One that happened years ago for example and I’ll mention now. I was working at an abusive job where yelling was normal. People crying was normal. I looked for other jobs and interviewed at a consultancy. Someone there reported me to my boss and I got screamed at.

This kind of shit is why I love having some money.
Not at a job but a job interview one time. It was going terribly wrong. The interviewer was a jerk and I was done with it all. I said, “Well, I’m leaving. This isn’t going to work out.”
He said, shocked, “Wait, you can’t just leave!”
I stood up, looked at him and said, “Yes I can” and walked right on out of there onto the street, smiling. Can’t pull that kind of crap unless you have funds enough that you aren’t desperate for a job. I’m incredibly lucky and I appreciate my good fortune and I will and do use it to put schmucks like that in their place.
