Call the owner and explain what happened. Don’t be begging for a job, just explain that you respect and appreciate the opportunity but that the environment because so unbearable and unprofessional that you could no longer tolerate it. He will probably be upset that you hadn’t come to him sooner, but all you can do is apologize and explain that you didn’t want to come across as being a whiner- especially since you were only part time

@MissMontreal:  Been there, done that. I think that you need to call the owner and say that you owe him an explanation for your sudden departure, and you’d really like to discuss this with him when he has time. When he does (or if he doesn’t, try a nice, professional email), explain to him that you really enjoyed your job, but you were feeling abused by a co-worker. Explain that there was physical contact (he grabbed your arm), threats, cussing, etc, etc and you were uncomfortable working in an environment like that any longer. I would wish him well and ask them if there is anything you can do to help a new employee transition into your position that would NOT involve re-entering the workplace.

Make sure to tell the other owner you were grabbed and had obscenities screamed at you. I’m sure he’d like to know about that unprofessional BS.

I think we all have a work threshold and if something goes over that, I can totally understand walking out.

You should really report being grabbed and having him curse at you. Not cool.
