  2. I often wonder where people hear some of these things. I’m thinking specifically of #6.

I really believe that colleges and even high schools should give short courses to students about the realities of the business world and the employment relationship.

    1. I remember emphatically telling people that it was illegal to fire someone for resigning–that you had to let them work out their two week notice. Of course, I was telling this to my fellow Burger King coworkers and I was probably 17.
