Some jobs just plain suck. This is especially true when the employer flat-out lies on the application, promising a much better experience than what they can offer. We could all use a little extra money in our pockets, but there’s a limit to the amount of mistreatment that we can take to make that money. These Redditors have been through exactly the same struggles, and when they couldn’t handle it they stood up for their rights and told their employers, “No”. If you’re stuck in a crappy job, take inspiration from these 42 hero quitters who shared their stories of the fastest times they’ve ever quit a job.

1. Mic Drop

I worked in a bar with an awful boss. He would always flirt with the young female bar staff and make us all uncomfortable, even though he was 50 years old. We all knew his wife and two young children, but about six months into me working there he began to “date” a 22-year-old customer.

By date, I mean he used to go downstairs to his office and sleep with her—all while he was on shift. No one was allowed to talk about it but we all knew. He knocked her up quite quickly and ended up breaking up with his wife, but he still flirted with his staff relentlessly even when his new baby was born.

He once told a male employee that he liked asking female bar staff to pick up things from low shelves so we would bend over and he could check out our butts.

He always broke health and safety rules if he could get out of doing a task he didn’t want to. He was prolific at asking bar staff to clean human waste—vomit/poop customers had done on the floor—even though legally anyone cleaning that stuff needed to have passed a certain health and safety qualification. I spoke to my assistant manager about this and she confirmed that only management can do it, and I should refuse next time.

One day he demanded I cleaned up vomit in the male toilets, and I refused, repeating what the assistant manager told me. My boss went absolutely mad—he wasn’t used to people standing up to him. He told me to come downstairs to his office to speak about it.

At that moment I knew I wanted to quit, so I told him I won’t be going downstairs with him. He asked me why, and I replied: “The last girl who went down there with you ended up getting pregnant”.

Lost my job instantly but it was totally worth it.
