QuoteOriginally posted by: punkfanatic3000I am in the situation where the work place both bore me and annoys me, which in turns affect my overall mood down. However as it is very busy and don't see it to get better, I was wondering if it is better leave and have time to find a place somewhere else?Bird in hand, two in the bush and all that. Don't leave without something else in place.No here's something a bit more insidious. Presuming you have been at your job for a reasonably long time and are at a bank which nowadays always seem to be in lay off mode, you could start turning down your productivity carefully and get yourself laid off with a few months severance. This would leave you on the payroll, but free to job hunt.
