A woman has shared her heartbreak online after an employer refused to accommodate her ‘time blindness’.
Sarah Trefren took to TikTok and told viewers about a recent interaction she had with an employer.
“So I just got yelled at for asking a very reasonable question. So I’m applying to go somewhere and I just wanted to know, are there accommodations for people who struggle with time blindness and being on time,” she said in the video.
Sarah said it was a reasonable thing to ask but she received an unexpected response.
“And then the person I was with interrupted and acted like I was asking something else, and then when we were done they actually started yelling at me and saying that accommodations for time blindness doesn’t exist and if you struggle being on time you’ll never be able to get a job,” she went on.
She also claimed that the employer told her: “Your stupid generation wants to destroy the workplace,” to which she replied: “Well yeah, I think that a culture where workers are just cut off because they struggle with being on time when there’s other solutions that we can look to – I think that just anybody who thinks it’s ok to just treat people like that – yeah, that culture needs to be dismantled.”
Viewers were left divided by her post, with one person commenting: “Arriving at the emergency room with a heart attack but having to wait 45 minutes because the doctor has time blindness.”
Another said: “What’s the difference between someone with time blindness and someone who just doesn’t put in the effort to be on time?”
A third said: “Being on time is the absolute minimum requirement for a job.”
Someone else said: “I have time blindness and I do alot of prep to be on time. It’s our problem.”
