Will I get paid if I leave today?

I took a temporary night job that I thought would be easy. I worked 2 nights, but quickly found it is horrible. Specifically it involves a lot of manual labor that I wasn't expecting and I am in pain and too exhausted to work my day job. I want to quit now and save my body, rather than give my two weeks. I don't care about the reference, but will I see a paycheck in the mail? [more inside]

How do I quit my job in such a way that I still collect upcoming bonus?

I am on the verge of leaving my job at a large game company (the largest) in order to start work elsewhere. Our annual bonus (based on company performance over the last year, expected to be quite good this year) isn't issued till June 1st. I am wondering-- if I give notice and leave before June 1st, am I still entitled to this bonus? How can I find out without potentially spilling the beans that I'm leaving? (I haven't told my manager yet.) Also, if I give 2 weeks notice in such a way that my last day is after June 1st, can the company terminate me in less than 2 weeks so that I don't get my bonus? (In other words if I want to be absolutely sure of collecting my bonus, would it be safest to not give notice at all until June 1st? Assuming I can delay my start date at the new place that long...)

Help a pregnant chainsmoker quit.

Pregnant chainsmoker. I just found out that there's a baby onboard and will see my doctor next week, I'm probably only 3 weeks. As soon as I knew I put my cigarettes down, but now a few days later I really, really want to smoke. Any suggestions that don't involve nicotine patches that may help me stay off the cancer-sticks?

How do I clean my desktop without admin access?

Let's say that someone was leaving their job. They're leaving amicably and of their own volition. They wish no ill will on their soon-to-be former employer, but they would like to leave their workstation as clean as the day they first arrived. We should note here that this person does not have Admin access to this machine, so installable options (like Window Washer) are probably out of the question. Any suggestions?

How do you resign from a job that you've never actually worked?

How do you resign from a job that you've never actually worked? I was hired in the fall to teach a continuing ed photography class, but not enough people signed up, so I didn't teach the class. Same thing happened in winter quarter, not enough people to have the class. Now I'm in the position where I can't really do it spring quarter and this will be the time when there are enough people. So, how do I let them know I can't do it?
