I left my last job because I have spinal damage and was told I could sit when things weren’t going on. New manager came in and didn’t like it, complained and I was told I had to stay by him at all times. So I did. But he didn’t like it because he was a wee little man and I’m quite a bit taller than him so he told me I should sit where I had been sitting again. Gave me a laugh but I still left the job because we didn’t need the money and I didn’t want to work for a petty asshole.

Science further confirming that human beings are naturally terrible.
