No More Corporate Whore

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

Enough. No more. Three months ago I handed in my resignation and as per the terms of my contract have been working my notice period ever since. Tomorrow is my last day in corporate sh!tville. :notworthy:

No more 15 hour days. No more commuting crap. It stops tomorrow. :x

I have no other job lined up. I have financial debts and committments the size of most small African countries but I don’t care. I’m ever the optimist. Something will turn up. :wink:

The important thing is I’m going to be happy. :P

I’ve been told by various parties that I’m either being incredibly stupid or incredibly brave? Time will tell. :roll:

But I just refuse to line some other money grabbing bastards pocket whilst I continue on this treadmill and drive myself into an early grave. I just refuse to accept that this is my working life for the next 22 years. :urff:

Personal circumstances have meant my life has seen a sea change in the past few months and now I understand there is a life out there. That’s what I’m going to find. And I really can’t wait. :D

I propose to sleep for a week. Then I’m gonna take control of my life for the first time in my life. :von:

It’s gonna be fab. 8)

Good on you Johnny. I jacked in a stressful job years ago and have never regretted it. I can't say I ever found my niche or had a successful career since but I'm still a hell of a lot happier than I was doing a job I hated.

Congratulations, Johnny! It takes a lot of guts to take a step like this, but I think it is the only way to move forward, decide what you want and to let life take a more satisfying direction.


Take care, Eva.
Celebrations done, more to come, hopefully.

Meanwhile: I'm still confused but on a higher level... :-)

Don't listen to the naysayers. They probably just wish they had the guts to do the same. I'm a firm believer that taking a risk pays off more often than not, if you go about it with a positive attitude. Which you obviously are.

The world's your oyster, mate. Very best of luck! :notworthy: :D

Great! Congrats. And without commuting, I hope, from now on you'll be up for a chat at a more civilized time. :P
