That's funny, I had 'one of those days at work' too. I'm also jealous. But, a little over six months to go.

Add me to the jealous group. I think I may be following closely behind you, as I also had one of those days yesterday and the day before and the day before. I think I am so done with the BS.

So what's next? Are you taking time off or will the search commence for your next job?

I was a little nervous. I have only been in this job a little over a year, but I knew it was time to get out. I was laughing on the inside though...

I had been in negotiations for about a month before I quit. I have a new job all lined up. Nice promotion, nice bump up in salary, nice signing bonus. I start in June with 2.5 weeks off before that.
