A goodbye email to end all goodbye emails

With just two more weeks left at AMPA, I must honestly say that I look fondly back on my three years here. And how could I not, with the exceptional staff and working environment, amazing opportunities to hear from industry-wide experts and the hardworking, independent magazine publishers I communicated with? I say these things honestly, and find it disconcerting to know that there are countless numbers of people out there--like former television writer/producer/director Sam Toperoff who wrote this epic goodbye letter--who hate aspects of their employment, of which we all spend the majority of our waking hours...

Kudos to Mr. Topperoff for the courage to air his grievances, providing me with an entertaining read and perhaps some others with inspiration for their own future goodbye letters.
