In a viral TikTok, a worker criticized her manager for being late to work and making her wait over 40 minutes outside. Viewers in the comments section debated how they would have handled the situation.
In the viral video, which has over 108,300 views and was posted in July, a TikTok user (@lavvish.rayy) films herself standing outside of a location of pizza chain Little Caesars in her uniform, with what appears to be half of a smoked Backwoods cigar in her hand.
“The voices in my head telling me to quit and never come back after sitting outside my job for 40min + because my manager didnt wake up on time to open the store,” the TikToker captioned the video. “Its giving we need a new manager.”
