Your End Game. When you hand in your resignation, it can kick off a bit of chaos__your position will need to be filled, but your duties will also need to be covered until they can replace you. As part of your resignation letter, it's a good idea to convey what your availability is during that transitional period.
Spot the Signs. The most obvious sign that you'll receive this reaction is if you haven't had a healthy relationship with your manager in the past. Maybe you continually challenged his ideas, and he took that as a sign of disrespect. Or, maybe she always made unreasonable demands, and you were never able to see eye_to_eye on your to_do list. Or perhaps his moods were completely unpredictable. In any case, if your relationship has been strained, you may receive a less_than_ideal response to your two weeks' notice.
