Aussie unleashes ‘entitled’ colleague who asked her to trade Easter long weekend because she had no children
- Woman calls ‘entitled’ colleague back
- She was asked if she wanted to trade her Easter leave
- Colleague thought so because she ‘had no children’
A woman has lashed out at a “righteous” mother and colleague who expected her to give up annual leave for the Easter long weekend because she had no children.
The TikTokker, who goes by the name of Lady Quinn and is now a mother, took to social media this week to her old colleague.
She said that when she was 23 and single with no children, she booked time off and bought tickets to visit her parents, who lived six hours away.
But her boss asked her to swap the leave with a colleague at work, the TikTokker named ‘Rebecca’.
She then asked her boss if there had been an emergency where the employee had to trade leave, but there wasn’t.
The TikTokker said that when she was 23 and single with no children, she booked Easter leave and bought tickets to visit her parents who lived six hours away before a colleague asked to swap leave with her because she was not a parent
“I went to talk to her and said ‘what happened (to make you want to trade leave) because I booked tickets and I’m really looking forward to seeing my parents,” the woman said in her TikTok post (stock image)
Her manager told her that Rebecca just wanted to be with her family during Easter break, so the woman said she would discuss it with the colleague at work.
“I went to talk to her and said ‘what happened (to make you want to trade leave) because I’ve booked tickets and I’m really looking forward to seeing my parents,” the TikTokker said.
“And she said ‘well you see, you don’t have kids so you don’t really need the long weekend to spend it with your family'”
And she said, “Well, you see, you don’t have kids, so you don’t really need the long weekend spend it with your family.”
‘Uh b****, what are parents? This is my family.’
She berated her for assuming that since she had no children, she would be able to give up the annual leave “out of the goodness of my heart.”
“F*** off Rebecca, no,” said the woman in the video.
She added that she offered a compromise and said she would work over Christmas so the employee could take time off.
But then she gleefully admitted that she “quitted two months later.”
Reactions to the video called for “entitlement” employees.
“As a mother, I couldn’t imagine telling someone that my family is more important than theirs,” said one mother.
“Lost my last Christmas with my mom to entitlement parent and no spine manager. I left them two months later,” said another.
“So glad my job doesn’t do this,” said a third.
‘Couples without children are also a family! We want to spend time with our partners, friends and pets!’ a fourth wrote.
‘I had a colleague who said to a childless colleague: ‘Why are you free on Mother’s Day? You have no children!”… umm she has a mother!??’ said another.
The video was met with many comments calling out other “entitled” employees (stock image)
