I need some advice.

I currently hold a job at a company where I work remotely. I get paid $85k per year. Ever since I started working remotely, my work load has decreased to literally nothing. Yes, I get paid to do nothing and I have been doing NOTHING for almost two years. That's crazy, I know, but it's true. I hold a valuable certification that I think they love to keep on their books as saying 'hey, look who we employ'.

I like to work :) I like to work with other people :)

I have just been offered a job that pays more and I would work in a local office. I'm going to take that job. Because... I DO like to work and I like to work with other people :)

Here's the question... if you were me...

After you started your new job, would you quit the old job (where you do nothing) or would you hold on to it until you were simply phased out (let go)? My family certainly could use the dual-income money to pay off debt, but I also think that my new employer wouldn't like the 'idea' of me being an employee of someone else, even though I 'do nothing'! I think I would have keep that secret from them, although I wonder if there is a way they could find out by doing a check of some sort.


What would you do? Keep or quit the 'do nothing' job?
