I'm not sure how your responses honestly refuted what I said.

I have quit several jobs with little or no notice because it was an overwhelming and stressful effort just to arrive at work on a daily basis. Hating one's job or place of employment makes for a bad employee and bad employer-employee relations; been there, done that.

The type of person described in the story would be better served personally, socially and financially if she were self-employed and/or was in an independent contractor relationship with little or no oversight or social contacts.
I'm not refuting your response, I simply amplified it based upon my personal work experiences.
