My boss messaging about the team not wanting to work 60+hours during a pandemic

notmildlyinteresting

- "respect or professionalism" - that message Choose one.


Yung_Jack

Let it also be known that one of our workers caught CV19 this week whilst our company sent us out to areas near hotspots. So yeah, none of us want to work.


tallandlanky

I'm sure the pay is shit and the benefits are bare minimum or nonexistent too, right?


HerbalGamer

But there's cold pizza in the break room!


warpenguin55

TBH I love cold pizza. Not enough to make up for shit pay though


MrPlasma145

Seems like the boss is just itching to have the whole staff quit on him


IntroductionSlut

You guys sound ungrateful. 20 hours overtime is amazing.


RunAsArdvark

Hard to hear you with all those boots in your mouth. Wut?


madsislosingit

You shouldn’t need to work overtime to pay bills


Devilstangs2

20 hours mandatory overtime vs 20 hours optional overtime is a HELL of a difference.


AnastasiaNo70

Amen.

DatBoi780865

Quick, someone get this guy an ambulance! I think he's choking on the Corporate Cock!


northshorebunny

Yeah. Sounds like a threat. I don’t take well to threats at work


livinglitch

"learn to respect others and stop thinking if just yourself" *Is only thinking about their profits*


devwright56

Also asks for people to show manners in the most mannerly way possible, ominous threats.

I haven't gone in for maybe 7 months now, already looking for other work.


redditcampos

Love being in group chats on the job I don’t work at anymore lol, want to see the drama


imnos

OP, can you just add all of us to the convo so we can pitch in?


the22ndrealm

PLEASE


_volkerball_

I'd demonstrate my drive and ambition by quitting that job.


flatearthers_suck

i'd demonstrate my drive and ambition by quitting his job.


cjzj_1288

i would demonstrate my drive and ambition by quitting the job


pennerimperator

I would demonstrate my drive and ambition by selling his company


smuckola

I would demonstrate my drive and ambition by quitting *all jobs*


tyleritis

“You’ve convinced me, boss! I’m showing I have ambition by quitting right now to find something better!”


KnopeWeCan24

Oh fuck that I’d quit


Yung_Jack

Very toxic workplace could you tell? lol

Yung_Jack

We've actually lost quite a few good workers & they haven't learnt. A company like that never does


mpm206

>We've actually lost quite a few good workers Clearly not enough!


the_real_dairy_queen

Obviously it’s not the company’s fault. It’s the bad-mannered, childish employees!


CatLemonade10

Unfortunately they’ll just replace them with someone else, so even if they were aware of what an awful employer they are, they wouldn’t care until everyone quits and nobody else applies to work there


sirchtheseeker

That’s why I think it is important to tell people upfront when they get there what the real culture and management is like


PartridgeViolence

Fuck you pay me.


Warhound01

Money talks, bullshit walks.


JasontheFuzz

*pay me enough to live on with just 40 hours a week


dispassioned

Hahah you love to see it. This dude writing about professionalism and “gO bACK tO PrImArY ScHoOL” at the same time. He real mad. I’d call his bluff on the two trucks with 6 people and QUIT. After I called out his hypocrisy and defended other staff members.


aquietearthquake

I hear quitting is an option in these sort of situations.


flatearthers_suck

or just don't show up while keep getting money as much as possible


blueblizzard08

Sounds like someone needs to get off their ass and get to work. Where does this guy get off texting other people when as the boss he surely earns more and therefore can do much more of the work. What a chode. I hope everyone walks.


SebastianIsABoi

This boss has absolutely no self awareness and seems like hes a narcissistic piece of shit who manipulates everyone into thinking they are awful people for not wanting to do exactly what he says. This is just another case of guilt tripping and psychological abuse from another piece of shit boss. I’m so sorry you had to even read this message on your own phone. I’d send him your phone bill for messaging you on your personal time about some wack ass bullshit


seancurry1

“send out two trucks a day with 6 quality staff members who support each other” Sounds like it wouldn’t be 60+ hour weeks. Yes. Do that.


TGOTR

My boss said the same thing, I was being selfish for not wanting to work 72 hours a week. Didn't matter if I worked the 72 hours, if I stayed there 10 years, I'd still be in the same spot, with the same duties, doing the job of more than 5 people by then by myself, getting yelled at for being behind and not asking for help and then yelled at for asking for help. I'd only be making $2.50 more per hour in 10 years if I was lucky.


Givemebitchdrinks

Eyyy i worked 60+ hours loading trucks (roughly 30,000 steps per day, 4-5000 boxes) for 6 months during covid, eventually dropped to part time, then last month I walked into the managers' office and told everyone to go fuck themselves and left.


gibbyhikes

Screenshot saved for that unemployment hearing.


Jaki54321

I love how he tries to shame the employees by using other employees as his premise for his argument. I doubt that any employee was complaining about not working enough when we are in the middle of a pandemic and still working 60+ hours. 🙄


Hot-Ad-6967

Your boss is immature and have the audacity to lecture the overworked workers about the maturity. How toxic is that?


pm-me-ur-cattos

Classic projection


IntoxiCaitlyn

It’s so cringey how loyal these fucktards are to companies that don’t give a single solitary shit about them. Sad really.


unnameableway

If I got this text message I would quit instantly.


ZeBugHugs

'better yourselves and develop a future'? Lmao, what future? More of whatever shit labor your company does?


MooseJaw44

What the fuck even is the job?


Robotfoxman

I wish there was a netflix doc about people who want to become bosses. They truly are a different breed of psychopath.


JonLane81

Failed state problems.


Yasai101

Lol better yourself? How.. fucking how you fucking karen.


cool_memes

People who run businesses think they are gods 🤣


carmachu

Sounds like the boss needs to take their own advice


CTBthanatos

>who don't give two shits about anyone but yourselves Sounds like employers, landlords, millionaires, billionaires, capitalism in general. Grow up, be an adult and stop getting so upset when poor people retaliate against the capitalism death cult lmao.


Christicuffs

I like how they say "grow up, be an adult" when literally this is the most childish thing a boss can do, openly complaining that his company doesn't have good enough workers to the entire staff in what seems to be a text. This person needs to take their own advice, grow up, be an adult, and show some professionalism.


deltaroyale

my boss started calling people motherfuckers in the work group chat. Guess who got a new boss shortly after?


Oxyfire

"Show some drive and ambition" = care more about making me money.


Convoy_DnB

Does the C stand for cunt?


throwsrug

This looks like more may have transpired. Can I see if there were any messages beforehand?


2HourLongShower

Quit talking about it and do it then!


Alekazammers

Gotta send a message when you quit. You can't just abandon ship. We need to shout it loud and proud over and over... it's the only peaceful weapon we have.


Spare_Expert_1247

And "I quit" good luck with the trucks


monked80

So this idiots idea of reward his "good worker" is having them make up the labor for others? I'm damn sure this place runs on bare minimum staff like most companies these days and is designed to collapse the moment 1 person calls out. That's not how humans work!


ay-nako

It's funny they always think we have to be nice to them and sacrifice ourselves just for the good of the company. That's not professionalism.


dog5and

I would loooove for my boss to try and talk to me like that


_OnlyVans_

If my boss texted me I’d block his number. Texting isn’t professional


DogDaze76

Lol fuck that guy, he should act a little more professional while simultaneously getting over himself.


thedrunkenrebel

reply with "k, **(like emoji)**"


leftrightmonkman

This would be harassment in my country. Fuck this guy.


yerrrrr10

Was this message supposed to represent professionalism? Because it's giving the exact opposite.


Ryland_Zakkull

Did you quit?


Buttock

Please don't just quit but organize a whole walk-out, if it's feasible.


JoeDiBango

*Que* walk out.

Translation: "Why can't my workers do 80h unpaid overtime every month so I could make millions?'


OvercompressedGoat

C short for cunt ?


Nazeron

You guys only care about yourselves, when you should care about the "company" which I'd kine and acts in my financial interest.


ULLR3

Fuck that asshole


shinHardc0re

The only correct reply is "u mad?"


leavemeto6leed

Your boss can suck my dick. Who tf uses profanity at they’re employees? Pieces of shit that’s who.


kd5407

I hope he d*es a slow painful death, respectfully


xTHEKILLINGJOKEx

Quit


pm_me_bulldogs

“If you’re so hardworking and ambitious you can do it yourself then fuck”


Sir_Spaghetti

Looking forward to hearing how "motivational" this 20th century attitude turned out to be.


Goblinking83

Report him for creating a hostile work environment. The language in that message is completely unprofessional and childish.


handsomerob5600

Fun Fact: You can punch bosses in the face.


lcastill1

Fuck that guy


AnastasiaNo70

He or she needs to eat a giant bag of dicks. They’re the ones making better money, but you’re supposed to be worried about THEIR sleep? Fuck that.


ShiddyWidow

These fucking bosses are so entitled


EmptyBox5653

Yeah that would be it for me.


apcali209

I would send this to HR if your company has one.


Yung_Jack

It does not. Boss IS the HR.


theunmaskedcucumber

Yes masta right away masta let me lick your boot masta


bud215

Fuck that guy


DepressedCatMom_98

I would send that screenshot to every single employee under him and be like this is what our boss thinks of us


campapathy

This in the uk? The primary school bit made me.think that it is


Yung_Jack

Nope

NUMBERSUSED11

Publicly name and shame this clown. If you can afford it , maybe a billboard near the office....


Yung_Jack

Wouldn't that make me liable for defamation & to be sued?


NUMBERSUSED11

Not sure , but I doubt posting a private conversion publicly would be , your just quoting them ... but not sure , if your in the uk, they have some ridiculous laws
