I've Had Enough

    Yes, I've had enough of this game.

    I'm quitting my job. Big paper, too.

    I give notice on Friday, and in two more weeks I'm gone.

    It totally sucks. But it's better to go than to work like this.

    Please give more details of what you have to put up with at work so we can have a better discussion.

    Or is this a hypothetical?

    Dude, SportsNight got cancelled years ago.
    Did you finally get the memo from Isaac?

    No hypothetical here. I'm gone.

    Staff has been cut beyond the bone, BossMan hides in his office, bad team, bad deal.

    It coulda been so great. But they didn't care about the work, and then they just kept cutting back, and now I'm just gonna hit the road.

    Thank God for that.
  7. You're hired!

    Oh wait, never mind.

    So if you have made your decision, why do we need to discuss it?
    Your life, your choice.
    Good luck whatever you do.

    Dunno, X. Take some time off, I guess. Wash this shit off of me.

    Get back into the game later on, but I hope it's not newspapers anymore.

    Nobody wants talent anymore. They just want young kids pushing the buttons to make the machine run on time.

    Utter bullshit, but the suits are cleaning up.

    My life, your future, Spirited. Think about that.

    I'm a news dog. Was in 30 years.
