When was the last time you've done something rebellious?

In every person, there will always be that rebellious side waiting to come out if baited with the right provocation. This happened last week. I was provoked when my boss kept on nagging me about my work, telling me how to do my work, and complaining what I do with my work. It was very irritating and degrading. What I did was I skipped work the next day. I'm usually uptight, and I take my job seriously. I always come diligently to work and focus on what I have to do. My previous bosses were very appreciative of that. My current one was not. Anyway, my co-workers were then like, "Hey, Boss was looking for you yesterday! He was so angry and upset why you skipped work without calling or texting." And I was like smiling the entire shift. Of course, he was at it again, nagging me and whining. But oddly, it didn't affect me. At least I didn't say something that would be considered as talking back to your boss. I just walked away and I didn't even care about the consequences at that time. I guess I wasn't so uptight anymore.

Rebellion aside, it sounds like the man you're working for has a problem. He's creating a 'hostile environment.' Are you the only one picks apart like that? Does he treat others that way? As far as having a rebellious side, yes I do. Only it isn't very wide. I almost laughed out loud when I read your title. I work at a retail store in the mall. When I work the morning shift we always get there way before the mall opens. There isn't a soul in the parking-lot. Where I turn in there is a sigh that says 'Do not enter', so I don't enter. I drive down a few yards and turn in there. Well, when my narrow, rebellious streak flares up, I'll drive in the 'Do not enter' drive instead. Sometimes I even laugh at myself. And that's about as far as my rebellion goes. I hope you're able to straighten out that boss of yours. If your prior employers were happy with you; it has to be him not you.
