If someone is "lazy" and "grumpy", that's most likely not because they are a bad person, but because they are tired, sick, stressed, burned out or all of the above. Punishment will not improve the situation.
I wonder where the whole idea that if you punish bad people they magically become better came from? Maybe we just needed an excuse because punishing the bad people felt so good?
