Apparently I am no longer employed because I gave my two weeks notice. I was trying to find a more accommodating (since I'm going back to college) or at least slightly better paying job (preferably with benefits) and had put an application in at a call center. So, I did what I've always thought you're supposed to do if you think you will be leaving your current employer: put my notice in. The next day, I was completely removed from the schedule. Everyone has told me that my boss (who has mysteriously never been present when I've stopped by to talk to her) said that I wouldn't have worked those two weeks anyway, even though I discussed this with her months ago. Apparently they wanted rid of me since I didn't take crap from people who tried to start rumors and gossip and I was always honest and upfront. I guess that's a bad thing when you work somewhere with maximum jr. high drama all the time, though.
Anyone else been here?

For future reference never mention your looking for a job or that you plan to leave in 2 weeks. What you do is after the new employer extends offer of employment you let them know you would like to give 2 weeks notice. They may say they need you in a week or that 2 weeks is fine. After your definitely going to get the job then put in your 2 weeks notice or 1 if that is what the new employer wants. Many stop scheduling or terminate right away because many times employees stop caring when they know they are leaving. So some don't want to waste the time. Good luck with your job search.
