Take This Job and Shove It

So...I quit my job yesturday afternoon.

After a few horrendous weeks, the final straw came when my boss told me that she's basically not going to consider my proposal (see this) until an uncertain date in the future. Even though she previously told me that working out a modified schedule would not be an issue, she stated that since the office is currently hiring for 3 other positions, she's unable to consider any alternatives for me until everyone is hired and fully trained - she was still hiring 4 weeks ago when I was told it would not be a problem. Nothing has changed. Let's not forget to mention that two of my other co-workers were recently allowed to modify their hours.

I can't help but take it personally.

I essentially said WTF and emailed (I'm still working out of a satellite campus - against my will) my resignation at the end of the day yesturday.

I have Mike's blessing at this point. I think he's just tired of me crying myself to sleep at night. I know he's extremely worried about money, as am I, but I'm sure we'll work something out. Luckily, he has been offered unlimited overtime recently and does not see this option being eliminated anytime soon. I hope he's right.

My last day will be next Friday, June 4th. Yes, that's right. I did not give a full 2 weeks notice. And no, I do not care. Honestly, they're lucky I'll be here that long.

The plan for now is to just enjoy the summer while spending time with Abbey. I'll keep my eyes open for any part-time positions that may open up going foward.

Good riddance!

Good for you! I really don't think you'll regret this choice. Your DD will only be this small once and when it's gone, it's gone. I'm sure you will enjoy the time you will now have to spend with her!


I just wanted to let you know, Good for you! It seemed as you were so unhappy, God will open doors for you!


I'm so proud of you! I know this has been an ongoing source of inner turmoil, and I hope that you wil be less stressed now. I hope that God will open a new door for you and allow you to stay with Abbey more often. Enjoy your summer with your sweet baby girl!


Good job. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do....!


Good for you!!!! You go girl! Enjoy your time off with your baby girl!


Good for you! I wish I could do the same...hopefully soon. It must feel like such a weight off your shoulders. Enjoy the time with your precious little one!

i am

I'm glad you're in a much better position emotionally now. Spending time with your daughter is important right now, for you AND your sanity.


good for you! You'll find something that makes you happy and hopefully the OT stays around for a while!
