Ever been to a job and said fuck it, I’m going out on my own terms.

My job was very demanding on the body.

Removing packages from a trailer and putting them on a conveyor belt.

Dude I was slowing down cause it was getting hotter.

So my boss gave an ultimatum. Speed down or move to load side

Load side is moving boxes into trailer trucks. It’s more difficult.

I quit.

I've quit a few jobs in my lifetime, mostly due to not liking the hours, bad working conditions or not enough pay for the job. Every job I quit, I moved up to a better job along the way.

I had several jobs when I was going through high school in my teens. One summer I worked in a cold storage facility that dealt mainly in chicken packaging, receiving and shipping. One of my jobs was to take whole fryers and cut them up into individual pieces and I got so damn good at it I could take a whole chicken and just using a butcher knife I'd cut it up into individual pieces in under a minute per bird------2 wings, 2 legs, 2 thighs, 2 breasts and the backs got tossed.

It was a great job in the summer time since I was in the cold storage building all day long but had to go home to a house with no A/C back then.

For 2 summers I worked for a boat launch 5 days a week and would put in between 70-80 hours. We'd open at 5 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. but there were ALWAYS some SOB that would not be back by 7 and someone would have to wait so we could pick up their boat with the hoist to load on their trailer. Back then I was making a whopping $1.50 an hour.

One of my jobs was with a trucking company doing like @DobyZhee with loading and unloading semi's all day long. We'd unload trucks of incoming goods and stack the goods on the dock, only to be sorted and loaded on trucks heading out for delivery. Cold as hell during the winter months and hot as hell in the summer.

If it wasn't for the fact that companies are desperate for labor right now you are generally fucking yourself by quitting one job before you have another lined up.

Worked on trawlers and crabbers for a good few years so no also worked as a motorbike messenger in London in the 80's. Am fairly confident Doby would die within a day doing either job.

Yes, it's the reason why I got into investing. I wouldn't be able to last in my old career anymore

Depends how much money you have in the bank.

It's always good to have a year's wages saved so that if push came to shove, you could tell the boss to stick it and walk out. I've done that a few times, it's so satisfying to see the looks on their faces when you quit, they think you don't have the guts to do it.

And with money you have time to find another job. I see it as security. That way no boss can ever hold it over you. It's also why I don't have any debt, like a mortgage.

Once a boss know you're laden down with debt they know they can treat you badly because you can't just up and leave. I've had bosses actually admit that.

I walked out on two warehouse jobs.

Managers were dickheads so I just never turned up for my next shift. that was in the 90s.

There's no reason to be tied up to a job nowadays especially. All you need is a computer and you can buy and sell shit online for a profit with no skill whatsoever.

Well tomorrow is the big day that I don’t go to work.

It’s only going to be 113 degrees outside.

On one hand I feel bad that I’m not going to work, on the other, I see no point in working in this weather.

Why don't you just quit? Filipino men have a bad reputation of being laze, and you are just perpetuating the stereotype. Why don't you just study IT? All you need is a Security+ certificate to be considered for a job at one of the military bases
You are getting older, dude. You need to work smarter, not harder.
