Good luck to you. I wish I had that kind of courage. I was a nervous wreck last week waiting for a background check to clear so I could give my (less than 2-weeks) notice. I got the job. It's almost 20% more pay and I think will be really challenging, but I am so worried I will screw up and not be good at it. I treated myself to a shopping excursion - now I need to motivate myself to get rid of some too-big clothing!

Well...The good news is I got offered the job. The bad news is it pays the same and the hours are from 4:30pm to 1am, and I would have to share an office. Bleh! But, I do have a second interview with another company today which pays more is 9-5:30, my own office and such. I feel pretty confident since one of the executives I am meeting with use to be my GM at the other company I jut left.

Thanks for the support.

So...I e-mailed the guy from the other company. He said I would be contacted when a position was open and I would be interviewed. That was Wednesday. Thursday I thanked him for his timely response. Friday I was called by their HR to schedule an interview. I have an interview with his boss and him on Monday. WHEW HOO! So, I think the chances are good.

Its about process over product.

Way to stand on your principles!

I hope you get that other job. It would be great to see the look on your former bosses face after that.

Rock on!

Congrats on the job quit. Aaah, boobs at work. I work with all men - mostly former Marines. I have taken to wearing crew neck t-shirts under everything because, like you, anything else and you can see down my shirt from above. Since I'm short, this causes a problem. It sucks, and I shouldn't have to, but I hate the idea of these creepy old farts looking at my breasts. Outside though, I'm happy to show off my not-too-bad-for-a-36-year-old 36Ds.

The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.

Here is a story.. I quit my job. Without having another one. Kind of grand throwing my boss the bird but with respect. My HR lady is an old punk, (meaning when punk began)I told her he was the only reason I quit. Mind you I am one of the best in what I do, and have had no actual disciplinary actions taken against me. I work in the film industry...so this story probably makes sense.

So, I worked in a place where nepotism was so rampant. That didn't bother me.

I worked with a bunch of crazy people. That didn't bother me.

My boss didn't like me, that didn't bother me because I don't like him.

Now. One of the reasons my boss didn't like me was because my clothing choice. I love knee highs, and stripes especially. And he seemed greatly disturbed with my breasts. Not realizing I have huge breasts that if you are tall enough no matter how high my shirt is you can see down it. He was also a big liar.

So that is the boring part.

The reason I quit was I was not invited to a dinner. A dinner with another company to bridge gaps. Mind you there were about 80 people on the list. 1 of which was my boyfriend who I got the job. And another was a dear friend of mine who doesn't know how to be appropriate to save his life. My boyfriend told mister boss man he wouldn't go to the dinner unless I was invited. Mister boss man said I could go if I toned it down!!! Mind you my dear friend mentioned before has behavioral problems. I was put on the list with the guy who tried to burn the bar down at the christmass party and another guy who behaves as if he has terrets. So needless to say I was unhappy...

but didn't quit yet.

Then I heard from a friend who does not talk out of turn they heard my boss complaining about me bitterly. Which was the last straw. I can not be disrespected by my boss or anyone I work for. So I quit. One of the reasons he said I was not invited was because the other company didn't like me. Well, my boyfriend went to the dinner, and one of the main managers came over to him and asked if I had quit, and asked him to tell me to send my resume not once but 3x.

HEHE! So, hopefully I will be getting that job and making more than my previous boss...

Can't help but be vindictive...a little bit.
