Boss Asks If He Was Wrong To Deny Time Off For Employee’s $2500 Vacation That He Knew About Before Hiring Her After It Backfires Immediately

Employers often forget that it’s not only the hiree who needs the job, but THEY need an employee too. It’s a bilateral negotiation: what the employer has to offer and expects from a new hiree, and the same goes for the employee, how they can contribute to the company and what they can expect in return for their job. It’s only fair when both parties are satisfied with the deal. But that’s not how it works in the real world, isn’t it?

This is precisely the story recently posted on Reddit. The woman, Lacey, agreed to start a new position within a large company. Yet, she made it clear that she had a non-refundable $2500 vacation planned. Her manager, the Original Poster (OP) of the story, told her that he “did the schedule and would try to accommodate her.”

Well, he didn’t exactly do that. “I couldn’t accommodate her at all,” the OP, who goes by the handle Artistic-Comment20, wrote in the post. The manager informed Lacey through e-mail that she was expected to work the days she requested time off. He was then surprised to see the new employee packed all her things. The woman quit. The OP was then called into the boss’ office for an explanation. His wife also called him an idiot for doing so.

The man turned to the AITA community to ask whether he was the A-hole in the situation? According to him, new employees should expect to be “last for vacation.” 5K comments later, the AITA community delivered their verdict. And it was unanimous.

Redditors were quick to reproach the OP and even claimed he shouldn’t be in a managerial job. Here’s what they had to say

This Man Tells His Fiancée That His House Is In His Teen Daughter’s Name As An Inheritance From Her Late Mother, The Woman Throws A Tantrum

In today’s age, the man doesn’t own the woman anything. So does the woman. Although the patriarchal society is still thriving and men are expected to bring their wives to their property, times have changed. Some are very lucky to invite their special someone to live together in their own place, but that is no longer the case for many. With house prices increasing every year, it’s tough, some might think even nearly impossible, to become a homeowner. And unfortunately, the amount needed to afford a house isn’t the sum of money you can save by giving up Netflix.

Well, this post isn’t exactly about inflation or homeownership being millennials’ distant dream. Instead, it’s about the woman who felt entitled to live in the house that lawfully belonged to her fiancé’s daughter. The story goes that the Original Poster got engaged to a widower whose late wife left their home to their 15-year-old daughter. The OP was appalled to find out that the house they planned to move into together was not rightfully his and threw a tantrum.

The OP turned to Reddit’s AITA community to describe her situation and help her realize if she was “AITA for calling [her] fiancé a jerk?” Other than being named the A-hole, OP also received the title of a gold-digger.
