    Business forget that the only reason they're in business is because of customers and employees providing goods or services to customers,and having a female boss/supervisor is going to ruin every business sooner or later.

    Omg I have a story for this. This is my dads work, not mine.So all over my dads work are these signs that day stuff like “We do not tolerate drugs or alcohol in this work space.” But then you go into the kitchen freezer...and there are two giant bottles of straight up vodka

    Not applying the rules to every employee seems to be a big source of abuse.

    I once worked at an auditing company and I made a mistake on my counts. The first manager talked to me about it and I said sorry and thought that was the last of it. Then a second and a third came to talk to me about the same mistake and it seem like every manager their had to say something to me about it.

    Sadly, absolutely none of these suprise me. I worked at dominos and the store was understaffed and always incredibly busy. So our pizzas always came to the customers really late. Delivery usually took about 2 hours on a typical dinner rush. So what do they decide to do? They bring upper management in to 'help' get our pizzas to the door more quickly. What did we need? More delivery drivers, obviously. What did the management team do instead? They switched the spoodle (the tool used for spreading pizza sauce around on the dough), breathed down our necks as we topped pizzas on the make line, and rearranged the order of the toppings (which threw everyone off and made us work more slowly). If they would have set their pride aside and helped deliver some pizzas by car it would have been much more helpful. Upper management ended up stressing out the GM so much that she yelled "fuck you" to her boss when customers were around and threw her hat on the ground as she left. I dont blame her.

    I had to quit my last job because my manager threatened to fire me if I didn’t get rid of my anxiety. I was having a panic attack at work every couple of days after an extremely traumatic experience I had went through, and it was seen as too disruptive. I want to clarify that I had asked several times to be moved to a less stressful position until I could work through what I was facing during the aftermath of the traumatic event, and they declined it. I tried to explain that my anxiety is a legally diagnosed disorder, and I don’t choose to have it, but my manager avidly argued with me. She kept telling that feeling anxious is a conscious decision that I participate in, which I can somehow choose to stop making.She wouldn’t relent, so I had to quit.

    For my old job in construction as a labourer we were given sick days. On sock days we get paid for those days but barely anyone does because we need to get a note from the doctor now. I mean wtf you can see I am not feeling well and even when you go home and they say they will log it in they don't!

    The retail pharmacist: so true. I work 10 hour shifts and only get 20 min ‘legal’ break so I run to the break room, wolf down my food (usually sandwich because microwave food takes up precious minutes), pee, and run back to work.

    I was a mid-level manager in Arizona state goverment. We had some wonderful workers, but many were entitled whiners who compulsively tried to work out their emotional issues in the workplace through attention seeking behaviour. A few of them could have been diagnosed as sociopaths and it was horrendous the things they got away with. Upper management was no better. They lacked both a moral compass and common sense. In addition to unethical and self-serving behavior, they made incomprehensible decisions about procedures and also implemented many of the ridiculous rules in this video. It created chaos and low morale. The agency had a 42% turnover rate. The good people left while the unbalanced workers stayed for decades and the Machiavellian types got promoted. Try being sandwiched between those two groups of people! One day I watched a slide show with all of upper mgmt rep'd by a bunch of dots at the top of the page and all the workers rep'd by a bunch of dots at the bottom. The office manager (me) was represented by a single dot in the middle looking like the narrowest part of an hourglass. When I saw the situation laid out so clearly like that, I started preparing to get out of there!

    I once worked somewhere that would change your shift without telling you then ask why you weren’t there... like I distinctly remember DOUBLE checking my roster at the end of the day on a Saturday, we were closed on the Sunday, then Monday morning when I think I can sleep in I get a call saying where are you your meant to be here.... what? Happened too often especially since I had another job who kept my hours the same every week to make sure they knew exactly when they could have me to make things easy for them but they’d always roster me the days I wasn’t available so I kept having to cancel shifts cos I just couldn’t be in two places at once..

    To be fair, weave is really expensive and technically isn't dye. It's hair braided or sewed in. Hell, just getting my hair washed, deep conditioned, and trimmed is over a 100. Braided is nearly 200 and I have to provide my own fake hair. I get the ladies frustration over it, but rule wise, there is a distinction and would hold up in court in the companies favor due to wording. Best she could do was argue about racial discrimination as weave is a more African American thing, but technically black people don't need weave and are still following the policy and could argue she could go get fake hair a different color too.

    Military: at 18 years old you are responsible for billions of dollars in government/ military weaponry , equipment, you can certify aircraft are safe to fly combat missions over seas however we have mandatory room inspections to make sure you don’t have black listed dangerous items like candles, toasters, charcoal, or aerosol in your room because they’re fire hazards and your not responsible enough to handle said items.

    I worked for a charity shop that did the fucking call in thing. You would get a schedule with a 30 minute shift and you had to call the store in that window and they would tell you whether to come in, but sometimes they would tell you to be there in an hour and sometimes 10 minutes. I almost got fired twice because I was 45 minutes away (public transit in this city is shit) and they wanted me there in 10 minutes. There was also no end time provided, you show up whenntheybtell you and you're allowed to go home when they tell you you're done so you usually work a 10-12 hour shift with maybe one break because they don't put you on the break schedule. The way overtime worked was that you only were paid overtime if you were scheduled for more than 40 hours a week, so this way you could work a 12 hour shift 6 days a week and they would never have to pay you overtime. I'm not even sure that is legal here. I know they were threatened with a lawsuit a couple times over it, but most people just quit. When I quit they were kind of fucked because I was literally the only cashier who could count money in their head. Two of the cashiers could not count by 5s, even out loud.
