special20: Why be worried about burning bridges when where you came from was crappy anyway?Spray paint is worthless unless it is used as a fire starter. Next time, just burn the guy's car down.Less evidence. Bridge burning bonus.
holdmybones: I've had two memorable quits.First was at a golf course when I was in college. Boss was an asshole and I'd had enough so I loaded my cart up with various work equipment and left it randomly around the course. Then I parked the cushman (cart) off in a field and walked to my car. Left and never went back.A few years later.....I was working a field sales gig and had a huge asshole as a boss (imagine that). I'd finally had enough and decided the job wasn't at all for me, right as he scheduled a visit to town for customer visits. I told him not to worry about renting a car and sent a full two day itinerary (completely made up and geographically impossible to keep). I called hr and put in my resignation while he was in the air. He called my phone for about two hours and then either figured it out or hr called and told him. I had only been there for a short time and it has nothing to do with my current career so I've never had to explain it.
NotThatGuyAgain: Because doing so has a bad habit of biting you in the ass later.

Bridge burning bonus.Because doing so has a bad habit of biting you in the ass later.A guy I worked with gave notice and became an unsufferable prick until mamagement told him to GTFO. Dude was all "HA HA I'm getting a week's pay for freeeeee." His next job didn't work out and he had the balls to try to get his old job back (ha ha indeed). The next couple of places had people who knew some of our people and he didn't get those jobs either.It's far better to not burn bridges.
wildcardjack: Karma has closed the businesses I left. I don't have to seek anything more.
gopher321: Hmmm...no job, and now facing vandalism / public mischief charges.[img.fark.net image 587x408]
Blake Superior: Always be suspicious of applicants who have had multiple " boss was a real a-hole" stories.
