"It's business and people leave jobs all the time. I'm not disloyal at all. I have always been extremely loyal. I put -I don't know how many years of my life- down for that company. Even the highest of higher ups –which is when I went to make the phone call when I decided to take this amazing offer that I got. They said [executives] you’ve served this company so well [and for] so many years, I can do nothing but wish you well.
