Some bosses have such low self esteem that they need to push their workers to see their ‘worth’, and you know what happens when people try too hard… they get the opposite results they would expect. That is exactly the case for this young micromanager who OP literally called ‘Babyboss’ in their post. The OP was very valued by their company because they had specialized education, and a deep understanding of a certain subject that was not disclosed in the post. I assume the subject of the work was a delicate matter, as OP basically worked 24/7… certain things were very time sensitive.
OP was happy to oblige when their boss began demanding that they be filled in on any and everything… down to the very last detail. While other people might have gotten angry, OP saw it as an opportunity, and boy did they take the opportunity… to find out exactly what this malicious compliance entailed, scroll down a bit for the full story.
Then, after you are done reading this, you can check out this employee who also maliciously complied with a manager at the car dealership they worked at, resulting in a lot of headache. After all, isn’t justice just such a fun read? Rarely do you come across justice so sweet.
