There use to be a Russian joke about the Police & it probably applies to those managers.
They go around in threes. One can read, one can write & the other is there to keep an eye on the intellectuals.
When I worked for first bus I got a disciplinary slip for running 45 seconds early. Their evidence was a complaint from a lunatic councillor who complained about everyone. They did not say 45 seconds could be a discrepancy between watches they issued a slip. Probably together with several others.
We took their warning slips real serious & more than 5 for one week got you a free drink in the canteen.
Someone took an over time claim form to a manager for a week about two months prior to that date.
"An over time form, can you sign it please."
"Why didn't you get it sorted at the time?"
"I was on Holiday in Spain."
"Well if you were on Holiday, I not bloody signing it. Is it some kind of joke?"
"Not a joke no. I got this disciplinary notice for that day, so rather than object to it, I thought I get some over time in instead."
