'What a complete waste of my time': Micromanager tries to get employee written up for forgetting to take notes, manager's boss intervenes and fires her

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/11/2023 - 13:00

Some managers spend way too much time micromanaging than getting anything productive done. We all know what it's like to have a manager who seemingly has made it their only job to watch you like a hawk. Perhaps that intense vigilance is just in your head… just kidding, you're probably not wrong. Most people with authority like to spend more time flexing that authority than using it for good. In fact, when I have found myself in a position like this employee, I don't even care if the manager uses their forces for good. I just want them to get off my back and let me do my job in peace. Unfortunately, micromanaging people also do not have the greatest understanding of the art of letting go, so you're pretty much stuck with them until someone quits or gets fired.

Relatable Memes Of Cats Experiencing The Monday Moodies

LOL Cats - Mon, 12/11/2023 - 13:00

Oh man, it has happened again. We were pretty sure that this week it would not happen, but alas it did. The unstoppable force that is Monday has flung itself around the bend once more to slap us across the face with its soggy palm. Another week of claustrophobic commutes, mindless meetings and dumb deadlines await us at the office. And worst of all our precious feline fur babies have been left behind at home, all alone.

It is tough dealing with this uncomfortable reality but alas that is what we are dealing with today. So to help you get through at least the rest of this day we have collected a list of relatable memes of cats who are, much like you, also experiencing the Monday moodies. From the cats who cannot handle their work place regulations and are hell bent on finding the law that prevents them from jumping on the counter, to the cats splayed out on their keyboard waiting for the next inane email to come through, to the entitled kitties taking up reserved seating on the train, these felines have most certainly had enough of Mondays and they are not afraid to show it.

'Grandma got me a dollar store electric toothbrush': 40+ People who were shocked by the terrible presents they received on Christmas morning

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/11/2023 - 12:00

It's that time of the year to begin planning what you'll gift your friends and loved ones for the holidays. There are so many wonderful parts of the holiday season, and gathering with your favorite people for a meal and a gift exchange is one of those great times. 

Gift-giving is a common thing folks stress about during this time of year, though. There's always a few people in your circle who you just have no idea what to get for them. Then, when you ask them what they want, they insist they don't need anything. But if they're family, and you're getting presents for everyone, you'll still want to gift them a nice thing. 

Regardless of the present, we're taught pretty early in life to always react with positivity and gratefulness when we're given a gift. After all, that person took the time to go to the store and get a present and wrap it. At times, though, we're just left wondering what in the world was going through someone's head while they were picking said gift. These people below shared the worst presents they ever got, and it might make you feel better about your own personal worst-gift-ever moment. 

Next up, "Susan the Snack Stealer" tried to pull some shenanigans at the office potluck, but her colleagues were ready to confront her-- as a group.  

Typical Orange Cat Behavior: Meet The Cat Who Constantly Pretends To Be Eating For No Reason At All (Video)

LOL Cats - Mon, 12/11/2023 - 12:00

Orange cats. If you hear that and you don't immediately think "braincell", then… where have you been? All cats are ameowzing, don't get us wrong. But orange cats are… unique in a way that no other group of cats is. There is "cat behavior', and then there is "orange cat behavior". And what makes the difference is that all orange cats share one braincell. A single one. Between all of them. And you never know which cat has it each day. All you know is that most orange cats are… well, you'll see. 

The ginger cat in this video is no different than other orange cats. It seems that the braincell has simply not reached him yet, and if that means that this kitty spends its days chewing on nothing for no heckin' reason at all… then we won't judge. We will just sit here and giggle.

‘Here you go, Mr. Gift Police’: Woman gets petty after brother-in-law enforces strict rules for family Secret Santa

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/11/2023 - 11:00

Whatever happened to gift-giving being fun? These days, getting people gifts is about as frustrating and difficult as finding a job with health insurance. There are the people who are impossible to shop for, and then the people who demand items on their wish lists that are uncomfortably pricey. There are the people who don't want to be festive in the slightest, and the people who go so over-the-top with celebratory decorations that you think you're in some sort of dystopian version of the North Pole. Unfortunately for your mental bandwidth and for your bank account, gift-giving is not going to stop any time soon. You just have to close your eyes and get through it.

‘They turned down a HOME COOKED CHRISTMAS DINNER': Server flabbergasted when her monster-in-law insists on having Christmas dinner at her restaurant, forcing her to work on her day-off

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/11/2023 - 10:00

There's nothing better than a home cooked dinner during the holidays. Although things get crazy when family rolls into town, there's always the solace of having a delicious multi-course meal together of all your wintry favorites accompanied by the coveted leftovers that you'll have waiting for you in the fridge. When you have insufferable in-laws, the only consolation prize of enduring a family dinner is that take-home tupperware they fill at the end of the night. 

So what would you do if your mashed potatoes and ham were taken away from you?

'I desperately need my [bonus]': Boss withholds holiday bonuses and throws a Christmas party instead, ignoring the votes of the majority of the office

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/11/2023 - 09:00

If you had the choice between a bundle of cash and a cringey office Christmas party, which would you chose? For some, the Christmas bonus means a new set of tires or an in-home heater repair, but to others they'd rather peacock through the workplace, guzzling free cocktails and flaunting their shiniest blazer. In our next story, a boss gave his employees the choice between a bonus or a party, but then promptly ignored the results of the vote to suit his own fancies.

Apparently some show ponies just want to galavant around the office, regardless of what everyone else want's to do with superfluous company funds. 

Scroll to read how one woman decided to retaliate against a showboat boss and how she plans to get her holiday bonus anyways. After this, here's another holiday workplace drama where a woman stole the Christmas gifts out from under the office tree, but ended up getting glitter-bombed by a boobytrapped present.

'She got her comeuppance... at the office Christmas potluck': "Susan the Snack Stealer" tries to hoarde food at the office holiday potluck, gets confronted by the entire office

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/11/2023 - 08:00

This woman was a notorious food thief… until there was a showdown at the office potluck.

When someone gains a nickname like "Susan the Snack Stealer," you can quickly figure out what type of person they are. Clearly, this woman had a reputation around her office for being a serial snack snatcher. Due to her entitled attitude, she was completely fine with pilfering her coworker's sodas, granola bars, and chocolate (which they bought with their own money and brought to work to eat). 

When you're hungry, you don't always make the best decisions. I wonder if Susan felt any remorse after stealing those morsels. It's one thing if someone is stealing because they're genuinely hungry. But for others, it's like a game to see what they can get away with. They thrive off of the tension. Will they get caught, or will they get away with it? Every sneaky theft is a thrill to these people.

'She tried to push me out of my chair and take it': Elderly woman tries ejecting young man from wheelchair in supermarket after he refuses to give it to her

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/11/2023 - 07:00

Public spaces always give me the ick. 

There are too many people strutting about, scanning the busy streets for strangers to tell their woes to. This would not bother me so much if I didn't always end up the target of a long, drawn-out conversation about how much someone hates their boss, how their kids are acting up in school, or how their cat ran away (again). Maybe I have a wholesome, 'Please approach me and tell me your life story' face, or maybe these people just take a random pick from the crowd, but the result for me personally – is to avoid human interaction when I'm outside at all costs.

This poor man was rolling his way around in his wheelchair at a supermarket when a complete Karen approached him and demanded he give her his chair. These are the kinds of stories you can't make up… I have got to hand it to this dude, because his reaction led to a literal chase. Karen was following him around, trying to knock him out of the chair, and he was whizzing away, making sure she didn't catch him. Scroll down to read the rest…

Then, next up, check out this story about a senior employee who quit after being written up for coming to help out on his day off, leaving his boss to deal with the holiday rush all alone.

'That's close to $1,200': Principal outlaws a teacher's homemade ergonomic desk chair; teacher forces HR to replace his entire workstation to comply with the same 'health and safety rules'

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/11/2023 - 06:00

Before working from home and outfitting a workstation in my living room, I never realized how expensive desk chairs could be. After being initially shocked by the multitude of chairs online that cost $1,000+ for an 'ergonomic design', it made me question how important it was to be comfortable for 8 hours a day at my desk. But after spending two minutes in those terrible cheapo chairs (you know the ones at every hotel conference room or call center), I decided it was worth the cash to get something comfy. 

In our next story, a teacher got creative with his desk setup design. As we all know, teachers have some shoddy working conditions and are largely expected to fund the specs of their own home room. So u/Brilliant-Delay1410 decided to make their own cozy desk chair out of a recycled seat from his old Jeep Wrangler. That's right, OP had the most comfortable seat in the room, which could be the the coolest, most creative thing ever… right? 

However, his jealous principal did not agree.

Scroll for the entire story of how this creative teacher got the luxurious workstation of his dreams after being hoodwinked with a health and safety complaint over his epic, homemade chair. 

The Cutest (And Silliest) 'If I Fits I Sits' Cat Pictures Directly From Our Ameowzing ICanHasCheezburger Audience

LOL Cats - Mon, 12/11/2023 - 06:00

It is common knowledge that cats are liquid. It simply is. If you didn't know that yet… have you been living under a rock? If you think that is physically impawssible, we're here to tell you that it is, and that it also doesn't matter. Because cats do whatever they want. Cats do not care about silly things like physics and the laws of nature. Cats are beyond that stuff. They are elevated. And they are, indeed, liquid. And so it follows that: if cats are liquid, cats can also fit in ridiculous spaces.

If I fits, I sits. Such is the famous saying. We don't know which cat said it first, but we know that they have all been saying it since. One does not need to be a unique cat to follow this principle, because all cats are liquid, and all cats will fits if they choose to sits.

‘Don’t go through them too fast’: Supervisor tells employee to slow down productivity, cue malicious compliance

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/11/2023 - 05:00

Supervisors should always be careful what they wish for when providing instructions to employees. This is especially true when it applies to college students with minimal work experience, who absolutely will follow everything their supervisors tell them word-for-word. 

I remember in my first internship I was getting coffee for my boss and had gotten so used to his very specific order that I literally froze at Starbucks when one time, they did not have his order. I simply could not function or think of a suitable replacement, so I came back empty-handed. Again, if you give an intern specific instructions that they are expected to follow to the syllable, they will have no idea what to do when unexpected circumstances arise, as they are wont to do in life. 

How ironic.

'I made her fail': Student tells of getting paired with her tormentor for a group project, makes sure she fails

Fail Blog - Mon, 12/11/2023 - 04:00

There are definitely some (many) parables out there that teach us that we should always seek to rise above the actions of our tormenters, taking the high road and killing them with kindness rather than sinking to their level. Still, you'll often find that the reality in life is that this isn't always an option, and your tormenters won't give you any space to choose any other path than the one that has been provided to you. And, the one that has been provided to you (often of their own making) becomes the only way forward but also the way to turn the table and settle the score. 

This student was paired with her own tormented, another student who had made her life incredibly difficult during their time at school together. When the other student refused to contribute to the project, the student couldn't pass up the chance to allow her to fail.
