Would she be any more "disappointed" in you if you grabbed her boob? I say go for it, she will look forward to you leaving and you wont be on a guilt trip. That would be a win win situation. :)

I got the line " I am dissapointed in you" for putting in my notice :D

I was purplexed by that line...
Your Reply: Yes, I'm dissapointed in me too. I work for a company that wasn't able to counter offer with a better package than the offered by a second company that wants me. I guess my present company really doesn't want me and in essence is saying, " Don't let the door hit you on the way out."

Definately contact HR. If HR doesn't prevent a retalliatory exit evaluation, contact a lawyer. Lawsuits prevent sh!tty behavior like that.

Just go for 2 weeks and then quit on the last day... you aren't required to give 2 weeks notice its a courtesy.

put in 4 weeks then, just make sure that you let it be known that you are going to go on a 2 week vacation in 2 weeks.

Remember, you're an At Will Employee, you can quit anytime, they can fire you at anytime and believe me, they wouldn't give you the courtousy of 4 weeks when they fire ya ass.

This isn't even a dilemma. It's just about your boss being a bitch. If I were you, I wouldn't worry about her.

you worry too much.....during your exit interview express you concerns...then move on...

ok let me say it again..move on..you have successfully closed a chapter in your life..you are about to open a new one at your new job...move on....stop worrying...

Give a 30 day notice period and say that you are going on a vaction after 14 days. Say that you want a break before the new job.

Your boss thinks that you are on vacation, meanwhile you can go and join the new job.

If ou have two weeks worth of leave time accumulated, schedule the last two weeks as vacation. Problem solved. ;)

Did you sign a contract saying you would give 30 days? If not, leave in 7 and enjoy a week off before the new job starts.

Just tell her that you gave 2 weeks as a courtesy. if she doesn't like that, you can always leave now...then contact HR and explain to them what's going on, and let them know you are leaving in 2 weeks...IF she doesn't become too much of a bitch...otherwise, you'll leave sooner.

LOL reminds me of a guy I used to work with. The whole dept went out to lunch one day but he didn't come. When we got back in the office, there was an email from him to everyone in the dept saying:

Subject: While you were at lunch...

Body: ...I got another job! Bye!
:D

OK sorry for the long delay but here is a recap...

I gave a 14 day notice...technically the work policy is going tobe updated to be a requirement of 30 days but since that has not been posted I am only required to give 14 days..

Needless to say if I thougth she was a rag when I gave notice she was 10 times worse since she found out I only gave 14 days notice.



AND for all the boob comments she is like 55 :D So no way in hati is that happening

Why do you need an exit review? You've already got a new job. The only review you should be worried about now is the one you'll get when you leave the new job.
