There must be a healthy balance between work and personal life.
People nowadays believe that life is all about work. And your company’s upper management probably wants you to think that way because we’re just numbers to them. All they care about are numbers that can make them money. We’ve all heard that balancing work and personal life is critical if you want to stay physically and mentally healthy, but who actually listens? What are we supposed to do when we are required to work on national holidays? It’s also not just about the Fourth of July. Employees are forced to take their work phones home and answer calls even late at night.
Despite this, most of the time they are not even paid for overtime. We are constantly told that hard work pays off and that if you keep working, you will be rewarded. However, it is usually the higher-ups who receive all of the bonuses, leaving you in the dust with a few cent changes to your hourly wage. That is why stories about managers getting what they deserve are always so satisfying. Especially if they were being brats and just wanted to call their employees in for a show of power on a holiday.
So read on to find out how this particular IT team decided to repay their manager’s kindness. You should grab some popcorn because this is going to be a fun ride.
The story is not as simple as it may seem from the title.
IT teams are usually the ones who get the raw end of the deal most of the time.
So this person tried to fix this issue.
But no matter what they tried, things were not going their way.
The CEO was busy so he could not be reached at all.
So they were forced into a position where they had to come to work.
Not only that but she also said some very rude things that most people would object to.
So a plan was hatched that would teach the manager a lesson.
They were allowed to have a party at the office and that is exactly what they decided to have.
The manager thought she had won with this argument.
But she could not see what was coming towards her.
Every employee on the IT team was supposed to come in.
But they also extended the invitation to family and friends.
And so the day came and the feast was glorious.
While people had expected a normal meal, this was something else.
They really did go crazy with food and everything else.
One of the managers also showed up with their family.
And they immediately know what was going on.
The revenge was in motion and it was going perfectly.
And when the weekend was over, the expense report was filed.
This was one heck of an expensive party.
And they had chosen the best and most expensive places they could find.
Everyone at the company was understandably flabbergasted by this expense.
And when the CEO came back, he was furious at the manager.
If only she had let the IT team work from home.
None of this would have happened in the first place.
Now we don’t know if she got fried but she get a good talking to.
