You only give 2 weeks notice to legitimate employers...not some under the table, side-work outfit.

I wouldn't even tell a new employer the depths I had sunk.

I don't trust you.

Second, don't look back.

I would just let my current employer know that I have found another job. Wish him the best, thank him for having me as an employee, and move on.

Unless I was indecisive. In that case I would stay, not say a word, would have never looked for another job in the first place.

They usually let ya know at the last minute when they hand ya your paycheck so they can get that last few minutes/hours of work out of you.

This 2 week notice to employers should not be standard practice.
True, the standard two weeks notice doesn't usually work both ways and there are reasons for that. In many cases if an employee is told they are going to be laid-off or fired they usually don't have such a good attitude afterwards (go figure) which often leads to a lack of productivity, and sometimes even theft or vandalism.

However, if you'd ever like to have a past employer as a good reference, it's best not to quit without notice and leave him hanging. Most future employers will want to know your work history, and large employment gaps don't really look good on your resume.
