Volume XIII: Answering the Mail

commutingsuicidelogo2.jpg

Since our little logo contest, I've gotten a surprising amount of e-mail from readers. OK, five e-mails. But still, surprising. One of the e-mails included an especially intriguing passage:

"i'm quitting my job. can you help me write a good good-bye message to my coworkers?"

Since I myself just completed the highly underrated Two-Weeks-Notice period, I felt compelled to help. After trading emails, we crafted a few paragraphs his colleagues won't soon forget.

A lot has changed since I came on board in December of '03. Back then, a monthly Metrocard cost $70. The war in Iraq was spinning dangerously out of control. And this company was an unprofitable black hole, where morale was low and career development nonexistent.

Today, a monthly Metrocard costs $76.

Let me thank a few people. First, Maureen, the Director of Human Resources at my new company, for handing me that offer letter.

Actually, I'm good on thanking people.

Someone asked me why I would leave now. "We're turning this ship around," I was told. I have to respectfully disagree. This ship is not only not turning around, we've been swimming around its sunken carcass for the last eight months.

Let your severance packages be fruitful.

I'm posting this here to encourage more questions. Just email me. I've got time.

Here's a ticket for the Commuting Suicide archives. And if you're the obscure t-shirt type, you don't get more obscure than the crap in our store.

I haven't been in a bus or on a train here in Chicago in over 5 years, I think.

Funny enough, I still have a bus pass with $100 on it in my wallet. One dsay, I might just use it.

My 'job' where I sit and do nothing is 5 minutes down the street, the store is 4 minutes south of me, and there are 2 gas stations across the street from the CVS and Walgreens.

If it got better outside, I'd use my bike.

i'm jus' sayin'...
