last days

August 3, 2010

Today was my last day working at Rejuvenation. I rode in at 7:30am, like always, spent several hours finishing a tedious project, cleaned out the the crumbs and scraps of paper in my cube, ate some cookies and made a couple rounds of good-byes. I hit the lunch room at 11:30am to say so long to a handful of people who work in manufacturing, people I didn’t work with directly, but almost always talked to when our paths crossed. Their friendliness was something I could count on; even when we ran into some language barrier stuff, we marched on talking about the weather. Today, I sat down at a table next to Sisco, this great guy who’s worked at Rejuve for over 20 years. I told him today was my last day and that I was leaving Rejuvenation and even though we didn’t work together a lot I was glad to have gotten to know him. Sisco thanked me and wished me luck and then as I was walking away he said, “Is your name Liz?” This is a guy I’ve said hello to almost every work day for 4 years and he got the company email that said “Liz” was leaving. I just laughed and said, “Yep, that’s my name”.

I got to know some really fine people during the 4 years I worked there and I will miss their company for sure. It was such an agonizing decision to leave. I almost teared up a couple times saying goodbye.
