People Are Sharing Their Awful Bosses Have Said To Them (27 Stories)

Greetings from my job that I love. Truly, I am blessed. I don’t think my boss will ever read this, but if he is reading it I want to say: dang, I’m having yet another great day. Sadly, not everyone can say the same. Not only do some jobs truly suck, but some bosses make those bad jobs worse. Employees are taking to the internet to get their revenge.

Comedian Kevin McCaffrey shared a story about an awful boss on Twitter, and it started a viral movement. Soon, everyone was sharing their own horror stories about the people who pay them money. If you recognize Kevin, that’s because I’ve interviewed him on this very site about his viral videos revealing that he is Mike Pence’s cousin.

Here’s the tweet that started it all:

Bad bosses, horrible bosses, boss horror story, bad jobs, employees get revenge on boss, terrible people, viral twitter thread, funny tweets about boss

The joke set off a flurry of great and horrible stories about bad bosses.

Here are stories about bad bosses who apparently felt the need to say something horrible to their employees:
