Well being I am self-employed doing what I love to do, I would simply use the funds to open more avenues of opportunity and work less. However in the past when I worked as a wage-slave, I would have bought the company and fired the boss. That is the really bad boss, and teach them a thing or two about karma. What goes around comes around.

    I have to say that I have never really given this topic much thought since I started working where I am now.  At the last job, I had so many different ways to quit that I couldn't decide what I wanted to do.

    With this boss, I have to say that I like the people and the job that I do here and the boss too.  I would have to think long and hard about how I wanted to leave.  Since I am a supervisor I also have to think of the morale of the rest of the crew on the shift.

    I guess I would come in to work and tell him straight off that I was quitting and that he would have to find a replacement for me.  With the budget cuts that the main office is making in all departments, I doubt that there will be offers to raise my pay or whatever to keep me from quitting.  Knowing the boss, he will find out immediately from my facial expression that something is going on.

    I would turn in the two week notice and continue to work like I always have.  Once the 2 weeks are up, bye bye is all I will have to say. When I leave that last day, I will be heading to the airport and off to a MUCH needed and deserved vacation with the family.

      Just prior to claiming the winning ticket, I would have a private chat with the owner of the company and ask him what he would do if he were in my shoes.

              I know jobs are scarce at times but if I had a bad boss who jumped and rode me I would not need the lottery to quit.

              The only notice that boss would get is a knuckle sandwich.

                My current manager is someone I've known for over 20 years, I used to help him when he was in the field and I was in corporate, needless to say I would call him and ask him whats up? And tell him I P'offd a client with some very strong language and I was turning in my resignation, then I would wait for a response.  Then I'd say "NOT!  I gotta take off some time, by the way how much do you owe on that house?......................"  I also would give two weeks. It is only reasonable to say good bye to everybody and tie up loose ends.  Something about burning bridges..
