Unfair Manager Threatens Staff, They All Walk Out

It's everyone's fantasy at some point in time to be able to just say enough is enough and walk out the door of their job. These employees were put through enough that they felt it was a reasonable option. And not only that, they came back for burgers. For another satisfying walkout story, here's an employee who walked out but ended up getting promoted. And here are some "screw this, I'm out" moments.

Bus Driver Strategically Gets Rid of Bus Zone Parkers

It's all about aligning those incentives and consequences. This bus driver was told not to pick people up outside of the designated zones, but dudes just kept parking in those zones, so naturally something had to give. When put in a no-win situation, it's time to change the game. Parking can be a big source of stress and justice, like this one where a guy teaches a lesson to a handicap spot hog.

Employee Battles Micromanaging Boss With Nano Reporting

Who knows what goes through the mind of a manager who would rather have their employees spend all their time reporting on their work than actually working. This employee saw right through it and came up with a plan to show them exactly how dumb the new policy was. For another incompetent boss, here's a manager who suspended an employee and expected them at their next shift.

Guy Buys Suit of Armor, Ends Up Roleplaying as Manager

If only there could always be a threatening guy in a suit of armor for every single negative customer encounter. It's probably hard not to listen to anyone standing 6 foot 5 in a suit of armor. Sometimes the ol' manager switcheroo works out, like this entitled customer who came in after close and got kicked out by the "manager." It must feel pretty good to be someone's literal knight in shining armor.

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.

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.

Manager Assumes Employee's Job Is Unnecessary, Learns Otherwise

What we have here is yet another fine example in a seemingly endless series of managers that never should've been put into positions of power in the first place. Sometimes though, the incompetent managers of the world just need to learn that their ignorant assumptions about the necessary/unnecessary nature of an employee's job through a brutal reality check. Fair to say that such a thing was accomplished in this scenario.
