Workers share weirdest reasons they got told off – including asking for holiday

A Brit woman has gone incredibly viral on Twitter after she decided to share the "weirdest thing I got in trouble at work for'".

Katie Harrington has pulled in hundreds of thousands of interactions on her social media page after sharing a bizarre reason for getting shouted at in her workplace.

Her tweet, which has received over 100,000 likes and counting, explains what her managers weirdly described as a "disrespectful" email, Galway Beo reports.

The now famous post sparked a frenzy of employees gossiping about their short-tempered old employers.

The tweet read: "What’s the weirdest thing you ever got in trouble at work for? I was accused of being disrespectful because the six people I CCd on an email weren’t listed in order of seniority."

And the Galwegian Dunmore native wasn't alone in her scenario.

One person replied sharing their horrible boss story, they said: "Telling a customer what time we closed at.

"The company owner felt this was classified information that could be used for a robbery. I wish I was making this up."

Another added: "As a young postman in the 1970s, I got reprimanded and sent home at 3.30 in the morning for wearing trainers.

"I had to change into proper boots. The supervisor who sent me home was my dad, who had taken me to work in his car. I had to walk home and back."

A third person wrote: "Solving a big problem at work, but I didn’t tell my boss how I came up with the solution.

"When he presented to his bosses, he felt embarrassed he could not answer how HE came up with the idea and HAD TO give up the credit."

Another Twitter user responded with their own work "mistake": "Asking for a day off."
