A Redditor recently posted about working a minimum wage job and getting in trouble for taking a 3-minute bathroom break. This feels like audacity on a whole different level.

‘Did I just get fired?’: Retail employee isn't scheduled for 3 weeks, wonders if she's being passively fired, internet suggest she just quit

So, you finally landed a job—congrats! You've done a few days of training already and now you're ready to get into the nitty gritty of it. But, oh wait, what's this? You aren't on the schedule… You ask again and again when you're working, and nothing. Then they slap you with the “not on the schedule for multiple weeks.” Unfortunately, this is all too familiar a situation in careers like customer service and retail. One retail employee recently took to Reddit in the midst of confusion when she w…

'She called 8 times in the run of 24 hours:' Restaurant employee no-call/no-shows for her shifts, refuses to believe the manager when he tells her she's fired

Oh no, if it isn't the consequences of your actions! What a surprise… NOT. Yeah, I brought back that joke. Because it truly should not be a surprise. When you do something, like flake on committed plans, then you're going to have to suffer the consequences of your actions. Funny enough, this employee was aghast when she was faced with the outcome of her actions. She no-called/no-showed for her restaurant shift. If you don't t know what that is, it's basically self-explanatory. It's when you don…

‘They paid me $50,000… So, I [quit] and found more’: Company who denied a raise has to contract ex-salesforce admin back for 3x his old salary because they can't retain a new employee for more than 3 weeks

Ever heard the saying, “spending dollars to save pennies”? It means you're putting more effort in than you're actually getting out. So if you spend $5 to save .50¢, it's not really a savings, is it? For some reason, this doesn't compute to some companies when it comes to power play. They'd rather seem like the one that holds all the power than give you a raise. One post on the subreddit r/sysadmin has the comment section of a lifetime. They asked if anybody had quit a tech job where the company…

'I picked up my bags and left': Shy 21-year-old salesgirl keeps getting unfairly reprimanded by her older manager, so she quits on the spot

If you are riddled with anxiety and think of yourself as a shy person (like many people in the world), then sometimes it's hard to do things that you know will benefit you. Sometimes you just want to drop everything and walk away like it never even happened. For example, putting in your two weeks. In this case on Reddit, this salesgirl was only 21 years old and very very shy. Apparently, the optical store she works out asks for a two-month notice, which is insane. Luckily, that is just the cour…

‘I [said] $200 per hour… minimum 4 hours’: Senior admin quits after denied a raise, company can't function without him and has to agree to 5x his initial salary

It's not always easy to take the high road, but when it comes to your career, it's important to choose that path. Like I said, it's not easy, but if you don't you could ruin your whole career. Sure, it would be way more satisfying to burn some bridges and tell all those incompetent coworkers and upper management off, but you just have to walk away and hope for better thing. Sometimes, however, your high road still leads to a satisfying ending. For example, the reddit post this senior admin comm…

‘I had been sleeping in the office working nonstop’: Software administrator rescues company's data, only gets $625 and a below-market raise, so he quits

Too often do employees give company's their 100%, only to get the company's 1% in return. It really sours your view on job searching. You want to find the job of your dreams and make a fulfilling career out of it, but if they people running it are just using and abusing you, then it might be time to move on to big and better things. That's exactly what this software administrator did, as explained in their two-parter Reddit post. Their initial post was from several years ago, when they were fir…

'I was going to give you my 2 week's notice today, but I'm just done': Non-profit director quits on the spot, provides manager with a list of all their incompetence

Quitting isn't usually as explosive as the movies make it seem. It's not usually just someone at their wits end completely losing it and leaving all the burned bridges in their path. Usually, people planning on quitting try to take the high road and will put in a two week's notice and try to wrap things up so there are no loose ends after they leave, etc. etc. That is totally out of professionalism and not because you have to. But sometimes, it really is that abrupt. When you are working for so…
