I submitted my two weeks notice today with a lot of relief and a twinge of regret. I am very excited about my new job -- I am in desperate need of a shot in the arm -- but there are a lot of things about, and especially people from, this job that I will miss.
15 minutes ago I almost caved. The head of our division brought me into his office and dangled a 25% raise in front of me if I agreed to stay. My jaw hit the floor. It is so nice to be loved the way a desperate trick craves his whore. And I almost sold my body...emptied my soul to fill my wallet. But I stood strong and realized that the utter hopelessness that plagues my workplace would not be solved by a higher paychek. I am overpaid and overfed as it is. Now I can be happy again too.
Man I could have used that money...
