American Kevin B. *His birthday is on August 7th. Because he suffers from an anxiety disorder, he only had one desire: not to party. He said that to his boss at a Kentucky medical lab in 2019. Instead of honoring the request, they organized a big surprise party — and took their employee by surprise.
B had a panic attack on the spot and crashed into his car, eventually spending his lunch break there. Then he angrily wrote to his boss and asked her why she didn’t respect his wish like he did “Mirror” mentioned. According to the company, the moderator simply forgot to order.
The day after the party, Kevin B. was asked to meet in his manager’s office. Rather than offer an apology, he was told he was acting like a “little girl” and “stole joy” from the staff. When the American then suffered another panic attack, his superiors left him alone. When the attack was over, he was sent home.
