Today, I saw on Facebook that a friend left her job where I also used to work, as she posted a picture of her farewell gifts, including cards, balloons and cookies. Normally, I'd be happy for her, except when I left I was told they'd "stopped doing farewell presents", and as such, I'd got nothing. FML

I don't think a work place should be obligated to give gifts to a departing employee, especially if they are leaving on bad terms or just aren't that impressed with their work.

They probably liked her.

If she's your friend you should be happy for her anyways and just forget about the gifts cuz I'm gonna guess you probably didn't just quit your job to get a departing gift

They were probably relieved because you made them look bad.

You can be a great employee and still not have close personal relationships with your coworkers, maybe they just knew her better. Also it sounds like she worked there longer than you.
