I’m A Quitter

I started working for a local CPA and I thought it was going to be a great job. I figured I could learn some light bookeeping and tax skills.  My first mistake was taking this job during tax season. The office I worked for is a very small office, meaning it was only me, the CPA and his wife. The CPA is an elderly man who has no patience when it comes to trying to teach others new skills. He got very frustrated with me on the 2nd or 3rd day I was there. I let it go.  He even told me “If I get frustrated with you, just overlook it”.  So I did a lot that week.  However, Friday, I made a mistake, nothing that couldn’t be fixed, just something that would take a little time to correct.  This happened at the end of the day, about 15 minutes before I was to get off work. He proceeded to get extremely frustrated with me, angry even. He berated me on and on for 25 minutes. At several points, he said “I thought you were brighter than this.” I knew it was his way of calling me stupid without calling me stupid.  I should mention that this 25 minutes was off the clock. However, he insisted I help him get the folders in order before I leave so I could work on it Monday. I didn’t protest because afterall, it was my mistake.  I don’t get upset about being corrected. I try to learn from things like that. However, his attitude and the things he said to me were uncalled for. When I finally got to leave, I walked out to my vehicle and cried all the way home.

Over the weekend, I contemplated what I should do.  I did need the job, but I new that the environment was toxic and if this is how he acted after only a week, it wasn’t going to get better. So I typed up my resignation letter, placed the office key in it, and dropped it off in the mail slot in the door at the office.  He was actually in the office when I got there but I parked around the building so I could drop it off without having to speak with him. I’m very non-confrontational and didn’t want to have to deal with his nasty attitude again.  I like to work, but I will not be verbally abused and stressed out like that.  No one deserves to be talked to like that.  He knew I didn’t have experience in this and that he’d have to train me. I get that it’s tax time, he’s busy and frustrated, but once again he knew this.  I’m disappointed in myself because I couldn’t stick it out.  But I knew I had to quit for the sake of my mental health.

There’s a quote that goes so well with this situation and it’s “People don’t quit jobs, they quit bosses.” This is so true in my case. If he had been more understanding I would have been willing to stay, no matter how busy the office got. But I refuse to stay somewhere I’m going to be belittled and go home in tears. No one should be spoken to like that but I don’t see him changing. He’s 72 and already set in his ways. But I’m not going to work there and put up with it.  Period.

How To Keep Your Resolutions This Year
It seems people always have the same New Year’s Resolutions: lose weight, workout more, eat healthier. But most people never seem to stick to those. Sure, it seems like a good idea to put all that pressure on yourself at first, but then after a few weeks you quickly realize that maybe you should have put down the eggnog and really thought things through.
I prefer less common New Year’s resolutions such as: smile more at strangers, without being creepy, of course, use less sarcasm when speaking to people, and try not to be a jerk when you’re having a bad day. Resolutions like that are not only beneficial for you, but for those around you also.
According to, only about 8% of people actually keep their resolutions. The other 92% must either forget about their resolutions or that cake at the office was just too tempting to pass up. Whatever the reason, people just don’t make it past a month before they toss their resolutions to the side and go back to doing what they were doing the year before and the year before that, etc.
Most people make resolutions because they want to make other people happy. That’s never a great idea because you become so focused on disappointing someone else that you become miserable. And that’s no way to live. You don’t have to overdo it by eating bad food, but you can eat it in moderation. Just be sure you are doing it for yourself and not another person. Ultimately, you are the one who has to live with yourself.

If you are determined to stick to your goals, measure your progress, no matter how small. That way you can keep on track and when you look back over time you can see how far you’ve come since the first of the year. Make sure it’s something you can achieve. Don’t set a goal to lose 40 lbs in a month. Chances are, that’s not feasible. Set a smaller goal such as maybe 10 lbs.
So, say you made a resolution to go to the gym more, start by going once or twice a week for 30 minutes at a time, or even just 15 minutes at a time. And every week just keep increasing it little by little until you are where you want to be.
And I think most people can find little ways to eat healthier. You don’t really need that double- foam-triple-caramel-latte-full-fat-milk do you? Those drinks are so high in calories that you could probably cut out 1000 calories right there. At least cut down to maybe one or two a week. I know it’s not easy but it will be worth it if you really are determined to keep your resolution.
See, resolutions are not really difficult to keep if you know how to do it. Also,don’t be too hard on yourself if you fail. If you really want it, just keep trying and you’ll eventually get there. The key is to not give up and keep pushing towards your goal.
