Found # 2 - My Going Away Card Signed by AOL Co-workers (circa 1997)

"Reb, we will certainly miss your pessimistic face. Just kidding!"

Um, no you weren't.

I just left my employment at AOL. I received no card, parting gifts, or anything of the sorts. The only thing I've ever received related to AOL is snarled remarks at parties when my 365 day run with them was mentioned.

My favorite was, while swirling wine among a group of sophisticates: "Oh my god, I cannot talk to you, I am in the middle of a lawsuit with them."

I stand corrected, AOL did give me a gift once, it sitting right here on my desk: a shot glass.

Maybe they were kidding about the part where they said they'd miss you. I mean, you can read the statement that way...

Because you said pessimistic things like: "this internet bubble can't possibly last"?
