I was so close!
I filled it out and brought it in. I sat down across from my manager and pulled it out. Then she stopped me.
Seriously. She said, “I can make this work!” and proceeded to show me the many, many ways I can design my own schedule, work as little as two days a month and keep my discount. I didn’t care. Then she said, “I don’t want to lose you.”
Aaaaaaah, why am I such a people-pleaser? Why do I cave when I’m complimented? I agreed.
Since I only half quit, I half celebrated with a glass of rosé. Half red, half white.
I’m half-happy. Also, half-sad.
I’m gonna go eat half a cake now.
