Random thoughts of an upbeat mind

Not a secret anymore

Most in my office are now aware of my departure. The feedback has been both happy for me and mad that I’m leaving as I get along with all of my coworkers. There is an underlying feeling of jealousy that I am leaving the mad house.

I was able to tell my friend I have lunch with ever day before the news hit the streets. She is upset that I am going as we spend a lot of time together. I have been more frequently talking her off the ledge as the stress is getting to her. Then it hit her that I have accounts that will need to be transitioned and her face fell.

My manager continues to look stressed and overwhelmed. My heart goes out to her. I have made a bad situation much worse. The VP has scheduled a one on one with my lunch friend next week. I think this is a temperature check and a bid to convince her not to jump ship. I hope my friend can parlay this into some financial gain. It may help ease her pain.

I am glad that everyone now knows. It was interesting to see how fast news travels. My manager had a meeting with our team of 5 to make the announcement. At the end of the meeting she eluded that it was not anyone else’s business but mine to share this news. By the time I got back to my desk, 2 people who were not in the meeting were asking me where I was going. *smh*

8 more work days to go.
