So I accidentally let slip to my co-worker today that I am planning to quit my job before the end of the year...It was awkward because the first thing she said is that I should tell our boss so that she can hire someone else to replace me. Which is true, and I was/am going to give her plenty of warning (its the right thing to do), but now there is some tension between me and my coworker I think. She's super nice, and she's been at this job a lot longer than I have, so I think she has a tank full of loyalty that I really don't. And once someone knows that you're not in it for the long haul, they pull away right? I'm afraid that's going to happen, which is a shame since we have a good rapport.
I hate quitting jobs. When I quit my job in NYC (when I decided to try to get in to med school), the boss was pissed. "You said you were going to stay for x length of time! You can't just quit now! Blah blah blah!" But you know what? I hated that job, so it wasn't so hard to quit. I like my current job, but for a multitude of damn good reasons, I'm not going to do it forever, or even past the end of the year.
Ugh. Unpleasant business.
