A standard workday consists of an office atmosphere that serves as a temporary house, with colleagues serving as long diatribe friends and your boss serving as the puppeteers who manipulate your behavior. Some bosses are the worst! Claiming credit for work you put in hours of effort, and virtually always requiring you to work on Saturdays and Sundays as well as other holidays. Sometimes people are fired from their jobs for no apparent reason, and other times it is because the companies or bosses for whom they worked were the underlying sources of their problems.
It’s never a nice experience to get dismissed from your job. People get fired for a variety of reasons, including downsizing the company, code of conduct offenses, and even a manager simply not liking the person… Although there are some legitimate reasons for being rejected, the majority of them are bizarre, implausible, and amusing. However, when you are dismissed, there is a part of your heart that never wants to visit that place ever again in your life. You have the impression that “good riddance! I can be able to discover something else.” But what if your boss approaches you after you’ve been fired to ask whether you’d be available to cover a shift? In fact, the justification for the demand is even more ludicrous than the demand itself. The reason why your manager wants you to cover for a shift is that you don’t have children, thus you wouldn’t have a problem spending Easter at your work location. What would you do if anything like this happened to you? Will you just go back to work that shift or would you rather shut the boss up by saying NO?
This thread was posted to the r/antiwork subreddit by the employee, Redditor u/Ok-Character3000,
When her supervisor fired her and then requested her to cover a shift a few days later, she told him flatly that she would not do it. In fact, the people on Reddit agreed that this was the best strategy for dealing with bosses like that. Continue reading to find out how the situation played out!
1. It is quite ridiculous to ask a new employee to go out of state for four weeks!
2. The absurdity of this situation is off the charts!
3. She definitely did the right thing by not going back!
4. They are, without a doubt, a bunch of idiots.

The majority of people have worked under a manager who was rude, unjust, or militant at some point in their careers. Sometimes it is necessary for bosses or managers to bear the repercussions of their own poor decisions and actions. And in this particular instance, the employer’s refusal to return to work despite the manager’s request that he cover the shift appears to be delicious, sweet retribution for terminating the employee for what appears to be no reason at all!
If this has happened to you before at your place of employment, tell us about it. Is it possible that you’ve worked for a boss who made demands that were absolutely unreasonable? Assuming you have a mental image in your head “Yess! That’s mee, right there.” Then, you should tell us about your experiences.
