Employees Of A Mall Shoe Store Apparently Walked Out And Left This Angry Note For Their Boss

Employees of a Journeys shoe store in Rochester, N.Y. apparently walked out in the middle of a recent workday and left this angry note posted to the store gate after they locked up:

Gawker alerted us to the Reddit post that called attention to the photo. Gawker says “Jamie” is a district manager for Journeys.

It appears the dramatic walk-out was triggered by the district manager telling an employee that “cancer is not an excuse” along with other abusive treatment of staff.

Multiple commenters on the Reddit thread wrote about the poor work environment and high manager turnover at Journeys.

UPDATE: Journeys has sent us this statement: “We take situations like this seriously and are currently investigating this issue. Beyond this, we have no comment.”
