When you get a postcard sent to your home that says "We miss you", signed by 10 different coworkers, including your previous superiors full of comments like "I wish I was on your team, where exactly IS your office?"... and stuff like "We need you to come back to our monthly team meeting. MAYBE AS A GUEST SPEAKER!" and one of my favourites: "Damn you."

My boss asked me if we were still on for me to resign this week. He and I have been waiting about a month.

Did somebody actually write **** you on a postcard and send it to you?

Yea. I thought it was hilarious. It was one postcard filled with everyone's signatures.

funny stuff. I passed by the office yesterday and 2 people thought it was awfully nice of me to drop by the office again after having resigned... I still have a month on my contract.

I'm worse off... My manager came over and asked me, "So when are you leaving?" and I haven't even resigned yet!

Good bye promotion

My boos has even stopped mentioning my name in the meetings even if I am present in meeting. He always mentions the person who will be my replacement.

I thought you were going to apply for 2008. So why are you leaving in near future?

maybe his boss is assuming he is resigning a year from now?

His boss is thinking, who'll do my presentations when he's gone
