Giving Notice was originally posted by "hellboy"...

When I gave my two-week notice, I told my boss that my last day will be the 29th of September. He said that he'd take the weekend to think about, as if he was considering whether or not to accept my resignation.

The following Monday, he sat with me to review my schedule. After a tedious process of telling me everything that I already knew that I had to do, he said, and I quote, "Oh yah, and I'm going to have you stay through the first week of October. You're cheaper as an employee rather than a consultant."

I can't say that I was shocked by this, but it was rather annoying. I reminded him that my last day would be the 29th. The boss was appalled, saying that "he told me" that I'd be working through the first week of October. I told him that it was the 29th, or today. He just got up and left.
