Jerk Boss Fires Only Worker Who Can Operate Special Machine to Cover for Dude Who Keeps Breaking It

Do you ever think about all the infrastructure that holds society together and wonder what Big Industry looks like behind the scenes? Turns out every trade has its idiots who somehow got to run the show and hire their idiot friends and relatives to do dangerous and critical jobs. According to one redditor’s lengthy (and captivating) tale of malicious compliance, the energy sector is no exception. I don’t know who needs to hear this, but you probably shouldn’t fire the only person who knows how to operate a special machine critical to the functioning of the business as a whole just to save the dumbass who keeps breaking said machine.
