Today, my boss threatened to fire me for showing up at work early. His reasoning is that it looks bad when his workers show up before dawn and work later than he does. He assigned me these hours specifically to accommodate one of our clients. FML

OP here. I normally get to work before dawn; so he was just being a dick. I work as a home care provider for a little old lady with severe mental issues, who's husband/primary care provider works early mornings, as he owns his own lawn care business and where I live the heat is oppressive by noon. However, today he had to work late to make up contracted appointments he'd missed last week because of equipment problems; and for once cleared the hour change via the office. Hence, jackhole supervisor acting a fool. As for finding a new job; I plan to finish this one then move on; her husband is retiring in less then a year and she is extremely picky about care givers. I'm one of two that has lasted more then three weeks; and I refuse to put her and her family through finding a new provider like that.

You sound like a very good person. Don't let anyone take advantage of you because of how kind you are, your boss or otherwise

Are people dying because he misspelled or used poor grammar? It's the Internet not a biblical scripture.

God forbid people overlook mistakes and try to read the comment. I had no problem reading it and I easily understood what #1 was trying to say. No need to be grammar or spelling douche bags about it.

Everyone knows that if you misspell something on the internet, you go to internet hell.

#1, I'm sure this workaholic wants to be subordinate to a slack-ass who can't be bothered to capitalize his I's.

Maybe he's too busy to capitalize his 'i's.. Buuut, on the other hand, he's on FML

I'll have you know sir apes are very smart.

#26, I just want to say correcting other people's spelling and/or grammar is actually a specific type of OCD called Grammar Pedantry Syndrome.

Wow. Your boss sucks. If there's someone above him, I'd complain to his boss. Good luck. FYL.

Let's hope that OP's boss's boss isn't as easily threatened.

Don't worry, you can't please everyone. My boss is a jerk too.

That's when you gotta keep trying to do your best and roll with the punches. Hopefully, if karma is truly our friend, you will be rewarded for it. Or, you know, hopefully your boss's BS bites him in the ass.

Seems like he just wants you to be worse than him

He sounds like a bipolar jackass.

I think the phrase you're looking for is "dumb ass".

Why is it that this website is full of idiot bosses?

probably because this website is called "**** My Life" and not "My Life is Awesome".

At least you have an excuse to show up late to work

I'll bet someone higher up happened to notice and mention something... Boss is too proud to let you know it...
