He has texted me several times already to ask questions about things we already went over. I did tell him that he has 4 or 5 weeks before that number will no longer be valid. I am changing numbers when I get to WV. Probably sooner rather than later. They threw me a little going away party. I specifically told them I did not want a big send off. I heard it through the grapevine that they had planned a huge event. It was nice to know that they planned it but I know many would only show up because of free food, not because they wanted to see me and wish me well. The one thing that hurt a bit was my Sr. Exec. Director and my Sr. Director, men that I worked hard for, made look good on numerous occasions and performed the job of 3 people for never bothered showing up or even calling that they couldn’t make it due to a feigned busy schedule or emergency meeting - I had access to their calendars. I guess they forgot. AND they also have my personal number so they could have tested or even called after the fact. Oh well. I need a little advice… Here’s the thing. My old Sr. Exec. Director had a plaque made up for me. Actually it is a mock “bus stop sign”. A very cheaply made bus stop sign they had done at the agency sign shop at a very low cost. First of all, I hate buses. I have never worked on “bus side”, as they call it and, on top of that, there has always been a bitter rivalry between bus and rail at this agency. Here’s the plaque. It’s approx. 16” X 18” Honestly, this thing is an insult to me. Both of these honchos knew darn well it would be, I’m sure. The real kicker is I have over 18 years total with this agency and they put “3 years”? Gimme a break. I have considered a couple of options and I would like your advice. 1. Mail it back to them with a note stating my displeasure with them. 2. Use it as a target and send them a photo of the results. 3. Use it as a target then toss it. 4. Throw it away and be done with it. What say you? Put it the outhouse so that the odor will cause corrosion and decay upon its shiny surface. You can face it to the wall if you prefer. Good Luck in you new endeavors. Just relax and enjoy yourself and your wife. CJ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
