Here are some of the best - even worst - moments:
1.This quiet quitter:
"I was the manager of a Dollar General Market. I went out last May. I made $ 9.75 an hour ... worked there for two years, got promoted, came in on days off, worked all holidays, moved to departments. " upon need. I worked there through the toilet paper wars and the following year of COVID. EVERYONE started to leave. We lost eight people in two weeks. I asked for a raise. I then begged for a raise. I only wanted $ 11 / hr. They didn't want to give it to me. So I went in one evening, asked who my cashiers and crew were for the shift, and was told it was just me and a manager. I didn't make a scene. I just quietly took off my nameplate, put down my keys and left the shop. "

2. This legitimate customer situation:
"My last job in customer service. I worked for a large car rental company. Guy calls on full melt mode because the car he picked up didn't have a push button start. That's right. The car he got was a key start. Apparently it was the end of the world for him. Quit after that call and haven't worked in customer service since. Now in a quiet little data entry role at an insurance company and couldn't be happier. "

3. This Penny Pincher Manager:
“I almost quit fast food over 26 ¢. I taught someone, took an order and cooked the food at the same time. I accidentally used the wrong coupon with a discount of 26 ¢. My supervisor told me I had to pay for this and I said, 'I'm going to keep making this drink because I want to, but if you can get me to pay that 26 ¢ while I'm screwing my ass here, go I get out.

4.This randomly rude manager:
"I've been waiting for someone to ask this. My first job was a McDonald's near my house, and I worked in the kitchen and cleaned for hours. The day before I quit I had to go to 25+ DRUNK AND HIGH guys and Girls cleaning up who decided to order over 150 meals for themselves in the ballpark somewhere and decided not to clean anything. They even left their own beer bottles and joints everywhere at 10:30 p.m. Wanted to fire me for no reason Quit my job and fuck my shit. Worst experience ever. "

5. This anti-WFH manager:
"I stayed home to take care of my wife because she was sick and couldn't get out of bed. I texted my boss: 'I'll take my wife to the doctor very quickly and then work from home to take care of them. " her. ”The boss text me to call him and says,“ It's great that you want to take care of your wife, but you have to learn that she is an adult and can take care of herself. ”Listen next Day up. "

6. This anti-overtime manager:
"I worked in a furniture store after moving to a bigger city. They told me it was $ 10 an hour, which wasn't great, but it was something. I got about 47 hours and in the first week Worked 45 hours the next week and I was I'm pretty excited to get some OT salary, but when I got my paycheck there was no overtime. I asked the manager and he said, "You don't get overtime pay." I told him this was never discussed during the hiring process and he said it should have been and if I don't like it I can go. So I took off my work shirt and went out shirtless. "

7. This unsupportive HR team:
"My job as a prison guard. I had nightmares and various mental health problems related to the things I had been through and wanted to get therapy for. I asked Human Resources to help me find support and they decided instead, take a month's unannounced leave. " I asked my head of security for help and he was essentially mocking me. So I found therapy on my own, then the prison found out (unclear how, although I suspect my ex was involved) and put me on indefinite leave. I responded with resignation. "

8. This loyal colleague:
“My boss yelled at my colleague for not doing something - he made him cry on the sales floor. So I went to my boss and yelled in his face, got sent home and never came back. Everyone in the department quit after they found out how we were treated. The entire team has resigned. "

9. This heartbreaking career:
“Three days of work in a number of homes for children who have been taken away from their families and placed in foster care. I am a kind, loving and caring person. I wanted to take every child home and see the incompetence of the system and my inability to do literally ANYTHING made me leave. I wish I could handle it, but I cried every day and I still cry because of these kids. "

10. This clever conclusion:
"I was 18 and asked for a week's vacation in two weeks. They said no. I said, 'Okay, I quit and my last day is in two weeks.' No meltdown, but I really needed this break. "

11. This Inappropriate Boss:
“I was told my work time would be 8:30 am to 5:30 pm. Instead, I learned that everyone was expected to stay until at least 7:00 p.m. every night - with regular end times at 9:00 p.m. I tried to convince myself to hold on to the job until I found a new one; then I learned that my boss had given my clients my personal cell phone number so they could call me whenever they wanted. I quit eight days later. "

12. This unsafe environment:
"My job has been threatened as I struggled to maintain COVID security measures to keep my employees safe. I quit."

13. And last but not least, this irresponsible boss:
"I quit a correctional job after 8.5 years because of a shitty sergeant. He was promoted by the newly elected sheriff but was terribly unqualified for the job. In his infinite wisdom, he decided to admit an inmate's wife and co-defendant to jail to change the bandage on the inmate's body instead of getting our medical staff to do it (because she didn't want to) or sending him to a wound clinic (because we'd lose an officer for an hour or so). me was instructed to escort the woman to the inmate so she could change her bandage, and I refused to do so. I was suspended for three days, and I handed over all of my equipment the night before I was due to return to work and left. "
