Mum was so awesome. No killing at all. She said I was brave for quitting in person. Then she told me about the awful job she'd had for two days. And Dad told me about the taxi driving job he'd once had for a day (my Dad was an experienced architect, by the way.)
Not to mention everything those of you on my friends list have said makes me feel a hundred times better.
I have failed in this, but now it just makes me more determined to get a damn teaching job.
