    Default Hot to hand in notice

    Hmmmm its been a long time since I initiated a contract end notice, in the last few years it seems most of my projects ended with huge programs getting canned and hundreds of contractors given notice …
    Anyway, people here are sort of nice, but my role is sort of sh*t not a specific area or project, people throw at me random stuff that no one knows how to do or can be bothered to do… no structure, which I can tolerate as we all know it happens in many places… however I got a better offer closer to home… so how should I break it up to them ??
    Any suggestions even comical ones welcomed.

    Sounds like no one's gonna be too fussed. Just go AWOL and don't turn in - the earth keeps turning, no sweat. Let them sort out their own dirty jobs. Camp out in the garden, phone switched off, till the new job commences.

    Stick your finger up the boss man's arse. Even if he likes it, he'll have to march you off the premises immediately.

    It's how MF does it, but i'm not sure that's much of a benchmark.
