One of life’s greatest pleasures is being able to complain about a job you hate. If I wasn’t able to tell my close friends and family about the annoying customers and often more annoying coworkers at my customer service jobs, then I don’t know how I would be able to survive.
Even when things weren’t so bad at work, it’s fun to share work stories. When I worked at a dog bakery, a customer told me she owned a dog funeral parlor. I was so taken aback that all I could say was, “I’m sorry” To that, she said, “Well, someone’s got to do it.” Imagine if I had to just keep that story inside of me, forbidden to share it with everyone I know. That is exactly what the boss of Redditor u/throwawayeas989 is trying to do to their restaurant employees: forbid them from saying anything, positive or negative, about the company.
