Screw-This-I-Quit-Stories-RedditWent into a meeting with my manager and shift leader, listed my grievances including a need to change work times. They nodded said suck it up and sign this form saying we talked. Knew it wasn't going to go anywhere so I left.
Screw-This-I-Quit-Stories-RedditI used to work for a big blue home improvement store in the paint department. Not the worst job in the world, but management was s@#t. I just so happened to be getting married later in the year, so about 6 months beforehand I put in my request for leave per the store managers instructions. I got no response from them then, and just figured it would be fine right? It came down to about a week before I was supposed to be married and go on my honeymoon, and I went to double check that my leave had been approved. I was told that it hadn't been approved, and that I was scheduled to work most days that I had requested off. I begged my case that I had put in my request for leave and followed all the proper channels, and was informed that they couldn't give me the time off because the manager of my dept. had requested off and it goes by seniority. I asked what would happen if I didn't show up, since I would be out of the country for my honeymoon, and was told that I would be fired and blacklisted from ever working for the company again. I told them I'd save them the trouble, and walked out right then and there.

People Who've Walked Out Of First Dates Share The Moment They Realized They Should Leave (40 Stories)
Screw-This-I-Quit-Stories-RedditWas volunteering in a local charity shop at the weekend. As it turns out, most of the non paid "volunteers" were conscripted from job seekers or community service or whatever. They had to turn up to get their welfare payments etc. Anyway I'd been there about 6 months, was hard graft at times moving sofas round the shop, up and down three floors. It was a nice sunny day and I was taking my lunch break out the back sitting on a sofa at the loading bay doors in view of a public car park, eating a sandwich with my feet up on the railing. All of a sudden some woman who I've never seen before starts waggling her finger at me like I'm a naughty kid, then shouting at me in a disgusting tone "get up young man, how dare you". She kept ranting on. I'm like who the hell is this. She get can f@#$%d. Slowly I get up and move inside. Turns out she was the area manager. She pissed me off so bad. I didn't really have an issue with what she was asking, it possibly didn't give a good impression, it was the way she was speaking to me I had a problem with. I think she thought I was the typical conscript who could be abused without recourse as they had to stay there and take the abuse in order to get their payments. Some customers in the shop heard how she spoke to me and they backed me up so I knew I wasn't nuts. Told her she could stick my volunteering and I got the hell out of there. Never went back. Made me think why should I give up my free time to help this b@#$h on a fat salary hit her targets. I doubt she had a charitable bone in her body. I wrote a two page letter of complaint to the head office but never did send it. Kind of regret that.
