Bad and horrible annoying boss becomes angry when employee takes vacation and goes off the grid, work, office, family

Entitled Boss Loses It When Vacationing Employee Is Unreachable

Vacation time is precious. Every day that most of us salaried workers toil equals a percentage of a day of freedom. That freedom can be enjoyed in many different ways: a little staycation with your partner, ordering fancy takeout and sleeping in. Or perhaps a beach getaway, sleeping and drinking on the sand, letting the salt water rejuvenate ones body. Whatever the flavor of vacation, there is one important and universal truth for that time: You do not have to work. Most of the time we are acti…

People share stories about quitting their jobs, restaurant workers

Restaurant Workers Share All Their Best-Ever Quitting Stories

I've never quit a job . Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I can endure a situation far longer than is healthy for me. Lord knows I've spent years in relationships that didn't serve me. I slogged through the toxicity because change is scary. I once stayed at a job for seven years even though they only gave me a single raise, and forced me to work in a non-heated, building with no electricity in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. I want to be more like the people who throw in the t…

Woman Quits Job Because the 'Vibes Are Off,' Inspires Debate On the Etiquette of Quitting

I have only quit a job once in my life, and technically I was still training. I was thrown into the fire at a West Village seafood restaurant, which has since closed, and left to burn. At the time, the only bartending experience I had was pouring wine into the glasses of elderly customers. They decided to train be by having me be the sole bartender on a Friday night service. Needless to say, it didn't go well. I walked out. Despite my experience, it's pretty rare to hear about someone up and qu…

A Reddit story about a woman who got shamed by her CEO for going to the emergency room for dehydration

CEO Shames Pregnant Employee For Going to the Emergency Room

Nobody wants to have a medical emergency , yet sometimes we get shamed or scolded when we do. It's common for people, especially women, to be accused of faking or exaggerating symptoms. Why? Who knows. Usually, the accusation goes that a woman in severe pain is trying to get drugs, attention, or both. It is incredibly dehumanizing to those suffering from excruciating ailments to be dismissed or told that they're making it all up. This kind of dismissal doesn't only happen within the confines of…

Story about a worker who gets fired for saying no to boss when asked to come in for a shift he wasn't scheduled for

Employee Gets Fired For Refusing to Work When He Wasn't Scheduled

One of the best parts about being a salaried employee is that you don't get called in for random shifts on the weekend. At least I don't, but y'all stay safe out there. There's nothing worse than preparing for a nice long day of doing nothing than receiving a call from your manager. When I worked at a dog bakery, I was always the person saying “yes” to picking up this one girls shifts. If it sounds like I was being a pushover, it's because I was a pushover. For me, it was hard to leave money on…

Overworked Nanny Requests Time Off For Sister's Wedding, Entitled Boss Threatens to Fire Her

Taking time off, no matter what your job entails, is absolutely crucial for mental health and general wellbeing. But some employers either don't agree with that, or simply don't care. Such is the case of Redditor u/Nannyneedabreak, whose username kind of says it all. By her account, the twenty-two year old woman has been nannying two amazing kids, aged six and eight. And she's never taken any time off. Seven months ago, she decided to request time off for her sister's wedding this coming weeken…

A Reddit story about a crazy boss who demands restaurant employees sign an NDA and not talk about their work for 25 years

Crazy Boss Makes Employees Sign an NDA Saying They Can't Speak About Their Job For 25 Years

One of life's greatest pleasures is being able to complain about a job you hate . If I wasn't able to tell my close friends and family about the annoying customers and often more annoying coworkers at my customer service jobs, then I don't know how I would be able to survive. Even when things weren't so bad at work, it's fun to share work stories. When I worked at a dog bakery, a customer told me she owned a dog funeral parlor. I was so taken aback that all I could say was, “I'm sorry" To that,…

Respectable Times People Quit Toxic Jobs on the Spot

Jobs can be a lot like relationships. When a person finds the right one, it helps them grow, makes them feel supported, and generally makes life better. But when you find yourself in a toxic workplace, it can do exactly the opposite - make a person feel stressed, anxious, depressed. Basically miserable. But just like in a relationship, it's easy to stay in a toxic situation because it's comfortable. There's something easy about suffering in a way that's familiar. While some people lean into the…

Manager Blasted For Cold Response to Employee's Request to See Dying Sister

Video of woman telling story about quitting job after boss thinks she was lying about sister dying.
Via @hillary.zinks
It's true that the service industry is suffering right now. Nearly every restaurant, cafe, and bar is hiring. While some people have said that it's a result of laziness on the part of workers, we're more inclined to believe that people are starting to get sick of suffering bullshit. TikToker @hillary.zinks is one example of a service worker who wasn't about to allow her employers to treat her like crap. After her sister suffered sudden cardiac arrest that resulted in brain death, Hillary explai…
Dude finds out boss has opened credit card in his name and those of his coworkers, identity theft, wtf.

Underpaid Employees Discover Boss Secretly Opened Credit Cards In Their Names

We see a lot of work horror stories on Reddit - and experience them in real life. I've had several bosses say disgusting things to me (one was, surprisingly, a lawyer) and have suffered from being underpaid and underappreciated for the bulk of my life. And while those plights are pretty awful, they've never straight up committed a crime against me. You'd think a business owner would want to avoid a situation like that, but according to Redditor u/Tronlon, there are, in fact, bosses out there wh…

Wise Thread Explains Why We Need to Be Talking Salary With Our Peers

Talking pay is rarely easy in the workplace. Employers generally discourage salary talk, and looking out for your people can result in accusations of “unionizing." What they're really afraid of is learning what you're worth to them as compared to your colleagues. There are downsides to these conversations - feelings can get hurt, especially when you learn that you make a lot less than a new hire after over a year of helping the company profit. Ultimately, however, knowledge is power, and it's g…

Entire Staff of Bagel Store Quits In Response to Manager's Unjust Termination

We often make fun of employers who compare staff to a family. It's a corny sentiment that rarely rings true. But it seems like for Noah's Bagel Shop in Vacaville, California, the sentiment was a reality. After the store's manager Bre Kowalski was suspended due to a supposed customer complaint, she discovered that her final paycheck had been deposited into her bank account. Instead of giving her the suspension, her employers had decided to fire here - without giving any notification. They eventu…

Painfully Relatable Work Memes for Everyone on the Grind

As a child, we never saw ourselves growing into a slave to our computers and a 9-5 (let's be real, often 8-8) schedule. We thought we were going to marry Jonathan Taylor Thomas , travel the world, maybe have a few kids, and enjoy our lives dining at fancy restaurants and shopping at designer clothing stores. Things went a bit differently than we expected. The unsurprising truth is that we all hate working. Why do we even do this? Like, all of us, collectively? What's the point? Can't we just al…
