Reactions After Quitting

Oh Josh Anna, why do you say that I hated teaching?! Fine. I hated it, but I keep thinking about all the planning and the fun stuff, not the stupid, mean criminals kids that I would be keeping out of prison helping. Maybe I should give it another shot?

As for the letter, he didn't say ANYTHING. I don't know if he was thanking me for giving him 2 weeks notice or if he was thanking me for saving him from firing me. I just think it was one of those situations where he has totally written me off for some reason, so there is nothing I could've done to please him. The letter he wrote to me also said something about my performance as a manager as being poor. I was the only one in the office besides him; therefore, I really didn't have anyone to manage...

Now that I look back, I see that he was treating the girl that quit (about 2 weeks after I was hired...) just like he is treating me. Weird pattern.

I feel SUCH a sense of relief that it is over, though. I am hoping that knowing that I am leaving will keep him off my back for the remainder of my time there. He hardly talked to me at all today, so I guess that is a good sign!

Well GREAT for you! The last time I quit, I was pee'd off afterwards because, the boss didn't even try to get me to stay. That really made me mad. But boy am I happy to be outta there. And you will be too! Job-wise, I got nothing. But I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Hooray. Congratulations on your gutsy move. I know that wherever you chose to work will be better than there, even if it is with a bunch of brats/delinquents/monsters!

Well done on taking that step. He sounds like a truly awful boss. I bet you feel like a huge weight has been lifted :) Good luck with your job search!

I sometimes think that quitting a bad job is the single most freeing feeling ever. Like an emotional orgasm.

As far as jobs go, I've always had good luck going thr Randstadt as a temp-to-hire.
