When you announce your departure, write a very logical and very true letter. Don't be afraid to say something like "I think my boss lacks the skill to delegate authority" or "the office kitchen is infested with mold". So long as you are truthful and logical, it can never be held against you, and it may even serve to prove your character as unwaveringly logical.

In no circumstances should you ever do that. It can only be used against you.

If you give me six lines written by the most honest man, I will find
something in them to hang him.

You former employer doesn't care about how logical you are. At best, you saved them EI payments, and at worst you just left them with a mess that will need to clean up. At best, you might want to grab a beer with a *trusted* co-worker to discuss problems. Doing an exit interview is only slightly less stupid than writing a letter.


English City Council "Not Ready" for Zombie Attack 121

Posted by samzenpus
from the double-tap-initiative dept.
Unlike the CDC, a freedom of information request submitted to the Leicester City Council has revealed that the council is not prepared for an unexpected zombie invasion. From the article: "'We've had a few wacky ones before but this one did make us laugh,' said Lynn Wyeth, head of information governance. The Freedom of Information Act allows a right of access to recorded information held by public authorities. Ms Wyeth said she was unaware of any specific reference to a zombie attack in the council's emergency plan, however some elements of it could be applied if the situation arose."

Have you ever noticed that the people who are always trying to tell you `there's a time for work and a time for play' never find the time for play?
