I'm trying to be a little decent with quitting my job as a bus driver but they know I have a medical issue and i was thinking of just filling out a form to say I am having surgery which is in the future just not as near. I know I could just not come back one day but any other ideas to be a little decent about it?? I know bus drivers are a dime a dozen. Thanks!

Sounds like you feel the need to lie, and I'm not sure why. Give them 2 week notice. I guarantee it will look better on your resume. Unless you never plan on working again.

If you want to be decent about it, turn in your notice and leave.

Give them two weeks notice but leave amicably, making it clear you're going to take care of medical issues. See if you can get a supervisor who likes you to note in your file that they'd rehire you given the opportunity.

Does your medical insurance come via your employer? Do you qualify for FMLA?

If the future really is at all unclear, then I say leave the door open for possibly returning.

If you're using the medical condition as an excuse, that's pretty slimy. Give notice and go.

Can't you just give two weeks' notice, like most people? Or are you saying you want to be covered by health insurance for a while after you take off?

Once you give notice, you have quit. If they don't need you to stay the two weeks, they may not keep you for those 2 weeks, so be prepared for that. Most businesses appreciate the notice, though, and let the employees work those 2 weeks.
