    I did that too!

    My last "real" job I had ,I quit after the bosses denied my time off to attend my best friend's funeral...they said "go ahead,go if you like--but dont expect your job to be here when you come back"...I told them " I WONT BE back!"..
    ...then one says "We require two weeks notice if you plan to quit"..

    I replied with both my middle fingers,counted ONE--TWO!...and said "in 2 weeks you'll notice I'm STILL GONE!"...and walked out!...:D

    After all,they dont give YOU two weeks notice if your about to get fired,so why should WE give them 2 weeks notice??..every place I worked I DID give 2 weeks notice about leaving, never hired anyone until my last day!(but I was glad they didn't stick me with the "newbie" and have to train him during my last days there!)...:crazy:

    last place i quit i gave a week and a half, as it was all i could give. even gave them a name and phone number for a replacement. an old friend of mine who had been having trouble keeping jobs, and was ready to settle into something decent. they brought him in the day after i gave my notice for an interview before it was time to open, hired him on the spot, and he worked with me the rest of the day. i took him under my wing and showed him the ropes (after only being there for a month myself) gave him a few pointers on making the job go smoother, and what i do to keep a job. wouldn't you know it, in just over a month, it'll be 3 years, and he's still got the same job. i guess someone finally got through to him.

    Soory for the slow reply guy's, I'm still celebrating[sp]. Yea I was working for Steve at the atv rental and tow company. My straw was some a**hole that came in to the store with a tear in his eye[bawling like a school girl].Hey my motorhome w/ my elder parents in it, is washing out to sea. I was on the sand 10 min. earlier and saw it, but the tide was going out, and the Rangers had'nt called. So I have a bus load off rental people that have been waiting allready and I have to ask them for a couple more minutes.
    I open the store and in we go. The guy has no credit card[#required before you send out a 2-1/2 ton 4x4 wrecker], and no cell phone? Steve was in a good mood, and said cool. I go back out to the beach and here is A nice guy pulling the motorhome to the hardpack[I pull guys with the k5 on my day's off free cause it's fun]. When I pull up the cry baby, and his older parents were not happy but understanding.
    OKKKKK Then the guy that pulled them pulled back around and wanted to know why I was f**cking w/t the people he helped. The guy is like my age [old-hehe42] but the bad thing is he had a teenager 14-15 probabl. son with him. The guy went off on me and called me every name there is in front of the kid. I was cool and tried to calm him down. Guy just had to push it to far, and said something about I was afraid. So it ended up the guy was a loudmouth, and a fast runner! Phone's quick allso, the CHP and rangers showed up ASAP. The bad news is that guys son has to be messed up seeing this.
