"What Paranormal Experience Changed You from a Skeptic to a Believer?" Viral Medium has People Sharing Their Spookiest Stories

Thu, 08/11/2022 - 11:30

Not everyone believes in ghost stories. They're just tall tales adults told us as kids to give us a wholesome spook or maybe to keep us away from somewhere/something dangerous. Cryptid tales, demonic encounters, unexplainable experiences, whatever it was, you can't just convince anybody to believe. Well, whether you believe in ghost stories or not, there are people out there who do and it's usually because of something spooky that happened to them. A viral medium on TikTok who is constantly sharing her own scary stories, called upon her viewers to share their own from when they were skeptics but it changed them to believe. They were thrust into a terrifying circumstance that forced them to start believing. We've shortened these stories down to give you just the nitty gritty spookiest parts of these stories. All these people swear these experiences are true, even if they themselves don't know how to explain it. Sometimes things happen that just don't make any realistic sense, but that doesn't mean they didn't happen… And you know, it's said that once you hear a true ghost story, it's more likely that you will now encounter a ghost yourself… So continue on with caution. 

Malicious Compliance: Restaurant Worker Told to Reconsider Having Two Jobs, Quits

Thu, 08/11/2022 - 11:00

This worker was working a second job as a greeter at a popular restaurant before the manager told them that they needed to reconsider having two jobs. When they paused to reconsider this as requested, they decided that the job at the restaurant was the one worth giving up. They went into their next shift in their street clothes and announced that they would be quitting and not coming back.

As much as we love to side with employees in these types of stories, a couple of things that stick out to me with this one that give me pause. First, the original poster admits they were consistently late to shifts at the restaurant… This leads one to think that the manager had a point about the original poster's ability to work two jobs. People with experience in the service industry will know what I'm talking about here… If they weren't showing up on time, you're just making it harder on the other workers who have to pick up the slack, and it clearly wasn't working out. It doesn't matter if it's your first, second, third, or fourth job; you've made an individual commitment to that organization and need to honor it.

Then, quitting without notice, or even finishing their shift, just because they've been asked to reconsider having two jobs? Pssh, come on. This is one instance where the employer was probably better off without them.

This thread was posted to Reddit's r/MaliciousCompliance subreddit by u/JJayHawk84 where they shared their story with the popular sub.

Commenters felt differently than I do here and voiced their support in the comments. 

"Good on you," said Own-Cupcake7586. "Employers who don't value their employees don't deserve to keep them."

"But how will you survive the rest of your life without free salad and breadsticks? /s" quipped dwillphx.

What do you think? Was the employer in the wrong? Did they have a point here?

Funniest Major Dating App Fails and Memes We Saw This Past Week

Thu, 08/11/2022 - 10:00

Dating apps are for people who are ready for the unexpected. There are definitely certain things one can expect to see while swiping endlessly, a couple of hotties, a couple of uncomfortable messages, a couple of catfishes perhaps, and a couple of people refusing to show their face. Sure, we become desensitized to such occurrences, but often you come across a fail that is so strong that you are left with no choice but to screenshot and share. And honestly, we see nothing wrong with that, as long as you keep the person's identity decently hidden. You don't have to include the photo, although they can often be cringy. People usually tend to go crazy in the written section of dating apps.

 

Some people overshare, some people come off as super angry for no reason, some people have spelling mistakes, and some people just clearly need help. But hey, we've all been there. Now, without further ado, let's get into these dating app fails.

The Choosing-est Beggars of the Week and Their Stupid Demands (Aug 11, 2022)

Thu, 08/11/2022 - 08:00

There are a whole lotta people in this world who want and think that they are entitled to something for nothing. They want everything and are willing to give very little in return. These entitled individuals and choosing beggars are quintessential narcissists and have very little, to no, regard for other people. In their world, they are the main character and are the only thing that matters. All of the rest of us are just NPCs who are here to give them random stuff for free and unearned rewards for side-quests.

"I also jack my price when people start asking if they can get something or nothing," Tweakywolf responded in a thread about the first choosing beggar on this list.

And they're not wrong; one of the best ways to deal with these types of people is to charge them more for their stupid ways. It's nothing worth getting mad over, they aren't worth the time and energy. Have a little fun with it and make a game out of dealing with these entitled people instead.

Greatest Hits: IT Head Steals Important Email Address, Sets Off Chain of Events That Get Them Fired

Thu, 08/11/2022 - 07:00

An IT Head saw fit to swipe a long-held email address which set off a domino effect that led to their excusal from their position. What is it with power that makes it go straight to some people's heads? So many new managers see fit to exert their dominance over their subordinates as soon as they have a shred of power to wield.

This has been one of the top stories that we have seen come out of Reddit's r/talesfromtechsupport subreddit this year and, as such, it was well worth a revisit. The thread was originally posted to Reddit's r/talesfromtechsupport subreddit by u/Lorix_In_Oz. They shared their story with the title "When a new IT department head steals the prestige e-mail address from long time employee and lives to regret it."

Readers started some discussion in the comments.

"If someone ever said 'It receives all the critical alerts and I'm happy to deal with them,' why the f--k would you want to get involved in that," said someonehasmygamertag.

"Bc they crave attention that they can not achieve on their own merits, I'd say..." responded SirIsildur.

"Nothing better than giving someone enough rope to hang themselves if they ask for it," commented bkaiser85.

"Glad "Joe" got his email back but gosh the current email address rule is ridiculous. Is department AND country code really necessary?" queried emmerzed.

"It made sense in the sense that you could gauge from the e-mail address which region the person was coming from. By the time I joined the company had multiple global offices as well as remote staff in different countries, so it made sense to have an e-mail address like joe.bloggs@it.us.company.com or tom.smith@sales.uk.company.com," responded the original poster.

Wed, 08/10/2022 - 13:00

Work is an interesting place. Some days you might find that you don't mind your job at all. You got a nice night of sleep the night before and you realize, hey, it isn't too bad to feel productive every once in a while. A little routine never hurt nobody.

But one of the best ways to give yourself a break from what feels like a never-ending work day is to look at some silly work memes. And guess what? We have a plethora of them to share with you. So sit back, relax and enjoy these very unprofessional work memes. Perhaps you'll relate, or not, either way we'll keep sharing them with you each week.

Entitled Marketplace Karen Loses It

Wed, 08/10/2022 - 11:00

After listing their dining set on Facebook Marketplace this would-be seller didn't expect that they'd be accosted by a wild marketplace Karen. This Karen was feral for the set and didn't appreciate not receiving instant replies to her requests; she proceeded to irrationally lose her marbles with a string of entitled messages to the seller. 

We've said it before, and we'll say it again… Selling used goods on Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, or any other free equivalent platform is pretty easy… but dealing with people is incredibly hard.

This thread was shared on Reddit's r/EntitledB*tch subreddit by Redditor u/QueasyTraditions, who shared the screenshots in a thread titled "Angry Facebook Marketplace Person." At the same time, it remains unclear whether this was their original content; we will attribute credit to them.

The Top Tinder Moments of the Month (August 10, 2021)

Wed, 08/10/2022 - 08:00

Welcome to the return of "Top Tinder Moments," a collection of some of the best and worst of online dating. 

It's not secret that online datingis a tumultuous experience rife with the suffering and strife of dealing with wildly unstable individuals and egotistical, entitled maniacs. 

Often, any attempt at real or casual conversation is mercilessly interrupted by some rude suggestion or demand. It's bizarre what some people think is grounds for discussion. 

There seems to have been an even greater number of downright rude responses and unprovoked insults this month. Some people don't know how to behave reasonably or treat other people.

Take Travis in #15. Why on earthwould you offer yourself as a dog lover "taking dog mom applications" only to respond like that when someone gives you an on-topic opening line?

Enjoy this edition of Top Tinder Moments. This edition has some of the hottest trending Tinder memes, profiles, and conversations floating around online over the last month. As always, there's a heavy dose of fresh content, but the occasional 'classic' tends to inevitably pops up too.

 

Arrogant Boss Tries to Trick Worker Into Extending Notice Period, So He Walks Out Almost Naked

Wed, 08/10/2022 - 07:00

When this arrogant boss tried to trick this teen into extending their notice period and demanded they return their work uniform, the teen had put up with enough and walked out of the store in their boxers. This surprised the boss so much that it was reportedly a story that they told for years afterward.

This thread was posted to r/MaliciousCompliance by u/sominik92, who shared their story to the popular sub with the title "Can't quit my job if I'm taking the uniform home? Guess I'm leaving naked."

Readers were sure to share their disdain for the boss's attitude in the comments.

"Imagine being so up your own a$$ that you drunkenly rant about a teen you exploited getting sick of your shit and quitting...for years after it happened," said Disig.

"Should've run out past the customers screaming, 'No, I won't work naked. Screw you old pervert!'" suggested CoderJoe1.

"Thinking back I wish I had been that clever ahah," responded the original poster.


 

Guy Loses It When His Date Orders, Then Eats, A Sizeable Salad

Tue, 08/09/2022 - 11:00

A woman received this message from her first date telling her that he thought they were incompatible because of the way she had eaten her salad during the date. Her date explained that the way she ate her salad was "greedy" and wasn't "ladylike."

Screenshots of the text exchange were posted to Reddit's r/mildlyinfuriating subreddit by Redditor u/Ryanfunroe. It's pretty safe to say that these text messages are not their original content and have been reposted by the user, but we were unable to verify this. 

It's incredible, the arbitrary rules that we have somehow managed to create for first dates. What's wrong with just being yourself and seeing if things work out? Why have we invented all of these insane hoops to jump through? I mean, sure, it's important to make sure you put your best foot forward for any first impression. Still, we tend to make things like this so needlessly complicated, especially when it comes to dating.

Readers expressed their resentment toward the date's attitude in the comments.

"God forbid you eat like a normal person and require energy to survive," said Sexy_McSexypants.

"Hmm, that block button lookin' good," remarked CPTGojira. 

"As good as the salad?" another user responded.

"'You was pose to havw butterflies' - just this sentence alone would make me want to never speak to this person again," user sheenuts pointed out.

Glassblower Gets Revenge on Blatantly Misogynistic Customer By Sneakily Making His Order in His Wife's Favorite Color

Tue, 08/09/2022 - 10:00

Coming across horrible customers is just part of the trade when you run your own business. Knowing how to handle these kinds of customers is quite the art form that takes years of practice to perfect. And then being able to gracefully handle these rude customers AND get justice served while do so? Well that's straight up a super power. This glassblower reenacted a moment where she was able to do just that. She received an order that was so glaringly, obviously, blatantly misogynistic that she had to take action. Her little sneaky tactic was able to get some thoroughly satisfying justice served. 

Update: Arrogant CEO Demands IT Contractor Serve Him A Cup of Coffee, Contractor Walks Out

Tue, 08/09/2022 - 08:00

This IT guy is retired but still contracts with his old employer, and he was called in to help one of their clients with their "ancient inventory system." When the client's CEO sauntered in demanding a cup of joe from the IT guy, things were about to go very poorly.

This lengthy tale was told by Redditor u/ShelLuser42, who shared their story to the r/Idontworkherelady subreddit, a growing subreddit where people share stories where they have been mistaken for an employee. Typically these tales involve Karens accosting other random customers and demanding service, but occasionally these power-hungry suited types pop up in a story or two.

Their initial post was well received, prompting them to provide another update a few days later detailing some of the aftermath. This second thread is represented as "The Fallout" section of the story on items #18 and #19.

Sergeant Major Ruins VIP Event With Their Stupid Demands

Tue, 08/09/2022 - 07:00

This military audio engineer was told by an outranking Sergeant Major that their help wasn't necessary for setting up a VIP ceremony. They did as they were told and "f-ed off" which led to the ceremony being a disaster.

This thread was posted on Reddit's r/maliciouscompliance subreddit by the audio engineer, Redditor u/tiredbut. They shared their story on the popular subreddit with the title "Don't want to listen to me? Okay, enjoy ruining a VIP event."

Readers appreciated the story and said so in the comments while other military personnel shared their own stories.

"Heck, military or not, this is a perfectly typical audio tech story," said Aaron_Purr. "Happens with regularity in sound-world. The malicious compliance was delicious."

"Brings back so many memories," shared whiteswampoak. "As an E-4, I was once dismissed when I explained that setting up about a million dollars of sensitive electronic equipment on the bare ground wasn't a good idea. In perfect weather, this should have not been on the ground, but even worse that the location was in a depression, with several days of storms in the forecast. In my case, sanity finally prevailed though it took a lot of work to find the right person to press this issue up the chain, cause what does an E-4 possibly know?"

The Most Entitled People of the Week (August 8, 2022)

Mon, 08/08/2022 - 11:00

Some people are beyond ordinary entitlement. It's hard to say how they ended up this way, but it's safe to say that it probably has something to do with upbringing and the expectation that a lot of us had set for ourselves that we are the main character and the world is there to serve us. The brutal reality then becomes that many people are far too shallow to self-reflect or consider others. Couple this with social media, "pick me" attitudes, general narcissism, and sociopathy, and you have yourself the freshly stewed sh!t sandwich that is interacting with other people. 

"Entitlement is a key component of narcissism," says Darden Professor Sean Martin in his study on the subject. "It's basically the belief that you deserve more — more resources, more consideration, more privileges, and rewards — than other people. Narcissists and entitled individuals can make good first impressions. They are confident in their abilities and skills, which means that they tend to emerge into leadership roles. The problem is that they are also selfish; they make subpar team players and collaborators because their behaviors and decision-making are geared to serving their self-interest."1

It's not all bad, and it's not as if everyone is terrible, but it's undoubtedly the bad ones that stick out in your mind. Every time someone boldly cuts a queue or uses the shoulder to pass in traffic, it's a cruel reminder that these ticks and parasites of society exist. Unfortunately, due to relatively little consequence for these low-level offenders, nothing is done to correct the problem. On the contrary, prevalent practices such as "The customer is always right" feed into these people's delusional realities. So, they continue going about their days being generally sh*tty peopleand making the world all the worse for the rest of us.

Enjoy this week's collection of entitled individuals and let them remind you of the eternal suffering of your existence.

Fail Blog's Top Memes of the Week (August 8, 2022)

Mon, 08/08/2022 - 09:00

Welcome to another edition of our top meme list, all of which have been shared on our Facebook page. We've made it three weeks in a row, which is nothing short of a miracle for our weekly list series.

Here's a collection of some of my favorite memes, but as usual, we're just going to say they're the "top" memes instead. Just letting you know so that when you see "top" being thrown around like it's candy from a piñata, we all know that we're on the same page.

We're also cutting out the whole "meme meister" thing this week because, even though I thought it was funny for the first couple of weeks, I've grown gratingly tired of it. So, we're retiring our dear friend the Burgermeister Meisterburger and using a sterilized list name instead.

The hope is that, as it was in weeks before, the gods of Facebook and Google will decide that this week's list deserves distribution.

For now, it's enough that you lads are enjoying these. So keep scrolling to peruse this week's collection, and please save the ones you like to your collections and share the memery around.
