What if the Ground Crew do not like a fighter jet Pilot

When pilot taxi a fighter jet pilot and ground crew communicate with each other through a set of signals

If ground crew losses that mutual trust ground crew might make pilot life miserable. Miraculously hydraulics leaks and fuel leaks might start happening which shut down the pilot and they might red tick pilot for it.
