It’s now been a full year-and-a-half since I left MegaCorp and early retired. I drive by the corporate campus on the freeway almost daily and always give a quick wave or salute to my former colleagues that are still in the main buildings we used to work together in.
Before I announced I was leaving MegaCorp, I wanted to make sure that I was on good standing with everyone I worked with and was leaving with no regrets. I knew that I would be driving by the headquarters often and didn’t want to have any bad feelings about my time there or how I finished up.
I’m happy to say after 18 months away, I still keep up with a good number of people I worked with and don’t have any second thoughts or misgivings when I see the big red MegaCorp logo on top of the main building.
While many colleagues have now changed jobs within the company, retired themselves, or caught on with another company, I still feel like I have friends there and will continue to silently wish them well as I drive by. I figure they are probably all in a nauseating budget review and or endless project review meeting and could use the well-wishes!
Happy Friday MegaCorp – enjoy the weekend, everyone!
