Quitting a job on-the-spot without giving two weeks notice can have major consequences for future employment opportunities. So most people don't quit a job this way, no matter how tempting it may be at times to just drop everything and walk out mid-shift, making a grand exit and leaving papers scattered in your wake. But sometimes, a job pushes someone too far and they throw caution to the wind and quit like there's no tomorrow.
In a popular Reddit thread, someone asked people who've walked out of a job on-the-spot: "what happened?"
The owner of the small firm I was working for was sexist, racist and homophobic. Things had been bubbling up for a while but things came to a head when he accused a project manager of using company time to go on a date because he had met a prospective client at an LGBTQ+ networking event.
