And it does hurt to have an employee leave, in many ways. Besides the hurt feelings part, here are some other reasons why your boss may become a jerk after you tender your resignation.They act defensive because they have a lot to defend. Your boss will get called into her boss’s office and asked to explain why you are leaving and what she did wrong to make you go. If she can argue that you weren’t that great of an employee in the first place, having you leave doesn’t seem so bad.Your boss’s boss knows that the managerial relationship places a strong role in an employee’s decision to leave, so your boss is now having to prove that losing a good employee isn’t that bad after all. Unfortunately, you may get smeared during this defensive act.Managers shouldn’t do this, by the way. They should always be honest about the situation, but sometimes the desire to defend takes over.
