Sad and Disheartend Over Work

I'm upset because my workplace told me today was going to be my last day. I reminded them that my notice was until October 25th. He said it was better for the company because my head wasn't in the business anymore. I told him that wasn't true and that I wanted to work until the end. He said he was doing me a favour. I told him I didn't expect to be treated differently than any other employee and that I was still going to be diligent up until my last shift.

I guess I am just venting. They would rather pay me to stay at home. I feel as if I have gotten fired. I've scheduled anything I have left to do around my remaining shifts, so I have nothing to do but stew. I wanted to work and have things be business as usual so I didn't have time to go nuts thinking about my upcoming move. I've already planned family outings and that. :(

Be a tourist in your own city. You might not come back to see all of the cool stuff there for awhile, so appreciate it while you can!

England.gif England!

And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times

It's you, it's you, You make me sing.

You're every line, you're every word, you're everything.

I understand how you feel but now you have more time to do things before you leave. Visit with people. Pack and send stuff. If you're being paid anyway he really is doing you a favour.

I understand how they might feel that you leaving is best. The field I'm in they prefer you to leave immediately and not work out your notice because they worry about mistakes, sabotage (accidental or on purpose) and how you'd be less likely to keep your cool for annoying clients and thus hurt the organisations reputation. Not that I'm accusing you of such, but I can understand it.

Plus, and most likely, they're jealous as hell and wanted to get some control back :P

I worked up until 5 days before I was due to leave and really regretted that decision. I wish I had finished 2 weeks before as the move is huge and I did not get to spend the time I wanted with friends and family due to last minute problems. Enjoy the time.

Don't take it personally. It's standard operating procedure for many employers and has nothing whatsoever to do with performance or whether or not they like you. :)

Enjoy your paid vacation!! Like AmyK says.... be a tourist! Eat stuff you're not going to get for a very long time. Go for a walk in your favourite park and soak it up. Imagine you are never coming back again because that's how it's going to feel when you get here. :lol:

The last company I was with denied me a promotion (it's freelance contract work in the TV industry, so it wasn't a long-term thing - the contract is actually done even before my interview date) because my boss said that my "focus is on my wedding and moving to Florida" ... this was back in May. My interview date is in DECEMBER. I ended up quitting that job, reporting them to the labour board, and finding a job with the same title that I would have had if I got the promotion.

Just wanted to say that I empathize with your situation. Use the paid time off to your advantage :) Start working on wedding plans, and packing up your things! I'm probably going to be done with this job in early November, and I can't wait to have the time off to spend with my family and friends before my interview and POE :)

It's very upsetting to be a vital part of a company and then one day you're not. That said, I think your boss has given you a very nice gift. Like someone else said, there' s so much to do, both physically and emotionally. Much better to have time to say good byes than to fill your time so you don't have to feel what's going on. it's a bit life change. There are a lot of good-byes and it can be hard. Hang in there. It's just something you need to go through to get to the other side.
