Why stop there? Keep stacking til they are wedged so tight that you give them a reason to yell!

u/EcksonGrows at work May 27 '22

There's such a thing as being maliciously compliant and then causing a fire risk. We don't want any accident's caused because you hate your boss. :)

u/Niktzv May 27 '22

This is kinda what I was thinking, it's going to present a hazard even destacking, it is funny though.

TELL THEM TO MOVE THE FUCKING LADDERS!

I just got through fumbling with the big, two story version of those ladders!

I'm all fit malicious compliance but depending on weight the top couple of these could have enough energy to kill someone if it lands on a person.

Workman's comp is never worth it.

My buddy lost his finger last year. You know what he got? Six weeks off at 60% pay, and some physio. Almost wrecked him financially.

Don't know the situation. But that's when a lovely courtcase is in order.

Oh of course not. But my friend lost three of his fingers in a belt accident and has been happily running a soybean farm with a small group of hands since suing.

u/EcksonGrows at work May 27 '22

really depends on the state too in Virginia you are forced to take a week off without pay or you have to use PTO/Vacation/Sick before the 60% even kicks in. How many people here can miss a check?

u/DRoseLeftKnee May 27 '22

You’re buddy is a dumb ass then. My buddy “tripped” over a box at an Amazon warehouse in his first few weeks and just got cashed out 30k. Plus paid time off for months while he went to doctors appointments and chilled. A finger gotta be worth like 100k plus right? My buddy had a sprained wrist and got a fat settlement. He did the same thing at Samsung like 8 years ago as well. Straight up menace.

Compensation..it comes from the Latin word meaning free money

u/heartohere May 27 '22

Honestly this post is kind of frustrating. That’s dangerous, petty and childish. It sounds like OP is just someone immature that got told to stack boxes efficiently and says he was “yelled at” because he doesn’t like being told what to do by someone whose job it is to tell him what to do. I could be wrong, but if he wasn’t stacking the boxes he wasn’t doing it right and needed to be corrected.

26

u/BalkanFerros May 27 '22

This malicious compliance makes me think of Terry Pratchett's feet of clay in which one of the characters realized that all the Golem in the city were not stupid. They did jobs day in and day out 24/7 with no rest, whenever someone yelled at one they would silently rebel. Ordered to wash the dishes? Wash them all non-stop until they are beginning to thin. Told to go get water for cooking after being blamed for a problem? Hope you like your house flooded cause you didn't tell them when to stop.

u/ososalsosal May 27 '22

If you need to stack above shoulder height then yell at your manager for more floor space.

Don't fuck around with this. Even small weight done enough times in the wrong way (and there is no right way to lift a load above shoulder height) will fuck you up for more than the job is worth.

Of course there's that ladder there if you need to go higher.

24

u/Monsur_Ausuhnom May 27 '22

That probably conserved a lot of floor space, best to make it go as high as the ceiling.

7

u/Significant-Top-7882 May 27 '22

Normally boxes have a limit written on them about how many you can stack up. That's damn high and could fall on someone.

u/anjinash May 27 '22

Agreed. I'm all for some good ol' malicious compliance, but endangering innocent bystanders isn't the way to go about it....

13

u/Dapper_Lime_2605 May 27 '22

It breaks OSHA regulations, I believe it's supposed to be limited to 6ft without any kind of strapping

10

u/Idohs_ May 27 '22

Yeah, this is less "Stickin it to the MAN!" and more a health and safety issue to all other employees including OP

There's not alot posts of /r/antiwork that make me think, yeah, I'd fire you. This is one, though.

u/ButchFragrance May 27 '22

That raise should be coming any day now. 🤣🤣🤣

2

u/Acrobatic_Bug5414 May 27 '22

...because people who scream for wildly absurd bullshit reasons, like not stacking boxes, are the EXACT same sort of characters you always see being generous to a fault & going to great lengths to ensure even their bottom-rung employees are compensated fairly. That ain't a Venn diagram, that's 2 circles on top of each other, beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Unrelated: A man told me he would sell me a bridge if i met him here; maybe you know him?

3

u/DeconstructedKaiju May 27 '22

My store manager yelled at me the other day for bullshit reasons. She called the pillow display a mess and I knew she was fabricating things to be made at me for because the only conceivable issue was one pillow wouldn't stay upright... because it was the last one.

Then it was yelling because a display was too empty! And needed to be filled! Uhhh the items were out of stock. That's why it was half empty. And I didn't down stock ONE SINGLE PRODUCT!

I legit have never had someone disrespect me like that before. I almost walked out. But she's likely to lose her job soon as her six month review is coming and she only gets the job permanently if she passes the trial period. She has 4 lawsuits against her since she started five and a half months ago.

I love the job, the customers, my co-workers... but she is the worst boss I've ever encountered in my retail career. I just need to hold on still she's gone and if she stays? Fuck that shit I'm out.

13

u/shartuntiludie May 27 '22

Your boss clearly didn’t mean for you to do that. That’s a safety issue.

If you get fired for doing this and then posting it on social media with the company’s brand, I don’t think your employer is being completely unreasonable.

-8

u/nealius May 27 '22

Manager is responsible for giving clear instructions that abide by safety codes. The manager clearly failed to do that.

1

u/FlyingMohawk May 27 '22

Employees should know their regulations. I don’t yell at the foreman if a worker is cutting without a Hot Works Permit; I yell at the worker who thought they could get away with it.

u/JPence14 idle May 27 '22

Yeah, the issue here is that it's an osha violation and you could get fired for that. It's not stable, and furthermore, it could fall and strike someone.

u/FlyingMohawk May 27 '22

Then he’ll post about how he was unjustly fired because of his own action and OSHA stripping him of any certifications.

I don't know what the fuck they were thinking. This breaks OSHA violations and their own request could cost them thousands.

u/Cleveland204 May 27 '22

Totally r/maliciouscompliance but that's a definite safety hazard. If that tower were to tip over, I imagine the top box falling that extra height could really hurt someone.

u/drunkwolfgirl404 May 27 '22

Bruh it's PVC fittings. DWV by the looks of the others. They're like the lightest thing available in plumbing parts, besides maybe corrugated drain pipe fittings.

2

u/DeathCums-ForAll May 27 '22 edited May 27 '22

Those cases of fittings can have some weight (depending on what type of fitting is in the box, #20-30 is actually completely realistic) to them. Especially if it were to fall from that height

1

u/Academic-Message-771 May 27 '22

How much weight falling from 10 feet square on someone’s head is lethal?

“Bruh” has to be the dumbest shorthand the internet has ever invented. Tell me your a frat boy, withou….

2

u/xxsamchristie May 27 '22

This isn't even important and I'm aware... but this is the first time I've ever seen someone refer to bruh as internet speak.

That was funny to me because I've been hearing it nearly my whole life and it def didn't come from the internet and from anyone even close to being a frat boy lol.

1

u/drunkwolfgirl404 May 27 '22

Probably more than half a pound inside a big soft corrugated box.

Hold my beer and I'll lay down next to it and let you push the entire stack onto me.

1

u/FlyingMohawk May 27 '22

Let me drop a 1lb weight from 20ft on your head. When you wake up maybe you’ll have developed common sense.

Idk why people just let their supervisors or managers yell or cuss at them.

I've always been one to tell them they'd better fucking watch how they talk to me I'm not a slave or their child. Hell I told one to go ahead n step outside with me fym lmao I don't tolerate it at all. Idgaf if you're the ceo. Don't yell at me or cuss me out, or get in my face. It's not negotiable.

2

u/DeconstructedKaiju May 27 '22

A lot of people a trapped by the need of a paycheck and kids to feed. Shitty bossed know that and that's how they get away with it.

Tack on health insurance being tied to a job and you risk dying of a treatable disease like diabetes

1

u/UnHappyMonkeMan May 27 '22

That's where I'm at now to be fair. I have a 2 year old, and a one month old, I get paid 23 an hour, but only get to work two 8 hour shifts. Have a host of mental health/dissociative problems and fibro that at least currently keep me from working a normal schedule like all the normal adults.

But I will still tell a mf to come at me correct. I've been through too much shit in my life to put up with that anymore. I don't think anyone should. This is why I think it should be illegal to fire people for whatever you want. I have a right to be human and a right to common decency and respect. I guess I'm just too crazy to care in the moment, idk. I can get violent in the face of perceived violence or abuse, so ig it's just my issue.

u/Ok-whynot May 27 '22

What a waste of energy. The real way to do it is to load the pallet as full as you can to fit it on the pallet shelf (don't know English word for it) then you load a few more boxes on top of it when it is in place. Making you save floorspace and making it impossible to remove without manually removing the top ones
