A Boss looking through his Mail
Box was astonished to see a mail from an
Employee who was supposed to be busy working at Client side on a
critical project. It had the subject - "TaTa - Bye Bye". With
the worst premonition he opened the mail and read the content with
It is with great regret and sorrow
that I'm writing you, but I'm leaving the job. The offer was too lucritive
and attractive for me to turn down.
I had to abscond because I wanted
to avoid a scene with the HR and you.
I am sorry but I had no choice.
The project is working fine. There
are only 108 issues pending, out of which only 38% issues are High Priority.
Hence I am sure there is no need to worry about. The next Phase of
major enhancements I have been working upon, have been completed
halfway. I am sure the new person who would replace me would not
understand what all I had done so far. Hence, for his and your convenience,
I have taken care to remove all the work that I had been doing this
far for nearly 3 months now. I am sure you will appreciate my insight
and "big heart".
I am ofcourse retaining the Originals
that I had retrieved for the purpose of Passport verification with me,
considering it as a parting gift from you. Ofcourse, I will not pay the
bond amount that I owe the compnay (since I Am breaking the bond).
But I will consider this as a parting gift from our Dear company.
I moving out of town since the new company is situated in another City.
Also, I have changed my contact
number. So you will not be able to get in touch with me, to congratulate
me. But I know your blessings are always with me.
Last but not the least. I also have
the 7000 Rs entrusted to me by our company's cultural events group, for
the upcoming movie event. I am sure you would have wanted me to keep
it with myself as an added bonus from our company. I respect you
very much, hence your wish is my command.
I thank you for that in advance,
and assure you that I will surely invest them wisely (but not in your company's
stocks of course).
Don't worry sir. I am 2 years experienced
now, learning so much from your company. So I will surely use this
knowledge to write better programs for the new company.
Someday I'm sure we will meet sometime
in the future. If you wish, I will surely be glad to give my employee reference
for you to apply for a job in the new company which I am joining.
Your faithful employee,
S. W. Engineer
At the bottom of the page were the
letters "PS". Hands still trembling,
the Boss read:
PS: Dearest Boss, none of the above
is true. I'm am still busy working at client side. I just wanted to remind
you that there are worse things in life than my "Request to reconsider
my Salary Appraisal" attached with this mail. Please approve it and
call when it is safe for me to come to our Office to discuss this. My respect
and Best Regards to you!
