r/Maliciouscompliance My Boss Fired Me, Then Nearly Went Out of Business!

r/Maliciouscompliance Here's a general tip for you: if you plan on firing an employee, make sure that your entire business doesn't depend on that employee to function. That's exactly what happened to OP in today's story! OP is the only person who manages a massive warehouse of tires. So when his idiot manager fires him, they suddenly don't have a clue where anything is and their business struggles without him. A few months later, they beg OP to come back!

  • had some of these at my internship aswel. I went to an intern at an company that basically books conference rooms for clients. So my job was basically check what they wanted and just do it, the person that was suppose to help me was either sick or not doing much, leaving his intern to do the bulk of the work (shocking right?) I did everything from setting up the the formation of the tables/chairs to setting up the electronics they required, nothing too special honestly. I graduated from administration level 2 (we call that here in Netherlands) and I was leaving that intern place, i told my former mentor how i did things, obviously he didn't listen and his next intern wasn't as proactive as i could be, so he needed to actually mentor the new guy. Later on some employees there reached out to me asking me to help my former mentor out because nothing was getting done, he still had his lazy attitute and the new intern was following his lead but behind his back. (I had some lazy streaks aswell, but i made sure my work was done before, so an hour job took me 45 minutes? 15 minute break basically, or till i got bored) The mentor was basically taken in as he was the friend of the boss, so basically complete immunity to anything. He was fired 2 months later for 3 reasons. 1. he was lazy and only sat on his office. 2. work wasn't getting done (so I had an 2 year internship there, which basically allowed him to breeze through his shifts) and 3. the company was getting an negative reputation because the rooms/equipments were never setup for them, so they went elsewhere for the same service and the schools that wanted people to get work experience black listed that company.

  • "The world wants to be organized." I think you'll find that the world wants to be disorganized and run by its own rules. We humans however, love arranging things so that our brains can make sense of them. Clearly not everyone is good at it, and run on nature's order. It just sucks when our time-based world demands we find things and chaos prevents it.

  • I'm an amazing organizer, but I seriously have zero drive. I just came from being an alcoholic, and I don't home any responsibilities as I should at my age in my situation. But whenever my girlfriend guides me to doing something that has to do with organizing, my ADHD goes into full mode and all of the sudden I become OCD about it and organize every little detail. I'm still very behind on a lot of things though, because again, zero drive.

We are also the only ones that can find stuff too. It drives Mom crazy, but she is no better if not worse so it feels hypocritical.

We were (they still are) in construction and me and my dad are 99% of the time on the same page, typically different lines at worst, and my grandfather, though he means well and definitely knows what he's talking about (he was in the electric workers union for i think 65 years last i heard) but he's starting to get a little "let's change it up"/"let's see if this works" mid-job to an extreme level. A little bit is ok, especially if it could be faster, but the he does it, sometimes we'd have to scrap what we already did entirely.

  • Both I and my husband are half-decent, half-lazy organizers, so we kinda fit in terms of the amount of energy put into organization. The real problem is we have completely different systems! I don't know why, but we always want to start in different places, and the end result is hardly ever the same, despite we being very logical about our systems. After eight years living together, we came upon a silent agreement where each organizes their own part of the house. He cooks, so the kitchen is his. I clean, so the laundry is mine. The bedroom and social areas are divided into smaller personal areas (like bookshelves, desks, etc). It's weird, the house feels a bit patchworky, but it works.

  • I'm not anti-orginization, but my mum is very orginization. Very "Knows where everything is". But there is a running joke with me and my mum about the flat these days. She's major arthritis and a few other mobility related problems, so her moving and carrying ability is harshly limited. And my brother is a fuck up who'll only help you out for what he can steal. So, the flat was massively cluttered in every room (Different story entirely, only half our fault) and people were coming to check the electrics. So, this whole flat's worth of clutter needed moving, by me alone with a little help from mum. So I moved it. If there was a space, things got put there, if it was useless or broken, it got thrown away. If there was a bag, it got filled. My room has this wall of crap up to the celling now. The joke being that before, Mum knew where everything was just couldn't get to anything. And now, Mum knows where nothing is, but can get to it all.

Also it's not always better because when they organize stuff my brain doesn't work the same so I can never find stuff. Heck, when I actually organize stuff I can't find it either tbf. I have a way easier time finding what I need in what most people would see as utter chaos.

  • I really wish you'd just read the thing word for word. I get avoiding copyright if you need to. But if these are free to use stories, just read it out if the sentence is decent. Sometimes you make the poster sound worst than they are "I won't deny some of the things he did got me pissed off" is what you said. Vs what was said which was "I won't deny, I got pretty upset with a few things from him. But it was just the situation didn't favour him" You make the poster sound sometimes sound like they are really ragging on the other when they aren't and unless some one is reading the video, not just listening like a podcast.

  • I am somehow an organized disaster. My office looks like a bomb has gone off in it all the time. BUT... I always know where everything is and can go right for it. My GF on the other hand can't stand clutter (that isn't her own), but in cleaning, forgets where she puts things. An example of it is that I had to go to a job that was in a city about 6-7 hours drive away for 3 weeks. One evening when talking to her on the phone, she asked where a specific set of headphones were that she wanted to use. I told her exactly where it was in my office and she found it no issue. Then when she off handedly said "I wish I knew where my hair brush was that easy" told her it was last on her night stand next to the bed under the paper she was reading the night before I left. Sure enough, that's where it was. I just log everything away in some dumb (mostly) useless part of my head and recall stuff in the dumbest way, but it works for me.

  • When my small Army medical library was being renovated, my supervisor sent two soldiers to help me pack. After the first bout of packing, they complained about how particular I was about the books and journals being boxed in a certain order. My boss sent me a snippy email about wasting her soldiers' time. I carefully explained how, by keeping everything in a certain order, we would save a lot of time unpacking because we wouldn't be hunting for issues or books. We would be able to grab them by the handful (in order), and slot them into place. The soldiers followed my instructions after that.

  • I don't have reddit but I do have the perfect story for this kind of stuff. I used to work with my dad at a huge company and because I didn't have the certifications that my dad had, they labeled my job title building maintenance, which was decently appropriate for what I was doing. I was basically changing light bulbs repairing vent ducts and taking care of the yard and the security fence around the property. I was basically the handyman around the entire property by myself. Now this wasn't a bad job, I was only getting paid $10 an hour and was told to do a lot of things that were way out of my expertise as far as concrete handling when I had to redo the entire parking lot and take care of the actual parking lot with only a sludge hammer by myself. But side notes aside that wasn't the problem. I was technically at the bottom of the food chain of anyone else that was there. But I was instructed by the shop foreman of this place to only listen to my direct manager, however that shop foreman constantly would tell me to do other stuff all the time so that was to managers and then at one point it got to four managers. The office manager the shop foreman my direct manager and the vice shop foreman. So despite the biggest manager always telling me to only listen to the manager that was just above me I would constantly be taking in orders from all four of those managers. It didn't do well for progress that actually needed to be done around the place and a really slowed the progress that actually needed to be done. Every manager wanted their own little issues in their department done first and I couldn't really help that because I was only one person in charge of my own department. Eventually I got fired because I just couldn't keep up with four different directories coming in every day all at once all claiming to be top priority. After I was terminated my dad worked there for a while longer and he told me that the person they got to fill in my position was 3 years younger than me and a real slacker, long story short they didn't last long and I always got calls from friends inside that business both in the mechanic department as well as the office department begging me to come back because no one else would do the job quite as well. I told every single one of them no I wouldn't do it without a formal apology from the shop foreman and an explanation about how he would not do that to me again and that I would get a little bit better pay. I never got it because that guy's pride was too much but it was still quite a welcoming thought to know that they had no one to cover me.

  • I once filled in as a secretary during a maternity leave. When the secretary decided to not return, the company hired an "Executive" secretary to replace her. They preferred not to keep me in the position, as they wanted a "professionally trained" secretary. Not only was she paid almost 50% more than me, I had to teach her how to do the work. The company went out of business shortly thereafter, and I think that this instance was only one of many poor business decisions that lead to its closing.

When Sam the company head died his son rather then take up a job and get off the vacation his life was decided to instead Higher a management firm to oversee Walmart as a whole, was a train wreck for the company. was working for them during transition and had a ASE Certification in Engine Performance and Maintenance and so did several others I worked with, Slowly at first but quicker later, they were replaced with First job no training kinda guys whos attitude was, "its just a oil change it ain't that hard." and killed several engines. Simple way a Oil and lube shop can kill your engine is to not remove the seal from your engine that sticks from the previous seal. Two seals allow oil to POUR between them, draining your car of all its oil in one minute flat. Cars, Trucks, jeeps, and SUV's with not oil in the engine will seize after a second Minute. easily a couple THOUSAND to fix, but easier to get a new car. guess how many repairs they had to pay for in the first couple months as after I left?

  • I'm literally in the middle of what feels like the most complicated move possible. Due to health issues, I've been living with my parents for a few years (I'm in my 30s). I'm greatly appreciative of everything they've done for me - & there's a LOT. But... My mum & I are both type A, super-organised, & perfectly suited for those T-shirts that say: I'm not bossy, I have leadership skills. Two type As, with _different_ ideas & systems is NOT fun. I have had to learn & accept some, erm, 'flexibility' due to my health issues, which have improved/ stabilised but left me with some chronic issues. **I'm** moving from the US home to Europe after the summer. My parents are too... in 9 months. For various reasons, they're (we're) spending a few months in this area (northeast) while my dad finishes his contract with work, then **they're** going to stay with relatives in Florida for a few months for winter. All the stuff shipped internationally will be stored for the 9(ish) months due to customs laws at home (owner must claim, sign, declare etc. & for other complex reasons this can't be me). Unexpectedly, our landlord of 5+ years, who KNEW this plan since last year decided - in a horrible way - to end the contract & gave notice. Details aren't worth it, but it was stressful & unnecessary. A conversation would have been the sane option. Even if anything had been agreed, by the end of a crazy 4 weeks, we wanted nothing to do with them. New plan: rent somewhere furnished for a few months - hence the longer storage period. Except I'll _need_ more of my stuff when I leave, so we're doing 1 in-state move, I'm doing a 2-part international move, they're then moving out of state (but don't need furniture etc) & then they're doing the international move. Oh, all planned & executed in about 6 weeks. Selling, donating, decluttering, all planning for different situations & places - also against the unknown background of a f*cking global pandemic. Packers & movers this week... this comment is now just a vent!! NEVER DO THIS. NEVER EVER EVER On top of that, I'm still finishing up some treatments & my body is NOT anywhere close to my brain's type A planning & organization. And my mum's idea of helping is: my way is best, just let me do it. Well-intentioned, but it's MY STUFF & MY LIFE - & I'm not able to do it the way I want. This has just helped me understand how the rest of my family DO just let her take over. She's better at it than them, & they don't feel the need to control it all with _their_ system. MNthe therapy. Back to my sorting my crap - & seriously working on a minimalist lifestyle change from here out!!

  • One of the best things I have seen on this subreddit is a comment that’s states “When your employees state that you shouldn’t do such and such it’s usually a good idea to listen to them When your employees state that you make it an official order you’ve f***** up When they demand you have it written down and signed your about to have the wrath of hell brought down upon you by your superiors “

  • New rule, everytime someone uses "OCD" to mean "neat and organized", they owe me $500 and also I get to punch them in the face

    • @Ish no judgement lol, there's a lot of misinformation about OCD around, I've met grown ass adults who think that, it's completely understandable you'd think that as a 12 hr old lol I missed out on a diagnosis for years bc that's what I thought it was too lol

    • When I was 12 I used to think I had OCD cuz I needed everything to be in a specific order and I hated it otherwise but I’m not much like that anymore so I could’ve misunderstood so please don’t punch me 😂

  • Okay I get that you don't always follow the original post entirely, but in the story with the tires you really went over the top. I'm trying to read along here! And most of the time there was no reason to change it either.

  • As a sysadmin that first story seems very far fetched. Credentials are managed (very often through Active Directory) and building new machine does not take a week and even if it did somehow (very few places I know of have no backup machines) then it would still refuse the credentials if they were blocked as a result of some security update policy. Most likely the device was refused by kerberos or radius which would be simply went around by using local admin account (every self-respecting admin will have that set up) and then deploying the update. Then the machine would be allowed to enter the network again. That takes like an hour tops. The poster was able to share computers so his credentials were fine, it was the mavhine that was prohibited from entering. At that point just reinstall it. Takes at most 3 hours with a good setup with WDS (and if they have uodate audit they need to have a WSUS so they most likely have a WDS) and it is mostly unattended effort. And Macs/Linux machines would still operate on very similar backbone (kerberos/radius allowing or blocking devices to join the network) so that argument would not fly either.

  • These stories remind me of the time, a few months after I moved out of my parents' home, when they called to "invite me to dinner," and then let slip, while they were still on the phone with me, that the real reason they were inviting me was because they wanted to watch "The Count of Monte Cristo," and couldn't find it. So, after I stopped laughing, I calmly told them exactly where to look, and they found it right away. They then sheepishly asked if I still wanted to come for dinner that night. "You can watch it with us, if you like. We'll wait for you." I laughed and told them to go ahead and watch it without me, as I still has a lot of stuff to do for work. But I had such a good laugh about it. We did have dinner together later that week. My parents actually do love me, for me. But, boy, sometimes, you just want a particular thing, and nothing else will scratch that itch.
