The Last Day

( Copyrighted )
My mom always tells me that I am such a people-pleaser. She is so right.

I hate saying no, and I hate having to say no. I hate to offend people. or make them upset. Hence I am not a litigator. I'd probably see the point the other party tries to make, feel sorry for him, and agree.

Anyway. What brings me to this post is that I have been asked to extend my last day. On the basis that I have not had my farewell lunch yet! And there are a lot of matters to be settled. Yes there are, but I am fully confident that I can hand them over to good hands on Tuesday, which is the last day. We have not really talked about handing over stuff. I think it's been easier to just pretend that I'm not going anywhere. I even bought a rug ok for the room. At my current place.

So now, I think it's sunk in at last that by wednesday I'm not around and panic is ensuing. Hence the request. I didn't say anything. I so wanted to refuse but I so did not want to offend anyone , with any perceived haste to leave you know? And I do appreciate the panic. But on Wednesday I have to go in to new Office ! And on friday I have a spa date!

So, this is what I will say on Monday. Boss, sorry, I have asked, and sorry I can't extend my stay. (my middle name is really "Sorry") Plus on Friday I am going somewhere. However, IF YOU REALLY NEED ME I will finish your work/review/read my email/water your plants etc from there ok. I have access to my emails for a month it seems. Hoo-ray.

What do you think . Tak sampai hati pulaaakk. but I think this is merely panic on their side talking.
