    Not good to burn bridges in the business world. They may regret writing that some day. Also, we don't know your coworker. Maybe they really do have an egghead boss, or maybe they were just a shitty employee and that's why they got treated like shit. In my experience, the worst performing employees are typically the ones always doing the pissing and moaning.

    This doesn't really say much about the boss, but it sure says a lot about your co-worker... and none of it is good.

    But whatcha gonna do? :dunno:

    About all that got the writer was 15 minutes of stardom and now he can't use that company for a reference. Burning bridges in NEVER a good idea. Written with 50+ years of experience.

    Pretty sure the guy had something lined up.

    But a very stupid thing to do.

    Bad move.

    The best way to leave a job you hate is by use of the ol' squeeze play.

    Yeah, she has something lined up. That was my first concern, considering today's economy. You just about gotta be unhinged to quit a job and have nothing lined up.

    Still - I read that email when I was on a call. I was fighting to maintain decorum. Successfully, I might add.
