My farewell mail while leaving Yahoo

When I left Yahoo in just seven months, I had sent out a farewell mail to all my Yahoo colleagues. Today, while going through my old mails…I saw this and I have to admit that I was impressed with the farewell mail I had sent out.

Thought why not share it with you. If you want to read the funniest farewell mail ever written, you will have to click here.

Here goes the farewell mail I wrote on June 14, 2007. I have to admit that I was a creative person before the heavy work at ibibo took its toll. πŸ™‚


Dear friend,

My innings here in Yahoo has come to and end and shortly I will be donning my gloves for another team.

It has been quite an ODI at Yahoo – loads of action and adrenalin. Not to mention the appeals, yorkers, reverse-swings, sliding stops and powerplays which have made the seven months all the more exciting. Yahoo! India has been a perfect batting pitch and I have to admit that my stint at the crease has been enjoyable.

Unlike the world of Faster, Stronger, Higher at Yahoo! Sports, my new venture would be less glamorous. I will be helping build internet based products for a start-up based out of Gurgaon.

Now…for another venue and another match. Wish me luck.

You are a creative guy no doubt, Jammy.

You are also a man with immense confidence in self. It take great confidence to recommend one’s readers openly to another humor blog.

I visited there and it is equally good. Thanks!

P.S.: I have paid some encomiums on you. Hope one day you will write that I (that is – me, that is – the guy writing this comment) have a blog and people can visit there to read some nonsense.

Went to check out didnt like it much. His humour is dark. kind of depresses me. There is already enough misery in the world. No need to make humour do the same job,I believe.:) You rock. U should be the first bestest humour site ever. The award giving people are idiots.
Hope this was compliment enough. More in my next comment. πŸ™‚

Hey Jammy

no posts recently why?
I think Rekha is back from vacation and is making
you clear all the mess u made at your home πŸ˜‰

Wow, Jammy mentions Greatbong.
Regarding the Competiton of humour- was it based on readership or humour quality? Like the comment section tells us humour is subjective. While some finds something funny, other find it offensive.
However, I like your blog over GB.
BTW, I would like to think I am the most cognitively humorous blogger, its just that people are yet to discover me πŸ˜‰
Nice farewell mail, though.
