Decades ago I worked for The Phone Company when there was only one. I was hired as an Directory Assistance Operator. I was the only guy in a room of almost 100 women. The Phone Company had just started hiring men in traditionally women's jobs and vice versa. I signed on since I wanted to be a lineman or work in a CO. After a few weeks of the mindless work - and it was (and probably is) over a break I mentioned I was thinking of quitting. One of the old-timers who'd been there for almost 30 years told me - and I'll never forget this - "Yeah, I thought about quitting once and they had one of their psychiatrists talk me out of it."
I hung up my headset in my locker, wrote a note saying "Don't even look for me." and walked out never to return. They called every day for a month.
