What is it with dishonest business owners that want goodwill in return for their dishonesty? The idea of “good faith” or goodwill between the two parties has long since been abandoned by the time workers are ready to quit their jobs without giving notice. Sure, there are those rare occasions where an employee is to blame for the conflict, but when this occurs, an employer will take this one instance as justification to treat the rest of their staff unfairly going forward “to make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
Reddit user u/cloudykiwistar managed to discover “better work [they’re] happy with and pays more” after giving up on a job that was “anguish to [their] mental health.” Sounds like everyone is winning, doesn’t it?
Not for their previous employer, who reappeared in their lives with a vengeance and demanded their return. According to the employer, u/cloudykiwistar initially verbally agreed to labor a full year. Do you believe that defense would have been persuasive if the employer had decided they no longer required them? The poster was quickly reassured by commenters that they owed their former employer nothing, and they advised them to block them. Below is the story by OP in her own word Now take a look at the screenshots of this topic, which was published to r/antiwork earlier this week, by scrolling below. Dont forget to read the comments of the Redditors at the end of the post. Scroll down to have a story time.
1. OP quitted a job that was harsh on his mental health but his boss texted him to come back as he promised to complete a year. OP asks the redditor should he reply or not.
2. It needs to be clear that there was only a verbal agreement. OP also started doing another job but the old boss keeps emailing him
You that you have read the story. it’s time for you to see what Redditors had to say on this. It is obvious that the boss was being illogical and reacted for no reason. Read till the end to see what are other people’s opinions on this. Don’t forget to share your own opinion at the end of this article too.
3. There was no legal contract so OP is free to go wherever he wants to go
4. The boss is actually trying to manipulate OP and he must know that
5. There should be a polite conversation in which OP should tell the boss eh no longer works there and has obligation to go back
6. At will work both ways, you owe them nothing
What is your take on the story? Do you agree with the behbaior that OP showed? What would you do if you were in her situation? I think that the biss should have provided Op their space as no one leaves a job without a reason. there is no point in dragging them back to work.
