'Are you still open?': Couple orders food from exasperated workers at a closed restaurant, wonders if they're wrong

Fail Blog - Sat, 08/19/2023 - 09:00

How many people working in customer service, retail, or the service industry have had to deal with this exact same scenario? The closing time was 6 pm—it's now ten after—and there are still customers in the store. You're not allowed to turn customers away—management has forbidden it—still, customers continue to pour in. 

This same thing happens often, and management insists that every last customer be able to order, forcing you to stay late well past scheduled closing… Yet, every time you try to claim the overtime, they give you grief—forcing justification of the extra time despite it resulting from their own policy.

You're trying to get out of there as fast as possible; you've got an assignment due in the morning that still needs some final touches. The last time this happened, you ended up being too tired to finish it and had to accept partial credit. Your coworkers are eager to get home to feed their kids or pets or to uphold plans they'd made for after their shift. 

No one wants to be there after close—at least, no one who is working. The customers are more than happy to take their time, plodding around and taking as long as possible amidst lengthy conversations. But the staff… All they want is to get home and get on with their evening as they'd planned. 

And—still… customers continue to walk through the door.

'Under special talents was, "Owns own gorilla suit"': 35+ Hiring managers who couldn't stop laughing at interviewee's resumes

Fail Blog - Sat, 08/19/2023 - 08:00

These resumes and cover letters were supposed to land them a job, but these interviewees are getting laughed at behind closed doors. 

Hiring someone for a job position might seem easy at first — you post a job listing on a few sites, and the resumes should come pouring in. Depending on your industry, you might get 10 resumes, or 1000. But either way, not everyone will have the right qualifications. Some applicants actually do have the skills, but they have no clue how to format a resume and cover letter, leaving the hiring manager to figure out what you're trying to write. 

Some people wanted to add little details to make themselves stand out, like one guy who encouraged his wife to add her favorite TV shows to the resume. That's cute, and it might get her an interview with the right person, while other HR managers might frown upon the unprofessionalism of such a CV. Maybe that husband is onto something, though. Her resume will definitely stick in the head of whoever reads it! Maybe it will be a conversation starter that could let her show off her people skills and lead to a better connection. 

Up next, this manager was so fed up with these customers that he brought out a dictionary and literally read them a definition

'They were looking forward to getting money': Newlyweds, in debt €2,000 to the family business, are absolved of their debt in lieu of a wedding gift; get offended it's not cash

Fail Blog - Sat, 08/19/2023 - 07:00

Family members can be least grateful band of blood relatives out there. For some, they feel as if their genetic relations entitle them to special treatment, which sometimes it does, but when cousins, uncles, siblings, and grannies start taking advantage of their family members's niceties,  blood-relations quickly turn bitter. In this case, a family run business was being extraordinarily generous to their kin, by allowing them to make late payment on their mechanic bills, loaning out their cars, and having indefinite deadlines on exorbitant bills. However, one of the uncles took his family privilege a little too far when he refused to pay an outstanding €2,000 bill. 

To get their money's worth on the late payment, while also not burning bridges in the family tree, OP's family came up with the perfect solution to absolve the debt, while also gifting an extremely valuable wedding gift. The uncle of course, was incredibly disappointed when he opened his wedding card…

Scroll for the full pettiness of this family story where one man reaps what he sows, while hopefully learning a valuable lesson in responsibility. Next, read about this petty couple that broke up at a restaurant, throwing away a 6 year relationship over a dispute started by a napkin.

'You're fired!': Karen insists customer be fired from a store where he doesn't even work

Fail Blog - Sat, 08/19/2023 - 06:00

Being mistaken for a worker by a fellow customer is an embarrassing experience for all involved—they're embarrassed that they made a mistake, and you're embarrassed for having to rebuff a complete stranger when you were simply minding your own business with some mid-shopping dissociation. Usually, at this point, you'd both abashedly go your own way and pretend that each other doesn't exist like good strangers do when you eventually cross paths again in the store.

This goes sideways when the mistaken party refuses to accept that the person they thought was a worker isn't, sending the simple mistake down the fast track to a full-blown confrontation.

The original poster explains that they used to work at a Kroger division store and often shop at a farm store in their work uniform. One day, a wild Karen approached them, first demanding their help and then later returning to demand that they unlock a changing room. The user refused, prompting the Karen's ire and leading to a confrontation with her involving the store's manager, with the Karen insisting that the worker be fired. After some back in forth, the only way out of the situation was for the OP to be fired sarcastically. The Karen threw a fit and left—while others in the store laughed. OP and the manager jokingly planned, in front of the Karen, for the OP to return to the store the next day.

See their story as it was originally shared with the popular r/idontworkherelady subreddit.

'My colleagues are all 8am until 5:30pm. My contract is for 9 to 5pm': HR makes a mistake with new employee's contract, employee refuses to let them change it

Fail Blog - Sat, 08/19/2023 - 05:00

If HR makes a mistake like this, that's on them, not the employee! Employees are expected to be diligent in their paperwork, so shouldn't we expect the same from our managers and HR staff when they're drafting our employment contracts? There are so many instances as employees where we are expected to own our mistakes and stick with them. Let this story serve as a friendly reminder to all the horrible bosses out there because folks, it's a two-way street!



This thread was posted to Reddit by u/Excellent-Ostrich908, who shared that after joining a new company as an IT worker, he realized that his hours were ever so slightly different than those of his colleagues. It turns out that the HR lady who drafted his contract had only been working at the company for a week and no one double-checked her work. She explicitly wrote down that his hours were 9am-5pm rather than 8am-5:30pm.



When the employee's boss started to raise this as a problem, the employee was quick to show him a copy of his contract. The reality is that there's nothing they can do about it, and thankfully this worker lives outside of the US, so according to folks in the comments section, he is way more protected. 


Keep scrolling below for the full story and for the best reactions. When you're finished, feel free to take a look at this similar story about an employee's malicious compliance regarding bringing donuts to the office.

‘You said the check was mine': Company backtracks after sending woman a check for $1,200, woman refuses to send money back at their request

Fail Blog - Sat, 08/19/2023 - 04:00

The saying, 'The customer is always right' has long lost its appeal, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't ever hold any truth to it.

Employees can miscalculate, leading to big fines, expensive problems, and can generally cost companies big amounts of cash. The wheel of fortune isn't always on our side, but being human, we know it can't be. What goes up must come down, and vice versa. In any case, a company miscalculated big time, leading to the grand mistake of accidentally sending a check for $1,200 to OP, who as a good samaritan, informed them of their blunder. They had the chance to fix the issue, but instead, opted to be rude and condescending.

You'd think when someone is trying to return over one thousand dollars, they'd be taken seriously, but unfortunately for the company, the woman working that day in customer service was actually annoyed at OP for calling. An important morsel of information here is that this call was recorded, meaning that technically, OP had a pretty good 'out' if the company would ever contact her and ask for the money back.

Well, that detail came to be quite important after all. Below you can find out exactly why. Next, the top Reddit stories where people were promptly 'fired on the spot'. I can definitely relate to a few…

31 Fluffy Feline Memes for Goofy Cat Souls Who Pspspsps Their Way to the Weekend

LOL Cats - Fri, 08/18/2023 - 19:00

Goooood morning, and what a morning it is, indeed! We are pspspsps-ing our way into the weekend, and we hereby call every single cat lover to join us in our hissterical hurrays. This week took forever to go by; much longer than we originally anticipated. Our dream now is to sit down on our couch in a well-ventilated room (because well, summer), with our fluffy cats on our lap, and a fan purr-ferably directed straight at us. Then, we will fiddle around with the TV remote control that semi-works and may need new batteries, and put on our favorite show on Netflix.

After some binge-watching which will probably be interrupted now and then by our cat, who will meow at us for attention, we will either fall asleep curled up in the same position we originally sat down in, or we will trudge upstairs to our bedroom, and flop onto our comfortable bed. Our cat will of course be on our heels, and we will wake up to some paws trampling on us during the night. The next morning we will wake up to do it all over again.

Below you will find a funny, endearing selection of cat memes. Enjoy! Next, more fluffy feline memes, just because.
