Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

Do you feel like your lack of qualification is putting your safety at risk? If not, why do you feel that quitting is a better option than trying to learn the new job duties? I very much look forward to helping you on this matter.

Thank you, ***** *****'s not quite what I'm asking. What I am asking is do you feel that your physical safety is at risk because you don't know how to perform the new job duties? If that is not the issue, why do you feel that you must quit instead of learning how to perform the new job duties? In other words, why is quitting your only option here?
