Revealing one of the most absurd reasons why they were fired, an employee called on fellow workers to reveal the bleak realities of management systems.
After busting one’s guts out all week, what most employees want is to relax during their short weekend and be able to get a breather from the overwhelming work life. In the midst of this, when work comes up on a scheduled holiday, an employee should have every right to shun it and focus on themselves. However, today’s workplaces have forgotten the importance of work-life balance and many employers are treating workers just as they please. u/SubjectInterest-505 shared a post on Reddit about the injustice done to them when their employer fired them over a ridiculous reason and viewers are just about done with the toxicity workplaces are building up.
The former employee mentioned that they were let go from their job and stated that it was likely the most ridiculous reason anyone had been fired. They said, “Today I was let go because a few days ago, I responded to a text from my supervisor on my day off, ‘Please don’t text about work on my day off.’” The employee’s tone in their post revealed that they were far from upset or angry but rather disappointed in a workplace and management that have no problem creating a nuisance for employees. However, if they face even a little of the same, they lose their minds. The employee further revealed what caused them to get fired.
They said sarcastically, “I’m wildly disrespectful and how dare I talk to a direct superior like that.” They also mentioned that their employer put them in the wrong by adding, “The handbook nowhere mentioned that they cannot contact me about work issues on my day off.” The absolute absurdity of employers causes stress and frustration for employees who are simply trying to do their jobs decently. Commenters went wild on the cruelties of work life due to the mindlessness of certain management.
Many even shared their horrible experiences. u/tonysnark81 said, “I got fired from a sandwich shop with 'experts' for asking a customer to please repeat their request on a busy Saturday because I was having trouble hearing them over the music.” u/flyers28giroux0 said, “I got fired from a fast food restaurant in PA and was told it was because I couldn't learn how to make the food. The thing is, I was there for three months and every single day they had me working the drive-through. I think one time, they asked me if I wanted to work the grill because somebody else didn't show up, but I said no because I had no idea how to make anything."
u/KarlKOTD said, “I was fired from a warehouse job because I 'didn't fit in with the family they were trying to build.'" Several others tried to hop into the situation by suggesting measures to take. u/Anaxamenes said, “I double dog dare you to apply for unemployment. They don’t seem like the type to be able to defend and their unemployment insurance rates will be raised to cover your payout .” u/ericleorgav2 said, “File for unemployment. See what their reasoning is if they push back against it.”
