    Good on you for working until the end. It's good to have a clean resignation, because you never know when doing the opposite will end up biting you in the ass in the future. Especially if your previous boss can hold a grudge.

    I've burned so many bridges, I might as well live on an island.

    I have att e mail. My account was hacked and customer service( haha) is no help. Can't get to new e mails because of password authentication.
    Other than saying f it. And creating a new e mail I thought I'd ask if you guys had a better solution?

    I strongly recommend going back to pen and paper. Email is the debil, momma.

    Got to be some way to access it. Keep going after customer service (politely :D). Here's a few obvious and not so obvious tips when dealing with a customer service call center:
    • Escalate your issue to a manager, then escalate again. The low level reps and even managers will cower in fear at the word escalate.
    • Try rep shopping - hang up when they can't help you and immediately call back to get a different rep who might have more tricks up their sleeve.
    • Demand to speak to a rep in the USA. Keep demanding this over and over until they transfer you. USA based reps are generally more helpful.
    To keep this on topic, once upon a time I worked as a phone based CS rep for a big e-commerce company.

    In the future, take the time to set up multi-factor authentication.
