If you hate or job, or even if you only hate it sometimes, you've probably at some point had the urge to just say "f*ck it!" and quit on the spot. No consideration. No 2-weeks notice. Just "hasta la vista, baby!" Maybe your boss is a jerk. Maybe your job is degrading and underpaid. Or maybe you just can't handle the sound of your co-worker slurping her coffee. Whatever the final straw may be, for some employees, angrily quitting on the spot without giving any notice was more than a fantasy—they actually did it! #brave
1.) From Rainydays206:
I was fractured my orbital socket in an industrial accident. Another employee lost focus at the wrong time was supposed to wait for a hand signal and didn't. We had been working over 90 days straight of 13-14 hour shifts and living in crappy motel a 45 min drive from out worksite. We were supposed to be on a rotation were we didn't work more than 3 weeks at a time. It was a close call and could have been alot worse. I'm glad I "saw it coming" and had time to at least try and get out of the way.
I got sent away after a night in the ER while the rest of that crew continued to work. After spending 2 or 3 days at home the boss called to say that he "needed me in Alaska" in 2 days and that my flight was already booked. Told him I quit right on the spot.
