If you've ever worked a job that killed your soul (or body), it's likely you've daydreamed of quitting. Verbally abusive managers, rude customers, and bad pay are all factors that can feed into the burning desire to throw financial caution to the wind and end it all right there.
While most of us don't fully snap and live out the cinematic quitting story we've daydreamed of, some people have, and hearing their stories can be cathartic for anyone in the pits of job despair.
I used to work in a mall record store. I worked with a fellow every day for about a year, often exchanging complaints about our awful work situation and terrible manager, collectively daydreaming about leaving someday. One fine day he casually walked up to me and said, "I'm gonna go get a soda at the food court. Want anything?" I said, "Nah, I'm good."
