A gas station worker in Michigan fed up with his late manager locks up and leaves a public note — that’s now gone viral.

The worker did it after his boss didn’t show up for work for more than an hour. He taped it on the front door, along with a “help wanted” sign.

The sign read:

“Hey boss, learn to be on time or at least communicate when you are going to be late. One hour with no phone call is unacceptable. As you can see, the doors are locked. I went home. Fire me if you must, but realize I walked out due to your negligence.”

After the incident, the boss said she was running late because she didn’t hear her alarm, but never received a call from the worker, according to Daily Mail.

    People who are late are irresponsible! One hour late is unexceptable. The manager should be fired. I applaud that worker. Who needs a job like that….he was being taken advantage of.

    Uh Yea the boss seriously needs reevaluated. Its not the employees job to call and remind the boss its time to come to work. Would the boss call the employee and remind them? I wouldn’t… Good for that guy more employees should hold their bosses accountable

    “She never recieved a call from the worker” um…. hi. Welcome to the world of responsible adults. It is not your EMPLOYEE’S responsibility to make sure that you come to work on time! Get it together!!!!!

    She said she never got a call. Hey Lady you we’re suppose to call him when you knew you were late..

    If I owned the company I would of promoted the worker to boss and boss to worker. Since when is it the responsibility of those you supervise to make sure the boss shows up to work? Do u think they are hiring now?

    The Boss didn’t receive a call from her employee? Not his responsibility. Did she try calling him once she woke up (or was he already gone). I’m guessing this wasn’t the first time the boss was late for Joe to do this.

    I worked at a company where the manager threw expired food at me and another worker I covered my shift with someone wrote a note to her and left they would not even look at the tape.
