And then, well, then it wasn't the perfect job anymore. I was presented with a fantastic chance to work for a company that not only pays more, but offers a vast array of opportunity. When I was offered the job I remember hearing the Mary Tyler Moore theme song in my head. This is my chance professionally to do what I want to do.
On Monday, I turned in my notice and thanked the company for the opportunity and offered to do whatever I could to make a smooth transition. I went to lunch and came back to find my computer locked down.
Boss came in and told me that since I work with what could be considered confidential information, that it would be best if I left now. I would be paid for my two week notice and paid for my vacation, but I should leave now.
I think I was the straw that crushed the camel. So, while initially I was shocked since this wasn't the normal procedure, I'm not surprised.
I packed up, left my projects and desk in a bit of a shambles and I started my vacation.
A new chapter is being written...hopefully this is a long one.
