I handed in my resignation at one of my jobs last week.
I won't bore you with all the details but I do want to document. good, bad...
I was called last night at midnight by the office manager telling me they had called me on Friday but hadn't heard back and had covered my hours and I didn't need to come back in.
ummm... my paycheck? my therapy supplies? my games and toys? hello! and btw, NO ONE called me on Friday!
So I called her back at 7 this morning and said fine but no one called me on Friday and I still had stuff to get.
She tried to nail me down on a time to come in and I thought that was weird. Until I got to the school. And was asked to sit in the waiting area and wait for the manager. Again, weird. Who then proceeded to escort me through the building like a common criminal, watch me while I gathered my things like I was going to steal their things, and escorted me back out to my car. I don't know if I got all my things. I didn't get to say good bye to any of the therapists who I actually enjoyed working with, any of the kids I dearly loved, or the teachers who I collaborated with. I didn't get to bring treats tomorrow like I thought I would. I had steeled myself when I resigned last week that they might invite me to just leave. But they hadn't. They had agreed to my finishing out two weeks. And then they did this.
I feel better about leaving now.
I don't regret not working for them any more.
I appreciate my current/new boss with a whole new level of respect.
And I haven't decided NOT to give them a piece of my mind. But I doubt it would do any good.
