Default two week notice or burn the bridge.

Im quitting my job, I haven't told anyone yet but the stress is too much anymore. I only have 2 years until I retire so Im going to take a no brainer job for the last couple years.
after that its just fishing and ****ing

I have always given the two week notice because everyone knows everyone in my line of work.

This time its different , doesn't really matter because I ain't going back'

should I do the standard bail out gracefully or do a giant bomb fire and jump into it.

Yea what’s the point of burning the bridge? If they were cool they’d just pay you the 2 anyway

I did same during covid. Im 13 or so from retirement so contemplating next venture. But yeah, i had had it with management of my company and just never went back. Fortunately have lived well within my means so have reserve to take my time and figure sumn out. I think 2 weeks notice depends on your relationship with managemebt and clients etc.

I understand , money isn't an issue, I just came back from 3 months off from shoulder surgery and my mental health is so much better. I just love the idea of going to the next meeting and cracking open a bottle of Jack at the table

When I said give two weeks, I didn’t mean give 100%. I’d give the two weeks but still crack the bottle in the meeting. Let them decide if that’s acceptable.

If they were going to get rid of you, you wouldn't be getting a two week notice.

I did 12 years there, never had a issue. then we got bought out. stress had gotten so bad my good old friend " PTSD " from the military was starting to act up. I emailed my upper management that I had ptsd and was going to get help to sleep. 2 weeks later they put me on a personal improvement plan , threaten to terminate me.

I told HR I was doing fine until I sent a letter saying I was going to seek help. they just sat there with their mouth open.

so no real love loss

you have already proved they do not need you by being off for 3 months, so it does not matter

Were those 3 months time paid off?

Re entry to work is a mudda fk* whether it is 3 days off or 3 months off. My gut says though if those were paid months off for the surgery I'd feel more compelled to give them the 2 wks notice.

Two weeks might be difficult to handle but 30 years is more difficult. I doubt you will regret giving them 10 days , but you might regret not.
