I just want to quit my job, but I know that would be wholly irresponsible so I won’t. But that doesn’t stop that thought from going through my head every single time I think about work. If you are stumbling upon this, you will want to read this post to know what and why I am saying this.
And I said I wouldn’t rant in my last post, but I have to get this off my chest or my explode. Beginning with Black Friday, I started my work day at 3am ET four out of eight days. Culminating with a solid 14 hour work day on Friday for the 1st day of the month work that happens every single month. (It didn’t help that I had the flu/upper respiratory issues all week. Which I believe were partially the result of the stress/lack of sleep.)
Not a single, solitary acknowledgement of my work. Not a single “thank you” for donating all these work hours, going above and beyond, and so on. But I did hear from my boss with this type of statement “you know if you would just…” and I had to cut him off right there, saying, “well, you’ve already told me I’m fired so does that really matter at this point?” I mean, seriously?
With all this being said, I just want to quit. I just don’t want to go back to the office at all. I know that’s unrealistic, I mean, I have to get my stuff. But seriously…
Need Some Advice
So here is my question, and I know this isn’t a job advice site, but this is the closest thing I’ve got…I can do EVERYTHING I do for them remotely. I don’t have to be onsite for any of it, at all. I have two huge development projects that I am supposed to complete for them that really require me to focus on code and no be distracted. This is in addition to the mundane daily and weekly tasks I take care of.
I want to write them an email and say:
“Seeing as you have already told me you are firing me after I finish these two development projects and launch them (Feb. 1), I do not see any need to be a regular presence in the office any longer. I will continue to do all the work I do for you, including creating some SOPs (which is more than I had when I started) from home while you search for someone to take over.”
I could go to the office for check ins on the two larger projects I am working on, but at this point I definitely do not have any intention of fighting to stay. I do not want to work there any longer. I don’t want to burn my bridges, but I am just so angry and feel so taken advantage of and feel so bullied.
What are your thoughts? I am barely containing myself from sending the email now. But I am definitely on the verge. (And to be honest, if they have anything to say to me about Friday (my 3am-7pm shift,) I will probably lose it right there. But I am trying.) Please advise.
The sorrow and joys of this roller-coaster overwhelm her at times, but she is committed to this course.
Hope plans to dig out of debt using any resource possible including her small business EPOH, her blog and any other resource that comes to mind!
