Entitled Boss Refuses to Let Worker Take Time Off for Honeymoon, Shoots Self in the Foot

Working 40 hours a week for years is nearly impossible without respect and reasonable benefits. Everyone who works deserves a reasonable amount of time off, especially for important life events, like getting married or having a child. When redditor u/WhoSc3w3dDaP00ch requested time off for their honeymoon nearly two months in advance, their deadbeat manager (who was notoriously bad at reading important emails) ignored the request for weeks before finally denying OP's time off. The boss said “re…

Greedy Landlord Tries To Exploit Tenant for Free Labor, Gets Owned Instead

Slumlords are exploitative by nature, and in this lucky redditor's case, not very smart. After u/nopanicprepper experienced a series of plumbing issues in their home, they notified their absentee landlord , who refused to pay for any repairs. Instead, the landlord “allowed” OP to do the repairs since OP was an engineer. (How generous.) OP maliciously complied, and to the landlord's horror, sent over a hefty invoice for parts and labor. Keep scrolling for the whole story.

Adult Children Maliciously Comply With Parents Demands From Their Childhoods, Hilarity Ensues

Have you ever been told, “when you live under my roof, you follow my rules”? It's one of the all-time classic lines parents use to mean “sit down and shut up.” Kids don't usually have the power to maliciously comply with their parent's wishes, at least without getting in trouble or being deemed a smart *ss. They typically just have to complicity bow to their parent's every wish. But when they grow up, they're able to give their mom and dad a taste of their own medicine

When redditor u/bear-mc showed up to work wearing totally normal khaki shorts due to the hot weather, their boss used it as an opportunity to reprimand them. The boss demanded that OP “follow the dress code to the book," and OP complied…maliciously.
