It’s been a week since my last day, but I wanted to talk about how people often show their true colors. On my last day, my boss and some other co-workers came in and started pillaging my room. They just came in, starting removing things (without even asking what was mine!) and carrying it out. They didn’t even say “I’m sorry,” or “Goodbye” or “Good luck.” My direct superior certainly did not say anything of the sort to me. I found that shocking, especially considering I was laid off, NOT terminated for cause. For heaven’s sake, I remember a couple of years ago (at a different place) when a former co-worker of mine was terminated for cause. We did not treat him like that! We said goodbye and told him to keep in touch.
It was shocking, but very telling, in my opinion. It made me think that, money excepted, I was lucky to be laid off from such a place.
