I’m psychologically prepping myself for resigning this afternoon. I’m giving three weeks notice (because Bobbie will be off for one of those weeks) and offering to document my job and train the new person. I’m also asking for two free mornings per week (when possible) so I can start training for my new job or at least get some HR stuff done.

Technically, I’m still a temp and they can fire me right now. But then I only have to give 3 days notice. I’m just being nice and trying to be professional.

Best case scenario: Everything works out and nobody’s bitter.

Worst case: They fire me this week, in which case I have plenty of time to jump through HR loopholes and work on other projects.

Psyching myself up for it.

Here’s a couple good posts I found this week, both are bloggers’ reactions to pieces from respected finance publications.

David at My Two Dollars was shocked that Kiplingers published an article which told parents to stock up on toys before new safety regulations make them more expensive. So wait, we’re supposed to buy potentially dangerous toys? Because kids’ health is worth less than saving a few bucks. We could always make our own toys or let them play with the ones they already have.

KMC at Advanced Personal Finance just read (heard?)Β a piece on Marketplace which exemplified the hubric some people see in PF bloggers. He hopes you’ll smack him if he ever talks like that. And you can smack me too. It’s not all skittles and bunnies.

Big boss just got here. Wish me luck!

Edit: I told them. They took it quite well. Sad to see me go, a bit frustrated, glad that I’m staying for three more weeks…not angry. Nor overly excited πŸ˜‰

Yay, go Mrs Micah! Resigning is one of the most stressful work related things, glad it worked out. And good luck with all the babies in your new job.

That’s nice of you to stay for three more weeks. When are you starting on the other job?

Amanda R. November 8, 2007 at 10:01 pm

Yea, Mrs. Micah! It’s always kind of empowering (although I hate that word) to quit a job you don’t like. πŸ™‚

A comment on the one article: So many things are being recalled lately and a lot of it is due to parental idiocy rather than manufacturer malfunction. I think the toy makers are afraid of being sued. πŸ™‚
