Hi everyone,

I am really finding it difficult to recall an idiom which means to leave one's job hurriedly, without even informing one's boss in advance. I suppose it has the word 'drop'. Kindly help me find out that idiom.

It's a bit of a stretch, but "skip out" could be used that way.

One possibility: he dropped the company like a bad habit.

This one works if you are looking for a he-quit-the-job-without notice meaning. If you are looking for a he-left-early-for-the-day-without-permission, then the "skip out" would be appropriate. (American English).
