If you're having a rough day, you're not alone — and there are others probably far worse off than you. Take author Quinn Cummings, for example. Cummings recently took to Twitter to share the painfully hilarious story of the worst decision she ever made in the workplace. And it was... pretty bad.

"Gather round, Gentle Readers — it is time I tell the story of the worst decision I ever made in an office," she tweeted. "Some of you have heard this. Some have not. Whatever you do in your office today, this week, the rest of this year, you can console yourself by recalling this tale."

Cummings tells the very vivid story of the time she was working as a talent agent under a more senior, diabolical agent (and real-life Miranda Priestly of The Devil Wears Prada), Susan Smith. We don't want to give away too much information, so we'll let you read it for yourselves.

The harrowing tale unfolds as such...
