    STILL "trying" to quit my job...

    So I posted awhile ago that I was quitting my job... and so far... that hasn't happened and I'm /super/ annoyed. I called, got voice mail, so sent an email instead two weeks ago that said I wouldn't be able to make it this coming Monday (grad events, etc.) and got... no response, called again, got voice mail, left a message... no response. At work if I get a chance to see my boss she's always zipping past to get something else done or giving very intense lessons.

    Two weeks ago I emailed a 'formal' resignation- which I know isn't usually done over email, but I was hired over email, everything we've ever communicated outside the barn was over email, it's very informal. I also called her and left ANOTHER voice mail letting her know I was quitting (with valid reasons why, etc).

    One of the reasons I was quitting was because I'm just not capable of handling one of her younger horses to the point where I'm afraid of bringing him in... she nicely sent one of her lesson students out to help me bring the babies in ("herdbound" issues, he's perfect if he's following his buddy in) but on Wednesday I had no help and the little darling struck out and got me in the back of the leg, not serious but I really don't want to go back like... I really just don't, I don't feel safe.

    BUT I haven't heard back from her at all and I don't know what to do. I called again last night, left yet another voice mail (apparently she never answers her phone, or maybe she's ignoring my calls, haha, but that's probably paranoia right there ) and another email (today) reminding her I wouldn't be in next week and nothing so far... I'm so stuck! I'm paid up completely except for one day and honestly... I don't care if I don't get paid that $20 if I don't have to go back, and frankly I've given my two weeks, if she hasn't checked her messages it's not my fault, right? It's just SO impossible to pin her down and talk to her and it's driving me insane! I don't want to leave them hanging... but... bah!
    /end vent/
    Thanks for reading!

    That is a bit rough...what kind of business is she running if she isn't even contactable? Have you told the others that you work with that you are leaving?

    I'd just leave. You've handed in your notice, you have tried to call her, and maybe it would have been a good idea to send her a letter but if she has communicated in email in the past that should be acceptable.

    Its not worth putting yourself in a position where you are afraid. She shouldn't be putting you in that position either, and in all honesty I think its irresponsible that she has, as you have told her you have problems.

    People have a way of getting by...I'm sure she'll do fine without you.

    I'd leave. You've wasted a lot of time and breath trying to get through to her and if she can't be professional enough to answer you back, that's her fault. Don't feel bad. If you don't feel safe then its time to move on.
