The Life of a Hybrid Employee: Memes and Fails That Pretty Much Sum It Up

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/19/2022 - 13:00

We all know those in-person days and those WFH days look very different. When it's an in-person day, you get up with just the right amount to shower, get ready, grab your morning coffee, and commute to the office looking like a professional human person. But when it's a remote day, here's what's really happening.


First, you get up at the last possible moment before a meeting. You don't shower until mid-day when you should be working. You don't change into anything remotely professional looking. Instead, you wear sweats, or you cover yourself with a blanket, or you stay in bed, or you just wear nothing at all (I'm not endorsing this behavior, it's simply reality). In short, on the in-person days, you look like a photoshopped version of a human, and on the remote days, you look less than unfiltered. Keep scrolling below for a closer look at the life of a hybrid employee. For more content like this, check out these office holiday party memes. 

30+ Building blunders from people who don't even know which end of a hammer to use

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/19/2022 - 12:00

Designing and constructing a building - how hard could it possibly be? Draw a few blueprints here, toss a few bricks and cement there, easy peasy. Joking, of course, but these 35 structures below have suffered from some poor planning. It looks like a lot of these buildings, staircases, and a surprising amount of bathrooms, were all just thrown together as quickly as possible. 

It's like the construction crew just cared about completing the building ASAP, and didn't even worry about the people using it. Electricity by water fixtures? Who cares! A disability ramp that will send you careening off a second story building? Neat! We're shaking our heads so hard at these building blunders - keep scrolling and try not to roll your eyes too hard.

'Messing with people's vacation time': Ultimate malicious compliance story after vacation days are significantly reduced

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/19/2022 - 11:00

Best way to make enemies? Reduce their PTO! That's what the new owners of this company learned the hard way after Jimmy's now iconic malicious compliance.


A coworker shared his story via this thread on Reddit's r/MaliciousCompliance subreddit, and let's just say that Jimmy's story is one for the ages. After working at the company for most of his professional life, his 8 weeks of vacation and 2 weeks of personal time were to be put to an end by the new year (and afterward, reduced to 4 weeks). Once he learned that he was going to be training a likely candidate to ultimately replace him, Jimmy took all 10 of his weeks off and, during that time, got a new job. Because he was one of the only people who understood how to do his own job, the new owners were completely screwed.

Calico Cats Have The Most Captivating Multi-Colored Coats, Here Are 16 Pictures Proving Our Point

LOL Cats - Mon, 12/19/2022 - 11:00

What's up pawty people!? We love all cats, that's no secret, but sometimes we like to give a shout out to certain breeds and showcase their silly moments, beauty, and overall adorable-ness. This time we're shining a huge spotlight on calico cats. Calico cats are very near and dear to our hearts, we have had many a calico cat in our day and we definitely have a special connection with them. Whenever we see a calico cat, we just cannot help but stop and stare in awe. For those of you who don't know, the calico is a domestic cat with a tri-color coat; white, black, orange and adorable all over. Calicos are known to be sassy and spunky, but as we cat people know, this depends on each cat individually. 

Did you know that the vast majority of calico cats are female? Two X chromosomes are needed for a cat to have that distinctive tri-color coat. If a cat has an XX pair, she will be female. Male cats have an XY chromosome pair, so they can't be Calicos. We learn something new every single day over here at ICanHasCheezburger, y'all. 

Update! 'I'm the a**hole': Dog owner lets pet "go" in neighbor's yard, wonders if they're wrong, internet sets them straight

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/19/2022 - 10:00

An excellent sign of an obliviously entitled person is someone who refuses to control their pet. Fido might be your best friend, but that doesn't mean you should be letting it roam endlessly onto other people's property or taking off the leash at an explicitly leashed park. 

It's not often that people actually return to take accountability for their actions on the internet. We're so set in our ways, polarized in our beliefs, and utterly convinced we're right that we tend to struggle to take other people's advice and opinions on board. Luckily, this Reddit user seems to have accepted the judgment they received on Reddit's r/AmItheA**hole subreddit, and they have returned with an update to include the steps they intend to take for reparations with the neighbor.

‘You’re Single Because of Your Ridiculously High Physical Standards’ : Man Comes Clean to Delusional Friend Who Believes Most Women Are Out of His League

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/19/2022 - 09:00

Some people are a little less self-aware than others, and sometimes they need some gentle nudging in the right direction. Then again, everyone has their own perspective, and none is better than the other… yet still, there are some universal things that people agree on, and these things often have to do with basic vision… of the eyes. If someone is super attractive, you can just tell. They may not be your type, but you can still objectively say that they are attractive. When someone is not so attractive, same thing. And for the record, someone can be less attractive from a societal perspective, but you could still be attracted to them, and they may be more your type than others who do fit the (crazily high) social standard of beauty. 


Don't mind me going in circles, though. This article is about a post I found on r/AITA, of a man who sat his friend down and told him quite bluntly, that he should lower his standards in regards to dating. This is less about how attractive his friend is, and more about his friend's double standards. This friend, you see, was not blessed with good-looking genes (which is fine), and does nothing to make himself look more 'attractive' (again, totally fine) — yet he does believe that the women he dates need to meet a certain physical standard — while he doesn't hold himself to the same standards. He is, as you can imagine, very single.


I'm kind of torn on this post, but you're welcome to take a look and judge for yourself. Because that's what we do here, after all. We read posts on the internet and judge strangers. Cuz it's fun. So sue me. And while we're on the topic of reading posts on the internet, feel free to check out these random memes for a good laugh, because they basically define reality.

47 Best Cat Memes That Every Crazy Cat Owner Will Appreciate

LOL Cats - Mon, 12/19/2022 - 09:00

Let's get one thing straight. One thing about us, cat people, is that despite popular belief, we're not crazy. Yeah, we know, shocker. We tend to have a reputation as 'crazy cat people' but that's only because, well, our cats are crazy… which is kinda fair when you really think about it. But nah, some people just don't understand that cat people have more fun. With the constant hooligan shenanigans we have to put up with, how could we not have fun? 

With that being said, we present to you a huge collection of cat memes that all relate to the chaos that comes with living with cats (in a good way) and everything in between. Expect to see a lot of hooliganism, and mischief, but most of all classic cat behavior.

Update! 'He said I couldn't have left at a worse time': Employee tries to reconnect with boss after quitting goes wrong

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/19/2022 - 08:00

One person shared their experience reconnecting with an old boss after an emotional departure from the job. The OP shared to Reddit, asking if they were in the wrong with the interaction. This person describes how they worked for a company for six years, rising through the ranks and eventually even doubling their salary over years of hard work. But then they got an offer they couldn't refuse. It would more than double their salary! 

The OP quit with what they thought was an appropriate tone, and even had a plan in place for leaving. But their boss exploded upon hearing the news, accusing them of disloyalty to the company that made their career possible. 

However, OP decided that they still wanted to have this boss in their life, because he mentored them, and they didn't want to burn bridges. So they decided to meet up for a drink, and the OP ended up getting some much-needed explanations behind the bosses' strong reaction.

Ultimate 'A-hole Cat' Stories From The ICanHasCheezburger Community

LOL Cats - Mon, 12/19/2022 - 08:00

While the rest of the world (dog people) question our integrity and sanity for owning cats, we're here to prove all those that doubted us wrong. Owning a cat may just be one of the most fulfilling, exciting, and comforting experiences one can go through in their lifetime. It's everything about them and more - their fluffy little bellies, precious little toe beans, antenna-like whiskers, but most of all… it's their personalities. 

Say what you want about cats, but one thing you can't deny is that they are characters. They have a mind of their own, they do as they please, and will pretty much establish dominance over anyone and everyone standing in their way. It's true, cats are as*holes, and there's nothing you can do about it. All that's left is to accept it and adapt to the chaos that comes with living with cats. But truthfully, if you ask us - we wouldn't have it any other way. 

‘You Won't Get Away With It’ : Two Frat Boys Blissfully Dine And Dash, Not Realizing One of The Customers Who Witnessed The Deed Know Their Parents

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/19/2022 - 07:00

It seems a ridiculous notion that people would actually come to a restaurant, order, eat their food, smile politely at the waiter, and have zero intention of paying. In many restaurants, the manager will unfairly dock the server's pay (Which is horrendously unfair). In fact, back when I was waiting on tables, this happened to me. My manager took the money out of my paycheck, and me being young and dumb and unaware of a little thing called 'The Law', allowed it to happen. So to say this story hits close to home is an understatement.


While scouring r/TalesFromYourServer, I happened upon a post that made me smile — someone shared a story that had happened to them many, many years ago, and still had a special place in their hearts because of how ridiculously it played out. The two frat boys who thought they could dine and dash, had another thing coming. Scroll down to read about a very special customer that they weren't quite aware of. Below you will also find hilarious comments with similar stories.

The Best 'Say You're A Cat Person Without Saying You're A Cat Person' Answers: ICanHasCheezburger Edition

LOL Cats - Mon, 12/19/2022 - 07:00

As long time cat owners, we can shamelessly say that we have developed some… strange habits over the years. Hey, we want our cats to be happy! More than that - we want them to be the happiest, and if that means going the extra mile and doing some weird stuff, well… so be it. So, what? So we know that our cats love boxes, so we never throw delivery boxes away. So, we know that our cats like drinking from the sink, so we leave the tap open for them for a little while after brushing our teeth. So, we know that our cats like hearing our voices, so we walk around and have meow-filled conversations with our cats. So, what? That doesn't do anyone any harm. But it does mark us as a cat person. 

There are certain things that we do as cat people that really show that we're cat people. Don't need to say a thing. If someone like us walked into your house, we would be able to recognize you as a cat person or not within the span of one minute, tops. There are signs. And those are heckin' hilarious. 

Idiot coworker lies about boss's fake directive to make guy help them while on leave, guy gets the boss involved

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/19/2022 - 06:00

There's nothing more infuriating than being relentlessly contacted by an annoying coworker while you're on leave. I mean, they're not even your boss, and for some reason, they feel entitled to having you do your work for them. This goes to another level when this coworker lies and makes up a story about how they're contacting you because the boss asked them to. This is a hard reach and easily verified by asking the boss themself. 

This is exactly what Redditor u/ver03255 did when a new coworker insisted on contacting them while they were on personal leave for their brother's heart surgery. The coworker was determined to get them to help with a client's request for moving a deadline. 

With the boss and HR actually involved, the coworker was forced to retreat. At least their olive branch of pizza will fix everything, right?

Update: Unhinged bridezilla doesn't let cousin attend wedding reception, cousin asks to take her gift back

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/19/2022 - 05:00

Some people have zero class. Sure, asking for your gift back is not the greatest look in the world, but uninviting your cousin to your wedding reception because she "doesn't drink" well after you received your cousin's wedding gift is cruel and shady. Clearly, Bridezilla over here wanted the gift and waited to break the news. Given the update the Redditor gave about her parents, this has all been very calculated. 


This thread was posted to Reddit's r/AmITheA**hole subreddit, and the ruthless judges of the AITA community were largely supportive of the original poster's desire to take back the gift. Yes, it's dramatic, but bridezilla showed no respect either. Why should her behavior be validated with a gift instead of a sobering dose of reality?

Guy pettily trolls rich neighbor Karen who is mad about a new road joining her neighborhood to a 'poor' one

Fail Blog - Sun, 12/18/2022 - 16:00

We're often told in life that we should always do the right thing, but what is one to do when the right thing is also wrong? Perhaps, this quandary is the best way to consider the situation at hand in this story. This guy has taken to pettily trolling his rich Karen neighbor, who is infuriated by the fact that public works have just completed a project that has added a road connecting her upscale neighborhood to a poorer one. 

It's pretty safe to assume that this Karen is probably just one of those people who resist advancement of any kind and have excuses for why no changes should ever be made to anything ever. 

Keep scrolling to see screenshots of the post and reactions. There's something totally glorious about baiting the rage of an irrational individual; after all, it is one of the oldest art forms on the internet.

Funniest End of the Year Memes for Employees Whose Current Workload is Becoming a 2023 Problem

Fail Blog - Sun, 12/18/2022 - 15:00

The best part of the holiday season is that sweet spot on the calendar between Thanksgiving and the New Year where everyone's work comes to a complete stand still. Society just understands that we might as well chill during this time frame and it's completely normal for people to simply put an away message on their email that says, "OOO—Let's circle back in 2023". Those spreadsheet issues are just going to have to wait until January to be solved. 


Maybe it's become normalized because everyone is using up the last of their PTO, giving up on Q4 goals, and cracking a beer at 11am so that they can endure their family members who have decided to stop by with cookies every other day to get in the holiday spirit. Whatever you need to do to survive the holidays is definitely not going to include late nights at the office or working overtime. 2022 is over and any work problems are simply going to roll over into next year.
