FML - The follow-up

Today, the only reason I work 12-hour shifts and close at midnight every Saturday is because my boss doesn't like the fact that I have a boyfriend. FML

He owns the business or I would have already!! I know this because I only started closing this late after he found out I have a boyfriend.

It's definitely unreasonable and creepy actually that OP's boss is jealous enough to do this. Doesn't sound safe to me but maybe I'm over analyzing and OP's boss is just being stupid.

Creepy yes, but more apparent that her boss either has the hots for her (which is sick) or has some conservative delusional mentality where he sees her as his daughter and wishes that she remain single and focused. The latter of which I doubt.

Not likely. Many jobs that have 12 hour shifts don't give OT for that shift. Their OT comes from any hours worked past 40 hours in a week. So he can work her 12 hours on Saturday nights and not pay her OT as long as she only works 28 hours the rest of the week.

Trying to see the brighter side-- If OP works 12 hour shifts then most likely they only work 3 out of the 7 days to get 36/40 hours per week(unless they're allowed some mad overtime?) Personally I'd rather have more days off to do what I want, include seeing my BF. Hopefully they don't work opposite schedules.

She didn't assume Op's boss was a male, she asked. Hence the questions marks. And let's be honest, in every FML we assume at least a little. For instance right now we're all assuming that the Op is correct in thinking their boss gives them more hours and closing times because Op has a boyfriend. When in reality, it could just be that the boss likes and trusts Op more than their other employees and trusts that everything will be extremely clean and in perfect shape when Op closes.

Plus, after googling, the assumed percentage of LGBT people are between 1.2%-5.6% of the adult population in the U.S. So even if assumed that Op is a girl, the chances of that being correct are over 50-50%. We all assume at least a bit of an FML story.
