Well…. I did it! And to keep things on the up and up, after submitting my notice I threw in the “if you ever have a part time position available…”, well………….
they do. Specifically to phase out my position, they offered a part-time position, catered to my hours, at my current rate, for an undetermined amount of time. I took it because honestly, it would be ridiculous for me to pass it up (and I feel I’d burn a bridge after offering it). Now I feel deflated.
I am really sorry, I know I should be thankful. I am kind of thankful. I am definitely taking it. I keep telling myself these extra hours will pay for funs things, like hair and clothes. This is a blessing. Right?
*** sigh *** I am so burned out though. I’ve been burned out for the last two years. Maybe that has something to do with it 🙁
Just wanted to vent.

Let me see if I understand this…
I remember you were putting in your letter of resignation from your current job due to burnout. Sooo… what I’m reading is that you put in your letter of resignation then told them you were available for PART TIME work IF they had any openings in the future, and they happened to have one right NOW, so you took it?!
So NOW you actually still work for them, just part time?

lol. I’m sorry, I realise this sucks but it is pretty funny.
On the serious side, it will be soo different working part time. You will get the break that you need, you’ll have time to look for another job, you’ll have the ability to really enjoy leisure time without guilt because you are still earning money! Part time job is not like a full time job, they take very different amount of your reserves. You will have time to do things! Fun things! It will be a good thing, I think.

I agree with Arachna 🙂 I don’t think you will be quite as stressed out (heck I know if I could financially afford to work part-time I would do it in a second lol!) so maybe it will help you more than you think?

I can understand how this would happen. Money does afford new things and necessary things. Like previous posters said, it’s likely that you won’t be feeling as run-down with a part-time position. Any chance that you could negotiate a start date two weeks down the line and buy yourself some time between this position and the next?
