Boss Denies Employee's Necessary PC Upgrade, Malicious Compliance Ensues

It's funny how that works out. Sometimes the people who truly aren't the tech savvy ones assume that they know everything about how the technology is supposed to work. In this case though, it's nice to see that the boss didn't end up being a total monster, and if anything, by the ending it was nothing but nice wholesome vibes.

Boss Orchestrates Their Own Downfall

The biggest kicker in this ridiculous scenario is that a competent boss who was actually pulling their weight would've said just this, but then nothing would've happened because the competent boss was fulfilling the duties of their job. Unfortunately, this boss was not doing their job. So, after the employee complied the boss was exposed for not doing their job. If they'd never said anything, they would've been a whole lot better off. 

Boss tells employee that they're not a manager, so malicious compliance ensues | r/MaliciousCompliance Join u/more-input 22h Boss tells l'm not manager so stopped doing her job M background work mental health and substance use services have worked my job long time now.

Crazy Boss Tries To Overwork Employee, Doesn't Pay Accordingly, Regrets It

Man, this boss was clearly blind to their own ignorant toxicity. If you're going to hire someone and pay them double the person that is training the new person, there is clearly a monstrous hole in your logic.

Fortunately, it sounds like inconsiderate boss learned their lesson.

Rude Customer Gives Warehouse Worker Attitude, Instant Karma Ensues

We'll never understand what compels customers to be rude for no reason. It's clearly some unfortunate manifestation of whatever inner turmoil is boiling beneath their surface. That being said, this particular customer decided to give some perfectly kind and helpful warehouse workers a whole lot of attitude, when he went to pick up his couch. So, they decided to approach the situation with some nice malicious compliance. Can't imagine what that customer's face looked like when he realized his new couch had flown out the back of his truck.

Man Follows Contracted Hours, Team Follows Suit, Management Caves

Man, oh, man, it sounds like this particular management team was terribly detached and clueless. They continued to send in uniformed representatives, as their company was proactively losing money, and wasted a whole lot of time when they could've actually resolved the issue. All that it took to set the whole thing in motion was one employee strictly following their contracted hours.

Tenants Break All The Rules, Ask Landlord To Be More Professional

Man, oh, man, these tenants sound like a nightmare to deal with. The kudos definitely goes to the landlord here. The landlord handles the situation by listening to those malicious compliance chills, and using the very "professional" rules they asked the landlord to follow, to ultimately bring the tenants down. Even after the victory in the small claims court, the landlord exercises self control and doesn't rub it in their faces. Good for her. Love to see a situation where the landlord is actually being the nice human.

Staff Sergeant Micromanages Logistics Department, Revenge Ensues

Man, oh, man, we love a good old military revenge. They usually possess just the right amount of malicious compliance. This micromanaging staff sergeant learned a painful lesson in the value of leaving the logistics to the logistics department. Just picturing these trucks rolling up to their very incorrect location, which happened to be a vast and empty desert is really the icing on the cake.

Frustrated Tutor Gives Wrong Answers to Lazy Student

School can be hard and regrettably expensive. Seeing your classmates not take anything seriously and still pass can be frustrating when you value your education, like this entitled college slacker who demanded their classmates notes and got denied. Also, if they're trying to be something like a doctor, you'd hope they actually study and know their field. This tutor got so frustrated with a ridiculously lazy student that he went and gave him some answers. Not the right answers, just some answers. Other teachers have wily ways of outsmarting cheaters, like this old professor.
