Dishwasher Invokes Minor Law to Make Lazy Manager Do Her Part

Being understaffed and having a manager who refuses to do any extra work is a recipe for a bad day. When this employee was told they had to stay late just because their manager wasn't willing to help, they pulled a classic reverse Uno card move. There are a surprising amount of bad bosses out there, like this incompetent manager who threw away 40 computers. or this boss who told a guy to guard a spill.

    Text - r/MaliciousCompliance Posted by u/wss1252 19 hours ago Manager wouldn't help when short staffed. Had to do the work herself at the end of the night. ос s When I was in high school I had a part time job working at a local restaurant. One day I came in and was scheduled to wash dishes, no big deal. I walked into the back and came to find out that the morning shift did not have a dish washer therefore there was a mountain of dishes. No bueno. On top of all of that, we got slammed that night

    Text - As a minor, I was required to take a 30 minute break in order to work my full shift (4-10pm I believe). As I clocked out for my break I asked my manager if she could have someone cover my position while I was on break to prevent an even worse situation than was already at hand. She responded 'Won't be able to. You'll just have to stay late and finish it' An important thing to keep in mind is that this manager was notoriously lazy and unhelpful. She never lended a helping had to get things

    Text - Since I was a minor, not only did I have to take a 30 minute break, I also could not work past 11pm on school nights. So after clocking back in from my break, I resumed washing the mountain of dishes that had accumulated. I took my time and didn't rush to get everything cleaned, but also wasn't going extremely slow on purpose. 10:59 rolls around and I walk into the office to tell her that I am leaving. She asked 'got everything done? 'Nope!' I said. It's a Wednesday night. Can't work past

    Text - riddus Score hidden 18 hours ago Here's a secret to being a successful and respected manager- Your staff is not there to serve YOU, rather you are there to support the staff. Person can't make it to work on time- you help them arrange a ride or pick them up yourself. Person can't do the job correctly- you train them yourself. Work in the outdoors-you go on runs for cold drinks or hand warmers You lead by service and example and anyone who would tell you differently isn't doing it right. N
