    @CamandJarvis I tried to send this privately but MFP! I won’t pretend to be able to keep those options straight. Here is my advice. If your boss adores you, as you do him, I believe you should tell him an excellent opportunity has opened up for you and your plans have changed. That you will be leaving after your vacation but have no firm date. Tell him you will be back after vacation to complete you handover documentation. Now, a question for you - what if he matches their offer? I have no idea where you work or if that is a possibility but . . .

    Edited: Having just read your 2nd post, I would wait until after vacation. The one time I gave extra notice it cost me the “automatic” raise I would have gotten for one month. My last job I had for 23.5 years and made no secret of when I would be retiring. My co-workers were awesome about it as I counted down for 6 months or longer.
