My old company bought me lunch today. It was partially, I think, to make up for taking me by surprise and booting me out (and the other two guys that got laid-off) so ignominiously last week. They wanted to me to understand that it wasn’t personal.
Things that made me smile:
– the multiple offers for help and job contacts
– that they might need me to do some consulting work
– that it now takes two of the remaining employees to do the job that I did
and, most of all:
– that I didn’t pay for lunch
