I was fired for "time theft". I didn't give a rat's ass. I saw it as good praxis considering where I was working at the time.

At that job I read "Weapons of the Weak" by James C. Scott, highly recommend: https://www.amazon.com/Weapons-Weak-Everyday-Peasant-Resistance/dp/0300036418

"Time theft" has been a class weapon wielded by the lower classes for time immemorial.
