Yes it stunk there. Actually worst job I ever had, not the cold or rain but my position I dealt with abusive management too.

Announcing FIRE at Megacorp was great. It pales in comparison to when I quit that job to go to Megacorp.

Always possible, of course, but it seems like such a pointless thing to troll about. Especially on this forum.

Perhaps they required him to sign a restrictive covenant which requirement was not explained to him before the job was accepted. Happens often.

If that is the case and the employer refused to negotiate the terms of the document, then the choice is to leave.

Judging by his lack of response in his own thread I think the OP has done to us the same as he did to his employer. Came in one day and then up and left. Glad I don't owe him money for that.

He has four posts here, and four threads started. No response from him on any of them, and no contribution in any other.

Hey, be thankful. At least the place wasn't barraged with messages.
