Happy New Year… or not so much to everyone.

One woman shared calling in 2023 as she was fired from her job as a waitress after standing up to her manager, who tried to assign her to tasks she wasn’t trained for.

The woman’s manager wanted her to do her job as a waitress and a dishwasher, as there were no dishwashers scheduled for the morning shift.

So the waiter informed the manager that she was not being paid to do the dishes.

In a TikTok video that has been viewed more than 4 million times, the waitress, Caelyn, reveals that she worked at a bar and grill in Iowa and was scheduled to work on the morning of New Year’s Day.

She explains that during the morning shift, there are no dishwashers scheduled in the kitchen and they only arrive at night.

Prior to the incident that resulted in her being terminated from the restaurant, Caelyn claims that she never had any problems with managers or employees and that she was always on time and did her job correctly.
