America is beginning to conduct a much-needed conversation about how workers are often mistreated and underpaid. A subcategory of Awful Boss is the Boss Who Puts Workers In Danger and The Boss Who Minimizes Your Feelings, which are bad on their own and even worse together. When a retail worker's boss made a particularly egregious mistake, they quit on the spot, and asked "Am I The A**hole?" whether or not they did the right thing:
I worked at a retail store in the mall. The store is divided into men’s, women’s and children’s clothes. I always worked women’s and on the weekdays I was always the only employee in that entire section.
Yesterday myself and two other employees clocked into ours shifts. My manager Lisa pulled my aside and told me “Your dad's called the store five times asking for your schedule please tell him to stop."
