An Unpleasant Birthday Surprise
Birthdays aren’t usually a reason to ask for a day off at the office, but if you ask long beforehand, your request might be approved. That’s what happened when this person wanted to visit their estranged father during their 27th birthday party. However, things didn’t exactly end up the way they had planned.
In the middle of a nice lunch with their father and his family, an assistant manager gave the OP a jingle and informed them that they were laid off. Seriously, the manager didn’t have the kahunas to give them a call? Trust us, the OP is better off not working for such an inconsiderate jerk.
