  •  I fought back at a couple of companies (6+ / 0-)

    during my working life.  The last time the confrontation was on a Friday evening.  I wrote my letter of resignation and got to work early on Monday.  I found another person in the department to go with me to put the letter on my boss's desk, so I would have a witness as to the time I turned it in.  Then I went down to Personnel and gave then a copy of the letter and  made them log in the time.

    Funny thing - my boss never came in until around 9:00 am, but when I put that letter on her desk, there was a cup of steaming cocoa there.  And the door to the manager's office was closed.  

    They let me go that day, but with pay for 2 weeks vacation and 2 weeks of sick days.  I know they were going to fire me and would have except for my actions.
