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.

Entitled Office Coworker Can't Handle Service Job

People overlook the day-to-day frustration of working in retail, service, and anywhere else where you might come into contact with a wild Karen.

This Tumblr user got to see their coworker have a learning moment.

People Who Worked Smarter, Not Harder

Some of the greatest innovations at work come from human laziness. It's just not a good idea to work extra hard when you can think of a way to do the same work more efficiently. That said, don't do too good of a job or your boss might find out that you don't need to work there anymore. One or two of these definitely backfired. And a few definitely weren't as smart as the person first thought.
