I've left a few jobs over the course of my career and did so in pretty standard ways — except for one. The manager I was working under was BEYOND toxic — he would regularly gaslight me, take credit for my work, and undermine me in front of others. Not only that, but he was also incredibly disorganized, managed to somehow "not see" most of his emails, and I was constantly cleaning up after him. In short, I didn't care to leave things on the best of terms with this person. So when I received my written offer from my next job, I decided to have a little fun with giving this manager my two weeks notice. I emailed him my notice with a purposefully vague subject line — of course, he didn't open it. I told others I was leaving, but he remained completely oblivious. It wasn't until a week later, when a coworker asked me about my going away party in front of him, that he FINALLY caught on — "going away party for what??" His face was priceless, and he wound up looking totally clueless. What's YOUR best quit-my-job story, FGB'ers??

I am not quite sure what to put this in the comments.
But at my work, they pay the males more than they pay the females, even if the females have degrees. I have three degrees. The two men that I work with get more then I do. The one that just got hired gets $2 more an hour then I do & has no experience or degrees, the other one has been there one month longer then me & is handsome & never even finished school with a very shady past & gets $3 more an hour then I do. I have also worked in this industry for over 25 years. I’m very upset about this & have already approached management about it twice. Any suggestions?

I ran across this article on salary negotiation.
The tips come from an Indiana University professor of business law and management. I thought I would share since I've seen posts in the past asking how to negotiate.

I have been working for a company for over 7 years.
I'm a valued worker and am excellent at what I do. I am an accounts manager and I spend a lot of time working with customers and ensuring the accounts of sales projects are correct and in scope of their contracts. However, our workplace is toxic. The salesMEN are very demanding and demeaning of their coworkers. They are non-communicative, demanding, and rude. The boss seems to be more interested in money from sales than the moral of the overall workers. I have had confrontations with a couple of these salesmen as I try to provide support to them. My boss just told me he wants me to work from home because they feel I'm am difficult to work with. I am concerned about not being able to fully complete my job tasks now as I am isolated from my co-workers. Even though me boss has provided me with computers, dual monitors, phone and a printer at my home, it feels like I'm being pushed out.

I have a hearing in my county with the Department of Labor and the School System where I worked.
I was a clerk who was forced to resign so they wouldn’t have to pay unemployment. I appealed and now three years later, I have a hearing. Any suggestions on the best way to handle these jerks ?
