'Why are companies doing this?': Job-seeker shows weird questions they were asked in online questionaire

Fail Blog - Mon, 02/26/2024 - 12:00

Why in the world was this job seeker asked such odd questions? They aren't sure either, and they took to Reddit to see if other people are also doing personality quizzes while applying for jobs. 

No one ever said it was easy to apply for jobs. Even using that "easy apply" option that submits your resume with one click doesn't help---a lot of companies follow up with their own questions. Or, like this job-seeker found out, they want you to take a lengthy personality test so they can figure out if you're fit for the job. 

It's not enough to submit a resume and a cover letter, apparently. One sports drink company is asking candidates to basically take one of those online quizzes that everyone was hooked on in the late 2000s and early 2010s. You know the ones: you'd take a quiz to find out what character you were from a popular TV show, or you'd get to find out what vegetable you'd be. I know it sounds absurd now, but believe me, everyone and their mother was obsessed with these cute quizzes. It was fun! It's a lot less fun to do them for as part of an IRL job assessment. 

The questions are also kind of baffling, and seem like there would be tons of room for individual interpretation or user error. One question asks what the person would do if someone ate their lunch. They can feel like a dove, like someone giving or taking a gift, like a crying baby, or like a lion pouncing on a zebra. I would've selected the baby photo probably, assuming that they're asking about how you'd feel about your lunch being stolen (you'd feel sad, right? Not peaceful or giving or extremely angry). But in the comments, people debated if picking the dove or the gift would be the right option. Maybe you should feel like a peaceful dove if someone takes your lunch. But maybe that's the option for liars. 

Check out these questions for yourself! Then, check out this airplane drama that spilled out onto social media

Kitten And Duck Who Grew Up Together Meet Up Once More All Grown Up, The Two Instantly Remember And Accept One Another (Video)

LOL Cats - Mon, 02/26/2024 - 12:00

It doesn't matter how many times we tell everyone, it seems that there are still people out there who actually believe that cats are these cold, unfriendly creatures who don't love anyone but themselves, even though that's about the furthest thing away from the actual truth. Cats super friends, they're just picky about who they're friendly with. And we totally support that. We're picky about who we're friends with as well. But when we choose someone, we invest in them. And the exact same thing is true about cats.

We have seen cats be friends with horses, despite their differences. We have seen cats be friends with pigs, even though… well, you know why. We have even seen cats walk a bunch of chicks as if they're the chicks' mothers. And today, we have a cat and a duck who grew up together meeting again after a while, and the cat, after resisting for about half a second, recognizes its friend and immediately accepts it. And if that's not true friendship, then we don't know what is.

Young couple gets payback on entitled neighbor after he repeatedly trespasses property: 'I’ve honestly never seen somebody shut up so quickly'

Fail Blog - Mon, 02/26/2024 - 11:00

When young couples move into a neighborhood, it's no surprise that some of the lifers in the neighborhood will roll their eyes at the "new blood." That being said, this entitled neighbor, whom the Redditor refers to as Tim, really thought he could get away with ongoing manipulation, endless plotting and scheming, and frequent trespassing of property without any repercussions. Young folks may be new to the neighborhood, but that in no way means that they are willing to be used and played around with. After this ordeal, it seems like Tim learned this the hard way.

The problem began with a drainage issue, and Tim requested to take a look at his neighbors' backyard to fix the issue. It turns out he never needed to do that, but he really was looking to flex his muscles and find someone else to blame (and potentially pay) for this issue. Keep scrolling below to see what happened when the young people confronted him after numerous trespassing incidents and threatened him with legal action. To all entitled neighbors out there who think they can take advantage of the newbies in the neighborhood, let this story serve as a cautionary tale.

For more stories like this, take a look at this post about another neighbor's revenge against his HOA.

'Okay, have it your way': Smug DIYer losing $3,000 dollars worth of decking after ignoring the sage advice of a professional

Fail Blog - Mon, 02/26/2024 - 09:00

These days, every DIY enthusiast sees 'amateurs' online who are achieving their home improvement goals without any experience. Armed with a flathead screwdriver, hand-me-down power tools, and a whole lot of gumption, a lot of DIYers feel builder's confidence flowing through them before ever setting foot into a hardware store. But regardless of their smug arrogance, at the end of the day, DIY builders lack the experience and the know-how to properly get things done. 

Take for instance the guy in our next story–drunk on the prospects of building his deck (and saving on the cost of hiring professionals), this particular busybody got the lesson of a lifetime after ignoring the wisdom of a seasoned pro. Scroll onward to read how one man lost thousands of dollars of building materials after failing to acknowledge the tried-and-true sage advice from the one man at the loading dock who offered to help him. 

After this, here's another story of a pair of newbies in the neighborhood who wanted to improve their house–only to get ousted by their impetuous HOA.

LOL Cats - Mon, 02/26/2024 - 09:00

Greetings, fellow feline aficionados! If you have a smol feline baby at home, then you probably know that living with cats tends to result in occasional chaos. "Occasional" chaos? More like a daily dose of delightful disorder!

The chaos never ends, enjoy!

'So much drama on the plane right now': Couple shares text messages about their plan to annoy dude on their flight

Fail Blog - Mon, 02/26/2024 - 08:00

This couple posted all over social media about their recent flight, and they're getting plenty of backlash over it. 

There's never been a crazier time to fly than the 2020s. Airline incidents have risen significantly, and since everyone has their phones in their hands 24/7, there are endless recordings of these incidents. Some people get on planes and get too tipsy, then start drama with other passengers or the flight attendants. Other passengers start yelling at each other over seating issues or personal issues. People aren't being very empathic while traveling, and instead, they're only caring about themselves as they fly from one destination to the next. 

This couple had their own story to share, and they gleefully posted about it to their socials. However, they were called "entitled" and "petty" by commenters who just couldn't understand their behavior. Even if they did act so over-the-top towards another passenger, it's odd that they then wanted to share that with the world. The couple are somewhat well-known---one woman starred in a season of "The Bachelorette," and her girlfriend is a writer and comedian. I wonder if their followers found the posts relatable… because the commenters of the r/ImtheMainCharacter subreddit certainly didn't.

'Why did you choose to wear those shoes today?': 10+ Workers share the hardest interview questions they've ever had to answer

Fail Blog - Mon, 02/26/2024 - 07:00

Interviews are never easy, the pressure of bidding for your own dreams and livelihood can cause you to slip up and miss the chance at your dream job—failing a pivotal moment of your career. They can even cause you to become so nervous that you miss a shot at a job that you're well and truly qualified—or even overqualified—for.

Of course, this is the case even when interviews follow a predictable course, asking all the common questions that test for aptitude, probe for personality flaws, and seek to trip candidates up and expose their red flags. Some interviewers follow a more unorthodox approach, using their own methods (or one they derived from a self-help book about management 20 years ago) in order to sniff out candidates they think that they want to work with.

These workers shared the most challenging interview questions they were ever asked, some aced their tests with flying colors while others fell flat on their faces.

If I Fits, I Sits: An ICanHas Original Series Of Cats Made Of Noodles, Liquid And Slime Fitting Anywhere They Want Anytime

LOL Cats - Mon, 02/26/2024 - 07:00

In case you did not know yet, we are here to inform you that cats are not made of flesh and bone as you had previously thought. No, we cat owners know better. We know that, in fact, cats' bones are actually noodles, and cats' flesh is liquid. How do we know? The same way that you do. It is quite simple. There is no other explanation for the phenomenon that is: "if I fits, I sits."

It's one of the things that cats are the most known for. No matter the shape of the item, no matter the size of the item, no matter the size of the cat, if a kitty decides that it wants to sit somewhere, it will bend all the rules of physics and the universe to fit in there, and all that will be left for us to do is to watch in awe… and take many, many pictures.

'You're gonna pay, one way or another': Technician uses company commute rules to get 50% pay bump after being promoted without a raise

Fail Blog - Mon, 02/26/2024 - 06:00

Getting promoted without a raise… Tsk, tsk. It's almost like managers want you to work twice as hard without being properly compensated… Oh wait, that's actually what they want. So silly of me.

This technician was working on large machines, and the site he worked on was across a border, so he had quite a commute every day. Unfortunately he didn't get any mileage because it was the site he was assigned. Alright, fair enough (Is it though?). After some time, the technician got promoted to work on more complex projects, which sounded good, until he was informed he would not be getting a raise because it wasn't 'in their budget'.

We've all heard those words before… 'Not in our budget'. Sure it isn't, Karen. In any case, the technician decided to maliciously comply with management… and found a way to receive a 50% pay bump nonetheless. This just goes to show that upper management doesn't always win. Scroll down to read what happened, and then check out these wholesome posts for employees who are in serious need of a vacation.

A Wholesome Series Of Post-Surgery Cats Who Said 'No' To The Cone Of Shame And Got Cute Little Onesies Instead

LOL Cats - Mon, 02/26/2024 - 06:00

Going to the vet is always hard for a cat. Going through surgery is even worse for them. But you know which part we think that our cats actually hate the most about the whole process? The cone of shame. Almost every cat that goes through surgery has to get that donned on them, as if they need some embarrassment on top of all the other difficulties.

But not every cat agrees to the cone of shame, and some vets, because they're ameowzing, accommodate those cats. No, no, they don't allow the cats to simply go home without a protective layer. They simply forego the cone of shame. Instead, some cats get the doughnut of doom, and other cats get the toast of terror or the sweater of sweetness, and some cats, like the ones today, get the onesie of funzie and live their very best post-surgery lives.

20 times people discovered their partners were not bright: 'She thought the Statue of Liberty was made of plastic'

Fail Blog - Mon, 02/26/2024 - 05:00

There comes a time in everyone's dating experiences when you realize that the person with whom you have been spending time is a complete and total doofus. When this happens, you have three options. 

First, you can give them the benefit of the doubt. You let whatever silly comment they made slide, you try to explain why they are mistaken, and you move on. Sometimes, people simply do not know things because they have yet to be exposed to them. You taught your partner something. Isn't that a productive step forward in the relationship?

The second option is that you get ahead of this and you call it quits right then and there. With this option, you are saving yourself from further embarrassment or further infuriating circumstances in which you have to explain the ways of the world to your significant other again and again. But what if you're acting too rash and it really was just an innocent mistake? You have to be careful not to self-destruct based on a minor mixup.

The third option is the "ignorance is bliss" choice. Perhaps this person is so good-looking that they are worth ignoring these very serious flaws. Nine times out of ten, this is a horrible choice that will only lead to more conflict, but we felt that it was only fair to present all the options to you.

Keep scrolling below to see what these Redditors did when they realized their partners had hollow brains. For more content like this, check out this compilation of out-of-touch comments.

'I gave your job to someone else': Employee returns from sick leave and discovers manager promoted coworker instead of her

Fail Blog - Mon, 02/26/2024 - 04:00

If being an employee is a challenge, being a manager to several employees is no picnic either. Having to answer to all of their requests, being the person they turn to whenever they have any problem, and yes, even being the person they blame when things go wrong, are all difficult tasks that can really drive a person up the wall. Though the title can be tempting, you have to remember that with great power, comes great responsibility.

This person who wrote this Reddit piece is just starting to realize the responsibility of being a manager. She was offered a promotion and had the opportunity to give her own job to one of her employees. After she offered it to one - Belle, it was quickly becoming clear that Belle was not up to the task, as she went on illness leave for almost two months. The manager decided to offer the job to another employee instead, but that didn't bode well with Belle, who was mad when she learned her position was offered to someone else.

27 Extremeowly Close Up Kitty Pics to Pop Your Purrsonal Bubble

LOL Cats - Sun, 02/25/2024 - 22:00

Cats like to get all up in our grills sometimes. Considering that the alternative for a cat is hiding under the bed, most cat lovers will gladly take any form of overt affection. When your cat is climbing on your keyboard, laying on your neck, or putting its entire body weight on one paw as they crush your vital organs, consider this: Your cat loves you so much that they want to get extremeowly close and purrsonal with you. That's an honor. 

With their whiskers tickling behind your ear or their fluffy tails tripping you up as you traverse the stairs, cats without any purrsonal boundaries are a rare breed of overly affectionate, lovable weirdos who can't get enough of their hoomans. They've honored your presence with their own auras and effectively provide the purrfect excuse to stop working for the day. So close your laptop (as your feline demands), and get back to the real work at hand–loving your kitty with all your heart and soul.

32 Couch Potato Felines Far Chiller Than a Lazy Sunday

LOL Cats - Sun, 02/25/2024 - 21:00

It's the weekend again, which means we'll be procrastinating the chores that need to be done to chill a little longer with our cats on the couch. They say that felines are one of the sleepiest animals out there and judging by the 23-hour naps that my kitty takes, I have to agree. If only hoomans could be as lazy and regal as the cat, judging the rushing world around us with heavy sighs, tiny meows, and disapproving stretches. By extending their legs and opening their toe beans, cats let every hooman know that we've got to slow down the pace a little. 

So if you're dashing around and trying to do it all this weekend, take a beat! Slow down for a second and take notes from the laziest cat on your couch–chill out. Put on your coziest sweater and your fuzziest socks and curl up into a cozy croissant, purring happily with your cat by your side. Lazy Sunday mode has been activated.
