I was going to give my two week notice but now I think I am just going to quit and leave Small Update

I was planning on giving my two week notice this morning when I go into work. I was checking my email and my boss sent everyone a really nasty email and now I am just going to quit and leave. 

I can not take 2 more weeks of her bs. I dont need her as a reference so I am not even going to bother with a two week notice 


ETA: I am not going to be looking for another job. I am done working for good. My DH has already officially retired and I am right there behind him

Update: I walked in and quit. She got really angry and told me to just go. One of my other coworkers also quit and a third is thinking about it. No one likes being treated like that

Why not give your notice and stick it out for 2 more weeks? Since they know you are leaving they will have less reason to demand things of you. Do the right thing.

If your boss is horrid, forward the email she sent to her boss. Have her spoken to and corrected. Handle it like an adult.

I did that once. I worked for a retail store while in college. The manager was horrible. On my first week there, she yelled and scolded me in the front of the store while customers were around us. My job at the time was simply to greet customers and inform them of the current sales. Anyway, she flipped out on me cause she wasn't meeting HER sales quota for the week. (Like it was my fault when I was only working 12 hrs a week.) So the next day when I was supposed to work, I walked in early to quit. She goes, "Oh you're early you don't work till later." To which I responded, "Oh no...I'm not coming back. I quit." And I never went back. :)

Just a whole bunch of call outs. She was telling one of my coworkers that she needed to bring an air freshener for when she goes to the bath room

She told me that I was a slob because I left my coffee mess in the break room (which is funny because I dont ever drink coffee)

She told another one of my coworkers that she smelled and should get prescription strength DO

She told one of my coworkers that his gf is annoying and she wishes he would find another plus 1 to all of the events

and on and on. None of those things should have been said in a mass email to everyone

Do not do it! I did and it is not easy finding a job after.
