I have had this job for six years. I don't want to say what it is. The pay was high, the job dangerous, the people scum. It was not a desk job. My soul and spirit were raped unto hell by association with this employment and this specific company and it will take me years to recover.
I am quitting this job now. I have arranged to begin a dream-job with a friend. The new job has zero connexion to the old job and I don't expect ever to use them as a reference or work in that industry again. I have been on leave since early January. The company lady has just written me to say they'll need to schedule me back in within a week or so. It is time to do this.
How should I go about quitting the old job? I live far, far away so it will be done in writing only. No shitting in the bossman's desk. Some caveats. Though I have loathed this job and though it has done significant psychological damage against me, it is not in my nature to burn bridges, even ones I never expect to use again. On the other hand I don't want to waste a classic opportunity to have some fun with an entity which can no longer touch me.
Should I resign graciously and politely? Should I sock them with a blast of hate-filled invective? Should I play evasive and work them like a cat with string? Should I just do nothing, walk away without a word? Help me do the right thing.
PS- though I hate to admit it even to myself, the new dream-job is not yet rock solid. I'd say 70% and stronger by the day. But not yet an absolute sure thing. I have enough money to last 18 months without earning a dime and taking no hit to my chosen lifestyle. I've sworn to myself that I will hang myself before I slink back to the bad job for any reason. But just in case... Should I play polite with my resignation just in case for some godless reason I have no option but to go back? Or should I use this as opportunity to nuke the bridge specifically as assurance I CAN NEVER go back?
