So…. today I handed in my notice. I have worked my current job for 3.5 years and haven’t really enjoyed it, most of all haven’t enjoyed working for my boss. 5 years ago I had a temp job that I loved, the company loved me and they were gutted, as was I when I had to finish at the end of my 1 year contract as they couldn’t afford to keep me on.
They have always said when they could afford to have me back they would offer me something, and they have. I have always said I won’t come back unless I am the manager, which is the job they have offered me. So, essentially my dream job working for fantastic people. And I mean, amazing bosses! You know, the ones that reward hard work and loyalty and don’t take it for granted, bosses who actually care for the health and happiness of their staff. You know, good normal people!
I was so scared about handing my notice in this morning, (I even had a panic attack last night and I never have panic attacks), I was shaking, couldn’t get my words out, utterly scared. BUT it is over now.
I can’t “go public” with this yet as both sides want to delay the announcement for their own reasons. But I am so excited I want to scream! And so relieved my current job is finally coming to an end,
So, really just a silly post to say GOODBYE OLD JOB, HELLO AMAZING NEW JOB!!!!!

@MsBeer: I’m having the same feeling, though I did have to share it IRL because it was too much to hold in. I can’t wait to get out of here and into a job that I can like again, with GOOD management!

Isn’t it so ironic that when you’re in a job you hate all you can fantasize about is the day you’ll finally quit…and then when that day comes you’re petrified?

@sara_tiara: I know, seriously, been dreaming of this day for a very long time. Panic attack and tears last night, upset stomach and the shakes this morning, stumbled all over my words which was not what I had planned (Wanted to go in strong, fierce, not let him scare me)! What a wreck! Dream becoming reality and I manage to make a massive drama out of it! ha ha. My new boss just emailed me saying Woopee! And said my current boss is clearly a tosser. This made me feel a lot better! 🙂
