Anyone that would get fired up at you for doing so would have burned said bridge anyhow.
Totally agree with this.

If they wanted you that bad, they shouldn't have created a situation where you wanted to leave. Not personal, just business.

Unless they're giving you an insane offer to stay, AND you know you can deal with it, thank him for his time and move on.
