2 weeks notice!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous Saturday. I am writing from the elliptical at the gym from -10 degree Minnesota. Hope all is well. Have you ever given a 2 weeks notice, quitting from your employer? Was it in person, in writing or both? The only time I have ever quit a full time job I ATTEMPTED to set up a meeting with my manager but she guessed that i was putting my notice in over the phone. I did write a letter after that to the head honchos. Did I fail to mention I received a "contingent offer" for this position I was interviewing for? Omgomg. It is contingent based on a background check (in progress), a drug test (scheduled for Monday) and fingerprinting (not sure exactly what the purpose of that is). I am still waiting on the starting date too. Hurrsy! I know i am ready for a change of pace and also over 10k per year in a wage hike. At any rate, i am already anticipating quitting and putting in my notice although it wont be for several weeks. What has been your experience with giving your resignation notice?

One time when I gave my notice they would,t accept it as they thought I was upset about something. I was but I told them I had been planning it for awhile. I never should have left that job though it was probably the mistake of my life but hindsight is always 20/20. Well !maybe not the worst mistake but up there. I am sure yours will be fine though good luck!
You have to really have a strong mindset after you give your notice. Its too easy to just leave and not return, since you're already on your way out. I always give a written 2 weeks notice to the HR department. I usually told my immediate supervisor also, but I did it in private because I never liked others hearing about it while I was still there, they treat you differently then. Good luck with your testing!
