For me your question goes sync with the "frustration thread" and pops the question, why designers
tend to be so overly submissive? In a business forum the first two answers might have been
adjusted a little differently.
If you really feel that you were taken advantage of, why on earth shouldn't you quit within a days
notice. That's just part of your deal:
As an employer, if I want to find people who are commited and long term partners I will pay and
treat them accordingly. If I decide to work with "freelancers" on the cheap, part of the consequences
is, that a freelancer can leave the job abruptly.
That happens all the time and is absolutely understood by veterans.
Why on earth should you give them 14 days notice? Would they have given you?
I don't want to affect you to call anybody names. Just act in a way that allows you to still look at
your reflection in the mirror and tell your grandchildren the truth about that day in your life.
Chin up! yours mo-i
