Last night could possibly be my reasons for leaving my job for good. (this is my 2nd job, not the bulk of my income at all)
I've been at the same job on and off for about 5 years now. My manager recently offered to let me have about a month and a half off with the condition that if I wanted to pick up a few hours here and there I could. (This was a comrpomise with her as I've been trying to quit this job for about the last 6 months.) I've been in maybe twice this this time period for just a few hours (three or four at most and normally only one night out of the week).
There are people, three as far as I know, that are upset with me because of the flexability that the manager has given me. All three aren't really talking to me, that's fine, but the thrid has been talking to other coworkers and supervisors about me and name calling (NFBSKing B****, is normally used.) It all gets back to me because I'm friends with the people that this is told to. This was all last night.
I guess I would have expected the management to tell them that they should only be worrying about themselves and the on goings of other people isn't their business. Also that cursing to the extent that they were, isn't acceptable. I've been a manager before and that type of behavior just isn't tolerated, period. Instead the supervisor they talked to just said I'll talk to her about it.
I'm back on the schedule for my usual two nights starting the week after next but this third person that's joined the hating club is working the second night I'm there and quite frankly I just don't feel like I should have to deal with that going on, even if it's not to my face.
I've been in numerous situations involving work where things just don't seem fair but that's life, it's not always fair. Third person's only been working there for about 2 months now and management just seems to not want to deal with the interlying problems that out staff has. (This isn't the only problem going on.)
I've promised to work there until September 15th but I'm just not sure having to deal with that is worth the amount of money they are paying me, which isn't much.
I could understand if my hopping in and out was causing others to lose hours, but it's not. The three involved have mentioned needing the money but I'm not taking any of their pay away from them by coming in for a few hours a week.
I can't even be sure that anything has been said to the asst. manager or the store manager at this point. I don't believe either of them are really aware of what has been going on, it's just frusterating to have to work in an enviornment where it's not even fun to come in and work.
I used to go in all the time wanting to be there. Now I just can't wait to leave and my final departure might be sooner than later.
ETA: I guess I just feel like if I leave they win. Or should I just leave and let it be done?

Don't stay if it's making you that uncomfortable. It's not worth an ulcer to make sure they "don't win."
But first, I would explain to the manager (whomever you promised to stay til 9/15) that working conditions have become unbearable and why. It's always possible you might want or need to work there again later on, so it's best not to burn bridges if you can help it. But if you can't, meh. Just do what you can.
