Cycle 14 – Item 208
1 (Tue) August 2023
at JJ Beer
-Daechi, Gangnam, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
JJ Beer is a Korean pub.
I quit my job today. Increasingly frequent and bitter spats with my mother at work – who’s technically my superior but really just a nagging parent – have been threatening to tear apart my filial relationship with her, which had always been strong. I have never been so profoundly/painfully stressed due to my job, because the stress is so fundamentally personal this time. It began on Day One, but started to accelerate/escalate over the past year. In the wake of our prior altercation, perhaps a week ago, I’d sworn that the next one would be the last. The next one came this morning. I immediately went into the office of The Boss (my father) and resigned, effective immediately. He told me to think it over. I replied that this was the result of me already thinking it over for 6 months. And that was that.
Now what do I do?
Previously, W had scheduled an appointment with a financial advisor for this afternoon to assess our family asset portfolio. Given what had just happened, I wasn’t in any condition to sit in on such a discussion, so I parked myself in a nearby pub and drank until she was done.
