'Oopsie, hung up on ya': Guy gets back at relentless debt collectors, infuriates them until they stop calling

Fail Blog - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 11:00

Sometimes, the only way to get back at people who won't stop reaching out to you is by giving them a taste of their own medicine. 

Today, we're not talking about annoying relatives, friends, or coworkers. We are talking about receiving an endless number of calls from debt collectors who are clearly looking for someone else. In this instance, we have a Redditor who recently purchased a new phone and who has been getting nonstop calls 24/7. It's not the kind of thing you can easily ignore after a while, especially when he has to answer from unknown callers all the time for work, so he never knew when it was something serious. 

Eventually, he developed a short script for himself to infuriate the debt collectors on the other line. At first, he would pretend to be reasonable and to know the person they are looking for. Then, right before giving them useful information, he would hang up. This would continue like a cycle until the debt collectors gave up. Clearly, it worked for him so why wouldn't it work for the rest of us? We will be trying this soon and will report back.

For more stories like this, here is one about a hospital worker who found a loophole when it came to overtime pay.

Top 25+ Unpopular Opinions of the Week

Fail Blog - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 10:00

Last week I was at the office, minding my own business, when the coworker sitting next to me had a Zoom meeting. He lacks office etiquette, so he didn't put on headphones, opting to just talk loudly in the middle of an open space instead. I was shocked at his behavior, and confided in another coworker, who disagreed with my disdain, and said it was 'perfectly okay to hold meetings in an open space without putting on headphones'. I think they're both crazy, but opinions differ.

That is what I have brought to you today… differing opinions from all kinds of different people. The one thing they have in common? They are all unpopular opinions. Scroll down to read the funny, entertaining, and frankly obnoxious outlooks some people have on life. When you're done rolling your eyes, check out these wholesome posts that are sure to wipe that frown off your face and replace it with a smile.

27 Funny Felines Impurrsonating Pawesome Poultry By Purrfectly Relaxing Like A Rotisserie Chicken

LOL Cats - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 10:00

If there's one thing you can expect from cats, it's to expect the unexpected. Isn't that right, I Can Has-ers? They're always finding their way into the middle of some seriously silly cat shenanigans, sleeping in weird pawsitions, or getting into an argument with a ghost. You may think you've seen it all, but we've got a few tricks up our sleeves that we have yet to reveal. Here is one of them - we have officially found a new silly position for cats to relax in, one that looks both terribly uncomfortable and pawsitively ridiculous - and we like to call it the "rotisserie chicken".

These crazy cats failed their loaf exams and turned to impurrsonating pawesome poultry instead. The "rotisserie chicken" pose is known for its curve-alicious hind legs, usually featuring some awkwardly bent chicken wings in the front. Scroll down to see all these silly kitties below, but just like going to the grocery store, don't go hungry, or else you might bite something you're not supposed to!

‘Dude, I know it's you…’: Man confronts neighbor who attempted to steal his TV, neighborly dispute ensues

Fail Blog - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 09:00

When buying a house, one of the most crucial things to think about is the neighbors. Depending on the quality of your neighbors, your tenor may be enjoyable at best or excruciating at worst.

The story that follows describes an account of a disgruntled individual who found out that his elderly neighbor had stolen his television. The Original Poster (OP) was looking forward to receiving an extravagant, brand-new television that he had ordered. But when OP received a response from the seller confirming that the delivery had occurred, he knew something wasn't quite right… Rumor has it that OP's neighbor ordered an identical television at the exact same time, so when the delivery man arrived to deliver the package, the neighbor just pointed him in the direction of his house. 

OP initially made an effort to defend himself against his neighbor and reclaim the television that is legally his, but his attempts were unsuccessful since the neighbor continued to insist that he had ordered an identical television and picked it up from the seller. From then on, things only got worse! So, if you're interested in learning the specifics of what happened between OP and the entitled neighbor, as well as if OP was able to get his television back, make sure to read the story below! Additionally, when you're finished, don't forget to read the story about the arrogant teen who felt he was superior to the diligent door-to-door salesmen!

LOL Cats - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 09:00

Hey, friends! You know that adorable moment when you come home from a long day of work and your cat is curled up in a purrfect bun position as if it just popped out of the oven and is ready for consumption? We know that moment all too well. Our cats have a penchant for imitating baked goods! Buns, loaves, baguettes, cinnamon rolls, you name it they can assume it. At first, we were not sure if it was just us referring to cats as baked goods, or if this was an internet phenomenon! 

Today, however, we are focusing our extra attention on all things cat buns. The freshly baked cat buns we are serving up have been saturated with a dash of whimsy wholesomeness and a hefty dollop of whiskery wonder. Just in case you missed breakfast, these buns will adequately appease your hunger and leave you feeling dandy good all day long, trust us.

'Cheese from the dollar store': 30+ Purchases people will never make again

Fail Blog - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 08:00

These people had buying experiences that were so bad, they had to share it with the world. And thank goodness they did, because now we know a bunch of items that just aren't worth wasting money on. 

Buying a new thing only to have it not work is infuriating. Lately I've stopped buying things from the billion-dollar company named after a rainforest, because the stuff I get from there just does not work. You really do get what you pay for, sadly. I bought a few headphone accessories from one seller on the app, and they worked for about two weeks. Then, they slowly stopped working. How convenient: it was too late to ship them back by the time they broke. Sure, I saved money at first, but since I needed to buy dongles from the official retailer when the knockoffs didn't work, I learned my lesson.

I'm not alone in this experience, either. A lot of people in the thread below bought new tech or gear, only to realize that when their items broke, the company gave them the runaround. Like there was one poor stressed-out person who really needed a new laptop for their college classes, but when they got it, it was broken from the start. Customer support had them running in circles, calling different numbers and getting nowhere fast. They ended up not even being able to use their new computer! 

Check out u/1337ish's question they posed to the Ask Reddit community: "What is something that you are never… buying again?" The answers were very enlightening!

Hey, cat lovers! Today we are feeling…  tired. If only we could take a break from life for a few minutes and drift off to a peaceful slumber. Well, we are human, so unfortunately we don't have that luxury. Cats, on the other hand, sleep for about 12 to 16 hours a day on average.

Cats were born to snooze, we almost always catch our cats sleeping at any given time of the day. Now, on to the snoozing kitteh we are featuring here today. A terrific tuxedo cat born with a proficiency for face planting during naps stirred up an internet frenzy with his utter cuteness and silly sleeping habits!

The images featuring this snoozing feline are simply priceless, see for yourself!

Worker laments the firing of their 'crucial' supervisor who was leading their already understaffed team: 'I might just quit soon'

Fail Blog - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 07:00

Trying to keep up with an increasing workload on an understaffed team is a lot like trying to drive a car that only has three wheels. It's difficult to keep things moving forward without veering off course; things operate extremely inefficiently, and there's probably a lot of noise and scraping going on.

Of course, managing these situations is no easy task—not impossible for a talented manager, but only through a great deal of effort. For this reason, managers who manage to protect their already overworked teams from an organization that's trying to increase their workload earn themselves a great deal of respect from their subordinates. Still, despite being high-performing managers, these team leaders can often draw the ire of upper management, who regard the respect the manager has earned from their team as a liability. So, despite the fact that they're the ones keeping everything from falling to pieces, it's not uncommon to see these managers getting pushed out of organizations by these misguided upper managers.

This worker shared their experience of watching their supervisor being pushed out of their already understaffed team for literally no reason, leaving the already struggling workers with even less support than they already had. They shared their experience with this popular online community, telling of their experience and how things played out.

‘It's your duty as a brother’: Privileged parents attempt to take advantage of their son to give their preferred child financial independence

Fail Blog - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 06:00

Families are supposed to be your pillar of support, your safe haven, your anchor.  But in actuality, not every family is the idealized, Hallmark-movie type of family. How would you react if your family simply wanted you to be there to maintain their opulent way of life?

The story that follows is an account of a frustrated son. There has always been tension between the Original Poster (OP) and his parents. But as OP grew older and more mature, the relationship grew increasingly strained and the rift only deepened. That's why OP felt something strange was about to happen when his parents finally got in touch with him after a long absence. As anticipated, at their meeting, OP's parents asked that he provide financial support to his brother, who is financially reckless and has depleted all of his funds.

That being said, be sure to read the story below if you're interested in learning the specifics of what happened between OP and his parents and whether or not OP gave in to their demands! When you're finished, don't forget to read the story of the snobby teen who thought he was superior to the diligent door-to-door salesmen!

'They dinged my car': Guy gets even with bad driver, makes it impossible for him to pull out of his parking spot

Fail Blog - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 05:00

It's remarkable how immature people get when they're called out on their nonsense! We tend to associate this kind of "it wasn't me!" behavior with children when their parents catch them breaking the rules. However, we should be honest with ourselves at this point and admit that adults do this literally all the time. 

Here, we have an insensitive dude who aggressively got out of his car and dinged the neighboring driver's car in the parking lot. The other driver saw it happen and looked at them in the eye expecting an apology, only to receive dirty looks. In other words, they knew exactly what they were doing, which meant that they shouldn't have been surprised when they got just what was coming for them. Let's be real: the other driver could have done way more damage. Thankfully, he didn't do any physical damage to their car. You don't want to start that kind of beef with anyone. That being said, he make it incredibly difficult for this large fellow to get back into his car when he returned to the parking lot. 

Keep scrolling below for the full story and for the dude's reaction. For more stories like this, check out this post about another parking fiasco!

‘She should have seen it coming’: Employee gets back at micromanager by canceling all of her mailing subscriptions

Fail Blog - Sat, 03/23/2024 - 04:00

It is bad enough that most people have to deal with their own unwanted mailing list they somehow subscribed to, but to get someone else's emails? That is beyond annoying. And having to deal with that in the workplace? Even worse.

In this Reddit story, an employee was venting about an incredibly self-centered manager who was simply mean to everyone in the office. She would be unhelpful and rude towards other employees, and no one really knew why. But the one thing that made OP (original poster) really annoyed, was that this manager would constantly forward random email lists to employees. No one understood why she did it, it had nothing to do with the work, and it was simply a bother. To make it stop, OP decided to take action…

Hooman Shares Ferociously Funny Pictures of Unphotogenic Feline in Hissterical Thread, Internet Predicts Cat Will Become a Meme

LOL Cats - Fri, 03/22/2024 - 20:00

There is no such thing as an unphotogenic cat… or so I thought.

One hooman took to r/cats, sharing some hissterically unflattering pictures of their fluffy feline named Holly. After scrolling through them, I have to admit, they aren't the prettiest pictures… but the cat is still adorable. The response that this hooman got from fellow Redditors was absolutely hissterical… and some of them pointed out that purrhaps the hooman was just bad at taking pictures — purrhaps the cat was actually very photogenic. Holly's owner was quick to defend themselves, but I am suspicious… Like I said, there is no such thing as an unphotogenic cat.

In any case, this cat is about to become a meme, so scroll down through the awwdorably funny pics of Holly, and then check out these actual cat memes for feisty felines ready for a fiesta.

A Wholesome Bowl of 35 Funny Feline Memes for Cool Cats With a Whiskery Sense of Humor

LOL Cats - Fri, 03/22/2024 - 18:00

Why do cats act like it is the end of the world when you don't feed them every five seconds? My own fluffy critters, Spock and Leo, are super dramatic, and today they completely exaggerated. I went into the kitchen, one hour after having fed them mind you, and what did they do? With their supersonic hearing they ran in, yowling at the top of their little lungs, certain that they were going to get more food. When they realized they were not, they started pawing at my trousers, and Spock even tried climbing them. He forgets that he's not a kitten anymore, and he is way too chubby to hold himself up. I had to untangle them from me and give them a treat just so they would leave me alone. How do you handle your cute cats when they beg you for food, despite being well fed? I'm at a loss.

On that note, scroll down for a wholesome dose of cat memes, and then check out this fluffy feline named Frank who absolutely loved visiting the vet.
