Fail Blog - Wed, 03/20/2024 - 04:00

30 Sweet Cat Memes to Sip With Your Morning Coffee

LOL Cats - Tue, 03/19/2024 - 20:00

Hey there, hoomans!

This past weekend was a very eventful one for our two lovely cats. After months of them using their old cat tree that was actually falling apart, we finally got them a new one. This new, top-of-the-art cat tree came with so much scratching space, two little hammocks for them to sleep in, and 3 other little beds they could comfortably lounge in. We spent all Sunday afternoon assembling this bad boy, and we were so excited to introduce it to our cats.

What we obviously should have seen coming, is that our cats were much more interested in the box that the tree came in, and proceeded to scratch it, sleep in it, and play with it, completely ignoring the tree itself. We tried everything to get them to climb the tree and try it out, but eventually, we just gave up. 

This typical cat behavior is just a small example of the joy of owning cats, and this collection of cat memes can also provide a few examples, so scroll down to enjoy these hissterical memes. When you are done with those, click here for a sweet story of a senior cat finding their furrever home.

Feisty Feline Outsmarts Hooman’s Cat Proof Fence, Mischievously Managing to Escape to Neighbor’s Yard, Internet Suggest Hooman Build a Catio to Contain Cute Critter

LOL Cats - Tue, 03/19/2024 - 19:00

Cats are naughty, smart, and determined… The purrfect recipe for mischief! And this silly kitty is causing their hooman much worry indeed.

So, what happened? One hooman took to Reddit after their cat Nala continuously outsmarted the system they had in place to stop her from escaping their yard. Nala's mom had put up a cat-proof fence that obviously wasn't doing its job. Nala kept managing to escape to their neighbor's yard, which led to a road, hence the hooman's worry.

Nala's mom uploaded a bunch of hissterically cute (and frankly, funny) photos of Nala climbing on the fence. The internet had a lot to say about this funny feline, and gave Nala's mom some much-needed advice. Scroll down to read the whole story, and be sure to check out the cute pics and comments too! Next up, pawdorable puppy memes to put you in a wholesome mood.

'She spent 7 years pretending we were friends': Radio show worker refuses to prep for work during free time, manager doesn't "think it was good enough"

Fail Blog - Tue, 03/19/2024 - 14:00

When one employee stated the obvious, this radio station manager was incensed. 

Working at a radio station seems like a really fun job. The poster of this story, u/nothingbeast, confirms that, writing that the job was great, but the people were "just terrible." Their job involved a ton of different tasks since it was a small radio station, but since they enjoyed the work, this employee didn't mind going above and beyond. 

Trouble often arises when managers assume that their employees will keep up their diligent work without any reward. This employee wasn't even expecting additional compensation for all of their extracurricular work (well, at least not at first!). Their manager seemingly had it out for them, though. The employee writes that they were friends for years before things started getting contentious. Not everyone can rise through the ranks without changing their work ethic or work demeanor, as this manager unfortunately proves. 

The original poster also headed to the comments to add a bunch of additional information---including what led them to eventually walk off the job. You can read it all below, then check out what happened when the owner of a BBQ joint absolutely demanded a customer leave them an online review

Company almost signs a deal with shady business, employee overhears them speaking in another language: 'They were attempting to deceive the company'

Fail Blog - Tue, 03/19/2024 - 13:00

You never know when speaking a foreign language comes in handy. Sure, it's useful when you're traveling to another country or when you're trying to communicate with someone who doesn't speak your primary language. However, it can occasionally save you from unexpected problems.

Here, we have a Serbian employee in an English-speaking office who accompanied their boss to a meeting with a Serbian business. The employee overheard the businesspeople speaking in their language about how they were essentially trying to cheat the company with this deal. Luckily, nothing had been signed yet, and the employee understood everything that was said. They proceeded to inform their boss and plan their subsequent revenge. They shared their side of the story via this thread on Reddit's r/ProRevenge thumbnail.

'Owner's called me 12 times in the past 3 days': Server quits on the spot after being tipped $0 by customers

Fail Blog - Tue, 03/19/2024 - 12:00

A waiter lost out on hundreds of dollars, but the restaurant's owner acted like nothing was wrong. It's poor management decisions like this that lead employees to quit… and this person did quit on the spot after being treated badly. 

Some people move from serving to managing and completely forget all the actual problems that waitstaff encounter. It seems like once the apron is off and the newly-appointed manager works on spreadsheets or takes naps in the back office, they stop caring about their waiters even a little bit. This restaurant could've stopped this person from quitting. After being stiffed on hundreds of dollars worth of tip money, the owner tried to cheer up u/Pilkie_. He said that he knew what it was like being stiffed on a check as a server. Sure, but it's not like this person was shorted $20. They should've received over $700 for the amount of work they did during that shift. Not to mention that the server had no say in the matter: they were forced to give up five other tables (who would've tipped!) in order to serve one giant group.

Read this wild story below. Then, have a laugh at these hilarious overheard conversations, like one person who heard a guy tell his date, "Brittany, you're beautiful-ish."

Karen accosts dude at campsite, tries to steal his heater, slashes his bike tires as payback

Fail Blog - Tue, 03/19/2024 - 11:00

Apparently, the biggest threat when you're going camping is that you might spot a Karen or two lurking around. 

This Karen decided it was well within her right to shame another camper for having a nice portable heater to keep him warm on a relatively cold evening. Not only did she overhear him discussing the heater, but she also followed him all the way back to his camper and tried to barge inside and take the heater from him. Eventually, the guy's family saw the commotion and gathered to defend him. She saw that she was outnumbered and took off.

Of course, they thought that would be the last of Karen but she did subtly come back with a vengeance. The guy shared the fallout via the following thread on Reddit's r/EntitledPeople subreddit. Keep scrolling below for the full story and for the best reactions from folks in the comments section. For more stories like this, here is another post about an HOA Karen overstepping boundaries.

‘Tomorrow they will wake up with none of their files’: Employee deletes thousands of hours of work from old job after being fired for requesting a raise

Fail Blog - Tue, 03/19/2024 - 10:00

One former employee was bitter towards their old job, and rightfully so.

You know when you're putting in a lot of overtime, basically pouring your heart and soul into a job, only to be rewarded with minimum wage? Who am I kidding, of course you do. Everyone has worked at a toxic company at one point or another in their lives. And unfortunately, not many of us get the chance to get back at them after we move on to better things.

This employee, on the other hand, got their chance. When they had worked as a videographer at their old job, they were creating up to 50 videos a day… And still being paid a little more than minimum wage. After realizing that their work was making the company money, they asked for a raise. Not only were they denied, but they were fired for even asking. A few years later, this employee had a golden opportunity for payback and went for it. Scroll down to read what happened, and then check out these entertaining micromanagement stories told by employees who are over it.

A Satisfying Selection Of Cute Cats Curled Up Into Purrfect Circles For An Acute Boost Of Pawsitivity

LOL Cats - Tue, 03/19/2024 - 10:00

We all know that cats are weird, that's a constant in our lives. You turn your back for one second, and they're doing one sort of silly shenanigan or another. Between them getting their heads stuck in random things, climbing on top of our shower curtains, or turning into liquid, these cats really do love to test the limits of our patience. However, they're also sweet and adorable sometimes, especially when they curl up into purrfectly satisfying circles!

You know those soap-cutting videos on social media? Where they cut the soap into tiny pieces and then slide it off all at once? Okay, well this is the cat version of that. We've never seen another creature be able to make such purrfect circles, and it's incredibly cute and satisfying! They can do it because cats do, in fact, have noodle bones. How else would you be comfortable sleeping like that?

‘She laughed as she wrote me up': Manager sends employee home for dress code violation, they use the day off to look for a different job

Fail Blog - Tue, 03/19/2024 - 09:00

If a place of work requires a dress code, they should provide with the clothes, simple as that. An employee should no go out of their way to find something to wear for a shift, and they definitely should not be reprimanded for not having the right clothes on the odd occasion. The need for uniform is truly understandable, but surely a customer would care more about getting a good service from an employee, than about the color of their shoes.

In this Reddit story, an employee had to deal with their manager's unreasonable demands about the dress code. Instead of all-black shoes, OP (original poster) showed up to work with black shoes that had a white sole (I know, how dare they). OP's manager was extremely unsatisfied with those shoes and asked OP to go back home and change them. Since OP lives 30 minutes away from work, they felt like going back would waste a lot of time, but the manager wouldn't hear of it. The dispute continued for a little more until the manager eventually told OP to just go home for the entire day.

'We started calling the dealership': Driver files lawsuit against car dealership that sold them a lemon

Fail Blog - Tue, 03/19/2024 - 08:00

After accidentally buying a lemon, this person had to practically go to battle with their car dealership. 

No one ever said it was easy to buy a new or used car. There's tons of information to research about each model, and when you arrive at a dealership, you'll then have to deal with the salespeople. They want to put you in the priciest car with all of the fancy add-ons. But some shady sales associates go even further than that, as u/functi0nalPsych0path found out just after buying their vehicle. 

At some of the less ethical car dealerships, especially those reselling used cars, customers are in for a terrible surprise. This person barely made it on the road before having car trouble. Their car wouldn't start, because anything that wasn't essential had been stripped from their car. This poor person then had to do the run around with the dealership, AAA, and finally a lawyer, just to get some justice after being sold a complete lemon. 

Check out this person's excellent tale of malicious compliance, complete with a satisfying end to the story. Then, read about the dude who "could not miss this [football] game," so he left his GF at the top of a mountain while he watched the game in his car.
