Yesterday was my last day in the office and to be honest, I’m not ecstatic. Maybe I will be once it sinks in, but for the moment I feel a bit strange. Almost like I’m just on holidays and I’ll be going back in a few weeks. I’m still officially an employee until 10th May because I’m taking four weeks leave which is AWESOME. This means I’ll get Good Friday, Easter Monday, Anzac Day & Labour Day as paid holidays! Not to mention the fact that over the next four weeks (while I’m not working there) I’m still technically ‘earning’ leave credits so I’ll get a bit extra out of them in my final pay check when all my benefits are paid out.
But wait! There’s more…
I was sad when I realised I’d have to give back my new mobile handset so I asked my boss if I could keep it (just the handset, not the SIM). I seriously didn’t expect him to say yes because it’s worth over $800 retail but you don’t know if you don’t ask. Besides, what’s he going to do? He can’t fire me. So I asked and he said yes!
Maybe when my replacement starts it’ll dawn on him that they have to fork out for a new handset… but even then I can’t see that bothering him too much. If there’s one man who knows how to go over budget, it’s him.
After I finally left work last night at 6:45pm Burfit and I went out to a nice romantic dinner at Bespoke in Albion which was devine. I would recommend it if you’ve got something momentous to celebrate and don’t mind spending around $40 for some slow-cooked duck or snapper pie.
I’m starting to feel a little better!
