A Nigerian man identified as Somto has disclosed how he was fired shortly after turning down his boss’s request to taste his food.
Somto, who is presently employed by another company, described a singular incident from his previous employment and what he feels led to his manager firing him in a post that was shared on the microblogging platform, X.
He said that the event took place on a certain day when his boss, who enjoyed eating food prepared by his employees, began sampling each person’s meal one by one.
But before it got to his turn, he quickly finished his meal so his boss couldn’t taste it. His supervisor was aware of this and gave him a stern look, and a week later, he was dismissed for not being a team player.
“I got fired from a workplace because I didn’t let the manager eat from my lunch. He always went around eating from everyone’s lunch, so one day, I quickly packed up all of my food before he got to me. He gave me a long, angry stare. I was fired the following week.”
