Looks like at least one other GlassHouse employee was as surprised by my departure as I was. I had a good laugh when something arrived at my front door just now. (Click Read More to see more.)
It looks like the “send a gift to all GlassHouse employees” person was as surprised as I was that I don’t work there any more. Works for me! Sausages and cheese are nice munchies while I’m sitting here at my computer looking for a job. 😉
But it was when I looked at the shipping label that I got the big laugh. They told USPS to go ahead and leave the package in case I didn’t answer the door. Maybe they thought I’d be too depressed to answer, or maybe they thought I might not answer the door if I knew it was from them. That combined with the usual generic “best wishes for a happy holiday season” at the bottom gave me the laugh I needed for today.
I spent the whole day fielding “what the heck?” and “will you come work for US?” phone calls. Between those and trying to fix the gaping whole in my life caused by the sudden loss of Exchange and BlackBerry Enterprise Server, I was a pretty busy camper. (Gmail, IMAP, and Gmail calendar are now my best friends…) Several hours later, I’ve got all my various personal email accounts under one roof, all of which are now accesible via Outlook. Funny how important communications is when you’re looking for work.
Did I mention I was looking for work? firstname.lastname@example.org
