Any epic resignation/walkout stories? Asking for a friend.

My friend Toby once worked as a sports agent in LA. After he quit he jumped on top of a desk in an open floor plan office and yelled to the entire agency that he was going to start his own shop and asked "who's coming with me". No one followed him except for his assistant. It was pretty epic.

There’s the true story of the dude, AK, at mullen in Boston who took a shit on a conference room table as he left. Bummer was that Tom, the facilities guy, had to clean it up.

Just to clarify, he got shitfaced then came back to the office and took a shit in a conference room (thought the chair was a toilet?), Tom found it, it was all on camera, and the dude got fired. Legend.

Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about. The worrying/anxiety multiplies when I proceeded further in the interview stages. Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.


What you should do when dealing with a very toxic worker that keep on sending passive aggressive messages to you as well as in group chat and email.
Things like when you answer his question he respond: I know that
Or when he keeps on saying my change requests were just minor in group meeting but actually not.
And keep on saying how hard he works when he clearly wasn’t and already underperformed compared to an intern level.

How to not let this toxic co-worker not poison me any further?

Living in mcol city on east coast, wondering what salary expectation to have. Graduated 2009 so I think my job/income prospects back then negatively warped my view of what current market rate is.

I have CFA charter, almost 7 years experience perf attribution and fixed income analytics. Make 84k plus ~6k bonus. Want to move to more of an equity research role. Okay w taking a Jr role as I imagine salary is not much different, but don't know. Seems they prefer new grads, so a 36 YO may not fit


Not bad for three months work.

Side note: this is still early stages – get in now.
