36 Feisty Felines Assuming the Role of Your Superior 'Su-purr-visor,' Ensuring Top-Notch Kitty Quality Control

LOL Cats - Fri, 09/29/2023 - 09:00

Cats rule over their kingdoms with an iron paw and judgmental stares, and that goes for any jobs that happen within their kingdom as well. Sometimes they just sit there and su-purr-vise, and other times, they have to get up and intervene when they can't take it anymore. Naturally, nothing is ever good enough for them, but they can't help it, they have very high standards. Look out, cats with jobs, your feisty feline su-purr-visors are on the way to do some kitty quality control!

Whether they're assisting your with baking or sharing their meow-stery of electrical engineering, these purr-fessional felines are not letting anything slip by their sleepy grasp. They may or may not fall asleep on the job, but never fear, they will let you know if you've done something wrong. Give them your best work, or else you'll regret getting a meow-thful from them!

'I was the lucky person tasked with "printing the intranet"': 30+ Employees share their funniest facepalm moments at the workplace

Fail Blog - Fri, 09/29/2023 - 08:00

What would you do if your boss asked you to print the whole internet page by page? Or what if they asked you to water the plants while it was literally raining outside? These people shared stories of the absolute dumbest things their bosses have ever done---including those two examples above! 

Some bosses rely heavily on their employees to keep things running. For example, in some offices, the assistants will be the first ones in and the last ones out, tasked with answering phones, working with clients, or keeping the office clean and stocked. Then bosses will stroll into the office around noon with questions about how things are being done. No matter if the office is working perfectly well---some managers think they need to implement their own changes in order to prove they're good at bossing people around. But if your office is already running smoothly, and the boss's ideas make your life harder, it's hard not to facepalm at your supervisor's decisions. 

And, as you can read below, these bosses span a variety of industries. Some people just fail upward, I suppose. 

Check out these dumb-as-a-rock bosses below. Then, check out these people who had one job, and still couldn't get it right.

'Call the police... see what happens': Landlord blows his gasket when ex-tenant moves out and takes the appliances she purchased with her

Fail Blog - Fri, 09/29/2023 - 07:00

Landlords can be the scum of the Earth. Especially when they hike up the rent 10%, paint over your electrical outlets, and are clearly under the impression that the entire world exists for their profit. They'll scam their tenants out of anything if it means making an extra buck– At the risk of losing our residence, is there any way for us tenants to retaliate? So even for tenants who contribute a ton to the property and turn their rent check in on time every month, a landlord just sees you as a walking/talking dollar sign with opposable thumbs and an email address. 

In this case, a girl had lived at her apartment for several years, faithfully paying her landlord and keeping the place in check. She even decided to buy her own washer/dryer set because of her messy job. But when she moved out and into her boyfriend's place, she decided to take her appliances with her. She did pay for them after all.

Except the landlord apparently thought that thousands of dollars of nice appliances would be a tasty little parting gift for himself once she was headed out the door. Scroll onward to read more about a landlord who was up in arms when his tenant took her property with her when she moved out. For more, read on about another shady homeowner who tried to scam his prospective buyers, losing £12,000+ on his listing price when they pulled their offer.

'OK, I'll take more breaks then': Manager tells worker not to drink at their desk, worker leaves their desk more often

Fail Blog - Fri, 09/29/2023 - 06:00

Employers are determined to replace workers with machines, and, sure, automation and specialized machinery lead to more efficiency, but it's not like the productive workers see any of that increased cash flow anyway. 

While employers might hope to one day replace certain roles with automation, AI hasn't come that far yet. Just ask anyone who has gotten stuck talking to an AI on a "customer care" line or ended up messaging a robot that has no idea how to solve your problem and keeps redirecting you to the wrong place. Honestly, there's not really anything "caring" about wasting your customers' time by forcing them to navigate through a poorly automated bureaucratic layer, all to save a few dollars on wages that you had already reduced to minums by outsourcing to countries with no employment protections.

But, while humans might be able to do things that the robots still can't, they, unfortunately, have other functions they need to perform to maintain homeostasis, like drinking water, eating, and going to the bathroom. These are all things that are the ire of oppressive managers.

'She HAD to maintain her dominance in the workplace': Office tyrant tries to sweep her own mistakes under the rug, her team gets her fired

Fail Blog - Fri, 09/29/2023 - 05:00

People on power trips are just asking to make enemies in the workplace. Nine times out of ten, it is almost always easier to just be kind. To those of you who have previously fallen privy to the psychological effects of being in a position of power within the workplace hierarchy, do not doubt that everyone around you knows that you're in charge. There is no need to assert your authority any further when everyone already knows. It's not only redundant, but it's a waste of time, energy, and often resources as well.

This office tyrant couldn't bear to see her assistant have a nicer tech setup than she did, and therefore ordered the tech department to build a better setup for her and then had the company pay for it. Unfortunately, this power trip only scratches the surface of what Susannah (who could also be named Karen at this point) tried to pull off. When an important presentation was scheduled that this Redditor needed to attend, Susannah insisted that OP restock supplies instead, which led to a confrontation with her regional manager. After she made a scene, she officially made enemies with the exact folks she should want to be loyal to her. Keep scrolling below to see what happened next and how they got Susannah ousted.

Shady Homeowner Loses £12,000+ on the Sale of His House After Trying to Pull a Fast One on Buyers With a Irrefutable Offer; They Find Somewhere Else to Live

Fail Blog - Fri, 09/29/2023 - 04:00

Buying and selling homes is a fun chess game played by the rich. Regular people don't play by the same rules in life, so usually we get pushed out of the market, but sometimes, a regular Schmoe gets the upper hand on the feudal land owners trying to make a quick buck on a short sale. When it comes to the housing market, there are some lines that you just don't cross and some rules you just can't break– lest you get your sale snubbed before it ever takes flight. 

In this case, a regular family was looking to buy their dream home in an upscale neighborhood. After years of saving and crunching numbers, they knew their budget and were prepared to make a fair offer for the house they would raise their family in. This suburban dreamscape was quickly put to rest when they found out (after making an illustrious offer) that the seller had lied to their faces up front. What other secrets might be hiding in this estate? 

Scroll to read more about how some regular folks stuck it to the man after finding out about some shady dealings behind the closed doors of the real estate office. For more stories of people sticking it to the man, check out this tale of workplace revenge where an IT support guy watches his company squander $100k for the sake of saving $50/month on company phones.

LOL Cats - Thu, 09/28/2023 - 20:00

Sitting down with a bowl of cereal on a Saturday morning to watch cartoons was the peak of our lives and we didn't even know it. Although the cereal was probably pre-diabeticly sugary and didn't contribute to our nutrition, it made us happy– just like cat memes do! As an adult, we know what's good for us and even when we have a massive time waster in front of us, sometimes the mood calls for a little self care. Treat yourself to a bowl full of wholesome cat memes that'll fortify your soul more than any childhood memory could. These kitties were born to please and with whiskers like these, how could they not? Cats are always a mood booster for their hoomans, even when they're a pain in the rear. Even when cats are cuckoo and running amok around the house, we still find a moment to cherish their tiny toe beans, pet their soft fur, and cuddle them from time to time. 

So if you're a cat person who's running on empty this week, the best way to refuel is with your daily dose of fortified cat memes that may (or may not) help lower your cholesterol. Scroll onward for a delicious bowl full of meowgically delicious cat memes that could charm the socks off of a tabby cat. Start every morning purrfectly - sign up to our daily newsletter!

'I'm a victim': Store manager with zero tolerance for Karen customers repeatedly tells woman to 'get out'

Fail Blog - Thu, 09/28/2023 - 16:00

Employees should always be allowed to stand up for themselves. In many workplaces, employees are expected to let customers do whatever they want. "The customer is always right," is the motto. But as you know if you've worked in retail lately, customers aren't always right---instead, certain customers are riled up and ready to take their frustrations out on the next employee they see. 

This woman took her anger way too far in this video recorded by @davenewworld_2. While the video leaves out a lot of context, we can see a customer screaming at an employee, who is videoing the interaction. It's a good thing the employee is recording, because the things this woman says are totally unbelievable. Why did she think it was a good idea to threaten this employee with serial killers?! 

You can see the look on the customer's face as the worker starts to yell "Get out!" repeatedly---the customer realizes she's gone too far with this stunt. She's legitimately threatened the store's manager, and she's not going to be served. Some people just choose to ruin their own days, and this cranky customer chose screaming and chaos over a simple retail interaction. Check out the entire video below. 

'All the blood drained from her face': Actress learns production staff she treated poorly decide whether or not she keeps her job

Fail Blog - Thu, 09/28/2023 - 15:00

It's really not that hard to treat others with the barest amount of decency and respect. In fact, it takes more energy to be mean, to the point where you almost have to go out of your way to do it. For that reason, it literally makes zero logical sense when someone goes the extra distance to be unkind, even if it's just in a subtle sort of way: a sneering lip or upturned nose that lets you know that they think themselves to be above you.

This poster writes that they used to work in television production and were responsible for selecting on-screen talent. As is common in the cut-throat entertainment industry, it wasn't uncommon for actors and actresses to treat them with indifference if they didn't know who they were and what their role was. One particular actress went out of her way to treat the poster with disdain, belittling and being generally disrespectful towards them. But, when the actress one day realized who the poster had associations with, she came to regret her behavior, blanching when she realized who was directly responsible for her continued employment.

You see stories like this all the time, though it's usually told in the form of a near-folklorish anecdote where a candidate going in for a job interview refuses to hold the door open for an individual, only to go on to realize that that individual is the one hiring them. 

Read on to see the poster's original tale below, along with some of the responses it received in the thread where it was originally posted.

'Fantastic, please close my account': Bankers inform travelling worker he hit his withdrawal limit, worker calls their bluff

Fail Blog - Thu, 09/28/2023 - 14:00

This person had some odd restrictions on their bank account. It wasn't an issue until one day, he needed to take out lot of money all at once. 

As a South Korean worker employed by an American company, this person has a few restrictions on their bank account. U/luther_williams shares that unlike American banks, he has a limit of how much money he can take from his account each day. It's not even very much money: only about $216 per day, which is around 250,000 won. 

With the way inflation has bumped up prices in America, that can barely buy you a month's worth of groceries. There are a lot of times you need to take out that much money for big purchases, and it's pretty inconvenient of a bank to set such a small limit for their customers. How are you going to hold all of a person's money, and then tell them they can only have little bits of cash at a time? 

Check out the OP's story down below. Then, check out the tale of two movers who got stuck with a crabby client who wanted all of her belongings moved in two hours flat.
