Conversation during resignation:
Me: I have enjoyed working here. Joe, I have accepted another offer. I have prepared the following project to go over my recommendations on the next 90 days...
Mgr: Max, what made you decide to leave?
Me: Joe, I have prepared this file.
Mgr: Max, you are not answering my question.
Me: Joe, I have accepted another offer.
Mgr: Max, you owe me an explanation!
Me: Joe, I am trying to go through the transition file that I prepared.
Mgr: You are leaving after I defended you!
Me: I accepted another offer.
Mgr: What is it? Your workload? Money?
Mgr: Why did you not talk to me about three weeks ago?
Me: I enjoyed working here with you
Mgr: I take it, this is your notice?
Me: I would like to walk you through the deck I have prepared to discuss the next 90 days
Mgr: What is your last day
Me: 4 weeks, I will be in the office for the next two weeks, an after that I will be available to work from home for the last two weeks
Me: I can go over the project details as pointed out in this deck
Mgr: You are still not telling me why
Me: I have accepted another offer
Mgr: I can't believe you are leaving now. There is a lot of work open and our new big project that you were going to lead.
Me: I have set recommendations on what the priorities are and who to contact in this document
Mgr: I pretty much know what your workload is
Mgr: I will talk to HR

I got up and left the room.
