Dear Folks I Currently Work For,
Listen, I just want you to know that I know that you’re not planning on offering me a position. I want you to know I know because then maybe you can stop pussyfooting around when you’re near me in the office.
Feel free to speak freely about my replacement. I would prefer that to the whispering that happens now.
Today, when someone asked if his support team was “set in stone” and you practically screamed “NO! Oh no! No, no… not set in stone” did you think I wasn’t going to notice that?
If it’ll make you feel better, I’ll just nod my head to any plausible lie you want to tell me to make me feel better about the situation. But, DO NOT, at the end of the 6 months of my contract, try to feed me some bullshit about how I just didn’t work hard enough.
I’ve known from Week 3, when you told me that I was on borrowed time, that this was not going to be something permanent. I thank you for the afterthought courtesy interview.
But please, people, can we cut the crap? It’ll make the whole experience better for everyone.
