I quit my job this week. I had to have a required surgery and biopsy following some health problems i’ve had. I had medical leave covered, I always provided notes and documentation that HR accepted no problem. My (male) boss CONSTANTLY had issues with it the second he found out it had to do with a uterine problem. Telling me that if “I wasn’t dying” I needed to come in. Well I started having complications from surgery and my doctor wanted me in and he argued with me up and down, saying I just wanted time off. After being in pain and exhausted that he was the only one who argued it, I quit.

#10 “there’s more to the story than just her refusing to use the scheduling app. on the Tuesday mentioned, she called a meeting where she told me to stop pulling expired food off our shelves “because it counts as shrink” and I decided that was disgusting enough I wasn’t going back. took me until last night to be absolutely sure I wasn’t going back.”

#15 “I quit a job in May because they were severely underpaying me and missed two years worth of scheduled raises with an excuse popping up every time. Left for a job that paid me double but unfortunately just went out of business Thurs. Got this response to my Instagram story from old job manager today. “

#19 “Walked out mid shift in August because my coworker was being a dick, texted my boss to let him know. It was a decent place to work and bossman was chill. Hadn’t had any issues with my coworker until that night.

I asked him to apologize and he refused, so I left. Coworker popped off and said that “I can’t be the only one doing anything here, fucking do something.” When I was literally working side by side with him for the passed 5 hours, sweating my ass off. We were like 15 tickets deep. I was like “What?”, he responded “I’m doing this all by myself.” I asked him for an apology, he said “Fuck no.” We got like 10 tickets out of the way and the rush died down, so he went to smoke without saying anything and left me with the 5 tickets. I finished those 5 tickets, packed up my shit, walked out the back door and he was lighting a 2nd cigarette and talking on the phone. I interrupted him and said “Now you’re doing everything by yourself.” Got a new job now, part time, a $6/hour pay increase and cut my commute down from a 13 mile bike ride to 2 miles, the boss pays everyone a damn decent wage and everyone is appreciated”

#24 “Quit my shitty Job of Ten Years.”

Image source: Iquitmyjobbytext

I finally quit my shitty job at a non for profit where I and just one other case manager were responsible for 400 clients and the only other employees were outsourced workers from the Philippines. 52k a year and no benefits. The only benefit I had was Fridays off. And they tried to take that away too (unpaid bc they claim that we are salaried exempt tho legally we don’t make enough to be considered exempt in NYC) I’m sad to have to end my ten year career there in this way and they have def been trying to provoke me to quit so they wouldn’t have to pay unemployment and I let them win. But oh well. In a few months, I’ll be in a better spot. ”

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
