FML - The follow-up

Today, I broke into tears at work after being told my aunt had a stroke. My boss told me to "suck it up, no one is that close to their aunt." My aunt adopted me when my mother passed away. FML

Katthebamf Say more :
Thanks for all the supportive comments. When I explained to him the situation he apologised and sent me home. I reported him to my senior manager and he has since received a warning for inappropriate behavior. My aunt is doing really well now, they caught it early and they say she will make a 100% recovery. She's talking again as well, but she will have to stay in hospital for a while for monitoring. Reading all the comments made me feel a lot better as well, thank you!

It's terrible that OP's boss has the audacity to make a judgement about her relationship with her aunt. Her boss is not part of her family and he has absolutely no right to make such a statement.

Her boss is an asshole indeed! My Aunt recently passed, and she was more than just an aunt, she was my best friend. No one family is the same, and he crossed a line assuming that they are. Thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery OP!!

45, the FML does not state that a friend told OP, its was most likely a family member. secondly, where does it ever say that OP was mocking another friend about income? It doesn't. i have no idea how you pulled those crazy assumptions out of your ass.

It doesn't matter if its someone's great great aunt, you never say something like that in that situation. Your boss has horrible social skills. Also I'm very close to my aunt, I don't know what I would do if something like that happened to her.

Well your boss is a prick. I'm really close to all my aunts and my niece is one of my best friends. I helped look after her from the day she was born because my sister and her ex had to work complicated hours. I hope your aunt has a speedy recovery, OP. best wishes.

What. The. Fuck? What the hell is his problem? How dare he tell you what you should or shouldn't do in her absence, you should have been like, "Well she did raise me." that would shut his ass up
