Here’s a list of five particularly timeless tips from the “Simple Sabotage Field Manual”:
1. Telephone: At the office, hotel, or local telephone switchboards, delay putting calls through, give out wrong numbers, cut people off “accidentally,” or forget to disconnect them so that the line cannot be used again.
Hay, that happened to me with one of those TV satellite guys. Yep, said I could have this and that and this and that all for free. But when they sent the order through it was all different. So I called them and got the spin a round. I made  phone calls. Been their customer since 2008. So I filed a complaint with the FCC and in one day a VP from headquarters called and made all nice nice. Got all of my money back and what I wanted, Thank you FCC in 2017.
2. Movie Theater Patrons: To ruin everyone’s time at the movies (without a cell phone, that is) bring in a paper bag filled with two or three dozen large moths. Open the bag and set it in an empty section of the theater. “The moths will fly out and climb into the projector beam, so that the film will be obscured by fluttering shadows.”
Nah, I don't go to movies that often
3. Managers and Supervisors: To lower morale and production, think of the worst boss you’ve had and act like that. Be pleasant to inefficient workers; give them undeserved promotions. Discriminate against efficient workers; complain unjustly about their work. When possible, refer all matters to committees for "further study and consideration." Attempt to make the committees as large and bureaucratic as possible. 4. Employees: Be forgetful. Clumsy. Work slowly. Think of ways to increase the number of movements needed to do your job: use a light hammer instead of a heavy one; try to make a small wrench do instead of a big one.
See that all the time and just thinking about those burnt buns..........

5. Transportation: Make train or air travel as inconvenient as possible. One particularly effective trick: issue two tickets for the same seat on a train in order to set up an “interesting” argument.
I read about the airlines doing that all the time.

Wait! What did I just read here? A fast food joint did not fill your parfait cup to the brim and THAT is an example of the "Little Guy" being screwed over by The Man? That's good for a laugh anyway. First World Problem, dude.
