GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A BP gas station worker in Michigan, fed up with his boss not showing up on time, taped a note to the door, locked up and went home. Joe Blumm made the decision to leave after his boss was more than an hour late for her shift.
“Hey boss, learn to be on time or at least communicate when you are going to be late,” the note read. “+1 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 out due to YOUR negligence.”
In an interview with WXMI television, Blumm said: “I had it. I had enough of that unprofessional atmosphere and having to deal with that tardiness and have it come down on me. I know that I’ve struck a chord with a lot of disgruntled, low-paid employees who get the short end of the stick.”
Blumm was fired. The manager told FOX 17 television she was running late because she didn’t hear her alarm clock go off.
