My last day at my old job was spent shredding. I was shredding like an ENRON employee during an audit (except I wasn't shredding anything important - at least I HOPE not). Most of my excess paperwork contains national insurance numbers and birth dates so it has to be shredded and boy does it feel good to take large chunks of your accumulated paperwork and watch it being eaten up and turned into confetti. I think that was the best day at work I've ever had.
Much of the rest I boxed up and sent to other people. Releasing that responsibility was almost as good as the shredding.
Afterwards, despite the bad weather and it being a Tuesday, people showed up for my leaving drinkies and
new job starts Monday and I'm really not nervous (at least not yet). I'm in the mood for a change. I'm looking forward to the freshness. I can't wait to get cracking.
