We're going in two separate directions.
It's not you, it's me.
While I like who I work with and what I do, I don't see this being a long-term, 'let's rule the world together' career anymore. I feel I can do better, and find greener pastures.
So the hunt is on. Feelers are out. I'm talking with people, and may leverage a job-change with an environment-change as well. We'll see.
But the fun question: When I find my 'greener grass,' how should I give my notice?
And since I'm 600 miles from my actual home office, I have 1 of 2 ways:
I can email them a traditional 'thank you, but BUH BYE' 2-week notice.
Or I could deliver something to them. Like a cake.
But I have no cakemaking skills.
And, although I love Mr. Cake's style, I'm not going to get a cake delivered all the way from the UK to the Western US.
So what do I do?
Can I go to Costco and ask for a strawberry-filled cake in the shape of a large middle-finger?
Or should I get a Mrs. Field's giant cookie, with my two-week notice scrawled on the top?
Finally, I found this picture:
I love this, and I could time my 'official' notice to arrive (via email) 5 minutes after the delivery arrives.
And I bet, no matter how the cake actually tastes, this cake will be so so sweet.
Have any of you ever quit in a creative way? If so, please share with a comment below!
