Entitled Customers Demand Extra Black Olives on Their Pizza, Malicious Compliance Ensues

Fail Blog - 2 hours 7 min ago

Be careful what you wish for! These entitled customers kept calling a pizza place demanding for a free second pizza with extra black olives because the first one didn't have enough olives on it. After numerous situations in which this occurred and they got their precious second free pizza out of it, this Redditor felt the need to communicate to these freeloaders that the jig was up, so to speak. 

 

This thread was posted to Reddit's r/MaliciousCompliance subreddit by u/LiteratureNo3595, who deserves a medal for giving these entitled folks the malicious compliance fiasco they deserved. You want extra black olives? No problem. The original poster proceeded to fill the entire surface area of that second pizza with black olives. Was it a waste? Perhaps. Was it worth it? Yes, yes, a thousand times yes.

'Is this even legal': Job advertisement for server in USA the sparks international debate online over outrageously low wage

The thought of being paid less than the legal minimum wage sounds outrageous to some people, especially to those outside of the US, but that's just how the bizarre nature of the US tipping culture works. 

Woman is mistakenly emailed an HOA violation for a property 600 miles away, trolls them with epic pettiness

Fail Blog - 3 hours 7 min ago

Neighborhood HOAs do not have a good track record these days. They used to be more like an HR department for neighbors to work through conflicts and disagreements in their community. Now, they just yell at you for your property not looking a certain way they want it to look. For example, god forbid you have a few weeds growing on your lawn. 

Recently, a girl named Mae online posted about an HOA violation she received about the weeds on her lawn. The email was caddy and entitled and nit picky. The woman was rightfully upset, but the thing is, her name is not "Marie" as the email is addressed to and the property in question was not her home at all. She doesn't live anywhere near there—in fact, she lives 600 miles away from that property. That didn't stop her from emailing them back a strongly worded email. "Justice for Marie and also I hate HOAs," she said. 

'New job bait and switch': Home improvement store hires electrician to plumbing department over actual plumber, this goes exactly as expected

Fail Blog - 4 hours 7 min ago

There are certain things in life that just make sense: Like hiring a plumber to help in your plumbing department and an electrician for the electrical department. Well, this mysteriously nameless "home improvement store" got their wires crossed when this manager decided to nepotistically appoint an electrician to the full-time plumbing department that they had just hired a plumber to work in.

When the plumber came to start their full-time job… they were told by the manager that they actually had a part-time job instead, who expected praise and thanks for their gracious act of job-giving mercy. This went on for some time until the plumber managed to find a job outside of the plumbing department, which landed the manager in hot water when sales "pulmbeted."

This went exactly about as you would expect it to, turns out electricians aren't the best for giving advice on plumbing supplies — who knew?

'I've had the same conversation 6 times': Infuriating customer service bots provide 'worst customer service ever,' customer stuck in endless loop

Fail Blog - 5 hours 7 min ago

Trying to get to the airport for a flight is truly one of the most stressful things in the world. No matter how well you plan, how far in advance or how organized you try to be, issues will arise. This poster on Imgur shared their outrageous experience with one of the worst customer service chat bots ever, like maybe in the history of chat bots. It's genuinely cringeworthy to see the repeated attempts of this poor person to get some help!

Keeping Warm On These Cold Days With Snuggly Tucked In Kitty Cats

LOL Cats - 6 hours 7 min ago

Yup, it is officially cold outside. A part of us hates it because… cold. But a part of us loves it, because it being cold outside means that we'll be making hot cocoa and tea and that we'll be snuggling under blankets. It means that our cats will be seeking out more warmth too, and that means that our cats will be cuddling with us far more often. It means that we can hide from the rain inside with our kitties, watching it from the window in the warmth of our homes. And it means - of course - that we're gonna have sooo many picture opportunities of adorable tucked in kitty cats

Cats just- look so cute when they are peeking their heads out from underneath our blankets - when our sweet cats are wrapped up like purritos. We love seeing it, we love taking pictures of it, and so does the rest of the internet, apparently, because when we looked for pictures like that, we found a goldmine. 

PS, go ahead and treat yourself to our pawesome new products: a cat calendar, and a matching cat & me Christmas sweater!

Karen scapegoats IT Guy for her stupid nonexistent problems, he makes her entire department redundant

Fail Blog - 7 hours 7 min ago

Sometimes in life… the low road is the right one. 

This Karen brought a metaphorical knife to an actual nuclear arms race when she decided to go toe to toe with this IT guy and blamed him for all of her stupid nonexistent troubles. As readers have pointed out in the comments: It's never a good idea to pick a fight with the guy who writes code when your job is easily replaced by a single line of it — that's just begging for the unfortunate outcome that has occurred for Karen here. 

After the repeated conflict between the IT Department and Karen and her team, things came to a head in a meeting where Karen tried to scapegoat the IT Guy for her troubles, which prompted him to reveal his genius solution.

This Week's Most Meowrific Cat Tweets Featuring Lots Of Feline Goodness (December 1, 2022)

LOL Cats - 7 hours 7 min ago

Hey there cat lovers and Twitter enthusiasts. Aren't cats just the most interesting little (and not so little!) creatures? They sure do have a way of doing absolutely nothing yet being remarkably entertaining at the same time. We humans thoroughly enjoy sitting back in our chairs and simply observing cats doing their silly cat things. Whether those things be sitting in the loaf position, sleeping at all hours of the day, or zooming around the house at 3 am, we are here for all of it. Our cats are weird little guys, and you best believe we support them. 

We're in the mood for some pawesome cat tweets. Anyone else? Yeah, we know you guys are with us on this one. We're here once again to go through the very best cat tweets that Twitter managed to push out in the past week. Let's enjoy this wonderful compilation of cat Tweets featuring the sweetest, fluffiest boys and girls that took over the Twittersphere last week. We must say that cats never fail to amuse us, cat-loving humans. Though, to be honest we are very easy to impress. Especially when there are cats involved. 

'I have been reprimanded for productivity issues': Employee gets shamed by company for being too efficient

Fail Blog - 8 hours 7 min ago

Why should any of this matter if the work gets done well? This employee was shamed by their horrible boss for getting the required work done over the course of four hours instead of eight. The reality is that they're just incredibly efficient and thorough, while their coworkers tend to get the same amount of work done over the whole day. 

 

This thread, which was posted to Reddit's r/MaliciousCompliance subreddit, is a prime example of why we need to rethink our collective approach to productivity in the workplace. If you want workers to do more than what is required, they need to be encouraged and incentivized either with a salary boost or some other meaningful perk. Ideally, we can work in an environment where no one has to draw out their work over the course of an eight-hour day and just be honest when they're, you know, done with their tasks. But I suppose we do not live in that ideal world yet.

Funniest Pspsps Cat Memes That'll Remind You of Your Chonky Fur Demon That's Always Trying to Tell You Something

LOL Cats - Wed, 11/30/2022 - 18:00

They say that cats don't meow at other cats; they literally have adopted the skill of using their vocal cords purely for the ability to manipulate humans. Knowing that hoomans are easily swayed by cute little mews and smol baby-like sounds, cats have developed a habit of vocalizing exactly what they want to their owners in order to get everything their tiny hearts desire. This kitty might secretly hate you, but it needs your height and your opposable thumbs to reach the things it wants. Kittens use us so we can grab their canned food (how would they open that bugger of a container without us?), so we can buy them cat toys (nobody would take a kitty with a credit card seriously at Petsmart), and to siphon their p00p out of the sandbox for them (a cat would just… never). So the sooner you realize that your cat only pspsps's to get your attention to do their bidding, the sooner you can communicate with this little fur devil and everybody wins. 

Silliest Cat Expressions That Illustrate Human Language in the Form of Memes

LOL Cats - Wed, 11/30/2022 - 17:00

We pawsitively adore cat content and let's be honest, cats are elite. Sorry not sorry, we don't make the rules. Their expressions are comical, relatable, and a fun source to make memes with. There should be a cat face 'Feeling Wheel' (if you don't know what that is, we highly recommend you look it up. Go Dr. Gloria!). You can sift through the different expressions and say 'Bingo, that's how I'm feeling!'. We'd definitely buy one of those.

 

Cats really understand the inner workings of the human brain (doesn't mean they care), and the proof is in the comical expressions they make. We were scrolling through Instagram when we were hit by a flash of lightning (figuratively, of course). Why not make one of our own, in the form of a memes list? And so we did. You can thank us later, let's get into the hilarious memes.

Although as beautiful as a kitten, Flossie has been recognized by Guinness World Records as the oldest living cat in the world. She is turning 27 in December, which is the human equivalent of 120 years old. Flossie sure is a cutie, she

Flossie sure is a fighter and we are here for her journey. She currently lives with her delightful human, who is experienced in caring for senior cats and giving them the love and attention they absolutely deserve. Flossie has seen much during her long life, and we hope she continues to live a happy and healthy life for as long as time allows her.

20+ Memes about New Jersey for Taylor ham stans and people who don't pump gas, ever

Fail Blog - Wed, 11/30/2022 - 15:00

Ah, New Jersey. A complex state on the east coast. Basically everyone low-key hates it there, first and foremost the people who live there! But for some reason, they all stay in dirty Jerz. Is it the location - close to the cheesesteaks of Philadelphia and the beaches of Atlantic City? Is it the sprawling suburbs, or the I-95 that draws folks in? Maybe it's rooting for only Philly teams (GO EAGLES!) and our favorite mascots (that would be Gritty, obviously). I grew up there, so I know enough about Jersey to know that it's beloved while also being the butt of a million jokes. All New Jersians know that NJ is fair game to be dunked on only by people who have lived there - otherwise we'll defend the state forever! 

Enjoy these finely curated memes about the home state of the Jersey Devil, then check out the tale of one overconfident groom who was 110% sure he could cook his entire wedding meal on his own…until the internet explained otherwise.

Ah, red flags. They were right in front of you the whole time…

 

This thread was posted to r/AskReddit, and let's just say that the comments range from the hilarious to the absolutely crazy. Before we scroll down and get a peek into some of these wild breakup stories, let's take a moment to acknowledge that everything is easier to see in hindsight. That being said, if the whole world is telling you that your partner's cheating on you, you should probably listen. Hopefully, people learn from their mistakes, and everyone reading these anecdotes can have productive takeaways. For instance, now I know that if my golden retriever isn't a fan, then I shouldn't be either. You learn something new every day, I suppose. Keep scrolling below to have a look for yourself!
