Elon Musk is a dangerous egomaniac, should be beaten within an inch of his life and forced to apologize to everyone.

/Prove me wrong

You are actively convincing me NOT to buy your product.

Not enough desks, and shiatty WiFi? Pathetic.

You're too kind to Elon.

I think the most fitting end for this guy would be one of his stupid Boring company flame throwers sets his dick on fire, and he tries to put the fire out by jumping out of a 30th floor window.

/fark off, Elon.

Elon should start a company to deliver low cost yet fast internet service.

I don't get it... wouldn't the remote workers save Musk  money? Why is he insisting that everyone spend all that money to drive in to work? Is it a 'everyone must be as miserable as I am' sort of thing? Or maybe a 'you must be seen using our products - no you don't get a discount, stop asking' sorta thing?

It's relatively simple - Musk is a manipulative, controlling egomaniac.

Sounds like a relatively quick death.

I'd rather he and bezos make a bet against the wrong people and through a series of hijinks our two abusive billionaires end up broke and destitute.

He identifies as a right-wing edgelord now. Pretty soon he'll be putting out Teslas with V8 hemis to trigger the libs.

Because. He had to lay people off to save money and it embarrasses him. The edgelord way to do that is pretending you fired them for not bowing to your will.

Bonus: musky won't even have to buy him a horse afterward. Win/win.

Anyway yeah if there's no desk space, people can't work. This is such an obvious issue that even the musksuckers should be able to see it. There's a simple solution though: muskrat needs to spend more money on office space. I'm sure his crypto holdings should cover a new office block for the people he's demanding show up to a physical site so he can walk through and lord over his subjects, er, monitor his employees.

I was starting to calm down, and then you reminded me what a world changing big deal this is. And now my rage is full again. Not. Enough. Desks!!

People like him are a great source of revenue and clicks. There are YouTubers with channels dedicated to debunking his clueless bullshiat which I admit is quite entertaining.

Right, like I said he's an entertaining topic which generates clicks. He's not exactly presented in a positive light.
Also due to YouTube's incompetence and how their system works, many YouTubers turn to external sources of revenue like sponsors and Patreon.

One of my favorites is the debunking of his TED talk, here's the first episode. The guy is farking clueless.

HP did this 5 or 6 years ago... I was the only one on my team IN THIS STATE, when they demanded I return to the office. At home, I had comfort, 3 screens and my ergo keyboard. At the office, I sat in a "hobo cube" with a keyboard that looked wireless, until I realize the cable had been yanked out, and a monitor that was permanently shading all video purple. Even worse, I sat at the end of a row, exposed to foot traffic working on potentially classified material for a government contract.

I quit to go work at another company.

At one point, they even suggested we just work in the cafeteria and use the wifi. Really? Who wants to sit in a noisy cafeteria on those hard bench seats for 8 hours... and what about power?

HP lost the plot so bad in their idiocy, that Meg Whitman reportedly went through one of the offices putting sticky notes on every monitor in a space that was unoccupied, demanding the worker report directly to her and explain why they were not at their desk or get fired on the spot.

Today I'm at a company that figured out we worked pretty damn well remote during the pandemic, and I only go into the office once or twice a month, on my decision.

LesserEvil: I quit to go work at another company.


I should have expanded on this.... I decided that if I HAD to fight the commute and drive into an office, I might as well as go somewhere they'd pay me more (30% raise in pay). A lot of my fellow workers did the same. Basically, HP managed to burn off all of their VERY employable (i.e. the best) workers with stupid "return to the office" directives.

But HP kept the ones desperate for a job and willing to put up with those shenanigans.

Wow. Tesla has over half the number of Ford employees and 1/3 of Toyota? Thats the big story. That's insane to me. Ford and Toyota each produce millions of vehicles globally.

So you have nothing as expected. The narrator makes a point to back up his claims with evidence.
