I handed in my (five weeks)notice yesterday and suggested that I get some of the remaining period as garden leave as they don't really need me any more. Today my supervisor said that they would terminate my contract forthwith and pay me a month in lieu plus the extra week and remaining holiday, and I could go today. So I cleared out my desk, fired off a couple of emails to people, handed back my credit card laptop and business cards, and got walked out. I am now a free woman!!! It was oddly emotional even tho I hate the place. So basically I get until January 9th when I start the new job as holiday! Yaaay! I'm thinking of temping for a couple of weeks to earn a few bucks to get me through christmas in a more liquid fashion.

Ayway just wanted to share my relief/joy and laugh at you all for only having two weeks off har har har!! ;)

Excellent.

I am trying to get them to remove me from here so I don't have to work my notice. No luck as yet, though.

I still say we need to create some paying consortium here and we can all get paid to post here nonstop.
