    you have come to hand in your notice

    So it seemed that whenever my coming marriage was discussed, my recently acquired fortune always seemed to come under consideration.
    I couldn't help enjoying my interview with Lady Bodrean.
    After the will had been read I presented myself to her. She regarded me as though I were quite distasteful, which I suppose I was.
    "So," she said, "you have come to hand in your notice."
    "Certainly I have, Lady Bodrean."
    "I expected it would not be long before you did. So I am to be inconvenienced."
    I replied: "Well, if I was so useful to you, a fact which you very carefully concealed, I would be willing to stay for a week or so until you have replaced me."

    you have come to hand in your notice??

    You have come to see me to tell me that you are quitting your job/resigning. "To hand in your notice" means to tell your employer that you are leaving your job.
