A social media user recently took to micro blogging platform, Twitter, with a narration of the circumstances that led to the loss of his job.
According to the yet-to-be identified individual, he got a phone call from home while he was at work, telling him that his mother had a health emergency.
Upon receiving the call, he explained that he went to his supervisor to ask for permission, but she declined. However, when he approached the HR officer, he was told to complete his task for the day and fill an exeat notice before leaving the office.
He, however, ignored due process and rushed all the way home to attend to his sick mum. On getting home, the individual realized that the call was a prank from his family, and they only wanted him home because his sister who left the country 10 years ago was back.
The Twitter user explained further that by the time he checked his mail, a termination letter had been sent to him from work.

I'm really sick and tired of companies playing God, Let's assume your mum was really ill was the decision taken by the company the best? That company is indirectly practicing slave trade.

OK! First of all your family no try. But then, your super & HR are heartless and inhumane, but they are not the owners of the company. You should try to make contact with the actual boss smf explain your ordeal (without telling them your family pranked you)…
