Senior Manager Gets Employee Fired, Employee Digs Up Manager's Dirty Past

If you have skeletons hanging out in your closet, it's probably best to not make it your personal mission to get an employee terminated over a whole bunch of nonsense. In this case, the employee did a little research on their old senior manager after being fired, and ended up learning that the senior manager had a bit of a troubled, secret past. Suffice to say, that was it for the senior manager, and the employee ended up being offered their gig.

Moments People Realized Their Jobs Were Toxic

Sometimes during the job interview process you unfortunately overlook the glaring red flags. As a result you can find yourself entrenched in a gig that seems to slowly yet consistently drain your soul. Life is far too short to put up with a toxic workplace environment. There are numerous opportunities out there. Sometimes they're hard to find, but the amount of good it'll do your mental health to remove yourself from a job that's occupied by toxic energy vampires is priceless.

Manager Tells Pregnant Employee To Stop Slacking

This is one of those instances when the person involved and the question their asking is so far out of left field that it's genuinely hard to believe that they are in fact a real person. Like, dude. You really have the audacity to give a pregnant woman grief over her energy levels? The fact that they're asking folks on Reddit's AITA section whether or not they're in the wrong should've already been an indication that they'd misplaced their moral compass.

Company Won't Replace One Computer, Wastes Thousands of Dollars

There are few companies where management actually knows what's going on. This person had a nearly unusable computer that doubled as a server, and since no one wanted to actually do anything about it, the company felt the pain for the next long while. Weird how some stuff just slips through the cracks. In an opposite but similar vein, here's a guy who improved company efficiency but had that disbanded by management. For an IT triumph, here's a time when management illegally banned overtime pay but IT got it all back.

Incompetent Boss Insists On Using Errant GPS, Karma Ensues

Thus was the case with this employee who decided to follow their boss' orders despite being well aware that they drove past the correct exit ramp. 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

Kid Infiltrates Walmart By Wearing Neon Vest

Anyone who has worked anywhere knows that you could walk into just about any business or institution carrying a ladder, holding a clipboard, wearing hard hat or hi vis jacket and not be questioned.

Incompetent Manager Fires Only OSHA Certified Employee, It Backfires

This company clearly made a big mistake when they fired their only OSHA certified forklift operator. Fortunately, the forklift operator was able to maintain enough presence in the face of that unfortunate development, and ultimately report them, and get them fined to oblivion.

Co-Worker Scams Free Lunches Out Of People, Gets Called Out

Mooches are the worst. They plead and they whine and they often try to take advantage of other people's kindness. Then when they get caught up in their cheap little scams they cry out from their pity trains, and try to make the people that originally helped them out, to be the ones that are in the wrong. It's ridiculous, and a poor reflection of humanity. This particular choosing beggar co-worker got called out, and honestly it seems like it was a long time coming.

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.
