I know how to work. I know how to get the job done. I know how to get along with others. I know how to show up with a smile every day and produce. I know how to contribute.
I also know how to quit. And you should too. Done correctly, you will be asked to stay and even be offered more money. Like me…..today. 🙂
It will also highlight their faulty management choices.
A good resignation lets them know you have limits. It lets them know they can’t just foist any dickhead from accounting on you as a manager because they have no career path for him.
It gives them a preview of what life will be like without your smiling, agreeable, flexible, hard working, team playing, ass.
But you gotta be good. You have to make yourself valuable. Every day. You gotta drink a little Kool-Aid, you gotta pitch in.
Sometimes, you have to take one for the Gipper, but it’s for the greater good.
You want them to smile and breath a sigh of relief when they see you every morning. On time.
You gotta play the game to get the payoff. And if you’re good, you’ll get one.
Or else it will be, “Don’t let the door hit ya, where the Good Lord split ya.” when you pull the plug.
Can’t have that, can we?
