Several years ago, a friend of mine suddenly quit her job at a fast-food place. I was shocked at her seemingly rash decision, until she explained that the new boss had repeatedly been verbally abusive, not to her, but to a vulnerable new employee. Although my assistant manager friend had expected to grow with the company, when the boss continued to behave badly in spite of her courage to speak up, she realized her future lay elsewhere.
