    It does happen all the time.

    The contract isn't "broken" if you give the notice it stipulates.

    Believe what you want. You appear to be a very angry person. I
    would enjoy interviewing you.

    By the way, you may want to go back to grade school to learn the
    difference between "whether" and "weather."

    You appear to be a very angry person.

    You're welcome.
