Haven't read nearly enough of these, but I've got one. My Best Friend (BF) comes from a whole family of special snowflakes in their jobs, but she takes the cake.
She had a really good seasonal job working at one of the professional sports arenas in town. She worked an elevator for the very expensive suites. At one point she had the authority to turn away a few Secret Service agents because of the load limits of the elevator, and they had some Big Government Official coming to the game. She always says that was the highest point of her job. Literally all she had to do was hit the buttons on the elevator during games, and make sure there weren't too many people in it at once. Tickets were already checked before they got to her, so she didn't even need to do that. And she was always in uniform and there, which wasn't a problem. The problem was that her boss told her several times that she wasn't allowed to have anything with her in the elevator. She had her stool to sit on and that was it. Boring? Sure, but it was a NICE job. But she'd have two or three books at once with her because her attention tended to stray and she couldn't focus on just one. And she'd have to have her phone, too, with all the data and games. She still did her job, but when the boss showed her the camera footage and she argued with him that she was still getting everything done AFTER she'd already been written up for it, she got forcibly transferred.
Now she works in the parking lot as a parking attendant. Much lower pay, much fewer hours (they're generally told to go home within an hour or so of the game starting, except for a select few who are there to direct traffic after the game). And now that she's getting less money, she can't afford the upkeep on her car, so she can't get reliable transportation to or from work. And she refuses to look for another job because it might interfere with this one, which lasts only a few months a year.
Don't get me wrong, I love her and all, but really?
