These Horrible Bosses Got Called Out By The Internet

Six Hours Prior

Asking someone to come into work at nine in the morning, the night before, at three in the morning, is ridiculous. Did they expect their employee to be awake? Also, why is that boss up so late? Maybe they’re stressed out and were trying to work on the schedule. Either way, horrible bosses that expect their employees to come to work at short notice need to find another job.

It’s completely unreasonable and there’s no way they’re going to see that late-night message. If they do see it, chances are they’re out partying and will most likely not reply. It’s a common pattern that bosses think the world revolves around them and their job (via Food Is In The House).

No Work, No Problem

If your employee suddenly disappeared from work, what’s the first thing you’d do? Hire another person. Life is short, and time is money. Bosses, even the horrible bosses, don’t have enough time on their hands to wait around for irresponsible employees. But that’s not what happened here.

This employee took time off from work, as you have every right to do. Not only did his boss cut his hours, but he hired other people to work in his place. That’s not cool. This guy needs to find another job where his time off is honored, not used against him (via Food Is In The House).

Depends On The Uncle

Someone who’s grieving deserves sympathy and compassion, especially from their workplace. It’s horrific that this boss complained about their employee who called out because of their uncle who passed away. They have every right to call out and take time for themselves and to be with their family.

Horrible bosses who think their workplace takes precedence over a human life deserve bad karma. The best part about this, though, is the person’s response to their boss’s question. Their boss had no response and instead just walked away, defeated (via Food Is In The House).

Consider This Your Notice

Kudos to this bartender who stuck up for herself and put her foot down. It’s unbelievable that this boss assumed she would come in on her day off, just because Becky canceled. Why is she making it her problem? It should be Becky’s problem.

Also, it shouldn’t even be legal that that boss was threatening her employee with revoking her health insurance. That’s dangerous and incredibly absurd. What if something happened to her? Luckily, this employee had enough audacity to quit her job on the spot and find something else better suited for her (via Food Is In The House).

You’re Caged

Keeping tabs on your employees is one thing, but hanging a camera above them is another. What’s even worse is this boss decided to try and mask the camera with a picture of Nicholas Cage, which doesn’t make any sense.

Shutterstock

It’s pretty obvious there’s a camera behind it, so the picture doesn’t do anything except make the boss look ridiculous. Let’s hope these employees ripped down this picture, placed it on their horrible boss’s desk, and then proceeded to quit (via Food Is In The House).

Full Of Lies

When we apply for a job, we expect to do the job we were hired for. That’s what interviews and meetings are for. You need to prepare as much as possible before starting the job, otherwise, you’re out of luck. Sometimes, horrible bosses sneakily change their employee’s jobs and make them do something other than what they expected.

This Reddit user reluctantly shares their experience with their boss, who not only paid less than what was agreed upon but also changed their job to be something other than what they were hired for (via Reddit).

Nest Of Roaches

Talk about payback! Kudos to this employee who threw their horrible bosses under the bus. They deserved it. After requesting their graduation day off, which is a pretty huge deal, K-Mart denied them. We don’t understand how they could do that or why.

Shutterstock

It’s probably one of the biggest days in anyone’s life, and there’s no way you can miss it. To get them back, they reported the nest of roaches to the health department, probably got them into loads of trouble, and were able to graduate in peace (via Food Is In The House).

Backfire

One way to prevent theft is to secure something with a wire. But when that object you’re trying to secure is a wire cutter, there’s no point. Horrible bosses come up with the worst ideas sometimes.

He was trying to prevent theft and ended up making theft incredibly easy. Not only is this boss pretty stingy, but he’s also not the smartest bulb in the bunch (via Food Is In The House).

Time To Bargain

If someone asks you to come in on short notice, you better know your worth. If a boss really wants you to come in, that’s the best time to bargain your hourly pay. This employee knows what’s up and didn’t waste one second. Instead of agreeing to come in on his time off, he told his boss he’d charge three times his hourly wage and he has a deal, otherwise, he’d go in on Monday.

Shutterstock

A lot of these employees on this list have a lot to learn from this guy. We’re curious what the boss’s response was and if he ended up agreeing (via Food Is In The House).

Step Up

When we apply for a job, it’s usually because we need cash. We don’t have enough funds to dish out hundreds of dollars on a uniform before we start our job. When horrible bosses expect us to have pockets full of cash, it’s unrealistic.

Shutterstock

At least this employee was honest and told their boss they had to order a uniform off of Amazon. We’re not sure if this boss was making a joke about the extra shift or not, but deep down he was probably serious. There’s only one way to make back all that uniform money, and that’s to pick up extra shifts (via Food Is In The House).

No Notice

We’ve seen plenty of horrible bosses asking their employees to come to work last minute, but now we’re seeing a boss asking their employees not to come to work at the last minute. It’s so last minute that they had already taken the bus to work.

Shutterstock

Now, they wasted all that time for nothing, spent money on transportation, and probably shifted plans around because they had work. There’s nothing fair in that at all. Talk about a waste of time. Let’s hope this person was compensated for their travel expenses and was able to pick up an extra shift at some point (via Food Is In The House).

Speak The Truth

This is a slap in the face. When you treat your employees with disrespect, they’re going to eventually stand up for themselves. This employee took it into his own hands and found himself a new job.

Shutterstock

Not only that, but he also told the entire truth to his boss without hesitation. Horrible bosses like this one deserve this kind of text message. He wouldn’t even give the young guy the day off for his birthday! Honestly, it probably felt so empowering sending that message because it felt pretty empowering reading it (via Food Is In The House).

Prioritize School

Working while studying is tough. You’re working two full-time jobs. Keeping up with grades and trying to pay for school at the same time isn’t easy, so props to this student for doing just that. They also sent an endearing message to their boss, who didn’t feel any compassion or sympathy for their employee. To them, working at Panera is more important than studying and getting a degree, which doesn’t make any sense.

Shutterstock

We can’t believe that a boss wouldn’t be flexible with this student’s needs, but it happens. Hopefully, they didn’t stay at that job for much longer and realized their school is more important than Panera (via Food Is In The House).

Every Hour

Could you imagine having the flu and having to answer your boss every single hour while suffering from a high fever? It’s horrific! When you have the flu, you’re usually passing in and out of sleep, slightly delusional from the fever, and too sick to even eat. Of course, you’re not well enough to go to work.

Shutterstock

This boss was probably making them sicker by calling them every single hour and preventing them from getting the rest they needed to feel better. That’s an incredibly unsupportive boss who needs a reality check. Even though this employee admits they needed money at the time, at least they realized they should’ve left the job and will probably do so in the future (via Food Is In The House).

Pepper Packets

What an awful job. Horrible bosses that make their employees do the most tedious, boring tasks need to be fired. After accidentally ordering hundreds of tiny pepper packets instead of a large bag of pepper, this boss made their employee sit there and cut open each packet, one by one, and pour it into a container.

Shutterstock

It looks like this person is going to sit there for a while. It’s a hilarious picture, to say the least, but one of the most tedious tasks in the world. This boss should just put out those packets for customers to use and order a large packet of paper so this person doesn’t have to sit there and do that (via Food Is In The House).

Medical Emergency

Not showing up to work is a big problem, especially in a busy workplace. But an even bigger problem is someone who almost died from an allergic reaction and ended up in the hospital. That’s no laughing matter. Horrible bosses never seem to understand how dangerous medical emergencies can be, and how quickly things can go south. If this person had waited any longer, they would probably never come to work again. Or anywhere else for that matter.

Shutterstock

This boss is lucky their employee is okay and isn’t suffering any major ill effects from the allergic reaction. They didn’t even show any sympathy whatsoever, and instead made it out to be a huge problem. Hopefully, this person took that as a red flag and found another job where their health is respected (via Food Is In The House).

Know Your Rights

Turning your work phone off outside of working hours makes a lot of sense. It’s expected, considering you’re off the clock once you clock out. Something is wrong if an employee expects you to have your phone on during working hours.

Shutterstock

At least this person knew their rights and explained they were allowed to have their phone off after work. That’s called boundaries. Let’s hope their boss understood and didn’t try to make them turn on their phone again outside of their paid work hours (via Food Is In The House).

Expired Tacos

This horrible boss needs to be reported to the health department as soon as possible. It’s incredibly dangerous to serve expired food to customers. There’s an array of health problems that can come with serving expired food.

Shutterstock

Someone could technically sue them if they found out. We can’t believe he’s telling his employee off for following the food guidelines and keeping their customers safe. Do their bosses answer? Fire them. In the end, it’s probably for the best. Let’s hope this boss gets caught one day, though (via Food Is In The House).
