Guy Ran Away on First Day of Work & Told His Salty Story Online

Well, first of all, this is from a thread in Hardwarezone forums, so we can’t be certain whether it’s true or not, but let’s face it: we all have encountered such worker before, haven’t we? If you haven’t, it’s just a matter of time.

So, someone decided to post his story in the forum because he was just too damn angry at how he was treated during his first day of work. Here’s the unedited version:

Jobless for 2 months, decided to try work part time first at Bak Kut Teh stall. They pay $5.50 per hour, but bao jiak.

Limpei totally buey lun, heng the place at Kovan near my house, I forfeit that few hours of morning work, on the bus home riao. FML.

If you atas until cannot understand Singlish, here’s the edited version for you.

I’ve been jobless for two months, so I decided to work part-time in a Bak Kut Teh stall that pays $5.50 per hour which excludes meals.

Initially, when I called the person-in-charge, he painted a rosy job scope: there’s no need to wash or clear the plates; the only responsibility was to cook. Meals are also provided, and I can have anything I want. However, when I went there to work today (working hours from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), the Chinese worker treated me like a slave, asking me to peel garlic and cut youtiao. So, I told her the boss told me that my job was only to cook. However, the Chinese worker said that as I was paid hourly, I should help out in everything.

At 11:45 a.m., as I went for my lunch break, I took some soup and long ribs from the stall. The Chinese worker scolded me again, saying that I had taken the expensive parts and that I was “daring”. She then generalized that youngsters nowadays all couldn’t take hardship.

I was so angry that I decided to just take the bus home during my lunch break, and forfeit my morning work’s pay. Thank God the place is near my house in Kovan. FML.

Firstly, in the thread, the threadstarter did indicate that it’s a Bak Kut Teh stall near Kovan market, so it could be real. Nevertheless, the replies then started coming in.

This guy then sums it all up.
