I did...

Well, it's official.  I have the letter drafted... Scott has been informed...

I am parting ways with Sears.  I pondered a heck of a lot.  I asked a lot of people for advice.  My parents were the only people I could reach [not saying they were my last choice] and they gave me the advice I expected.  I must say I think I really took it.  My dad's line of "a bird in the hand..." I'll admit, I didnt' follow [obviously], but the 'act, don't react' and 'pray about it' I took to heart.


I had to take a few minutes before Mandy and I went to a social event to attend and just clear my head.  All day I had that jumpy feeling of anxiousness.  I paused... prayed for a feeling.  Mandy suggested I talk to Greg when we saw him inside and see what thought.  A few more minutes passed and we went inside.  Some pleasantries occurred and I slipped the "i think I'm quitting Sears" line to Greg and all he did was put his hand out for a high five [actually he put his fist out so ... you know, touch knuckles.  Not sure what you call it!]  And then I felt some bit of weight come off.  I figured out that it would be right for me to quit.


I thought some more to be sure.  Made me a bit of the anti-socialite at the party but it's ok.  I eventually went out to the car, called Scott and told him I would be quitting.  I asked him if he needed me to finish my last few shifts [2 for the 2 weeks] and he said "sure."  He was neither elated, nor upset.  Not even the least bit shocked.


Maybe tomorrow I'll post my resignation letter.  Something for all posterity!
