Have you ever had a job where your boss was an ego-centric, power-hungry megalomaniac? Just a cruel tyrant who had no compassion or regard for others? He would call you any hour of the day or night and expect you to jump at his every request? She pitched a fit whenever she didn’t get what she wanted? He doesn’t care if you have a life and treated you like dirt, walking all over you (literally and figuratively)? And you asked yourself, “Why am I putting up with this? I don’t have to take these deplorable conditions.” And, so you finally decide to quit?
That’s what I did. I got sick of the poor treatment, the terrible hours, the abysmal pay. I was pushed to my limit, and finally one day I shouted, “I quit!” It felt good. I was so done with that place. Unfortunately, that place is my home, and I still live there with my tormentors, but at least I don’t have to work for them anymore. Let’s see how they like me now. They’ll regret how they’ve mistreated me. They’re gonna want me back. I know it. But if they do, they are going to have to come up with a pretty nice offer. And, I want a signing bonus.
If you’ve ever felt the same way about the maniacal despots bossing you around in your own home, you might enjoy my list, 25 Reasons I Quit My Job, over on Babble today. My hope is to embolden you and give you the support and encouragement you need to tell your bosses you quit.
Maybe we can even form a union.
If you like this, you’ll love I STILL JUST WANT TO PEE ALONE, the third installment in The New York Times best-selling series from some of the funniest women on the web. What I’m trying to say is, I’m in this book. Buy it, ok? Get it on Amazon, Kindle, iTunes and Barnes and Noble, and I will love you forever.
