That’s the last straw:

noun:  the final act or insult; the act that finally calls for a response.

the last i.e. final in a series of unpleasant events that finally makes you feel that you cannot continue to accept a bad situation anymore.

If a camel has been loaded with a lot of luggage and you still keep loading, at some point one more straw will break the back of camel.

Example:

That was the last straw when he came to office late for the 3rd consecutive day and got fired.
