A fast-food employee lost their job after they were unable to work while being critically ill.

The Reddit post by the employee, titled "I lost my job of 3 years because of this," showed a text conversation that allegedly took place between them and their boss. The employee stated that they were too unwell to leave the toilet, let alone work a shift. The employee also presented the bottom of a doctor's letter. The manager, on the other hand, asked the employee to either show up or find someone to cover the shift for them. He added that if they were unable to do that, they would be fired, reports God Daily Dot.

The manager made the ridiculous assertion that because they could send text messages, they should be able to work a whole shift or find another worker to cover for them.
