A little background
OP fell out with their boss after criticizing his ideas for the ad
OP’s mom wants them to apologize
Here’s how the Reddit community reacted to the story:
“Your job is answering emails and organizing his calendar, not weighing in on his creative decisions.”
“YTA. I'm in the industry and people like you are truly insufferable.”
“YTA. PA doesn’t mean tell the director or the actor what they need to do differently.”
“Of course YTA. Stay in your lane.“
“You’re a presumptuous employee who just tantrumed your way out of a job.”
“You are literally the least important person on the set and your opinion carries no weight.“
“Omfg you’re a PA and repositioned a camera!? Clearly you’re an inexperienced or completely shit PA.”
“Old does not mean out of touch, and young does not mean clued in. YTA.”
“You're a Production Assistant. Your job is to fetch coffee, send emails, bring talent to locations etc.”
OP is really getting the heat from the Reddit community. Indeed, there’s only one a**hole in this story, and it’s definitely not the director.
Commenters have reiterated that OP went out of line, especially since their job description doesn’t involve giving advice or setting up cameras. It’s even surprising that OP still has the option to apologize and keep their job—but whether they take it remains to be seen.
