I was told I had to get a Fit Test done for a half face respirator for my current job, which would mean saving off my rather substantial beard. I work in a nuclear power plant. If I need to wear PPE, 99% of the time it's a giant positive-pressure suit or Tyvex. I've worked there on and off for almost 4 years, and never once been in a situation where I need to wear a half face respirator.

This is a rule the boss handed down just to me, for reasons unknown; I absolutely must take the trash out to a particular dumpster (we have 2) even though it's the one that's most often overfilled & I also must take it out after dark instead of taking it out before sunset as I'd been doing for months. Boss man wouldn't hear my pointing out that I'm a small woman & our facility is open for any random people/wild animals to pass by. Our dumpsters are bear proof for a reason, but there's totally 1 single bright light out there now! So no complaining or get berated for another 20 minutes even though the light is pointed at the rear of the dumpster & the way it's positioned makes _me_ visible but hides anyone/anything that might approach. And my coworkers are not allowed to help me with it, one of the other women got told off for helping me one night last week when I was running behind, I didn't even ask her to! She was being nice! jfc man. I have a contract & a union so his threat to dock my pay/fire me for not adhering to this single rule is thankfully hollow, but very cruel & got his point across clearly. Hopefully the time change coming up will lighten things up out there, it's really not a safe thing to be doing.

Yes, in the u.s., it is illegal to tell your workers not to discuss their salaries with each other. My boss said it a few weeks ago, I said, "you know telling us we can't do that is illegal, right?" Fortunately, my boss is cool, and he DIDN'T know. He was just following company line. This shit comes from the top, spread awareness.

at my job, we have 2 unspoken rules (factory/custom shop.) 1:never wear any clothes your not prepared to get ruined. and 2: never bring anything your not prepared to get stolen. you would think working in a factory, that would be common sense. but you'd be amazed on how many people (mostly new hires) bring in shit that gets stolen and they try to sue someone or wear clothes that get dirty and then bitch for months saying that was their favourite shit and that they hate everyone for them getting it all full of sawdust or metal shavings.

This also baffles me. People working late and alot.. versus people who work exakt hours or even less than description. In the end, it matters little, it's the results that the employer pays for. But going home early on time seems to be a thing people frown upon.

Not necessarily a rule, but an expectation of one of my shift supervisors, which he got from my boss: don't ask the customers to aim in a certain direction while I'm out on the field picking up golf balls at the driving range. If I can't ask them to hit in a different direction, and I need to remain safe, and there are customers hitting, and I need to do my job - I can't go out on the field to do my work...

We had an anti-cell-phone policy at an agency I worked for that ran group homes for the intellectually disabled. Of course, we all used them for work -- GPS to find places we were supposed to transport clients to, mostly. But in one case we had a Type 1 diabetic client and the staff at that home would google carb counts for foods on our phones. Then they put freaking CAMERAS in all the houses so if you wanted to google a carb count you had to go into the bathroom so you didn't get caught. And no, we couldn't google it on the computer because they blocked all internet except email and the programs used for meds and documentation.

OMG I worked someplace where the boss freaked out if women lifted things! One co-worker and I were setting up some folding tables and Boss came in and said to let the guys do that. It became a running joke that women can't lift anything because it will make your uterus fall out. If Boss was out of the office the women would just behave normally, but if he might catch you, you'd poke your head in a male co-worker's office and say, "My uterus might fall out" to let him know that you needed for Boss to see HIM being the one to move something.

The working late thing also took me right back to Korea. Koreans don't value efficiency -- they value being busy. When the foreign teachers were attending government trainings, you could tell which ones traveled on their own and which were dropped off by Korean co-workers because the ones who came independently were all on time and the ones that were dropped off by Koreans were late. Being on time is a sign that you are not busy and are thus a bad worker. Of course, this means that Koreans will dawdle something awful in order to avoid being finished with work at quitting time. Interesting cultural moment: At one school where I was teaching (half foreign staff, half local Koreans), the blank lesson plans were kept near the administrator's desk at the farthest corner from the copy machine. I got tired of making so many pointless trips back and forth across the room that I asked the administrator (who, fortunately, had spent his teens and early 20s in the US so he understood the American obsession with efficiency) if we could just put the binders with the blank lesson plans next to the copier. He said sure. I later found out that the Korean teachers groused about how lazy the foreigners were that they couldn't bother walking back and forth. This led to a very interesting discussion!

Writing somebody's name in red ink is considered a death threat in Korea, and it's so taboo that though I've been back in the US for over 5 years, I still won't write a person's name in red. I've actually put down a pen I was writing with and changed colors when I realized I was going to have to write a name. Though once I was really, really fed up with somebody, I broke the rule. Everybody in the office laughed when I said, "I've had it with Mike! I'm writing his name in RED INK!"

I had a delivery driver for a supermarket stop by my work the other day for breakfast. I asked what they were up to and he told me he had to go to work for a training course. On top of that he said he’d done the same 9 hour course last year, but didn’t get the certificate because the instructor didn’t have him down to be there. Now THAT is stupid

I think the most moronic thing I've ran into are bosses freaking out if you're five minutes late on a job where you're not actively relieving someone (9-5). How many times have I stayed 5, 10, 20 minutes, even 1-2 hours late for bullshit? Yet you're going to yell at me for being five minutes late. Fuck you.

I used to work for a manufacturing company as a welder. If you had to shut down your welding cell for any reason, you had to first inform your supervisor. The supervisors’ desks were all in the office about 5 minutes away from the actual welding department. This meant that what would’ve been a 2 minute stop to clear a jam in an automated weld-nut feeder turned into a 15 minute stop minimum to walk to the supervisor, explain the situation, then walk back and fix it. This was the improved situation from when I first started there. Back then, you had to do all of the same, but the welders weren’t allowed to fix anything, so that 2 minute jammed feeder turned into a 2 hour wait for maintenance to show up. P.S. To fix a jam, which happened frequently, all you had to do was turn off the feeder, disconnect the tube, and let gravity pull the offending nut into your waiting, gloved hand. Without the air pressure from the feeder, the nut won’t be jammed anymore.

Umm, it's illegal to forbid employees from discussing salary. Employers can't do that, employees have the right to discuss it. Employers just frown on it because it limits how much they can f you over when it comes time to negotiate salaries. Actually, several of the items here are pretty illegal... Amazing how much crap some employers are getting away with.

We're not allowed to enter a home with loose pets, every breed/species. I love all pets. I feel so much less stress over my job when I can pet an animal. But no, because insurance companies and total bureaucratic bullshit I'm stuck with the joyless assholerly of ordering the pets be kenneled/locked up before I can enter a home. If I somehow get killed/injured by a stray bullet while in someones home, my parents/me gets stuck with the cost of my funeral/treatment because if the insurance bureaucrats find out the pets were loose, my coverage is null and void. (I also would be fired even though the pet had nothing to do with my injury) I've literally had to refuse to enter several businesses because they allowed dogs onsite, and had no facilities to contain them. My boss has had to negate several complaints, so I can get my typical raise, because of this rule. I'm pretty sure he hates me because I demand he negates those negative reviews every time, and it's probably a painful paper-chore. I was nearly bitten by a tiny pom just approaching the customer's home, (thankfully he only got shoe and my light kick was enough to drive him off) I'm pretty sure I would have been fired if I even mentioned this.

most ridiciluous thing i ever heard came from my uncle. now my uncle is turning 40 this year, is 2.02/110kg hasn't swimmed in his life, couldn't swim if even his life depended on it. beach holidays with with him and my aunt were something special because - my aunt (40) also can't swim. they have kids who swim like a fish. it'd always be funny watching my nieces/nethwbwhews swim out 5 meters, where the depth would be more than 2m and taunt them, and they'd be unable to do anything because they'd drown. of course, rest of the family wouldn't help, but rather swim out with kiddies and we'd all taunt them family-stlye xD my uncle is security guard. at a court. in the middle of our city. nearest body of water, the river that runs through our city, is more than 4km away. he is requiered by law to be able to swim to keep his job . ''WHY THE FUCK DO I HAVE TO KNOW HOW TO SWIM? TO SAVE SOMEONE FROM THE SINK???'' he learned how to swim. he did the mandatory course. he failed it because he didn't swim 5 times olympic lenght of a pool within certain period of time. my comment was - DO THEY NOT KNOW THAT YOU BEING ACTUALLY ABLE TO SWIM OLYMPIC LENGHT 5 TIMES IS LIKE, ENDEAVOUR COMPARABLE TO JESUS' SECOND COMMING, PROBABLY?!?! :D '' almost got my ass kicked by my uncle. he was really pissed he had to take that 5-week course AGAIN just to build up some speed. xD so now my aunt in the only person in my whole family who can't swim. :D can't wait for the next holiday

At my job, I do a lot of work with GPG keys. Across the many environments... production, UAT, QA, etc... the number of these keys starts to add up. With any (hopefully) IT company, there are generally rules or guidelines that must be followed in the creation of these keys. One day, I sent an email out to our QA team advising them that they're going to want to use for the work they were doing. Immediately I got reprimanded by my manager. I wasn't sure as to why - so he goes on to explain that WAAAY back in 2005, the old Ops team had created this key, AND MADE THE KEYS PASSPHRASE THE SAME AS THE NAME OF THE KEY. They inadvertently created this Voldemort situation. Not only can you not refer to this key by name across email, you can't refer to this key by name AT ALL. That includes by voice. It's just such a ridiculous situation, but the testing this QA team does is so deeply ingrained with this key that just replacing it is out of the question. Unbelievable...

The contract at my last job stated that you had to call in sick at least 2 hours before work started. I had to start at 7:45 and HR started at 8:30. There was no answering machine. So if I felt sick I had to go to work, wait 45 minutes until the HR girls arrive and then ask to go home/the doctor.

In some Las Vegas casinos, dealers are not allowed to use customer rest rooms because of customer complaints about the dealers not washing their hands. They don't get the dealers to wash their hands, they just make them hide that they don't. I work in a casino in LV, NV, and this is the reason the rule was created at my casino. I won't tell you which casino.

It is illegal for workplaces to forbid employees from drinking water. Businesses may prevent their employees from drinking other beverages but they are expected to ensure you have a proper means to get water to drink or else they are in violation of numerous safe working standards and can be fined heavily.
Samuel Plyler
Samuel Plyler 25 gün önce
@no no I am aware of that but they still can not forbid the drinking of water. Where I work we are not allowed any liquids on the floor but they have a drinking fountain with water and another station with water and lemonade and during the summer they have Gatorade to ensure people are able to keep hydrated and keep their electrolytes up since the factory floor gets hot. Furthermore the company encourages you to get a drink whenever necessary especially during the summer. Now where I work does not have to provide Gatorade and lemonade but they must supply water. The lemonade and Gatorade is just cause they care about us as employees.

They can't forbid you from drinking water, but they can forbid you from having water bottles in certain areas. Every place I've worked except Home Depot refused to allow water bottles outside of breakrooms. You have to walk to a water fountain or return to the breakroom to drink.

We were not supposed to take tips from a customer, no matter how small or big it is. And also we were not to be bribed if someone asks us to prioritize them.

Omg in my area pretty much every customer knows about no-tip policies for retail employees (somehow) and we now have people regularly giving out a filled stamp card for coffee places like Dutch Brothers or Black Rock as tips!

Safety glasses across all departments. I drive the forklift in the shipping sector. Nowhere near production. Since we make wooden doors, the shop is kept at a balmy 25C (about 80ish F, I think) and high humidity at all times to keep the raw timber conditioned, and there's no AC. In other words, the glasses fog up pretty often. Which isn't ideal when I'm trying to get 1000$ French doors out of racks about 40ft up.

About having to call the district manager before the police, even in the event of an emergency: I once worked at the fuel desk/convenience store half of a truck stop. We used a small building on our lot as a TV lounge for the truck drivers. A driver came in and said that it was full of smoke, so we called the fire department. A ballast in one of the lights was smoking. After having heard about it, the owner berated us and told us to call him first next time. One of my coworkers, ever the wiseass, asked, "Why? Do you have a fire truck?" The owner got flustered and said "No! I just want to know first."

That rule about leaving disabled people on the second floor behind in case of a fire isn't actually a "dumb" rule tho. It has a very good reason to be there even tho it might seem cruel. Imagine you tried to help that weelchair bound guy down the stairs. If there are still other people up there too you are now blocking at least a large part of that stair if not the whole stair and slow down everyone else. So by helping this 1 guy you risk the life of everyone behind you. Even if there is noone behind you anymore it still means you gonna take longer to get out of there, which in turn increases the risk of you NOT making it out in time. If the firefighters now try to rescue anyone left behind they have to rescue 2 people instead of 1 making their job vastly more difficult and risky, putting even more people at risk.

There is also the much more likely scenario of it being a false alarm and there is a non-zero chance of either the wheelchair bound person or the "helper" that is helping them getting hurt (falling down the stairs or pulling a muscle) when there was no reason to even attempt moving them.
