    One of the few times in over 40 years of working that I quit any job without notice, I waited till my last check was deposited and then called to tell them I was walking away from their "walkaway lease." They reported that I was "not rehireable" lol, like I'd ever apply to work for those ######## again. They also held back over $5000 that wasn't theirs when I turned in the truck. I did get a little over $600 from joining a class action suit a few years later though.

    I quit once without knowing it when I told this punk made ##### foreman," The next time you raise your voice to me, I will knock your teeth out."

    I was very calm and polite.

    Had my check at the end of the day.

    Sounds like you hurt their feelings. If I could count all the holes I've worked with......

    My last job before trucking was as a consultant for a firm. Their way of 'consulting' was to basically tear every person and every department down. I wasn't really into it, but I needed a job and so I did it for about a year and a half.
    One day the big man shows up and he and I and the project manager sit down.
    "We're going to need your resignation," he says. "You're just not like us."
    I said, "you're right Jeff, I'm not like you. And I'm happy to know it."
    Walked out and drove home from Nashville. (We were doing a project for Western Express).

    I did two local jobs and went back to Land starve. If I found 50 hours a week with ten hours of commute each week I would have stayed. But Landstar I have control over time out and home.

    Best of luck.

    Get the flag of Cusco and fly it out front of your house if you want to mess with your neighbors.

    Flag of Cusco is almost identical to the pride flag..
