Do you have another lily pad to jump to, or are you going into business for yourself? Tell us more! What prompted you to leave now? Inquiring minds (and general busybodies) want to know!

I have a part-time training contract with a solicitor's firm :) 3 days a week for 5 times the salary I would receive at the job I am in now.

sweet action! that is awesome that that's even still possible in today's craptacular job world. :) Less work for more pay... wait. You don't have to kill anyone, do you?

"In today's craptacular job world", is that really a non-starter? :p

Know what? Give it to 'em and let 'em have it with both barrels. If they ask you why you're leaving say, "The customers. 99% the customers." Then elaborate. Or just walk out. And, I'd like to follow in your footsteps. Yaaayyyyy for you!!! I am so glad because your customers make me mad.

I'd start by saying, "I am hereby giving notice of leaving your employment, because - " and then go through all your posts here and list each and every event. That should make for a little light bedtime reading.

Don't be...you should feel good about this!

Change is always hard. You're going to be doing something completely different, and you want to be successful. That produces a normal sense of excitation and anxiety. Consider it a good thing; it will motivate you to do a good job. Once you get started things should get better.

I strongly urge Miss Stress NOT to do either of these things. It is completely unproductive to burn your bridges behind you. Instead be honest and tell them the new job is an opportunity for you to advance your career goals. HR will understand that, and you will be listed as eligible for rehire. You'll still need to put this job on your resume for awhile until you get established in your new field.

They make me mad too! You just wait until my last day...no more nice Miss_Stress! :devil:

I called the Boss today to make sure she got my notice. I got the short and sharp treatment. Boo effing hoo! :devil:

Indeed. That would also make for excellent storytelling here.

Thanks XCahier! If I know my boss, she'll have something nasty planned for me on Saturday, as some sort of revenge for me leaving. She's already decided I've been "grossly disloyal."

To blatantly steal from Iradney, tell your boss to get herself a dog.

Please don't do that, I'm against cruelty to animals :)
"Grossly disloyal"? Oh please, play me the world's smallest violin.
As for last-day nonsense, remember your new favourite word in the english language: no.

When I left my previous job, I told them, honestly, that I had found a job where they could use, and value, more of my skillset than they do here; and that while I usually offer previous place a chance to match the offer I was given, that I knew they weren't going to, so I wasn't going to try.

When asked, I said it was almost twice what they were paying me (which was also true). The head of the department said that was more than he made. I told him I knew that, which was why I didn't bother to ask.

That place, however (which has gone out of business), I wouldn't have stayed at even if they had matched my offer. The Cs did S, but my job was not C-facing; but the Es Sed harder.

In other words, Congratulations to Miss_Stress! Good luck, and enjoy!

That's actually pretty common. Too many people have taken revenge on their last day of work. I very much doubt that you would do something like that, but there have been instances as far as I understand it.

Pranks also happen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PJt0DXdZ0k&feature=related for example. Mind you, that was pretty damned nifty...

Wow!

I've never had the chutzpah to take revenge or play pranks on my last day of work. :o The most I've done is blast The Who's "I'm Free" on the car stereo as I'm driving away...

I do not doubt that loads of people do, though, and I'm rather glad that Miss Stress' boss thought she would. Give her a nice paid vacation instead of having to deal with Hell her workplace. Again, I say :grats:
