So, I'm putting in my two weeks' notice tomorrow.

The official reason is because the job is not a good fit for me.

The unofficial reason is because I'm not a good fit for this job, either. Lynn doesn't need to know that part. But I'm cutting my losses and getting out of there before I get fired.

Today I looked in my file again (this is a good thing in the long run, but I still feel nosy, and I probably kind of am) and found three more notes about various things, all sounding like I'm incompetent, lazy, and all sorts of other wonderful things. Things that are mostly not true. Some of them are kind of true, but I won't go into it. I just decided that losing 20 pounds in less than a month, all stress-related, all because I am trying as hard as I can and still am not being as perfect as Lynn wants me to be, is not fair to myself. I feel like Lynn has been undermining all my efforts to make this work, though I don't think she realizes she's doing it. There's a lot of stuff to this that I'm not mentioning because I don't really want to rehash it and rehash it. But tomorrow I'm putting my notice in to the owner (Lynn is on vacation) and then I'll start trying to find someplace where I'll fit better.

Good luck!

I'm really proud of you for knowing that you need to leave and taking care of yourself! Yay Meg!!! You will find the right job for you, I'm sure.

Also, don't you think it's telling that Lynn drove off the first person she hired and now she's driving you off too? She must be really bad at her job if she can't keep staff!

Good move. I hope you find something that works better soon. I'm still debating with mine.
