Times People Were Able To Witness Their Enemies' Downfalls

Nothing quite uplifts the downtrodden spirits like being able to witness or hear about your archenemy enduring their ultimate demise. It's pretty much music to the ears. Especially if you were chugging along through life with the exhausting weight of a profound grudge being held against them. Maybe these people's stories will strike a chord for some folks out there.

Just because someone's being paid to do their job doesn't mean that they're not prone to moments of complete and helpless failure. Some failures are more impactful than others. This particular failtastrophe involves a power plant chimney falling across some wires and right on into some poor and unfortunate building storing transformers.

Incompetent Boss Insists On Using Errant GPS, Karma Ensues

If you ever have a boss who rudely insists that you "don't think" while you're in the driver's seat, you certainly have the opportunity to serve up a whopping plate of malicious compliance.

Naturally, the boss was not stoked, but clearly had a moment of sobering realization that they vastly underestimated their employee's ability to follow instructions. Check out some more juicy malicious compliance content with this call center that wouldn't give their employee a raise, so malicious compliance ensued
