Everyone has a limit.
However, it appears that higher-ups frequently forget this when it comes to their employees. They go on a power trip and regularly berate their employees for the smallest of reasons just to show off. Even the highest-paid and most hardworking people are not immune to this type of thing. But everyone has a limit, and when that limit is crossed, it is easy to become irritated, regardless of how well you get along with your coworkers or how much you are paid. I understand that money is important, but if you have the option, your mental health is clearly far more important. We’ve forgotten that life doesn’t revolve around work these days.
We get up every day to go to work, and most of the time it isn’t something we want to do, but it is something we have to do so that the lights in our homes stay on. However, this guy was tired of being insulted at every turn and being treated like garbage despite the fact that he was doing so much for this company. So when he finally reached his breaking point, he decided enough was enough. As you might expect, the higher-ups were caught off guard and were forced into a damage-control mode just to keep him.
You can read the entire story by scrolling down. You should probably get some popcorn because things are about to get juicy.
The one posting the story is the guy in question but we still get a very detailed explanation.
Steve seems like a very reliable guy and he was always helping his teammates.
He also had to pick up the slack many times but he always did it with a smile on his face.
So when the holidays came, he was fine with working overtime.
Things were going well and he was about to go home when the manager came sauntering in.
But Steve didn’t care and went home anyway.
As you can expect, higher-ups don’t like it when they can’t dominate someone.
So when he came in, they berate him and handed him a write-up.
What they didn’t expect was that he would respond with a quitting notice.
Now, they were in damage control and trying to take back everything.
We also get a bit more information on Steve and how he worked overtime.
All I can say is that I am glad Steve stood up for himself.
It is not surprising that things like this happen a lot more than we think.
Commission-based jobs where you have to call people can put a lot of pressure on you.
Some managers let the power get to their head and they end up burned.
I know we all want to do something like this, but not everyone has the opportunity. Personally, I have done something similar in which I quit on the spot after being chastised by my boss, and it was the most glorious feeling ever. Have you ever been in a situation like this before? If so, how did that go for you? Let us know in the comments, and don’t forget to share this story with your friends so they can get some satisfying justice as well.
