I know some people out there have issues with Hooters as a business and that’s fine, but the people who work there are just trying to make a buck and pay their bills, ya know?
So my point is you shouldn’t give someone a hard time about what they do for a living…
And that brings us to today’s story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page.
Take a look at what happened.
AITA snapping at my roommate for judging me for working at Hooters?
“Idk why this is an argument but I just want an unbiased opinion.
I (21 F) recently got a job at hooters and my roommate Ivy has started making extremely passive-aggressive comments about it. I just started the job two months ago and ever since I started my roommate will not let up.
We are both college students and both work in order to pay rent so I decided that I would try a hand at Hooters because I have heard about how much money you can make, and so far it’s all been true. I know some people have had really bad experiences but I adore all of my coworkers and have a very healthy work environment.
Onto the issue, Ivy will make the rudest comments when I am about to leave or come home. She’ll make “s**t jokes”, say I am making women’s lives harder by enforcing standards and make comments around the idea that I am losing “worth”. Every time I bite back she always gets defensive and says that I don’t know how to take a joke.
This all blew up over the weekend. We invited all of our friends and boyfriends over to our apartment. They all got there at 8 and my shift ended at 10 so I was going to be late no matter what. When I walked in the door Ivy pointed at me and said “This is what I was talking about! The uniform is so demeaning!” and I don’t know if it was the stress of everything but I just snapped.
I told her to shut the f**k up and that if she was going to make her s**tty comments at least do it in private. She got really sulky and said I was proving her point that I can’t take a joke. Most of our friends took my side but I want an unbiased opinion.
Here’s how Reddit users reacted to this.
One person said she’s NTA and that women need to be supporting other women.
And this Reddit user agreed she’s NTA and they have a theory about what’s really going on here…
And this individual talked about their own positive experiences working at Hooters.
Now we want to hear from you.
Let us know what you think in the comments.
Thanks a lot!
