Group project members refuse to do any of the work, get none of the credit: 'It is almost 40% of the total grade'

Fail Blog - Fri, 05/17/2024 - 15:00

Group projects are the absolute worst—and the absolute worst for a reason. Never up until this point in your life have you had to suffer such a demotivated group of sniveling tagalongs who want nothing more than to cling to the coattails of whatever member is willing to drag them to the next step of their education rather than actually learning something and putting in the work to get there themselves. But, it's not necessarily their fault; the system has taught them that getting to the next step is the only thing that counts—that it's the only thing that's really important—and that what they might learn along the way is just secondary and of little consequence. 

This frustrated medical student shared how they were made to do their group's project, which was worth 40% of their grade, alone. After giving up on trying to coordinate the group, they gave their presentation solo, leaving their group mates high and dry. They turned to this online community to see if they were in the wrong for doing so and awaited readers' responses.

'I opened the door and he looked at me, confused': Pizza delivery guy slides note under customer's door

Fail Blog - Fri, 05/17/2024 - 14:00

This guy was forced to confront a pizza delivery guy… because he tried to give a note to his girlfriend right in front of his eyes! 

Pizza delivery is supposed to be fast and simple. You place your order on an app or by calling the restaurant, the guy drops off your pizza a half hour later, and then you watch a movie while you chow down. It's supposed to be the easy dinner option. Apparently no one told that to this pizza delivery guy, who kept insisting on seeing the woman who lived at this place. 

You can read the entire story below, as well as additional information that u/Pplthrowaway507 wrote in the comments section. It seems entirely possible that his girlfriend has been cheating on him with this delivery dude. Why else would he show up, give a mysterious note, and then insist on speaking to the girlfriend? Maybe he was caught off guard by her boyfriend's presence (maybe he thought she was single!). Other people suggested that regardless of their relationship, what the pizza delivery dude did was way out of line. It was one of those r/AmItheA****** posts that no one can agree on, and until the OP fully reveals what was in this mysterious note, it'll remain unsolved. 

Next up, these workers shared the reasons that they all hate that one colleague, like the guy who can't stop making this "nails on a chalkboard" noise with rows of staples.

‘Cats, Listen Up, You Gotta Get Yourself A Hooman’: Hissterical Catto Explains The Benefits Of Having Two Hooman Pawrents

LOL Cats - Fri, 05/17/2024 - 13:00

It is not often that we high and mighty hoomans look upon ourselves and consider that perhaps we are not the main characters in the movie. And this clever cat has just the perspective on life to help you reconsider your place in the world. We spend our time talking and musing upon all the wonderful things that enter your life when you adopt a cat. But this cat has flipped the tables and is trying to make us hoomans realize that cats are the true winners in the hooman-feline relationship. And he is not all too wrong.

Whether it is that we financially back all of their fanciful feline activities, or that they can easily end up with two of us, or that we endlessly dote on them, or that we pick up their turds with little to no complaint. This cute kitty fully appreciates just how good he has it, and in all honesty, we are pretty darn jealous of his sweet set up. If only we could find a superior species that would adopt and feed us…

Ungrateful bride sends wrong text badmouthing bridesmaid, bridesmaid sabotages the bachelorette: 'I cancelled the reservations and didn't mention it'

Fail Blog - Fri, 05/17/2024 - 13:00

People who badmouth their friends over text better be careful with their phones! Otherwise, you might accidentally send a petty message to the very person you're gossiping about. 

Personally, I am guilty of this phenomenon. My friend jokes that I shouldn't even have a phone after all the times I have accidentally texted the wrong person. Most of these situations were harmless; I am not always gossiping. That being said, one time I was on my way to brunch with an old friend I hadn't seen in years but felt obliged to hang out with after running into them on the street. I was two blocks away when I texted my best friend that I was about to get brunch with this annoying person followed by the word "ugh." Well, it turns out I didn't send that text to my best friend; I sent it to the annoying person. I was then forced to walk into the restaurant as if I hadn't just completely revealed my feelings about spending time with her. I managed to come up with a nonsense excuse as to what I meant when I said "ugh," but it didn't really work considering we never got brunch again. However, I suppose that's what I wanted all along, so maybe I did win in the end.

Keep scrolling below to see what happened to this ungrateful bride when her bridesmaid received a text about her from the bride herself that she wasn't supposed to read. For more stories like this, check out this post about a Karen customer's tantrum at a drive-thru. 

‘What Do You Mean You’re Going To Work?’: 20 Funny Feline Memes For The Pawrents Who Regret Leaving Their Fur Baby At Home

LOL Cats - Fri, 05/17/2024 - 12:00

Even though it is Friday and Caturday is waiting for us in a mere matter of hours, leaving your feline fur baby at home all day while you go to work is no easy choice. And while, you could argue that you are leaving them alone for a somewhat noble cause, you know, the going out to gain financial worth, so that you can keep feeding them and have a house over your head. It is nonetheless no easy task on the hooman heart. So to help comfort you, we have made this list of funny feline memes for all you pawrents who regret leaving your cat child at home.

From the father pawrent who found a very creative way to feed both his feline and hooman babies at the same time, to the clever catto who learned that the sound of his hooman's alarm marks the purrfect time to snuggle with his pawrent, to the feline pawrents who for some reason wanted to further facilitate their cat child's zoomies and built a maze under the bed. These hilarious cat memes are a sweet reminder of what is waiting for us at home when we are done with our working days.

'They charged me $500 for leaving a glass cup on the BBQ': 20+ HOA horror stories

Fail Blog - Fri, 05/17/2024 - 12:00

When you want to be charged several hundred dollars for decorating your home as you wish, the HOA is your organization. These notorious corrupt groups seem to love handing out massive fines for tiny little violations. Home Owner's Associations, or HOAs, are groups of people who are supposed to look out for the well-being of their community. But instead, they seem to spend an awful lot of time messing around. 

For example, one person's HOA horror story involved them painting their house a new color. The HOA came by their house to complain that this freshly painted house had to be coated in a whole new layer of paint. Why? Oh, well because the house was painted a greenish-brown instead of the "yucca brown" the HOA required. That story, which you can read below, was also one of those cases where corruption was ruining the HOA for everyone. It turns out that someone was getting kickbacks for repainting the houses! How very shady of them. 

After you check out these horrible home owner's associations, read about the bridezilla who insisted one of her bridesmaids change almost everything about her appearance, with friends adding that the bewildered bridesmaid "was being stubborn." 

'Went in for cilantro, came out with a kitten': Wonderful Wholesome Woman Finds Teeny-Tiny Tabby in Walmart, Then Gives the Rescue an Adoption Makeover

LOL Cats - Fri, 05/17/2024 - 11:00

Hey, I Can Has-ers. Don't you just hate it when you go into the store for one thing, and then leave with twenty other things you didn't actually need? Usually we walk out with snacks and other sweet things that we didn't plan on buying, but the wholesome woman in this post walked out with a teeny tiny tabby kitten! She was shopping for cat stuff at Walmart when three college students approached her, saying that they found the kitten abandoned outside their dorms and they couldn't keep it.

What do you do when someone presents you with a helpless kitten that has nowhere else to go? Well, you take it of course! She took the tiny fur baby home, got them to the vet, and cleaned up them up to take them to an adoption center. If this awwdorable cat story doesn't renew your faith in humanity, we don't know what will!

Company offers fully remote work in exchange for 24/7 monitoring of all home network traffic: 'Why would a company even want to bother with this?'

Fail Blog - Fri, 05/17/2024 - 11:00

Something shady this way comes!

Let's preface this with the fact that several folks who work in IT have already deemed this a nightmare in the making. This company thought it would be a good idea to give in to employees' requests for fully remote work, but there was a catch. That catch was that the company would provide all work-from-home employees with a router and a document for them to sign that would permit IT to monitor all of their at-home network traffic 24/7. That's right. We're not even talking about work hours only, though that would still be an invasion of privacy. 

The offer of working from home entirely is certainly enticing, but in this case, at what cost? Many folks in the comments section shared their skepticism and feelings that these employers are definitely up to something fishy beyond monitoring their employees' work progress. Keep scrolling below for the full story and for the best reactions. For more tales of workplace drama, feel free to take a look at this post about an employee who finally snapped at their manager after constantly having to make them coffee at the end of every shift.

'I regret taking this job': Employees Share the Least Enjoyable Jobs to Work At This Year

Fail Blog - Fri, 05/17/2024 - 10:00

Every job becomes tedious over time, especially if you're working 72 hours a week. But which jobs in particular are the worst to work at, and why? Employees get candid in a Reddit thread when asked this exact question. If you were to ask me, I'd say that working in the customer service industry is the worst. Long hours, meh pay, power tripping bosses are all a recipe for disaster. Oh, and don't forget the rowdy and entitled customers who honestly, need to check themself before they go out in public. It just makes you hate humanity. I always thought that people working as veterinarians might like their jobs, but when one person below described why it's absolutely soul-sucking, I changed my mind. I can see now how caring for animals is a double-edged sword. Scroll down to read what employees all around the world had to say about which jobs are the worst to work at, and when you're done reading, check out this grandma who used her spare key to enter her kid's apartment, only to receive a not so warm welcome from her entire family.

Prospective employee gets burned after 7 rounds of interviews when the company claims the job listing was ‘incorrect’, offering $70,000 less than promised: ‘Classic bait and switch’

Fail Blog - Fri, 05/17/2024 - 09:00

Interviewing is exhausting. Although it seems simple to submit your resume to every company you're interested in, each business has a customized portal where you have to manually input all the same information. And nowadays if you even get past the application process, you're likely in for a rollercoaster ride of multiple rounds of interviewing, spouting the same information that can be found in your resume to 10 different (likely incompetent) C-level bosses. 

In an attempt to weed-out the bad eggs, business have made interviewing excruciating. 

For the prospective employee in our next story, the interview process went far beyond 'excruciating' and straight into the badlands of insurmountable disappointment. After 7 rounds of interviewing and months of preparation, the original poster (OP) found himself in the final rounds of the process. With only the prospects of the $100-150k salary range which was promised on the original job listing, OP was thrilled to make it to the final rounds–except, all that was waiting for him at the finish line was a measly $80,000 offer.

25 Silly Pics Of Startled Cats Getting Spooked By The Most Hissterical Things

LOL Cats - Fri, 05/17/2024 - 09:00

One thing that you learn over your time as a cat owner is that cats… react to things in ways that you would not expect. When some ameowzing big thing happens, like the aurora borealis last week… our cats don't care about the northern lights. But when someone rings the doorbell unexpectedly or when someone sneezes or something or when someone does anything at all that our cats don't see coming from a mile away, they get spooked as if they've seen a ghost. 

And we learn to love the inconsistency. We love that cats get startled by literally nothing. We love that cats have such silly reactions to such silly things. It's part of what makes being a cat owner so fascinating. We can watch these little dudes and dudettes do absolutely nothing for hours and hours and have the time of our lives.

'The banana cream pie cookie "tasted like a pie"': 15+ Absurd reasons people wanted their food refunded

Fail Blog - Fri, 05/17/2024 - 08:00

Some customers don't have any sense at all. No one knows that better than people who work in customer service jobs, like retail work and food service. 

Just ask u/SpiteChickens7. They shared two stories from their gig at a popular cookie spot. On this particular shift, they had a person come in and insist on a refund. Why? Well that's because they'd bought a couple of chocolate cake cookies. Instead of eating both of them, they'd tossed one to their dog! Unsurprisingly, that chocolate cookie made the pup sick. Isn't it common knowledge that chocolate can make dogs very ill? Apparently not, because this person not only wasted a cookie and upset their dog's tummy, but they also demanded a refund on that cookie

In the comments, people commiserated with u/SpiteChickens7. Some told stories from their own experiences with the cookie chain, while others revealed the silliest reasons customers at other restaurants insisted on getting their money back. It's never a dull moment in customer service! 

Next up, these people couldn't make it through their first day of work without getting fired, like one fast-food worker who "just wanted to see how many free burgers he could eat before getting canned."

Tenant and Landlord team up to take down odious Property Management company, claiming almost $10k in penalties: 'My landlord was on my side during the court hearing'

Fail Blog - Fri, 05/17/2024 - 07:00

While renting, it's generally up to your landlord to maintain the premises and repair anything that breaks. But if you've ever dealt with a landlord, you'll know that they're often reluctant to do so, regarding any such request with disdain and thinly veiled hostility and insinuation at the fact that you're somehow responsible for their 20-year-old dishwasher breaking a week after you moved in. So, over time, you get in the habit of just doing things yourself, even if they're not your responsibility, or just making do with things how they are in an effort to maintain minimal contact to draw minimal attention to your tenancy in a vain attempt to keep the landlord from increasing your rent (again.)

Of course, this isn't a great outcome for the property, which is why good landlords want to be notified of issues so that they don't become bigger ones, and they don't really want you undertaking your own work unless you muck something up… Unless they trust you to do things correctly, just as this landlord did before they appointed one of those terrible property management companies to manage the property for them, throwing a spanner in the works of what had been a great relationship.

Now, the arrangement was strange to begin with; it seems that this tenant had arranged to help the landlord upgrade the unit they were renting—which was really just a converted garage adjacent to the landlord's actual rental home. They upgraded the unit through the years on their own dime until the property management company took over. But when the property management repeatedly failed to follow through on maintenance, it set the stage for them to get that money back.

Utterly Perturbed Cats Who Have Had More Than Enough Of Your Human Nonsense

LOL Cats - Fri, 05/17/2024 - 07:00

Hello there, adorable cat enthusiasts and faithful readers of ICanHasCheezburger content. Masters of the side-eye and the slow blink, cats have an uncanny ability to express annoyance with adorable ferocity. Their furrowed brows, sometimes accompanied by a flattened ear or a twitching tail, turn a simple inconvenience – an empty food dish, perhaps, or a pesky vacuum cleaner – into a hilarious drama.

We can't help but be charmed by their indignation. Their tiny, disgruntled faces are a world away from a human frown, making their frustration strangely endearing. Who can resist giggling at a cat who looks like they're contemplating the deepest injustices of the universe, all because their human dared to move their favorite napping spot? These miniature Napoleons of the living room keep us entertained with their perpetual air of put-upon dignity, reminding us that even the most regal creatures have their limits. The cats pictured here today are utterly perturbed and have had more than enough of your human nonsense.

Company forces job applicant to interview again after already he accepted their offer: 'I was shocked'

Fail Blog - Fri, 05/17/2024 - 06:00

Job interviews are not easy, and they take up a lot of your time. Not just the interview time itself but all of the prep work and practice can take up a lot of mental capacity. And if you're interviewing for multiple jobs at the same time, it's basically a full-time job. In this story, this job candidate was doing just that. After receiving an offer from one of the job prospects, be politely asked for two days to consider the offer before giving the hiring manager an answer. After careful consideration, the applicant decided to accept the offer presented. But, he was in the midst of being recruited for other jobs, so he declined them all and gave the good news to his new employer. Or so he thought. In those two days, the company claimed they had begun to consider another candidate, and now, the original offer is off the table. If this candidate still wants the job, he will have to interview again. Given really no choice, the original poster took to the internet to see if anyone had ever had this happen to them before. Keep reading for the full story and the discussion amongst other workers.

Just in case it wasn't clear, this situation is a major red flag for job seekers. Check out these other 25+ Red Flags in a Job Interview That Scream 'Do Not Work Here'.
