The Boss Thought They Were Ovary-acting

, , , , , | Working | March 16, 2020

A few months ago, my best friend had a cancer scare and had to go in for emergency surgery. Her sister worked for a Japanese company that, among other things, manufactures motorcycles and has a manufacturer site in the Great Plains — which is a little more west than the Midwest for you non-USA folk.

The sister asked her bosses to get the day of the surgery off so she could be with my friend. Her bosses said no and something along the lines of, “It’s just a surgery. You can see her on your day off.”

As I am sure many of you are, I was outraged. I messaged them across their various US social media outlets expressing my anger. Unfortunately, they never got back to me, most likely because I left out names and only provided the location. 

Luckily, the friend did not have cancer, just a naughty left ovary that decided it wanted to scare everyone and randomly exploded. The ovary was removed and my friend went on to recover just fine!

I hear some of you saying that there’s no conclusion about the bosses. Well, guess what?! I recently found out from the sister that the bosses who told her that emergency surgery wasn’t important… got fired. The sister herself is about to start another job that has a much more employee-friendly policy, so happy endings for everyone!
