Boss Feels ‘Disrespected’ And ‘Disappointed’ After Exhausted Employee Of 4 Years Hands In His Notice

Recently, a story went viral on the Antiwork subreddit about an employee who just quit his customer service job.

“I put in my 4 weeks notice yesterday at my manager’s office and sent it to him per email as well, since he mostly works from home now,” the Redditor ComoElFuego wrote in a post which amassed 22.2k upvotes and 1467 comments.

It turns out his manager was far from impressed with his employee quitting, so he messaged him via Whatsapp to try and convince him to stay. “I feel like I just broke up with a crazy ex,” the Redditor wrote after saying how the manager started pressuring him, making fun of him, and even calling him disrespectful.

It’s so funny how it’s So DiSrEsPeCtFuL for an employee to give 4 weeks notice, yet I got zero warning when I was laid off from my job of 10 years.

So... I see this type of behaviour continues - and thanks to posts like these - it's finally coming to light!!! This kind of behaviour is... abhorrent (from the manager). I feel for this person. Since when was it okay to do things like shame your employees for providing sufficient (or in this case, it looks like MORE than sufficient) notice? I had a manager once grab my arm and SHAKE me asking "WHAT is going ON?" - regarding my resignation notice that I gave after I had already tried to talk to them about mistreatment, favouritism, and the fact that there was this *very suspicious trend* of me ONLY getting shifts shortly after telling them "I have second job"...but during the time when I really needed them (and said as much)... there just **HAPPENED** to be noooo shifts available... at all.

I was a new RN and had just bought my first house. My then Asst Mgr assigned me to work on my day off which also the day of my closing. I did not show up because she knew the deal. She then attempted to discipline me for not showing up. I called my union rep and the issue was dropped. I then decided that I would leave the job I loved but hated that racist nordic BITVH!!! When I turn in my resignation she had the nerve to tell me I couldn't quit because I just bought a new house. I calmly
