I don't know if this is a blaze of glory, but it made me feel good. I got a job in the big city, my new manager said that she wanted to give me a two week trial period because she just wasn't sure about me.
This manager was a bitch. Constantly yelling, expecting us to work through lunch and work late and come in early, spent sessions in her office about how awful we were. I was miserable; the job was hell.
The Friday of the end of my trial period, my manager called me into her office. She said she was pleasantly surprised at how good I was and she definitely wanted to keep me on.
I told her that unfortunately she had not passed her trial period, and I would not be staying. Then I walked out.
The best elevator ride down to the lobby ever.
