It seems that some bosses simply do not know how to correctly treat their employees. Every boss should understand how to accept everyone and not put people on the spot for their gender, race, or preferences.
She Works in a Hospital
Yet, in this scenario, it seems that this employee’s boss isn’t aware of how to keep their mouth closed and opinions to themselves. Although they are trying to be kind, they are simply rude and offensive with their opinion.
TikToker Elsye @elsyehoneyy shares this story about her strange boss and the racist attitude they have to highlight how bosses shouldn’t treat their employees.
Elsye works in a hospital and they admit it is different from working anywhere else. People that have worked in a hospital wil understand this comment.
However, people that have never worked in the healthcare industry will not understand.
The Industry Is Very Diverse
The hospital industry is stated to be very “diverse” as every employee has to deal with many different people including clients and co-workers.
Elsye goes on to share the story about her boss that has always been a bit of a “witch”. They even admit the boss looks like that.
The personality matches the appearance, making the boss even more strange and dismissive. They state that the boss could do with having “an iron to her face”.
One day, the boss calls Elsye on the office phone and asks if they would like a magazine. Elsye doesn’t often read magazines and finds this gesture strange.
She Didn’t Want the Magazine
The boss persists in giving Elsye the magazine. They continue to say no thank you as the magazine isn’t something they wish to read while working, even while on a break.
Elsye continues to tell the boss they are “sure” they do not want the magazine.
After some debate about why Elsye doesn’t want the magazine and why the boss wants to give it to them, the boss admits why she thought Elsye would want to read the magazine and consume its contents.
Elsye even asks the boss why they do not put the magazine in the clinic waiting room for other staff members or clients to read.
No One Would Want to Read It Anyway
After this suggestion, the truth comes out. The boss admits that the magazine is not the kind of magazine anyone would wish to read.
Hence, Elsye says they do not wish to read it either if nobody else would want to consume its contents.
Again, Elsye says “no thank you” to the offer of the magazine.
This is the final time the boss asks as she says to Elsye, “Well, it has a cute black girl on the front”, suggesting Elsye would only want to read the magazine as Elsye is black too.
She Made a Racist Comment
Without realizing this is a racist comment, the boss makes no further comment.
It seems the boss thinks it is fine to make such suggestions and make racist remarks. Elsye questions why nobody else would want to read the magazine just because of who is on the front cover.
All Elsye can do to this comment is roll their eyes and be shocked. Instead of arguing with the boss and telling her she is wrong for what she said, Elsye stays calm and remains the better person.
If it were down to the rest of society, many people would likely fight back and share their opinion on this racist comment.
She Took to TikTok
Maybe Elsye’s boss is always making unpopular comments and rude remarks that they are used to it. However, this shouldn’t be the case. Anyone has the right to stand up for themselves.
Maybe Elsye came to TikTok to let off steam and not use this against the boss, as it could lose Elsye the job after making an argument.
etting off steam to TikTok allows Elsye to seek the right support and opinions. From the comments, it is clear to see that other people admit this opinion is wrong and uncalled for.
In the future, hopefully, the boss sees this video and apologizes for making such rude remarks to Elsye.
How would you react if your boss make rude remarks? Would you stay so calm or make a formal complaint?
