The last day on my job

Some of you know that I worked in a small, mesh printing company for about 10 years now. On Friday 30th of September, it was the last day I spent there. So, I planned to buy some drinks and have a lunch break with my colleagues. In Serbia, it is usual to make a small party and that was my plan. But my colleagues were a bit ahead of me and they organized barbecue without me knowing that and even made a small but funny present for me.

For those of you who are reading this on their cell phones, here is the main detail πŸ˜€

They were teasing me that I will have to wear that t-shirt in Canada from a very first day. Then, they said, I won`t have a problem finding a new job :jester:
Of course, they all signed on the back.


I was really touched.
A day was nice, sunny and warm, the beer was cold :cheers: and we spent a nice time talking and laughing. One colleague even made a layered cake for us :chef:

This is a team I spent most of those 10 years with.

:cheers:

    That picture feeds West European's prejudice to East Europeans. The man is chopping wood, but there is no wood. We all know this it how it was twenty years ago. Am I right?

    That t-shirt's gonna get you a few looks in Canada. πŸ˜†

    :up: what a 😎 πŸ’‘ of your colleagues, 10 years is a long time .. I bet you had a good time at the party :cheers: and I hope there was some time for being touched and sentimental as well :yes:

  4. sanshan says:

    It's funny to see faces for those people that I have heard so much about. I wonder which one is that particular colleague. hmmm.

    Cool t shirt πŸ™‚ a nice leaving party – lovely :up:

    I didn't know you were so handy with an axe :up: Jim still has to get another 3 truck loads of wood for Allison. It all needs to be split :DWhat a nice send off party. I'm sure you will be missed very much :awww:

  7. gdare says:

    Mik, it would give me few looks here too :lol:Martin, actually, you can`t see but there is another chump under this one on the photo πŸ˜‰ But you reminded me on one old joke about our ex-president, but I don`t want to put politics into this post :DDirk, there were few sighs but then we turned all that into fun. Beer helped :whistle: :cheers:San, it was a small team, and now without me it is even smaller. I wonder how will they transfer some of my job to other colleague(s).Kimmie, thanks :happy:Sal, tell Jim to get another axe and keep it sharp. A pro is coming 😎 :lol:Some of them will miss me, I am sure :happy:

  8. Aqualion says:

    I see. I mistook the lump for the chopping block…By the way, chopping wood is hard physical exercise. I've done a fair bit of wood chopping myself. You can feel it in your body when you've finished, that's for sure.

  9. Stardancer says:

    What a nice thing for them to do for you, Darko. Isn't it nice to know that you'll be missed?:smile:

  10. Dacotah says:

    Darko, great party and present they gave you.I'm sure you will miss them to but your new life will make up for it. πŸ™‚

  11. gdare says:

    Martin, when I was teenager, a big pile of firewood would wait for me in a village where my grandmother lived, in Croatia. But I liked to do that. Gives you special kind of exercise :DStar, it is :happy:Carol, exactly πŸ˜€

  13. gdare says:

    Angeliki, actually, my boss was.. sort of insulted because I left. For last few days he didn`t even want to talk to me, pretending I am not there at all :left: Some of the customers would miss me for sure :up:Originally posted by ellinidata:

    On the bright side, imagine what you will do on Saturdays with San!

    Chopping firewood? :yes:

Not many employees go to work on Saturdays!On the bright side, imagine what you will do on Saturdays with San!:up: :yes: :cheers:

    Sorry, I must correct you on this. It's…pink panther underwear. :p

  30. Aqualion says:

    And to add just a little corporate business awareness.Not to be worn whilst chopping wood, though.

  32. rose-marie says:

    πŸ˜† At first I thought that was a picture of you bashing your work computer or printer!Looks like a nice farewell celebration :).

  33. There2ia says:

    So, Finally you have resigned and it must be a very nice farewell party. I still remember how I and my friends tried to spent the last time together before I left Indonesia… πŸ™‚

  34. AnitaMargita says:

    :)What was the cake like? Looks delicious. Yummy! πŸ˜€

  35. raniakasim says:

    i think that u had the desire to hug every one of them , very impressive moment .

  36. gdare says:

    Martin, I can`t even imagine myself wearing those and chopping wood :ko: Not that I would wear them, anyway :left:Angeliki :rolleyes:Teresia, now I will try to remember only good things that happend to me there :)Ana, the cake was delcious, it had chocolate filling and almonds, for that I am sure, but I don`t know details :chef:Rania, most of them were excellent colleagues :yes:

    Dare, you are far too diplomatic.

    Will always be good then! πŸ˜†

  39. bentrein says:

    Sorry I join the party too late… It is good to see you were loved at your job. And I'm certain the same will happen in Canada.

  40. SittingFox says:

    How nice of them! That shirt is a unique gift and the cake doesn't look bad either :chef:I bought cakes for my colleagues on my last day (which feels like years ago now!)

  41. derWandersmann says:

    By "mesh printing" do you mean what we call "screen printing"?

    great because the subject of having good colleagues reflects on the performance of one's work

  43. edwardpiercy says:

    A fine bunch of folk, and an indication of their esteem — not surprising. If you don't mind, I picked out a couple of traveling companions for you. They were headed your way so I though you might like the company. PS. Be sure to feed them or they get kinda irritable. :right:Have a great trip. (And don't forget the flowers.)

  44. Aqualion says:

    A Greenland Husky is always good company.

  45. gdare says:

    Hello everyone! I was on a short visit to friends and family in Croatia, returned about an hour ago.San ;)Ben, I am certain too. She is sending me loving mails everyday :happy:Adele, having something for drink is usual for Serbia but this was a nice surprise :happy: Thanks :cheers:der Wandersmann, exactly, this is the other way to describe it :up:Rania, you are right, most of my coleagues liked and supported me. I am glad to know some of them :up:Ed, I am thinking to bring them with me in case anyone tries to take my seat in airplane. And for sure I will take care to keep them a bit hungry. Just enough :devil:Martin, well, I think I will fly over Greenland so maybe they can wave to their friends down there πŸ˜€

    :lol:Excellent idea. I'm sure they will pass as Carry On.

  47. Aqualion says:

    Huskies on a plane? Hopefully, they have good air refreshment device on that plane.
