So I was offer a better job that's more convenient for me. I'm going to get payed $13 an hour as a hostess, also it's closer to home and my bf's place, this place will look better in my resume, and I get the two days off I desire, sat and sun. However I feel awful quitting this job I've been working in for two weeks. I never knew something better would come quickly to me. The people are nice, the owner, and the people from the back everyday cook for their employees, I feel love. But I make $10 an hour, work 6 days a week, is not a well known establishment and is a bit farther from home than the other job. I am positive I want to do this, but I just don't know how to go about it. I start working Monday for this place? How do o go apt doing this today in person?

You explain, calmly and politely, that you have an opportunity, and that you, like every other employed person, do not work for the sake of the business you work for, but you work for the sake of your own well being. You thank him for having given you work thus far. You thank him for giving you the skills that will help you do better in your new job, and you wish him well.
And you work every day you have remaining at that job, after giving notice, as if you never gave notice, and as if your performance truly mattered.
Our entire economic system is based on working a low paying job, to get the skills and experience needed to either be promoted, or to leave for another, higher paying job, if no promotions where you are are available. This is not a betrayal of the people you work for. I have no doubt your manager will understand, and be happy for you, and while appreciating your desire for being polite, may even be somewhat confused that you seem so apologetic about moving on to do what is best for you.0

What you really should have done is given some notice and told the new place you can't start until X date. But since you didn't, all that's left is an apologetic version of exactly what you wrote here.. to the management of the current work. you might even offer is to to stay in a couple extra days till they find a replacement and let the new place know this.0
