A boss who not only did not know the work but lied about her own training
Oh yeah, the worst part was that she owned the business, was extremely paranoid about anyone else 'knowing more' than she did or appearing too valuable to the company's success. To get rid of me, she tried to force me to perform functions that were in direct violation of state and federal law in this office, knowing me well enough to know I would refuse. Turned out that her most profitable account had told her that they did not want anyone but me handling their work. So, of course I quit and she did not have to fear another lawsuit, in my case wrongful discharge (my employee reviews were stellar). I did learn her reasoning later and to this day she does not know that account offered me their work, to set up my office in the location of my choice, etc. I was truly flattered, felt vindicated, etc., but respectfully declined. That business was way too cutthroat for me. I got a new and ultimately twice as good job with exceptional benefits the same day I packed my desk and walked out. Now I sincerely thank God frequently that I am no longer in the cube farm but am my own boss in my own (different) business.
