So Qwest finally extracted their head from their ass and has said yes to hiring Joel. They're figuring out final details like drug test and start date. The closing on the loan got postponed till tomorrow because US Bank is either just that absurdly unorganized or that abusurdly obnoxious and stalling. But at least it's about to be done.

I'm finally in a place where I can give notice to my boss. He's sick, apparently, and I don't know when he's going to be in for sure. He said he was going to try to come in today. If he doesn't I'll leave him voice mail on the subject tonight when I leave. I wrote up a letter with reasons, etc, last night. It was a relief to have the loan and Joel's job resolved and not feel like I'm being a horrible person for not being able to tell my boss that I'm quitting with enough warning that he hasn't bought his own plane tickets for November.

It's also a relief to be able to get out of the job that's no longer rewarding and out from under a frustrating boss. I don't know if he's going to blow a head gasket or pretend he's okay with things, but whatever, it's almost over.

This is a good thing since he's no longer using the payroll company due to their fee increase and I don't trust him with that.
