…Life is Highway…

This morning was a great one for me. I was excited, I was happy, I was awake. Then the stress of the day started to pile on and my day became overwhelming. My bosses have been dumping work on me and not providing training. I’ve asked them about training but they don’t want to provide it because they won’t be keeping me here long (they dont’ say that exactly, but there’s been some transitions here in the office and one of them seems to be slowly weaseling me out).

I went home for lunch, burst into tears, and talked to the hubby about the job situation. We’ve talked about it constantly for the past several weeks but these last two weeks have really made everything boil down. At the end of our conversation, I decided that it was best I quit. Asap. I have two job offers and multiple resumes out there, there’s no reason for me to stay at this job other than to be polite to them…which honestly, is a load of crock. They have completely taken advantage of my situation and place here and have abused their privileges.

I’m not the kind of girl to just quit, to not come into work one day or call and tell them I quit. That’s just too “high school” for me. Not that I did that in high school either, but you know what I mean…

I came back to work after lunch, much to the surprise of my co-workers, and gave the boss my notice. I’m only giving them several days notice, not to be snotty or disrespectful, but because I need to look out for myself now. I’ve spent 11 months catering to them with no appreciation, it’s about time I looked after myself.

After I gave my boss that letter of…quittance? :)…I felt a huge burden lift off of my shoulders. I feel free now, I feel lighter and less stressed. I’m going to take a few days off before I start a new job, just to relax, enjoy the beautiful weather and regroup.
Now…if only I was close to a beach…

  1. I hope it all works out your way. Hang in there.
