Admin Tells IT Guy to Look Busy So He Runs Errands

There’s that age old problem of being hired to do a job that works on a task by task basis, but you’re still paid hourly, so half of your time is spent pretending to do your job just so management stays happy. These guys said screw that. For some funny IT stories, here are ridiculous requests IT workers received.

No problem. oc M My buddy and I were hired to be a glorified help desk, support, hand holders for a special project.

AskReddit Thread: Ways Workers Got Their Bosses Fired

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going on the ways that workers managed to get their bosses fired. The workplace can stir up some serious dramas, and sometimes people need to go, regardless of their positions in a company. These cases blend together all kinds of satisfying tales that sometimes border on those cases of pro revenge that we’ve come to enjoy.

She was fired and they called me and offered my job back before the week was out.

Employee Amuses Himself, Delights Customers, Irritates Manager

This employee sounds like he was having a fun time not taking anything too seriously. Upon getting a request from some customers for some ice cream, and not knowing which size bowls, he made the most out of the confusion. A solid tale of malicious compliance.

In this restaurant, the kids' meal comes with ice cream. But, you have to serve yourself. That was a problem because there weren't any bowls beside the ice cream machine.

2.

Text - So I thought, "I know what to do. I'll simply ask an employee for some bowls." And that's just what I did. So he turns to look at the vast array of bowls behind him, some sauce-sized, some entree salad-sized, and many in between. And we realize that neither of us knows what size the kids' ice cream is intended to be. So he thought, "I know what to do. l'll simply ask a manager." And he says, "hey boss, what do we put the kids' ice cream in?"

The boss, with his inimitable charm, tact, and grace, says "JUST FUCKING GIVE HIM A BOWL." The employee looked back at the bowls, and then I saw him get a big grin over his face. "I apologize about that, sir. I think it's probably these ones," he says, as he hands me two of the largest bowls they have in the restaurant, practically giggling with glee. My children were similarly delighte

Manager Tries To Fire Employee, Ends Up Out Of Job

This manager was power tripping all over the place. Fortunately, the employee was ready to take their revenge, and the manager’s fraudulent practices end up being their ultimate undoing. We love a good revenge story where the manager gets what was coming to them in the end.

With more overdraft charges.I proceeded to hand my notice in.

Alongside the lost revenue that was the new managers fault and the now £1500 the c

I had the handbook at the ready and pointed out that he was violating policy and I would be writing him up (HR would've been proud). He huffed and went back to

Text - jerkythejerk • 18h I fired our "web guru" after he copied our entire product, supplier, customer, and order history database onto an AWS server and tried to sell the data to our competitors. We found out after we stumbled across a copy of our website registered in his name with godaddy.com while doing market research. We screencapped all his activity and he's currently in prison.

Cinema Manager Blocks Guy’s Promotion, Stock Room Revenge Follows

One does not simply block another person’s deserved promotion without the strong possibility of some backlash. This guy’s revenge played into the manager’s laziness in the perfect way. Job well done. 

One does not simply block another person’s deserved promotion without the strong possibility of some backlash. This guy’s revenge played into the manager’s laziness in the perfect way. Job well done.

Text - r/ProRevenge u/MumblyBum • 2y + JOIN Block my promotion? You silly silly man! This was a few years ago. I got a job in a cinema, I was 4 or 5 years older than most of my co-workers whom it was most of their first jobs. Having had a couple of jobs previous and a few years of maturity under my belt, I quickly became a very valued employee, so much so, I was given a promotion to Supervisor within 6 months. The general manager loved me. I was a Swiss army knife. I would take care of projectio

2.

Text - We had one GM and four floor managers. They all liked me because I made their jobs a lot easier. When I was working they didn't have to work as hard and when it wasn't busy, they didn't have to work at all. Two more years go by and and one of the floor managers says she's leaving in 3 months. Without having to say it, I know l'm going to get her position. They always hire internally and I am head and shoulders above my co-workers. This is where it gets interesting. Let's call this manager

3.

Text - One Thursday I'm doing my projection checks and the GM says that blobby is sick, would I be able to do the stock take. Fuck it, l'll do it, a 9am to 11:30 pm (we have to count the stock at retail after we close hence the late finish) it's a horrible shift but the brownie points are worth it. So next week comes along and instead of doing my projection shift on Thursday l'm in to do a stock shift. I ask the GM what's going on and he said Blobby requested me in. Even though me and the GM get

4.

Text - I grit my teeth and go along with it. It makes sense to learn another avenue of the job. So Thursday nights come around and Blobby sits at his desk with his feet up while I basically do his job. It's not a difficult task and after a month it's a piece of piss. Let me paint a picture of Blobby. He's short, fat and balding. Ear pierced, thinks he's cool but he really isn't. Think David Brent from the office. Keep him on your side and work is a lot easier because he can be quite petty but wh

5.

Text - So the interview starts and I'm hit with "How do you expect to be our manager if your time keeping is so poor?" They have a list of times I clocked in late. 5 minutes here, 7 minutes there. The thing is, time keeping wasn't an issue. You come in late the odd time and then if they needed you to stay back, most would. Take a penny leave a penny scenario. But these guys go to town on me! The have surveillance footage of me taking in a delivery (which isn't part of my job) without wearing a h

6.

Text - My co-worker got it. If it wasn't me I was happy it was her. She was also very good at her job and would no doubt make a fine manager. So after giving so much for the company over 3 years I found my self doing things half-assed. Why go the extra mile when it wasn't appreciated. So I'm still on stock duty on a Thursday night. While Blobby is down dealing with a customer, I'm in the office inputting the stock figures. I accidently close the program. I open "Blobbys folder" where the program

7.

Text - We've already talked about Lates and DANGEROUS DELIVERY! The stealing one is me leaning over a closed till but looks like I'm trying to hide something (which i wasnt). Utter nonsense. "Associates" is pictures of me standing with my co-workers chatting when it wasn't busy and "hungover" was screenshots from my Facebook when I was out the night before and then in work the next day. It was clear as day that this cunt handed this information to the owners.

8.

Text - Finishing up that night was so fucking tough. I wanted to rip that ear ring out and pop his baldy head like a pimple but I played it cool and finished my shift. Monday comes around and I ask to talk to GM. I explain what iv found and it's really serious because it's invasion of privacy. CCTV should only be used to review footage when something goes wrong, not used to stalk me! The GM says he only found out after the interviews were over. The reason he didn't do them was because he was als

9.

Text - So I talk to my brother and sister who are a lot smarter than me about what roads to go down. File a complaint? What's the point when the owners used his dossier against me. Bring him to court? Too much hassle for very little payoff. If you're still reading I applaud you! High five! This is where it gets fun. Blobby wants the GM position more than anything. He has a bit of competition but he's the front runner. I could spend the next two months looking for work or could be ambitious and t

10.

Text - So l'm drinking with my girlfriend one night and we're joking around about how to get revenge. She scared me a little with her suggestions. Some tame ones like key his car and then a straight jump to "burn his house down". If any authorities are watching, we were only joking! And just like that fat boy signed his own death certificate. Whilst I'm on the stock shift he makes a passing remark. "We have to start nailing this stock take down to the last popcorn kernel. The yearly stock take i

11.

Text - "Don't worry Blobby, Mumblybum is on the case, those numbers will be perfect" and he goes for the oscar with this line "You're a good worker, fucking travesty you didn't get the managers job, but when I get the hot seat you'll be made a manager as soon as a position comes up. No interview required" What a prick! I'm so good at the stock take that he doesn't even check my work. I'm making the orders and counting the stock. So over the next 6 weeks I start to fuck shit up! I put the orders

12.

Text - I do this for the next 4 weeks. I'm royally fucked if he ever actually looked in the stock rooms. They're nearly exploding with product! Lucky for me and unlucky for him, he's a lazy cunt! It's the last week before the ball breaker does the end of year stock take. I balance everything on the computer as usual, before we call it a night I tell him to check the presales tomorrow. We're gonna have a busy weekend so I say to him "email our suppliers and get a bit extra, it will all get used a

13.

Text - When I get home that night I type up my resignation letter. I ask the GM who has a couple of weeks left if I can leave immediately due to unforeseen circumstances. He agrees because he's a good man and gives me his personal number and an amazing written reference, wishes me to best and thanks me for all my hard work. Like Andy Dufrense, iv crawled through a sea of shit and came out clean on the other side! I confide in one of the regular workers what iv done over a couple of pints. He sai

14.

Text - Word on the grapevine was that the yearly stock take went into the wee hours off the morning. 3am to be precise. Blobby was boxed in. The stock was a cluster fuck. Tens of thousands of euro off. He could take the blame himself and look incompetent or say I did it, to which he looks worse considering he was behind the dossier to slander me. I don't know what he did. All I know is he didn't get the GM position and within 6 months was working selling furniture! I never spoke to him about it

Fourteen Exhausted Memes For The Underappreciated Essential Workers

We hear the term “heroes” thrown around a lot when we talk about essential workers during this whole pandemic thing. Don’t get us wrong, we appreciate the hell out of all of you, but we also get that realistically, you have two sobering choices: either continue to go to work every day and risk your life, or stop going to work and risk being fired, losing your source of income. 

Either way, we appreciate you and just remember that this will all be over eventually.

Not Nearly As Cool

And think about the fact that your boss thinks an hour of your time is only worth $13…

Funny tweet that reads, "'I sold an hour of my life for $13' doesn't sound nearly as good as 'I make $13/hour'"

And think about the fact that your boss thinks an hour of your time is only worth $13…

Boss’s New “Take Prank Callers Seriously” Policy Backfires

Pizza delivery is one of the industries that has seen a few changes since the pandemic started, but the customers are the same people as always, so what can you do. The manager at this pizza place decided to respond to a rise in prank calls in probably the wrong way. For more pizza stuff, here are the many strange customers one pizza deliverer met.

1.

Text - r/MaliciousCompliance · Posted by u/CatJezus 18 hours ago Treat all prank calls as though they're serious? Sure, have fun making 180 extra large pizzas ос м I work in a major pizza delivery chain that has so far been unsuccessful in out-pizzaing the hut. Our store is in a college town, and everyone is bored as hell right now for obvious reasons. So we've gone from maybe one prank call a day to at least 3-5. Which isn't much but still really annoying with how much more business we've been

2.

Text - The worst part is how uncreative and low effort most of them are. At least 80% of them are "Can I get a boneless pizza", or "is this the Kristy Krab", with the occasional insert GTA fast food order copypasta here. This had been going on way to long so I took up the habit of just hanging up whenever someone starts saying some stupid shit. The boss wasn't too happy about this but didn't care enough to say anything until an incident where I hung up on someone who wanted that boneless pizza a

3.

Text - So I get a stern talking-to from boss man and he sends a message to the company's group chat app saying: "I know we've been getting more prank calls than usual, but please don't follow in certain people's footsteps and just hang up on them. Take the calls as seriously as possible. If they order something we can't make, calmly explain it to them and offer them something we do actually sell. We want to try to make money off of them even if they're acting dumb"

4.

Text - So the very next call is where the fun starts. "Thank you for calling, what can I get you" "I'm so00000 hungry, can I get an extra-extra-extra-extra large pizza with tripple every topping" "I'm sorry ma'am, we can only go up to one extra and double each topping" "Hmmmm ok then. Can I get twenty XL's of each meat y'all have. So like 20 pepperoni, 20 sausage, etcetera" These people are obviously high as hell and giggling in the background the whole time "Sure, give me a sec to ring it all u

5.

Text - So I place the order, and not 30 seconds later I hear "What the actual fuck" from the boss and he runs to the computer. "How are they paying for this?" He asks me. "they said with a check, we do still take checks for orders over $200 right?". "They can't have been serious, was this a prank call" "Not sure boss, you said take all calls seriously" He just grumbles and picks up the phone and calls the customer, and all I hear is super loud laughter as he hangs up.

6.

Text - Meanwhile, other employees have started actually making the ridiculous order not noticing anything weird about it. So by the time the boss finishes the call and cancels the order on the computer, there are already five XL pepperoni pizzas in the oven. So we got free dinner for everyone working that night as well as another message in the group chat app simply saying "in regards to my last message, please just use good judgement when taking orders"

Hilarious Zoom Meeting Fails (22 Tweets)

Zoom meetings are inspiring all kinds of cringe and spontaneous fails. The realm of the Zoom meeting can be a tricky one to navigate. Not everyone understands how it works, and through that wonderful confusion, we get some comedy gems when attempts turned into failures. We’re still not over that time that a boss turned herself into a potato during a meeting, and couldn’t turn herself back. Now that is beautiful.

Incompetent Production Manager Signs Off On His Own Fail

This incompetent production manager served himself up a slice of humble pie. Sounds like the dude’s carelessness had persisted to such a point that a reality check was inevitably headed his way. A wakeup call, if you will. And oh boy, did he get one. The look on the dude’s face when he realized that he’d literally signed off on his own humiliation must’ve been one for the books.

Guy Who Didn’t Work at Walmart Fired by Walmart Manager

This random dude wearing a blue shirt had a run-in with a manager who was eager to fire someone she didn’t even recognize. This one’s kind of the opposite of this chef who was hired by a law firm just to foil the security guard. Employees of huge retail chains have to put up with some strange problems at work, like this guy who got hired and through a series of mistakes, never did anything but still stayed employed for months

A Really Poorly Timed Batch of Retail Memes

With so many retail businesses closing and laying off workers, some of the only retail jobs left right now are work in grocery stores. So this does seem like a weird time for these. With that said, retail and customer service memes are relatable to literally anyone who has ever worked retail ever in there life, so cosmically, it makes sense.
