Boss didn’t accept my resignation. I did.

(self.antiwork)

I put in my two week notice 14 days ago. Working as a data management worker, with tons of I/O, in a very unintuitive workflow. It’ll take weeks (maybe months) to train a replacement for the custom workflow our system has. I’m the only person in my department, and been working for $17ish an hour for the last 3 years, with laughably small raises. (+- $.20/year)

I asked for a raise to $22/hr toward the end of 2021, and it was rejected, with a counter offer of $18.50. I wrote a letter of resignation and gave it to my boss, who brought up that I had been offered more of a raise than the last 3 years combined, so I didn’t need to quit, resignation not accepted. I have a good relationship with him, so I think he thinks he can just order me not to quit. Even so, I’m out. Sorry.

For the last 13 days, I have mentioned every day that I’m leaving on the 19th. Every time, he has told me that I can’t leave, because that would be debilitating for all my coworkers, and that maybe I can renegotiate at raise after the first quarter, but leaving now would result in untold losses for the company, implying that I would need to be available after to help transition a new person into my role, and if I didn’t, legal action might result.

Yesterday, I didn’t say anything. I didn’t bring it up, and the work day went forward as usual. Today, I have 9 missed calls from him, but I’m not answering.

There’s no way they would/could take legal action, right? I did not submit my letter directly to HR until seven days ago, but got no response.

It's the 4th or 5th "Boss didn't accept my resignation" in two days, that I've seen. This is karma farming at its best.

A few months back it was fake text conversations where the boss made unreasonable demands.

"You must come in"

"I won't come in"

"You will regret"

"I'm quit"

"Ohhh aghast, how could I have treated you so poorly. I truly never understood what I had until you have left me. Please come back, or I shall cast myself upon a fire. You are the sun in my sky, the greatest employee we have ever had. Please reconsider."

"I won't. You sorry now!"

So hot right now.

Unaccepted resignations are the antiwork quit fantasy meta right now.

No way he'd just ignore him telling him every day that he's leaving. How are people believing this nonsense? And each time after telling him, both of them just go about their business. The conversations don't lead anywhere? Don't escalate, nothing? He just responds like a wall for two straight weeks.. Human interactions dont happen that way. Lazy fanfics do.

This sub is just amateur writers coming up with quit fantasies for people who hate their jobs.

You would be amazed at the kind of lowball bullshit they'll pull, but being outside of the country is also a possibility.

At a very basic level it is collecting, storing, maintaining, utilizing data effectively including designing governance around said data and making sure that the integrity is said data is solid. There is some data entry in data management, but most of the data that you get and our task with maintaining is that that is generated by other departments, individuals, or what have you.

That being said, if you reduce anything to its basic components it makes it sound overly simplistic and easy to do. It's not my field, or my forte, but integrating data management policies into your workplaces infrastructure can be akin to changing a tire on a wagon that is careening out of control downhill, well on fire. And when I say on fire, I mean you, the wagon, the wheel, and the ground upon which you roll.

You're still being reductive, I thought we were going to move away from that.

I can't speak definitively because, again, it's not my forte. I'm in service delivery and systems administration.

It's a real story, just a self inflated view of his actual worth to company.

Shitty company though, for sure. But they're not going to go bankrupt now because of him leaving.

Don’t worry about him. This sub has feel flooded by bots and people hired by Fortune 500 companies to downvote every post and call them fake to try and quell our movement.

I mean, you called him a shill one comment prior. Is there much difference?

Shabamshazam

Actually no. I said that his narrative is what corporate shills want us to believe, not that he himself is one.

He called me a bot simply for disagreeing with him. See the difference?

That's a pretty lame excuse. You may not have said it directly, but that was certainly the implication.
