Supervisor is uber PISSED. I haven’t heard a word from the other bosses (one of whom I’ve been worried about), but they were wrapped up in meetings all day. Supervisor wants to “talk” first thing tomorrow morning.

  1. Oh God. I hate what you’re going through. I’ve been there, and it is NOT pleasant. But remember, it’s extremely uncomfortable right now, but it’ll be worth it and you’ll be surprised how quickly you forget about it once you’re out of that environment. And of course, when you pass the bar this July, it’ll be totally worth it!! Keep us posted, and hang in there!

  2. Ditto what Blawgin’ said. I think I broke out in hives when I read your post today. You gotta do what you gotta do…..no one else is gonna pass this test but you!!

    I am thinkin’ about ya….

  3. Thanks so much for the kind words and positive vibes! I’m at work right now, and there is a lot of tension. Supervisor just e-mailed me and said to come into his office in half an hour and also said to forward him the most recent version of my exit memo before coming in. Judging from Supervisor’s reaction yesterday, he expected me to skip the July bar, so I don’t think this meeting is going to go well, especially if he is bringing the other bosses into it. Oh man, I hope not.

  4. Head up, chest out, solider!

    You have to take care of you and yours before you can devote yourself to something else. You did the right thing for your priorities. Besides, they can’t cancel your xmas or anything. 🙂

  5. True, but I probably shouldn’t count on them for a reference. I just got my ass chewed by Supervisor. Only 2 more bosses left to chew whatever’s left of my ass. I just feel so bad right now. It seems like I can’t make anyone happy or win at anything these days.

  6. FYI: it is none of their business why you are leaving now. Period. Think about it – at any other time, in any other job – ‘personal’ – does that mean a drinking or drug problem, emotional trouble at home – just can’t put up with a negative/racist/alcoholic boss any longer? Personal has a lot of connotations, none of which are any of their business. ‘Personal family matter’ – does that mean a looming divorce, an ill spouse, a mentally ill spouse, a parent in need of care, a kid in rehab – again, personal reasons are just that and even if an employee flat out breached a contract with an employer, you deal with that issue, not the reasons behind it.

  7. I’m sooo sorry about all this. Don’t let them hassle you on this — just say you have unexpected personal problems and feel that it takes priority at this point and that you’re giving them as much notice as possible. Say it was certainly unanticipated, and you regret the inconvenience, and that you’ll do whatever you can to ease the transition.

    If they ask you about the bar, tell them that was also a difficult time for you and that you don’t have any “definite” plans to take it in July. Be vague about that. Say you have to deal with these other issues first, because, again, they’re a priority!

    My thoughts are with you…I’ll be checking back to see how you are!

  8. Don’t feel bad! You have clearly handled this the best, most professional way you could. That is all anyone could expect. This is not indentured servitude but a job. At the end of the day, you gotta do what ya gotta do and as long as you do it politely and with grace, no one can ask anything else of you….

    You only need to make YOU happy…everyone else will fall in line…..

  9. I totally understand what you’re going through. Our situations are so similar, but when all is said and done, it would be worth it.
