A toxic work environment is a complete no-go for the current generation. Such a work environment is fueled by insensitivity and disrespect. According to a survey conducted by Glassdoor, most workers believe disrespectful managers to be the biggest reason behind their negative experiences in the workplace. Reddit user u/Hops-Barley went through something similar in her workplace that forced her to resign from her position. The Reddit user wanted to serve her notice period and leave the company. But after being pushed to the breaking point, she decided to throw caution at the wind and prioritize her mental health.

The user begins the post by specifying that she submitted her resignation following all the rules and regulations. After receiving her resignation, the boss of the establishment called her to the office in order to have a chat. The boss was empathetic and asked her if she had support at home as she could see that her employee was going through a tough time. Seeing her concern, the Reddit user felt bad for leaving but ultimately chose to stick with the decision as she was tired of the rude behavior of one of the managers. Several other employees had also left the establishment due to the rude manager in question.

u/Hops-Barley wanted the boss to have the conversation regarding her reason to leave, but the latter chose not to delve into that topic. She pushed the boss, but at the end of the day, after realizing that the latter did not care much about losing so many of her staff people, she decided to bury the topic and get out of the office.

She began serving her notice period and it was on her second-last day she decided to quit after getting pushed to her breaking point. On that day, a manager returned from vacation and treated her unkindly. The Reddit user assumed it was because she was leaving and therefore perhaps the manager thought she did not deserve positive treatment.

Refusing to be subjected to such behavior, she decided to quit that same day. She refused to return to a place that had no respect for her. She went ahead and informed her boss of the decision and immediately got a call. During the call, she realized the boss never knew she was resigning.

In her mind, it was a mental health break. It further disappointed the employee as her official letter of resignation was not given much importance. But she refused to let the establishment have the last word and emailed the entire ordeal to the company address so they would not paint her as the bad guy.

The thread immediately went viral with more than 18k upvotes. Most of the comments supported u/Hops-Barley as she prioritized herself and also gave it back to the company. Oldpuzzlehead believes it was the right call and commented, "Sounds like you made the right decision in leaving that toxic place. Good job sticking up for yourself." RevRagnarok thinks this situation called for an exit interview and wrote, "These are one of the few times I advocate for an exit Interview. Make sure HR knows with no ambiguity, you are leaving because of that woman."
