The Classiest "I Lost My Job" Email
Below are excerpts from his email. Talk about class!
I was informed this week that my position...will be eliminated.
First, to all of the customers I worked with over the years it was a pleasure to serve you. I tried to autograph all of my work with excellence....For current customers, please let me know if there is anything I can do before my departure.
To all my current and former co-workers, it was a real pleasure working side-by-side with each and every one of you. Keep up the good work. Many of you have taught me important life lessons (you know who you are).
To my many industry colleagues...friends and everyone else who crossed my path over the past 11 years (25+ overall years) at meetings, events, in corridors, at the airport, and wherever my travels took me, I want to thank you for making an impression on me. I hope I also made an impression on you.
Someone once told me that "people's lives take different turns." Looking back at my career, I've seen my fair share of them. I hope to see you around the next corner wherever that might take me. As I open this next chapter in my life, I wish all of you the best.
Finally, I am a firm believer that an honest life is the only life which will bring no regrets."
