I did it. I handed in my resignation letter to my boss. I’m resigning effective Jan 3, 2008. If you want to know why I’m waiting until next year, I can give you several reasons.
- First, Christmas-time is usually the most enjoyable work time because no one is there. It is quiet.
- Second, I’m superstitious: I believe the way I greet the New Year determines how the New Year is going to go, so I want to be employed at the strike of the midnight clock.
- Last but not least, it appears that to get my company’s annual profit-sharing bonus, I have to be employed on December 31st.
I am happy and sad at the same time. In four and a half years I’ve made a lot of friends and accomplished a lot professionally. Now it is my time to move forward. Where is forward? It is in the direction of a cemetery, but I would rather be doing something more meaningful to me than battle management while I am slowly crawling there.Share:
