Two Weeks Notice

I gave the old place the customary two weeks. I specified the exact day that would be two weeks away.

My boss looked like a deer in headlights. She said I had too much to do to leave on that short notice (thereby proving she has no idea how I spend my days). I stood firm. Two weeks.

She then sent notice to HR that I was leaving, but added on a week to my final day.

There will be new craziness at my new job. Of course. That's the way jobs go. But it won't be INANE like this one.


  1. Let's hope they dont suddenly pile everything on you now like an ex boss did to me when I announced I was leaving.

  2. LOL! Now she values you. As long as you get a party and there is cake, all will be good.

    I gave my last boss 10 working days. He wasn't going to replace me and a couple of extra days weren't going to help him get up to speed (since he hadn't been doing any of the work).

    Although I didn't get cake, I did get a nice farewell brunch.

  3. You should just leave that place with two middle fingers blazing. Screw 'em.

    Yeah new job!!

  4. So, are you going to leave after two weeks? Or will you give them the extra week, too?

    Also, giving notice blows.

  5. Hey, you gave them two weeks. That's more than some folks do!
