    So I worked at a pool hall.

    The manager was just a selfish **** who hated pool players. At the busiest night of the year, he decides to leave me and one other person working the counter. Before that, my co worker who has been a stellar teammate left for his 30min break. The manager's 17year old kid and...

    Freedom- Nothing Left To Lose

      I walked out on a job. I was a good employee, but when I found out my boss was gossiping about me- I was done. At first I was a bit nervous, but the next morning when I did not have to return I felt freedom. I wrote my ex boss a nice direct letter and than called her...

    **** You, **** You, **** You, Your Cool - I'm Out

    The general manager of the place I was working at is a huge b*tch. And I don't throw insults around on the regular. I have thick skin so it is pretty difficult for someone to damage my composure (in a restaurant of all places - like I give a sh*t I break too many glasses...
