Good for you. It isn't like they can really get angry since you did give them the standard two weeks notice and you're leaving for a good reason.

It's always about the post before yours.

i tend to look in the subject but apparently that doesn't apply to this thread anymore

it's about burning bridges :cry:

Bridges should always be burned. It's a sign of weakness to want the option to go back. Burn the offices also while your at it, and the cars in the car park, and anything else you can think of.

And if you don't want to do it yourself, Venom can be hired for the bargain price of a few beers.

I bet he would even pay for it

Colon

He'd even let a bridge to be build just so he gets to burn it.

i'm sucking the fun out of this thread..i have a serious question.

I specifically requested in my letter of resignation that they did not tell the staff and especially not my ex's mother. She's a stalker for the most part. I requested complete confidentiality. A day later they came back and said they HAD to tell her because they might need to see if there were any of the girls who worked in her department that could be promoted. I knew damn well there weren't any of them that were qualified to get promoted. but they insisted because they said they didn't have any options. So they told her despite my wishes.

As I knew would happen, there weren't any girls to be promoted. Then today i saw them interviewing the guy i replaced..whom they had to have been in contact with beforehand...before they ever told my ex's mom.

What rights do I have in this? I'm angry and I feel betrayed.

You were betrayed but at the end of the day it is small potatos. Screw them and forget about it.

I'd be surprised if you had any rights in it. Keeping it quiet was a request on your part, not something signed up to as some form of official secret.

Drink more beer and console yourself that you are getting out of there.

that seems awefully formal. What kind of job did you have? Seems like an office job.

I basically said I'm leaving. In one case I only gave 1 week's notice.

In another case I quit over the telephone with no notice. I had already turned in all my work stuff in my mail box. I had no desire to see my bosses. Yeah, I'm a pussy. I couldn't confront them in person to quit. the only time I returned was to pick up my last paycheck. but even then, I didn't have to see my bosses, I just went to human resources to get my check.

It won't help your situation but it will make a funny story.
