Today, my boss threatened to fire me if I didn't stop looking at my phone while working. I work in the back room, and there is no clock in there. I look at my phone to check the time. That way I know how long I have left in that hellhole. FML

#26 - Nah, just "way to be practical." When you're regularly in a situation where you want to know the time but can't take out your phone -- whether that's work, class, skydiving, or whatever -- you need a different solution. Like a watch.

If he's going to be that big of an asshole about it, probably the best option I can think of is to invest in a watch. You did nothing wrong but it might be the best idea for your sake

Well they said they only checked the time, its easy when your checking your phone for the time to sneak read and respond to a text and thats what the problem is!


Not sure why people are down voting #27. She is exactly right and the world would be a much better place if more people thought like that. Instead, people are lazy and sit on their fat asses while collecting welfare because they're "struggling in between jobs"

#37 that is an ignorant and "hartlesss" thing to say. Although there are people who are lazy and rely on welfare, most would rather be independent and self-reliant. Also, it's not possible to feed a family on minimum wage if that's the only job you can find. There are plenty of welfare recipients who are hard workers, so don't state nasty assumptions about something you've probably never experienced.


#50 you're right, I've never experienced welfare. However, I was in the army surviving on less than minimum wage while lazy assholes collected a larger paycheck than me for doing nothing at all. But I guess I'm the bad guy for believing hard work actually means something. Also, don't turn my name into a fucking pun.

Sometimes finding a job takes more luck than hard work, especially if you're living in an area where jobs are scarce, Danielfartless

Not everyone can up sticks and go, moving takes funds, certainty you'll get a job in your new location where noone knows you to recommend you, uprooting anyone who is dependant on you etc etc.

You could pull a flavor-flav and get a golden wall clock as the pendant on your gold chain. This should annoy your boss enough to let you look at your phone whenever you like.
