Bed Bath & Beyond Employee Quits On A Price Tag

Bed Bath and Beyond price tag

A Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. employee recently quit his job in a scathing but subtle way -- until a customer stumbled on the evidence, took a photo, uploaded it to the Internet, and sent it straight into the annals of viral and glorious job-quitting stunts.

A user of the anonymous online forum Reddit known only as "mastranios" peered at a tag for a Nuwave Pro Infrared Oven (a cooker that can broil, roast, bake, barbecue, steam and dehydrate food, all for $119.99). But the price tag had been fiendishly adulterated, by none other than the person responsible for writing that Bed, Bath & Beyond tag, whose job satisfaction was clearly at a low (via Consumerist).

"THIS IS FOR FAT F***S" it states, along with the explanation "MY BOSS IS A P***K" and the announcement, "IM QUITTING TODAY." Sandwiched between these colorful insights into the mind of the tag-writer, sit a few key facts about the product, like its dimensions, and that it comes with an extender-ring kit.

(Other recent creative resignations include those of the news anchors who quit on air and the hotel worker who walked out with the accompaniment of a marching band.)

"Saw this at Bed Bath and Beyond," wrote mastranios when he uploaded the photo. The conversation then quickly devolved into whether or not Bed Bath & Beyond was a terrible place to work and whether or not the Nuwave Pro Infrared Oven was awesome to cook meat.

Verdict: The Nuwave Pro Infrared Oven is good for making chicken strips, Tater Tots, fries, whole turkeys, and ham. Bed Bath & Beyond, however, has several disgruntled employees out there, and this mischief-maker is officially their "hero."

Unions were OK in thier time but most, in my opinion, are corrupt and only drive inflation by demanding higher wages for thier members. While higher wages would be nice, the cost is passed on to the consumer. US. Which in turn causes the unions to demand higher wages and on and on and on. It's a vicious cycle that will not end until we the people become less greedy, living within our means and not buying every new thing that comes along.

Are you implying that all union workers are idiots? Or are you saying that out of jealousy because we union workers have better pay and benefits than non-union idiots?

Yep, union people are idiots. Remember that unions brought you the 40 hour workweek, weekends, fair wages, end to slave labor, end to child labor, safer working conditions. All because of unions,. Yep, we're idiots all right.

I'd let every employer know what type of person he/she is.

There are some people in this world which you just know that Satan doesn't even want them when they die. I've worked for a few of them and I'm related to another one. They are the most unhappy people and no matter what you do, they find fault in everything.

So Satan is down in hell telling God please make them live as long as possible because he doesn't even want their sorry, miserable complaining arses down in hell telling him how wrong he's doing everything and what an absolutely looser he is too.
