Bad marriage is a perfect example. I would say working for Kimball is like having a "Trophy" husband or wife. You do everything to suck up to them and please them. When they dump you, you suddenly feel a deep sense of relief; like you have gotten your soul returned.I'm a near 33 year ex-employee of Kimball.Imagine I got too expensive and not enough 'Kimball politically correct' for them.
My relationship with the company was like a bad marriage where I didn't have it in me to divorce them. They finally filed and it was the best thing that happened to me. Sometimes the grass is actually greener on the other side.
After you get over the shock of the whole thing you realize getting rid of the psycho b!tch you kept trying to please was the best thing that ever happened to you; and that you now have have your life back!
