'[She says] it's my fault': Boss blames worker when shady business practices earn her an investigation from the IRS

Fail Blog - Wed, 12/06/2023 - 06:00

An important lesson you learn early on in this world is to own your own mistakes, and whether or not someone makes mistakes is a good indicator of that person's character. As is often the case, there are plenty of people who never managed to learn this simple concept, with these people finding themselves in positions of authority all too often. It's not surprising then that there are a lot of toxic bosses out there who consistently find someone else to blame and someone else to shame for their own misdeeds, successfully scapegoating workers who don't have the evidence or authority to defend themselves but sometimes going as far as to grapple with the bounds of reality when no one else is buying their claims.

When it comes to the ethics and management of business finances, if it's your business, you'll find yourself responsible—no matter who is managing them. But, if you're managing your own finances and still trying to blame a random worker in your employ when the enforcement agencies and tax collectors come for you, you are outrageous and grasping at straws. You also probably shouldn't be running a business.

Mid-Week Madness: A Flurry of Feline Memes For Every Cat Person Who Can't Believe It's Only Wednesday (December 6, 2023)

LOL Cats - Wed, 12/06/2023 - 06:00

Oh, Wednesday. One of the most difficult days of the week. We're already working hard, the week is already long, and then, we look forward, and there are still so many days left. Really, there is only one good thing about Wednesday, and that is that it is also known as the "halfway to Caturday" day. And we, as the cat people that we are, use just about any excuse in existence, including being halfway to Caturday to take a break from work and enjoy some heckin' good cat memes.

Every single week, right when we're at this halfway to Caturday point, we bring you all a brand new concoction of cat memes to enjoy first thing in the morning. Because yes, the week is difficult, and there is still a long way to go until the purrfection that is Caturday, but if there is one thing that can make us at least a little happier in the morning, it's cat memes.

'The audacity to complain about a $500 gift': Choosing beggar throws tantrum at coworker over a $500 holiday gift card

Fail Blog - Wed, 12/06/2023 - 05:00

As much as it is the season of giving, apparently, it is also the season of complaining. Now, I have never been one of those lucky employees to receive a sizable bonus for the Holidays. One has to assume it is the price for not going full corporate. That being said, if I were to receive such a gift, I would try not to take it for granted and remember the days when I would never have gotten this kind of special treatment (meaning, these days). So if this choosing beggar has no interest in using his free $500 gift card from Target, I am happy to reach out and take that sweet burden off his shoulders. As someone who never receives gifts of that size, it is the least I can do.

This thread was posted to Reddit's r/ChoosingBeggars subreddit by u/hubbity-bubbity, another employee at the company who unfortunately had to be on the receiving end of his coworker's tantrum. Of course, the tantrum was useless considering the fact that OP had no part in the decision-making here, but that is how corporate culture works. Someone on top makes a controversial decision, and someone below has to clean up the mess. Keep scrolling below for the full exchange and for the best reactions in the comments section.

'My screen was idle for 28 minutes': New manager accuses highest performer of being unproductive because of failed "screen audit"

Fail Blog - Wed, 12/06/2023 - 04:00

There's nothing like hustling to go above and beyond in your role only to have your new boss turn around and throw some random metric that is vaguely associated with productivity back in your face for no reason. Your KPIs and contributions that are tied to actual revenue for the company are topping the charts, and yet your insecure micromanaging manager is concerned about the fact that your screen was "idle" for a few minutes. This is the problem with modern "productivity" tracking software that tracks employee activity: twiddling your mouse around more often than your coworkers has no bearing on your actual contribution to the company. This, for some reason, is something that a lot of corporate managers have trouble logically reasoning—probably cause they're not doing any actual work anyway—so, to them, moving their mouse on the screen is productive.

As commenters in this voracious discussion have already mentioned, without a doubt, this new manager is trying to make an example of their top performer in order to set a precedence of authority with their team. See the author's original post and the discussion that followed below.

Meowgical Cat Moments in the Form of 31 Mood-Boosting Memes and Feline Funnies (December 5, 2023)

LOL Cats - Tue, 12/05/2023 - 19:00

Having a cat is a meowgical experience. You get to live amongst a tiny, floofy predator in their natural habitat (the hooman kitchen), and you get to observe their innately feline behaviors up close. Enchanting as ever at first, cats tend to take on a goofy quality as you get to know them a little better. As every cat person can attest, a cat's purrsonality is really what sets them apart from other pets. 

If you wanted a predictably loyal, charming, and malleable animal in your house, you might consider getting a dog. But if you want a random, chaotic, and semi-maniacal genius animal living amongst you in your home, a housecat may be the right choice. Unpredictable as ever, kittens keep us on our toes and mystify us hoomans with their fleeting wants and needs. One minute your cat is begging for tummy rubs and the next moment they're attacking your hand with the full force of their toe-bean knives. But that's why we love them! Cats are always an excitingly wonderful mess, which is why they captivate the hooman soul. 

Scroll for a delectable collection of mood boosting cat memes that'll remind you of the hoomanity trapped inside your tiny floofy biting machine.

'Us servers scramble': 30+ Restaurant employees share the chaos that ensues when an inspector shows up unannounced

Fail Blog - Tue, 12/05/2023 - 16:00

Whether you're working in a spotless kitchen or not, hearing that the health inspector has showed up unannounced sends some sort of chills down any service industry worker's back. Maybe it's PTSD from getting pop quizzes in high school, because that's exactly what it feels like. Even if you are sure you are an expert on the topic, something about being put on the spot and quizzed about it at random makes you doubt yourself. So you can image the sort of chaos that ensues with an inspector shows up out of the blue to a restaurant. Managers start to sweat, servers try to stand a little straighter, kitchen staff does the ungraceful dance of making sure everything is how it is supposed to be. Even a slip up of forgetting to date the juice of when it was made can ding you for a lower rating. So below service industry employees share the chaos cause and effect of when an inspector drops in out of nowhere. Buckle up!

'I got my former supervisor fired': Employee given no reason for immediate termination uncovers a conspiracy with his ex-upper management while filing for his final paycheck

Fail Blog - Tue, 12/05/2023 - 15:00

Do you have a friend who doesn't believe in Karma? Well, show them this sweet by epic Reddit story. This guy was working at a place where he never received any sort of work evaluation or detailed instructions, so he thought was was doing pretty well. And he most likely was. However, one day he got called in and was terminated started immediately. He kept asking why and his manager refused to give any reason. Confused, he packed up his stuff and left. As you do when you get fired, you collect your last paycheck, which should also include all your paid vacation days. This guy not only never received his last paycheck, they gave him documentation that showed he wasn't getting his PTO paid for either. That's some BS. So what did he do? He reported then to the labor board. Turns out this wasn't just a clerical error, this was an entirely different much more sinister situation he just uncovered… 

'He thinks his Groot impression will impress her': 20+ Moments of cringe that still haunt people years later

Fail Blog - Tue, 12/05/2023 - 14:00

Kids and teens can't help but have a few embarrassing moments. Okay, maybe more than a few. 

As a kid, you're able to let loose and say and do pretty much whatever you want. Children usually know not to say bad words or talk back to adults. But there are a lot of nuances they don't understand, and a world of knowledge that they haven't had time to learn from. That's probably why it's so much fun to be around little kids while they're letting off steam, bouncing off the walls and babbling about whatever enters their minds. They're so free and so crazy, as they should be. 

Maybe you have a direct moment in time where your little child brain finally realized, "Oh, I'm actually a little too old of a kid to be doing this or saying that." Perhaps you realize when an aunt or a teacher gives you a weird look, or maybe a group of friends start laughing their heads off at something you said that wasn't supposed to be funny. These moments of self-reflection often feel like mega-cringe moments in our minds, even though the people around you probably have zero memory of it.

'[Cop] wrote all those drivers tickets': Top 10+ Tales of Instant Karma

Fail Blog - Tue, 12/05/2023 - 13:00

You can never exactly predict when and how karma is going to strike. Sometimes, the people who deserve it the most get off easy (for now). But when karma does come into play, the results can be glorious. I'll never forget the time I had a friend who was so insistent that their wedding would happen the way they wanted it to that despite the forecast of good weather, it started to downpour during their outdoor wedding ceremony. It was the kind of climactic situation no one could have predicted (and therefore, no one could be blamed), and yet the only explanation was that this person put a certain kind of negative energy into the universe that led to some perfectly timed karma. 

This collection of instant karma tales ranges from traffic drama to classroom antics. Keep scrolling below for the full list. When you're done, here is a story of a Karen's neighborhood fence fiasco.

'Have fun running the place without me': Coffee shop owner tells manager working 100 hours per week to take time off, manager blocks all work numbers and lets the business fall apart while they're gone

Fail Blog - Tue, 12/05/2023 - 12:00

The relief of taking two whole weeks off, after working 100 hour weeks, must be incredible. Humans aren't designed to work that much. Yet there are numerous career fields that require 16-hour days and working straight through the weekends. Doctors, nurses, and lawyers are among the groups of employees who tirelessly devote themselves to their jobs. But running on caffeine and energy bars isn't enough to keep a person going in the long run. 

This person shared their own story of when they worked 90-100 hours per week, but it was actually at a coffee shop. The place was a chain, and was apparently so poorly run that the previous manager walked out on the job! That wasn't a big enough red flag for the OP, and they were stuck covering every single shift where an employee called out, while also having to cut people's shifts to save on labor costs.

LOL Cats - Tue, 12/05/2023 - 12:00

For many the holiday season is a time of wonder and innocence, a time that congers up warm wholesome memories from their youth. A time that they look forward to every year, living in heightened anticipation of the first time Mariah Carey's festive hit will play in the shopping mall once more. And then on the other hand there are those of us who would rather eat the mouse their cat brought them last night, than live through another second of this holiday hell.

And today's collection of grumpy cat memes has been specifically designed for all the secret Scrooges out there, stifling their disdain for the upcoming festive period. From felines who are battling the urge to not scream their facetious heads off, to the cats getting rowdy in their local walmart, to the introverted fluffers who just want to be left alone, today's feline funnies are utterly relatable for all the secret Scrooges out there who just need a break.

'[Neighbors] insisted on us getting a fine': Neighbor gets petty after Karens make him pay a $50 fine because his chicken ended up on their property

Fail Blog - Tue, 12/05/2023 - 11:00

Shouldn't animal control have been able to shut down this Karen duo? The fact that they were able to intimidate animal control into enforcing a fine that would have otherwise just been a warning says a lot more about the fragile authority of animal control than anything else.

Now, personally speaking, I could not live right next to someone who keeps a dozen chickens and who always is having problems with those chickens because of raccoons and other animal attacks. That is not exactly my neighborhood vibe. That being said, if this is the norm of the neighborhood and all of this is approved, then it's not exactly something a Karen neighbor can complain about. And if you're the type of person who is just waiting to get your neighbor in trouble, you're practically asking for them to do the same thing to you in return. If these Karens really have a problem with this guy and if he's doing nothing wrong, they are just going to have to move.

‘My boss kept cutting my hours’: Employee trains new hire who ends up taking their job, so employee quits, leading to boss taking every last one of their shifts away

Fail Blog - Tue, 12/05/2023 - 10:00

Quitting is like a game of peekaboo. Now you see me, now you don't… and once you see me less, or rather, when I hand in my two-week notice, it's all fair game. Unless your employer is decent, which, if you work at a food franchise in customer service, is rare, you are bound to hit a few obstacles. So, in this case, OP's boss hired a new worker, whom OP was told to train. That was all dandy until OP's boss began giving the new hire all of OP's hours.

Then, afterwards, OP got super annoyed, because they realized that they had fewer shifts, which meant that their salary was considerably smaller. What is an employee to do when their boss is playing an unfair game? Quit, of course. That prompted their boss to take ALL their hours away, meaning that in the two week period OP was supposed to be working, they were not working at all. Second question: What is an employee to do when their boss is no longer playing, but won the unfair game? Well, for that answer, you will have to scroll down and read the screenshots, but let's just say that OP was not letting it end there.

Coming up next is a computer science student who got back at his teammates who left all the work of the group project for him to do, and then took credit for everything.
