So I have been pretty unhappy with work due to a few things…one of them feeling like there is no room to move up in the “company” and the other is feel like i am treated with no respect at times.
This morning was no exception. I’m not feeling good and tired after a restless night. My job is very laid back and due to it being summer and not having classes, I work a set amount of hours BUT at any time/day of the week I want (this is a plus and do not take that for granted)
I have been wanting to give her my notice of leaving but the time never came up at work..there wuld always be clients etc.
ANYWAYS, she was super rude to me and I am just left fuming.
I want to email my resignation because in-person I always leave things out / am way too nice.
Or should I just ignore what happened today, wait until next week and let her know?
My wedding is coming up and I really want to be out of there before my wedding/upcoming full-time semester

Well it is always a good idea to have a written letter when you resign, however I would give this to her in person, not email.

I would wait if you hope to list this employer on a resume or ask for a reference. Otherwise you will come across as an immature girl, quitting in a huff with no notice to the employer.
Do you plan to give notice?

I would write it, but put it in a formal letter and hand it to her.

You don’t want to burn any bridges, so a very carefully worded letter is a good way to resign. Don’t say “you’re rude/I’m not respected”- thank them for the opportunity when you give them your two weeks.
“Dear NAME: Please accept this letter as my formal notice of resignation from COMPANY, effective DATE. I am grateful for the kind of associates I have had the opportunity to work with and I wish the team continued success in all its endeavors.”
Keep it simple. When someone asks your boss for a referral, she can say you left on good terms.

It’s always better to resign in person. You don’t want to burn any bridges you don’t have to, and if you have to use your former boss as a references when you apply to jobs later you want her to give you a good one. Some towns or job markets may be smaller than you think and you don’t want to risk her badmouthing you to anyone either.

@julies1949: it would be a notice, not just quitting.
