‘You Are Always Dispensable’: Woman Says That After She Left Her Job, She Was Replaced In 3 Hours

A TikToker says that after she left a job for which she worked overtime frequently, she was replaced within three hours of leaving.

Norah Myers, a TikToker who posts about wellness, said in a video Wednesday that she left a job for which she “went in early every morning, left late, and worked weekends.”

“You are always dispensable,” Myers says in her video, which on Monday had over 4 million views. “No job is worth your mental and physical health ever.”

In her video’s comments, Myers shared that after leaving another corporate job, she was replaced by two people. Both were fired within a month.

“All that matters at the end of the day is your relationships with family and friends,” Myers commented on her video.

Commenters on Myers’ video heartily agreed with her sentiment.

“Always remember, we work for ourselves, not for a company, even if we are working with the nicest people,” @emegrimaldi commented.

“No job is ever worth our health, ever. It means everything to us, and nothing to them,” @mypearwontgrow wrote.

“This is so true and so disheartening,” @kianahkaydijohn commented. “But it’s good to learn.”

Others shared their experiences leaving jobs that they felt didn’t value them.

“When I left a toxic company that didn’t value my work, they had to hire two people to do my job,” @rigovgd commented. “They wouldn’t give me a raise but did that instead.”

“I left a job that I worked so hard at. They replaced me in 1 day,” @mr.buggles wrote. “The mental anguish I felt at that place was bad.”

Hong Kong Mall Hilariously Replaces Racy Scantily-Clad Pin-Up Girls After Takedown Complaint

A mall frequented by locals in Hong Kong has addressed furor surrounding provocative illustrations of scantily-clad women… by somehow making them more outrageous. 

The nine-story Dragon Centre at Hong Kong’s Sham Shui Po had been recognizable for its racy billboards by illustrator Elphonso Lam Cheung-kwan depicting pin-up girls in swimsuits, sportswear, and school uniforms. 

The risqué appeal became part of the mall’s branding, and nuances of it were even added to buses. 

However, not all locals were receptive to this sort of aesthetic. According to the Hong Kong Standard, district councilor Nicole Lau Pui-yuk from the conservative Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong pushed for the artworks to be taken down following complaints from parents, who thought the imagery was inappropriate and raunchy. 

The artist responded that the illustrations had been approved by the Obscene Articles Tribunal, and suggested that the graphics would only be indecent if the viewer’s thoughts were indecent in the first place. 

Nonetheless, disgruntled parents got what they wished for—though not exactly in the way they had imagined. Instead of wholly replacing the imagery, Dragon Centre kept faithful to its cheeky branding by parodying the original graphics.
