Letter to Boss


Dear Boss,

This letter may come as a surprise to you. I’m writing this now as I may not be able to get a chance to talk to you again in private and express my sincerest gratitude and appreciation. Working with you and the rest of the team has been a great experience and, I must say, quite a delight. I’ve learned so much, and it has paved way for me to grow more, not just as a worker, but as an individual as well.

I’d be forever indebted by the kindness that you’ve shown me, and for always believing in me & my potentials. You may not realize this, but I’ve always looked up to you as a leader and as a mentor. I have so much respect for you, and always been impressed by the way you communicate & the way you handle and manage most things. What’s more endearing about you is that you’re such a family-oriented person, a trait which is very Filipino-like. You have a sweet wife and such cute kids, and I could see how important your family is to you.

One of the things that saddens me now is I know I still have a lot of things to learn from you, but I have to face this painful truth: that my stay with the company has to end. But as you’ve said, due to the difficult times now, you really have to make this decision, which I fully understand and respect. I know that your main responsibility is to look into the company’s welfare, and letting me go is just one of the sacrifices that you have to make.

I will definitely miss the whole team. Not only I have maintained good working relationships with each and every one of you, but I have also cultivated wonderful friendships as well that are definitely worth keeping.

I fervently believe that the company, which I’ve learned to love, will be able to endure and surpass this crisis. I know it’s quite tough, but as Gene Kranz of the Apollo 13 Mission once said, “Failure is not an option.”

Again, thank you.



Best regards,

The Gasoline Dude

  13. Parang napakasakit ng pagtanggal s'yo. pero ganyan talaga buhay, minsan dapat na lang tanggapin na kahit mabubuting tao ay kailangan magsakripisyo...
