This person’s job was less flexible than advertised and they really didn’t hold back
Over on Reddit the subReddit ‘antiwork’ is full of stories of people who quit their jobs because of invariably outrageous bosses – and exactly how they did it.
And this is a classic case in point, shared by Redditor meghanerd after their job turned out to be rather less flexible than they were led to believe.
Here’s how meghanerd set it up.
“Job was described as work from home regularly but must be able to come in-person as needed. After learning on Day #1 that “as needed” meant Mon-Fri 9-5, had to pull teeth to WFH Tue/Thu. Expressed my concerns a couple of times to no avail before putting my foot down. Felt good.”
And the exchange with their boss that has just gone viral.
And here are just a few of the things people were saying about it.
‘Why do employers lie about this? I was applying for jobs today and there were so many jobs blatantly lying about being remote.’
“You need to give two weeks notice”
“Actually, I don’t”
‘Im having a discussion like this with my boss and regional director right now. Why the hell am I unable to do REMOTE SECURITY remotely???’
‘Uhhh….you clearly haven’t thought this out. How are you suppose to get your free slice of pizza and feel like a family?’
And just in case you were wondering what happened next.
‘Oh yeah, I never returned my keys/ID. I told my former boss I’d need to clock in for my commute to do that, or he’d need to pay for shipping. He declined, and this ain’t a charity.’
