So long, farewell
I had already given in my notice a few days prior, had a new job lined up. The big box retailer I worked for at the time put me on all day greeting duty and the managers started being dicks, not letting me go to the toilet etc.
So, after the third day I just walked away, got my stuff and left. (Saggylicious)
This happened to me, too.
Both of my managers (I was a keyholder) told all of the associates I was leaving, where I was going, and how they thought I’d suck at my new job. They couldn’t believe that a young person would think a 9 to 5 is desirable. They kept trying to make me regret putting in my notice.
3 shifts after I put in my notice, I was settling in at the start of my shift. I have a small cat tattoo on my wrist. I had the sleeves of my cardigan rolled up to clean some glass. It had NEVER been a problem for me to do that in the entire 2 years I had been there. My manager said to me, “If my cat didn’t have a vet appointment, I’d send you home for breaking dress code.”
So I did the only logical thing. I took my keys off and left immediately. Never went back. She called me but I deleted the voicemail without listening. (halcyonights)
I don’t know how they thought creating a hostile work environment would make you regret leaving. (firenest)
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
I am an auto mechanic. Was doing an alignment inspection and the car only needed minor adjustments. All components were tight and in good working order. When I brought the work order to the office the service advisor told me he was going to tell customer the car needed shocks and struts to be safe. I loaded my tool box in my truck, only worked there 2 1/2 hrs. Wasn’t about to work at a shop where that was SOP. (gearhead488)
Was working as a butcher at a “high end” shop. Specialty sausages, all natural meats, exotic deli section, stuff like that. On top of the usual shitty parts of working as a butcher (hard work, low pay, bitchy customers, weird hours) the place never had their equipment serviced, never had their knives sharpened, sold frozen hormone fed crap meat as “all natural” complete with “all natural price”, recycled expired, and by expired I mean green meat into their hot bar food, forced the butcher staff to work in the deli which led to customer complaints from the blood all over our arms and aprons. This job paid just .50c over minimum wage. One Sunday the owner came back into the cutting room and started berating me for cutting new steaks to replace some old ones in the case that were obviously not going to sell as they were starting to get kinda crusty. He screamed in Polish until he was red in the face, threw his hat on the (bloody) ground and stormed out. I waited until it got really busy, told him to go f**k himself, and left (dankthrone666)
