We're humans—we're going to try and make the best of any situation. That includes having to work in horrible conditions because we need the money to pay our rent and bills. The truth is, however, is that you can spruce up your work area as much as you like—put up artwork, throw a rug down here and there, and keep the fridge stocked—but if you aren't being treated well as an employee, you should quit. And that is exactly what this Redditor did after trying her best to make her work situation a c…
