It’s wild how nepo-babies truly believe they can get away with anything.
This thread was posted to Reddit’s r/AmITheA**hole subreddit by u/meaian, who shared her story about what it’s like to be the only woman and only woman of color on her male-dominated team at work. On top of all that, she also has a coworker who totally got the job on his own. I mean, his uncle just happens to be the CFO and it’s a complete coincidence.
In case you’re incapable of reading into sarcasm, he’s a total nepo-baby who, on top of all that, is ridiculously competitive with the original poster. After she was given the opportunity to attend an event with their boss, he lashed out, using racist and misogynistic micro-aggressions in front of her and her bystander coworker. Of course, she lashed out right back and called him out for being the nepo-hire he is. Now because people who are the products of nepotism are genetically engineered to not be able to handle criticism or the truth, he did not take it well. Ultimately, he told the Redditor she crossed a line and that she’s “lucky” he’s not telling HR.
As the heated discussion in the comments below suggests, the Redditor should still very much go to HR and get ahead of this. He knows he’s in the wrong, which is why he knows he can’t really report her. For similar content, check out this story about a racist Karen who got thrown out of a Panera Bread.
