Drama

Quit my job. Will be here probably 30 days unless they kick me out early. More later, but not much more. Don’t want to trash this place. Unseemly to criticize the place that’s clothed and fed you for a year and a half.

  1. You NEVER want to burn any bridges. Just move on. The freelance jobs sound like a good deal, no traffic to fight, as if Greensboro has traffic, you can work in your pj’s and you can sleep late every morning. Sounds like a great deal to me.

  2. Sucky jobs make sucky lives, so you did the right thing. Now you can write a book and everyone will know how funny you are. America needs you!

  3. Put those cats to work! Congratulations on leaving when it was necessary and not hanging on in misery. A new and better job will come sailing in (if that’s what you want) I do like to think of you lazing on the couch for a month or seven eating bon-bons and watching trashy tv with animals piled all over !

  4. Sorry about the job thing. I am guessing it was your choice and hoping that you will find your niche somewhere else very soon!

  5. Laura, Paula…my sister in law does that. The doctor’s name is Butts. Not making it up. Dr. Butts at the colon-rectal clinic. See? Things could be worse.

    Sorry to hear about this!
    Why does stuff like this have to happen to people I like and NEVER (seems) to the people I hate or the people who deserve it?
    Hang in there. May something even better and more wonderful come your way.
    Hope Lula is there consoling you. Or any of your intuitive animals.

  7. Oh, June, I have mixed feelings: I’m happy for you if it’s the start of something new and better. I’m concerned if it means stress and tough times.
    As others have said, I wish the best for you. (I have to admit that I also want to know all the details!)

  8. Of course I’m not offended, Dee from Tennessee. Thank you.
    I hate it that I can’t respond to comments anymore! I have to go on and post like everyone else, and I can’t get on at work.
    I guess that won’t be a problem for long…

  9. Shazam! I’ll be thinking about you and hope you are okay with this decision, and not sitting in a corner sucking your thumb right now.
    It will be okay, I promise.

  10. Something will work out for the good.
    (I just saw a hat at a tacky shop that said “I HATE MY JOB” and I soooooooooooo wanted to buy it but I knew I didn’t have the guts to wear it so what’s the point?
    Remember, life is short and sometimes, you gotta do what you gotta do. You’ll be fine!
    (Hope it won’t be offensive to say that I will say a prayer for you. )

  19. Like I said on Facebook, good for you! Why spend 8 hours a day at a place that makes you unhappy? Better things are out there waiting for you. I will miss hearing about miracle baby Tank and the vending machine guy who was madly in love with you. Who will he flirt with now and what will girl who doesn’t get you say?

  25. I did that once. My husband was out of town and he came home to find a blubbering mess laying in the bathtub crying about how I had up and quit. We made it work. You can too.
    Your sanity is way more important than the paycheck. Do what you need to do to care for yourself.
