    I quit my job!!!!!! My office manager was a mean, nasty woman who blamed me for any mistakes made, even when I could prove they were HERS!!! It was always my fault. I would come home each night miserable and my DH said just quit! I stuck to it because I am so used to working and jobs are few and far between in our area but it's not worth my marriage and my health to be under so much stress. I quit yesterday. She was extra nasty to me in front of my co-workers and I left for lunch to calm down. When I came back, my co-workers were looking at me and whispering....it was the last straw. I laid my key on her desk and said I quit. She looked at me full of hate and said "Thank you!" The only thing I feel is relief!!!!

    Sounds like you did the right thing. No job is worth that kind of treatment. Now, let it go and move forward! :thumbup: :D

    Good for you, I'm sure you'll feel much better knowing you don't have to go there everyday.

    Sounds like a hateful woman, and I don't know how long you've put up with it, but I think you did the right thing, it's not worth the stress on your body and your marriage.

    You're right -- your health and marriage aren't worth it. My health went to he$$ in a handbasket because of a boss from he$$. Good luck!
