Take this job and shove it! I ain't workin' here no more....

Yesterday started as a lousy day. but, it got lots better about 3:45 pm when Kaity got pulled from the Lottery for All-Day Kindergarten next year. I was so excited! And happy! I finally had the kick in the ass to do what I have been wanting to do. I have been hoping and praying that Kaity would get in to All-Day so that I can have the motivation to get a job during the day-time, so that I can be with my family in the evenings. So here's a few of the drafts of the letter I'll hand to my boss today at 4:00 PM....

Dear Boss,



p.s. can I still work til June 19th though?

Dear Boss Man,

As of this date above, I am giving you official notice of resignation from my position in your establishment, effective June 19th, 2008.

My family comes first. Money is needed, but not so bad that my family has to suffer. You obviously don't get that, because you don't have kids, and your wife works with you. You don't care that I am the primary caretaker of my children and that sometimes, they need me more than they need money. This was very apparent last month when you tried to guilt me into working more hours than I wanted when you little pet worker was out of town. You have no idea what it is like to be me, so don't try to pretend like you do. It's a feeble attempt to manipulate me for your own profit.

As much as I enjoy working for you and our regular customers, the money is not worth the barrage of relationship issues my family has experienced as of late, and with respectful requests from both my husband and children, I am resigning. I hope 30 days notice is sufficient enough for you. It should be. I don't know many waitresses who would do this much for a job that doesn't even pull in $100 in tips a week sometimes.

Hrm...too many big words, plus I don't need to tell him why. Not obligated, so I won't....

Dear Boss Man,

As of June 19th, 2008 I will be resigning as waitress at Little Restaurant. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you, and I hope you will have continued success with your business.

Short but's perfect!

Now I need to work on my resume and find out about Navy After-school Care... but I can do that tomorrow....

oh and I got a fabulous hair-cut today too...I'll post pics later or tomorrow...Paint Shop Pro is being a royal pain for me, and I haven't the patience right now to figure it out.

Hope Your Tuesday is Totally Tubular,

I always find less to be better in these situations too. I tend to get wordy, write 30 drafts then settle on the 3 sentence email :).

Yay you!

Awesome! I'm glad to hear about the all-day kindergarten. Hopefully this is just another step forward for you to be living life on the terms you want...

Congrats on the all-day Kindy thing. Can't believe they rely on a lottery system for that. Why don't they do it for everyone?

Did I already ask you this? I can't remember, but would it be possible for you to list your full posts in your feeds? Or are you doing it for some stealthy spy-like reasons?
