Take this Job and...

Here were some ideas for my resignation letter:

"I'm going to take my non-vital gay self on over to some people who will appreciate me rather than talk about me behind my back" - Manda

"dear everyone. stuff it. sincerely, scott" - Manda

"BeneSoft Programming fees after I'm gone: $250 / hour
Access Consultant fees to figure out what I did: $200 / hour
Cost to fly me across country to learn new system you're
now going to have to teach someone else: $1,900
Tuition you've paid for this past year: $ 8,000
Laughing as you realize my true value: Priceless" - Me

"At first I was trained
I was certified
Kept thinking I could never work
without you by my side
But I spent so many nights
thinking how you did me wrong
I grew strong
I learned how to carry on (Literally!)
and so I quit
from __________

I just walked in to find you here
with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed my stupid job
I should have written a better resume
If I had known for just one second
I would be quitting _________.
Go now go
I'm out the door
Just turn around now
'cause you're not working anymore

Weren't you the one who tried to tempt me with _____
You think I'd crumble
You think I'd give in and lie
Oh no, not I
I will resign
as long as I know how to code
I know I will stay in line
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my brains to give
and I'll resign

It took all the strength I had not to disappear
kept trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken career
and so I spent oh so many nights just feeling sorry for myself
I used to try
Now I hold my breath and Lie!

And now you see
Somebody new
I'm not that chained up little person
Still working alongside you
and so you felt like dropping in
and just expect me to email
now I'm saving all my knowledge
for someone who's paying me,
........more money!!!!! " - I-Resign.com

In the end, however, I settled on:

"Please accept this letter as my notice of resignation, effective _____.
This wasn't an easy decision, but after long hours of consideration, I have decided to accept a position with another company.
Sincere thanks and best wishes for the future," -Me
