My agent really could have started the call with "I have some good news and some bad news. Your job ends next Friday" and left it at that. I'm happier about work today than I've been in months. Funny, no? Now I redouble my efforts at finding a new job. Now I don't have to be sneaky about calling agencies at work. Now I don't have to explain why I'm looking for a job to the agencies I call. Plus all the stress I've felt here ends. Will I have "finding a job stress"? Yes, but I had that already. I'll have a little money stress, but I'm going to look into applying for unemployment and that should help a lot.
Them giving me a week and 2 days notice instead of the traditional 2 weeks is a good example of how poorly managed this place is and I won't be sorry to see the last of it.
Wish me luck finding something new!
