I've also done it twice... I kinda hate myself for it too because it is such a sh*tty thing to my co-workers and bosses - who I had literally no problems with up until I, well, stopped showing up to work. My one boss even left me like 3 voicemails to at least let him know if I was 'coming back'... I never got back to him, I honestly feel bad about it

I did that at my first job as a cashier at a grocery store. Had to stand on my feet all day couldn't do it. Just stopped showing up after about a month and a half. They called seeing what's up, I told them someone called me to tell me I was fired. They're like uhh no, no one did and you're not fired. I'm like uhh, I kinda already made arrangements for the next 6months. Which was true, to get high and play ball lol

I've never done that and I've had some really awful jobs.

I worked one summer as a flagger for the Ohio Department of Transportation. The worst parts of that particular job...

1. I had to be there at, like 5:30 in the morning.

2. Job was dangerous as hell. Often times, I had to stand at a bend on some desolate road where cars routinely fly by without paying much attention to what's in the road.

3. Part of the job description included scraping up roadkill. The day I decided to formally quit, I had to help a guy clear a dead deer off the road my gloved hands.

4. Ohio summers can be brutally hot and we were often asked to weed whack endless miles of roadway medians.


I quit that job and immediately became freezer clerk for Phar-Mor. Basically had to spend all day in giant refrigerators/freezers restocking merchandise. My boss was a real stickler and would come around for inspections. If we were low on frozen pees, milk... whatever... I got b!tched at.

Summer jobs in general weren't much fun.

The first job I Office Spaced so hard I didn't even go back to pick up my check. They tried getting ahold of me and I ignored them. Eventually they mailed it to me.

The second job I Office Spaced, which is more regretful than the first one, I didn't even go in to pick up my personal belongings. They tried getting ahold of me too. At one point I got a flood of texts and Facebook messages saying shit like "OMG they're cleaning out your desk", "Dude WTF", and people saying they'd miss me. Eventually they mailed my things to me after repeated attempts to contact me. Two large boxes worth.

I don't feel bad about the first one. But yeah, I feel similarly about the second one.

At least they mailed you your stuff, now that I recall, I had a locker full of stuff and a cereal bowl I kept there - never got any of it back, but I don't think I deserved it for giving them the shady dip anyways

My first job, a bag boy a King Soopers.

Felt like a mindless drone just like the start of Office Space.

Ended up quitting after I got yelled at by telling a sick person they should go home because he was caughing on everything.

Told the front manager to suck a dick and took off my apron and screamed go to Wal-Mart their deals a better.

was glorious.

Has anyone ever pulled a Larry David? When he was a writer for SNL he got pissed at Lorne Michaels when one of his skits got cut after dress rehearsal for like the 3rd week in a row. He made a big scene and left in the middle of the show. As he's walking out of Rockefeller Center he calms down and realizes that he has a mortgage, car payment, etc., and that his wife is gonna be pissed. So when the work week started back (Tuesdays for them) he just showed up for work like nothing happened. No one ever said a word to him about it. He later used that incident for a Seinfeld episode.

I have. I called the boss a "fgt" too. He must've been a real one, because he ever said sh*t to me about it. He looked at me weird on Tuesday (long weekend), but that's it...
