'They were both stunned': Entitled brother thinks his child is the exception to "child-free" wedding, gets hit with the hammer of obvious truth

Wed, 11/30/2022 - 10:00

There will always be people who consider themselves to be the exception — to rules, laws, or just plain old common etiquette. These entitled individuals think they're the main character but don't even stop to consider the fact that they're really just making themselves into one of many faceless, disposable goons in everyone else's day — like those hordes of aliens in the first Avengers who just mercilessly eradicated in the final act having received literally zero screen time. 

Anyways, this brother made the classic entitlement blunder of thinking that his miracle baby was going to be the exception to a very strict "no children" rule at his brother's wedding — there's always one in the family. To nip this thought process in the bud, the groom sat his brother down and very explicitly laid out the rules in a way that even his brother would be able to understand.

Keep reading to see the screenshots and reactions to this story, as originally shared to Reddit's r/AmItheA**hole subreddit by Redditor u/throwaway3373123. For more, check out this guy who proposed at his brother's wedding, which prompted the brother to destroy his relationship.

'They lied [...] so I quit': Recruiter lies about new hire's job duties and working arrangement, new hire quits

Wed, 11/30/2022 - 09:00

Working relationships are built on mutual trust — so why are so many recruiters determined to start things off with deceit? 

 

Update! 'My mom was horrified': 'Upscale bakery' allegedly run by teens botches birthday cake, refuses to apologize

Wed, 11/30/2022 - 08:00

When you order a cake from a bakery, you expect it to look professional, right? Not for one customer, who got a bad surprise when this bakery kind of messed up her cake. It's botched enough to notice - but some people on the internet actually don't think it looks that bad. 

Weekly Demented Dose of Stupid People on Dating Apps

Wed, 11/30/2022 - 07:00

Dating has only become more and more frustrating as the years go by (we blame stupid people and technology). It's so easy to ghost people that it's become a trend. The thing with dating apps is that you don't actually know the person, and so anything they say can be interpreted in a million different ways… So one wrong move and they're on to the next. Just getting a date can be very hard. And even when you get past the talking stage, FOMO starts to set in, because these apps create an illusion of an endless supply of available people. The grass is always greener.

 

Anyhow, this 'endless supply of available people' is actually just an endless supply of idiots. The proof is in plain sight, ask anyone who's ever been on a dating app — they'll tell ya. At this point, we hope we won't end up settling because all the fish in the sea are actually piranhas. So without further ado, if you're failing miserably at dating apps, you are not alone, so check out the hilarious (yet slightly depressing) collection of fails down below. 

'Granny told them it would be $150 bucks': Entitled couple steals deeded parking space, has their car trapped... and faces the wrath of "Granny"

Wed, 11/30/2022 - 06:00

Once in a while, you come across someone who you decided to mess with — who you absolutely should not have messed with. Notable entries to this list who come to mind would be John Wick (seriously, leave the guy's dog alone), Master Chief (Grunts don't call him "The Demon" for nothing), Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino (who inspired the intro quote), and — last but not least: Granny (park in her space at your own peril). These individuals all have the common trait of displaying a laid-back outward demeanor that doesn't say too much regarding their ruthlessly lethal prowess — but try provoking them, and you'll be lucky if you live to tell the tale. 

This couple has obviously never watched Gran Tornio or learned to be careful with who they mess. So, when they stole Granny's parking space, she taught them a lesson they were never going to forget.

Keep reading for this delicious tale of neatly served just deserts. For more, check out this guy who parked in a tiny space left by two entitled parkers, leaving them unable to enter their vehicles. 

'I did not get paid this weekend': Bosses chose to delay running payroll without notice over a Holiday weekend

Wed, 11/30/2022 - 05:00

You know that moment when your boss ~forgets~ to run payroll? Over a holiday weekend, no less? This thread was posted to Reddit's r/antiwork subreddit by u/maggiefinally, who shared an email exchange with her boss in addition to texts with her coworker. All of this information confirms that the Redditor and her coworker were not compensated when they were supposed to be, nor were they informed about this in advance. 

 

This kind of major oversight says a lot about how many effs employers give about their employees. In this case, the answer is zero effs. Payroll is not something you delay; it's something you prioritize above all else. Otherwise, these horrible bosses will have to be okay with their employees showing up late, taking longer breaks, and not putting in more work than what is required.

'Tis the Season for Holly Jolly Christmas Fails That'll Make You Ho Ho Ho

Tue, 11/29/2022 - 15:00

Sometimes things don't register in your brain right away, you know? Like, you look at something and you think it's just an innocent little knick-knack that'll add some good vibes to your home. Then you bring it back, set it up, and someone else sees it and it turns out it looks like some vulgar thing that you can never unsee now. Yeah, well that's been happening with Christmas decorations since the invention of them. A tropical town might think it's a good idea to put Christmas lights up on their local palm trees lining the streets, but in fact, that just looks wrong and is definitely not G-rated. Or maybe you think it's a good idea to hide your little human's elf for elf on a shelf in the oven, but then you forget about it. Now you have melted burned to a crisp elves that look like sleep paralysis demons. Just check out some of our favorites from over time and you'll get it—it's basically part of Christmas tradition to have such fails now!

30 Crazy BeReals from people who had an exciting (and sometimes flammable) day

Tue, 11/29/2022 - 14:00

Social media is chock-full of photoshopped bodies, picture-perfect dinners, and expertly photographed vacation selfies. Enter BeReal, an app released in 2020 with the intention of being the opposite of most social media platforms. Instead of curating the perfect photo, everyone posts a photo at the same time (well, when the app isn't crashing, anyway). It captures photos of each person where they are - front and back camera view - in an attempt to, you know, "be real." Sometimes that's a little boring. But other times, people have shared some truly hilarious and crazy moments! 

Scroll down to check out these eye-popping BeReals, then click here to read the most random, galaxy-brain shower thoughts ever. 

'Only a few more mental breakdowns till Christmas': 20 back-to-work memes after the Holiday weekend

Tue, 11/29/2022 - 13:00

How are we expected to just go back to work like this? I mean, you have a tumultuous three-day work week scrambling to get everything in place so you can truly unplug for the Holiday weekend. Then, you finally get those four days off and you have to deal with family tension and drama the whole time? You probably don't even get a good amount of sleep until Saturday or Sunday. And now, after all of that, we're expected to just go back to the office like nothing ever happened? Like we got a taste of what it's like to have a life, and then it's immediately ripped away from us? 

 

How rude! Here we are, now in the middle of a normal five-day work week, and we have absolutely no ability to function because it feels like we're living in a warped world. Will someone step up and admit that this is bizarre? Until that happens, here are twenty back-to-work memes to make you feel less alone.

'I guess you can say his debt has been paid': Guy gets his childhood bully arrested years later

Tue, 11/29/2022 - 11:00

As someone wise once said, Karma is a God. I mean, that same person went on to say Karma is a cat, but enough about Taylor Swift. The point is that karma is real and will bite you where you do not want to be bitten. This story is a prime example of that fact.

 

This thread was posted to Reddit's r/ProRevenge subreddit by u/sarcasticpremed, who shared that they discovered their childhood bully's alias on social media and proceeded to report it and get them arrested. Not only that but the Redditor also got paid for their services. It doesn't really get better than this, does it? Take a moment to picture your childhood bully in prison garb. I don't want to be petty, but the thought certainly does not not bring me joy.

‘You’re gaslighting me so you don't look like the bad guy': Daughter catches mom's boyfriend cheating, epically tells him off and puts him in his place

Tue, 11/29/2022 - 10:30

"You and I both know that you got caught doing something wrong, that you weren't supposed to be doing, and you're gaslighting the absolute sh*t out of me so you don't look like the bad guy."

 

HR busybody demands pregnant assistant is reprimanded for maternity clothing... because the assistant's mother (HR's friend) doesn't approve of her boyfriend

Tue, 11/29/2022 - 10:00

We grow up naively believing that rules exist for a reason. It isn't until we're older that we realize that some rules exist because someone— just…decided that it was so, even if that deciding person wasn't qualified or didn't possess the brainpower and insight necessary to make said decision. This results in a whole lot of stupid rules that are blindly followed just because it's a rule. Meanwhile, said stupid rule followers couldn't make an actually informed, ethical, or empathetic decision to save their life. Bonus points here for the fact that these people are also the ones deciding to question things that they also aren't qualified to be questioning. 

If that's confusing, let's lay it out as such: DON'T question decisions backed by research and years of study; DO question the stupid dress code that Becky in HR made because she was bored one day and needed something to do.

Well, when it comes to stupid rules and policies… reprimanding a pregnant worker for wearing maternity clothing certainly makes the list. Especially when said enforcement of policy is being driven by personal motivation; trying to use your professional position to strong-arm a friend's daughter into talking to her again might just be a fireable offense.

'We need to comply to avoid being excluded': Team leader implies required lunch break location to promote synergy and "cohesion"

Tue, 11/29/2022 - 09:00

Sometimes it's not about the words being spoken; it's about the implication. When your boss suggests a singular place where you should take your lunch break, claims it's not a requirement but goes on to imply that you'll be disadvantaged in the workplace if you disagree… well, you don't really have a choice — do you?

30+ Historical art memes for jesters and jokers

Tue, 11/29/2022 - 08:00

Art: the original meme template. Hundreds of years have passed since some of these paintings were created. Did their creators ever imagine that we would some day be spamming memes onto their artwork that they spent countless hours painting? Telling a 17th century artist that their work was made into a meme would be like making a pilgrim taste a Dorito for the first time. And with a time machine, anything would be possible…but for now, enjoy this delightful collection of art memes!

'The girls were pissed': Parents add new gym to their home but make their four daughters share a bathroom

Tue, 11/29/2022 - 05:00

There's nothing like clueless, arrogant parents! This mother earnestly shared her story via this thread on Reddit's r/AmITheA**hole subreddit and seemed to have no idea how selfish she and her husband have been throughout their recent home renovation project.

 

The couple has four daughters, who have been sharing a bathroom for some time now and have been complaining that it's too much. Finally, when the Redditor and her husband had enough funds to do a renovation, did they add a second bathroom for their kids? Nope. Did they add a gym for the dad? Did they remodel the kitchen? Did they renovate the backyard? You bet they did.

 

This story is just another friendly reminder of two fundamental truths: one, that anyone can be selfish (even your parents); two, that people can be so blindly unaware of their own actions that they post to Reddit thinking they're completely innocent. It's just baffling. For more stories like this, check out this post about a demanding mother as Christmas approaches.

As one poster on r/IDOWORKHERELADY wrote, his mother has some pretty wacky customers at her job as a petrol station manager. This one stubborn Kevin really tested her patience as he demanded to speak to the manager. But luckily, this manager got a handle on the situation and she really had the final revenge
