This service tech is used to driving to jobs in different neighborhoods, but they weren’t prepared for this weather.
In any job, if your boss has your back, it makes your life a lot easier. However, many managers think that their employees are always trying to be sneaky or deceitful. They have no trust in their decision-making abilities…even though they presumably hired them for such qualities.
This person, u/EmuExternal6244, shared a story from a snowy day on the job. As a lead service tech, they usually drive out to 8-12 different homes per day, including jobs that “most of the other techs had no training to fix.” On this day, that meant trying to reach a home in a difficult area to reach. Much like how you can walk a cow up a flight of stairs but not down them, the OP was able to drive down the hill… and not back up to the top.
The OP told their excellent malicious compliance story, and then dropped into the comments to answer more questions about the tale (including details about their boss!). Then, these people told all about the the habits their neighbors have that drive them nuts, like one person who wrote that they let their dogs run free around the neighborhood.
