Only a politician can get away with being a “maverick” on the job. Not just get away with it, but be praised for it.

What other job would let you do the opposite of what your coworkers were telling you to do?


Car assembly-line worker: “I don’t care what you say. Having the steering wheel in the trunk will turn this industry around.”

Grocery bagger: “Yeah, I put the 25-pound bag of kibble on top of the eggs. Is that a problem?”

Bank teller: “His check was only for $5, but I gave him $50,000 because he had an earmark. It was blue and veiny.”
