The Groupon Guide to: Knowing When to Quit

Sometimes it's better just to quit now than to see it through and find out what it feels like to be a winner (they're eternally happy). Here are some examples of times when you should quit:

• You're ahead.
• You're last.
• You feel like you might throw up.
• They're giving personal pan pizzas to everyone who quits.
• Your mentor has downgraded you from "protégé" to "ongoing frustration."
• You have a chance to create a new identity for yourself in a small New England town if you just walk away now.
• Quitting is "your thing," according to all of your past fiancés.
• No one wants you to win because you're a villain, and for you, winning means selling a bunch of elementary schools to an evil corporation that will turn them into recycling centers.
