Oh my god This might be the longest story to emerge from the r/MaliciousCompliance subreddit of Reddit. It may also be one of the best-written pieces to ever emerge from the platform.
Reddit user u/Warrior044 gave a complex and in-depth tale of a time when their boss’ boss threatened to terminate them in this story. They had been employed by a big American firm with numerous foreign units situated abroad. In a lengthy introduction, u/Warrior044 explains how they were in charge of running a machine that was “immensely vital” to the facility’s operations, despite being very easy to operate. One unskilled person, who also happened to be buddies with the boss, was present on the team in charge of the machine, which was a distraction. Their negligence would set off a chain of events that would destroy the division as a whole. Check out this article for this dreadful story of an employee and how he handled the whole situation.
