Life Inc. – It’s me or the cafeteria food: Creative reasons for quitting

I quit!Given the job market these days, you may be surprised to find that some people actually are quitting their jobs.

Not only that, but they’re giving some pretty creative reasons for why they won’t be coming to work anymore.

Staffing firm OfficeTeam recently asked senior managers to tell them some of the more unusual reasons people have given for quitting their job.

Managers reported that employees had quit to watch a soccer game or take in a movie, because they needed to feed their dog and because they wanted to join a rock band, reality show or beauty contest.

For others, the office atmosphere was literally too much. The 1,300 employers surveyed offered all sorts of sensory-related reasons their employees had quit.

Among them:

“He quit because he didn’t like the way the office smelled.”

“One employee didn’t enjoy the cafeteria food.”

“An individual did not like the sound of file cabinets being slammed.”

“A person quit because he hated the carpet.”

“One worker did not like the colors of the walls.”

“The employee quit because the office building was unattractive.”
