Sick Of Management

, , , , , | Working | December 4, 2019

(I’ve been sick A LOT this year. It all comes to a head when I get the flu. I call out for three days. On the third day, my boss texts me that I’ve reached the limit on calling out and will get written up if I do it again. I drag my still-sick self into work on Wednesday.)

Boss: “Oh! You’re really sick!”

Me: “Yes, I’m really sick! Do you think I’d call out if I wasn’t?!”

Boss: “Well, some people…”

Me: “Not me, and you know it.”

Boss: “Are you sure you can last today?”

(I see red.)

Me: “After you threatened to write me up? Are you kidding?

Boss: “Don’t shoot the messenger! I told you, it came from upper management.”

Me: “No, you didn’t.”

Boss: “Yes, I did.”

(I show her the text conversation from the previous day.)

Boss: “Huh. Guess I didn’t.”

(I quit not long after.)
