Weirdest Reasons Workers Quit Their Jobs


There's no shortage of workers who get fired for doing stupid things on the job. Take, for example, Tamara Vangundy, the Indiana coroner who earlier this month reportedly showed up at a crime scene intoxicated and was subsequently charged with drunk driving.

But some people also have very weird reasons for quitting their jobs, according to a recent survey of employers by the staffing firm OfficeTeam. In telephone interviews with more than 1,300 senior managers at U.S. and Canadian companies with 20 or more employees, managers reported some strange excuses. There was the worker who said that he was making too much money and felt that he wasn't worth it. Another said he needed to stay home -- to feed his dog.
