Today, I tried to write a bad review for the fast-food place at which I work part-time. My username made me anonymous, but I forgot to change my profile picture. Now my manager and coworkers won't even speak to me. FML

I'm going to play devil's advocate here. Yes, it was a bit low of the OP to go behind his coworker's backs and write a review, but at the same time it could also be a good thing. Whistleblowers bring attention to dangerous business practices to the public, and/or shed some light on what actually happens behind the scenes.

I'll tell you right now, most restaurants, and I'm giving a few the benefit of the doubt, have awful practices.

Somethings you wont mind, like sticking a finger in the food, sucking it off, adding a bit of seasoning and repeat with the same finger.

Somethings such as not washing their hands at all. Even after using the toilet. Others such as a mouldy/rusty kitchen.

At my fast food job it's not uncommon to work 7 hours without a break, twice I've worked 8 without a break and a coworker worked 9. Also we have high schoolers that sometimes work until after 11 or midnight on school nights.

There is no shortage of part-time, entry level positions available. Most of which do not pay the bills which indicates the op is not independent and doesn't necessarily need the job.

OP, staying in a job that makes you miserable may as well be called masochism. You clearly sound like you don't like the place and don't enjoy working there, which is pretty much an alarm bell for 'time to get a new job'.

Switch jobs, and you will likely find yourself happier. You don't deserve to be miserable because of a bad workplace.
