Anyone having a hard time quitting their job?

Man, I had the hardest time telling my boss that I'm moving on. It took me forever in her office to tell her that I got another job elsewhere. Then we talked for about 30 minutes afterwards about where I'm going to be, and where she will be in the near future. She's cool as , and told me that if things don't work out, then give her a call. Hehe. Anyone else have such difficulties?

You're not the only one, Kinny When I quit my old job @ the hotel I worked at throughout college, I had a lump in my throat and I think my boss did too but afterall, I did work there for 7 years.

In the end, it's a move for the better and on good terms.

yep...when I quit driving I had a hard time...my boss treated me really well and I have a job with him when ever I want. Take the leap and have solice that if the change doesn't work out you have something to fall back on.

That's the problem. I've been treated well. Otherwise, I would have no problem. A better opportunity just came along, and I grabbed it.

my current job will be hard to leave when the time comes. I don't think the office can operate without me.

i know it will happen because i can make more money elsewhere.

You sound like the kind of employee any employer would love to have, and I won't be at all surprised if you yourself could become the Bossman in your future. I can see that, just based on your attitude and the attitude of those you work for.

Yeah, I had a hard time quitting my job. I have been trying to quit my job for years but what will I do or will I make it with the new jobs? Will I be happy? After 20 yrs things are getting dulled but starting over sucks.

I've been working for the same people for 8 years now. During that time I have worked for two corporations and been self employed. All for the same owner and managers lol. It will be hard when my time comes.

My wife and I are relocating, and her job will be too far of a commute and just had to put her notice in. Small firm of about 10 employees. I feel bad for her. Both owners teared up. Not good for my wife as she wears her emotions on her sleeve anyways. Then she had to tell the daycare that has been watching my daughter and both the morning and evening teachers started crying. I think it is a lot easier to quit working for major corporations because you are just a number. The small guy is hard, especially when you become part of the family.

Shoot, I went in and told them that I was leaving for more money and I ended up getting an additional 30K added to my salary within 5 minutes. As with all jobs, I was looking for a job when I found this one so it cannot be all that bad.
