Company Won't Replace One Computer, Wastes Thousands of Dollars

There are few companies where management actually knows what's going on. This person had a nearly unusable computer that doubled as a server, and since no one wanted to actually do anything about it, the company felt the pain for the next long while. Weird how some stuff just slips through the cracks. In an opposite but similar vein, here's a guy who improved company efficiency but had that disbanded by management. For an IT triumph, here's a time when management illegally banned overtime pay but IT got it all back.

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.

There's nothing that quite grinds one's gears like reading about a maniacal business manager who misplaced their moral compass and decided that they'd try to take advantage of hard working employees that don't know any better.

The woman in this AITA story asked folks whether or not she was in the wrong for alerting her old coworkers to why she quit the gig. People seem to be in agreement that what she did was nothing but righteous.

These high-maintenance or otherwise impossible customers really shouldn't be allowed out in public.
