‘Fix your mess’: IT worker skillfully complies with micromanager, puts in 16 hours on a two-hour task, resulting in client's refusal to pay the hourly rate

Fail Blog - Wed, 03/27/2024 - 06:00

Large companies function like machines. The managers and employees are in charge of keeping the machine operating as efficiently and profitably as possible. But occasionally, people become so engrossed in their work that they lose sight of what needs to get done right now and what can wait.

In the story below, a devoted IT worker has had enough of his supervisors' ridiculous expectations. Since the Original Poster (OP) has been employed by the same company for quite some time, he is familiar with how the business operates as well as the best practices for delivering high-quality services quickly. Having said that, when OP's manager asked him to begin meticulously recording his hours, he agreed to do so even though he knew it would require him to put in a significant amount of extra time and significantly lower his efficiency.

So, make sure to read the story below if you're interested in learning what happened between OP and his manager and whether everything returned to normal after the manager realized how serious his mistake had been! After you're done, don't forget to read the story about the employee that quit because his micromanager refused to grant him paid time off for his wedding and honeymoon!

'You want petty? How's this?': Guy gets back at annoying coworker by making the elevator stop at every other floor

Fail Blog - Wed, 03/27/2024 - 05:00

Everyone has had an annoying coworker at some point in their professional career. You know, that one person you irrationally dislike and who always makes you struggle to not roll your eyes visibly in their face. There are a myriad of qualities that can lead to becoming that annoying coworker. There's the one who thinks they're slightly senior than you are based on absolutely zero evidence. There's the one who plays loud music, eats obnoxiously, or types like they want everyone to pay attention to them. And, of course, there's the coworker who overshares about their weekend and their personal life.

This employee was temporarily fooled into thinking their annoying coworker was out for the day. Just when they thought they had a day alone to themselves, they saw that he was just arriving late. To stomach the pain of this revelation and to buy themselves a few more moments of peace, they decided to press every single button on the elevator so that it would take approximately a century before it picked up the annoying coworker. As one person in the comments section suggested, this is perhaps the best form of petty revenge: no serious consequences, no one gets hurt, just causing a complete nuisance.

'She's nuttier than those poisoned cookies': Fake-nice neighbor leaves a cryptic message using baked goods, sparking a stalemate between floors

Fail Blog - Tue, 03/26/2024 - 15:00

Neighborly feuds are common when you share a building. With paper walls and wafer-thin floors, it's tough not to be involved in everyone's business, but most apartment dwellers can tune out the white noise of regular life for the sake of everyone's sanity. However, the homebody in our next story found that their casual life was 'impossibly loud' for their unnerving downstairs neighbor, who made their sentiments known most creepily. 

After living in the same upstairs apartment for 9 years, a cat-loving loner who kept to themselves started noticing some passive-aggressive behavior from the downstairs unit. Although they rarely had guests over, our story begins when the introvert had a friend over for dinner–but the fun came to a screeching halt when they received a wordy complaint from the newbie downstairs. 

Scroll for the entire story of how this neighborly dispute escalated into strangely Cold War-style tactics that led one woman to question the safety of a batch of 'apology cookies' she found on her front doorstep. Were they chocolate chunk delights with an extra dash of revenge? Keep reading to find out!

'I legit thought I was in elementary school lunch': 20+ Memorably bad wedding-day meals

Fail Blog - Tue, 03/26/2024 - 14:00

No couple wants to have that wedding where guests only remember how bad the food was. Out of the dozens of weddings you'll attend in your life, there are bound to be a few that are like that… 

Every wedding has a few memorable moments. At some weddings, the father of the bride will dance like no one's watching, making everyone crack up. Other times, the bridesmaids will get too rowdy, and someone will have to go back to the hotel room to recover. And sometimes there are incidents with kids, like a flower girl who decides she's too shy to walk down the aisle. All of these will make cute memories, at least. If the wedding has dry cake and inedible salmon dinners, that's going to be the incident that everyone talks about for years to come. 

These wedding guests have had some absolutely awful meals come their way, as they shared in a post from u/MsPumpernickel asking, "What is the worst wedding food you have been served?" I feel for the person who cut into the wedding cake, only to realize it was raw inside! And the vegans and vegetarians of the world are suffering at some events---one person revealed that they ate other people's garnishes in order to cobble together a salad. It's rough out there! At least the common theme here was that people left the wedding and got fast food afterwards, so it wasn't a complete disaster. 

Next up, this company chose the worst possible time to revoke their employees' PTO rollover, and had to deal with an almost empty office for months.

'I made him too insecure': Guy dumps girlfriend after she scores higher on IQ test

Fail Blog - Tue, 03/26/2024 - 13:00

It's no secret that people can feel insecure in relationships. This can manifest in many ways, but when it comes to intellectual insecurity, sometimes there is nothing you can do to make your partner feel secure in their own intelligence. Perhaps it's all in their head, in which case, this person is too insecure to date. Whatever you do, do not dumb yourself down for this person. Or perhaps none of this in their head, and your partner really is not the brightest bulb. If that's the case, depending on how serious the situation may be, you might have to dump him also.

Here, we have a woman whose boyfriend kept on insisting that he had a higher IQ than his girlfriend, so much so that he forced her to take an IQ test one night. As you might expect, the result was not exactly what he had anticipated, and he wound up being far too threatened to continue the relationship further. She shared her side of the story via Reddit's r/MaliciousCompliance subreddit.

20 Heartwarming Stories Of How Lost Cats Were Found As Told By Reddit

LOL Cats - Tue, 03/26/2024 - 13:00

One of the reasons that we appreciate the love and attention that our cats give us, no matter how little, is that they always have the option to up and leave us. To be the self-sufficient little terrors that they very well know how to be. And today we are taking a look at some of the heartwarming stories of how the cats who decided to go off for a 'long walk', came back to their pawrents and made their lives whole again. After all, it is Tuesday, and we could all do with a little pick me up.

From the young feline who went on a four month vacation without so much as a goodbye and casually sauntered back into his pawrents life like nothing had happened, to the kooky catto who almost gave her pawrent a heart attack when she decided to go for a stroll around the new apartment complex that they just moved into, to the clawminal kitten who broke free from his hooman prison, only to realize that he had it much better at home and never left again. These wholesome and funny feline stories are the pawfect procrastination material to help those slow Tuesday minutes drip drop by.

'Hair salon learns the meaning of the Streisand effect': Customer puts hair salon on blast after spending $2k on extensions

Fail Blog - Tue, 03/26/2024 - 12:00

The only thing worse than getting a bad haircut is paying thousands of dollars for that terrible hairdo. This person, u/Hot_Door7211, found themself in that exact situation after paying a cool two grand for their hairstyle!

Until you have a reliable stylist, looking for the best place to get your hair styled can take some time. You never know if the stylist will do a good job or not until after they've already clipped your hair. And of course, it's not like you can glue the hair back on once your stylist has snipped off a few more inches than you intended. You just have to live with the results for a few months, no matter what. 

This person paid a staggering $2,000 to get extensions put in their hair, but they were super unhappy with the results. So this person made some reviews about their experience, only for the whole thing to spiral out of control. 

One commenter suggested the original poster should make some Tiktoks about their experience. This is quickly becoming the norm! It seems like making a viral TikTok about your experience at a company is the new 1-star Yelp review. This person actually shared photos of their haircut, but Reddit mods took them down. If they do eventually make a video about their experience, they'll be free to share all the photos they want… not that the salon would take that decision lightly. 

Next up, this person's coworkers can't agree if a joke about one coworker's wife went too far or not

15 Relatable And Funny Feline Pawrent Stories To Fill You With The Funnies

LOL Cats - Tue, 03/26/2024 - 12:00

Good Tuesday to you, our dear feline loving friends. And we are back with another list of hilarious feline content to lift your mood and help you cope with the challenges of the modern day. Today we are taking a moment to hear the relatable and funny stories of the feline pawrents of Reddit, who as you likely know, experience some pretty zany stuff with their feline fur babies. After all, at least ten percent of the reason we love cats is their ability to do surprising and utterly hilarious things that we simply cannot explain how they got to do.

From the cat who no matter what has to have a splish splash in his water bowl every time it is filled up, to the cats who have such a serious no phones in bed policy that they are willing to engage in clawminal behavior just to uphold their values, to the kitten who decided that soap was both a disgusting and delicious thing to monch on, to the cat who brought its pawrent a half-eaten mouse when it saw them frantically trying to find their passport, to the funny feline who purred so hard that air puffed out of her lips. These hilarious cat stories are the pawfect antidote to the terrible Tuesdays we know and loath.

'I cost my ex-employer $500,000': Boss makes employee take on the work of a whole team, rejects his request for a raise, employee makes the company tank

Fail Blog - Tue, 03/26/2024 - 11:00

Let this story serve as a friendly reminder to always get it done in writing, folks! Unfortunately, this employee learned that the hard way but was still able to walk away triumphant at the end of this toxic workplace drama. 

When the Redditor's coworker had to leave a big project in order to take care of his father, their boss asked the Redditor take the lead on the project moving forward. The original poster should have seen this as a red flag in and of itself, as his employer was essentially asking him to take on the work of an entire team. Instead, he decided to assume the responsibility but requested a raise. His boss said he would grant the raise after the project was complete. None of this was expressed in writing, which meant that the boss denied all of this when the time came for said raise.

So the employee decided to find a much better job and to leave the company high and dry since his boss made it seem like he was so replaceable. Well, like Beyoncé, he was not, and the company ended up losing a ton of money as a result of his departure. Keep scrolling below for the full story.

‘I'm getting fired, aren't I?’: Sole QA employee gets blamed for a mistake that affects thousands of customers, CEO refuses to take responsibility for team being understaffed

Fail Blog - Tue, 03/26/2024 - 10:00

The constant threat of getting fired from a job is looming on pretty much any employee. Even if you only made a tiny mistake, or even if you haven't made a mistake at all, it always feels like someone is watching you and that someone is not happy. So when you do make a mistake, possibly a huge mistake that might affect the entire company, well, then you might as well pack your bags and leave without a word.

Much like the employee in this Reddit story. The employee (OP, original poster) is an overworked QA, and in this story, she wrote that she had made a mistake at her work that affected thousands of customers. She managed to fix the mistake in less than 10 minutes but word still reached the entire company. Even though she is the sole QA employee, and the company should really acknowledge this fact, the CEO now asks her for a report on everything that happened and for her entire process at work, and she is sure she is going to get fired any day now.
