Cat Lovers Gather Online To Discuss Their Feline Companions' Unique Preferences and Quirks

LOL Cats - Fri, 03/01/2024 - 07:00

Hey, friends! If you are a cat owner, you know how adorably strange our beloved feline companions can be. Today we are shining our fabulous ICanHasCheezburger spotlight on a thread where cat lovers gathered to discuss their cats' silliest personal preferences and quirks. The results were hysterical, let's dig in. 

One cat owner shares their feline's fascination with Earthy scents, describing how their cat revels in rolling on dirty items and even has a designated "dirt towel" for pleasure. Responses from fellow cat owners showcase a variety of quirky behaviors: a cat demanding intermittent petting sessions, another playing fetch like a dog, and one experimenting with different sounds to initiate laser pointer play. Cats with odd eating habits, shoulder preferences, and fabric obsessions are also mentioned. Whether it's winking, growling at delivery people, or an obsession with cheese, these anecdotes highlight the delightful eccentricities that make each cat special to its owner.

'He was out to get me from the start': Employee deletes all his work files after being fired by manager who wants to take down the company

Fail Blog - Fri, 03/01/2024 - 06:00

Getting fired is not a fun experience, that is a no-brainer. Nobody likes getting fired, and nobody wants it. Most of the time it comes out of nowhere, but sometimes you actually see it coming. Whether by listening to a hushed conversation between your supervisors or when you see a suspicious-looking meeting was added to your calendar.

I always wanted to be one of those employees who dare to teach the boss a lesson when they decide to fire you. Some kind of way to say "You are going to be sorry for letting me go", but I always end up being nice about it and accepting it quietly. 

The employee in this Reddit story did not go quietly when he got fired. OP (original poster) discovers that his boss is planning to bring down the firm by selling it to a different company. Right before that happens, OP gets fired and is told to get his documents ready for the move. OP,  angry at his now-former boss, deleted all his documents in response.

'To save two dollars in OT, they let a few thousand dollars [...] go to waste': Employee lectured for working OT, double malicious compliance ensues

Fail Blog - Fri, 03/01/2024 - 05:00

Why is it that so many bosses are too concerned with enforcing minor rules rather than focusing on what should be their priorities? The answers are almost related to money and ego. If it's money, you have a boss who can only think about budget, budget, budget, and nothing else. There's no concern for the wellbeing of your employees and, in some cases like this one, there isn't even much thought given to the overall wellbeing of the company (i.e. sometimes, overtime is necessary to keep things afloat, no matter how much you don't like properly paying your employees for their hard work). Now, as for the ego issue, it comes as no surprise that most people in charge feel the need to flex their muscles when literally no one is questioning their authority. 

With this story, it seems that we have a bit of both issues going on simultaneously. This thread was posted to Reddit's r/MaliciousCompliance subreddit and follows the original poster's two-part malicious compliance following repeated lectures against working overtime. The first time, the employee noticed a major issue with one of their appliances but decided not to deal with it since he wasn't allowed to stay late. You can imagine how that went! The next part involved another instance in which the employee and his boss's roles were reversed.

Keep scrolling below for the full saga. When you're done, check out this post about an enraged boss who gave her employee an earful after they were upgraded to first class on a work trip and she was not.

'You better believe I wore the "baby sharp" hat everyday': Clever line cook gets snubbed by a humorless manager, makes their own fun by wearing the joke on their uniform

Fail Blog - Fri, 03/01/2024 - 04:00

It's important to keep some semblance of 'fun' in the workplace because that's the only thing that's getting you (and your coworkers) through your workday. But like every group project in middle school, there's always going to be a Debbie Downer in your group, determined to squash any good-natured fun that falls outside of the rulebook. 

I'm convinced that those humorless folks grew up with one job title on their mind: Manager. 

While it's not true across the board, most managers can be a real bummer in the workplace, just like the unfunny manager in our next story which takes place in a jaunty kitchen. Poised to pass the workday with flawless fun, one clever line cook started poking fun at their callouts for a knife on the floor. As many people know, the kitchen can be a dangerous place–with knives flying all around and burning hot surfaces–but this line cook wasn't put out by the dangers. In fact, they quirkified the standard kitchen warnings and made them their own fun version.

Scroll onward to see how their humorless manager reacted when they found out the cooks were calling the knives, "sharps", and how this snarky line cook kept the comedy alive in the kitchen afterward.

27 Majestic White Cats Purroudly Sporting Their Feline Charm and Regal Cattitude

LOL Cats - Thu, 02/29/2024 - 22:00

Back in my college days, I worked as a waitress at this popular gastropub that was always packed in the summer. With live entertainment on the patio, it was the place to be when the weather was nice. But amidst all the hustle and bustle, there was a charmingly unconventional part of our team – the dumpster kitties.

These feral cats had made the back area by the dumpsters their territory, scavenging for any tasty morsels they could find. Among them, there was one cat who stood out – a majestic white feline, clearly the leader amidst the crew.

While the others stayed back, content with their dumpster delicacies, this bold white cat wasn't afraid to make her presence known. On those sunny days when the patio was packed, she'd strut her stuff, gracefully walking along the iron fence, as if putting on a regal performance just for the customers.

None of us couldn't resist her charm. Despite the rules, we'd often let her linger a little longer, soaking up the attention and occasional treat from adoring patrons. Though I haven't worked there in quite a while, I imagine she's still the patio celebrity, living it up with all of the best gourmet food a stray could imagine.

These kitties are way too good looking for their own good. Some of them are beautiful in a silly way, but that still counts as good looking. Come to think of it, we don't think we have ever encountered a cat that wasn't purrfect. What can we say, they are all gorgeous. Black, grey, white, orange, a mix… It doesn't matter. Speaking of cats just makes us miss our own… We wonder what Spock and Leo are up to at the moment.

'I am now in the midst of my 208 minute wait for a call back': Guy gets student loans forgiven only for the loan company to un-forgive them less than a year later

'She invited all of her previous husbands because she enjoys drama': 15+ Wedding guests tell the funniest and most awkward wedding-day dramas they've ever witnessed

Fail Blog - Thu, 02/29/2024 - 14:00

You can't expect everything to go 100% perfectly at a wedding. It seems like every couple has at least one funny story from their special day. They may not find it funny in the moment, but their guests will never forget it. 

Some moments are funny because it's not appropriate to giggle during the wedding ceremony. Everyone is trying really hard to be serious and solemn, so when anything remotely silly happens, the audience just bursts out laughing. Later at the reception, people imbibe a little too much. That leads to things like Uncle David face-planting on the dance floor, or one of the bridesmaids deciding dance on a table and then tumbling to the floor. 

The people below have certainly seen their share of funny and awkward wedding moments. They answered u/cdlrosa's question for the "wedding attendees of Reddit," and the question received over 400 answers. You can check out some of the funniest and most cringeworthy anecdotes below, like the dad who forgot the bride's name as he was giving a speech, or the mother of the bride who was so mad she started pulling up grass with her bare hands. 

Next, these jobs were the worst of the worst, according to the employees who had to go there each day. 

'This is going on your permanent record': 20+ lies kids were told by their parents and teachers

Fail Blog - Thu, 02/29/2024 - 13:00

Sure, it's true that kids will do and say crazy things, but let's take a look at all the crazy things parents and teachers say to them. Perhaps craziness begets craziness. After all, and this will annoy all the anti-musical theater folks out there, but it was Stephen Sondheim who said "children will listen." If you tell an impressionable eight year old that toilets are evil creatures trying to swallow you whole, that eight year old may very well believe you. And what happens when they believe you? Let's just say that kid may not be using the bathroom for the foreseeable future. 

Many of these folks did not realize that the lies they were told at such a young age were, in fact, untrue. It often took a shocking revelation or a painfully embarrassing moment for the truth to come out. These Redditors, who shared the worst lies they were ever told via the following r/AskReddit thread, are thankfully proof that the truth does ultimately reveal itself… although it may not be for some time. For more stories like this, here is a compilation of passive-aggressive compliments.

'He claims [I] was "wasting two hours of everybody's time"': Manager refuses to speak to IT employee after being embarrassed in front of clients

Fail Blog - Thu, 02/29/2024 - 12:00

This employee didn't want to one-up their boss, but their hand was forced (by said boss). What's an employee to do? 

While working in IT at a small company, this guy was accustomed to working on different types of devices and operating systems. The employee was encouraged to bring their own device "as long as it got the job done." It's clear that their boss didn't understand what they did, though, after he made some questionable decisions. 

It's one thing if you and your boss don't get along at work. But showing your strained relationship in front of clients can make things super awkward. It's probably more awkward for the boss who was trying to make it look like he knew what he was doing when he really had no idea. But clearly it would make an impression on the client who spent hours waiting for a resolution for their problems. The clients won't care about who's right or wrong---they just want their issues fixed as quickly as possible so they can get back to business as usual. 

Check out the whole story below, and then check out some perfectly passive-aggressive comments, like "I love how you just wear anything."

Through it all, these furry felines remain true to themselves, full of charm and fluffiness, and cuteness that melts our hearts. They remind us that happiness can be found in the simplest of moments, whether it's playfully exploring a cardboard box or curling up for a cozy nap in the sun.

'Uh-uh. No one is here is hear you sing, friend': Audience member ruins performance of Wicked by singing loudly the entire show

Fail Blog - Thu, 02/29/2024 - 11:00

It's time to talk about audience etiquette, or lack thereof. People's general understanding of how to behave in public gatherings has definitely gotten worse the past few years, especially when it comes to live performances. This particular public disruption happened at the Broadway musical Wicked, the long-running musical prequel to The Wizard of Oz in which the Wicked Witch of the West gets the opportunity to belt her face off for two and a half hours. 

Obviously, Wicked has become a cultural phenomenon, and so the music has become well-known, especially among millennials. However, just because you know the words does not mean you are cast as Elphaba. This audience member thought they were entitled to sing along to the entire show, effectively ruining the experience for everyone else in the audience. According to folks in the comments section, this is apparently a common occurrence at this show. It's remarkable how many folks have shared similar experience. No one needs to hear normies singing "Defying Gravity."

These wholesome house cat memes are just the thing to raise your spirits and make this day delightful.
