Did what I had to do.

Ok..It's done! My now ex-boss was stunned. He did not expect me quit. But what did he expect? In my previous post I didn't really explain why I was upset. I didn't want to bore you guys with a long rant so I just summed up what I was going to do. Now, I'll quickly tell you what led to that.

I sell Real Estate and I have sold just under 40 properties over the past 5 six years. That's not great but it's also not bad. I was asked to give up my corner office becasue they need the space and so another agent with 12 sales in the past 6 years can keep hers (I've had mine for about 4 years and she just got hers this year, wtf?). The branch manager is an old pervert and this other agent comes in about once a month or so (seriously...she comes to the office only about once a month. That's it.) wearing small outfits and acts all bubbly and flirtatious with him. When you look at the production numbers I just don't see the logic. The only explanation I can see is that this old man has a thing for this woman and wants to keep her around.
So today I told the old perv that I quit and I'll take my business somewhere else where it will be appreciated. He didn't think I was going to do that. He was stunned and stayed quiet for a minute and that was pretty much that. It was almost anti-climactic. I also taught the Real Estate Licencing class so I decided to this about an hour before the class was supposed to start. Needless to say there was no class tonight.

Getting hired at a Real Estate company is as easy as walking into an office with your license and asking for a job. The hard part is selling the houses. My motivation is super high right now. I'm shooting for a better market where homes cost more and to double my production. Fuck that guy!

  19. I read a good quote on another site earlier, only hard work beats hard luck.

    Hopefully, with hard work you'll double that old douches paycheck in a few years, and then you can spend some time running his business into the ground if you were so inclined =3

    Good luck!

  22. I think the only thing you did wrong was not doing an act of public nudity lol. Good for you, his silence lets you know he knows what he's lost, and that it might not be worth the T&A he gets for it. Good luck with the future!
