The drama continues...


Yesterday was one of the most emotionally draining days of my life.

I prepared myself mentally before approaching my boss. He didn't suspect a thing and even proposed we go out for coffee to "chat". Hmmm... don't know about that... but what to do?

Our "chat" started out with usual niceties and small talk. And then, I proceeded to break the news as gently as possible. And his response was an astounded "YOU'RE RESIGNING???". So I realise that there's really no gentle way to tell your boss this kind of news.

After the so called "chat", I could sense a shift in the atmosphere and the mood. A sort of tension... or maybe it was simply just me being sensitive and emotional...

After that I immediately called a friend working nearby and asked her out for lunch. I just needed to get out for some fresh air to clear my head...

The worst thing is that back at the office, the computer servers were down. So we couldn't access any of our files and documents to do any work.... It was so frustrating to hang around doing nothing... when what I most needed to do was to keep myself busy and occupied to take my mind of the unpleasantries of my morning coffee session with my boss.

Today I handed in my letter of resignation.

The computer server problem was still unresolved... so I just did my best to "muck around" and occupy myself with various tasks. Very boring actually.

I hope that tomorrow that everything will be up and running again so that I can keep myself busy.

  1. Look at it from the boss's perpective. Any boss would be sore to lose a good worker. However, do make amends and do your best the last few days of your work and leave, hopefully with no hard feelings. Put up a brave face - you are after all within your rights as far as the probation period is concerned.
