    Sometimes you need that 2 week paycheck. I had a manager that would tell you to leave immediately when you tried to turn in your 2 week notice (the company asked for the notice when they first hired you).
    I knew I couldn't afford missing on the pay, so I emailed him the notice with cc to the HR lady. He was fuming for those two weeks!

    Exactly. When you've already lost your place, bulk of your personal possessions, made 20k last year and already have a reportable accident on your DAC with said company, you might wanna use a little prudence on how you handle the situation.

    And a smart number at that. I like to think he got mad because I beat him at his game.

    Eh I’ll probably just take home time at a terminal and have a ride there waiting. Clean the truck out and go home.

    You can click on the "messages" number on a poster's profile and read their postings.

    Look, I'm not trying to be critical of the op. Just pointing out that she is in the middle of (by her own admission) some challenges. Just turning in her keys and walking away without at least giving them some advanced notice probably isn't too wise for her right now.
