7. Honestly depends what I knew going in


When I worked in sales, there were certain clients that were known to be over the top in how they treated salespeople. Clients that determined whether or not your company won tens of millions of dollars of business. One CFO in particular that looked like a walking heart attack, beet red, with sweat and saliva flying at you as he was screaming about your company dropping the ball (which it did.) So you knew going in, that survival of your company came with a bit of hell. You could choose to leave the job. I left the job.

It was not one sided either. I knew salespeople that mistreated clients. Which they would not dare to do with a maniac client.

I also see it a lot in couples, in which the recommendation is always, get the hell out, if asked.

Happens with kids in organized sports, which is why I hate organized sports.
