TikTok user Alia (@a.dakota2) was filming from inside an office as she shared her thoughts on using her paid time off immediately after giving her two-week notice. She received a good amount of support from netizens after she requested PTO after submitting her resignation notice two weeks prior. "Was it deranged an out of pocket? Maybe. But was it real as f*ck? Absof*ckinglutely," Alia said, mouthing along to a viral TikTok audio. She captioned the video clip that received 31 thousand views, "All jokes aside, this is your sign to utilize that PTO! Especially when leaving a toxic workplace!"

Alia explains in a later video that she left her job after only six months because she began to notice that the work environment and how she felt were very similar to her previous toxic job. She claimed that she was frequently exhausted for "no reason," to the point where she didn't have the energy to do the things she cared about. She went on to say that her coworkers were surprised when she left and that she has already secured a new job that she is excited about.

"Let me tell you one thing about a toxic work environment," she says in the video. "That stuff sticks with you. You think you leave it in the office. You think it’s done when you close your laptop, but truly, it permeates every aspect of your life. All the things that make me me, I wasn't doing."

Commenters also mentioned that they used their PTO before leaving a job. Others claimed they were not permitted to take time off after giving their two weeks' notice. "Me using my PTO then resigning effective immediately when I came back," commented @relaxx_its_tiff. "I used all my hours over the span of a month to quiet quit," wrote @dorthefish. "USE THAT PTO BEFORE you give notice lmao. Plenty of places will not allow this and will make u leave immediately," shared @ironheart2222. "We can’t use PTO after we give notice. So I’ll probably just use it all before, give notice, and then call out for 2 weeks," added @anon

Workers are no longer accepting a workplace with toxic environments and one too many red flags. TikTok user @adminandeve declined an on-the-spot job offer after she spotted many red flags in the workplace. Her would-be boss did not behave very well with his recent employees. "I walk in and sit outside his office," the TikTok user explained. “And he’s immediately berating someone for 15 minutes before my interview.” He was even passive-aggressive and not "very nice" to his employee as he handed out paperwork to her, she said.

The boss even asked her a question that indicated he was interested in knowing if she was pregnant. “One of the questions on this weird paper was ‘Do you have any upcoming life events?" she shared, adding that she came to know that her assumption was correct. “Sure enough, I get in there and he’s like ‘Well my last assistant, had to let her go,'” she said. "'She got pregnant, had a kid, had to start working from home and that doesn’t work for me.'" Every workplace has its own set of issues but when it gets toxic, it's not worth your time.
