    That's true. To me, if the boss is acting in a way that makes someone feel like they need to just get up, leave, and never come back, it's a valid response.

    You can say 'he should have had a conversation' or 'the boss never should have acted like that' - it's just a matter of where you place the accountability. Who knows what it felt like to be in his shoes, though. It's hard to know the right way to react unless you're faced with it. Feel bad for him though, sounds like a horrible overall experience.

      it's a valid course of action, but I think the extent of the author's actions is what's up for debate here.

      There were a lot of options - boss, HR, recruitment agency that could have possibly resolved his grievances. In this case, I'm not sure where the accountability is placed matters. Most people are just commenting about what would have been best for the author.
