should i still call my district manager and explain to him why i quit or just let it go?

last night i kinda had a falling out with my GM..(another one) anyways..she refused to check my work like i asked and i told her that i've had it with this place..her response was.."i've had it with you being a cry baby" i walked out and did not show up for work today because i was offered another job. my question though is should i call and let him know the reason why i chose not to show was for her name calling again ..and that i refuse to work with her...or should i just let it go and tell future employers that i left because it was such a hostile work environment

  • I'd let your district manager know. I'd be careful with explaining why you left your job to potential employers. If you say it was a hostile work environment, it doesn't always shed a positive light on the situation (i.e. you) because there's always 2 sides to a story. Whenever I interviewed people for a position, any negative talk about the previous employer could potentially be a red flag (not always, but consider whether its a risk you want to take)

  • I would simply as your immediate manager that you had worked with if you could come in and leave a letter of resignation and keep a copy of it yourself. also be bold and ask for a letter of recommendation and do not let her know you have a new job. Try it, it will be beneficial later on and disregard any phone calling for she said, she said issues.

  • Too little, too late if you ask me. You quit without giving a two weeks notice. Doesn't matter what she said to you. You're the one who looks bad.

  • Let the company HR department know why you left. that way is will be in you employee records and if the manager attempts to bad mouth you in the future you will have a response.

  • Won't you have to go and fill out some sort of exit papers? I would talk to HR and let them know. The name calling isn't acceptable especially from a superior.
