I quit my job

I'm really sad, and really happy. Does that make me weird?

Well A what did you do. B why did you quit. C any ideas on what to do next.


PETER
You see, they wrote all this bank software and to save space, they put
98 instead of 1998. So I go through these thousands of lines of code
and uh, it doesn't really matter. I, uh, I don't like my job. I don't
think I'm gonna go anymore.

JOANNA
You're just not gonna go?

PETER
Yeah.

JOANNA
Won't you get fired?

PETER
I don't know. But I really don't like it so I'm not gonna go.

JOANNA
LAUGHS) SO YOU'RE GONNA QUIT?

PETER
No, no, not really. I'm just gonna stop going.

JOANNA
When did you decide all that?

PETER
About a week ago.

JOANNA
Really?

PETER
Oh, yeah.

JOANNA
Ok. So, so you're gonna get another job?

PETER
I don't think I 'd like another job.

JOANNA
LAUGHS) SO WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT MONEY AND BILLS?

PETER
Y'know, I never really liked paying bill? I don't think I'll do that
either.

lol no, I decided to follow the great Foo advisors, and not tell her. She and Jughead are happily living elsewhere. I keep wanting to visit them, but maybe it's better I don't. I actually quit because of depression. I'm hoping I can change my surroundings thus changing my mood. Seems like a long shot, but my living situation makes it impossible for me to have friends around here, and I need companionship.
