I am changing employer soon. Really doing the same kind of work, but in a new role with greater responsibility and some interesting challenges.
Someone attributed the fact that I look “way too happy” to the fact that I am now, officially a “short-timer.” I guess I am visibly excited by the new things I will be getting to learn and do. But I don’t care for the slacking-off image that the term connotes. And I have no reason to slack off. I will still be working close enough to my existing team to be affected by the issues I would create if I did!
However, I am definitely taking my Red Swingline Stapler with me.
It doesn’t bind up as much.
