Should Igive my notice now?

I'm moving to the mid-west in 3-4 weeks. For the past 3-5 months, my boss is rude to me, I ask questions and she gives me an attitude, treats me like I'm a moron. So, should I give my resignation notice? or just quit the day I move.

*I am not putting her down as a reference, and I've only been there 9-months*...And legally, she cannot say anything bad about me.

I'm thinking if I give my resignation notice, it'll give her an opportunity to treat me worse.

  • Although I know it's illeagal it has been known to happen that a previous employer tell a new employer things there not supposed to....but if I was in your situation I would just stick it to her. I don't even know if i'd be able to make it through the last few weeks.

  • I believe in never burning bridges, so I would give the standard two weeks notice. If she dislikes you that much, she may tell you to leave as soon as you turn in your notice anyway.

  • Careful - get another job before you quit. Things are tough out there - is it just you so is she rude to everyone she supervises?

  • you need to give your notice. It is the professional thing to do. If your boss is rude then kindle tell her you will be going home if she doesnt show some respect. If she continues to be rude then just go home. 2 wrongs dont make a right! You still need to do the right thing.

  • I would read the employee manual to find out how long in advance you are required to give your notice, so you do not lose any money for the time you already worked. If you just quit or wait until right before you move, you may not get paid for the days you already worked. Every job has a boss that sucks so just blow her off. You are leaving anyway. She probably could not care less what you do so I wouldn't waste my energy thinking about her or cutting my nose off to spite my face. Get your money, then leave.

  • QUIT!!! Doesn't sound like she is a very good boss!

  • The professional thing to do is give your 2week notice, no matter how difficult that is to do. Just try to grin and bear it for a while longer. Karma will get her eventually...It always does!

  • You should give your notice. Not only is it the perfessional thing to do, but you just up and quit with no notice, you're giving out the impression that you have a bad work ethic and only care about yourself. That may come back to haunt you later, you never know.
