Today, I was telling my friends that I'd gotten a paid position to cover a worker's bereavement leave for the next three weeks. They then called me an insensitive bitch for 'profiting from someone else's misfortune'. FML

Also tell them that if you didn't cover the position, the boss would have a lot of work not being done (losing money) and the coworker would come back after a hard & emotional time to mounds of work and paperwork! Your friends sound stupid op. Try and explain it to them nice and slowly adding that if you didn't do it someone else would have to & that it's actually helping the coworker out. If they still don't get it, just ignore them because they obviously can't comprehend the situation.

I apologize on your friends' behalf for being so stupid. How could they all come to the same conclusion? I'm surprised no one backed you up. Depending on how many friends were there I guess.

You have two options:

"Sorry boss, but my friends say I'm an insensitive bitch for taking this three week job offer. Therefore, because I don't have a spine, I'll quit instead."


"My dear judgmental friends, kindly go back to your burger flipping jobs and mind yourself."

I liked your comment because it implied the loss of these idiot friends, by OP dumping their ignorant asses. You came off pretty sharp there, to me, buddy.
