Email to My Father, November 4, 1999

I’m writing this to you because I don’t want to argue with you, Dad, about my decision. I’ve given the status of my job a great deal of thought and, based on the conversation I had with my boss yesterday, I resigned from my job at Candle today. I know you don’t agree with the way I did it but I do already have an interview lined up here in Augusta for TechKnowledge. I know the ideal situation would be to get another job before I left this one, and believe me I tried to do it that way, but the situation at work had become so hostile that I could no longer tolerate the attitudes of my team leader and my boss. Like you said in the last email you sent to me, you know that I’ve tried so hard to make this job work but realistically, this job was not a good match for me and I needed to come home. 

Please don’t call me until you are able to talk with me about this without arguing because arguing isn’t going to get us anywhere. I made my decision, whether it was the right one or wrong one I have already made it, and rehashing it isn’t going to do either of us any good. You know I love you and respect your opinion but I’m the one who had to put up with the attitudes of these people who don’t have a clue what it’s like to be a single parent and to be needed at home. 

Anyway, I wanted to tell you before you called me at work and found I was no longer there. I’m sorry I had to write it but, as always, I’m able to better express myself with the written word rather than in person. 

I love you and hope you can find it in your heart to understand why I did what I did.
