Sometimes you may apply for a really great job in a reputable company, but the boss is the worst. Having an awful boss can make, otherwise pleasant job, a real nightmare. Do you how that feels? We picked some stories from Reddit about people’s experience with horrible bosses.
I had a boss that absolutely hated me. After realizing she wasn’t qualified for the position and had already slept with two different guys at the company, I came to the conclusion she was a joke and to just be dismissed.
I never paid much attention to her and when she’d show up at my building once every blue moon I kind of just ignored her. I was busy and didn’t have time to play her games.
She wrote me up for being late on three separate occasions. 1 min late, 3 min late and 6 min late. I lived an hour from work and had to deal with traffic, I left my house 2 hours early most days to account for this. But when there’s a wreck, there’s not much you can do as the freeway is backed up and side roads are clogged. Each time I got stuck in traffic I called to let her know.
Still wrote me up in hopes to eventually fire me. So I started leaving the house crazy early, I’d get in super early and leave early. She haaaated it.
Eventually, her behavior got her fired and people till this day remember her and laugh at what a horrible person she was. I also had that write up removed from my file as it was recognized that she was treating many of her employees unfairly.
