    #25 Thank you @Lisa Gallagher, your support means a great deal. I know it will all work out and trust me I've learned a great deal. My head is in a good space and I'm just doing what I can to forge that new path. It has to work out at some point.

    #19 @Laura Mikolaitis, I hope one day you can walk away like I did. i had to have faith that my mental and physical health were more important and that eventually, something better would come along. My husband needed my help so I do a lot of work for him. I'm still hoping to find something just for me though and we are making ends meet even though it's tougher. He was happier because I was much happier after leaving. Sending good thoughts your way for a better tomorrow!!

    First of all congrats @John White, MBA, how exciting!! I LOVED this article. Sadly, I could relate to 3/4's of it. That's the only job I ever quit- the one with a very toxic manager. We were part of the Court System so our clients had to be there. There wasn't a choice and my managers boss, is her cousin. Go figure.. that's why she still gets away with her behavior today. She's had at least 8 people quit right before I left and not long after. Not sure if more have quit since I've been gone for over 2 years now. She even had video cameras installed for "safety purposes,' because they do get clients on Parole. However she has a monitor in her office and she can now watch her employees all day- she made sure cameras were installed in places only employees migrate too. Before the cameras she and the deputy director used to stand behind walls and listen to employees convos. They would also watch how long you were on the phone and come out to listen if you were on the phone longer than a few minutes.

    Excellent news @John White, MBA and great article - congratulations! I felt like I was reading about something very familiar. Oh wait, I was. Despite all the toxicity in that environment, you walked away having learned what not to do. There's something to be said for that. Dealing with negative management can certainly test us to our core. It certainly has tested me. Thanks for sharing your news!

    I have been blessed to have very few crap managers or clients. I did have one though I called the Lamprey Eel. The sea lamprey uses its sucker mouth, sharp teeth and rasping tongue to attach itself to the body of a fish and suck the fish's blood. Fish that survive the attack are left with a large open wound that can become infected and often leads to death. She would arrive in the office virtually every morning clearly lacking energy. She would target the first visible victim and through some manufactured abuse render the victim an empty shell while she carried on throughout her day living off the energy she had consumed. It became a quest to spot her as soon as possible and to make myself invisible until her deadly deed was inflicted on one of my coworkers. Cowardly perhaps but it allowed me to survive!

    Is That the Job You Want?
    Is That the Job You Want? It is amazing the diversity of jobs we have had and will perform. Some of us strive for that position always. Others wind up there by happenstance. For some, it is because they don’t have alternatives.Even as a high school kid, I took some jobs...

    Jam packed with employee stories from many angles, and what really strikes me is the honor you still have for your beloved father. He had core values, I suspect he was a man of God, and he followed the Code of Honor. I never waitressed, but my first formal job (aside from picking garlic in Gilroy, California with the migrant farm workers) was at McDonalds. Much like a university education, I learned principles that I later applied to the Los Angeles County Jail Ward for the 'fresh' arrested and 'scraped off the streets." You have all the key points here. The only other point I would like to gently add is that one needs to pick up the 'culture' of the environment. If the patients in the Jail Ward could hold me hostage and cause a full-blown 'lockdown' of that 15 cm steel door, hey, I need to shoe them who is boss. At first, I thought the LAPD were rather brutal at clobbering a convict to the floor, but I quickly learned that the same person I was feeling empathy for knew he was HIV Positive and was on PCP (elephant tranquilizer) and wanted to bite off our hands. So your story on the hand-that-almost-got-amputated, it resonates. Gave me flashbacks for a moment there. Fantastic writing - You Should Write a Book!

    Well said on lessons learned!
    And Management, please remember that your staff is a reflection of your abilities. Like a sport(s) team, the players maybe in perfect shape and the best of the best however if the coach provides a poor playbook and expects his players to compensate for his/ her incompetence... ...well we all know the outcome.

    If you show that you like the way the company works, your boss and your boss's bosses will be happier to make you an important part of it. Also, get to know your co workers. If you seek to understand your co workers, you may avoid potential disagreements.

    #7 Hi @Gerald Hecht Thank you for reading it and share it in the Psychology Hive. Like your comment, and maybe because I'm not from the USA​ or leave in the USA and all my education is not a Western education focused in the THOUGH and MIND - I have a different approach to EI. Thank you for the link :).

    It's one thing to talk about the importance of Emotional Intelligence, known as EQ. @Daniel Goleman does so, brilliantly. It's another thing to learn EQ. In this buzz, and in her book "The Seven Irrefutable Laws of Emotional Intelligence: A Proven Emotional Intelligence Training to Overcome Fears, Change Behaviors, Be Successful and Happy" [long title!], Emilia M. Ludovino suggests how we can do so, and suggests that you really have to want it, because it's not easy to learn this.
