I resigned yesterday after being berated for three-hole-punches being out of line in a binder I put together on Friday. The partner proceeded to explain what a waste of time I was and how quickly he could find a high school graduate who could do better and that this was “intolerable.” He said that he and the partners would make a decision about the repercussions of my actions later… wait? over a three-hole-punch issue with a binder? Yes.
Ok. That was it for me. Many of you know how I feel I’ve been treated at this job and my overall feelings about working there… There was no point in staying on longer.
The Final Conversation: I told him that I would like to talk to him and he basically said that if I didn’t have a message for him, it was unimportant and would have to wait, as he pushed past me and out of his office into the hallway. I had wanted to wait to say things in private, but he was rude, so what did it matter? I simply said, “I’ll make the decision easy for you: I’m resigning.” He turned, continued walking, and said over his sholder, “That does make it easy.” I gathered my things and left. What can I say: he was true to character. No handshake. No eye contact. No well-wishes. I’m not worth any of that in his eyes–never was.
As I walked out the doors of the building, I really felt like I was just shaking the dust from my sandals and leaving a black-hearted place that does not have ears to hear or eyes to see.
I’m glad to be gone. However, I will miss the others–the other support staff and associates. I wish them all the best. I also hope that the partner’s change or are soon found out for who and what they truly are.
On a happier note: I think I’ve found something else–much bigger and better. Nothing’s set in stone yet, so I can’t say much, except that my work environment will be the complete opposite and I will actually enjoy going to work.
Lend me your thoughts and wisdom, I love you so much–what do you think? The only part I’m having trouble with is the fact that I did not wake up yesterday and plan on making this financial decision. Pray for rest and peace in knowing that God will provide and we made the right decision. Thanks
ps. AS I WAS WALKING OUT OF THE BUILDING I SAW SANDRA BULLOCK FILMING HER NEW MOVIE… I COULD’VE REACHED OUT AND TOUCHED HER, EXCEPT FOR HER BODY GUARD! SHE IS BEAUTIFUL AND IT WAS AMAZING!!!
Well, I’m glad you’re out of that bad situation… and I’ll pray for your future plans. Much love to you friend.
Lucy, sorry to hear that the job you were so excited about only a few months ago turned into such a disappointment. But I’m proud of you for leaving on your own terms. Better things are on the way, girl. Hang in there.

Lucy, you are amazing! I think about you often and today in particular. I am glad that you are able to move forward with your life. You deserve something wonderful and I know that the Lord will provide. I resigned from teaching so I can stay home and be a Momma. God bless you my dear – Jordan
