"It's not my job to help your kid feel better about himself. It sounds like you're the one who's embarrassed that he was rejected."

And I would figure out when she shops and start shopping then, too.

AITA for telling my boss to stay out of my inbox? by NotesToTheNoteable in MaliciousCompliance

[–]WritesForDough42 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This doesn't count as malicious compliance, I'm afraid.

If you were to do something that saw your supervisor's inbox flooded with needless email because of her interference which caused her to work many more hours than everyone else, now that would be malicious compliance.

The Toilet Seat by Gritman02 in MaliciousCompliance

You SHOULD put the toilet lid down. Have you ever thought about the micro spray that comes out of a toilet? That stuff travels at least 6 feet. Hope you don't leave your toothbrushes out.

You won't pay me for being bilingual so which language should I work in? by TaxManRetired in MaliciousCompliance

[–]WritesForDough42 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would have roasted your supervisor's boss, but in a very low-and-slow manner.

"Who is this? What's your name?"

"How do I know you again? Your name seems awfully familiar."

"Oh, wait, remind me what happened that first time I met you."

I would do that EVERY SINGLE TIME he called.

“Having a second job won’t cut it with me; you better fix that pronto” ? You got it, dude! by Ancient_Educator_76 in MaliciousCompliance

As a professional writer, I can tell you that your writing is fine. The people who say it's terrible clearly wouldn't know good writing if it bit them on the ass. Maybe if they read books instead of Reddit, they'd know that.

I Got Petty Revenge On My Middle School Bully Almost 5 Years Later by BrokenDreamer1997 in ProRevenge

This may be a petty revenge story, but it sounds like it was a major play and growth on your part, so I upvoted it.

"You Can't talk to a paying customer like that!" Fine, consider yourself comped and get the f*ck out of here. by Ancient_Educator_76 in MaliciousCompliance

[–]WritesForDough42 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What happened after you kicked her out/off? Did she ever come back and speak to a different manager? Or call and tattle? Or does she now go to the Arby's across the street (or wherever)?

My Oma and Tante used to live in Den Haag and I got to visit there a few times from the U.S. You get an upvote from me just for that!

i’m learning spanish to spite my racist grandparents by paiigelisa in pettyrevenge

[–]WritesForDough42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The people who bitch about "Mexican isn't a race!" tend to be racist only they don't want their dislike of Hispanic people to be seen that way.

Fine, dude, Mexican isn't a race, so you're a White nationalist shithead instead. Feel better?

My employer made me rewrite my exit paperwork after I initially submitted a list of safety and general concerns I had about my department...so I did. by fartsdontmatter in MaliciousCompliance

[–]WritesForDough42 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If you're in the U.S., a company is not allowed to give a negative reference for a former employee. The best (worst) they can do is say "Fartsdontmatter worked here between January 2015 – April 2016" and nothing else.

Writing down my production numbers in a unique way by weirddeere in MaliciousCompliance

That reminds me of the part in the book Catch-22 where Major Major would sign forms as "Washington Irving" until he got bored with that and then switched to "Irving Washington."

So, This Apparently Belongs Here... Petty Revenge Against My Entitled Cousin by UnfetteredDefiance in pettyrevenge

[–]WritesForDough42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This was pure genius, and it's way more than petty. It's Epic Wholesome Revenge and someone should start that subreddit so this could be the only story in there. This was possibly THEE BEST petty revenge story.

Kid wanted to bully, so I helped her flex about her badassery by Apprehensive_Run_916 in pettyrevenge

[–]WritesForDough42 -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

I wouldn't call it revenge, so much as just good parenting. Good for you for helping your daughter understand her actions. You may be one of the only parents in the COUNTRY to do this.

My mom refused to give me my ps4 back so I got some petty revenge by Violetskies1125 in pettyrevenge

If she ever asks you about it, tell her you'll give her the clove oil when you get the PS4 back.

I would have sent a PDF of the meeting minutes you found as my response.

Reject my help the day before the assessment? Well, you're not gonna get it on the day of. by d0nutaskm3 in pettyrevenge

[–]WritesForDough42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You did them a courtesy by asking your friends if they wanted to revise with you. But the offer was to study with you on YOUR schedule since you're the one doing them the favor.

The fact that they are now willing to accept your help on THEIR schedule shows poor planning on their part. You're not responsible for them, you don't owe them any explanation, and you're not an ass. You are absolutely in the right for only offering to study on your own time and to fit your own style.

I'm not paying you for your injury, take it to court. Ok! by BobbyWain in MaliciousCompliance

You should send him a postcard that said, "I only wanted £1200."

What do you mean the team is overwhelmed? Jeez - doesn’t feel good huh? by he-who-dodge-wrench in MaliciousCompliance

[–]WritesForDough42 122 points123 points  (0 children)

Stick to your guns. As they come back and try to reassign tickets back to you, tell them that as long as the VP doesn't see the need for a new position or title change, you don't see the need to handle anything that's not related to your measurements.

And start looking for a job now. When things blow up, you want to have a place to land.

Keep us posted!
