Boss Puts Up Note Telling Employees To Stop Charging Phones As It's Stealing
| Last updated
A pretty angry boss left a note to his employees telling them to stop charging their phones because it’s ‘theft of electricity’.
The message was shared on Reddit recently and the user captioned the post as: "One of a seemingly endless series of unreasonable notes left by my boss.
"It’s great here."
The full note read: “Nobody is entitled to ‘charge up’ any mobile phone or other electrical devices on these premises.
“It is theft of electricity, and you may find a deduction has been made from your pay.
“Phones should be switched off.”
While it is currently unknown exactly where the note came from and when it was posted, it's pretty shocking to say the least.
You’d understand that a few employees might want to look for other work after receiving a note like that.
Similarly, 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, also 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?"
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!
