Strictly enforcing the rules is one way to get a rowdy crew under control, but there should always be room for wiggle room and exceptions. Rather than immediately dismissing an employee for being 22 seconds late, the manager should have considered making an exception. It’s hard to believe, but some managers actually do treat their staff this way (a good portion of them too.)

An employee, u/ChiefSteward, posted a thread to the r/maliciouscompliance forum on Reddit, detailing the deliciously malicious compliance with which they dealt with the situation. Read on for a complete story summary, complete with reader comments.
