My 2 Week notice

Well I finally heard from my new company and should be able to turn in my 2 week notice tomorrow, after I get my written offer of course. I've been working on it but I don't know that I have it just right. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Dear Mien Fuer,

Sieg Hiel! This letter is to inform you of my intention of resigning my position in two weeks. I really do not feel that my skills match your requirements. Sure, I CAAAN work 140 hours every week, and I do realize that I would still get 4 hours to sleep every day but I would like to see the sunlight at sometime in my life. I've appreciated all the support you've given me, you always know the right questions to keep me thinking. Like that time you asked me, "Bruceleeroy, Do you know what your problem is?" I really had to stop and think, you know, unfortunately I don't. I realize now that I may have gone on with my life not realizing that my problem was that I could not read your mind. What could my life possibly have become if I can't grasp the concept of "we have to". Remember when we had 2 jobs that would both take 8 hours and they both needed to mail today. "It can't be done" I said, but in your infanant wisdom you replied "we have to". And the way you chewed me out when you committed to the CEO that both jobs would indeed mail and they didn't, pure inspiration. When you cut my staff because we had to cut cost and I said "how can I possibly run 8 machines with 5 operators???" Your reply, "we have to". And now that we are behind on those jobs and I am on a conference call everyday with a CEO that asks why there's a backlog....Your silence is appreciated, certainly I can handle that on my own. Isn't it funny that we moved our business to Nashville 9 months ago with 4 managers and in 2 weeks the last one will leave, replacing a combined 54 years of mailing experience with about 3 months? Maybe not. What about when the 1st manager quit and her staff reported to you and 2 of those 4 have quit? Probably just an odd 2 weeks.

Thanks for all the swell time Fuckers!

Sincerely,


The Last Dragon, Bruceleeroy

little off topic here, but I wanted to pass this along for everyone. In light of what happened to Brent I wanted to put this up here, and it is up on mine as well, move it to another post if you want, just read it, some may have already but its the truth.. Take care all. See ya in a week or two.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would videotape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time,
I would spare an extra minute or two
to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would know I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.

For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything right.

There will always be another day
to say "I love you,"
and certainly there's another chance
to say our "Anything I can do's?"

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget,
tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike.
And today may be the last chance you get
to hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you'll surely regret the day
that you didn't take that extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss,
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
whisper in their ear,
tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear.

Take time to say "I'm sorry,"
"please forgive me," "thank you," or "it's okay."
And if tomorrow never comes,
you'll have no regrets about today.
