I finally did it – I quit! Turned in the resignation this morning. Shocked the shit outta them all. Well, actually they’ve known about it for months. Some of them, at least. But the rest were freaking floored. You shoulda seen their faces!
As there wasn’t a policy in place for papal resignation, they merely accepted my form letter and added it to my personnel file. I gave them three weeks’ notice – more than fair considering my position – and we’ll have some time for the transition. I’ll also be right around the corner in my new retirement digs to help the new guy get settled. Of course, I’ll expect a small stipend for that assistance…
Retirement, here I come!
