Once again I think this will fit best in this forum! :D
Here's the rundown: I recently (yay!) got a full-time job and received the call from the employer this past Tuesday. When the lady called she basically said "come in at 9 am on the 16th (this upcoming Monday)" and that was that. Needless to say this is my first full-time job so I didn't really know what I should do or say other than to accept it (I had been waiting and worrying about it for almost two weeks!)
The problem is that I couldn't give my current part-time employer two weeks notice even though I wanted to. When I told my current manager about me leaving she was upset at my new employer saying "didn't they realize you have a job now?" (and yes, I did say on the application that I was currently employed). I told her "Yep, I told them" and that was that. This might be a problem for my current employer because, out of the 30 or so employees in my "area" there are only four of them (myself included) who perform my specific semi-managerial job.
I feel bad about not giving two weeks because this current employer has been a somewhat good gig. I wanted to give them the courtesy but the circumstances wouldn't allow for it.
In parting this current job, is there anything I can do to make-up for the lack of notice? Even if it's not my fault I feel bad just leaving them out to dry like this.
