It’s probably the strangest meeting I’ve ever been a part of, and certainly one I’ll never forget.
Eleven of us from various groups sat nervously around a conference table at work while we waited for the meeting to start. Finally the executive walked in being tailed closely by an assistant.
He looked only down at a stack of colored folders he was carrying and took his place standing at the front of the room.
And as he spoke his voice was trembling with nervous energy.
“There’s no easy way to say this. Today is your last day of employment here…”
It was like being punched in the gut. The meeting went on for another 15 minutes, but I’m not really sure what was talked about after that.
My mind was on a loop over and over from “this seriously just happened?” to “what am I going to do now?” to “what is Cameron going to say?”
