An excellent example of the saying ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’ is the business world. Even while everything appears ideal from the outside, things aren’t always bright and sunny on the inside.
The story that follows is from a resentful employee who has to commute every single day between the main office and his secondary office. Everything was going great, and OP was doing rather well despite spending long hours on the road; however, when a new bookkeeper joined the company, everything took a sharp turn for the worse. The company’s new bookkeeper was adamant about cutting costs and making the most use of their resources. Upon reviewing OP’s spending report, the newly hired bookkeeper determined that forcing OP to take the longer route—which makes a lot of sense in theory but necessitates many tolls in practice—would be the best method to prevent the company from going bankrupt.
So, check out the story below to learn the specifics of what happened and how the bookkeeper’s petty behavior ended up costing the business a lot of money! After you’re done, check out another satisfying story about an IT employee who gets his manager fired after finding a bug in the system!
