Quitters Sometimes Win

| Working | November 26, 2012

(Two of my coworkers, Worker #1 and Worker #2, are rooming together and working in the same department at the factory. Word spreads around that Worker #1 has been let go/fired, which prompts Worker #2 to head up to the office to talk.)

Worker #2: “Look, Worker #1 needs this job more than I do. He’s trying to go to school and needs the money more than I do. Fire me and bring him back.”

Office: “Sorry, we can’t do that. We can’t just switch who’s been let go and who hasn’t.”

(Worker #2 decides not to argue, but really wants his friend to get his job back because he needs it.)

Worker #2: “Well then, I quit.”

(With that, he left his tools and door card on the desk and left the building. Within a few hours after Worker #2 quit, the office called Worker #1 and offered him his job back!)
