Having To Give Two Weeks Notice

Okay, honestly, I’m not sure if this applies to everyone, but for me, it does. Today, I have to quit my job.

It’s not that I want to. It’s just that I’ve found a better job and I could really use the better pay. Plus, its closer to home.

It hasn’t happened yet, but I’ve given my two weeks notice before. Think about it: It’s so nerve-wracking. I’m getting the chills thinking about it right now, and I’m not even doing it yet!

I feel bad leaving my job. Especially because I haven’t been working there very long and, not to sound cocky, but they do really like me there.

And it’s unfortunate that I have to wait two WHOLE weeks. Two weeks! Can’t I just quit? No, of course not. I have to leave the door open in case I want my job back. Which, I can definitely get back. Because, even in this economy, HomeGoods (which is where I work), is hiring. Can you believe that?

I don’t want to wait two weeks to start my new job. It’s going to be a long two weeks, let me tell you.

Generally, when I’ve given two weeks in the past, my time at the job didn’t last two weeks. On average, I would say I was there a week before I was gone. So, maybe that will happen here. Maybe I can just leave. However, I don’t want to simply leave. I do like my job. I just have a more attractive job available to me. And for those wondering, the answer is “Yes, I did get the other job already. I’m not frivolously quitting.”

Yes, so I get to leave my minimum wage job at HomeGoods for an extra $1.25 an hour (which, even working 20 hours a week, is still $100 more a month…that pays my phone bill!)

I don’t want to wait two weeks to start my new job. It’s going to be a long two weeks, let me tell you.

Anyway, bottom line: I’m nervous. Wouldn’t you be? I’m afraid they’re going to hate me. They might. Who knows?
