Next Wednesday is today

"I'm going."

"Going where?"

"Back."

"Back to what?"

"I'm going back to Quebec."

"Oh, for the weekend?"

"No, for good."

"Uh, for good?"

"Yes."

"Um, when did this happen?"

"Last weekend."

"So, you're leaving and never coming back?"

"Yeah."

"I've heard excuses for never wanting to see me again, but this is a first..."

"I quit my job here and am moving back next week."

"Next week?!"

"Yes."

"Like when next week? Friday? The weekend?"

"Wednesday."

"What?!"

"Yeah. Wednesday."

"So, you're leaving? Just like that?"

"I miss my friends and I miss my family..."

"But, you've only been here for a month. I mean, don't you need a little more time to settle in before you make this decision? It's not like I want you to stay for me - that would be crazy. But, how do you know, you know, that you should leave?"

"I don't like Toronto. I dunno. I just don't like it here. I don't know a lot of people. My job is ok, but I don't love it."

"So, that's it, then? You're going."

"Yeah."

Next Wednesday is today.

Holy crap. Just like that. Sounds like they hadn't left mentally in the month they'd been there. Sad and especially sad for you since you we're being considerate enough to think of their emotional well being.
Hugs,

That sucks. I can understand missing home, but I would think it takes more than a month to know whether it's just normal just-left missing or missing it so much you need to go back.
