We’ve all had bad jobs with bad supervisors.
It’s like a rite of passage!
That’s why you know when you find a good one because you’ve already dealt with a bunch of BS in the past.
And today we have a story from Reddit that will make all of us who’ve worked sh**ty jobs in the past smile and nod our heads.
Take a look at what happened.
Give two weeks notice? Fine, bye.
“I was working at this clothing store years ago, no commission.
It was the brand’s first store in my area, and I stayed with them for about 2 years. They were pretty desperate too as they hired me on the spot.
Anyway, all the supervisors I liked ended up quitting and the remaining ones were just plain not nice. I was the youngest on the team and they always excluded me and bullied me. I guess jealousy?
Which I never understood, because although I got positive reviews and customers making sure to point out that I helped them, we did NOT have sales commissions.
I just liked to help, and I liked fashion. I also was in school, and they often called me to cover for people (school was close by, so I could be there fast).
I was always adaptable for them, but this one supervisor just had it out for me. My hours got cut, they were messing with my mental health… I needed a change. I applied to this other job and I was quite sure I got it.
I decided I would book two weeks off work, around the time the start date would be. My supervisor did not even want to let me have the time off (despite it being the only days other than exams I had booked off in 2 years). And they are unpaid!
Fast forward to the day before my 2 week vacation. I got the job. I show up at the clothing store (no shift) and ask to speak with my supervisor. We talk, i quit. She had the sarcastic happiness, but I did not care I was over it. The supervisor made it clear that I was still required to work all my shifts for the next two weeks, and that I better not slack.
I smiled at her, thanked her for acknowledging my work ethic, and put my name tag and keys on her desk. She looked confused. I reminded her that I took two weeks off, so this is goodbye.
I turned around and left. Mental health has been so much better without her. The store is now closed permanently.”
Yowza! That really was a good story.
Let’s see how folks on Reddit reacted.
This reader said that this supervisor just seemed downright helpless.
Another person said that some people never really get past their bullying phase and they perpetually act like they’re in high school.
You know you’ve seen it before!
One individual said that only someone who can rightfully be categorized as a “loser” bullies workers this way.
And this reader made an excellent point.
If you don’t know what they’re talking about, go watch “Waiting”!
Have you ever had a really s**tty boss before?
If the answer is YES, tell us all about it in the comments.
Please and thank you!
