Calming Brits (& Irishmen)

RSS

Hiya. This morning I recieved the news that I passed a rather horrid exam I was struggling with a few semesters now and it nearly cost me my degree. But I finally passed! Anyway, I'm just really happy at the moment and was wondering if you could send some celebratory brits for me and to brighten other people's day who may struggle with school, uni or work ... Thank you.

Congratulations! So we could go with the basic thumbs up.

Or we could go a little more enthusiastic.

Or if we dare we could…no we shouldn’t. Nevermind. 

But it is Friday so maybe……

We could go for a

Happy Friday everyone. 

I'm sure you've already gotten a lot of replies, but the hugging gif is from the movie "Wreckers." :-)

Pretty sure the hugging gif of Benedict is from 'wreckers'

Hi! This isn't a question per say. Just wondering if you knew where that Benedict Cumberbatch hugging gif was from. Thats might be vague! It was on one of the last questions posted.

You know I actually do not know. I am sure one of our followers does indeed know though so here is the gif.

Who can name the role?

ETA Looks like Wreckers. Thanks for those who answered. 

Just advice on kind of what to say or do lol. Sorry that I wasn't clear! I'm just nervous about it and afraid that I may break down and cry. I don't deal well with this kind of stuff.. But thanks in advance

This kind of stuff is awful to deal with so I completely understand being nervous.

You want to be as professional as possible. You want to stress that you are leaving to pursue….. well whatever it is you are moving onto (whether that be a new job, schooling, deep sea treasure hunting), not anything negative about the job, but the positive of what you are looking forward to so that way you are leaving on the best terms possible. It is always better not to burn your bridges.

Now if the place you are departing is positively awful and you are looking forward to burning down that damn bridge and running away cackling I’m going to caution against that.

Leaving as professionally and politely as possible is always best since odds are good that you will need a reference from this job in the future.

Thanking your soon to be former employers for the opportunity is always a nice touch. Hopefully you are able to give them notice so that you are leaving them time to find your replacement.

I tend to cry easily as well. I cry when I’m sad, angry, nervous, hurt, happy. Not when cutting onions though, that is my lame super power, I can cut onions without tears. I worked in a restaurant when I was in high school and was always assigned the onions because I was the only one capable without become a blubbering mess. Sorry random unnecessary personal information that is not at all helpful to you in any manner.

Back to the point, practice. Figure out what you want to say and practice. Look in the mirror and say it out loud or if there is someone you can practice on, do that because the easier it comes out of your mouth the greater the chance you will get it out without the water works. Not that there is anything wrong with tears, but I completely understand not wanting to shed any. So practice a lot so it goes smoother.

I plan on quitting my job today and would appreciate some advice! :) I'm so nervous! I have a bit of social anxiety and it doesn't help in this situation.. Thank you so much! You all are wonderful!
