My boss started asking me questions about if my husband and I were planning to stay in Hawaii and stuff on Friday. She finally said, basically I'm wondering if you're going to stay here. I don't want to lie to her, so I said I wasn't sure, and she asked me to explain. I told her that living out here, and having my grandma sick, I was thinking that I may need a job with more flexability.
She brought it back up today, and again, unwilling to lie about it, I told her that I was considering a career that would allow me to work from home so if I needed to go off island, I can take my work with me. I told her I was looking at a Medical Transcription course, and it would take about six months to complete and yadda yadda. At the end of the conversation, she said "So basically you're giving your six month notice." I said yes, I guess that is sort of what we're talkng about.
Did I just majorly shoot myself in the foot...? I'm afraid I didn't handle it very well. It's true that I probably would've left in about six months, but what I'd I can't finish the course in time or I don't find a job right away? Is this "notice" going to mean she can let me go and I can't get unemployment if I really need it?
I feel like I majorly screwed up here today, but I just want to be honest about what's going on.
