'You just suspended me!': Employee quits when blundering manager suspends them and then expects them to show up for a shift

Fail Blog - Sat, 12/17/2022 - 06:00

Giving someone a punishment that prohibits them from doing something and then subsequently expecting them to still do that thing is downright insane. The entire point of suspending an employee from the workplace is that they have committed or exhibited some type of behavior that the employer has deemed unacceptable for the workplace. Hence, it's a way of having them temporarily not be there to either cool off or so the employer can figure out the next steps. Expecting the employee to show up when they have received a suspension might be a sure sign that they shouldn't have been suspended in the first place and the manager is just abusing their power.

'I am over dealing with them:' Guy gets blamed for not getting his entitled parents to his sister's wedding on time

Fail Blog - Sat, 12/17/2022 - 05:00

This guy is not his parents' keeper! He would also be the first person to say that. For those of you who are type A like myself, being surrounded by folks who have no sense of timeliness can be as anxiety-inducing as the impending apocalypse. Sure, that may not make any logical sense but many of you probably know what I'm talking about. This guy certainly does.

 

He shared his story via this thread on Reddit's r/AmITheA**hole subreddit and discussed how his parents are always late to every single event. When it came to his sister's wedding, he decided to go off to the church on his own so as to not miss anything. Of course, his parents showed up 30 minutes late, and now everyone (including the bride) is now blaming the Redditor for not being responsible for them. If they had asked him to make sure they got to the wedding on time, that might be a different story. However, the fact that the parents were incredibly late to their own daughter's wedding is 100% on them. To the original poster: we respect you.

15 Funniest Videos of Cats Experiencing a Winter Wonderland of Snow for the First Time

LOL Cats - Sat, 12/17/2022 - 01:00

You would think that most indoor fuzzy feline friends were not meant for the snow. Their delicate cute little toe beans having to touch that icy powder? Sounds wrong. However, some absolutely adore the snow! They dig deep down within their soul and find their snow leopard roots and dive right for the fluffiest mound of snow to attack. It's adorable seeing a floof ball kitty cat fly through the air and then disappear into a mountain of nothingness. They are the void, and it is the cutest void ever. However, you will find that some kitties place one paw on the white stuff that came from the sky and simply say "nope." Still, just seeing that adorable smol lil baby paw print in the snow is the cutest. So we've gathered some of our favorite videos of cats experiencing snow for the very first time and we would catch them over and over again. Enjoy!

Chonkiest Fat Cat Memes of the Week for People Who Love a Squishy Tummy

LOL Cats - Fri, 12/16/2022 - 15:00

There are a few things that are always consistent with cats: 

  1. They're going to pretend they don't care about you (but they do, secretly)
  2. They always have ridiculous names like Mr. Bigglesworth or Potatochip
  3. They are cutest and most irresistible when they are enormously fat

Your little Miss Pumpkinpatch, the rescued orange tabby, is a perfect example. Look down at your ankles right now… Is your cat laying on your feet or sitting at your ankles? If so, measure the width of the cat, the diameter per say, of the girthiest section of your cat. Is it greater than 20 inches? If so, you got yourself a fatty. This is especially true with orange cats of course, but each fat cat is its own embodiment of Garfield. They're chonky. They're sassy. And they love to eat. Give those bb's what they want and deserve-- More wet food! Do your best though to avoid lasagna, I hear it's actually deadly.

Horrible Ad Fails Made By Complete Idiots

Fail Blog - Fri, 12/16/2022 - 13:00

You have to wonder what they were thinking. I know that everyone makes mistakes. But to make a mistake and have it approved by everyone at a company, so much so that the mistake remains there all the way until after it's printed in a magazine, on a sign, or even on a billboard? The number of possibilities to catch said mistake and rethink things…it's gobsmacking, really.

Cabinet installers' viral screw-up demonstrates the extreme power of MRI magnets in the worst way

Fail Blog - Fri, 12/16/2022 - 12:00

One guy's massive MRI goof is a window into curiosity and science. 

This video, shared by ericmartinmoney, is truly enlightening. It answers an age-old question, which surely terrifies all of us when we go in to get an MRI. The technician will ask if you're wearing anything metal, because the MRI is literally a giant magnet. You then take off your earrings or belt, and take a peaceful rest inside the machine as it makes noises at concert volume. But you never actually get to find out how powerful the MRI magnet is… until someone didn't follow the rules when installing a cabinet, resulting in this enlightening video.

The video creator, Eric Martin, claims to work as a sub-contractor with several business ventures, MRIs being one of them. He shared this amazing story, which gained 8.6 million views. Way to turn a major fail into a viral sensation! He mentioned at the end of the video that he'll update the internet when the machine is fully fixed, but in the comments, he mentioned that things have changed since then. I do feel bad for this injured inanimate object, and I hope the MRI machine heals from its big boo-boo and can accommodate patients in the future. As for the cabinet guy…I hope he has good insurance and has learned a valuable lesson about safety in the workplace.

'With Family Like This, Who Needs Enemies?' : Woman Threatens to Kick Niece Out of Her Home After Visit From Husband

Fail Blog - Fri, 12/16/2022 - 11:30

Ah, college. Specifically, exam season. Those were the days… the days I spent ripping my hair out and biting my fingernails until they no longer resembled fingernails. They had this jagged, stressed look about them, which basically represented how I felt inside. I'm certain many of you can relate. Everyone hates studying for finals, but nobody has a choice in the matter. And those who know, have compassion for those who are still in those difficult stages of trying to pass said exams. But not everybody is so kind.

 

One woman in particular, had the nerve to tell her niece off for making her husband a coffee as he came to drop off a report she had forgotten at home. I realize you are missing context. For that, you are going to have to scroll down my friends, because my fingers kind of hurt at this point in the day, and I don't really feel like typing the whole thing out. The woman explains it better anyway.

'Are you willing to go through UNPAID training?': Ridiculous job posting from choosing beggars sparks online debate

Fail Blog - Fri, 12/16/2022 - 11:00

Isn't this kind of thing illegal? This job posting has got to be one of the most explicitly messed up ones we have ever come across on Indeed, LinkedIn, etc. It was posted via this thread on Reddit's r/ChoosingBeggars subreddit, and let's just say that the folks in the comments section were quick to call out just how unfair and outdated unpaid work really is.

 

These hiring managers required applicants to accept the idea of giving 4 hours per day of unpaid training (that's half a full work day, folks) for an entire 4-6 weeks. To assume that people would be willing to accept that is to capitalize on an assumed sense of desperation among job seekers rather than to present your workplace as an ideal one for future employees. On that note, let's also kiss any form of a "pay your dues" mentality goodbye.

Workers discuss the reasons they like working from the office versus working from home

Fail Blog - Fri, 12/16/2022 - 10:30

Working from home has a lot of benefits: You can get personal tasks done during breaks and generally have much more self-determination over your time. Plus, there's no wasted time and money involved with commuting. You generally get more time to spend with your family due to increased free time, and this can do wonders for your personal relationships.

'Why is there a girl here?': Female electrician from Utah shares the eye roll-inducing interactions she's had while working the trade

Fail Blog - Fri, 12/16/2022 - 10:00

Trade jobs are needed more than ever. And with more electric powering coming into demand, electricians are one of the trades that are at the top of the list. So why wouldn't women want to become electricians? The main thing probably being that it's extremely male-dominated, and thus riddled with sexist ideologies concerning women working in the trade.
