I often hear of people who said that they will, or might, do that, but I am just curious how many of you actually did.

It could be a customer, boss, or co-worker (or more than one), but I would like to hear your stories.

I took a different approach. I put in my retirement papers for the minimum time allowed, and said nothing to my boss, leadership or anyone else until two days before I left. Much better, I think, to leave an unpleasant boss in the lurch, don't you think? And I retired on a Dec 31, so my last two weeks were over the holidays! Exit worked very well, and quite pleasant.

I know if I had told someone off, I would have felt bad afterward.

not me either. It wasn't the place per se I was fed up with; it was the job.

I was going to shout it out with Mr Scum Bag but decided to finish out the shift. It was the 2:30-10:30 shift. Next morning at 0800 I went to HR and quit. We were already super short handed. I don't know what they did or how they handled it. But he wasn't worth talking to.

When you have a choice between being right or being kind, itís better to be kind. A side benefit ó it confuses the hell out of most people.

I have a relative who was fired from her last job before retiring. She had a wonderful manager for several years and then a new manager came along who was an abusive micromanager. The new manager fired her a few months after taking over.

I asked her if she told off her manager, and she said that she didn't. If it were me, I'd let the manager know EXACTLY what I thought of her. There would most likely be plenty of yelling and cursing involved. If it's your last job, so what? It's not like you'll need them for a reference. LOL

I disagree. People put up with waayyyyy too much poor treatment from employers because they believe in "turning the other cheek" or "not burning bridges." Whatever happened to standing up for yourself and not being weak?

Wow... talk about bad karma. Unless one was in an extremely abusive situation for a very long time I think it would be a big mistake not to just say "Goodbye". I think it's something negative that you would carry around for years.
