This is a question I Quit!

Scaryduck writes, "I celebrated my last day on my paper round by giving everybody next door's paper, and the house at the end 16 copies of the Maidenhead Advertiser. And I kept the delivery bag. That certainly showed 'em."

What have you flounced out of? Did it have the impact you intended? What made you quit in the first place?

I actually *don't* do drugs - alcohol is too pleasant and freely available - but I once went for a call centre job taking complaints about faulty parking meters. They advised me that as part of the *interview process* I would need to submit to a urine test. "Before you even get the job?" I asked. Yes, they said.

They didn't offer me the second interview. I often wonder what I would have said to them. Would I have been a have-a-go hero like the poster above ("sorry, I'm snorting coke out of the bottom of an Afghan boy right now") or would I have made up some bullshit excuse about accepting another job? Nowadays I'd pull out the Afghan boy line, but back then I didn't have as much experience.
