Employee Shuts Down Boss For Using Surveillance To Accuse Him Of Being Lazy

An employee hit back at his boss after they used the company's surveillance cameras to spy on him and accuse him of being lazy.

The unnamed office worker received a text message from his boss telling him that he had been spotted sitting on a stool for the 'majority' of his shift.

During the conversation, which was shared on Reddit, the guy's boss tells him that this kind of behaviour is totally 'unacceptable' and that they would be talking with him about it the next day.

The boss' message read: "I was reviewing the cameras from our shift today and noticed that you were sitting on a stool for the majority of your shift.

"This is completely unacceptable behaviour and we will be discussing it tomorrow before shift."

But not one to take it lying down, the employee then hit back, writing: "I cleared it with [Lead's name].

"I have 2 broken bones in my left foot (doctor documented)."

And that's not all, the man then goes on to blast his boss for criticising his efforts.

He added: "So just to be clear. My impressive performance was overshadowed by the fact that I wasn't uncomfortable enough doing it?"

Again, not appreciating their employee's tone, the boss replied once again with: "I'm really not appreciating your attitude.

"This type of behaviour isn't going to get you anywhere here."

And unsurprisingly, the employee responded in kind, saying that he really didn't care about what his boss thought.

He said: "I'm not concerned with going 'anywhere' there. It's a toxic environment with ignorant people at the helm. I won't be in tomorrow or ever again."

Clearly surprised by the response, the boss then backtracked, urging him not to 'rush into leaving'.

However, his mind was made up, with the now former employee replying: "No thanks. Have a good life."

Earlier this month, a bartender was 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.
