Wednesday was the first in what will be many goodbyes to friends and family. I went to the AT&T Call Center I worked at for so long for a farewell tour.
It lasted quite a bit longer than I had anticipated. So many people were interested in where I was going and what I was doing. I got to see some old faces and met some new ones. I even got to hijack a new hire training class for a few minutes and talk to the all about my experiences at AT&T and my upcoming adventures. Thanks for that.
The director also wanted to send us off with a nice lunch and took the wife and I to Zio’s. I haven’t eaten there in a long time and it was a nice change of pace. Not to mention the blessing of a free lunch.
I didn’t realize how much I missed it up there. I came in at 9:30 and left at 4:30 when it was all said and done. I told my story many times and everyone was so positive about it. It was a stark contrast to my last day at the store. No management was there, I just gave my keys to someone and told ‘Bye’. I got a lot of hugs and a few tears at the center. I suppose that’s the difference between seven years and ten months.
Today is Indi’s last day at the center. I hope hers goes as well as mine did.
