In the mid-80s my wife worked for a small privately-owned chain of auto part stores. The owner was an arrogant, egotistical, know-it-all, wannabe-alpha-male. My wife decided she'd had enough after one of his rants about "women in the workplace", combined with being stressed-out, overworked, and underpaid, and dutifully gave her two-week notice. During those two weeks, the owner used every opportunity to tell her that he knew she wasn't going anywhere because she didn't have another job lined up. On the first day of the third week she even received a phone call from him asking why she hadn't arrived at work yet. It took her all of three days to find another, better, and higher-paying job. A couple of months later she got a call from one of her former co-workers, who said the owner had to hire three women to handle her workload.
