So I quit the job!

After hours of putting it off, I finally phoned work and quit. I was going over the worst possible outcomes in my head and I was just getting super scared.. I don't even know why. I felt as though I was being unreasonable to them, but I had to keep telling myself that Uni is way more important.. So I wrote down a couple of reasons as to why I was leaving and phoned them, the conversation went a little like this:

Random worker in the club - "Hi, this is blah blah blah blah, how may I help?"
Me - "Hi, this is Chris Jones, may I speak to the manager please?"
Random worker - "Okay certainly.."
.....horrible suspense......
Manager - "Hi, how may I help you?"
Me - "Hi, it's Chris Jones, I'm new and I was just phoning to tell you that I don't think I'll be able to keep my job as well as go to Uni"..
....I'd done it, but what has she got to say? ...
Manager - "Oh, okay... So do you want to make it a weekend only thing?"
Me - "I'd like to finish completely please?"
Manager - "Okay..."
Me - "Okay?"
*Hangs up*
*Fist pump*

So yeah after that phone call I felt like a weight had been lifted.. It may sound stupid to some of you but I was worrying about that phone call all night, it was horrible..

Tonight I am going to watch The Wombats, for those for you that haven't heard of them, here's a song.

Have a nice day all.


  1. Good for you, I think she handled it kind of okay, at first trying to hit a compromise, just putting the phone down was kinda a dick move, but at least she didn't try to convince you to stay. Well done for being able to do it too.

  2. hahahaha everything went better than expected.jpg
    You did the right thing!

  3. Glad to hear it worked out, good luck. Enjoy the Wombats as well tonight, they're a great bad. Love the link you posted.

  4. Hahaha, fitting song for your day. Good job on mustering the courage and actually doing something about it, which not many people do about their problems..

  5. I guess I have to do the same...

  6. If you think about it to much, you just get more scared but it sounds like it wasnt that hard after all.

  7. Good for you, man !
    More time to work towards your dreams now :P

    def +follow
    (much love from if you're interested !)

  8. I worry about stuff like you do too! Its never as bad as I think it will be but its good to always be prepared!

  9. well if it's not what you wanted, point in staying!

  10. Quitting a job is that easy? I don't work so I wouldn't know.

  11. The manager will now cry him/herself to sleep for losing an employee, good job man...
    jk lol

  12. Not even weekends? Hm, well, it's your call in the end.

  13. thinking about bad outcomes may waver you conviction but it also has the reward of "that wasnt so bad..." which is always good

  14. great! go concentrate on your studies now
