'That was the first job I ever quit': 15+ Fed-up workers explain the exact moments they decided to quit their toxic jobs

No matter how patient someone is, everyone has their breaking point. Most people who quit a job on the spot don't quit because of an isolated incident.

There are only so many times a Karen customer can confront you about prices that aren't in your control before you start to daydream about unemployment. These k…

'My raise was 0.5%': Plant operator quiet quits after receiving "insulting" low raise

Getting denied a raise stinks, but at least you've left your thoughts and intentions on the table for consideration, hopefully setting yourself up for a pay bump in the near future when the next round of budgeting is finalized. Of course, this isn't always the case, and your employer may go the route of stonewalling you indefinitely—or gaslighting you by dangling the potential of a raise in front of you like a carrot on a stick in order to get you to do more work.

Worker laments the firing of their 'crucial' supervisor who was leading their already understaffed team: 'I might just quit soon'

Trying to keep up with an increasing workload on an understaffed team is a lot like trying to drive a car that only has three wheels. It's difficult to keep things moving forward without veering off course; things operate extremely inefficiently, and there's probably a lot of noise and scraping going on. Of course, managing these situations is no easy task—not impossible for a talented manager, but only through a great deal of effort. For this reason, managers who manage to protect their alread…

There's that common saying that people don't quit bad jobs, they leave due to bad management. Over time, having a micromanaging boss or a supervisor who continually berates you really wears an emplo…

'This is my supervillain origin story': Boss tries to tell worker that their demotion is a good thing, they leave and sabotage the company

Oftentimes in life, we will try and soften the effect that our words will have on the chosen recipient through careful wording and euphemisms, hoping that in beating around the bush enough we'll still manage to get our point across but in a way that doesn't upset the target party. Of course, usually, if the person you're speaking to is getting the point and the point is something that they should be upset about, they're just going to get upset anyway. This renders the entire thing to be a rathe…
