We love a condescending boss getting the rude awakening he deserves! This thread was posted to Reddit’s r/MaliciousCompliance subreddit by u/SadowSon, who shared a story about how their boss assumed onboarding a new staff member into the company’s system was an easy task.
Once again, here’s another case of a horrible boss having zero understanding of what those under him actually do and how much work it actually is. When the Redditor asked if they could take a few hours to onboard the new staff member, the boss refused to let the original poster “disappear” for that long and assumed writing a document detailing the process would be a much simpler solution. In fact, he thought that the document would only be half a page. The reality is he was way off. The document ended up being 34 pages long and took three days of the Redditor’s work time to complete. It’s pretty clear that the boss’s conception of what a waste of time would be was completely out-of-touch.
