Michigan Gas Station Employee Leaves Public Note To Boss: ‘Learn To Be On Time’


A gas station employee in Michigan left an angry note for his boss and for the store’s customers to see.

The note has since gone viral, and now the whole world can see it.

When ‘Joe,’ the employee, was done with his shift at a BP station in Grand Rapids, he waited for over an hour Thursday for the manager to show up so he could go home, but she never came, the New York Daily News reported.

Joe got sick of waiting, so he wrote a quick note for his boss, and taped the paper to the front glass door. Before locking up, he posted a “Help Wanted” sign next to the note.

“Hey boss, learn to be on time or at least communicate when you are going to be late. +1 hour with no phone call is unacceptable. As you can see, the doors are locked. I went home. Fire me if you must, but realize I walked out due to YOUR negligence,” the note read.

Speaking with FOX 17 Michigan, the manager, who declined to go on camera, said she was running late because she did not hear her alarm clock go off.

Joe did not try to contact her either, she said.

“I thought it was hilarious,” a customer, Ryan Otthouse, told the Grand Rapid Press. He stopped to get some gas on his way to work and saw that nobody was at the station, but the pump was working.

The note was shared on reddit.com under the title "This is how you quit your sh***y third shift gas station job," and has raked up over 2,800 comments and rants from readers who have experienced the same problems at the job.
