Employee quits toxic job after boss tries to refuse resignation 😤

Have you ever had a boss who was a complete jerk? This Reddit user certainly did. Not only did their boss have a terrible attitude and pay low wages, but they also frequently addressed female employees using condescending and inappropriate language. After finding a better job, the employee submitted their two weeks' notice, only to have their boss refuse to accept it and try to force them to stay. In response, the employee decided to quit on the spot and start their new job the next day. While some may view this as an a**hole move, others argue that it was necessary to protect themselves from potential retaliation. What do you think - was the employee in the wrong for quitting abruptly, or were they justified in leaving a toxic work environment? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

NTA. Quitting a job is your right, not a favor.
