Thanks for the Opportunity
Every workplace has its own set of policies and regulations that the employees have to follow no matter how crazy or unprofessional they might be. Those policies, set by the top-level managers or employers, make the overall culture of the workplace.
If you have been working at a place for a long time, it is likely that you adapt to certain work protocols but someone new might not adjust to them so well, such as this employee. This person left a job because of how the hard-working lot was being treated there. Brave move!
