“I Have A Write-Up For You”: Supervisor Tries Discipline Driver For No Reason, Regrets It Supervisor

Work is more than just our direct responsibilities. Direct superiors and higher-ups have their own agendas and biases, and can sometimes complicate our day with unnecessary nonsense.

This rings especially true for Reddit user A-Truckers-Thoughts. Talking to the platform’s ‘Malicious Compliance‘ community, the employee recalled the unjust scrutiny they had faced from a difficult supervisor.

However, as the tension between them kept rising, the Redditor decided to give the lady a taste of her own medicine by subjecting her to unnecessary workload, just like she had been imposing on them.

Even otherwise good leaders can inadvertently create false urgency and damage their team’s morale, well-being, and performance

Far too many teams are buckling under deadlines and stress.

According to a recent survey of 10,243 full-time desk-based workers from six countries including, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, France, Germany, and Japan, 42% said they are burned out.

This might seem like a personal problem, but when Stanford researchers looked into how workplace stress affects health costs and mortality in the United States, they found that it led to spending of nearly $190 billion — roughly 8% of national healthcare outlays — and nearly 120,000 deaths each year.

If those numbers aren’t scary to the Redditor’s bosses, they should consider the fact that companies without systems to support the well-being of their workers have higher turnover, lower productivity, and higher healthcare costs, according to the American Psychological Association (APA).

So it’s in everyone’s best interest to create a healthy work environment, one without redundant responsibilities that add extra burden without generating any real value.

Which is, sadly, far too common.

A survey of 7,500 full-time employees by Gallup found the top five reasons for burnout are:

Unfair treatment at work;

Unmanageable workload;

Lack of role clarity;

Lack of communication and support from their manager;

Unreasonable time pressure.

Unmanageable workload can take a toll on us
