The first day of a new job is often challenging but it should also be exciting. You show up in a new outfit, brimming with hope and possibility, excited to find out which of your co-workers you can flirt with, and which ones you can talk sh*t about at the Keurig machine. Of course, first days can be rocky while you learn the ropes, but that's usually not a reason to throw in the towel. Unless things are really, really bad. Quitting a job is whatever. But quitting a job on the first day? That's a story.
Someone asked Reddit: "People who quit their jobs on the first day, what was your 'I’m outta here' moment?"
1.) From Facetiously_Serious:
Young and naïve right out of college took a “marketing” job. My interview was great, nothing shady seemed to be going on and no immediate red flags. After 4 hours of training, my first day consisted of going door to door in a suburban town trying to sell cable to older people. We were told to dress for business, so I’m hiking around for miles in my best skirt, suit jacket and heels. Hours were from “9-5” but we didn’t get back to the business until well after 10pm. Not to mention, the person I was shadowing was able to make a sale to an older gentleman who seemed to have memory issues. I noped the f**k right out of there.
