You also want to put them on notice that they best be careful about what they say about you to prospective employers.

Re: i just gave them my notice....

Not only do you want them to know the gig is up but you want to protect yourself, talking to a lawyer couldn't hurt. If they thought you took it the moment you quit they would have taken your keys and escorted you to the door. It might be a good idea to turn in your keys now, just to CYA so to speak before you leave.

And yes any true HR exit interview would have included information about your benefits package upon leaving.

Sorry for the temporary hi-jack, fed, but I just sent you a PM regarding your duct cleaning expertise.


back on topic - - If THAT is how your soon-to-be former employer treats your exit interview, then no wonder you're excited to be leaving.

I am beginning to wonder if the employer has problems beyond the typical employee relations. . .

Re: i just gave them my notice....

they are all crazy. I had a long talk with the owner today. it went from constructive to destructive quickly. may main objective was to turn in my keys to avoid further issues. the conversation went south when he told me i have an altered perception of reality!!! i almost lost it right then and there


Final outocme is i turned in everything and walked out today. No way could i work another 8 days in what has become a very hostile work environment.

Oh well... I have a job lined up tomorrow...air ducts....gotta love it...1st day off the job and im going to make 2.5x what i;d make at my 9-5 tomorrow...and in only 3 hours!

Re: i just gave them my notice....

WOW.....

What a bummer to end your work situation on a down note.

But, you should be happy to get out of that negative environment. Hope that's the end of it and you got out before the company emplodes.

Congratulations on your change and I'm sure you will succeed at whatever you do.

It's a shame you had to leave with ill feelings.* Thankfully I avoided that when I left my job three months ago.* Leaving on good terms with friendships intact and predominantly good memories was one of my key goals.* Hopefully your bitter departure is now behind you and you can get on with your new entrepreneural endeavors without looking back.

There's nothing to be neverous about. Your future is in your hands.* Go get 'em!

Re: i just gave them my notice....

I think it's written somewhere in the management tutorial guide that they're required to tell you something along those lines. A couple months back I had a little discussion with my supervisor about how, well, "south" the work environment was heading, mainly because of one person in particular, and all I got was "well maybe it's not that she's doing anything to you, but you're PERCEIVING that she's doing something to you". And then she suggested that I take a coping course.

I came close to asking her if a bear really sh!ts in the woods, or do we just perceive that it does? Looking back I kinda wish I had said that, but my retirement goal date is still about 9 years off. I dunno if I want to make it TOO premature!

Anyway, good luck with your endeavors. It sounds like you made the right decision!

Well, that is certainly one way to completely blow it off and do nothing to rectify the situation.* Sounds oddly familiar....

Re: i just gave them my notice....

I am not dealing with this 'not working' so well. I've got a knot, like a nervous/anxios knot, in my stomach all the time. Im restless and all that cures it is Captain Morgain...uh oh!!

Seriously, it will be a difficult adjustment it seems. I like to sleep,so sleeping in isnt bad...BUT I also love money, and i already miss my paycheck. I havent signed any new jobs yet...but then again, I only need 3-4 per MONTH..so why am I worrying? I dont know.

My dad is a painting contractor, and has a job next week if I want to work a bit...and to ease this transition, I think I will. I will make about 100 bucks/day for 3 or 4 days...and that's be 30-40% of what I 'need' to break even each month.

Im finishing up my second home rehab as well, so that'll keep me busy. i have the $$$ set aside for construction costs, but now a $40 box of screws makes me pause for a minute..whereas 2 weeks ago I'd grab 2 just to have them.

I've already started consciously limiting my spending...no 24 back of french bread pizza for me :-( It looked so good, but I'm trying teach myself to LBYM.


I'd like to hear what you all do to keep busy. I needa CHEAP hobby. I've already decided to start a weight lifting routine again on OCT 1. That usually keeps me focused for about 6 months. I'd also like to buy a kayak which I assume I can lug around in/on my van. When the wether breks in spring I think that would be some fun....and good exercise. I'm going to organize the garage this winter, and maybe put up sopme new doors in the house


Sorry for rambing,,,,I guess I have no point. Thanks for listening

Jason

Jason, you have so much energy you make me tired.*

How about going on some adventures with your kid?* You don't always have to be accomplishing something.
