Toplist Points 3165 == Toplist Rank [50.000+ (bad)]
I work as an administrative assistant at a major sporting goods retailer. Part of my job is to track attendance and regularly upload a report to corporate.
My store manager just recently (in the last 2 years) got hired by our district manager who she has been friends with for years. They managed to push out the old store manager who had the store running like a ticking clock. Ever since then, it has become abundantly clear that she has no idea how to run the store, and we have all suffered for it. She constantly screws up the store schedule, bullies employees she doesn’t like, and has hired incompeted friends to management positions. We all dislike her and think she should be fired, but it seems like everything she does in the store makes us look bad while making her look good, until recently.

My manager made me fire almost all of her most important employees
Where I come from (Australia) each state has a volunteer emergency service (State Emergency Service), think of a CERT, but bigger with better funding and does more things. One of our roles is in Storm response, basically going around and conducting temporary repairs to structures to allow them to be lived in while more permanent repairs are arranged through insurance. Members of the public call up a number, a request for assistance is entered into the computer, the priority of the job is assessed and eventually a team of volunteers goes out to the job. Depending on the priority of the job, this can take time (we get all the priority 1 jobs first, then priority 2 etc).

I don't care, F*** off....well, if you insist.
As in my previous post this is about working at events such as gigs etc. but when I was a supervisor/manager for an event security firm in the UK. I was chatting to a few of my old work mates and they reminded of this one.
Our firm often hired us out as sub-contracted staff for some events and so we were working the Ricky Hatton vs Kostya Tosyu world title fight for another firm, who were paying quite a high hourly rate for the privilege of having all SIA Door Supervisor staff (bouncers).

In my final year of O-Levels (British education system), I had a Maths teacher called Karen. She knew Math, however, she was horrible at teaching and was a real vindictive bitch who projected her issues with 16 years olds with any one who could be made a target.
I was a particular target of hers, as I was good at math myself, and used to help out my classmates since Karen barely taught anything. She would pass snarky remarks about how I was a know it all, and on more than a few occasions threw me out of the class for correcting her (when she was clearly wrong). In order to ensure we were prepared for the exam, my classmates and I also used to approach another teacher, Dave, who happily guided us through any issues during lunch recess.

No one will get a top grade.. Sure
Not sure if this counts as malicious compliance, since I didn’t really have malicious intent at the time. I’m posting this here, and if there’s a more appropriate subreddit, please let me know.
Context: I went to a very small school during most of my elementary and middle school years. I’m talking insanely small. It was for kindergarten through 8th grade, but there were only about 20 students every year. The building itself was small too; there were only three classrooms, one for K-4, one for 5-8, and one for the music class. As a result, the very few teachers we had knew all the students very well. This is kinda important for later. Now, on to the story.

I did exactly what the bullies said and avoided trouble because of it.
I used to work as a server in college years ago. I happened to be pregnant at one time while waiting tables. Have you ever served while hugely pregnant? It’s exhausting and your back and feet hurt all the time! But, it’s good money so I just kept serving until I had my baby.
