'He wanted to be the first one of the day': Entitled market owner delays trucker by 4 hours

Fail Blog - Sat, 05/18/2024 - 12:00

This customer tried to get some petty payback on a company that he felt had wronged him. It didn't end well for him! 

Customers tend to fall into two groups when they've been wronged by an establishment. Let's say for example a customer buys a product, and it's faulty, and they try to return it. The store refuses and won't budge. The customer may get so irate that they declare, "I'm never coming back here ever again!" Here's where the two groups come into play: some of those people mean it, and others are lying. The group that is lying will keep coming back to the store, usually out of convenience or laziness, but they'll make life hard for the employees. 

It's never made sense to me why people would bother doing that. If you get shoddy service somewhere, what's a better reward for yourself than never paying them another penny? You get the satisfaction of finding a better product elsewhere, and you won't be lining the pockets of a shady business. If you just keep going back to a company and complaining about how much you dislike it, you're going to be the person the employees laugh at and make fun of in the break room. Just leave!

After you check out the story of the irritated customer who demanded to get his deliveries first, read the story of the grandma who took on an impolite bank manager and won big

Employee files complaint after boss is caught on video stealing her bag, HR sides with boss: 'She faced no consequences'

Fail Blog - Sat, 05/18/2024 - 11:00

This workplace debacle pretty much epitomizes the idea that HR protects the employer, not the employees.

When the evidence of wrongdoing is so definitive, it's hard to imagine the human resources department coming up with a justified reason to side with the boss. However, this team managed to side with her anyway. Here, we have an employee who caught her boss stealing her bag after work hours. Furthermore, the security cameras even captured the boss leaving the office with the employee's bag and dumping it into the trash. It doesn't get much more obvious than that.

The employee usually leaves her bag with her personal office supplies (pens, paper, etc.) under her desk at the end of each work day. She first notices that something was fishy when she arrived at work one day, only to discover that her pens and papers were neatly stacked under her desk while her bag just so happened to be missing. After searching through the security camera footage and discovering that it was, in fact, her boss who was behind the whole thing, the employee filed a formal complaint against her boss. Still, HR managed to side with the boss, so the employee took the opportunity to stand up for herself and leave this job altogether.

Tech support employee attempts to fix incompetent new hire's mistake but they get fired anyway: 'She just stared at her desktop'

Fail Blog - Sat, 05/18/2024 - 10:00

Once I had a very incompetent coworker who was just the nicest person to walk the face of the earth. Seriously, it was so hard to be angry at her for not doing her job well because she was always so chipper and thoughtful. Much like Lucy in this story.

One employee took to r/talesfromtechsupport to share a story about their coworker, Lucy, who began working as a HelpDesk technician at a financial company. They did password resets, fixed Windows issues, and basically did all of the tech stuff related to the office. The tech support department was small, but they had a lot of turnovers. The employee in question had become the most senior person on the job, so they were given the task to teach Lucy how to excel at her work. Well, Lucy was adorable, but she also wasn't born to work in tech support, and that was the simple truth of it.

After reading how Lucy inevitably messed up despite her good intentions, check out this housemate who kept ordering food with their roommate's money and getting full refunds, but not returning the cash to their roommate.

32 Fluffy Feline Photos of Funny Cats with Wholesome Purrsonalities

LOL Cats - Sat, 05/18/2024 - 10:00

My neighborhood is full of stray cats who rule the block. Walking around like kings and queens, knowing no one will ever catch them. They can stroll around in peace, hopping from house to house and looking for the neighbors who leave snacks out for them to indulge in. Purrsonally, I love them. It brings a little joy into my day to see cats of all colors sunbathing effortlessly on the sidewalk while I'm headed out of my neighborhood on my commute to work. My dog, on the other hand, is not so fond of them. They drive him nuts - and it seems they do it on purrpose too. From sitting in our driveway, mischievously swaying their tails from side to side while my German Shepard watches in agony behind a fence as they taunt him. Just last night, we were enjoying an evening in the backyard when I spotted a sneaky little feline creeping down the driveway. My dog did not take lightly to this, running full blast through the opening between the fence (in my defense, it seems impossible that a dog of his size could squeeze through this tiny opening, but apparently, with enough momentum, he most definitely can). Sprinting with all his might (and me running furiously behind him), he stood no chance compared to the speed of the strays. He gave up not far down the road and returned home defeated—another point for the felines.

‘I got 25000 miles from my email nemesis’: People share the most clever ways to get strangers who use their email addresses to stop

Fail Blog - Sat, 05/18/2024 - 09:00

People with common first and last names all deal with the issue that they have to share their names with a lot of other people around the globe. There must be thousands of people with names like John Smith or Mary Williams, and that can create a lot of issues.

One of those issues is presented in this funny petty revenge story. OP (original poster), for years, has been dealing with a person, probably with the same name as her, trying to use her email account. That person doesn't really have access to the email account, but they continuously use the address for their personal affairs, like prescriptions and memberships. Since OP has no way of contacting that person, she came up with a clever way of getting them to stop. This story sparked a funny discussion in the comments of all the ways Redditors got their "email nemesis" to stop using their addresses.

'My manager asks Karen exactly what she wants': Helicopter parent refuses to accept dorm roommates for her college-aged son

Fail Blog - Sat, 05/18/2024 - 08:00

Being a helicopter parent to a toddler is one thing, but if your kid grows up and you're still acting that way, it's going to get awkward real fast. 

When you're raising a toddler, it makes sense to keep a close eye on them. They're whirling dervishes of destruction who can color your couch with markers one minute and climb inside the dishwasher the next. But over time, you've got to let your kids gain independence by seeing the world on their own. Too bad no one ever told this college kid's mother, who is still apparently running her son's life like she's glued to his side. 

One Redditor headed to the r/ChoosingBeggars subreddit to share this wild tale of the "choosing beggar mom" who's getting far too involved with her son's life. He hasn't actually gone off to college yet, since he's still trying to figure out which roommates to live with. Most of the time, you're just randomly assigned a roommate. They either become your best friend, your worst enemy, or someone who's just kind of there. You don't know what it'll be until you live with them. No matter what happens, it's important to learn how to get along with all different types of people… too bad this kid might never get the chance to do that if his mom doesn't lighten up a bit. 

Next up, this dude was irate when a pizza delivery driver kept insisting on speaking to his girlfriend, plus trying to give her a note!

Fail Blog - Sat, 05/18/2024 - 07:00

One day, you're going to quit your job—and that's a fact… Whether it's over a disagreement, for relocation, for growth—or because you're leaving the workforce for good. When that time comes, it will be up to you (mostly) on what terms you want to leave on. Do you want to leave on good terms, possibly even despite long-held grudges?

Mysterious Boy Band of Stray Cats Approach Hooman’s Home Every Night, Bewildered Hooman Gets Hissterical Answers From the Litter Box of the Internet

LOL Cats - Sat, 05/18/2024 - 07:00

Hello, I Can Has-ers and loyal members of the cat distribution system. We don't even try to understand what goes on inside a cat's mind, even less so when there are a couple of them together. So when a mysterious boy band of four stray cats comes up to your window every night at the exact same time every evening, you might start to wonder what's going on. Purrhaps the council of cats is choosing them as their next adoptee? Maybe they are looking for a new tasty tuna treat? Or purrhaps they are undercover HOA agents, inspecting their house for immediate entry.

So, wholesome feline lover took to the internet to get some advice on what is going on, and as you can expect the internet had everything, and at the same time nothing, to offer. We won't even spend time writing about them here, but you'll just have to scroll down to read all of these silly kitty comments below. This is truly what cats are for - being silly and causing chaos!

'Today I snapped': CEO's receptionist bosses around a tech support guy, guilt-tripping him into doing tasks outside his job description before getting hastily put in her place

Fail Blog - Sat, 05/18/2024 - 06:00

Whether you're a computer wiz or technologically challenged, we can all agree that there's one office appliance that has earned the award for 'Worst Piece of Equipment Ever Made': The printer. No matter which way you approach it, printers always have something wrong with them, they never work properly, and their interfacing changes seemingly on a whim. I'm not suggesting that printers are out to get us, but if there were any mechanical appliance that was to take over the world just to spite humanity, I wouldn't be surprised if it was somehow orchestrated by the printers. 

Although there are some companies where the tech support teams are in charge of printer management, the techy guy in our next story had the fortune to work for a company large enough to outsource this responsibility to professionals. However, the pushy, arrogant, and CLUELESS receptionist in our next story didn't seem to know the difference between the official printer company's tech guys and their own. 

Scroll for the entire tale of how a tech support guy stood up for himself by setting healthy boundaries in the workplace, even when a bossy and incompetent coworker tried to push him around. 

20 Cutest Kittens Of The Week: The Tiniest, Most Irresistibly Awwdorable Criminals (May 18, 2024)

LOL Cats - Sat, 05/18/2024 - 06:00

Oh, wow, you're here again. Are you not listening? Why do you never heed our warnings? Yes, this listicle is full of teeny weeny kittens, that's true, but you keep forgetting that these kittens possess powers like no other creature on the planet. Their powers of manipulation are too great. They make us aww uncontrollably, they fill our stomachs with butterflies, and without even noticing ourselves doing it, we suddenly find ourselves marching down to a local shelter to adopt yet another cat

They even have the power to make us create this listicle, showcasing the smallest kittens - i.e. the biggest criminals - every single week. We can't help ourselves. We got the command from up top, and now, there's nothing we can do about it. But you can still save yourselves (from adopting your 10th kitten), so this is your warning, once again, proceed with caution, or these kittens will get you.

Researcher gets back at startup bro by helping make a better product and selling it to the competition: 'Now he's going out of business'

Fail Blog - Sat, 05/18/2024 - 05:00

It's easy to make enemies with startup bros. They're not exactly the most likable bunch of individuals. 

This so-called "CEO" spent way more energy stirring the pot with competitors than running an actual company, and it wound up biting him on the behind in the end. First, he lost a tech competition to an academic researcher and started sending a ton of mean-spirited messages. He even crashed the researcher's Zoom lecture to spam the comments. This was the final straw for the researcher, who decided to take the opportunity to check out this startup bro's subpar product.

The product was supposed to be a water filtration apparatus, but it did not take long for the researcher to perfect the product and come up with a far better system. Rather than help the startup bro out, he decided to sell his new product to the CEO's biggest competitor. You can imagine what happened to the startup bro's business after that.

‘Mom, am I adopted?’: Twin sisters take genetic test only to discover they share no DNA, parents refuse to admit that one of them is adopted

Fail Blog - Sat, 05/18/2024 - 04:00

Siblings should always tease one another, that is pretty much the most basic rule in the siblings' rule book. One of the common ways to tease your younger siblings is by telling them they are actually adopted, and coming up with the most elaborate story for what happened with their actual birth parents, hiding their baby pictures, and sometimes even asking your parents to go along with it.

The girl in this Reddit story discovered that her life is not far from being a big adoption prank, except it isn't a prank at all. When she and her twin sister decided to take a random genetic test, the results showed that they didn't share any DNA. After making sure it wasn't just a mistake, OP (original poster), started questioning her family members about the test, but they were all uncooperative and refused to answer any of her questions, making OP believe she is, in fact, adopted.

Fluffy Feline Starts Limping Days After Diet, Kindhearted Hooman Stops Diet Immediately Which Prompts Clever Cat to Return to Normal: 'I definitely got played'

LOL Cats - Fri, 05/17/2024 - 20:00

Cats are clever, no doubt about it. But has your fluffy feline ever played you? Because mine plays me like a fiddle!

See, when Spock, my cute critter, was just a tiny baby, he had a big old brain, because he figured out how to make me feel so guilty about not giving what he wanted, that I gave in to anything. He got way too many treats for his own good! In fact, I had to bring Spock to the vet because he was getting too chubby. But then when he got put on a diet, he yowled for days until I was certain that something was seriously wrong and immediately took him off his diet. Wouldn't you know… he was silent as a mouse after that.

One hooman also got played by their hissterical cat, and the comments that ensued prove that it isn't an isolated incident. Scroll down to read the entertaining thread and then check out these fluffy felines that are too funny for their own good.

They say that when a cat is pregnant, she knows that she has to find shelter to make sure she can safely give birth to her litter.
