Bosses everywhere are usually not the ideal option we have been hoping for, but this is nothing that you could change or replace. Instead, you cope with it and hope for the best.
It seems that there are lucky people who have awesome bosses and have zero issues with them, but this sounds more like an exception. The list below shows how one person decided to do something about their boss who was nothing but useless.
Thanks to some careful automation work done in response to the said boss’ request, the position of this boss was no longer needed and this is what makes the story an exceptional one. We are thankful that places such as Reddit exist.
This is the kind of place where you will find such incredible stories. People share all kinds of stuff, and we like reading such episodes.
You can read the whole discussion on Reddit.
And here is what people think:
1. The story
This is the beginning of the story. The employee went through the boss’ job occupation and duties, revealing that the position was nothing but a waste of company funds, not to mention the boss took her time to do whatever she pleased.
2. The CEO
The CEO of the company was the type of person to try and reduce costs, meaning that he would not tolerate extra expenses that were generated by a person who did next to nothing, despite being a manager.
3. The report
Here is how it all started. The employee managed to create a script that did the same thing that it took the boss days to complete. No wonder the CEO was impressed by this effort.
4. The office
It is true that a wise CEO would always know everything about their employees, which was the case here. As soon as he was able to enjoy the automated reporting tools, the former boss (or manager) was no longer needed there.
5. The short version
Here is how the whole story could be described by only a single sentence. The employee simply followed the boss’ instructions, and it resulted in getting the boss suspended and later fired, which was something you could call karma.
6. The script
It seems that this whole story can be used a leverage by people who have horrible bosses that want too much of them. It also appears that a single script can replace a person’s position in the company, and that is a scary thought, to be honest.
7. The good news
Well, this is one great way to have fun with this situation, and we get the witty humor used here. In reality, these two people that got fired had to know better that their relationship and uselessness were visible to everyone.
8. The secretary
It appears that many people are also in the position where they could be easily replaced, but they often act as if they are not to be bothered by anyone for anything. These people soon or later get fired, and for good reasons, too.
9. The best part
It seems that a rational CEO would always find the best way to tolerate someone who saved them a ton of additional expenses. By automating these reports, the employee got a bonus for saving a lot of money for paychecks, annual leaves, and so on.
10. The tutorials.
It amazes us that some people think ahead of others in such impressive ways. Yes, we would all appreciate having such tutorials on our disposal, and we would always resort to such a valuable source of information.
11. The name
Here is one of the best comments on this thread, and we an all see why it is a brilliant one. There are people who would easily deny that karma exists, but it does, and we have seen it work like a charm.
12. The automation
There are many people out there who have the skills to automate their workflow and get more free time as a result. In this case, automation was taken to the next level, and it was used as a tool to give someone what they deserved.
13. The machine
We believe that some people would never believe that an algorithm can replace a person, and they have a point, to be honest. The basic functions are essential to have, but there are other things that you can only communicate with a live person about.
14. The compliance
It seems that some individuals are not going to admit that the employee was right for doing what they did, but this person decided to tell things as they happened. This is the truth, and it is also a position we can always agree with.
15. The CEO
Here is yet another thing that we thought about while we took the time to read the whole story. It seems that the CEO had way too much tolerance for what was going on in his own company. There are people who would have fired the two a lot sooner.
16. The task
This is not a post, but an analysis. It appears that some people are always willing to take their time and discuss something important the moment they see a reason to do so. We agree with this person, and yes, there are too many people who are like that.
17. The feeling
There are several opinions we saw under the thread that describe what happens. In this case, the person who decided to comment expressed an opinion we understand. It might not feel right, but it all depends on the circumstances.
18. The script
We believe that some people would do exactly what this user suggested, but we don’t think the employee who created the script made a mistake. Quite the contrary, they did exactly what they were asked to do – automate the process.
19. The job
This is an opinion that is slightly different from the rest on this list simply because it is dedicated to a topic that goes different route. We guess that it has a lot to do with it as well, but it is also something most people would agree with.
20. The sandbag
Here is one different view of the situation that we need to discuss. It seems that there is a possibility that the initial plan of this employee may end in a different way that is anything but beneficial to them. We hope things don’t end like that.
21. The things
We are certain that this is a scenario that many people have face, and it was surely not the outcome they hoped for. When things are too good to be true, they are probably not good at all, and we are certain that things should not be like that.
22. The manager
Some people never relied on someone to create their monthly reports, and this makes total sense. They have learned at an early stage in their careers that automation is the key when it comes to several reporting and managerial processes.
23. The genius
Some of the users who commented on this post have shared nothing but admiration. We understand that and we know that the majority of employees would have done the same thing, given the circumstances. This person simply wrote “nicely done”, and we agree.
24. The compliance
This is a post that makes sense, as it tries to pinpoint the difference between complying with someone’s expectations and doing the extra things that would result in their suspension. We guess that a line was crossed here.
25. The friend
We understand that some people have been down that route, but not the exact same one. This user shared their experience, and we think it’s very reliable to this topic.
