    To talk of other things.
    Of shoes and ships and sealing wax.
    Of cabbages and kings...

    I put in my two weeks. These will be my last two weeks with the great red devil. This was a very difficult decision to make but ultimately I have chosen to focus primarily on my education going forward and less so on the stresses of retail life. There were other reasons, too. As many of you likely know, I have not been happy here for a long time. Though I had hoped to leave once I had a new job lined up, I can't do this any longer with a genuine smile still on my face. I don't feel appreciated with this company and at my store. More and more I dread going into work.

    I'll still be around. I've met some great people on TBR and leaving Spot doesn't mean I can't still share in your pains. Thanks y'all for hosting my rants and my ravings. I'm glad to be joining recent departures like @redeye58. I did say I'd leave through that door screaming Ms. Red.

    Good for you! You've been unhappy for quite awhile. I'm glad you're prioritizing school as well as sanity :)

    Education is but a rung in the ladder upward out of the morass of mediocrity.
    Remember Flabber, the best revenge is to succeed.
    I'll be holding the door open when you're ready to come screaming thru ;)

    Get your degree and then, just for shits and giggles, try and come back as an ETL.

    Best of luck to you! Spot can be a cruel mistress. Just don't forget that you have learned so much from Target even if you don't know it yet. Patience, respect, and an appreciation of retail are what i have learned so far.

    I'm literally crying.
    I'm happy for you but I'm sad at the same time. You've done a great big and brave thing, and you'll be on to bigger and better things in no time. I'm proud of you and your journey. I hope you'll keep in touch - you have my fb and my number (although my number still won't be back on til sunday) but if you choose not to keep in contact that way, I still hope at the very least you'll keep in contact through TBR.

    And I'm holding you to those drinks, believe that. If I have to pay your way down here for a weekend, we're having drinks.

    Good luck to you <3

    Kick ass and take names.

    I can't speak for @Flabbergasted or @redeye58 but I have been following them long enough to know that Spot has worked really hard to make life a misery for them.
    When you hate the thought of going to work every day, when you know that you aren't appreciated and when the bosses treat you like gum on their shoe, it's time to move on.

    I certainly understand that you work at one of the good stores and the day to day frustrations of the job are no big deal because you don't have the additional problem of poor management but trust me, a good portion of the stores aren't like that especially if you are in positions like Flabbergasted or if you've been around as long as redeye.

    You made the right choice Flabbergasted, now go out there, kick ass and take names.
    The world is yours and there is a job waiting for you where you will be appreciated, needed and that you will be happy to go to work everyday.
    It might take some work to get to (so stay in school, young man) but it is out there.

    I am happy for you, @Flabbergasted! I just can't say enough how great it feels to leave that house of horrors behind! Yes, it is scary at first, but enjoy the ride. Stay in school and out of Target! Please stick around.

    Best of luck to you. Sometimes you find yourself in a no win situation w a job. You stepped up and now you can exit gracefully and focus on school. Visit TBR let us know how you're doing.

    Just finished my last ever service desk shift. Last few shifts will be as GSA. It's really hard to believe this is it.
