I am not in the pub yet, might pop in to get a cheeky GuinnessHello Burt. Good afternoon!
Only just seen this thread. By reading it I can only conclude that you have moved on from thinking about it, and are now planning your exit.
With it being Saturday you are hopefully in a pub somewhere relaxing and enjoying a pint.
If you have made the decision to leave, is there any point in making yourself miserable by continuing to go in? If you are not enjoying it, do not put yourself through it. It is admirable that you are being responsible, acknowledging that you will be monitoring the systems in your boss' absence, and delaying doing anything with this in mind.
That said, you need to look after yourself. Get back to doing the things that you enjoy - the things that make you happy.
If you were to give notice and hand in a fit note, they might cancel your boss' annual leave How's that for a parting gift?
PS. I still think the 6 week notice period is abhorrent considering you have been there for such a short period of time.
My plan is to get through the next two weeks at work, and then hand my notice in after xmas to HR. All my managers will be on xmas break.
Yes I do miss my freedom. I miss going to the day centre for men's group and board games group. I miss doing country walks. I just miss being relaxed, and working on my mental health. I would like to join an art class. I have proved to myself that I can wake up early everyday. Maybe I can do a morning walk.
I did chat about my job situation to my GP and he understood.
LOL you are funny. Yes I have imaginations of my boss being in a rage when he finds out I have quit. IDK if he is staying at home on his holiday or going away. He does have a laptop so theoretically he can log in remotely.
