Worker says she went back to her old job after hating the new one
A TikToker went viral after posting about a new job that she “hated” so much that she immediately quit and went back to her old position.
Cristina Georgia (@chrisssyxg) said colleagues at her original place of work even pooled some money to give her as a parting gift, which she returned when she returned.
@chrisssyxg Don’t worry I gave everyone their money back. 🤣🤣🤣 #itrynottokmyself #quityourjob #embarrassing #onlyme #jobless #momsoftiktok ♬ WHY YOU ALL USE THIS SOUND OML – CYRUS
Georgia writes in a text overlay for TikTok, “Thinking about the time I quit my job 2 weeks and they gave me a card and raised $$$. I hated the new job and came back 2 days later.”
Other users who viewed Georgia’s post commented that they had similar employment experiences. User @vanessaalejandro3 wrote: “I did that, they threw a party for me and I came back 7 weeks later. Sometimes the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.”
Another said: “I came back 3 years later so I don’t feel that bad but I still feel bad about the farewell party they threw at me,” while user @lemoneelime wrote: “Monday and Tuesday in the new work …. Wednesday called I’m sick but called my previous job…quit new job on Wednesday and resumed old job on Thursday.”
The Daily Dot reached out to Georgia via TikTok comment for more information.
