The Best of Intentions...

I'm out. I gave my notice and my bosses pretty much both had temper tantrums and and told me that two weeks wasn't enough notice and that they'd need at least a month to a month and a half of notice. I've worked there for less than three months (by 5 days) and by law I don't have to give them any notice (and the person who did the job before me for 20 years only gave them 5 days notice).

One of my bosses had the nerve to say that she didn't realize there was a problem (even after several formal meetings about the problem). I think someones head has been up her butt!

Anyway, I don't want to get into all the gritty details, but with the unprofessional way they treated me today, I say screw the notice. I'm not going back.

I even have a new job already! I'm going back to my former company, but in a much different role. I will be taking care of all of their HR and payroll. I'm glad to be going back.

Now, I know I promised knitting today, but I've had a really draining day, and I didn't get the pictures I wanted, so could you wait until tomorrow?

I want to give a heartfelt thank you to every person who commented and/or contacted me regarding my last post. Your support gives me a lot of strength and it means a lot to me to know that I am not alone and have such great people in my corner.

oh Chrissy! I just read about your job woes. Really - in this market employers need to treat people better than that. You've done the right thing by them, and it sounds like they got pissy about it. Screw them. Obviously, if they really valued you as much as they claimed they would have put their words into actions. That they didn't is very significant. Congratulations of the new/old job!

Wishing you many many Blessings now and throughout the new year.

Good for you. There is absolutely no excuse for anyone to treat anyone else so badly - you did the right thing on every level, and I think you're completely justified in not returning. So glad you've got another job lined up already too!

Congratulations! Way to stand up for yourself. Think how much nicer the holidays will be without all that looming over your head. :)

You made the right decision as it's not worth it. Congratulations on your new offer & it's good to return to a previous company as they value your talents. Happy holidays!

Good for you! Now you can REALLY have a Merry Christmas!!
P.S.: I get the feeling that your former bosses were not really going to hire an assistant for you but just told you that because they were stalling for time after you submitted you resignation. Congrats on having another job lined up already. Awesome!

I meant to comment on your previous post but internet issues the past few days have kept me from doing so. However, I'm so sorry to hear about what you've been going through at work - and I am glad to hear that you've moved on. They didn't deserve you!

I'm with you. I just wouldn't go back.

HOORAY. Good on you for standing your ground, especially since management at that place is acting like a) a bunch of arsewits; b) a bunch of ostriches.

Hope you're happier with the new position.

Congratulations! How nice it must be for you to know that you don't have to go back to that stressful situation. It's great that you got another job right away, too.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
