It is with the greatest satisfaction that I am informing you of my resignation effective 15 days from now, 15 March 2008.
Why am I resigning? I believe the more appropriate question is, “How could I not resign?” or, “Why didn’t I resign sooner,” or even, “Why did I ever take this job in the first place?” Since it would take more time and effort than I am willing to spend listing all the reasons for my resignation, I will be listing only my major grievances. They are the following:
(1) I’m bored. I’m stressed.
(2) The company is treating me as a talking robot instead of a human being.
(3) I want to be a full time blogger.
(4) I’m underpaid
I simply cannot take it. As I write this letter, I am half agony, half hope. Despite my problematic financial situation, I have never compromised my principles for money. I worked hard like a carabao for 5 long years even if the pay isn’t enough. I would have resigned sooner but I stayed loyal to this organization.
I believe in due process even if the company has never given me a fair treatment. Thus, I am giving sufficient notice so that this company can find another unfortunate slave to replace me.
I can no longer live on false hopes and promises. I have myself to think of and a family to feed. I could go on and on with my list of grievances but I do not wish to waste any more of time on the same way that I wasted a lot of my time here
blogging, chatting, sleeping. Since the company has failed to recognize my rights as an employee and as a human being, there can be only one inevitable conclusion.
In summary, I look forward to my freedom with the utmost eagerness and satisfaction.
