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.

Fresh Tweets For The Desperately Bored

If you’re anything like us, you may be finding yourself extremely bored this weekend. For some reason, even when we’re trying to binge watch, the urge to stare at our phone is too great to resist.

They’ve got it all: wholesome Steve Irwin mentions, sad quarantine anecdotes, and “old people” lamenting the joys of aging in the modern world. And if you need more? We’ve got you covered.

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.

Text - r/MaliciousCompliance JOIN u/Mango123456 • 2y Restaurant employee amuses himself, delights me and my kids Yesterday I decided to take my kids to an international chain restaurant. 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?"

3.

Text - Without turning around, the boss says "a fucking bowl, what do you think?" "Ya, but what size of bowl?" 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.

They then moved to another bigger site, totally understandable. The new manager was an absolute tool. I went on a course to gain a new qualification and for such I took holiday. Whilst on the course (that I took holiday for) he called me up at 7pm informing me that

Text - A few weeks later I was in a car accident that wasn't my fault and was off work for a week recovering as I had injuries from it and also no courtesy car so I couldn't drive the hour to work. He rang me up threatening to fire me as I wasn't going to hit targets even though i couldn't physically get to work. He demanded me best friend bring me to work immediately. I declined. He put me on a warning for not hitting that months target which he can 'technically' do.

Knowing we couldn't do this, when they came in to sign up I did it the correct way and set up a direct debit and made them pay which they seemed to have no problem with. My manager caught wind of this and then changed all of the bank details on each of the corporate members account to my bank account. He told me after

Text - Low and behold he conveniently forgot. (I suspected that this was to keep monthly revenue up as since he'd came it had severely dropped in all areas) £500 came out of my account and I got charged overdraft too. He said he'd refund it when it came to the end of the month for revenue figures (not too sure) I gave him 1 more chance. Another £500 went out of my account. With more overdraft charges.I proceeded to hand my notice in.

6.

Text - I went to the bank gathered all my evidence and a note from a solicitor saying that we would be pressing charges if he didn't refund me. I marched into the office and presented all my evidence. Fortunately his boss was in the office that day. Along with the note that he signed earlier and all my evidence his boss agreed to refund £1500. The overdraft charges had added a £250 each time. His boss was furious. Alongside the lost revenue that was the new managers fault and the now £1500 the c

So in some areas, these fish have completely destroyed the local water ecology because, like other invasive land species, they were never meant to be there.

Text - Savgrod96 • 2h Hi. I'm not in HR but my mom has been for quite a while. A few years ago when my mom worked at an automotive plant, my mom had an issue with an employee who would clock in on time and then dissapear. She asked another of the floor employees if they had seen him and was told "he's in the parking lot." So, my mom and one of her co-workers went out to the parking lot and found the employee asleep in his car. Apparently, he'd been clocking in and immediately going out to his ca

AskReddit Thread: Red Flags When Looking For Jobs

Someone got an AskReddit thread going about the red flags to keep a watchful eye out for while job hunting. Taking note of these might come in handy next time you find yourself looking for a new job, and don’t want to end up in a difficult situation that could’ve been avoidable from the get go, if you but knew what to steer clear of from the start.

Text - Sttommyboy • 6h This was a red flag I had during an interview process once. I was doing a phone interview for an IT position and the person I was interviewing with basically changed the details of the job during the interview. Instead of the first shift hours the position promised, he immediately went into saying it would be 6+ months before the opportunity for first shift would even be a possibility. Also, he was big into asking how dedicated I was to jobs. The idea of weekend shifts (ag

Text - insane_knight• 7h Couple of things. Open interviews Admittedly l've fallen for this a few times but I was young and stupid. It's clear they have a high turn over so they're trying to secure as many people as they can. Most of the time these open interview jobs don't have salaries, just commission. Refusal or reluctancy to share details over the phone This is what usually ends up in you turning up to an open interview. If they withhold information about the role (what you'll be doing etc.)

Try to schedule your in person interview as late in the afternoon as possible, relevant to your position. If you're expecting a 9-5 job, schedule your interview for 4:00 or 4:30. You probably discussed after hours work etc during the interview, when you are done, you should be able to look around - are people still working? Is the parking lot empty? You can match up the evidence with wh

Text - theassholeofalabama • 7h A employer who treats you like they are doing you a favor. With good servant leadership it should be the other way around. An unclear job description, or a job description that includes too many duties. Not being offered the opportunity to see the working areas or talk to people who would be your peers. Just generally trying to feel out whether or not they have things under control or not. I don't want to walk into a shit show.

I've had job interviews where the whole company gave me a weird vibe - lots of psychology questions like "do you like to be in control?" while sitting in an office building with zero privacy - all of the offices had glass walls, so everyone could see everyone else.

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.
