Meow, meow hoomans and welcome to another week of feline goodness, and work, that has to happen too.

From a very realistic depiction of what Mika and Mocha's pawrent's money is spent on, to Mika's attempt at finding her pawrent a soulmate so that she can stop annoying her while she is trying to sleep, to Mocha's momentary moment of insecurity, to a pawdorable moment captured during Mocha's playtime, to Mika's most marvelous portrait. These wholesome feline moments are just what we all need while we are so far away from our fluffy feline babies.

'The building was empty for most of December': Managers agree to every single vacation request after company eliminates PTO rollover

Fail Blog - Mon, 03/25/2024 - 12:00

This company got bought out over and over again. It's no wonder the employees who remained had to deal with so many shenanigans from their managers. 

One of the best parts of working a salaried job is racking up paid time off days. Everyone uses their allotted time a little differently---some people love to take the family to Disney or on a camping trip a couple of times a year, while others take a few days here and there to do weekend adventures. No matter where you go, you come back feeling rejuvenated and hopefully less burnt out than before. It's a nice little reward for employees who work hard. 

These employees couldn't believe it when they heard that their "new evil overlords" were taking away their PTO rollover. Who knows what the higher-ups were thinking when they decided to revoke it. I imagine they only talked it over for a few minutes, not realizing how much havoc it would wreak on their company for the last few months of the quarter.

Person Buys A Toy Snake For Their Cats, The Cats React In The Funniest Way Pawssible (Video)

LOL Cats - Mon, 03/25/2024 - 12:00

Cats reacting to things - also known as one of our favorite genres of videos on the internet. Cats reacting in any way to any thing is the best thing. And it's even better when our cats react with complete and utter befuddlement. Whether it's our cats getting shocked by watching a lion documentary, or attempting to bamboozle our cats with optical illusions or this cat's hissterical reaction to its owner spilling food. When our cats are shook, we laugh. That's the rule.

And another rule is that we, as our cats' humble servants who do absolutely everything for them, have the right to bring something to bamboozle our cats every once in a while. They can complain all they want. Them's the rules. And that's why we cannot be mad at the person in this video for bringing a spooky toy snake for their cats to react to. No, we cannot be mad. We can only laugh.

Teacher gets PTO request denied on day with no class, takes off worse day and makes HR scramble: 'I'm there because I want to be, not because I need to be'

Fail Blog - Mon, 03/25/2024 - 11:00

Managers better have a good reason for denying someone's PTO request. Otherwise, they're practically asking for conflict. In fact, the number of legitimate reasons is quite minimal, considering that employees are granted the right to take their vacation days when they sign on to a company. In this instance, the employee was actually trying to take off days that were mutually convenient for both her and for the school in which she worked. However, her department head decided to make an issue out of it, and her subsequent malicious compliance made matters all the more worse for him and the HR department.

This teacher happened to not have class on Fridays and decided to give herself a break this month by requesting off on all Fridays. This way, she didn't have to help find a substitute or adjust any lesson plans. She would get her days off and it would hardly affect anyone. Well, once her boss refused to let her take off on Fridays on account of the fact that it "did not look good," she then decided to take off on the following Monday when she did have class. This time, she refused to help find a substitute and HR had to come up with a solution on their own. Power to her!

‘Take it, I'm leaving’: Coworker demands the receptionist's office after she spends her free time fixing it up, she complies by leaving the company altogether

Fail Blog - Mon, 03/25/2024 - 10:00

For some reason in modern offices, an employee rarely gets to have their own office. The concept of 'open work space' in which everyone, even high-up employees, has to work in one big space with no separation from each other. This concept might have been cute for a little while, but now it seems like the only reason why it's still around is because it saves the company a lot of money, since they can rent much smaller offices.

Which is what I thought about while reading this story of this employee on Reddit. This receptionist was working at a company for a while when she discovered a supply closet filled with supplies that no one was using. She asked her boss if she could turn the space into an office for herself, and he agreed on the condition she would do it on her own time, so that's what she did. A week later, a colleague of hers saw her office and demanded to have it for himself, which the boss agreed to despite the receptionist's protests. She didn't stay for long after that…

‘It's cost them $50k’: Guy leaves 1,500+ one-star reviews after getting swindled at the car dealership

Fail Blog - Mon, 03/25/2024 - 09:00

There's nothing more frustrating than getting ripped off and there's no place more notorious for duping their customers than a car dealership. While they may not be snake oil salesmen, car salesmen are pretty darn close, leveling up their deceptions with a stiff handshake and a greasy haircut. 

But the guy in our next story would not go down without a fight… A fight in the review section. 

After setting up a purchase at a dealership across state lines (with signed paperwork, a paid deposit, and everything wrapped up in a nice, neat bow), the grimy salesman at the car lot still dared to try and swindle this guy into buying a more expensive model. They probably never imagined that this failed bait-and-switch would result in a plumeted ranking online. This petty customer spent the next 2-3 years writing bad reviews in his spare time, bringing their 4.5-star rating down to a 1.9.

I guess there's one car dealership manager out there that regrets saying, 'Go ahead and leave a bad review'. Scroll for the entire story of epic vengeance and malicious compliance.

Hissterical Series of Cute Cats Simultaneously Embracing Their Inner Weirdos and Drama Queens

LOL Cats - Mon, 03/25/2024 - 09:00

Hey, cool cats. It's no secret that we often refer to cats as adorable little weirdos. Likewise we also often refer to them as total and full-fledged drama queens (and kings, of course). But honestly, we find that they are constantly embracing both of these attributes, even simultaneously. They have a flare for the dramatics that's in their feline DNA. We human feline appreciators would not have them any other way, our cats march to the beats of their own little drums and we adore that. Their independence is inspiring, despite not actually being independent in the financial sense, that's where we come in. 

Anyway, we figured we would take a break from all the craziness of the internet to focus on a splendid series of cats engaging their inner weirdos as well as their inner drama queens in a fabulous array of cute cat photos. Go ahead, and enjoy all of the cuteness and feline goodness we have to offer you today!

'He was entering that entire subdivision... as "Do Not Deliver"': HOA tips so badly on pizza order that manager calls them to complain

Fail Blog - Mon, 03/25/2024 - 08:00

If you've ever wondered what you could do to make a pizza parlor blacklist you, check out this story. I know what you're thinking: what do you mean you can get blacklisted by a pizza place? Aren't they supposed to deliver to wherever you tell them to when you place your order?

I was surprised to learn that they can and will ban people from ever ordering again. I thought that was something managers reserved for teenagers who prank call them with giant pizza orders sent to addresses that don't exist. But no! It turns out that there are some adults who are so impolite that a manager will ban them forever. 

At least for one employee, u/kytulu, their manager had their back. While some supervisors will let customers walk all over them, this guy knew which battles were worth picking. The manager actually called the offending party back to give them a piece of his mind. Clearly, the HOA group had never given much consideration to tipping etiquette… let's hope they've learned their lesson. Next time they order a pie (from a different pizza joint, obviously) they'll know better than to be stingy. 

Up next, these people shared the shocking things that wedding objectors had to say, like one groom's dad who loudly announced, "It's not too late, son!

Boomer Dad Volunteers To Cat-Sit, Sends The Most Hilarious Boomer Style Photo Updates To Cat's Parents

LOL Cats - Mon, 03/25/2024 - 08:00

Hey, friends. It's truly striking one of the differences between generational groups. For example, the way one approaches technology varies astronomically between generational divides. We often refer to blurry pictures, selfies with a hint of a fingertip in the frame as total boomer style and not at all tech-savvy photos. 

Well, when one boomer dad volunteered to cat-sit for his kid, the cat's parents received a series of hilarious boomer-style photo updates that needed to be shared with the wide expanse of the internet. And for this, we are thankful to the cat's parents. Dad sent various photo updates, at least two out of four of them were thoroughly blurry, and the others featured half a slice of Dad's face. We would expect nothing less than hilarious, and nothing less than hilarious we received. Regardless of the style of photo updates, it's abundantly evident that the cat in question was having a grand old time with her sitter.

'It’s satisfying watching the management scramble': IT department brought to a standstill when upper management decides they need to approve everything

Fail Blog - Mon, 03/25/2024 - 07:00

There's this thing that happens every now and again in organizations where someone, usually high up on the food chain, decides that everything—every decision, order, expense, or report—needs to pass across their desk. They do so severely underestimating the gravitas of what they've just requested, with little comprehension of just how many things they're going to be handling, dependent on their pen stroke to proceed. Of course, maybe not right away, but at some point, things are going to begin piling up. And when everything is waiting on your approval, nothing is getting done, and the peeved-off workers who have been deprived of all agency in their roles aren't going to make things any easier for you by complying with your demand to the letter.

You've probably read about or experienced this situation before, and if you've been hanging around here or r/MaliciousCompliance for long, then you've certainly seen this exact scenario play out in a similar story. This story is no different, with upper management deciding they need to keep a tighter leash on something that they don't understand in the name of chasing even higher profits—bringing the whole thing to a standstill.

20 Mildly Annoyed Cats Taking Their Airplane Ears To Brand New Heights

LOL Cats - Mon, 03/25/2024 - 07:00

One of the things that we love the most as cat owners is seeing our cats react to things. It doesn't even matter what it is. It can be anything from cats reacting to other animals with shock, to cats reacting to cats reacting to closed doors with seething hatred, all the way to cats reacting to video games with other cats in them with utter fascination. Whatever gets a reaction our of our cats is something that we love and cherish. 

Whether their reaction is one of surprise or contentment or mild enjoyment… we love it. And when our cats are mildly annoyed or taken aback ever so slightly by something and their ears do that thing when they point in either direction in the sharpest and cutest way… the thing that in the cat community we call "airplane ears", now that is a reaction that we truly adore.

'The company collapsed without me': Overworked employee quits after being put on probation, company fires entire management team shortly after that

Fail Blog - Mon, 03/25/2024 - 06:00

This might be petty, but it is extremely satisfying to hear that the toxic company you worked for and carried on your back is crumbling without you. Even though you might actually care about the work or the clients, if you left (or even asked to leave) without being appreciated, it feels good to know that at least karma had your back.

Which is what happened to this employee in this Reddit story. After OP (original poster) threw their back out at the job, they were put on a performance improvement plan, which basically means they were on probation at work. OP didn't like being underappreciated, so they left shortly after that. Now, 6 months later, with a great new job at hand, OP saw that the old company posted job ads for the director, manager, supervisor, etc… Basically, everyone who disrespected OP while they were there.

When Cat Training Goes Wrong: Cat Learns That Scratching Furniture Is Bad, Does It On Purpose To Get Corrected And Get Treats

LOL Cats - Mon, 03/25/2024 - 06:00

You know how people say that it's impossible to train a cat? They're wrong. You can train a cat. It might not be easy, but it's possible. For some people. And some cats. In some highly specific situations. Because let's be real- yes, it's possible to train a cat, but odds are that your cat training is going to go very wrong. Hilariously wrong. Most likely, your cat will end up training you

Hey, don't be mad at yourself. Even the CIA failed at training cats. And although it's rough to realize that you have been outsmarted by your feline and that your months and possibly years of training was pointless… you do have to admit that, looking back on it, it is hilarious. And that's what the person in this thread is going to realize eventually. Yes, it hurts now, but eventually, you'll let the cat win and look back at this moment and laugh.

'They tried to deny my unemployment claim': Top 10+ "HR is not your friend" stories

Fail Blog - Mon, 03/25/2024 - 05:00

Let this serve as a friendly remember to never trust that HR has your back. No matter how charming their smiles are or how friendly they may seem when you're making small talk in the kitchenette, do not be fooled into thinking that anyone in the HR department is supporting anyone other than the head honchos. 

The grim part of this truth is that it may not even be HR's fault at the end of the day. They too are doing their jobs in an already established system. However, some of these stories certainly demonstrate the lengths some HR employees will go to carry out their boss's wishes. These anecdotes were compiled from the following r/AskReddit thread. 

Keep scrolling below for the full list. When you're done, feel free to take a look at this story about a job candidate whose potential salary was suddenly halved during the final interview round.

‘Good luck, you're going to need it’: Overworked employee deletes company data from software he created after CEO fires him without an explanation

Fail Blog - Sun, 03/24/2024 - 16:00

Being an employee or being self-employed, there is a constant feud about which one is better. Some would prefer being independent because you get to control the hours in which you work, you don't have anyone to answer to, and you are free to make your own decisions. Others would say that being an employee is actually a lot easier, working the 9 to 5 and then enjoying carefree evenings, without having to carry the burden of being your own boss.

Another huge disadvantage of being an employee is the fact that you are constantly being judged and observed by other people, and it is even worse when you are underappreciated for your hard work. The employee in this Reddit story had to deal with this exact problem, even after they proved themselves as a valuable asset to the company. A year after OP (original poster) joined the company, and after receiving great feedback from the CEO, OP was unexpectedly fired. Wanting to prove just how much the company is going to miss them, OP denies access to the automation software they created while being on the job.
