Should I Quit My Job?....Today.

Been here 11 years. I hate it. I absolutely do NOT enjoy coming here at all. I make very decent money, but I'm not happy here at all. I have no other jobs lined up but all I can think of is putting in my 2 week notice, and doing so TODAY.

Anyone wanna talk me into/outta doing this?

Yearly bonus? We've been without a union contract since 2002. Nobody has gotten raises since then. If I do quit, I can pull my retirement out and live quite nicely for at least 5-6 months.

wait til you've got something else...

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

I agree with them wait til you find another job. If you've lasted 11 years you can last another few months until you get something better lined up.

Yikes, make sure you have something lined up. It also depends on what industry your in and what skills you have. You might not be able to find something.

I haven't checked my lotto numbers (22 million) Maybe I can quit with no notice!!!!

Nah I think you should look for other work, but just walking could leave you with nothing to do, and sitting about on your arse all day not doing much could make ya really depressed and stuff...even more so then being at work. Everyone gets days like this i suppose, but if its serious then look for another job, but dont do anything stupid.
