I just told my boss I have no definite plans for law school, which is obviously a lie. I feel bad because he's actually good, my job just sucks. I would tell him earlier, but my leave gets taken out of my final paycheck. I'm going to use three weeks of leave, so if I give two weeks notice, they can't take more than that from me.

Yeah I guess. But it isn't a great policy. Plus my job isn't all that prestigious or important. People give two weeks notice all the time, so its no big deal.

I think this is fairly standard, really. Some jobs will pay you for banked leave, but if they don't you'd have to be kinda crazy not to use it up.

+1. Not conniving. I don't know if I would have said the bolded, but i wouldn't say anything if I were in a position where it may bite me in the ass. The job I had before my current gig, I never would have mentioned it. You definitely don't have to feel bad about the standard two weeks.

I'm practically giddy whenever a computer program stops working because it gives me a legitimate excuse to not do shit.

+1 I'm considering "accidentally" locking myself out of my program so I can call IT and slack while they fix it

Yeah I only aspire to not leave the TLS tab open and instead switch it to something more innocuous looking when I get up to get coffee. But even that is a high bar some days.

This is my problem and people just decide to walk behind my desk (that backs up to a wall) all the time these days! So I've resorted to the minimizing the window to the bottom corner and TLSing in a 3x3 window. Wondering if that makes things more obvious now that I'm typing it out....

Guys I don't have a single work related tab or program open. I am only working in the sense that I'm physically present in the office. Get on my level.

FYI by "something more innocuous looking" I just mean my personal email instead of TLS/FB

My bosses were really happy that I gave them ample departure notice and am sticking around to make the transition for my clients smoother, as opposed to some coworkers who recently peaced out with little warning, so I'm still getting my half-year bonus despite leaving two weeks before the half-year date.

It pays to be a conscientious employee, folks.

I get so pissed when my boss does this to me. But think of it as excellent practice, helping you to hone your verbal bullshitting skills.
