Really Rubbish Job.
I used to work for a nasty retail chain in Scotland, the managers there always adopted the "I am much too important for this" attitude when dealing with the staff, and working conditions there were hell.

I had handed in my notice (I was fed up with the abuse from managers and customers) and on my last day, a few minutes before the end of my shift, I decided to get my revenge on those evil managers.

Every receipt printed there has a promotional message on it, usually some shit about special offers and such, I logged into a terminal (only one user name and password, everyone used) and accessed this data, I changed it so that every receipt had the words "The managers in Makro are Fucking Wankers"

It was hilarious, as apparently it took them three days to notice it, and hundreds of receipts had been printed, Imagine if you had just bought something from them, and noticed that printed on the receipt!

If something is deserved, does it make it evil?

Have you told this story before? I've definitely heard it,
That's not to say it's not true, just that if you haven't told it before you're not the only one to have done it.

That wasn't really as hilarious as you thought it was. 2/10.

I worked for Makro in the summer of 1996.
Awful company - but being at the bottom of the chain had its advantages. Supervisors were expected to put in "loyalty time" - basically, unpaid overtime - to demonstrate loyalty to the company.

Rather as people in North Korea are expected to cry on cue to show loyalty to the Dear Leader, I guess.

I used to program software for Cash Registers.
One of the tech team installed 40 devices using some of my test data. When the store opened in the morning the customers were greeted to a friendly,'Would the next victim please step up' on the 2-line display.

They got lucky. Some of the other test strings were downright pornographic.

So close . . .
But what have been REALY evil (and would have seriously inconvenienced the managers) would have been to print on every receipt "£50 off your next shopping bill!"

Bloody hell!

I wish I had done that instead!
