'Hey Sandy,' he says to her, 'I quit. You're a b**** for talking to Mary the way you have and [how you've] been treating us'

In the viral video, Maxwell barges into regional manager Sandy's office, showing her sitting down at a desk.
'Hey Sandy,' he says to her, 'I quit. You're a b**** for talking to Mary the way you have and [how you've] been treating us.
'So, I'm out. Good luck,' he says before walking out.
Sandy, for her part, doesn't rise to the paint and merely nods her head and says 'OK.'  
After the video went viral, Maxwell told Jam Press that it was 'the best decision he has ever made' and he 'has no regrets whatsoever.' 
'I quit my job because of my regional manager Sandy. She was being very rude and talking down to my manager Mary and our leasing agent Nicole,' he explained. 
He had actually already put in two weeks' notice when he made the dramatic scene, but decided to make a more abrupt exist after some drama in the days leading up the video.

Earlier that day, he said, his leasing agent and manager had come into his office complaining about how badly they were treated by Sandy the previous day. 
Later the manger returned to his office crying.  
'We talked and she vented about not feeling good enough, she was feeling talked down to and very belittled,' Maxwell said. 
'She was done. She was going to put her keys on her desk that night and leave. I told her I was going to walk out too but I had some choice words for Sandy.'
Maxwell said he started to feel extremely nervous in the buildup to facing Sandy and the realization of what he was about to do set in.
'I started to record,' he said. 'I walked in and tossed my keys on Mary's desk, looked at her and called her a b****, told her why she was that in my eyes, and walked out.
Another colleague walked out too, which affirmed to Maxwell he’d done the correct thing.

Maxwell continued: 'I got in my car and drove home, elated about what I was feeling. I took back my power. I stood up for my manager, and I felt that this was the beginning of something new.
'In my mind, I knew that I was going to have to work hard and strive for what was going to come next. I had no backup plan,' he went on. 
Maxwell was stunned that within moments of sharing his TikTok, he started seeing responses from viewers. 
'A lot of friends were surprised that it happened but were overall happy,' he said. 'Some friends agree with what I did and some don't.
'I have received a lot of backlashes but equal respect and people telling me that I have inspired them.' 
Maxwell said he is motivated by the positive responses and is loving the platform his video has created.
'I’m excited,' he said. 'I've always dreamed of building a platform where I could talk about anxiety, depression and fighting suicide.
'If you're at a job and you're not happy, why stay there? Your mental health is more important than a paycheck. Because you can still go somewhere else and get something better,' he said

'This video was the first step in that direction, I hope to keep going and making a difference and creating more relatable viral videos. It was so empowering to stand up for my manager and take my power back.'
In a follow-up clip, he urged others to quit jobs where they are unhappy.
'If you're at a job and you're not happy, why stay there? Your mental health is more important than a paycheck. Because you can still go somewhere else and get something better, in my opinion.'
As for critics who say he should be worried about finding a new job — especially if future employers come across this video — Maxwell insists he's not worried.
'Maybe I'll be my own boss,' he said.
