Writer's Block: Take this job and shove it ...

Have you ever walked off a job on the spot? What drove you to it? Did you regret it afterwards?

I was hired to help set up a new store and I told the interviewer that I was acting in a play and I would not be able to work on rehearsal and performance nights, to which he agreed. One performance night, I was told to stay and work regardless of the play, and if I didn't, I'd be fired. They did not appreciate that it was a serious obligation that they themselves had agreed to, but I did, and left. If I stayed, everyone at the theatre would be screwed, instead of just me if I left. In the end, the employer was ruled at fault at a labor hearing and had to pay my unemployment compensation.
