Didn't ask for a WFR, didn't ask for anything. Just grabbed a different job, and bailed from the sinking ship after 24 years. It feels good not having a sword hanging over my head. HP works hard to make you feel that you are being compensated well, and are lucky to have a job, even though you are paid below industry standard, and the mood in the place is dark.
It's good out here. My life got better after I just walked away.
