  • That depends on how bad you need the money. If you don't and the stress is causing you problems in other areas of your life, then respectfully quitting might be a good idea. Don't tell your bosses your quiting due to drama, tell them you want to be a stay at home mom or that you have a family crisis that needs your attention. If you plan on going back to work full time ever again, you will need them to provid a good reference.

  • leave when you have another job or don't need the one you've got. Being miserable isn't worth it.

  • When your job stresses you so much and you feel miserable and have to drag yourself in each day, than its time to make the decision to move on.

  • A lady at my work who had been there like 30 years told me she was going to stay until they "damn pissed her off." She walked past me and said "yep, they have damn pissed me off", loaded up her stuff and left. It was funny. But if u can afford to get away from the drama, I would.

  • When it makes you miserable. If you need the money, start looking for a new job. If you don't, you can quit and find a volunteer position.
