Woman's promotion insulted over breast size, her comeback shocks everyone 😲

A woman gets promoted at her company after 3 years of hard work but is insulted by a co-worker named Michael. He claimed that the only reason she got the promotion was because of her breast size. Shocked by his comment, she responds by saying, "The reason you got a demotion was because of your brain size!"

Her comeback not only shuts Michael down but also makes her co-workers laugh. However, some of her colleagues later approach her and suggest that she could have talked to Michael in private instead of humiliating him in front of everyone.

The woman is now questioning whether or not she was the a**hole in this situation and is feeling guilty about her actions. Read on to see how people on Reddit reacted to her story and whether or not they think she owes Michael an apology.
