25 People Who Quit Their Job on the Spot

Do you work to live, or live to work? I'd say most of us, especially those working in service or hospitality jobs in our late teens/early twenties, will tell you that we're just working for the money. The job itself doesn't matter (who wants to be a checkout chick for the rest of their life anyway?). But some bosses take things too seriously, and mistakenly think that you'd put the job first over other things, like Thanksgiving with your family or your father's funeral. Seriously. With nightmare bosses like these, quitting seems pretty reasonable, and that's exactly what these people on Reddit have done. I applaud them for their good timing.

"Take this job and shove it." 

Six words we all wish we could say on an almost moment by moment basis. We've got episodes of The Americans we could be bingeing. This dude didn't say those precise words, but he made his point. 

After quitting his job over the phone, he punched the shit out of his laptop, threw his phone, and started crying. That's why a strong work-life balance is important. Time to start putting that mindfulness training into practice.
