FML - The follow-up

Today, I realized I'm so scared of my manager that I don't even dare to quit my job. The same job I want to quit exactly because I'm so scared of her. FML

outthelabyrynth Say more :
First things first: I'm a girl, and I'm not a prostitute. (That would pay much better, though) I work at a restaurant with several managers who are all quite nice, but she's the boss of the whole restaurant so she's in charge of everything. Now the thing is, she's quite nice to everyone... Except to me. I don't know what she has against me, but working with her is like getting a constant shitstorm over you. Always mean comments, giving me the worst tasks, and no matter how I improve myself, it's never good enough. She keeps telling me I'm too stupid to work there (which I'm not, I have higher qualifications than everyone there, but I need the money to save up for college) and when other people make a mistake, she blames me for it. At this restaurant, when you want to quit, you have to tell her personally. The worst she can do is indeed yell at me. I'm not a shy person, but when people get angry at me or start yelling, I get really quiet and submissive and I feel like shit. I'll probably search for another job first, and then make up a believable story for why I want to quit, so she can't get too mad at me. Thanks for all the support and I'll do my best to stand up!

Sometimes you have to think of your safety first. I realized after I was hired that I was working for a mafia money laundry business. And I started to hear what they did to people they got mad at. It took me a bit to get out of there without pissing them off.

I don't know why people say "grow some balls" and "you're a pussy" when someone's scared. Idk last time I checked balls are sensitive as and vaginas are tough enough to push human footballs out of. Ironic...

It saddens me that these are thoughts people have. Why not work for a living? Pull your own weight in this world !!! Stop expecting others to pay your way.

Depending on the state you live in you can in fact get unemployment bc i was let go for missing time due to a medical issue and i was able to collect. You can't get unemployment if u quit your job though...good luck OP!

Why would any responsible adult QUIT or purposefully be fired from one job before having something else lined out. I've hated many jobs but done them to support myself and my family. Being fired legitimately or laid off is another story and I am not looking down on or snubbing anyone who has or is on unemployment. I'm just saying it shouldn't be a job CHOICE.

No, a text would be unprofessional. The words, "I quit" on a Unicorn printed sticky-note is unprofessional. The last I checked, Emails are quite the opposite of those examples..
