  • “The worker told us he just couldn’t get up in the morning.”
  • “He quit because he didn’t like the way the office smelled.”
  • “An individual did not like the sound of file cabinets being slammed.”
  • “One person quit to watch a soccer tournament.”
  • “We had someone leave because he had to stay home to feed his dog.”
  • “An employee left because he wanted to watch a movie with his girlfriend during work hours.”
  • “A person quit because he hated the carpet.”
  • “He just walked out without a peep. We have no idea why he left, and we were not able to contact him.”
  • “One worker left to become an apple farmer.”
