Getting a list of rules on your first day of work? Sounds normal, but this woman’s father is totally fuming about it. What is his beef?
To begin with, when his teenage daughter got her first job and showed up on the first day of work, her father was very proud of her. However, the teenager soon returned home with a list of rules from her harsh employer that left her father speechless.
It was the boss’s list of eleven rules, which he wanted the teen to be able to “understand” before the kid developed entitlement or laziness. The teen, who lives with him in New Zealand, was taught such a challenging life lesson on her first day of work, and the father was completely taken aback by this.
The father then decided media to share his displeasure at the boss for delivering the “disgusting” letter to his young daughter on her first day of work. He grabbed a photograph of the regulations and take it out on social but he waited until after his daughter had quit the horrible position before posting about the regulations.
He wrote: “Kid recently left her job at a local retailer (which employs mostly 16-year-olds to play well under min wage). This is a letter she received from the boss when she arrived on her first day on that job.”
The letter is a meme that was originally circulated on the internet in 2000 by Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, according to some people, a meme that has been going around the internet for a while. But as we move forward in time, some social media users are horrified that a boss would give this to young employees as they start their first day on the job.
Rule 1: Life is not fair – get used to it!
Rule 2: The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.
Rule 3: You will not make $60,000.00 a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice-president with a car and a phone until you earn both.
Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
Rule 5: Flipping burgers is beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: They called it opportunity.
Rule 6: If you mess up, it is not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes; learn from them.
Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying bills, cleaning your clothes, and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rainforest from the parasites of your parents’ generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
Rule 8: Your school may have done away with the winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades, and they will give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to anything in real life.
Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off, and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.
Rule 10: Television is not real life. In real life, people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.
