His boss stands in front of a grill holding a spatula, where he has already prepared eggs, bacon, and breakfast potatoes — and for those who do not eat meat, this boss comes prepared. The employee added that he prepares a separate meal for one of his vegetarian workers.


Redditors were touched by the boss’ efforts to go the extra mile to show his employees that he appreciates all of their work. “The little things that show he cares. Very cool!” one user commented. “I love this. It's so important to look after your community,” another user noted.

Other employees shared similar actions their own bosses did for their companies.

“I had a manager/boss that baked amazing tourtiere pies and shared them with all of her employees,” one user revealed. “She earned the highest respect for caring for others yet having the business sense to keep everybody focused on their individual tasks and jobs.” “When I was a pharmacy supervisor I used to bring donuts for my team (75 people) every Friday,” another user wrote.

He is currently working as a CSC but hopes to one day be an estimator. So far, he has been enjoying his time with the company. “[I’ve] Only been here a few weeks but it was a completely different vibe and is seriously great so far,” he wrote. 


He adds that while his boss can be tough on his employees from time to time, he is overall a respectful leader that his workers look up to. “He’s a hard a–, but he cares,” he shared. “He just wants us to be our best and he really helps make that happen with the little things like making food.”
