Dear OMD friends,

I've got a announcement to make.This friday is my last day at work.
I quit!!!!!!
My husband and I decided this in July.It was best for us all.
And I'm be glad.
I had two conversations with two of the childcare offices and they want to have me.
In the meantime I bring the saturday paper round.( no official date of doing this)
I'm glad,because this afternoon a assistent of my boss came to me and asked me if quit,because he heard it and he wants to know for sure that is was no rumour.So when I was tellin'him the short story of it all,Our regular costumers heard it and asked me some quiestions.
So I answered them.I can't say.Oh,I'm sorry,but you had to asked my boss why.
So when I entered the office she was angry at me and she said If you doing it tomorrow again(Tuesday) then it will be your last day.
And saturday we will go on a holiday.We are going to france to the atlantic coast.

Threatening to fire you after you already quit?  That says it all.  Do it again and when she calls you into her office, do this . . .

. . . and have a great vacation and enjoy your new job!

You're entitled to serve your notice anyway. Good for you!

Did this myself a few years ago, and in hindsight things were tough for a bit, but no regrets.

Good luck for the future!

Sorry to hear of your troubles, djpamm, but here's hoping that  you have a wonderful holiday with your family and that you come back refreshed and ready for a change of career. Everyone desrves to be treated farily at work, but sometimes you just have to move on. Well done you for taking that first step.  


Onwards and upwards...

Hi djpamm,
Glad you had a good holiday and really hoping that something turns up soon for you. Don't know how it works where you are, but in this country it really helps if you can volunteer somewhere. Everyone that I work with (including me!) started as a volunteer and then got offered paid work...  

Best of luck with it all.

yep volunteering is definitely a good thing. Good on the CV, good for a reference, good to show that you're willing, it goes on. Good point, Sandra.

Hey Mariska, did you get another job sorted in the end? I'm sure you did, and I've probably missed it somewhere, but thought I'd ask again!

That's a nightmare. Did you hear anything further about the operation (I know you did another thread, but it kinda slots in with what you have said in your post above.....)
