I have in my possession the separation package AOLTW is offering me. It came in one of those paper-cardboard navy blue Oxford pocket folders I used to store all my class notes back in junior high school, at least for the classes that didn’t require a lot of note-taking. Like art class. There isn’t a whole lot to these agreements. I go that way, they go another way, they help tide over the transition period, I agree to certain things, blah blah blah. This is actually new to me, as it’s the first time I’ve left a position without resigning.
Anyway, the point is that when I pulled out the documents, I discovered something else in the folder. A little bonus parting gift from a former employer, as it were. Just their way of saying thanks for all the work I’d done over the past couple of years. I almost fell out of my chair laughing.
Ah irony, thou cruel and playful mistress. Why do I love thee so?
You’d think they could have sent along a bunch of them for me to use. Like, six or maybe eight of them. You know?
