    18 employees share when they decided to switch jobs.

    In an ideal world, we would spend our days lounging on the beach, indulging in trendy cocktails, and plucking juicy grapes straight from the vine. Alas, our reality often involves dealing with undesirable colleagues and unpleasant workplaces.

    Unfortunately, I wasn’t present during the incident – a young female colleague was instead. From what I’ve heard, a regular patron stumbled out of his seat before collapsing. Tragically, when the ambulance arrived, he was already deceased. My heart went out to the 22-year-old who had just witnessed this traumatizing event. As she was inconsolable, I was called in to take over running the bar. However, the manager pulled me aside and bluntly stated, “I don’t think she’s cut out for this job. Once she composes herself, ask her to turn in her keys, and I’ll provide a glowing reference.”

    “Picture this: a chic family vacay in Europe, with a price tag of a cool $15k. Sounds like the stuff of fashion-forward jet-set dreams, right? Well, unfortunately, my plans took a turn when I experienced a serious medical emergency. We’re talking a stroke coupled with a potentially lethal infection. Yikes. Needless to say, I had no choice but to cancel the trip. But instead of sending sympathy my way, my boss had the audacity to question my commitment to the job. ‘So, you’ll be coming in this week since you canceled your vacation…?’ Um, excuse me? Can we focus on the fact that I almost died here? Classless.”

    I used to work at your typical office, complete with drab cubicles, ergonomic chairs, and trinkets like solar-powered dancing daisies strewn across desks. One day, a coworker who was only 35 years old had a heart issue, and the ambulance rushed him to the hospital. He was back at work the next day, completely outraged. Why? Well, while he was in the ER, the HR rep phoned him to ask if he could make it back in time for the CEO’s meeting. This situation taught me one thing: your bosses will never truly care about you. For support, turn to your trusted friends.

    Once, outside the retail store where I worked, a gentleman was passed out cold. To revive him, I teamed up with a pal and attempted to rouse him with water. Sadly, he appeared not to be breathing at all. In a moment of urgency, I dialed 911 whilst the proprietor of the establishment emerged. Shockingly, they stated, “It won’t be good for business if an ambulance arrives outside.” I instantly replied with stylish assertiveness, “It’s far better than having a lifeless body sprawled outside, don’t you agree?”

    As a private nurse catering to millionaires, I’ve had my fair share of encounters with their lavish lifestyles. However, there were times when these elites went on vacation without informing our payroll company, leaving us without paychecks. Rather than acknowledging their mistake, they blamed our financial habits. Let’s be clear, we were certified nursing assistants, not financial advisors.

    We welcomed a fresh addition to the team, but unfortunately, reports of sexual harassment, racist behavior, insulting others, spreading false rumors, and bullying soon followed. Shockingly, despite these complaints, our newly hired team member was swiftly promoted to a leadership position thanks to their connection with the project manager. In response, 90% of the team including myself chose to resign immediately.
    During a time at the manufacturing plant, a gentleman unfortunately fainted on the assembly line. Instead of stopping production, the supervisor instructed us to swiftly move him out of the way in order to continue with the task at hand.

    Meet Anna – a dedicated and hardworking employee who poured her heart into her department for two decades. She was the ultimate team player, always eager to pick up extra shifts and go above and beyond. No task was too small for her, and she never uttered a word of complaint. Anna spoke often of how her colleagues were like family to her. However, tragedy struck when her beloved brother unexpectedly passed away at the age of 50. Devastated, she took two weeks off to grieve. Yet, when Anna returned to work, she received no condolences from management – no flowers, no card, nothing. These were the same individuals she had laughed and shared happy hours with for years. How could they be so cold and callous? It’s moments like these that make us question what it means to be part of a “family.”

    During my time working at a chic bakery and cafe, a personal tragedy struck as my grandfather’s health declined. With an early shift scheduled the day after his passing, my family and I found ourselves gathered in the hospital as he passed away around 3 p.m. Though we stayed with him for another hour, the emotional toll left me sleep-deprived and saddened. Understandingly, I texted my boss to let them know I was in no condition to work. Despite this, I still had to report for duty.
