CaptainWill -- Yeah my current job I need to give notice 2 months in advance.
Fire_Kame -- just tell them you're training someone new.
Fire_Kame -- Don't know how it is in the UK, but don't you guys have notice or something? Depending on the position you're leaving they may expect you to stay a bit anyway. I've only had one company try to excessively convince me to start the next day, and that was just for a restaurant years ago
