#WeekendCoffeeShare: Stuck at Quitting

Good Saturday morning and thank you for joining me for this lovely chat. What would you like to drink? I tend to stick to tea these days. It’s healthy and helps with my weight loss.

If you were having coffee and I was having tea, I would tell you I quit my job yesterday. Yep, the same job that’s been causing me misery ever since Mr. COO came to the office in June. Unfortunately, Mr. CEO wouldn’t let me.

My reason for quitting was I have to go to China to take care of some family stuff. It’s a true and legitimate reason. After all, I will be gone a few weeks and there won’t be anyone in the office to do my accounting stuff.

Mr. CEO asked, “Is it the company? Are you happy? Or do you have a better opportunity?” I now wish I had more guts to tell him how I really feel instead of giving him the pathetic, “It’s not you, it’s me,” excuse.

So where does that leave me?


Does that mean I can go to China (which I’ve already purchase an airplane ticket), then I would be back to work like nothing has happened? So much for a wishful new beginning.

I’m stuck, like that scene in that TV show I can’t remember where the guy wanted to break up with his girlfriend but she wouldn’t let him. That guy is me. Frustrated and confused.


As of yesterday, I’ve been put in charge of training Miss HR to do my work while I’m gone. Miss HR has proved she will be difficult to train because at any second, someone will holler her name, wanting something.


I guess I’ll try my best to teach her all the basic.

If you were having coffee and I was having tea, I would tell you I didn’t overeat this Christmas. Whew! I controlled my eating by logging every gram of food I put into my mouth. I even brought my scale to my mom’s friend’s apartment where we had our Christmas hot pot. I could sense my mom’s disapproval of my ridicule from across the room the entire time but whatever.

If you were having coffee and I was having tea, I would wish you a happy and successful 2018 and thank you for joining me. I hope we both can be here again next weekend which is the first weekend of 2018. Until then, Happy New Year!!! πŸŽˆπŸŽ‰πŸŽ†πŸŽ‡πŸŽŠβœ¨

  1. So you’ll be back to the same job upon returning from China? I know the feeling you described, all too well. Hopefully being called home also means they’ll be new opportunity for you, somehow, somewhere. I’ll be sending good thoughts that it all works out to your favor! Have a safe and Happy New Year!
