    sent the e-mail... feel like quite a bitch at the moment (mostly paranoia about future references on job applications, since I know that my last job won't give me a good one since I quit at the last moment for this job, which the boss knew when she hired me)

    *sigh*

    Dear ___,

    I just got a call today telling me that I'm hired for a job that I had applied for and interviewed several months ago. The pay and benefits are both nice, but the job starts tommorrow. I hate to tell you at such a late notice, as I'd enjoy staying with ___ and working an occasional Sunday, but I don't really see another option, as I couldn't delay the training.

    I'm sorry again, I hope that you understand that with the cutbacks in hours for the winter that I need to be able to earn enough to pay my rent and bills I am sort of cornered here. I feel bad about springing this on you at such a short notice and hope that you understand.

    Thank you,
    whatever

    I think you did a great job with this - it is sort of an awkward situation, and you're probably not making any friends with the old place, but it's an eminently reasonable and honest reason for leaving quickly... especially if they keep sending you home early without getting enough hours to maintain your pay.

    I hope things go well at the new job tomorrow

    Job references... it's like the whole system is contrived to discourage movement, isn't it? I mean, the whole idea of relying on previous employers to evaluate worth seems... eh.

    Okay.

    I think I did the right thing by severing ties sooner than later, and it had to happen, but damn, I kinna feel like a rat.

    Especially since I have quite a few friends there

    well, a good very dirty martini should take care of things!

    Thanks everyone

    wow...I have no idea.at least it worked out for you.

    I'm also suprised to find out that most people don't have a giant calendar floating around in their head to consult when scheduling things.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so
