Although my family is mostly Irish and Italian, we only follow a few of the cultural traditions. For the most part, we follow American traditions with a slight variation that is more family based than cultural based. It seems however, that I have developed that habit of mastering the Irish Goodbye. While many people have mastered this while out drinking, I seem to have incorporated it into everyday life as well. When I initially moved from NY to San Diego, I didn't tell people when I was leaving. My closest friend found out that I actually left via Facebook. While people may feel that I didn't care to say goodbye, that wasn't the case, it's just easier to move along. When I left San Diego for DC I did the same thing. I said goodbye to a few people, but for the most I just left. It seems that I'm on the path for doing it a 3rd time here from DC onward.
In today's day and age, I see more people "online" than I do in real life anyhow, so why make a big production about it being my last day?
