Left the job two weeks ago and went back to apartment maintenance. I didn't realize the kind of stress that nutball had me in until I left. I've had bosses before who always thought they were right and you were wrong, but this guys always thinks he's right and you must be lying. I just couldn't take being called a liar anymore. Things just kept getting uglier and uglier and finally on friday he told me that he was going to let me go, but had a change of heart and was gonna give me one week to change my attitude and prove myself. He even told me to stop coming here because you all were a bad influence on me and there is nothing to learn here. ( No, he's never been here). So monday morning at 6am his van was sitting in front of his shop with all his stuff and my letter of "see ya". I've never quit without giving notice before, but this was over the edge. By 10am I had my old job back with better money and should have my own property and crew again in a month or two. The only thing I lost was a van.
Doing maintenance doesn't get the professional respect that being a tech does, but working for a company that actually appreciates me means a whole lot more than that. I think I'm gonna try to sink my roots deep.
Thanks for the rant!
