Social media – in particular, Reddit – has become a hub for people sharing their grievances with the workplace. Recently, an employee shared how his boss started a light-hearted conversation with him moments after firing him from his job. This conversation between the employee and his boss left social media users shocked and prompted many to share similar incidents. “‘Why aren’t you going on holiday???’ Mindblowing Conversation with Boss,” the caption of the post read. 

“Literally being laid off by the owner of the establishment and during the conversation he mentions he’s going to another continent with his partner and children during the summer,” the Reddit user wrote. He added that his boss then asked him where he was going, to which he answered, “Nowhere”.
