Everyone thinks that their boss is the worst, but this one actually is. Usually, being called out in front of the whole office doesn't involve corporal punishment. But Rural Commercial Bank in Changzhi, China, is run like a 19th century prep school, using public shaming and physical abuse to keep its employees in line.

A shocking video shows eight employees called on stage and scarily chastised by their boss for not meeting their targets. The boss man asks them why they're underperforming and not "exceeding themselves." The manager quickly whips out a large ruler, mercilessly whacking these grown humans on the bottom.

It makes Michael Scott actually seem like the World's Best Boss.
