Two Week Notice

Here is a copy of the notice I gave to my previous employment before I came to Missouri. Upon leaving a job I have always (with one exception) tried to be creative with my parting words. (Ummm...names have been changed to protect the innocent.)

September 20, 2004

Her kind and gentle grace, the Lady Rebecca; to their estimable and honorable graces; the Lady Hannah and the Lady Leonora:

It is with both great joy and deep sorrow that I take pen in hand and scribe to you these few and final lines; joy for that I stand upon the threshold of a new Adventure awaiting, sorrow that I must now take my leave of this Esteemed Establishment; the County Sheriff’s Office.

I laud the day, the Sixteenth of March, in the year of our Lord Nineteen Hundred and Ninety Eight, when I did stumble upon this most Gainful and Enjoyable Employment, and I am honored to have been able to bask in your Gracious Presences and to have partaken of your Kind Friendship, which has come to mean so much to me these past years. Would that time and chance had sorted themselves differently and I had been able to be longer with you.

Yet, alas, now upon the horizon I behold the mast of the ship that comes to bear me from these Fruitful Shores unto a New and Glorious Adventure in a land far, far away. Verily upon the prow I behold my betrothed beckoning to me.

Therefore I beg leave to depart from your Gracious Presences on the 15th of October of this year that I might prepare for my voyage into my awaiting future.
Always know that a piece of my Soul shall remain here, believe me…

Your Humble Servant; Rebecca
