Jenn (Hey-its)

Quitting for real?  Do you have anything lined up or are you just completely fed up?

    Quitting for real.  I sent out a bunch of resumes last night and I've had my resume posted on Monster for a while but not really aggressively looking. But I've had enough today.  Working with family is utterly impossible and I honestly cannot take it anymore.  If my Grandfather wasn't my boss, I would really enjoy my job but I just can't deal with him.

    Thank you! I do find comfort in knowing that I'm the only family member that he hasn't fired..... yet. haha.  He's fired his son and daughter (my uncle and mom), his brother, my dad and my brother.

    I'm sorry it's so stressful--I do get what you're saying though.  We run a program on Family Businesses and you would be in good company hearing all the things I hear from the various family members.  The program is good because we force them to sit down and work out issues for the good of the business.  But usually the week starts out with everyone being afraid to tell the patriarch/matriarch what they are feeling/thinking.Good luck on the job leads and many vibes to finding something soon!

    Thanks everyone! Danielle - I'll probably shoot you an email tonight/tomorrow - thank you! I plan on turning in my 2 weeks notice by Thursday.  But if I know my Grandfather, he won't let me work the 2 weeks. He'll probably let me finish up Friday and then I'll be done.  And DH is 100% behind me on this - which feels so nice!!  So he's currently at home searching monster.com right now for me :)

    I hear you on this one!  FI quit his job about 3 weeks ago because it was just too stressful.  It just isn't worth it if it's causing you that much stress, and I'm sure you'll find something else soon! He hasn't found anything else yet, but he's into antiques and has been buying and selling them and making some money to fill in the time.  I guess if there's something like that you can do in the meantime, go for it! I'm glad your DH is being supportive, that's the most important thing:-)  Good luck on your job search!
