Copier Retirement Letter

Hi Everyone,


I just wanted to express my thanks and appreciation for the 20 years of partnership and appreciation during my career here at Madison! I know I took a lot of sick days, especially during these last few years.


  • Thanks for understanding my need for 75-80 sick days per year. I really appreciate it!
  • Thanks for your understanding in my limited ability during the days that I did work, too!
  • Thanks for swallowing the urges to take me outside and give me the beat down I so greatly deserved.
Please don't judge me based on your feelings for my replacements. I hear the district is bringing in 3 little versions of me that can print, fax, and copy quickly. I hear my replacements can take your print jobs electronically so the job is waiting for you when you arrive with your little code number. Is that really needed?! I never received the professional development needed or I would do those things too! Really, if that's what you wanted; you could have just told me!



I hear I'm headed to a beautiful place! I'm not sure why my next career will begin in a landfill, but I trust the district has my best interests in mind.


Take care!


LLC Canon Copier
