I'm going to quit my (god-awful, horrible, $hitty) job. The thing is, I'm not sure when to do it. I announced that I was pregnant when I was ~14 weeks or so. My boss just said "tell your husband thanks a lot". seriously. thanks a-hole. He can be a real prick most of the time. However, sometimes he's not. It's like Jekyll and Hyde. Anyway, I was going to stick it out til the end of july (due date is 8-18) but things have gotten way worse overall for me at work so we decided that i could quit in May instead so I could enjoy the summer. (My eventual plan is to look for a new job 6 mos post partum). My boss seems to already anticipate that I'll be quitting and has said to me TWICE that he'd appreicate it if I gave him advanced notice that I'd be quitting so he'd have time to find a replacement. Ok fine. Here's the kicker. Our busiest time is in June. We have a huge tradeshow that I'm in charge of in mid June. It requires me to leave on a Friday, work all weekend and come back on Wed. No comp time. This tradeshow means that I'm on my feet all day (7 hrs) with no breaks besides bathroom. For food, I usually just bring protein bars and gobble them up when I go to the bathroom. I hate it and I'd love to miss it. But admittedly, I feel guilt- mainly for my coworkers- for bailing so close to theshow.
My question is two-fold:
a) how much time should I/ would you give?
b) is it awful to quit in May or should I suck it up and wait til the tradeshow is over?
