Boss questions employee 

An absurd incident has happened to a Reddit user who had recently been fired. He posted a screenshot of text messages that he exchanged with his former boss. The post has gone viral and is now making rounds on the internet. The fired employee was asked if the work he was assigned was completed or not. Netizens have slammed the boss for his unprofessional work ethic.


The boss messaged, “Good morning, did you create an order for this week or an inventory?”
The Reddit user replied, “I’m confused. Was my position eliminated or not?”
To this, the boss said, “Yes, but you did inventory and prepped an order on Sunday, was wondering where it was if at all.”
The astounded ex-employee replied, “[Boss name], bless your heart. You don’t fire someone and then still contact them to ask questions about the job bc you don’t know.”
The boss sent a thumbs-up emoji and then wrote, “25 years in the kitchen, just thought you would have been professional.”
The Reddit user replied, “In 25 years I’ve never had anyone fire me then expect me to still work.”

I’m still in shock.. from antiwork


Netizens slammed the boss for expecting the employee to work even after being fired.

Reacting to this one user wrote, “Just thought you would’ve been professional” you’ve got to be joking, Some of the shit that people come up with is unreal, to fire someone then ask them for work-related information, fuck that.”


Another one wrote, “This comment gives me that feeling of when I finish an argument and then have an amazing comeback half an hour later.”

“You’re fired! now get back to work! Next payday, hound them about where your check is: ‘I thought you ‘would of’ been professional and not let a little thing like the elimination of my job stop you from paying me.” the third one wrote.
