    "This book provided me a great explanation of how to handle putting in my resignation. I had worked at Dominos for two and a half years and grew close to a lot of people, but the time for me to go was now. I didn't know how to tell anyone, and I attained a lot of anxiety about it because I was afraid everyone would be upset with me.
