The work environment has turned toxic and dangerous to me, and I'm not sure that I can survive until June, so I'm looking at February 28.

I'm always curious just exactly what this means when I read such comments. What is toxic? What is dangerous?

I'm sure there are reasons behind such comments and understand everyone has a hurt button that can get pushed, but I'm always curious just how dramatic words such as dangerous and toxic get used to describe a situation.
