GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (CNN) – There have been times in life when you feel like “enough is enough.”
A man in Michigan took that one step further at his job when he left his boss a note, telling her exactly how he felt.
Joe Blumm has worked at the BP in East Town for the past three years and reached his breaking point on Thursday.
He says he asked his manager to be taken off third shift and was still forced to work overnight.
As he was waiting for his manager to relieve him, he couldn’t take it any more when she never showed up.
Blumm said, “I had it. I had enough of that unprofessional atmosphere, having to deal with that tardiness and have it come down on me.”
He posted a note on the door, locked up and went home.
Joe Blumm said, “All of a sudden, you thought you had a snow ball and dropped it at the top of the hill and you look down at the bottom and then there’s an avalanche.”
It was a note meant to be seen by his manager but once the note hit the Internet, it took on a life of its own.
Referring to Reddit.com, Blumm said, “Then I noticed it was in the top five of their hotlist and I kinda started freaking out a little.”
The note said, “Hey boss, learn to be on time or at least communicate when you are going to be late. One hour with no phone call is unacceptable. As you can see, the doors are locked. I went home. Fire me if you must, but realize I walked due to your negligence.”
He added, ‘”I know I struck a chord with a lot of disgruntled, low-paid employees who get the short end of the stick.”
Now, he is on the hunt for a new job.
Blumm said, “Hopefully, with all the publicity that could be a reality. I would love to have a different job, something a little bit higher paying I would hope.”
Blumm’s manager admits she was late but argues that he never called her or anyone else before leaving the store.
Guess the Race? Oh wait he actually had a job Nevermind carry on. Nothing to see here.
Looks like one of those occupy types. He probably prefers to not have a job. Didn't read by the way.
she's an ass, he's an idiot.
he should have just manned up and quit instead of leaving a whiny note.
I'm sure this will kill his career of being a gas station employee...will be hard to find work that pays so well.
He should've taped it to his balls and waited for her to arrive.
he could have hosed down the sidewalks or grabbed a broom or done some other kind of straightening up.
Won't do manager a solid plus emo glasses and ponytail. Yeah, I'd hire him............as a javelin catcher.
It's good to be the boss
I'm sure the broom was inside the locked store, but yeah, that's a good idea.
Might as well get fired in a big way!
My buddy grew up in a small town where the mechanics and gas station attendants fucked watermelons and pumpkins when they had no work to do.
This kid is a mindless dipshit
