Aussie unleashes on ‘entitled’ co-worker who asked her to swap Easter long weekend leave because she didn’t have children
- Woman recalls ‘entitled’ work colleague
- She was asked if she would switch her Easter leave
- Colleague assumed she would because she ‘didn’t have kids’
A woman has lashed out at an ‘entitled’ mum and work colleague who expected her to give up annual leave for the Easter long weekend because she didn’t have kids.
The TikTokker, who goes by the name Lady Quinn and is now a mum, took to social media this week calling out her old work colleague.
She said that when she was 23 and single with no children, she booked leave and bought tickets to visit her parents who lived six hours away.
But her boss asked her to switch the leave with a work colleague the TikTokker named ‘Rebecca’.
She then asked her boss if there had been an emergency with the employee needing to swap leave – but there wasn’t.
The TikTokker said when she was 23 and single with no children, she booked leave at Easter and bought tickets to visit her parents who lived six hours away before a work colleague asked to swap leave with her because she wasn’t a parent
‘I went and had a chat with her and said “what’s happened [to make you want to swap leave] because I’ve got tickets booked and I’m really looking forward to seeing my parents,”‘ the woman said in her TikTok post (stock image)
Her manager told her Rebecca just wanted to be with her family for the Easter break so the woman said she would discuss it with the work colleague.
‘I went and had a chat with her and said “what’s happened [to make you want to swap leave] because I’ve got tickets booked and I’m really looking forward to seeing my parents,”‘ the TikTokker said.
‘And she said “well you see, you don’t have kids so you don’t really need the long weekend to spend it with your family”‘
‘And she said “well you see, you don’t have kids so you don’t really need the long weekend to spend it with your family.”
‘Uh b****, what are parents? That’s my family.’
She slammed her for assuming that because she didn’t have children, she would be fine to give up the annual leave ‘out of the goodness of my heart’.
‘F*** off Rebecca, no,’ the woman in the video said.
She added she offered a compromise and said she would work Christmas so the employee could take leave then.
But she then gleefully admitted she ‘quit two months later’.
Responses to the video called out ‘entitled’ workers.
‘I couldn’t imagine as a mum, telling someone my family was more important than theirs,’ one mother said.
‘Lost my last Christmas with my mom because of entitled parent and no backbone manager. I left them two months later,’ another said.
‘So glad my work doesn’t do this,’ said a third.
‘Married couples without children are a family too! We want to spend time with our partners, friends and pets!’ a fourth wrote.
‘I had a co-worker say to a childless co-worker “Why are you off on Mothers Day? You don’t have kids!”… umm she has a Mom!??’ one more said.
The video was responded to with many comments calling out other ‘entitled’ workers (stock image)
