Didn't see this on here anywhere yet. From the email sent by Christian Norton at Working America:
This year's Bad Boss contest exposed many horrible bosses. More than 700 horrible bosses, actually. Ranging from hilarious to heartbreaking to just plain horrifying, they showed us just how bad bosses can be. Now, after thousands of votes, we've got our three winners.
Bad Barista garnered the most votes to win the People's Choice Grand Prize with the story "Boss with No Heart."
My boss called me several times, threatening to fire me because I was unable to do my job. She continued to keep calling me, specifically harassing me about how my health problems were causing scheduling problems for the business, until my mother picked up my phone in the ER and told her to leave me alone. (She didn't.)
I saw this advertised in a few Open Thread summaries, and although my heart goes out to Bad Barista for her awful experience with a boss that appears to be some kind of mix between a day-walking vampire and Darth Vader, I'm glad to see that she at least got some props through this contest.
The full the Working America page with the story is here.
So congrats to Bad Barista! May you get to spend many healthy years not working for this psycho boss.
The rest of the winners can be found here, per cnorton in the comments - thanks for the addition.
