Don't burn bridges. World is small.


In my twenties I told my boss to f*ck off the day I quit. A year later I saw her at a professional conference and was so scared of what she'd say to me, I hid from her for two days. John Mayer said, "Say what you need to say." Well, maybe - but not at work.

That made me laugh out loud! You're right. Almost never the right thing. Almost.
