Work is hard enough, but what about when work makes you cry?

I’ve had customers and coworkers make me cry in the past, but when it’s your boss?

That’s when you know it’s bad–and probably time to look for a new gig literally anywhere else.

Here are 12 people’s confessions about crying because of the boss.

1. Not cool, man

Even if no one else does, your boss should have your back.

My boss intentionally picks on me... Feels like he does it more since he made me cry...

But it’s okay if your mask slips now and then.
You’re only human.

6. You know how they say don’t cry over spilled milk?

Don’t scream at employees over messed up milkshakes, either.

Can’t they go to HR about this sort of treatment?
