Quit my Job
"Person's name".. I think it's time that you look for a new post production supervisor. I'm tired of getting reprimanded for things I "should" have known. This is my first gig with "Network I work for", I don't know these "rules" you keep throwing in my face. I am doing the best I can and if that is not good enough then by all means find a replacement because I won't put up with being your whipping boy whenever there is a money issue in post."
It felt good.. she and I have been butting heads for a few months and I have been close to my boiling point several time and to finally let off some steam was great.
I didn't want to quit, I love everyone else I work with but I'm too old and set in my ways to put up with continuous crap from people. Also if I quit I would not be able to collect unemployment but I didn't care.
Well thirty minutes later I got an email from the post producer (someone I work with hand in hand with in post) She had talked with the person I had an issue with and with the show runner and they really wanted me to stay, they said we would all have a meeting on Thursday and talk it out. I agreed to stay part loyalty to those two and part funding for my European Trip I hope to take next year. But I did say I won't put up with her crap anymore. One snide remark and I'm outta here.
So I go into work tomorrow, luckily she and I work in different buildings so we won't have to see each other until Thursday. I hope we can work things out I would like to finish this job in mid September. But I also am tired, emotionally drained and stressed out and have no problem quitting on a moments notice.
