I quit!

I faxed this message to Mike, our weasel of a district manager:

I am hereby tendering my resignation at 4pm today, or whenever TJ comes in. I do not feel comfortable working under TJ or you. Management has shown zero respect, and no communication skills. If your intention is to close the Paoli store, you are doing a bang-up job.

Normally, I would give two weeks notice. But TJ and Mike do not deserve it. Hell, I had been having bad dreams about work. That is unacceptable. The reason I had a job like Pizza Hut was so that I didn't have to take my work home with me. I grew up watching my father come home stressed out on a regular basis as a computer salesman. That seemed wrong to me. I was a little nervous when I talked to TJ, but I feel I made the right decision, for my own sanity.

In other news, I just watched the movie Saved! As a former Christian, I thought they nailed some stereotypes of the religious zealots. I liked it a lot, but I would not suggest that my parents watch it. And now, I am off to the Acme to buy food at 2:30 in the morning. No more free pizza. Hah.

I will enjoy my time off. I hope to watch the rest of season 3 of 24 with my dad.
