Entitled Boss Learns A Hard Lesson After Demanding Employee To Work On His Day Off
It's laughable when someone thinks they're above you just because of their title, but that illusion crumbles easily when put to the test. When this worker (OP) refused to come into work during their scheduled leave, which was "approved months ago,", their manager got pushy and even called them "replaceable." But the tables turned when you quit on the spot, leaving the manager scrambling.
At the time of writing, this post had received more than 45,800 upvotes, and the main story was shared as a screenshot of a supposed text message conversation between the manager and OP (referred to as Dan). Kudos to Dan for standing up to their abusive boss and holding his ground. Now, let's dive right into the juicy details and see the reactions from Redditors by scrolling down!
Here is OP’s full story:
The manager asked OP to cover a shift for a sick employee, but OP declined as it was his day off, and his boss insisted he come in at 3.
Despite OP explaining that he had a day off and plans to go hunting, his boss insisted he come to work, threatened to deny his time off, and confidently said, "watch me."
Right away, after OP responded by quitting, his boss backtracked and attempted to justify his actions.
No doubt about it, this post went viral faster than a sneeze in a crowded room, and boy, did it catch everyone's attention! Here are some of the redditors comments expressing their disgust at the manager’s self-importance:
