Goodbye Henri Bendel. A New York City Classic Closes Its Doors

Craig Barritt/Getty

On a recent Sunday afternoon at Henri Bendel, while looking through crossbody bags, Charly Zubi, a lawyer who lives in Fort Lauderdale but grew up just outside New York City in Westchester, told The Daily Beast, “I’ve been a Bendel girl probably since I was in the womb.” 

It would be Zubi’s last visit to the storied Fifth Avenue department store, which will close in January after 123 years in business. During Bendel’s final holiday season, die-hards and newbies were shopping side-by-side. 

Zubi’s mother had loved the shop, and passed those feelings down to her daughter. As a law student at Fordham, Zubi said she would bring friends to Bendel’s, “Whenever we got really sad or depressed. We’d just come up here and go wild.”

Goodbye to Allo: Google confirms it will shutter its short-lived messaging app

Google Allo shutting down

In a turn of events pretty much everyone outside of Google saw coming, the search giant is apparently poised to wind down its Google Allo messaging app, with an announcement coming “soon.” That’s according to a new report from 9to5Google, which quotes a “reliable source familiar with the plan” though there are few details other than that at this point.

And about that word: “plan” — it seemed that was always something lacking relative to Google’s fractured and disparate messaging-related properties, such that it’s never had one single strong product that could credibly rival something like iMessage. Indeed, Google vice president Anil Sabharwal acknowledged as much about eight months ago in an interview, saying that the company would be putting a pause on additional investment into Allo. He admitted then that “The product as a whole has not achieved the level of traction that we’d hoped for,” though Google would keep supporting the app.

Watch Andrew Lincoln’s ‘TWD’ Costars (Past and Present!) Say Goodbye

Moving on is hard to do – but the cast of The Walking Dead couldn’t be more grateful for the time they had with Andrew Lincoln. The actor, who has played Rick Grimes since the show’s debut in 2010, will make his final appearance on the drama on Sunday, November 4. Ahead of the episode, the cast – both present and past – filmed a goodbye video for the 45-year-old star.

Scott Wilson, who filmed his return cameo on The Walking Dead before his death at the age of 76 on October 6, opened the video, getting emotional the moment he said Lincoln’s name. “I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Lincoln once more so that was really a great day for me,” he said in the video. Wilson appeared in 32 episodes of the show as Hershel, Maggie’s dad, and was killed in season 4.

He wasn’t the only past star who appeared in the video. Sonequa Martin-Green, who portrayed Sasha for five years on the show, also chimed in. “To see someone who has that level of excellence and maintains that level of excellence, brings it out in you,” she said. Michael Cudlitz (Abraham), Chad Coleman (Tyreese) and Lennie James (Morgan) also took part in the video.

One of the most touching moments in the video were the remarks made by Danai Gurira, who plays the badass Michonne, who happens to be Rick’s girlfriend. “He’s the sort of leader who is like, ‘I want the story to open up for others,’” she said. “I really do think he’s the best leading man on television, and I haven’t worked with everybody but I just believe that.”

The video ends with a comment from Steven Yeun, who portrayed Glenn Rhee in the series and was killed during the season 7 premiere. “I keep racking my brain to figure out something to say and every single thing kind of fails that,” he said. “So, all I really wanna say is, ‘Andy, I love you.’”

‘The Walking Dead’ Begins to Say Goodbye to Rick

After the gob smacking announcement that Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) is down to his final two episodes on The Walking Dead, fans everywhere were left wondering: how does he go out? Eaten by zombies? Murdered by dissidents? Traded away to the mysterious folks in that eternally-hovering helicopter?

This week, on an episode titled “The Obliged,” we got approximately zero answers about all that — unless you count a cliffhanger that eliminates one possibility from the mix for sure. (True story: if you leave your hero facing imminent death in the final moments of one episode, the next episode has to feature him making a wildly improbable escape. Sorry, we don’t make the rules.) Here’s everything that happened as The Walking Dead prepares to say goodbye to its longtime hero.

Michonne’s on Deck
Community organizer by day, zombie slayer by night! Michonne (Danai Gurira) spent this episode reminding us that if Rick happened to not be around anymore, she’s got it under control. She even ran interference with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who was refusing to eat unless someone came down to sit and talk with him. The conversation turned tense when Negan started asking about Michonne’s son and spouted one of those Bond-villain-esque lines he’s gotten so fond of during his incarceration: “We’re the same, and you can’t stand that we’re the same.”

But Michonne saw through it, to Negan’s true (and pathetic) goal: All he wanted, the thing he was just desperate for, was to see his stupid murder bat again. Michonne gave him the bad news: the bat was long gone. And the last time we saw the Saviors’ fearless leader, he was banging his head violently against the wall out of heartbreak for old, lost Lucille.

The End of Junkyard Jadis

Things weren’t looking good for Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) when he first woke up after being knocked unconscious last episode by Jadis (Pollyanna Macintosh). Tied up and faced with his imminent death in the form of an armless, pearl necklace-wearing zombie wielded by his erstwhile girlfriend, Gabriel prepared to be bitten. But his last words — “I forgive you” — seemed to give Jadis second thoughts. So instead of killing him, she chloroformed him and vanished. Waking up with a goodbye note pinned to his jacket, Gabriel found himself abandoned amidst the garbage. Presumably, he’ll head back to Alexandria whenever he finishes ugly crying.

Mutiny

She’s been wanting to do it for ages, but now, the moment has arrived: Maggie (Lauren Cohan) left for Alexandria with the goal of killing Negan. Rick got word that she was coming and tried to leave the bridge camp to intercept her, but Daryl (Norman Reedus), in cahoots with Maggie, took him the wrong way home. A shoving match ensued, leading the men to fall down a hill and into a hole — where they had no choice but to work out their differences, particularly after the hole attracted a crowd of zombies. Back on the road, Rick sent Daryl to intercept Maggie while he took a conveniently-placed horse (an escapee from a riot at the bridge camp) and tried to draw the ravenous herd away. But when a second herd showed up, merging with the first, Rick’s horse freaked out and threw him… right onto a busted concrete slab with a bunch of rebar sticking out of it.

As Andrew Lincoln’s penultimate episode drew to a close, this is where we left our hero: barely conscious, surrounded by walkers, and fully (if not mortally) impaled on a metal pike from which he definitely can’t escape without help. But this ignominious, lonely end can’t possibly be how Rick Grimes dies … can it?

What to Say in a Goodbye Email

what to say in a goodbye emailWhat should you say in a goodbye email? We’ve talked before about what to do with your work email after you quit, as well as how to resign gracefully and have a great exit interview, but not necessarily about what to say in a goodbye email, so today we’re welcoming guest poster Amy M. Gardner to share some thoughts on what to say — and what NOT to say — in your goodbye email at work. Amy is a former law firm partner and law school dean of students, now a certified professional coach working with attorneys at Apochromatik — welcome, Amy!

What to Say In A Goodbye Email

1. Include where you’re off to next and your contact information. Some people don’t want to share where they’re going or can’t for a set amount of time because of a non-compete. In that case, send connection requests to people via LinkedIn and include only your personal contact information.

2. Express gratitude. Whether you loved the position and employer and are truly grateful or are only grateful it kept you fed and sheltered while you got ready for your next move, an expression of gratitude isn’t deceptive and should be part of your message.

3. Start early so you can proofread, proofread, proofread. Have your friend read it, read it to your dog out loud, etc. (One of my executive coaching clients had me review her last day email “just in case” and my fresh eyes caught that she had the wrong acronym for her new employer.) You want your last message to be professional, competent, and classy — just like you — and it won’t be if you start it at 4:45 p.m. on your last day and don’t have time to reread it.

4. When you’re talking about your new endeavor, it’s a great time to let people know you’d welcome referrals/introductions. You can do that subtly, but simply saying “I’ll be a litigation partner at XYZ, focusing on cases regarding ABC and would welcome referrals or introductions” expresses some humility and plants the seed so that the next time someone is looking for that type of lawyer or the firm needs to send a case out due to conflicts, hopefully they’ll think of you. That’s the case even if you’re in sales of a competitor, or some other area. Asking for help, leads, introductions, etc., almost never hurts and could help you hit the ground running at the new position.

What NOT To Say In a Goodbye Email

1. Be wise about what you put in writing. In fact, assume your email will be forwarded to your new boss, posted on Above the Law if you’re a lawyer, or posted on other industry websites if you’re not a lawyer. (Some epic goodbye emails that wound up at Above the Law are here, here, and here.) Resist the inclination for inside jokes or your special brand of sarcastic humor — or to let people know how you really feel. (I have a friend in government whose resignation letter was FOIA’d by the newspaper and it still shows up in her Google search results. She had things to get off her chest, and now 10 years later everyone still can read them. Be sure you’ll be willing to have employers read your farewell email in a decade.)

2. Resist the urge to be nasty. Even if you’re leaving on your own terms and for much better things, it can be so appealing to burn the bridge to the ground if you’re disgruntled, especially if you’re headed to another field. But you truly have no idea where people will be in 5 or 10 years or when you will need a reference. If you must, write the nasty farewell email from your personal email on your personal computer, send it only to yourself, and put it in your calendar to read it again in three months, six months, or a year. When you do, I bet the anger will be a distant memory and you’ll be glad you didn’t send — even to your one work buddy, and definitely not to the entire office.

3. Be careful about singling out too many people. If you want to do some individual thank yous, a thank you to your admin if you have one, or other unsung heroes who made your life easier is fine, but if you list a bunch of individuals, you’ll inevitably overlook someone. If you want to thank individual people, send them individual notes or messages. A woman I worked with left bamboo plants and personal notes on the desks of people she was especially thankful to on her last day. Before my last day at my day job before I went out on my own full-time, I spent 30 minutes every day for several days writing personal thank you notes to people with whom I worked and who made my life easier. I’m sure I still overlooked some people, but the two hours I spent on those notes allowed me to avoid listing half the office in my goodbye email while enabling me to reference personal inside jokes I didn’t want to include in my all-office farewell and to express my genuine gratitude more personally than in a mass email.

4. DON’T send it at 5:10 as you’re scrambling out the door on your last day. Send it earlier in the day so people can reply, you can save their kind responses, and you can be sure to send them LinkedIn requests and keep their email addresses.

Finally, keep your goodbye email short and sweet.

As you hit send, pat yourself on the back and relish that feeling of leaving as gracefully as possible as you head for the next chapter of your career!
