Ok so I really need some feedback.
So a couple of months ago I quit my full time job.
These are the events leading up to me quiting.
I had beeen trying to get some time off for a while and kept getting turned down for whatever reason but I allways had to cover for the other employees so that they could take their vacations. Wich I did'nt mind more hours = more pay. I needed some time to go volunteer at my favorite charity. So I went in to my bosses office and seen that the other manager from the other store was there also. I asked if I could have the dates that I needed off and with supprise I got them off(I think that it helped that I two fricken months in advance) after about a month she walks up to me and says that I can't halve the time due to scheduling issues. That put me in kind of a bind. I allready told the charity that I could vollunteer for them, and they had already set me up to manage my own area as I had in the past for their once a year events. I went to the manager and told her about my situationabout how I could'nt because it had already been set up. She said that there wasn't anything she could do about it. After about a weeek I talked to another coworker (who owed me a favor) about trading days with me so that I could have the time off. He agreed and we went to go see the manager about the trading days and she vetoed it. When I we asked her why she did'nt provide on. Lets just say I was a little p.o.ed. But that was the end of that. Me and a diffrent coworker I had before had a deal that she would clean the deli and I would clean the toilets and mop the floors (I preferd scrubbing toilets and moping floors and she preferd to do the dishes and clean the warmers.) Well when she got premoted to deli manager and the new guy came in I got put in charge of training him as usual. (I trained 5 people) I trained him on the deli and and the outside as its called. He seemed to be taking to the deli well and I thought that we might have a pact like the coworker before.
Fast forward to about two weeks before I quit. The manager calls me into the office and tells me that I haven't been doing deli, I said that she was correct. She asked me why I did'nt have an answer, cause I did'nt know why. She said that it was'nt fair to the other employees, I asked if any had complained. Hopeing that I had'nt upset my fellow employees. She said no but as punishment I was to do the deli for two weeks, and then go back and forth between out side and deli. I said ok that seems fair. So after I thought my two weeks was up, I did the outside and was going to do the deli the next day per her request. When I walked in the next day I was asked by the assistant manager(it was sunday and the manager doesn't work on the weekends) why didn't I do the deli last night? I replied because my two weeks was up and the manager wanted me to start rotating between duties. He told me that they were'nt. I said yes they where. He replied no they were'nt. I replied yes they were the manager told me three f**king fridays ago therefore my two weeks where up last friday. He said no they were'nt, and proceded to tell me that I was to complete two more weeks of deli. Seeing how I was going to do deli that night anyway I did deli. the next morning(my day off) I went in to the office thinking that she made a mistake and forgot wich day she told me. I went in and asked what's this about my two weeks not being up? She said that I hadn't completed my two weeks. I asked what do you mean? I went from friday to friday to friday, thats two weeks is'nt it. She said well yes, but you didn't work all forteen days. What do you mean I asked? She said that I was to have completed forteen days of deli(somthing she did NOT specify on our last little meeting). I told her that I didn't realize that she wanted me to work forteen days total, and that I would be more than happy to complete the other for days. She said no that what i did was insabordination, and that I was lucky that I wasn't being fired. Whoah! whoah! whoah! over a simple misunderstanding you would fire me I replied. She retorted that there was no misunderstanding, and that yes she could. (What happend next hurt but before I go on I need to take you back about six months before, when she was still an assistant manager and we were still friends) It was shift change and me her and two other employees had just heard a report about cyber bullying, We talked about how we didn't have that back then. Each one shared their bullying experiences and it was my turn. So I told them about how a kid brought dental floss on the buss and twisted it together and made garat wire out of it. as i started to pass out the buss driver grabed the kid and chucked him over a cupple of seats. He got in trouble and I feel bad about that. My mom said that she woul'nt press charges against the boy since he had some bad mental problems. (well back to the office) We started to talk about how I thought it was a little overkill to threaten to fire me over a little misunderstanding. I said that I felt that management was nit picking me and that I was being unfairly treated. She said and I qoute, "the reason that you feel like you're being picked on is what happend to you in your childhood". What the hell who f**king says that, to their employee no less. I mean hell I thought we were friends. I took the rest of the day and the next to think about my options. I went in the next day but as I steped in I started to get physically sick to my stomack. I turned in my key and uniform grabed my cotsumer service awared and left right then and there. I can't stop thinking about what happend. I was just so passionate about that job, hell I even wanted to own a franchise.
Sorry this took so long but I needed to tell the whole story.
Do you think I did the right thing and quit?
What would you have done?
