Boss Throws Out Employee's Custom Chair For Not Being 'Health and Safety Compliant,' Winds Up Having to Buy an Entire Brand New State of the Art Work Station

If you're going to grill an employee for their custom chair not meeting health and safety regulations, you better make sure that the rest of the equipment you've provided them is up to snuff. For one nosey principle, her entitled micromanaging earned her the cost of an entirely new state-of-the-art workstation. 

Having fashioned a neat new chair from the seat "of my 2010 Jeep Wrangler," one teacher was quite happy with his setup. That is until his principal informed him it had to go on health and safety grounds. Providing him with a flimsy replacement chair, the teacher took his neat seat home and concocted a revenge plan. Informing HR of his situation, he asked them to conduct a complete inspection of his space. The result? Books, laptops, monitors, and even a desk that failed inspection. Upon HR's recommendation, the principal had no choice but to buy her teacher a brand-new state-of-the-art workspace. Now that's why I call malicious compliance karma. Although he didn't get to keep his chair, I'd call the teacher's situation a net win. Maybe the principal will learn to keep meaningless issues to herself next time.
