The tedious “goodbye lunch” scenario at work…

Part of my main job ending this week is having to endure the dreaded goodbye lunch, which I’m so not looking forward to.

Anticipated tedious goodbye lunch conversations:

  • “So what comes next for you"?”

Fake answer:  “Omg, so much I don’t even know where to start! Teaching, learning, so much going on! Oh, I meant to ask you about your [insert clever subject change] – how is that going, anyway?”

Real answer: “Pretty much fear and uncertainty. Self doubt. Questioning everything. Some prayer, probably. Twenty job applications all hanging in limbo. Unemployment office visit outlook: likely!”

  • -- actually that’s going to be the only lunch conversation, repeated every time someone new comes in the room, followed by a lot of awkward silences and passing of potato chips.


    --> SO not looking forward to this.
