22. Aw we knew you were mentally composing

The World's Rudest Resignation Letter (TM) and so did they, apparently.

Of course, any reasonably efficient worker who periodically cleans out his/her in box can certainly take on a few more tasks, right? How on earth did you amass the gall to object to that? You mean s/he's going to QUIT? Oh, no!
And if you do quit, it gets funny fast. First there's the blame :I can't find such and such and we need it NOW" "Look in my email inbox, everything since ,my last day is now all yours." "But there's 80 pieces of stuff in there!" "Can't help you, I don't work there any more." That is soon followed by the begging to come in at a consultant's pay, what do you mean you need it in advance?

Yes, the management overreach boogie is a fun dance if you've ever done it. It looks like one of them managed to dimly realize tha's just what was about to happen and made the rest of them reconsider. I imagine screaming and threats were involved.

Just realize this is likely to happen again some time. so keep that rude resignation letter ready to type out. Know your worth, put on your dancing shoes, and have fun!
