Cashier from London Knows Only Way is Up From Bottom
Why did you resign?
Because my boss is an arrogant so and so who cannot survive a day without belittling me in as many ways as possible
What are you going to do next?
Become more successful than my current boss and make sure he knows it
Dear RM I just thought I would take this opportunity to inform you that it is not your total lack of people skills, or even your pompous, arrogant attitude which have prompted me to submit this letter of resignation.
I realise I was in a fairly junior role, earned a darn sight less than you do, and am 13 years younger than you, but having these facts rubbed in my face on a daily basis is not something that I relish.
My only conclusion can be that you think my work is of such a high standard that you were afraid that despite my relative youth, given any encouragement, my career would overtake yours with such speed that it would leave everyone in the office spinning.
"Of course Carl can use your PC, he's more important than you", and "You do know you're the bottom of the heap", are just two examples of the motivating comments for which I shall always remember you. I suppose really, I should be thanking you for keeping my feet on the ground, so that when I eventually do become someone very important, I shall know exactly how to keep my staff firmly in their place. Thanks for the memories, I start my new job (where funnily enough, I shall be earning more than you!!!) on Monday, so unfortunately, I shan't be seeing you again!!
