So it took quite a bit of consternation on my part in the end, but it has happened. Not for despising of the soulless, lumbering bureaucracy, but instead for pettiness in small degrees, accumulated. I once read that you are not loyal to your job; you are loyal to people. And this truism is definitely valid in this case.
I've got a question (or is it a riddle??) for you:
- blocked local movement repeatedly
- padded internal performance reviews to fabricate narratives of disloyal, unproductive, or incompetent employees as their reports
