i work at taco time and my manager is a total dick theres been a whole bunch of times where ive had to restrain myself from walking out the door cuz hes such a douchebag

anyway im gettin sick of it and tonight im working a closing shift with him and im like this close to tellin him he can take this job and shove it

so what are the negative consequences of just walking out on a job? should i give them 2 weeks notice first?

Jobs like that rarely expect to get 2 weeks notice before you leave. Its polite to do it, but if your manager is ticking you off that much there's not much negative that will happen to you from walking out of a job at taco time.

It's Taco Time!

Yes, another thing to add to my list of things to say when someone asks for the time.

Depends, do you want to use them for a reference? If not, tell him to **** off and don't put it on your resume.

I'm in a drought stricken part of India working for about £1 a day in some factory making shoes for you.

Sucks doesn't it.

Yeah tell him to go fvck himself and his little taco time. You can even still put the job on a resume, at least here in Canada it is illigal to give a bad referance.

Edit*


Have some fun telling him off too. It's not like you're always gonna have crappy jobs (I hope) that you can do cool things while quitting. Tell him how you really feel, and storm out with pride.

If you want to use them for a reference it would be best not to storm out.

And also, if you end up having to try and get your old job back I don't think they'd be happy to let you back if you stormed out.

When you apply for another job they'll want a reference from you're previous employer, who will give you a very bad one, and you'll be an unemployed hobo.

as they say at the cheese factory "suck it up, bitch".

go ahead and walk out, nobody's gonna care. you just might get a bad rep if you plan on getting another job locally.

If you really don't like it tell him you wanna quit but you'll for a bit until he gets a replacement.

so, as they also say at the cheese factory "(in a rapper style, like G-UniT) Come on Mutha Fucka Come on!"

yea ive been working there probably for about 7 months and me and him are like the only 2 guys who work there and he cant be a dick to the girls so he just has to be a dick to me its bull****

its jsut really annoying when you have a guy who works at freakin taco time but takes his job as serious as a damn secret service agent

and no im only 17 and i dont plan on using it as a reference i would rather worlk at the music store downtown or at least someplace which doesnt reak of ****ty food

i dont think you'll be giving the reference, they'll just call up Taco Time and find out themselves.
#18
taco time?
i'm guessing you're locating in the northwest region? seattle maybe?

dude just walk out. the only bad thing about it is you'll lose you're job and you won't be able to use them as a job reference when you apply for another job. i can almost assure you that no one gives a **** about a job reference from taco time or any other fast food joint.

my suggestion? cuss him out in front of a **** load of customers and walk out. but before you do that make sure you apply for another job. once you get hired then tell him to **** off.

p.s. i may i suggest getting a job as a busser(buss boy)? you make some good money through tips

yeah you should definitely look into restaurants, local ones preferably. trust me, working as a cook, I KNOW, how much bussers make on tips aside from your wage. if you're at least 18, it'll be easy, but if you're 16 or 17, it'll be a bit of a challenge to try and get a job as a busser in a restaurant since they have to consider the risks in working in a kitchen environment (food poising, slippery floors, etc.), which is why i recommend local establishments.

p.s. yeah some people are just born assholes, as a matter of fact, i just quit my second job last week cuz the chef i worked with was an asshole. if he was even slightly under pressure he pretty much ate everyone alive with his eyes. i got fed up and told him to **** off.
