I Quit my Job

I feel like maybe I ruined my own life. I'm a software engineer. I quit my job and I don't have another job lined up. I just couldn't stand another minute of my boss. Or her boss. Really it was my boss's boss that drew the line for me. My boss's boss and I had a one-on-one phone call, and it was clear that my boss been complaining about me to her. I don't know why she would do that. I am carrying a large part of our team. She will be ill equipped to replace me, and I'm putting it mildly.


But what the fuck do I do? I'm scared. I quit because I had to quit. It didn't all happen in one day. I had been expressing my dissatisfaction to my boss for weeks. She just didn't care. So I spoke with HER boss. And her boss told me that my boss had been complaining about me---creating a paper trail she could use to fire me. So I quit.


Better to quit than be fired.


They are really screwed without me. I don't think they know that, but they are. I wrote an entire service myself.


I'm scared and I'm not sure what to do, but I don't think I made a mistake. Not really. They were terrible. Both of them. I'm glad to be rid of them. I just don't know what to do next. I will be looking for other jobs as a software engineer.
