'How is [it] legal?': Unhinged management tries to tell pregnant worker that she must wait for relief before going into labor

Fail Blog - Thu, 12/15/2022 - 11:30

One day in the not-so-distant future, we will all have been replaced by robots and AI… Then there will be a golden age of no one having to do any work at all before the robots rise up and kill us — or harvest us to use as batteries. 

Some managers, however, seem to think that we're already at that point and expect their workers never to have any medical events; never need any food, breaks, or hydration; and to show up to work on a whim and to do as they're told, whenever they're told.

The point is this: The idea that you need to wait for relief in order to have a medical event is as hilarious as it is dystopian and horrifying. Imagine getting fired for having a heart attack and leaving work "without consent." Which, according to some of the comments, isn't far from the reality of what happens in some jobs. 

Keep reading for this thread, which was originally posted to Reddit's r/antiwork subreddit by a since-deleted user. For more like this, check out this middle manager who tried to avoid filling vacant positions in order to get a bonus.

'My boss denied my 2 weeks notice': Horrible boss uses dumb loophole, refuses to let employee leave the company

Fail Blog - Thu, 12/15/2022 - 11:00

This boss is going to make those final weeks a nightmare. She refused to let her employee leave the company because of the dumbest loophole. The employee put in their two weeks notice, but it was denied because they technically gave just under ten business days due to the Holiday season. Are you kidding me?


This thread was posted to Reddit's r/antiwork subreddit by u/CaterpillarWeak893, who discovered that the initial contract did not specify whether or not two weeks meant two work weeks or two calendar weeks. With that in mind, as one person in the comments noted, this boss can't do anything. It's all empty threats. Our advice is to do the bare minimum on those final work days and if the boss makes it a hostile work environment, just walk away immediately.

Reddit's Silliest Moments Of Cats Acting As Guardians Of The Shower

LOL Cats - Thu, 12/15/2022 - 11:00

Hey cat-people! What's going on? have you guys ever noticed the phenomemon of cats acting like total guradians of the shower during the time that you're peacefully bathing yourself? well, a bunch of Reddit using cat-owners have, and they are sure as heck not alone. Cats have a habit of being… nosey. Intrusive. Curious. Whatever you want to call it, they like to know what is going on, especially when it involves their hoomans.

Cats don't have much concept of purrsonal space, they like to get all up in your business and stay there, but only when they feel like it of course. Other times you might not be able to lure your cat even with the tastiest of treats. And that's what we love about cats. They march to the beats of their own drums, they are their own complete individuals though they do indulge us humans with their love and attention and we are grateful. 


'No, absolutely not': Boss losses their cool when employees abuse 'water privilege''

Fail Blog - Thu, 12/15/2022 - 10:00

The audacity of some people to want to remain adequately hydrated. 

Don't they know? The first rule of the cashier's code is that you must remain thirsty at all times. We're talking parched here — not even an ounce of liquid or spit remaining that could accidentally flick onto a customer's face. But, after a cashier betrayed this sacred code, their boss was forced to instate a ban on all water sipping due to their abuse of "water privilege."

That's insane… right? It begs the question of why some workplaces insist on treating their workers like children. Some organizations have policies put in place as if they're running a daycare, and management attitudes reflect the same frame of mind. Things like limitations on the time or frequency of bathroom breaks and "water privileges" are sure signs that you're not going to enjoy your time there. 

This thread was posted to Reddit's r/antiwork subreddit, and the worker shared their toxic workplace experience. Reactions were exactly in line with what you might have expected, and the workers were quick to condemn the manager's attitude.

Keep reading for the screenshots. For more, check out this insane sign that was posted to limit employee bathroom breaks. 

15 Times Cats Were In A Love-Hate Relationship With Their Feline Siblings

LOL Cats - Thu, 12/15/2022 - 10:00

We don't know about you guys, but we believe that life is so much better when you have siblings by your side. It's true what they say, blood is thicker than water because, at the end of the day, it's your family that's always there to pick you up when you're down. Growing up with siblings is fun, chaotic, and horrible all at the same time. But we wouldn't have it any other way. We love the chaos, we love the drama and the entertainment. And so do cats! 

Some cat siblings fight, and some cuddle, but what we know for sure - they're always there to keep each other company when needed. It may take some time for them to warm up to one another but once they do - there's nothing that will melt your heart more than watching them cuddle and snuggle on the couch all by themselves. With that being said, we hope you enjoy the following 15 photos of feline sibling duos loving and hating on one another. Classic. 

'That was a desperate dad, willing to do a bad thing for his child': Man shares heartbreaking story of how he turned getting robbed into helping a father in need

Fail Blog - Thu, 12/15/2022 - 09:00

Being approached by a stranger in a dark parking lot is already intimidating. You were just trying to mind your own business, and now you might be in a very scary and dangerous situation. However, sometimes these situations, when shed on by a different light, turn out to be okay. For instance, Bryan Minerly recently shared a story on his social media about how he somehow changed his fate from him getting robbed, to him helping a father in need.

40 Funniest Cat Memes For People Who Have Hooligans For Cats

LOL Cats - Thu, 12/15/2022 - 09:00

As cat people, if there's anything we know for sure it's that cats are hooligans. They're mischievous little troublemakers that go out of their way to make sure they're the biggest criminal in the room. We're not exactly sure why or how this even happened, but apparently - cats are in charge and we better know it. But if you're a cat owner, then this is no new news to you. 

You can hate it and you can fight it, but at the end of the day, until you accept the fact that your cat is an absolute bum hole, you won't know any real peace. To be fair, you won't know peace after accepting it either, but you learn to adapt. With that being said, we've compiled a huge listicle of hilarious cat memes and pictures of cats being absolute delinquents. As you scroll through these, we hope you realize that you're not alone - we're all in this together.

19 Pictures Of Cats At The Vet's Office, Mostly Hiding From The Vet

LOL Cats - Thu, 12/15/2022 - 08:00

We cat people try our very best to be the most purrfect cat owners that we can be. We want our cats to live long and happy lives, and so, we keep an eye on them. Anything small that we may see that seems suspicious it's straight to the vet!  Now, a lot of times - according to the vets we talk to at least - we're worried for nothing. Sometimes, cat owners pay hundreds of dollars in vet bills just to find out their cats have gas, or they take their chonky kitten to the vet only for it to turn out that the kitten is 'just fat'

Our cats are often not the hugest fans of the vet's office, for whatever reason. So it takes some special coaxing to get them through the front door. Once they're in the office though, they're out of our hands. They might hide in the vet's sink, they might wait for him or her patiently on the patient's bed, it all depends on their mood. 

'Woke Up And Chose Lying' : Most Unbelievable Claims, Literally

Fail Blog - Thu, 12/15/2022 - 07:00

The internet does not have the most truthful reputation. Anyone can post anything and there'll always be someone who believes it. In fact, lying has become an actual day job, where you can get paid… unquestionably well. TikTok is known for people sharing 'wild' stories that happened to them, that frankly, probably didn't happen. Who's gonna do a background check? Where would you even begin to try to verify the source or level of truth? While scouring Reddit, we happened upon r/ThatHappened, where people share the most ridiculous crap that people are alleging happened. 


Eyebrows were RAISED. Firstly, how do people come up with this stuff? Secondly, from where do they have the audacity to post it? Thirdly, we'd like to pick the part of their brain says 'Yep, this is believable. People are gonna go nuts'. Well, as usual, all we can say is that it does make good content. And it's super fun to read… Scroll down to see the amusing things people claim happened.

Fluffy Feline Overload: The Fluffiest, Most Pet-Worthy Cats Of The Week

LOL Cats - Thu, 12/15/2022 - 07:00

Hey y'all! We live for cats over here at ICanHasCheezburger, but you guys probably already knew that. We love all cats, smol, chonky, and everything in between. Though, there is something special about a chonky cat with a little extra junk in the trunk. We love when our cats find a comfortable position to sit down, relax, and allow us to appreciate all of their fluffy, chunky, junk in the trunk that is conveniently shmooshed together and placed on display.

The fluffier, the better, that's what we always say anyway. Fluffy cats can also double as blankets or spatial heaters, simply place a fluffy cat atop your lap and allow the heating feature to kick in naturally. You may or may not be heated up instantaneously, depending on how cooperative your cat is feeling at that given moment. In any event, it's absolutely awwdorable to see fluffy cats relaxing lazily with all of their fluff out on display for us feline loving humans to appreciate.

LOL Cats - Thu, 12/15/2022 - 06:00

Hey there cat enthusiasts. Cats are the best, aren't they? They sure do have a way of doing absolutely nothing yet being remarkably entertaining at the same time. They could really just be loafing on the coach and we would sit and stare in awe of their cuteness. That's all it takes. A simple cat loaf. Our cats are weird little guys, and you best believe we support them. We must say that cats never fail to amuse us, cat-loving humans. Everyone always says that dogs are a man's best friend, and we agree, BUT- hear us out. Cats? Definitely up there as well. They might not be as outwardly unconditionally loving, though some very much are, we really believe that they are the very best companions a human could ask for. 

We're in the mood for some pawesome cat tweets. Anyone else? Yeah, we know you guys are with us on this one. We're here once again to go through the very best cat tweets from last week. Let's enjoy this wonderful compilation of cat Tweets featuring the sweetest, fluffiest kitties that took over the Twittersphere last week. 

'Putting people in their place is my specialty:' Tenant calls out shady landlord after failing to bump up the rent mid-lease

Fail Blog - Thu, 12/15/2022 - 05:00

It doesn't get more satisfying than shutting down your landlord. As we all know, the rental market is a blood bath right now, and this apartment manager tried to take advantage of their tenants as a result. What they didn't realize was that this one tenant was thorough and precise about what they signed in their initial agreement.


This thread was posted to Reddit's r/Apartmentliving subreddit by u/Mundane_Tension369, and let the original poster's email correspondence be evidence that you too can professionally stand up to your landlord if you know that you are in the right. In this case, the tenant hadn't signed any addendum allowing for such an increase in the middle of a lease. After threatening legal action, the apartment manager swiftly backpedaled. A rare win for the tenant in a world run by shady landlords!

Two Kittens React To Intriguing Ball Pit Surprise From Their Humans (Video)

LOL Cats - Wed, 12/14/2022 - 16:00

Hey there kitty gals and bois. There are few things more compelling to cats than when a large ball pit is placed in front of them. They simply must investigate, explore, and inquire. "We surprised our new kittens Maz and Calypso with a ball pit and 100 multi-colored ping pong balls!" Via YouTube. And boy oh boy do Maz and Calypso enjoy surprises. 

The ball pit proved to be an excellent source of entertaining for the kittens. They played and played until their little hearts could not play anymore…just kidding, that's hardly possible. These kitties are so gentle and enjoyable to watch. We could sit here from the comfort of our office chairs and watch this video on replay all day long. Unfortunately though, we've got a lot of content that needs to be written and compiled for our faithful viewers. So we'll catch you guys on the flip side this time! 


15+ People share the worst holiday gifts they ever received from an employer

Fail Blog - Wed, 12/14/2022 - 15:00

Ah, the holiday season — a time of year best spent with loved ones over amazing meals and through the sharing of thoughtful gifts. Holiday daydreams often take you to a place beside a roaring fire, wrapped in a thick woolen blanket — its surprising weight offering a welcome embracing comfort. A warm beverage of choice in hand or in arm's reach (Irish hot chocolate for me, please) completes the mood.

It should be no surprise to any of us that these holiday ideals, moods, and traditions just don't meld well with workplaces. Workplaces are generally stark, cold, hard, and uncomfortable; plus, time at work is often the very thing preventing you from spending more time with aforementioned loved ones. This, coupled with the fact that a lack of financial security can be and is the biggest constraint to many families' ability to enjoy the holidays to their fullest.

Maybe this is why the tradition of receiving holiday gifts from one's workplace came into being: Some small attempt to bridge the gap between the personal and working worlds. These can come in a wild variety of shapes and methods of delivery — and there's always something to be said for trying — but there's a reason why the idea of a bad holiday gift from an employer has become ingrained in pop culture.

Keep reading for this collection of the worst gifts people received from their employees. For more, check out this worker who found a new job after a bad Christmas bonus.
