I gave notice!

Today was my first day back and I was definitely being wimpy and stuff finally I just asked my manager.. do you have 5 mins?

We went to a teamroom and I just said: "May 6th is my last day."

And he took it very well actually, he did say he had talked to another manager about moving me to a different team that was .NET, but he seems pretty cool.

The only thing was he asked if I was working for HP. Apparently if it was a competitor, he would've walked me out the moment I gave notice. WHAT? I told him I was going to be a wedding photographer. No competition to Dell there.

WOOO!

Congratulations!

The HP "escort you from the building" thing is pretty hard core. Fears of corporate espionage or something? Weird!

"Fears of corporate espionage or something?"

Actually.. yes, probably.

Given that they generally have to pay you for your termination-period, even if they voluntarily choose not to take advantage of your skills, you should've said you're going to HP. :)

Congratulations !

Yeah, I didn't know that. Actually they don't have to, but apparently it's likely they would've!
