A Message From a Leaving Colleague

It’s Monday morning and I reached the office at 7:59 in the morning. Perfect! I headed toward my table and found this paper bag. I read the message. It was from my co-worker who left for Australia last Friday when I was attending a training related to laws on animal welfare.

I’ve been in this office for more than 9 years and I’ve seen colleagues who left the office for some reasons. Some have gone abroad, others have transferred to another office and a few had retired from the service.

Though it’s expected, it is still sad to see other people go. Of course, with Jake, I am happy for him because he is leaving to take advantage of an opportunity offered to him in another land. I believe that every individual has the right to look for a better career.

    • Thank you, Pamela, for viewing and commenting. Being able to do what we want is something to look forward to. As of now, I am doing what I need to do most of the time. It’s only when I’m online that I can say I am doing what I want to do.

    • Forty-two years is such a long time. Here in our country being able to work in the government is the dream of many. So, probably if I was able to enter government service earlier, perhaps I would have been more than 15 years in service. But it took me some time before I was hired. It was a long and difficult process. I stayed in a private company for 7 years.

    • When I was younger, I want to change job more often. But it is a different thing as we grow older. I am working in the government and I need at least 15 years in service to be eligible for a pension after retirement.

      • With us we need 40 years of service to be entitled to a pension … I worked in one company for 25 years … then I changed the service to the postmortem 2 more services and nothing more
