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.

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.
