Smart Employee Gets Fake Fired to Prank Awful Customers

This young employee asked whether it was wrong to toy with the emotions of overly dick-ish customers by getting fake fired in front of them. It seems like a pretty harmless practice and gets bad customers to rethink their roles. We wonder what would happen if a customer just said "good!" People have ways of dealing with bad customers like this flight attendant who handled a problem flyer or this donut shop owner responding to a bad review with humility.

Overworked Employee Revolts By Doing His Exact Job Description

People often find after they're hired that their job description doesn't cover nearly as much as what they're actually expected to do. Already stretched to the limit with a dwindling and under-qualified staff, this guy was asked to "do his job" so that's exactly what he did. People have different responses to being bullied at work, like this employee who prank fires themselves or this guy who stood up to his boss who didn't allow sick days.
