Stupid Manager Gets Most of Store Fired

Incompetent power-tripping managers can get themselves into some really stupid situations, like this boss who demanded a special contractor be on call 24/7 and ended up with a $10K invoice. In lucky situations, incompetent managers get called on their BS and have to actually deal with the ramifications of their actions, rather than pushing the burden onto their employees.

Manager Doesn't Know What A Computer Is, Throws Away Forty of Them

People have a pretty abysmal knowledge of computers, but almost never so bad that they try to have them removed from their office. IT people have to be very patient when a customer's computer won't work. Sometimes people don't know what a power button is. We don't envy people who have to deal with this level of ignorance on a daily basis.

People try to work their way around them, like this guy who battled his work tie policy by buying excessively ugly ties. But when your required work attire is something that is uncomfortable, painful, and actively makes your job harder, then it's time to make a statement. This woman went hard.
