Simple Sabotage

This declassified 1944 manual on sabotage (via the Joho Blog) is filled with awesomeness, particularly in the parts that have to do with political defiance instead of just smashing machines:

(9) When training new workers, give incomplete or misleading instructions.

(10) To lower morale and with it, production, be pleasant to inefficient workers; give them undeserved promotions. Discriminate against efficient workers; complain unjustly about their work.

(11.) Hold conferences when there is more critical work to be done.

I'm pretty sure that they've handed this out at several past employers, perhaps retitling it "Management 101."

(i) Cry and sob hysterically at every occasion, especially when confronted by government clerks.

My next visit to the DMV is going to be the best ever.
