Well I Finally Did !!!! So Now What?

After putting up with my boss that was out of control for way to long with no hep in sight I finally QUIT my job!! I had gone as high up as I could and no one really seemed to care what she did and I know why they didn't. I could no longer be stressed out everyday all day and the constant calls and texts even when I wasn't at work were driving me crazy. She knew how to hit every nerve that a person has and she has to make sure that she puts you down so she can feel better about herself. She tried to make everyone at work hate each other but luckily me and one other girl remained friends through it all and have tried to no end to make sure that no one else has to go through what we did. We tried every agency there was but they all require the company have more than 15 employees and we didn't so they were of no help. The company I worked for was a franchise though so we knew that there was certain standards they had to uphold and there were certain illegal things going on that we knew about!! After me and my friend quit we ended up being able to talk to someone pretty high up in the corporate company and tell him what we knew!! I bet it was a big shock to them when he showed up at their counter!! For what I hear she was cussing us up one side and down the other!!! After quitting I went back to school and am now hoping to find a better job with a lot less drama. I will never again let myself go through something like that again and why I took it for so long I will never understand. I know that the money was good but not good enough to ruin my how life outside of work. I am sure it will be a long time to come before all the anger I have for her will be gone and I can finally put it all behind me. I can't wait for the day that I can look back and laugh knowing that her life is the one falling down around her now and she doesn't have many people that are going to be there for her after what she has done to so many. I know that day is soon to come and hopefully she will see what pain she has caused for way to long.

Hey, I'll never understand why some bosses are so mean. You'd think they would be humble in a position of authority and want to treat their employees well - I know I would. I've also worked for some miscreant bosses, and eventually left. Gosh, if I wanted to be mistreated, I could hang out at a park at night with a bunch of vagabonds. Congrats for leaving that place.

I have been in the same situation. I didnt do anything and now after being away from that job for 3 years I have heard that the manager has finially gotten her's she is under investiagation for embezelment as well as for hiring undocumented employees. I was suprised to hear that she is looking at jail time for her actions. Maybe I should not have quit and just gave up the way I did. Congrats to you for what you have accomplished. Your right no one should have to deal with that triying to make a living. Its so wrong.

Well, I can understand why you want to quit, I've been in the same situation before. It's really a pain to stay. But considering today's recession problem, shouldn't you do that after you got another job? Well, what had been done been done, so I guess I should cheer you up so you can find a new job soon. Hopefully it won't take long.
