  • Have you ever walked out on a job...

    You know, one minute you're working and then the next minute you say "**************** this, I quit" and walk out the door?

    I never have.....but please, share your tales.

    Yep, FedEx Ground. I had put my notice in and only had three days left anyway. I gave the shift manager the middle finger on the way out too.

          I did - job in a pizza shop in college. Got a call to play bass in a gigging bar band, which was a much cooler way to earn some beer money. I got the call, took off my apron and walked out. It felt great.

              i was sitting at my desk typing, and it fell apart. just totally came apart. the owner heard a loud crash and came over to see what happened. didn't ask if i was ok. just said, "you can get another desk from over there. make sure you throw this one out in the dumpster." i looked at him and just walked out. stupid me went back after they asked me to though.
              There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov, Newsweek (21 January 1980)

                      Well I used to work at Damon's and then one day decided to just not go back. Not very dramatic and it doesn't really count I guess but it's all I've got.

                      I have given my fair share of 2 week notices though. Boy you should've seen the looks on thier faces. kinda like this

                        Never. As an HR manager, I really ****************ing hate it when people do that.

                          Sort of but not really.

                          I just blew off my last shift at the place where I tended bar right before I was leaving for law school. Not very dramatic.

                              I did once but it's almost a joke and you're going to laugh at me. I was working for a telemarketer (I was young!) but I was not doing phone calls. I was there mainly for IT support. That was a temp job.

                              Last day came and that was in summer. There was nothing to do and I told the guy in charge that I was leaving because there was nothing to do. He told me to wait for the boss to come back. I said "what for?!" and I left (on lunch break).

                              I never looked back. I'm such a rebel.
