He Almost Started Crying...

I told my MAIN boss today that I was leaving and his face just dropped.  He was so upset.  He almost started crying I told him....Don't you dare because if you do I will.

I will miss Mark because he was a great boss.  He listened to me when I had a concern.  He is good at fixing things between people.

I will miss everyone there alot, but I have to think of my future.  He even told me that he himself was going to school and would be leaving soon.

I think this is just God's way of watching out for me.

My last day there will be Oct. 28.  I start my new job on Oct. 31.

I guess that will be an easy day to remember when I started :)

I know it is the right path, it will just be hard to say goodbye to some of the people there.

Others I will be happy to be rid of.....

On to bigger and better things.

Mark also said if I do not like it I can always come back that he would hire me back in a heart beat.

That was nice to hear.

He tried to talk me out of it, but realized I was making a smart decision and sent me with his blessings and good luck.

I really don't think I will be going back, but at least if I decide to I will know the door is open for me.

I guess I won't be Employee of the Month anymore......

One of the new girls today told me that I was the nicest one there and that she was so glad to have someone that would help her out.

She was so sad when I told her that I was leaving.

Hopefully the rest of the gang will help the new ones along.

I will of course worry about them.

I will still be able to visit with them when I grocery shop but it won't be the same.

It is hard to say goodbye.

It is hard to say good bye sometimes but like you said before, you will be shopping there and will get to see the people then.  I'm just so happy that you won't have to be at work at "0'dark thirty"  anymore and that you'll have regular days off.  It will be'll see.  The last day at the store, just pretend you're going on vacation and that will help you not to cry as you walk out the door for the last time as an employee.  I hope they have a nice party for you before you go.

At least you will still be in the same town and can even call or stop by whatever. It could be worse and you are making a positive move. Paula

Yep, it is.
Whether you've worked there one year or twenty years, leaving is hard.
You make freinds.............
And its hard not to see them again.
Working together can be such fun when theres team work...
Good Luck with the new job.

It's good you're going out on a high, Barbara - who says you won't be Employee of the Month in your new job??

I have watched your journal for quite awhile although I dont always comment.  It was my feeling that you were never fully appreciated in your current job or valued for the efforts you put in.  With your new job, it may open many new opportunities for you.  While one door closes another opens and as you walk through it it may make life far more intersting and rewarding.  May I wish you the best in your new position.  It is indeed hard to leave behind employees you have worked with for so long, being able to go back and shop there does help though.  Best of luck to you.

Yes you must think of your own future ~ I know you will soon make a lot of new friends at your new job ~ It is always hard to say goodbye to old friends but I don't doubt you will keep in touch with some of your old colleagues ~ Ally x
