Carefully Curated Collection Of Cute And Comical Cat Memes For A Much-Needed Pick-Me-Up

LOL Cats - Sun, 03/24/2024 - 06:00

You know what we need right now? A pick-me-up. We need something unforgivingly silly and unconditionally pawsitive. We're done with the craziness of the world. We're done with the news. We're done with worrying. All that we want, for the next few hours at least, are wholesome cat memes. Yes, that is our one request, and we are unwilling to compromise on it. We made this collection of cute cat memes for ourselves. Because we needed it. But we know that you need it too, so we did the only right thing and decided to share it.

There is nothing that makes us smile quite in the same way as pawsitive cat memes. Yes, we love cute pics of cats and we love funny cat memes, but combining the two… that's purrfection if we have ever seen it. We hope you enjoy this collection as much as we did, everyone, and we wish you a pawsome day.

'They are about to lose a $3M contract because I resigned': Project manager gets denied raise, finds far better offer, leaves and takes big client with him

Fail Blog - Sun, 03/24/2024 - 05:00

If you feel like your bosses are taking advantage of you, you're probably right. When this realization occurs, it's always a good idea to write out the pros and cons of your current position, to think honestly and critically about the added value you bring to the company, and to assess whether or not your current employment status (salary, benefits, job title, etc.) accurately reflect the hard work you have put in over the course of your time at the company. 

This project manager worked his way up from being a construction worker to managing the entire team and then some, even bringing in multiple million-dollar contracts and jobs to the owners. By all accounts, he should have been up for a significant raise this year, but when he was denied, that pretty much confirmed how the company owners really felt about him and how they thought they could get away with this egregious level of neglect. At this point, the Redditor's experience made it simple to get a better offer elsewhere. What was even more impressive, however, was the fact that those million-dollar clients turned out to only want to work with him rather than the owners. 

Keep scrolling below to see how the owners reactions when their project manager announced not only his departure but his clients' decision to jump ship. For more stories like this, check out this post about this CEO who caused a mass quitting.

'The look on her face was PRICELESS': Thieving landlord flabbergasted when an ex-tenant lawfully reclaims his property

Fail Blog - Sun, 03/24/2024 - 04:00

Landlords have a nasty little habit of thinking they own you. As a renter, you're obligated to pay their mortgage and puff up a landlord's retirement fund, but at the end of the day, we owe them nothing but what's written on our lease. No landlord is entitled to claim your property–ever.

The guy in our next story put a stop to landlord thievery by exercising his lawful rights as a tenant (and human person). After enduring some family drama in his personal life and grieving the loss of his father, this young tenant could no longer continue living in his apartment. Although he previously had a decent relationship with his landlord, things went sour when they refused to return a seemingly meaningless piece of equipment to him after moving out. 

Although it may not seem like much to leave behind the router in your old apartment, there's nothing that entitles your landlord to your property–no matter how insignificant it seems. So with his back up against a wall and the police in his corner, this tenacious tenant stood up for himself–and all tenants–by reclaiming what was rightfully his… by force.  

'Their brain was left in the car': Customer gets roped into employee duties because he's 2 inches taller and can 'reach the top shelf'

Fail Blog - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 21:00

It's a little humiliating when you can't reach something on a high shelf. So much so that short folks have been climbing onto countertops, using broomsticks to destabilize out-of-reach items, and standing on swivel chairs for centuries just to avoid asking for help. But if there's no broomstick in sight and no counters to climb, who can we look to? 

Well, the guy in our next story apparently decided that a fellow customer, who was only 2" taller than him, was the perfect man to ask to reach the highest shelf in the store. Although it's pleasant to help out our fellow man, u/ajcorrao, a patron at a sporting goods store, was totally flummoxed when a man of the same stature came to him for assistance. With a desirable item floating high on the top shelf, this helpless customer seemingly thought that AJ's 2" of height was enough to give him a tactical advantage. 

To know how this silly story ends, scroll onward. Perhaps it'll lift your spirits knowing that even sitting at 5'9", there's someone out there who thinks you're taller than the Jolly Green Giant–or perhaps you'll get a kick out of a supremely delulu customer tale.

'Enjoy your inheritance': Elder Millennials cringe about 33 "keepsakes" they're leaving behind for the next generation

Fail Blog - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 20:00

If you're still hoarding an iPhone box from 2015, this is a PSA: Throw it away already! One man's trash may be another man's treasure, but future generations are going to have a mountain of ACTUAL trash to sift through. A lot of us elder millennials and Gen Xers have heaps of 'junk' that our kids are starting to cringe about. 

Does that make us any different than our own parents? 

40-somethings have a notoriously long list of "keepsakes" that'll ultimately find their way into the trash when our kiddos inherit them. But like the Boomers before us leaving behind crochet patchwork blankets, baseball cards, antique end tables, and semi-haunted family portraits, we'll be leaving behind band tees, Target birds, and half-used Bath and Body Works products. You're welcome, kids!

Scroll to cringe and get called out by this collection of memorabilia that's bound to find its way into the dumpster once us elder millennials are gone. 

22 Feisty Feline Friends Finding Comfort in Their Favorite Cardboard Box

LOL Cats - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 20:00

Hey there cat lovers! If you're a cat purrent, you probably know that our feline friends absolutely love cardboard boxes. You can buy them all the fancy toys in the world, laser pointers, stuffed toys, and cat trees, but they'll still be more interested in the box they came in. It can be a bit frustrating as a purrrent when you've carefully picked out the purrent toy for your fur baby, only to find them sitting in a box instead. One of my friends has an old cardboard box in every room of her house. Her cat follows her around everywhere, so she made sure there is always a cozy cardboard box around her cat to relax in. It's a bit of an odd thing, isn't it? I did a quick Google search to find out why cats love cardboard boxes so much, and it turns out that it makes them feel safe. The enclosed space helps them feel secure and relaxed, like they're in their own little sanctuary. It's a fascinating phenomenon but also a little weird, no? Check out these 22 adorable photos of cats below who just can't get enough of their cardboard boxes.

Gerald the Stray Cat Meows an SOS, Getting Saved by his Token Hooman Family Before Becoming Their Treasured Furrever Pet

LOL Cats - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 19:00

Hey cat lovers, are you ready to have your heartstrings tugged? Well, the married couple in our next story wasn't exactly prepared to have their whole world shaken by a single stray kitty either, but here we are. For years, this couple watched the timid tabby outside endure scorching summer days and freezing snowy winters, until finally, they gained the trust of a scared, lonely cat. 

Gerald, as he became fondly called, had visited the family for years before ever getting close enough to touch. Like an ethereal wisp of mystery, Gerald came and went as he pleased, enjoying occasional dinners with wilderness opossums and relaxing on the heating pad his eventual hoomans laid out for him. Until one day, he approached the house with a devastating limp and wounds from an obvious attack–he needed their help! 

Scroll for the entire story of how one couple gained the love and trust of a stray cat who never knew the meaning of family until he waltzed through the glass sliding door of destiny.

'If I have to go up to order, I'm not tipping': Working woman shares a hot take on tipping culture, raising torches and pitchforks in the comment section

Fail Blog - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 17:00

We've all been there, standing at the front of the line at the coffee shop and the blue-haired barista with an eyebrow piercing lethargically whips the iPad around towards you before saying, 'It's just going to ask a few questions'. We don't want to tip 35% but with the next customer in line breathing down our neck and the angry cashier in front of us, the peer pressure can be insurmountable. 

So if you're like me and you panic-click the percentage tip button, I have some refreshing news for you–we don't have to do that! We don't HAVE to tip just because the iPad is 'asking a few questions'. With the tipping culture getting out of hand, the cost of living going up, and the minimum wage resting at $7.25/hour, the customers are getting price gouged on every corner to make up for lost wages. Hmm, what if there was another way? 

One woman on the subway in NYC recently shared a hot take about tipping culture that's remarkably refreshing. After refusing to tip for the coffee in her hand (as the barista was mean and unhelpful), one working woman shines a flashlight on the cockroach-infested underbelly of forced tips, making folks grab their torch and pitchfork in the comment section–against The Man. 

Scroll for the full video of this particular hot take and you can be the judge on whether or not she's speaking the truth. For more from Kareem Rahma, click here for other Subway Takes!

‘Dude, I’m already here, are you kidding me': Customer wastes 3 hours of time and gas after arriving at car seller's home only to be told van is already sold

Fail Blog - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 16:00

One seller wasted 3 hours of his customer's time and gas money… Why? Who knows, people are awful, especially those selling on Marketplace.

The customer, who we'll call OP, took to Reddit to complain about his terrible experience. Basically, OP had seen a small van for a reasonable price online, and wanted to buy it in order to convert it. They reached out to the seller, telling them they were interested in buying the van and would like to come see it. All seemed to be going well, as the seller was responsive and told OP that he was welcome to come check it out. They exchanged information and decided on a time and a place for the following day. OP was excited about the van, and was really looking forward to taking a look at it in real life and possibly, buying it.

Unfortunately, that's not how it all played out. Scroll down for the full story, and then check out these entertaining 'rich people' stories.

'I put on my Harriet the Spy raincoat and went to work': Heroic stranger vanquishes a cyberbully, hanging the culprit's dirty laundry in the college Dean's office

Fail Blog - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 15:00

Who has your back? We can sometimes count on our friends to be in our corner, but when they're not around, who will step up and be a hero? If you're lucky (like the girl in our next story) the heroic white knight backing you up might just be a silent stranger online.

We all remember the days of the 'mean Internet'. Although there are still folks online hiding behind their screens and commenting vile things they'd never say to a person in real life, there was an era online where posters were completely unhinged. It was cyber warfare out there and the bullies were king. 

Our story begins back in the peak of this decade, in 2013, and we can find our hero solemnly scrolling Reddit online. They quickly discovered a cruel subreddit dedicated to fat-shaming strangers where people would post a covert photo of someone and then, like feral hyenas, the commenters would come for their pound of flesh with biting comments and mean jabs. 

Well, our hero wouldn't stand for that. Scroll for the entire story of how a hero became a sleuth, clearing out the worst offender on the sub and nearly getting them expelled from their college campus.

'My coworker has an obsession with my job position': Retail worker refuses to leave baby department, repeatedly asks coworker, "When are you leaving?"

Fail Blog - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 14:00

One person's odd fixation is making this retail worker uncomfortable. 

Retail work can be stressful, but it should never be because of your coworkers. The customers are known to be irritating, and some bosses have quotas that they pressure employees to hit. But your coworkers shouldn't ever be the most stressful part of a retail job, or any job for that matter. If they are, it's time to head to the human resources department, and let them handle the fallout. 

This person, u/asimplenobody27, has been working at the same retail store for a long time. They've become the head of the baby clothing department, and they enjoy it. As someone who did work in retail, I can confirm: the baby clothing is the cutest (and easiest) to fold. There are little shoes, bows on socks, and teeny tiny outfits, it's all adorable. This worker's coworker, who they refer to as Aileen, apparently loves the baby section. She loves it. She will not leave this section. It's getting weird for the original poster! They took to Reddit to share their story, and commenters gave them a ton of helpful advice. 

Next up, this person was infuriated after an online vendor requested "support" money to ship their product, demanding an additional $8!

Sleep-deprived nurse ruins neighboring college's 50-year-old tradition: '[They were] playing the same song on repeat between 8:00am and 6:00pm for 10 days'

Fail Blog - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 13:00

Kudos to this lady for not caring if she became the enemy of everyone at the neighboring college across the street. It's that level of commitment to not caring about what other people think that we all aspire to channel one day. 

She shared her story via this thread on Reddit's r/pettyrevenge subreddit, where she explained what happened after a particularly awful week in which the college played the same song loudly on repeat from eight in the morning to six at night for ten days straight. Evidently, this was a part of a silly 50 year tradition at the school as they were preparing for an annual campus-wide event. Still, the song portion of the tradition has got to be infuriating for other folks too, so we are certain that some folks at the school are low-key thankful for this woman's audacity.

Crazy Caturday Memes To Set Your Soul Alight

LOL Cats - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 13:00

Being a feline is no easy feat. You are a top predator in the body of a furry little baby. You are easily picked up by hooman hands and forced into unwanted cuddles, while being able to jump between rooftops like a superhero. The juxtaposition is maddeningly difficult. And this madness is no more present than on Caturday when our facetious felines are able to freely express themselves in full view of their hooman pawrents. As such, we take a moment today to celebrate this juxtaposition and our love for cats with this list of crazy Caturday memes to set your soul alight.

From the catto who loves to make a sandwich, but hates putting back all the stuff, to the tiny kitten passed out on its back, tired after a long day of thuggin out, to the mentally unstable feline who watches others get medicated for things that it does every day. These wild feline memes are a unique look into the complex world that exists in the minds of our cats.

'If I were your wife I’d ask for an IQ test': Podcast advice causes new father to ruin his marriage

Fail Blog - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 12:00

This dude wants to know if he ruined his marriage… And it seems like he easily could have done permanent damage. 

There's nothing the internet loves more than a good trend. Some trends come and stay for a while, like certain Tiktok dances or cooking trends. Others are just a flash in the pan, and only hold viral appeal for a day or two. Apparently, in some podcasting communities, a new trend has emerged: requesting your pregnant spouse take a DNA test to prove that the kid is actually yours. 

Taking a DNA test is kind of a big deal, and yet the father in this story, u/11herb, was so blase about asking his pregnant partner to take one. The implication of asking your spouse to take a pregnancy test is that you think they're cheating. What a heavy accusation to levy at your wife and the woman who just grew you a baby in her own body for ten months! 

The father told their story in a swiftly deleted post that was shared by Twitter user @sheikyerbouti_. He also replied to comments with additional information (though the comments this dude replied to weren't available anymore, so you have to read between the lines a bit to figure out what he was replying to). It's an interesting look at what happens when you let YouTubers or podcasters turn your brain to mush, and we hope that this father updates us in the future with the outcome of their marriage dilemmas. 

Up next, these job candidates flubbed their interviews so badly, like one person who admitted that they "work better in a slow-paced environment."
