Contract jobs can go one of two ways: you can pretty much be left alone to do your work in peace, or you’ll get supervisors breathing down your neck day in and day out.

And it sounds like a woman named Lexie had to deal with the latter in a recent contract job.

Lexie said, “Work culture is so funny. Like you will have a 50-year-old woman screaming at you because you left five minutes early.”

Lexie continued, “Can we just have an adult-to-adult conversation of like, if all my work is done, and it’s three even 10 minutes, 15 minutes before I’m supposed to leave? Can’t I leave?”

She ended her video by saying, “I wouldn’t be doing anything anyways, I might as well get a head start on my commute, that, Lord knows, I have to live like 30 minutes away from where I actually work because affordable housing doesn’t exist.”

Sounds pretty over the top to me!
