I received word on my way back to my office from lunch on Friday that I passed the background check. I was very apprehensive about putting in my notice at work. I had been there for 4 1/2 years. I put my notice in Friday afternoon and it went okay. My boss was gracious. I thought that he was going to be a jerk but he wasn't. He even told me that if things didn't work out at my new job, I would be welcome back. I was done immediately and collected my personal belongings.
I feel so much relief that I'm not going back to a job that I've been miserable at for about a year. I'm counting my blessings.
Totally unrelated but one thing that I do to feel better about myself is watch Cops. I have it better than the people getting arrested for burglary, drugs, prostitution, etc.
