Meg Frampton of Meg & Dia checked in with fans on the group’s blog at MySpace (@megdia) on Saturday (September 18), talking about how she quit the part time job she’s been working at the past three months, which was about the time they were dropped from Warner Bros. Records. Meg writes:
Our band is finally getting to the point where we are so busy doing things for our music that I finally had no time for my part time job (thanks to all of you!) I love my manager and my assistant manager. I couldn’t sleep last night because I was so nervous about quitting. I texted my band members all night asking them in a panic, “What should I do! How should I tell her”
On my way into work this morning I thought, “Well, maybe I should just keep the job. I could really use the extra money.” I kept rationalizing staying just so I wouldn’t have to go through the awkwardness of quitting. I didn’t want to look up at my manager’s hurt face after I told her the news. That image haunted me with each step into the store.
All day long, I kept myself busy and tried to think about anything other than the terrible conversation that was sure to come. I thought of how I might present my case in the most appreciative and positive way. My manager walked into work with the biggest smile I had ever seen on her face . I don’t know why she was so cheerful on this particular day. Her happiness made me feel even more guilty. She even brought back gifts for me from her manager’s meeting in Florida, a shiny high-end pen with our company logo and a sterling silver business card case. Perfect. On the day I decide to give my two weeks notice my manager decides to wake-up on the side of the bed where the birds are singing and the sun is singing along in harmony.
