"The straw that broke the camel's back" Have you had "last straw" experiences in your life?
One of my first bosses, a horrible man, yanked a document out of my typewriter. I was working on it for another bank officer. "I complete the documents in the order received." I told him. This VP cursed me loudly and told me "You always have to complete my work first!" I got up, said "I quit" and walked out. Later that day the bank president called me at home and asked me to return and talk about the issue because "something wasn't handled properly". He said, and "you are a valuable employee." I ended up working for them several years launching a 32 year banking career.
