IT employee maliciously complies to new boss's autocratic dress code: '[I wore] hi-vis polo shirts'

Fail Blog - Mon, 04/01/2024 - 07:00

Appearances are important—in any part of life. The first impression someone makes of you will largely be based on how they perceive you before you've ever even had any interaction with them. This, of course, is one of the first things that you'll be told by your parents, guardians, or other older persons who have a vested interest in your life and success. You'll likely hear and read this advice repeatedly throughout your life from teachers, bosses, strangers—and even in short introductory paragraphs that segue into vaguely related online discussions and stories.

Annoying though it might be, this piece of advice will prove itself to be true time and time again, which is why offices usually have some sort of dress code. They want to give the impression of some sort of professionalism within the organization, even if the people in charge don't hold their behavior to that same standard. And, when you've been holding your morning standup meetings in your boxers since a certain-global-event-which-can't-be-named started—well, you've got every right to feel a little miffed when you're forced to start going into the office again and forced to do so in a stuffy t-shirt and tight pants that don't fit right anymore.

People Share Heartwarming Stories Of The Highest Amount Of Money That They've Spent To Save Their Cats' Lives

LOL Cats - Mon, 04/01/2024 - 07:00

Are we the only cat owners who love spending money on their cats? Hold on, correction: are we the only cat owners who love spending money on their cats, knowing that our cats won't appreciate half the things that we buy them? We can't stop ourselves! We know that cats don't care about fancy cat trees and that cats will choose anything over expensive toys, but we keep buying our cats these expensive things anyway. And then regretting it when our cats don't touch it. 

We love spending money on our cats… during happy times and for fun things. But sometimes, spending money on your cat is not fun, it's a necessity. Cats getting sick, trying to take care of them… 'difficult' does not begin to cover it. But we do it. And we pay. Because our cats are worth every penny, and that's what this thread is all about.

‘Just go…’: Employee kicks entitled customer out after they refuse to leave at closing time

Fail Blog - Mon, 04/01/2024 - 06:00

It takes an absurd amount of patience and tenacity to work in customer service as at times it really seems like the clients are out to get you. However, as any seasoned customer service professional will tell you (from experience, of course), there is no one in the world worth jeopardizing your job for.

The next story comes from a frustrated worker who is eager to get home. The Original Poster (OP) is a convenience shop employee who closes shop at precisely ten o'clock every night. But on this particular day, less than two minutes before the store was set to close, a client entered thinking it would be the perfect chance to fill up on everything he could possibly need.

Things then took an unexpected turn from that point on. Having said that, read the story below to find out more about what transpired between OP and the entitled customer! In addition, don't forget to read this story about the neighbor who, as a 'punishment' for putting out the trash after hours, hides his neighbor's trash can!

A Whole Batch Of Judgmental Cats Feeling Disappointed With Their Humans For Clearly Not Spoiling Them Enough

LOL Cats - Mon, 04/01/2024 - 06:00

Each and every day, we look at our cats and think… gosh, we wish we had their lives. Food getting served to us the second we start screaming, our poops being cleaned after us by mysterious litterbox fairies, kisses placed upon our heads whenever we want them. What a life. Ameowzing. And yet… looking at our grumpy spoiled cats, you would think that they are suffering. Because there is no such a thing as 'overly spoiled cats', not to them. 

If things are not done the exact way that our cats want them to be done, there will be consequences. And these consequences are dire. Before you know it, your heart will be breaking, because your cat will punish you… by looking at you with disappointment. And there is nothing more painful than your spoiled cats being displeased with you. Nothing.

Update: Coworker gets back at lunch thief by tossing their unlabeled boxes: ‘Did you have your name on them?’

Fail Blog - Mon, 04/01/2024 - 05:00

Watching someone get a taste of their own medicine is a rare occurrence, but when it happens, you have to savor the moment. This is especially true for petty revenge on annoying coworkers. It's not every day you get to see that person suffer the consequences of their own actions. Most of the time, you just have to smile, nod, and ignore them while you quietly imagine all the ways their behavior might come back to bite them on the behind. However, when your annoying coworker has actively wronged you, you are well within your right to make those fantasies a reality (well, within reason, of course).

This employee discovered that their coworker, who got away with everything given her close relationship with their boss, had eaten their lunch. The thief's rationalization was that the box was unlabeled, but based on her unbothered and totally unapologetic reaction, this lady knew exactly what she was doing. So, when the employee later found empty boxes the thief was saving for her boyfriend's upcoming move, the employee took it upon herself to enact some payback. 

Keep scrolling below for the fallout. For more stories like this, take a look at this one about an employee who made their coworker's elevator ride a nightmare.

'I have every right': resident refuses to remove security camera from front door after demanding neighbors complain it overlooks their property

Fail Blog - Mon, 04/01/2024 - 04:00

Have you ever heard the famous phrase 'Patience is a virtue'? Even if you haven't, it is not that hard of a sentence to understand–having patience is a good trait to have. You would think that it also would not be so hard to act accordingly and have patience in your day-to-day life. But that is often not the case.

Especially when it comes to the neighbors in this Reddit story. OP (original poster), has a ring camera that records the front of their house, to make sure no one steals their packages or anything of that sort. The neighbors that live across the hall from OP didn't like having their own front door recorded on OP's camera, so they decided to ask OP to do something about it. Even though OP understood the request and told them they were going to look for a solution, the neighbors had no patience whatsoever. Every day since they have been leaving messages to OP on their ring camera and started to behave very suspiciously.

'I ended up making less than $500 a paycheck': Company lies about compensation to new hire, employee quits via meme

Fail Blog - Sun, 03/31/2024 - 16:00

The job search is tough, and it can be quite a lengthy process too. But once you finally nail a few rounds of interviews for a job you really want, you can feel on top of the world. The only part left is negotiating your contract. In the case of this new hire, she was only looking for a job to help pay for childcare, and she was really honest about that with her new employer. The worst part is that her employer promised her at least $1,200 a paycheck, given that the company had a commission-based pay and offered regular bonuses. Her new boss promised there was no way she'd make less than that. Well, shocker, they lied.

The employer kept telling this employee not to come in because there wasn't enough work for her, even though they had hired her in the first place. She was promised 35 hours a week but ended up getting the majority of her shifts canceled, sometimes as late as 10 minutes before her shift. Tired of the false promises and deceit from her employer, she decided to call it quits in the most iconic way possible - via meme.

'It's too late now!': Mega-Kevin gets himself fired over a cup of free coffee

Fail Blog - Sun, 03/31/2024 - 15:00

Have you ever been jonesing for a coffee so much that you lash out against hotel staff, risking your reputation, well-being, and your livelihood? Yeah, me neither. While coffee beans are delicious and revitalizing, they can also turn hotel guests into bitter Bettys, keen on taking their frustrations out on the staff. For the front desk manager in our next story, fending off feral guests from the complimentary coffee in the morning required full-time attention–that is until one customer completely lost their marbles. 

Anyone who's endured the throes of a customer service job can attest that there's nothing worse than a rogue Karen or Kevin. Inflated by entitlement and fueled by impotent rage, these megaliths of stubbornness seek to steamroll every customer service representative they can get their hands on. But at least for the hotel staff in our next story, they were able to get their own payback against a Kevin who decided to antagonize everyone over a free cup of coffee.

'Asked my crush out, she said, "Omg ew"': 15 Moments of ultimate cringe that keep people awake at night

Fail Blog - Sun, 03/31/2024 - 14:00

No one gets through teenagehood without some unbelievably cringe moments.

If you got to grow up in the ages before social media, count your blessings. Today's kids, meaning the Gen Alpha and Gen Z-ers of the world, will have all of their teenage follies on the internet forever. Even before social media, though, a lot of people had their cringiest teen moments in front of crowds of other teens.

Some of these cringemasters were love-sick teenagers who thought the best way to tell their crush they like them was with a very badly written love note dropped secretly into a locker. For this person, their crush didn't even see the letter at first! And when she did, her reaction left a lot to be desired. That's the kind of thing that sticks with you for years after, playing in your head as you try to fall asleep. 

At least most of us grow out of our cringiest moments, which is why it's so funny to look back on them. Check out these numerous moments of cringe that stuck with people for years afterward. Then, take a peek at some of Facebook Marketplace's most delusional sellers, like the person trying to sell a baggie full of spaghetti for $100 (good luck with that!).

‘The head of the HOA was fuming’: Guy drives HOA board members crazy over the color of his house

Fail Blog - Sun, 03/31/2024 - 13:00

If HOAs want to enforce pointless rules, then they better be prepared for people to expose just how pointless said rules are. 

Here, we have a guy who just wanted to paint his house a light green color but did not realize that the HOA had to approve the color. When the head of the HOA came by to discuss the paint job, he purposely left out this reminder so that the resident could later be fined for not complying. 

That's when the resident decided to get petty in return. He proceeded to submit dozens of color requests, claiming to be constantly having to change his mind because of color availability. The HOA board members lost their minds over these incessant requests and eventually agreed upon the initial color request. 

Keep scrolling below for the full play-by-play. For more stories of HOA drama, check out this post about an HOA pizza delivery gone wrong.

'Do you know who my wife is?': Entitled bowler starts wrecking bowling alley, name-drops wife as he gets kicked out

Fail Blog - Sun, 03/31/2024 - 12:00

Funny enough, this bowling alley has a three-strike rule for their worst-behaved customers. 

Bowling is a great way to pass the time for people of all ages. This person, u/Emmisbaby, works at a bowling alley in a college town, so at times, their customers get a little rowdy. It seems like every time you go bowling, there's at least one lane that can't act right. They're hooting and hollering at the top of their lungs; they're rolling the bowling baIIs way too hard into the guard rails as the lane resets. Some people can't help but walk onto the extremely slippery lanes! There's just no reason to do that. 

No one finds it funny except for the people acting rowdy. And the establishment's workers and managers just want that raucous group to get out of that bowling alley ASAP. This customer felt very entitled to bowling with no consequences, and even felt it was appropriate to name-drop his wife and her job position. 

Check out what happened when this bowling alley employee let a customer break the rules until they finally had to intervene. And after that, read the story of a boss who fired his employee as an April Fool's joke---only to get fired himself when his employee took the firing seriously.

Top Mildly Infuriating Moments of the Week (March 31, 2024)

Fail Blog - Sun, 03/31/2024 - 11:00

It could be said that a large portion of one's life is consumed with the full range of unwanted inconveniences. These situations can vary from the minor to the major, from the temporary to the permanent, and from the eye-roll-inducing to the screaming-in-your-pillow reactions. 

For the sake of our collective amusement, we will be focusing on life's mildly infuriating moments today. You know, the kinds of situations that are intensely frustrating but not life-altering. In fact, at most, these moments are day-altering, like when you have to journey all the way back home because you left your work computer there or when you're stuck on the train for a few minutes longer than desired. We relish in these moments when they do not happen to us personally because they take us back to when we have been in similar situations and they make us feel ever so slightly less crazy when others react with recognizable frustration. In short, watching mildly infuriating moments unfold for other humans makes us feel more human. So, thank you to these Redditors and Internet folks for sharing their recent grievances.

‘It doesn’t work like that': Boss tries splitting his own bonus amongst team of employees, finance shuts him down

Fail Blog - Sun, 03/31/2024 - 10:00

One very lucky individual who was working as a boss in corporate took to Reddit to complain about their 'amazing job'. On the surface, their job seemed like a dream come true. They explained they had unparalleled autonomy, generous perks, and a handsome salary. So what's wrong? Well, this person was deeply dissatisfied as they felt like just another cog in the machine, and weren't able to help their own employees when it came to raises. Each year the employees were shut down and told they weren't getting more than a 2% raise. Yet somehow, finance had 30k and 40k bonuses to send their boss's way. They toiled tirelessly and the boss reaped the results. It's a broken system, what can I say?

The commenters had a lot of suggestions and gave their honest two cents… Some said the boss should split their bonus amongst the team of employees, while others said they should do something else entirely. Next up, a programmer who was laid off in favor of a new hire… but it all went wrong.
