    I'm working in a waitressing job right now, and most of the time it's pretty fun despite the crap wages.

    Unfortunately I have a bit of a tit for a boss who called me up to yell at me after work last night because one of my tables didn't get the right food.

    I've only worked there 3 weeks, and to be 100% honest need to stop working there next month (to be "unemployed" for a CDL). The phonecall last night was a bit of a final straw for me, I'd been thinking about leaving anyway...

    What's the best way to leave without yelling "I quit!" in his face? Any advice / hints /tips?

    Short and sweet, by letter, handed in person.

    Don't forget to workout how much notice you need to give but also don't feel you have to justify why you're leaving.

    Write a letter of resignation and leave it on his desk or something where he won't be able to question you as he reads it. Don't mention it again - wait for him to ask you about it, and then say "Oh yeah, I'd like to move on blah blah".

    I'd do it in person, more polite I suppose - plus if you leave a note you'll still have to talk to him in person to work out notice, assuming you'll give any. It's so awkward quitting but remember you don't need to justify yourself - if he insists on knowing why you're leaving, you can just walk out

    I would say for you to try to sort the problem out, instead of running away from the job altogether.

    Talk to your boss, tell him how you feel. You must realise how fortunate you are to have a job, quitting over your boss yelling at you (in my opinion) is a bit childish.
