Okay, where to start?
Let’s start with from the most recent of events. Yesterday, I handed in my notice at my current job. Unlike the last time, when I handed in my notice before coming to work at my current workplace, I actually cried while handing in the resignation letter. You must think me a big baby, and I would even say you could be right, because that was really rather silly and unprofessional of me. If I could control the tears I would – crying in front of your still-new boss is certainly no ego trip – but I have problems controlling tears my whole life so I’m not going to give myself stick anymore for something that has happened over half a year ago already.
Anyway, yes! I handed in my notice yesterday, instead of today as I initially planned because I thought that might be a bit too cheeky. I also thought if the timing to hand in my notice yesterday wasn’t right, then it would give me more time to do so today. Also, the boss flits in and out of the office frequently so that was the best plan.
All morning yesterday, I was fretting and ansxious about handing my notice in. I didn’t have much work to do to distract me either. I chatted with a blog buddy online as something to do and in hopes of thinking about something else, but I kept coming back to that anyway, gah.
My boss usually comes in an hour or two after working hours begin. I was hoping he’d still be in during lunch hour and then I could slip in my letter away from my colleagues’ prying eyes. Thankfully, he did stay in during lunch and I rather sneakily went to his office to submit some work and hand in my letter at the same time.
I’m pretty sure he didn’t expect that, so he didn’t have much of a reaction. He just smiled and asked, “You found a job elsewhere?” I nodded. “Bored of this job already?” I shook my head and mumbled something while smiling weakly. He tried to probe about where I’m going to work next but I vaguely replied him. I rather not have anyone there know where exactly I’m going. Then I explained to him that I know my resignation couldn’t be at a worse time because a colleague is taking a long leave soon and I would’ve been the one taking up the workload of this colleague. So I offered him some options, as some of you might know what it is. He said he appreciated my offer and was about to say some more when he phone rang and I shot out of there.😀
What an anti-climax, huh (for some of you expecting a bit more drama than that!)?😆
The important thing is, come July, I’m definitely working at my new job! And what exactly is my new job?
