“Window washers”
A donut I worked for a very clean bicycle shop. One day a friend of mine was walking past the enormous panel windows that served as the walls of the store. She recognized me, and slapped the window to get my attention. My supervisor, who had been watching the whole affair, shooed her away, and demanded that I wash the windows immediately. One of my peers, observing this overreaction, reacted with a simple shrug and rolling of the eyes. Apparently, this was grounds for his termination, for insubordination. Higher ups vetoed this decision, but he left anyway. LINK
