If the severance package isn’t good enough or is too restrictive, I’ll politely decline and take the best job available for me and my family.

Even though it hurts, as you point out, to realize that they do not think I’m invaluable, I am not the vindictive type. I will not take a job just to stick it to them (although I’m not above using that possibility for a little leverage) 


"Don't get mad. Get even"

More than even, preferably. And all with the greatest regret.

I love it.

Too bad it doesn't happen to more companies who cut people out.
