly honored, and blessed.
I’ll miss each and every one of them.
