Kindness

So this week is my last with my current company. While it is a little sad because I will miss the people, they are a great group of people, I will NOT miss the drama and craziness. I have had some very kind comments made to me as people hear the news that I am leaving. It truly touches my heart when they tell me that they will miss me.

When I came here, I firmly believed I could change the world and fix all the problems within the company and get it headed in the right direction. Little did I know, they didn't really want someone to come in and change the world. I think they only hired me because they are "supposed" to have an HR person on staff. It really has been quite comical over the last 6 months or so. They want to know the right way to do something, they just want to be able to do it there way...the two don't really go hand in hand.

But back to the kindness. The field guys are up to something...I know it. I had one call yesterday and ask for a photo because he was going to build a memorial :) He said that I was the only one that has ever fought for them. He is right...but that was my job. It was my job to look out for the best interest of the company....AND the employees. It was my job to make sure things flowed smoothly for all parties involved. Anyway....another field guy asked me what size shirt I wear.... HUH?? why in the world do you need to know that? I didn't ask. I figured why ruin the surprise. They are all super sweet. Just a group of good ol' boys...super rough on the exterior but amazing once you get to know them. I think they really needed someone to come in and take care of them and make sure that they weren't always getting the short end of the stick.

They will be truly missed.

It's nice when people appreciate what you have done for them, that is not always the case.

Aww, leaving a job (no matter how much you dislike it) is always hard. Let us know how it goes!
