So the D day was finally here, my last working day in my current company arrived and I woke up bright and early. Well maybe not so bright but certainly early. I slept quite late at 2am and woke up 4 hours later. However, I didn’t want to face the day and so curled back into my bed and wrapped my self in my sheets. However I did have to go to the office and so I finally did drag me outta bed. I left late and arrived at 10:30 am
I sat at my desk basically staring at my system and replying to a few emails. I chatted with anyone who came to sit and have a chat. I spent time with my team members. Post lunch I went to both the floors of the call center and said my goodbyes to people I knew well. That took me a good enough duration. The afternoon turned to evening and dragged on. By 5:30 pm I was asked to come to the pantry area where a few people had gathered to let me say my farewells. I started tearing up over there and rushed to the men’s room to wash my face and then tried to hid my face behind a cup of coffee.
Then HR started the ball rolling by speaking about me and my leaving the organization. Then it was the turn of some of the other employees to speak about me and I was surprised at what nice things they said. The tears started running again and as I looked at my team members they were all crying. Finally it was my turn and I managed to squeak out a few sentences and said thanks. Then it was time to cut the cake and pose for a few pictures. I hope that HR will send them to me a little later. I got a few gifts, so take a look.
The peacock, a huge thingy that I am so gonna use to decorate my new place when I finally do move there, is from my team members. I just love it. I’m not sure what it is made out off.
The HR AM gifted me with a Parker pen as did my team members; the one on the right is from the team. There’s also a standee-plaque that says good wishes and some writing on it.
Another girl from HR had gifted me a calendar cum beautiful/inspiration quotes thing which you can put on your table. I promised her that I would keep it on my work desk as soon as I start work in the new office.
This is from the two sweet girls from recruitment.Very nice.
