Many of us have quit a job at one point or another. I know someone who got mad at his boss one day and simply walked out the door. I know more than a few people who have given up the corporate world to become a ski bum, a beach bum or another sort of bum. They didn't want the stress any longer and it wasn't worth the money.
In other cases, the work environment was difficult, at best. Co-workers were cranky and/or the boss was from hell. Other people quit for a better opportunity, more money or a move up the career ladder.
Site visitors have shared some of their reasons for quitting with us. Rita quit because she wasn't paid. That one is a no-brainer. Bully bosses were a reason several people decided to move on. Lousy pay, lack of a raise and not being appreciated, made the list, too.
