It's funny how wires can get crossed between an employer and employee. It's funny, too, how one day can really screw you up, mentally.
As most of you know, on June 10th, I received notice that my position was being eliminated and my last day would be July 10th. That's the date in the letter I received, too.
The funny thing is, apparently the Fed-Ex man made a special delivery today, and it was my severance package with the following line: "Our records indicate your last date of employment with the company as July 9, 2008." You wouldn't think that one day would be a big deal, and it isn't, really. Just mentally. That, paired with the fact that my 'fearless leader' is on vacation until 7/15, makes me feel all warm and cozy. Not so much.
So, here's to my new-found freedom, here's to my severance package coming one day early, and here's to me finding a job real soon! Cheers!
