A frustrated woman took to Reddit to ask for opinions after she had to block her boss because he kept texting and calling during her vacation. This is her full story.
She’s Building Her Life
OP is a 26-year-old woman who works as a security guard in a department store. She is also in a long-distance relationship with her 29-year-old boyfriend.
Time to Celebrate
After a long two months apart, OP’s boyfriend was finally able to come visit her recently.
To celebrate, she asked for five days off from her job. That request was approved.
Her Boss Begged Her to Stay
On the night her boyfriend arrived, OP clocked out and was headed to the airport to pick him up.
That’s when her new boss approached her and basically begged her to stay on for an extra shift because a co-worker called in sick.
She Couldn’t Stick Around
OP said she couldn’t stay because she was picking up her boyfriend.
Her boss told her she wasn’t a very good team player and suggested that her BF could take an Uber from the airport.
She Didn’t Want to Strand Him
Besides the fact that her boyfriend didn’t have a key to her apartment, OP didn’t want to make him feel unwelcome by not picking him up.
And she had earned her time off, anyway.
He Started Up Again
OP headed out to the parking lot and got in her car, and that’s when her boss started texting her.
He Had Boundary Issues
The new boss had only been on the job for two weeks, and he seemed to want to lean on all his employees, asking them how to do everything.
And he had also asked OP out on a date during those two weeks. She politely declined.
She Had to Pull Over
So it wasn’t too surprising to OP that the boss was being pushy about wanting her to stay for an extra shift, but he went overboard.
She eventually pulled over to turn off her phone because the notifications were so annoying.
He Blew up Her Phone
Then, when she got to the airport, OP had to turn her phone back on so she could connect with her boyfriend.
When she did, there were at least 15 text messages from her boss, scolding her for not working extra hours.
So She Blocked Him
At that point, OP felt like she didn’t have any choice, so she blocked her boss’s number.
But He Wouldn’t Stop
OP and her boyfriend had a wonderful week together, but her boss continued to email her throughout the entire time.
He was asking her questions about how to do the job, many of which she didn’t know the answer to.
She Just Ignored Him
Despite the boss’s constant nagging, though, OP resisted the urge to answer him or get wrapped up in any work drama while she was on a rare vacation.
When she came back to work the next week, though, OP’s boss pulled her into his office and told her how unprofessional she was for not answering his emails.
It Had Never Happened to Her Before
OP told her boss that she had been on vacation and that he should have asked her coworkers for help.
But he couldn’t be reasoned with and wrote up OP, the first time she was disciplined during her 6 years on the job!
What Did She Miss?
Initially, OP came to Reddit wondering if she had missed some cue or somehow done something wrong by not answering her boss during her vacation.
She Reported Him
After seeing what Redditors had to say, though, OP eventually turned her boss in to HR for harassing her.
She included screenshots of all the emails and texts he had sent her during her vacation.
Three Times the Happiness
In a final update, OP said that she left her job because she didn’t want to be around the negativity. But there were three flavors of happy ending, here! She got a new job, she moved in with her boyfriend, and her bad boss got fired.
