A TikToker has gone viral for sharing a video about her “toxic manager” who didn’t seem to care about the well-being of their employees.
We’ve all had bosses who seem to be either robots or completely lack empathy. We’re not machines, we have bad days, and we have feelings.
TikToker Simi (@simiibrar) illustrated just how frustrating it was to have one of those bosses.
“You’re right this job isn’t for me, byeeee I’m so relieved I don’t have to deal with this person anymore,” she captioned the video, which was viewed nearly 170,000 times.
Simi begins the video sitting in an office chair and pointing to text overlay reading: “Things my toxic manager used to say to me when I was burnt out at work.”
And wow, what craptastic cliches!
“I guess some people are just too sensitive.”
“Well that’s part of the job, I am even doing it too.”
“Maybe you need to think about if this job is for you.”
In the comments section, folks shared their own experiences with managers like this and also provided some helpful advice on how to cope.
“Omg my boss told me I was too sensitive and yes my workplace is toxic,” one wrote.
“Yup when I left I was told ‘some people just aren’t cut out for this job’ I loved that job, just hated the people,” another said.
