A friend of mine quit his job about a week ago. When leaving he told one of the owners several choice colourfull words. Then went to work for one of their competitors. He got his new office all set up nice and neat the way he likes it....
The next day it burned down. He is now working back at his old job after having a little chat with the other owner.

Obviously the first thing that comes to mind is don't burn bridges... may need them again and all that, yada, yada, yada...
Having said that, I've burned many of them down myself. Change is good sometimes. Speaking personally, I get complacent and get "locked" into certain routines and ways of doing things. It's good to shake things up every now and then.. force yourself to act.. MAKE changes happen.
Burning bridges, while not recommended for the faint of heart, is one way to make that happen.
Best of luck to your friend. Install smoke alarms also.

LIA.... you are on fire lately, lol
Moral of the story.... Don't tell off an ass you are willing to re-kiss.
It is one thing to give up your self worth and keep working for someone you hate. It is another to stand up for yourself, tell your boss what you really think only to retract, say sorry, and further give up your dignity by coming crawling back.
