The End of An Era

Dec 5, 2008

Dear Linda and Management Team,

I am writing to inform you of my decision to resign from my position as a server at Olive Garden (on Reenders). My last available working day will be December 20th, 2008.

For the past few years I have worked at Olive Garden as I completed my Masters in Counseling Psychology and I have appreciated the flexibility and graciousness you have shown towards me with my student schedule. My new counseling practice requires more time and focus, thus necessitating me leaving OG.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and Darden for having me as part of your team and for taking a chance on me when you hired me. I have enjoyed my time with you and the staff and I wish you all the best for the future.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Westman

Love to all of you!

Thanks people. Terry: you are welcome to come in on the night of the 19th (or the day of the 20th) and have soup and salad. Of course I will tempt you into a few appetizers, some desserts, and a bottle of Chardonay as well!

As tempting as it is to organize a group of people to come in on your last day and run you with soup and salad refills, I won't. :)
