Boss Uses Eye Gag to Remove Problem Customers

Gotta love a manager with a sense of humor to match their intolerance for idiotic customers. Employees have dealt with some ridiculous customer demands, having to debase themselves for the flawed and almighty " customer is always right" mentality. Here's another one where a customer weaponized a tip jar to defeat a Karen.

Employee Gets Back At Unreasonable Manager By Working Exact Hours

Many jobs require their employees to be on deck at irregular or unscheduled times, which can get a little hairy if they're not being paid for it. Many bosses know that this isn't exactly fair so they'll cut their employees some slack here and there when they know the schedule is weird. This manager didn't, so he got hit with the classic, much like this other employee who derailed their incompetent boss by working their scheduled hours.

Guy Who Didn't Work at Walmart Fired by Walmart Manager

This random dude wearing a blue shirt had a run-in with a manager who was eager to fire someone she didn't even recognize. This one's kind of the opposite of this chef who was hired by a law firm just to foil the security guard. Employees of huge retail chains have to put up with some strange problems at work, like this guy who got hired and through a series of mistakes, never did anything but still stayed employed for months

Incompetent Manager Tries To Make Employee Work After Firing Them

There are some people and jobs out there that it just feel too good to get away from. In this case it was a tyrannical boss who flouted the rules and tried to make someone work after firing them. Quitting a frustrating situation and having a "screw this, I'm out" moment can lead us to reevaluating ourselves and moving on to something better. Bosses can suck, like this incompetent manager who forbid overtime and had it totally backfire.

Boss Tells Lab Manager To Alter Inventory Reports, Completely Backfires

It sounds like this boss was just trying to cut corners in an area of their job that they simply couldn't afford to take shortcuts in. Suffice to say, after they tell their lab manager to alter some inventory reports, the lab gets a bit of a walkthrough inspection, and things quickly blow up from there. It was really only ever going to go that way. 

Check out some more malicious compliance gold with this incompetent boss who insisted on using an errant GPS, and then karma ensued

Boss Forbids Use of Work Truck, Surprised When No Work Is Done

We've all had penny pinching bosses who ask too much, but sometimes they set themselves up for failure. It's not a lot of fun to have a boss who tries to enforce contradicting rules. He didn't really give these guys a choice, and to top it all of, went totally incommunicado. Here's one where management illegally banned overtime pay but IT got it all back.

Boss Expects Work Without Pay, Gets What He Pays For

This boss wanted a manager that he didn't have to pay extra. Instead of going along with the BS, this employee decided enough was enough and let the boss get exactly the amount of work he was paying for. Incompetent managers have a way of biting themselves in the ass, like this incompetent manager who forbid overtime. Here are more people's "screw this, I'm out" stories.

Boss Micromanages Themselves Out of The Job

Bad managers have a habit of losing sight of all the non-necessary and extra tasks they demand of their employees. It just so happens, a lot of times when employees revolt by doing their exact job description, the shortcomings of the boss are revealed. It's kind of beautiful, actually.

Boss Has Terrible Idea, Employee Disregards Idea, Boss Learns Lesson

Man, nothing's quite as grim as the moment that anyone realizes they're working under an incompetent manager who is inevitably going to put the company in hot water, if they continue onward in their mindless ways. Well, this boss certainly sounds like they never should've been put in the position of power that they were to begin with. Fortunately, the employee working under them had the mindful presence to not obey (dumb) orders, and managed to keep the company in compliance when it was all said and done.

People Who Worked Smarter, Not Harder

Some of the greatest innovations at work come from human laziness. It's just not a good idea to work extra hard when you can think of a way to do the same work more efficiently. That said, don't do too good of a job or your boss might find out that you don't need to work there anymore. One or two of these definitely backfired. And a few definitely weren't as smart as the person first thought.

People tell stories of times their laziness made them work more efficiently | post by SirSithsalot remember having peel 20kg charred eggplant at restaurant worked asked chef if there an easier way do His reply yep, get someone else do

Stellar Manager Handles Layoff Like a Boss

So many people have been absolutely burned by layoffs in the past that seeing a story like this is a rare and welcome diamond in the rough. This person acted with the kind of understanding and responsibility that a cool manager should.

Employee Points Out Security Concern, Nobody Listens, Robbery Ensues

Sometimes, the only way that you can get through to people that seem committed to not listening to your warnings is to take matters into your own hands, and show them why they should've listened. This particular move was certainly a bold one, and we can't say we'd advise anyone to follow suit. But at least the point was proved, and the security measures in the museum were brought up to the level they needed to be at. Check out some more gold from Tumblr with this wild thread where Tumblr users go all in on "The Incredibles" analysis.

Work Memes to Hide from the Boss

Work. We need to do it to not be hungry and cold, but other than that it's missing some benefits. Depending on their job, most people would rather just sit and be bored. And everyone's attitude at work is a strange combination of trying to do as little as possible while blaming everyone around them for doing as little as possible. It can get rough. At least there are work memes to blow off work steams.
