Obviously depends on your office structure, etc, but I would say the standard is to have the discussion with your manager with the letter ready/in-hand



Good to know. I'm looking forward the conversation; I work for a complete mess of a person.

We have a LOT of people quit and it seems that the standard procedure is to talk face-to-face to whoever you report to, but then HR will request to have it in writing. I'm sure having it in writing is all your employer is looking for.

I'd say have the letter ready and then do it in person, with the letter in hand.

This is the equivalent of checking the fridge for food, being upset at having nothing appealing, and then opening it 10 minutes later to check again :lol:.

Speaking of TLS mobile, I don't know how you guys use the site on your phone. I have the iPhone 6 and still find the site difficult to use on a phone. The only time I really use my phone on TLS is if I get a PM.

I will often close my TLS tab, then start to type TLS into the address bar and have to catch myself and stop :oops:


Just bookmark TLS. That's what I did.

Although, it's kinda late in the game this cycle.

Because iPhone screens are impossibly tiny, that's why. even though the iPhone 6 is an improvement on the 5th generation iPhones, it's still only 4.7 inches. My phone currently is 5.5 inches, and feels smallish compared to the 5.9 I had before. The numbers don't sound very different but it's a noticeable difference.. especially when you watch videos. Kevin spacey really gets in your face when he's that big :lol:

I hope you have better luck than I did! I told my boss then the HR lady at around noon yesterday. At 12:30pm, as I was walking to the restroom, a lady whose name I do not know ran up to me to give me a hug and tell me how upset she was that I'm leaving. Oh. :roll:

I watch several vampire show on hulu and other shows that involve a lot of fighting and such. I often wonder if my office neighbor can hear it and what he thinks.

ughhhhh misery. he just needs to not talk for 2 weeks!! i don't have faith in him but it would have been so awkward to not say anything today during this deep conversation and then to drop it on him in a few weeks, so i went for it.


what do you care? I'm honestly glad I don't have to pretend to give a shit anymore to anyone around here

I've been laptop shopping online for most of today!

Almost ready to drop $$ on the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Ultrabook!

Trying to keep it under $1000 though :(
