"Hellokittypityparty" shared snapshots of her conversation with the boss, in which the latter said they "don't think that training would work out" for her.

To this, the woman replied, "I didn't really realise that a dangerous night of bloodsugars so high they could've put me in a hospital bed would be the end of working there, so yeah, I guess training is a no-go, but I won't pretend to appreciate the gesture of dropping off my things as I think it's quite likely that you simply can't face the gross decision of firing somebody over a medical emergency, let alone look me in the eye afterwards."

She further said, "If you had requested, I could have supplied a doctor's note, or even just sent photos of my glucose readings if my state of health was simply too unbelievable for you to process. It's rather sad that you guys were so kind for such a short period of time; a mask typically is capable of lasting longer, especially since I wasn't even on the schedule today; I volunteered to come in and then happened to have an emergency."

"I don't know why people forget that the folks they employ are human beings," posted a third.
