What is your breaking point??

Recently I put my 2 weeks notice in at my part time job. I have never just walked out or quit a job without at least giving 2 weeks usually more notice. But this time was different. Aparently another waitress, who had been a long time friend outside of the job, had went to our boss and told her I was quiting. I'm not exactly sure what was said, because when I went into work that day my boss went off on me, cussing at me, calling me names all in front of my customers. I have taken a lot of crap from a lot of jobs, especially this one. But to be treated like that over, I don't even know what, was just nuts. So, I just walked out. Didn't say bye to anyone. I just grabbed my stuff and left. I think back and a part of me wishes I would have went off on her right back, but I didn't. I kept my cool. I waited a few days and tried to contact my old boss just to find out what happened. I have a feeling the other waitress went to her and told her things. Lies probably. I'm not sure what. She won't return my phone calls either. It really hurts because I thought just a few days ago she was one of my best friends. And a 10 year friendship ended over a job, that I didn't even want anymore.

One thing I despise is the fact that a person will mess you up and have you lost a job. I have no respect for that. Even if She knew that you were leaving, that was no one's business but yours and for you to tell her. I don't like that. I'm sorry that things went to that point, but I hope whatever it is, things can be resolved.

You have a right to be treated with respect, but I think the boss probably feels that way, too. So you should have let the boss know what happened before you left. By leaving the way you did, the other person got to tell her side and you never had the chance to tell yours. When I go somewhere and hear such things, I don't think anything bad about the person being yelled at, I think the person who is doing the yelling is an idiot. Too bad I wasn't there, I could have helped you. I had someone do that to me, too. So I smiled sweetly and said, "I love you, too!" Then I walked away and went on with my job. The person followed me around studdering. Everyone laughed at her. I basically said the same back at her without saying the same back at her. Always try for a classy, amusing reply. It shows everyone what you're made of and what kind of lowlife the other person is. Take care and better luck next time at your future job.
