Everyone showed me a lot of affection and respect on my last day at the organizing job, Friday. The office's Canvass Director made yet one more play to keep me, but I underlined my urgent need to save money (to, for example, visit my family, who haven't seen me in a year-and-a-half, and quite probably to replace this computer), and he understood.
At the Canvass Director's request, I also put in some extra training with the newbee canvassers, Friday, and was (to my embarrassment) generally held up as a paragon of everything an organizer should be. That might have been laying it on a bit thick, but I appreciated the sentiment.
I told everyone that I wanted to stay in touch and continue hearing about how the campaign goes: we talked about getting together Friday nights at the Café Metropolitain--and it certainly would be nice to see everyone, there.
