“If you don’t like (something) just leave.”
Hands up if you have had that statement or a variation of thrown at you?
It’s not always that simple to leave though is it.
When at (secondary) School I tried to leave on at least three separate occasions for various reasons I won’t go into now, but my request fell on deaf ears. I took issues to various things the school insisted on and when I complained I was given that Mantra. So once I did. I said “toodly bye” and made a bolt for the exit, only to be wrestled to the floor by two teachers and three students. “When asked ‘what were you doing?’ I answered, “you said if I didn’t like it leave. So I was leaving.”
Leaving in the employment world is again a bit tricky, and I have a distinct feeling that certain employers deliberately make it difficult for people to move on. I know one guy who refused to give references because it was ‘against company policy’ but I know that was b.s.
