@missjewels:  You are not required to give 2 weeks notice.  Just quit.

I’m so sorry you’re experiencing this and I am in virtually the same situation (without the rude remarks).

In no professional setting should a superior speak to an employee in that manner. If you work as hard as you say you do then they are probably at a point where they take you for granted and it is time to move on. I would put your best foot forward and hope that they write you a letter of recommendation. I find this to be the case at small businesses more than large companies (you would think the opposite).

You sound like a fabulously hard worker and any company should be thrilled to have you.

Wow, that really sucks.  Whatever happened must have been pretty bad, because it sounds like the whole environment is fairly toxic.  Just ignore all of them, and be thankful for your new opportunity!

@missjewels:  It sounds like you work with some very immature people. I’ll echo that you don’t need to keep putting up with this, go ahead and just quit.

Managers are supposed to appreciate that new opportunities happen and people need to move on to bigger and better things. Anyone who doesn’t appreciate that doesn’t deserve to have you with them.

+1 to everything that’s been said. Sounds like my old job. :

And @Bazingau:  is correct–you do NOT have to give a 2-week notice if you don’t care about being hired back in. It’s courteous, but if they treat you like shit, I’d probably just tell them to screw off and stop showing up. You won’t be able to use them as a reference, but I’m not sure they’d be very gracious about how hard you worked.

@missjewels: I say, take the high road and kill them with kindness. Although they don’t sound like the brightest crayons in the box, so I don’t even know if giving them two weeks and being pleasant will give them reason to give you a reference.

Good luck! Make sure you have a fabulous celebratory dinner once you’re outta there for good!

I guess the way they are acting is just confirming why you are leaving. Keep your head high and just do your job. You do not need to be anyone’s friend but if you’re forced to interact with them, just ignore their attitudes and act like nothing has changed. Like @mgol25 said, kill them with kindness!
