I felt really bad leaving a job of only 13 months for another position that offered more money. So instead of telling the truth at the last second while clentching my teeth in my managers office I told them I was offered a position overseas and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to practice my profession in a foreign country on a short term project. Several years later I ran into an old friend that I had worked with, and decided to meet for a drink afterwork. I picked her up but first went in to say hello to the old gang. One of the mail room clerks asked me how my foreign position worked out, and I just gave him a perplexed look because I had no idea what he was talking about. It wasn't until my previous manager clarified my job opportunity overseas that the lightbulb went on. Oops!
