I quit!!! (in General)

TheHatchetman December 30 2006 2:51 PM EST

Or maybe i was fired... Not CB, im still going to be playing. I went on vacation without informing my boss. I called Friday to let her know I was back in town. She said to show up at 9:00am today, or not to bother coming in... I was there at 1130 :-). So I'm not sure if i quit my job or was fired. Either way, I have to go to that hellhole only one more time, Friday, to pick up my check. :-D

Have fun not having any money... but go you!!


And here I was all ready to get you to stay with CB...

Oh well, anyone else quitting?

TheHatchetman December 30 2006 2:57 PM EST

I already have interviews with 3 jobs pending...

BootyGod December 30 2006 3:00 PM EST

I hope it works out for you!

That's an irresponsible thing to do. At least you should inform her while you were on vacation, so she wouldn't wonder why you did not go to work.

I usually fire my staff when they do that to me lol really leaves everyone else out to dry.

Anyways, good luck in future endeavors :D

"I went on vacation without informing my boss."

Seems to me your proud about that statement. Very poor choice if you really are.

When you fail to let people know your going on vacation, you leave the rest of the business short handed, and impose on the others you used to work with.

Then, you show up late when it seemed your boss was giving you another chance.

I hope you learn from this huge mistake for your future endeavors, because if you do not, you will be flipping burgers for the rest of your life.

It seems like a bad choice and it's not what I would do, but
there's history behind this. See his previous post:
I hate my job
I guess you could call it a minor revenge.

I hope the 3 interviews you have go well.

What will you reply when they ask why you left your last post/job?

I take it they will ask for a reference from your last employer also?

Good luck....

Employers cannot by law give a bad reference. The least they can give is the dates you worked with them. Some companies only do that, for other reasons, so only getting that sort of reference isn't an instant bad thing. ;)

QBRanger December 30 2006 4:58 PM EST


When someone in my business leaves on bad terms, the reference we give is basically "so and so worked for us from xxx to yyyy".

It is very easy to read between the lines in such a reference. It is not a bad one, but it is as much as what is not said that matters.

horseguy001 December 30 2006 5:02 PM EST

Yeah, we can't say anything bad by law, but the questions are worded in a way that allow us to get all the information we need.

A quick example:

Tell me about a time when so and so put forth an exceptional effort at work.

I can't think of a time when that happened.

Not a great example, but that kind of thing tells you all you need to know :D

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] December 30 2006 7:21 PM EST

Ranger, er PM. ;) Some big businesses over here only give those types of references. I think it's HR reasons.

You can't just assume that getting a reference like that means a bad employee.
