    Someone at work is leaving, and everyone's been asked to e-mail in a message that'll be printed out and stuck in a leaving book...thing.

    Only today I am suffering from excruciating writer's block that's preventing me from thinking up anything beyond a basic "Goodbye!" message (although I have managed to eke out a haiku from somewhere).

    Someone punch me with the inspiration fist.

    A simple 'AWTFAY' should be enough.

    What upsets me most about you leaving is that I never had the chance to tell you just how much I love you. I'll miss you terribly, and I hope one day you'll find the happiness I could have given you.

    Forever yours,
    Gremmi.

    Best wishes.

    That's that I write on leaving cards that are put in front of me.

    it depends on how much you hate them and how much you want them to know that.

    something along the lines of:

    "over the years working together at company x, i have come to think of you as... someone i once met."

    In all seriousness, the typical 'best of luck in your new job/whatever' works.

    "This is an automated email response:

    Gremmi is currently out of the office"...etc

    I've been known to put messages like "Congrats to the first Rat leaving this ship, good luck!"
    The leaver thought it was ace, my bosses weren't so keen the humourless sods. :)

    Usually it's "Best wishes and good fortune for the future." or something inoffensive yet positive like that.

    Walk straight out the door. Do not look back....


    Take a right at the end of the corridor and go down the stairs two stories. Then take a left and enter the 4th door on the right. It should have a blue door. You will be given further information once you get there.

    Good call, The others i've written is "Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out." but that was for a close friend who was leaving. Some may not find it so funny. :)

    In a similar situation I wrote "Stay Lucky" which the girl seemed to think was hilarious, for some reason.

    If it's a lass:

    'I'll be glad to see the back of her to be honest, although she's got nice tits!'

    If it's a bloke:

    'Fuck the arrogant prick. I'm gonna dip my tail in his tea on his last day!'

    At our place the writers always write the most mundane messages in birthday/leaving cards. Donít waste your creativity on it.

    How about:

    I didn't know you very well, but here is a piece of advice that should stand you in good stead with young office temps in the future...

    Smells Like Fish
    Tastes Like Chicken
    That's the thing to put your dick in.

    All the best,

    Sorry to see you go, although obviously we'll still bump into each other down at narcotics anonymous.

    I am going to show you how great you are by drinking the bar dry at your leaving drinks. (Hope your new place pays well as the bar bill is going to be huge).
