So I've given "semi-notice"

TWO managers got on the phone with me today to rag about my lunch-hour. (As in my not taking one....because how can I?) So rather than nodding my head and saying yes ma'am, no ma'am, I told them it was a moot point because I was giving notice on Friday.

TBH, they didn't seem super surprised or all that upset, but they also didn't tell me to pack and get out, which would be difficult since it's not like there's anyone here to confiscate my security pass and escort me from the building.

So that's some of the weight off my shoulder. Still planning to write my "official" letter on Friday and work out the two weeks, but at least I'm that much closer to be out the door and now in official "What are you going to do, fire me?" mode.

YAY! As my baseball loving spouse likes to yell while watching games, "YES! Fuck 'em and pound some Bud!" Not sure what that means, but that's my sentiment here. :D

There's still nearly three weeks of BS to wade through and it's really bad today.

Except it turns out that post semi-notice, I'm still have major anxiety attacks as a result of the crap that's going down here.

Still a LOT of stress and BS to get thru!

Whatever happens in the current job has NOTHING to do with you anymore. Say it to yourself every day until you are outta there!

Can't do it. F'rinstance I flaked out on taking extra commission on a rush ticket because of being focused on getting approval and you know RUSH, but I'm in terror of the shit hitting the fan when someone notices.

So...like you said, what could they do to you? Fire you? ;)

Same old same old. I'm more afraid of being criticized and disapproved of than I am of being fired. (And isn't there a fairly vivid indication of child-hood trauma in that statement?)

As my ex told me to tell a particularly problematic employer, "I came here looking for a good job and I'm still looking for that good job." Good luck to you, whatever you do.

The job was an incredibly lucky break that I desperately needed when I started there----over ten years ago. But the account I'm on is a nightmare and the management/personnel changes have made it completely intolerable, at least for me.

Think of you first. I've had 1 or 2 of those as a temp and I cut my losses. You've done well in the time you were there, but you need to think of you now. Good luck!

I feel so bad for the ones I'm leaving behind especially Stacy, who is starting to wake up to exactly what a nightmare this account is.

It will happen inevitably but be her 'ear' when she needs it. I think it's fair to say that I temp here in NY and what's happening to you is exactly why I stay a temp. And in law, especially corporate law, there have been a few situations early in my career that led me to do exactly what you're doing or risk injury. (Yes, there are times at one particular firm where physical injury did happen to a secretary. Not smart to threaten me when we're on the 23rd floor!)

The admins with the worst bosses either turn into mice or dragons. There's one we've dubbed WWW for Wicked Witch of the West, who LOVES to pit the agents against each other in hopes of catching us in a mistake she can use to her advantage in making herself look good by making us look bad.
