A bartender has been praised for quitting his job after his boss told him he needed to 'stay ready for work' and not drink too much on his days off.
The exchange, which was shared on Reddit, kicked off with the boss texting the bartender at 2.59am saying: "I need you to come in 11am-10pm today, we have an event scheduled and one bartender."
The bartender politely told him 'no thank you' before reminding it him was his day off.
The boss told the bartender he needed to be a 'team player' and asking once again that he go into work tomorrow.
Understandably given that it was in the early hours of the morning, the bartender replied: "Why are you just now telling me at 3 am that you need me to work 11 hours tomorrow?
"I've had a few drinks and I don't feel like coming into work hungover and working for that long on my day off."
At this point, the boss says: "You need to stay ready for work, getting too drunk is not a good look if you can't stay prepared, sometimes things happen and we need to cover each other."
The bartender then asks: "You're telling the bartender to not drink on his time off? Wanna go tell the chefs to not each off the clock, too?" Before explaining that he would have been happy to cover had he been given more notice, but as it was it was late and he was drunk.
He then questioned his boss about if he knew how to tend the bar, before saying that even if he didn't there were cards explaining how each drink was made.
This appears to get the boss' back up as he tells the bartender that they would be 'talking about this attitude' next time he was on shift.
But the bartender went on to say he had absolutely no intention of going back into work again, telling his boss: "Bartenders are needed all over the place now. I think I'll just go work at one of the dozens of places hiring around here. I'm fed up with you."
After his boss suggested he didn't make 'an impulsive decision' he would 'regret', the bloke hit back: "Eat. My. A*s."
Well, that's one way to hand in your notice.
