can't get no satisfaction

I don’t know what I expected. That they would break down and cry perhaps.

But naah. This is how it went.

Me: Okay, I just want to tell you guys, I’ve quit.

Pause. Where I hope they’ll go white and faint.

Them: Oh. Okay. We knew.

Me: whaaat?

Five minutes later. I try another set of people.

Me: Hey, just thought I should tell you, I’ve put in my papers.

Pause. Where I’m hoping, please, please, let them screech and tear their hair in horror.

But no.

Them: Ya. We heard.

What the fuck. This place is worse than a sieve. I told two people a week back, and now the whole office knows. Robbing me of my moment of glory.

By the way, I just tried the canteen guy, hoping the tea tray would slip from his hand. But he just nodded and said, “Bahut pehle malum tha.”

Bloody hell, are they all taking classes from Hugh Grant?

Not even one upper lip trembled.

I remember the time when I had to pretend to the rest of the team that the news came as a shock to me. My colleague was very pleased that I did it so well!

As the Mind Meanders said...

Oh No!

Don't tell me... this is shocking... what do we do with the clothes now... :-)

I do hope whatever you do in the future allows you to use the gorgeous clothes that you used to wear at work...
