A Boss looking through his Mail Box was astonished to see a mail from an Employee who was supposed to be busy working at Client side on a critical project. It had the subject – “TaTa – Bye Bye”. With the worst premonition he opened the mail and read the content with trembling hands:-

Dear Sir,

It is with great regret and sorrow that I’m writing you, but I’m leaving the job. The offer was too lucritive and attractive for me to turn down. I had to abscond because I wanted to avoid a scene with the HR and you. I am sorry but I had no choice. The project is working fine. There are only 108 issues pending, out of which only 38% issues are High Priority. Hence I am sure there is no need to worry about. The next Phase of major enhancements I have been working upon, have been completed halfway. I am sure the new person who would replace me would not understand what all I had done so far. Hence, for his and your convenience, I have taken care to remove all the work that I had been doing this far for nearly 3 months now. I am sure you will appreciate my insight and “big heart”.

I am ofcourse retaining the Originals that I had retrieved for the purpose

of Passport verification with me, considering it as a parting gift from

you. Ofcourse, I will not pay the bond amount that I owe the compnay (since I

Am breaking the bond). But I will consider this as a parting gift from our

Dear company. I moving out of town since the new company is situated in another City.

Also, I have changed my contact number. So you will not be able to get in

touch with me, to congratulate me. But I know your blessings are always

with me.
Last but not the least. I also have the 7000 Rs entrusted to me by our

company’s cultural events group, for the upcoming movie event. I am

sure you would have wanted me to keep it with myself as an added bonus

from our company. I respect you very much, hence your wish is my command.

I thank you for that in advance, and assure you that I will surely invest

them wisely (but not in your company’s stocks of course).

Don’t worry sir. I am 2 years experienced now, learning so much from

your company. So I will surely use this knowledge to write better programs

for the new company.

Someday I’m sure we will meet sometime in the future. If you wish, I will

surely be glad to give my employee reference for you to apply for a job

in the new company which I am joining.

Your faithful employee,

S. W. Engineer

At the bottom of the page were the letters “PS”. Hands still trembling,

the Boss read:


PS: Dearest Boss, none of the above is true. I’m am still busy working at

client side. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in

life than my “Request to reconsider my Salary Appraisal” attached with this

mail. Please approve it and call when it is safe for me to come to our Office to discuss this. My respect and Best Regards to you!
