Company Takes Employee For Granted, Malicious Compliance Ensues

Unfortunately, this isn't the first time that we've encountered a tale involving a company failing to recognize one of their employees for what they're worth, and we highly doubt it'll be the last time. Fortunately though, this little emotional rollercoaster has a happy ending. Those cheap payroll departments can get to be quite spendy. 

Company takes their employee for granted, so the employee shows their worth.

Maniacal Building Manager Grills Fire Marshall, Fire Marshal Plays Into It

This isn't the first time that we've seen someone in a position of power let all that intoxicating authority get to their heads, and we sure doubt it'll be the last time. It sounds like this building manager was just asking for a bit of a wakeup call. Fortunately, the fire marshal had the presence of mind to give it to him. And just picturing the rest of the people that were subjected to that infuriatingly long fire drill, rally around to vocalize their complaints is really something special.

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.

Boss Docks Wages Illegally, Employee Crushes His Dreams

May it be a lesson to all bosses that bullying your employees isn't a good business strategy. It's also a lesson in how far some people are willing to go for "the principle of the thing." And this kind of stuff can happen at any level of employment, like in a fast food joint where this boss threatened the staff so all the employees walked out.
