My Boss is a di*K

I handed in my notice the other day..got fed up with where I work and looked for another job. I found a new job and it put my old one to shame. so yesterday I gave my boss my resignation letter and left him to read through it... Now he's gone really odd! he's been trying to call me all night...and then sent me a text asking if i'd told anyone. (yes I did tell everyone, i was very happy and i took great pleasure in letting everyone know I was off) I think he's taken it a bit personally to be honest...

what's the diffrence if i tell anyone about it

If he carries on ringing me, he's gonna get a slap!

what a Di*k!!
 
Humour him until you have been in your new job a week or two, just in case it turns out to be the pits and you want your old job back!
 
I was once told never to crap on people on the way up, as you will meet them again on the way down......

On the other hand, slap him :)
 
Always try to leave on good terms - first of all you might need your old job back if things don't go to plan, secondly, the world's a small place and your boss might know people you'll want "on-side".
 
What Jim and Nick says is good thinking. Plus.... just watch him. There`s always a slight chance he could be looking for a way to bite you back.

Best to keep your contacts in any trade. You may even go into business yourself and need something from him like leads, advice or........... half of his customers:D

Politley remind him that he should deal with any work related issues during work time.

There's no reason why you shouldn't tell your colleagues that your leaving, but its probably best to leave the reason as 'personal differences'.

As stated by others, bad mouthing or worse will more as likely turn round and bite you on the bum later on.

Clean break and stuff 'em has always been my policy.
 
I'd be keeping on the right side of him. You never know if a future employer of yours may approach him for a reference.

Thanks guys! I've spoken to him today and confirmed that he is indeed a di*k! my resignation letter is still on his desk, I asked him if he's sent a copy to HR? he said "no...because ive got something you might be interested in" he then gave me some story about working for him at another site/office. He is the main reason that i'm leaving the company for exactly this reason! stupid little games trying to mess with peoples careers.

so the general feel is that i should give him a slap :D:D I think I'll wait until the 13th Feb... oh! that's my last day of work!! fancy that!! :D:D

what a di*k!
 
Probably better to go over his head and ring HR yourself then.

Then give any future employer that name and number instead for references.

Good advice, and make sure that HR know when you submitted you resignation - you don't want to be serving extra notice period just because he sat on it. Just be decent about how you handle everything - you never know what contacts he has.
 
yeah exactly what I thought...luckily for me I sent him a letter and H.R at the same time :D:D

he asked if i mind training someone to take over my job...I said "what, in a month?? I think you'll find it might take a bit longer" he said "yeah but what do you actually do day to day" I was so close to telling him i play on a nice familiar green website where i can escape your stupid ar$e hole of a face and regain my sanity before taking on another underpaid, over complicated and mundane task :D
 
" he said "yeah but what do you actually do day to day" :D

It never ceases to amaze me how many bosses haven't a clue what the employees do! It seems particularly true in government.
In my old fashioned way of thinking, I thought that was one of the major tasks of a boss.
 
yeah

So how much training does a new forum member need then?:) :)
Surely you can do that in less than a month :D :D
 
well there are Polls to get your head around.... once you can do one of them you are what I would call an expert :D

plus you have to "serve your time" 1000 or more posts should do it

:D
