Depew, NY is a town of less than 16,000 people.

Stuff like this IS big news in small towns.

The employee left a message on the fast food restaurant's exterior sign Thursday night announcing they quit. The sign reads, "I quit - Adam / **** you :)"

To the author of TFA:

Clearly Adam is male, and singular. You, however, are an idiot who is clearly overpaid. I wouldn't pay you half of minimum wage to write for me, considering.

Please go fark yourself with a giant dildo with the word "they" written on it with a Sharpie.

Sincerely,
HBS

Except for one store, I've never been to a Taco Bell where the employees were happy to be there.

That exception is Totem Lake's Taco Bell where the Mexican manager really does a great job of keeping the atmosphere lively and happy. You wouldn't expect any especially memorable meal at Taco Bell, but Jose made the whole experience great.

Still, I got the runs from the food, so say la vie.

And because most of us have wanted to do this, but how few, how very very few have had the balls to actually do it.

This is a Real American Hero (tm) and we salute you. Of course, you'll never work in Depew again, but enjoy your notoriety just the same.

Um. Adam is the asshole manager, not the person who quit. '...he or she quit.' would be appropriate still, of course, but...

Ok, my mistake.

I'll still lay you 20:1 odds that the "they" who quit so spectacularly was sill male. (And not plural.)

Don't feel bad. I had to read the sentence 5 times to understand what the author was trying to say. If he had the skills I'd expect to see in a writer for a high school newspaper, it might have been more clear.

No, it's not.

What are you, some kind of self-entitled pussy?

Many of us worked shiatty jobs like the one described, where working every farking weekend and holiday (probably the night shift, to boot) was expected. Those of us who managed to get educated and/or do a good job and move on to something better have a reasonable expectation of having holidays off work and making a decent salary.

Man up, Nancy. Pay your dues. Then you can afford to take it easy every now and then.

A co-worker of the supposed sign maker at Taco Bell/KFC tells News 4 that apparently Adam is the name of a shift manager at the restaurant who denied the worker the Fourth of July off after they had worked 22 days straight, despite allowing others to have the day off.

I'm not even supposed to be here today.

I think this is great. However, what I don't understand is why the worker just didn't show up for work on the 4th of July. He could have probably kept his job, seeing as he was needed in the store for 22 days straight, I'd assume he isn't easily replaceable. And if they fired him, he gets unemployment. And seeing as he quit, it doesn't seem likely he is concerned about his economic situation. Quitting is the worst thing you can do when you are in a bad work situation.

The best thing to do is not care, not show up, and don't take things seriously. You'll drag out your employment, have fun, and when they fire you, you get unemployment!

-Cheers!

The manager who had an employee work 22 straight days needs to be fired.

Working in a position where you're having to deal with dick customers is bad enough. Worse when you're getting paid minimum wage. Even worse when you think about how you'd rather be scrubbing the toilets in said Taco Bell than dealing with some of those customers and their snow flake can do nothing wrong children, but to do that for 22 straight days and be told "no" when you request a day off proves that the manager in question (sign could be taken that it was written by Adam or directed towards Adam) needs to either be fired or busted down to entry level drive thru order taker.

Now, for those who don't know, let me explain why 22 days straight sucks. Assuming this guy is full time, and assuming all 22 hours were at least 6 hours (full time retail/fast food hours), this guy worked more than 15 hours of over time per paycheck at one job. The tax man taxes at a higher percentage when you do that. Yes, working more than fifteen hours of over time per pay period will cause you to be taxed at a higher level. So really, not only did he give more of his life to this restaurant, but the manager actually cost him money. I actually didn't learn this until my now wife, then girlfriend, worked for Fidelity and learned some tax codes and rules.

In truth, this guy should have been on the phone to the corporate office or to the District Manager filing complaints against his manager. Not for the Forth of July thing, it's retail/fast food, you can't really count on getting holidays off, but for the 22 straight days. Also an OSHA complaint.

/works in the corporate headquarters of a retail company
//when I get bad service somewhere I know that going to the District Manager is better than going to the Store Manager.
