In this viral post, commenters are shocked about this employer’s behavior and support the worker’s subsequent decision to leave.
Worker u/issathrowaway2 has posted to the r/antiwork subreddit seeking advice, and a little understanding, from discontented fellow workers. They describe working for a small, family-owned business that wraps cars. They are 24 years old and note that it is their first job in this industry.
This latest incident has caused them to throw in the towel, but u/issathrowaway2 has been looking to leave this job for at least six months. They only decided to stay on longer once they were, begrudgingly, given a raise.
Their boss had asked them to come in on their day off and help out as they had some “good customers” who were demanding same-day service on a Saturday. When what was supposed to be a 2-hour job ended up taking 10, they had to cancel the freelance appointment they had booked to make it work.
When they came in the next day… They learned that the entitled customer had complained over an insignificant detail. After being berated by the boss for this, it was all over.
