Every seen a resignation come across email that includes the phrase, "It is with a heavy heart"?
Here's what that means:
1. I'm resigning before the posse got to town and took me under custody.
2. This is a forced resignation. My heart's heavy because I don't want to go. Damn, why do I have to go?
3. I'm signaling you, fool! Someone's pissed me off because I didn't agree with their ethical code and I'm resigning to show them how I feel. This is a stand about morals and ethics. Please remember me when I network with you via LinkedIn!
It's with a heavy heart that I write this blog post. Me? I like the people who leave a company like Keyser Soze:
"After that my guess is that you will never hear from him again. The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that...<poof>... he is gone."
If you're leaving, don't make a production. Just go. Like Keyser Soze. No drama.
