Some Sarcasm About Office Farewell
Posted May 16, 2013on:
Bulan-bulan ini cukup banyak resignation di kantor, dan seperti biasa, kami lakukan ritual perpisahan dengan berkumpul di breakout sambil makan-makan, doing this farewell ceremony dengan ‘pidato’ perpisahan, kesan pesan, foto-foto, acara berlinang air mata, pemberian kado, peluk-memeluk, dan sejenis itu.
If I were in their position, I told myself, that I’m not gonna go through those ‘courtesy’ ritual held by people that actually don’t care anything about me and just be there on the spot to enjoy the food. Really, nobody really care about your leaving. All is about food, about chitchat and gather with your colleagues, sweet, motivating words, and people talk the good things about you, that’s all.
Again, if it’s me, I would prefer to ‘stay calm and leave the office soon’ without having those pressure and becoming a circus show performer to be watched and observed by everybody. I don’t need good words, good testimonial, anything. I just need my reference letter, that’s it. I can’t stand a fake sad face of people who seems that they gonna miss me.
Well I don’t mind receiving a nice gift, but just give it to me, no need the taking-picture procedures and no need to launch my biggest smile, expressing my happiness receiving the gift and admitting my friends’ care and attention, saying fake ‘thank you all.. that’s so nice of you,.’, especially if I don’t really like the present :p
Last thing that I always made is a farewell notes to everybody in the office, and it usually not an ordinary notes. In 3 previous company before, I made a very customize note by email, something deep and very personal to everybody in one email. Sometimes I made it in a joke template, sometimes I made it into poem, and so many more.. My friends once asked my permit to copy the note for their resgination note someday (:p) and I regret that I didn’t keep the copy for my file.
In my current office, I has also planned to write some positive and negative things to certain people. I’ll leave, so nothing to lose. Something sarcasm will be interesting and people will memorize dan remember me as a history – that’s my evil dream 😀
So that’s my crazy opinion about office farewell.. Cheers..
