Power corrupts people, whether it's running a Fortune 500 company, or being the manager at a Burger King. This is why most of us have worked for, or know someone who currently works for, a terrible, creepy, or egomaniacal boss.
In a popular Reddit thread, someone asked: "What's the most horrifying thing a boss has ever said to you?"
1.) From hock87:
Me after I told my boss I was thinking about quitting.
Boss “You’re married right?”
… me, “uh yeah.”
Boss “You wouldn’t leave your wife when things get tough, would you?”
Me, “no, I love my wife and I made a lifelong commitment to her, this job on the other hand allows me to provide for my family and take care of them, I need my wife, I don’t need this job.”
Glad I quit.
