We live in the times of the cruel job market where you basically have to shower in a sea of cold “Good luck in your future endeavors!” application rejections to even get to the point of an interview with absolutely no promise of getting a position.
Getting rejected is something all job seekers grow accustomed to, even though it melts your confidence with each letter, leaving you with a sense of last hope until you finally get your job and everything suddenly seems like a bad dream, a nightmare, to be honest.
So it’s only fair that many workers do everything they can to maintain their job even if that means they have to put up with the boss from hell. The subreddit “Antiwork” is a shelter for those who think of ending work, including those who have had enough of their employers and had to expose their deeds online.
Below is a list of the worst screenshots submitted by employees who basically deserve a medal for their patience. Scroll down and be sure to share your own experiences working with a bad boss in the comments, if you have one. And if you don’t, then we are happy for you!
I Made The Mistake Of Calling In Sick For My Shift 8 Hours Before It Started. No Regrets
While you don’t have to be best friends with your boss, it’s only fair you two get along as much as possible, making it a healthy workplace environment to be in from 9 to 5 on a daily basis. But, sadly this is not always the case. A recent survey from jobsite Monster.com polled almost 1000 people openly seeking new jobs and found out some shocking revelations.
In fact, when asked why they wanted to leave their current employer, a whopping 76 percent of jobseekers named a "toxic" boss as the reason. Of course, we can debate for ages what the term “toxic” is exactly referring to as it may range from being a jerk to someone who is too demanding, micromanages everything, barks out orders, constantly criticizes his workers or exhibits inappropriate behavior.

One thing is clear—a toxic boss is someone who poisons the workplace with toxicity instead of using their power to motivate, inspire and understand their employees. Meanwhile, 26 percent of the employees in the Monster survey said their boss was "power-hungry" or only looking out for themselves. 18 percent called their boss a “micromanager” and 17 percent said their boss is “incompetent.” The other 15 percent said their boss is never around and doesn’t seem to care.

Another poll that surveyed 2,000 American office workers showed that they would rather have more feedback from their managers than more money. In fact, 53 percent of those surveyed said that more feedback on their role is the number one thing they want to see more of from their boss. Surprisingly, it turned out to be even more important than extra compensation (48%) and more honest communication (48%).

Moreover, 78 percent of the respondents who have been employed, seven in ten, have admired one of their managers as a role model. The results suggest that great managers, CEO and bosses are often overlooked in company’s success and play a vital role in keeping employees on top of their game.
Incredibly, an admirable boss can have so much positive and long-term influence on their employees that it may have a direct effect on their behavior. The survey found that 71 percent of the respondents said their role models directly impact their behavior and choices on a daily basis.
