We’ve seen a lot of incompetent bosses during our time browsing the internet… but have you ever heard of a boss who was so fiercely incompetent that they weren’t even capable of firing a worker who was doing everything in their power to themselves fired?
The situation this worker found themselves in sounds maddening and—yet, at least you know, somewhere, deep down, this boss knew that they were totally reliant on their reluctant babysitter to maintain the homeostasis of their business… That alone gets you the kind of job security you can’t find growing on trees. Still, there’s no sense in working any job where you dread turning up every day, which is why this worker was determined to get fired.
Try as they might, they still couldn’t get their boss to pull the trigger and put them out of their misery. After making an initial post about their situation, the worker returned to share an update in which they detailed the behaviors they had adopted in a brazen attempt to quiet quit their job. Read on to see the original post that they shared, followed by the update and reactions.
This entire story just screams Office Space in ways that we can’t even fully wrap our heads around—and we’re here for it.
