‘Free laundry it is…’: Tenant settles the score with entitled landlord after landlord refuses to fix flat and continues to charge a monthly maintenance fee

Fail Blog - Sun, 01/28/2024 - 07:00

It's critical that you and your landlord get along. Maintaining a positive relationship with your landlord could make or break the rest of your stay at that specific apartment complex. But what if, in spite of all your hard efforts, your landlord still considers you offensive? 

In the story below, a furious tenant recounts how he's devised the perfect scheme to exact revenge on his entitled landlord. For context, let me say that OP and his partner recently moved into a new apartment building, but before they signed the lease, they made sure to become familiar with the rules of the building. And yet, there was nothing they could have done to prepare for the day when their landlord would utterly quit on them and forfeit his 'official' landlord responsibilities.

Having said that, read the story below to find out more about the specifics of OP's confrontation with his landlord and how OP got even! When you're done, don't forget to read this story about the entitled customer who fabricated an allergy claim to guarantee a customized dinner!

Tech-Savvy Cats Who Somehow Took Over Their Human's Computers And Sent Messages To Most Cat-astrophic Places

LOL Cats - Sun, 01/28/2024 - 07:00

Cats are simple creatures. Cats need to be fed, to be given water, to have their litterbox cleaned, and that's about it. Or so they want you to think. In reality, these cats who will insist that they are the most independent creatures in the world who don't need no human to help them… want so much from you. Cats love attention. They just need that attention on their own terms. Cats love cuddles. They just need you to somehow know in advance exactly when they'll want you to stop petting them. 

Cats love their humans more than anything in the world and don't let them convince you otherwise. And if you dare to put your attention anywhere other than them for more than 30 seconds, like say… when you're using that ridiculous lightbox you call a computer, our cats will make sure to express their displeasure with us by putting their butts right on said lightboxes.

'I countersued': Tenant turns to revenge after failing to wrest his deposit back from a terrible landlord

Fail Blog - Sun, 01/28/2024 - 06:00

Trying to wrest your deposit back from a surly landlord is like trying to convince a dog to give you a share of his dinner… As in, it's not going to happen without a fight. It's not like your landlord is going to growl and potentially bite you… but it's also not entirely out of the question. Regardless, good luck getting much from either; your landlord considered that "deposit" to be his as soon as it hit his bank account. Never mind the fact that the place was in a state and no cleaning was done before you moved in… or the fact that he proceeded to do zero maintenance during the duration of your tenancy.

All this tenant wanted was to get his deposit back from his terrible landlord, who had originally been a longtime friend of the family. They say never to mix personal relationships and business, and for good reason… Soon, the arrangement went completely sideways due to the landlord being generally unhinged and unrealistic about the entire thing. After moving out of a spotless apartment only to be charged additional fees in addition to his initial deposit, it was time for the gloves to come off.

'I am fully aware I'm not liked here': Employee quits in petty email exchange after their weekend schedule is repeatedly disregarded

Fail Blog - Sun, 01/28/2024 - 05:00

Reading a petty back-and-forth between an employer and an employee is like watching a taboo tennis match. With each message, we fully gasped as the ball was hit into the other person's court and then smashed back. Like tennis, it takes skill and confidence to talk back to your employer with carefully crafted messages full of facts and receipts. 

This employee knew what they were doing and had nothing to lose as it seemed clear they were prepared to leave. They shared this post via this thread on Reddit, which includes a series of emails in which OP's manager tried to pressure them to come in on the weekend despite OP's clear unavailability due to a second job. Of course, the manager played it all innocent and claimed they did not know about OP's other commitments, to which OP fired back with the truth and nothing but the truth. Well, that's not exactly the case. They also fired back with a resignation letter.

Keep scrolling below for the full story. When you're done, check out this post about an ex-employee who was denied their rightful final payment.

'I quit well over 10 years ago': Worker gets called in to work a shift at the fast food place they left 10 years prior

Fail Blog - Sun, 01/28/2024 - 04:00

It's a funny thing, really, leaving a job. One day, a huge part of your life is handling the trials and tribulations of your role, the emotional turmoil of navigating the uniquely terrible sociopolitical drama of your workplace, and the stress of your capricious boss's unpredictable reactions; the next, none of it matters anymore—you're never stepping foot back there again. Of course, the trauma and lasting burnout may take some time to rebound from, but ten years down the track, the very worst memories of your working life will fade like a photograph in the sun. You might even look back on them and laugh.

That is, of course, unless your old job refuses to let you leave your old life behind, calling you years later to ask you questions about your role that should have been handed over during your notice period but weren't because they failed to even acknowledge your resignation until your final days. Heck, they might even call you ten years later demanding that you come in and work a shift, just like Redditor 
u/Bumwungle shared having happened to them ten years after leaving a role.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Calico Cats That Make a Better Cuddle Puddle Than a Sandwich

LOL Cats - Sat, 01/27/2024 - 19:00

You know how they say orange cats have one collective brain cell? Well, my dearest cat lovers, what about cats that are kind of orange? Some felines are stuck in a mixup, sporting colors like brown, gold, black, white, and of course, orange. But the collective brain cell of calico kitties is more complicated to locate because one minute they're the smartest, most distinguished cat on the block, looking down at their hoomans from the highest shelf. And the next minute, they're coughing up a hairball under the bedside table from eating an unnervingly large dust bunny. Like a good ol' trail mix or a grab bag of Halloween candy, multicolored cats give us more than we could ever want and more than we could ever ask for. Despite their under-appreciated lineage, calico kitties steal our hearts with their melange of prowess, while they taunt us with that mischievous little brown smear on their lip, they have you half expecting that they stole your PB&J.

'Looks like my plan worked!': Guy loans 10€ to a shady stranger, gets ghosted until he plays a prank of his own as payback

Fail Blog - Sat, 01/27/2024 - 18:00

To turn the tides of empathy, scammers will say just about anything. In the hopes of getting whatever they want from their targets– money, favors, mercy– scammy strangers try to manipulate the emotions of the situation. Like the guy in our next story, who desperately approached a random person in the gas station, begging to borrow 10€ so he could drive to see his dying mother one last time. 

Jeez, who could say no to that? 

However, u/Titahn took him at his word. One word specifically… "Borrow". Although OP knew he'd never see that 10€ again, since the stranger was so adamant about paying him back (even offering his contact information to follow up), OP's generosity quickly became intertwined with mischief. Scroll for the entire story of how one man's thoughtful gesture made a scammy stranger quickly regret giving him his phone number to follow up. After this, here's another playful prank played on another deserving target, this time to see about a horse. 

'Your wish is my command, nurse lady': Triage nurse gets dissed in front of her peers when an ambulance driver calls out her arrogantly incorrect diagnosis

Fail Blog - Sat, 01/27/2024 - 17:00

The emergency room can be a messy, chaotic place. While nurses are trained to work closely with the ambulance drivers coming through the door carting mortally wounded cargo, valuable time can be wasted in all the 'he said, she said'. Although everyone's just here to help save the lives of innocent strangers, there's an unseen hierarchy within the ranks of any hospital that would make patients sick to their stomachs. 

In an environment where doctors are comparing their knowledge and intellect, the patient's real needs can get lost in the kerfuffle. Just like in our next story…

Oddly satisfying

'Idk Karen': Woman calls the police to the pharmacy because dude won't let her cut in line, gets lectured by the cops about what is an actual emergency

Fail Blog - Sat, 01/27/2024 - 16:00

If there is one thing sure in life, it's that Karens are gonna Karen. There's no stopping it. If they have their eyes on the tantrum-prize, nothing can simmer down that entitlement bubbling up inside. One theory is that Karens have zero empathy; they are simply unable to see anything from anyone else's point of view. Makes sense, really, once you see them in the wild.

'We did exactly what they wanted': First-time homebuyers upset due to ‘missing items’ previous owners tried to leave for them, too late to back out of the deal now

Fail Blog - Sat, 01/27/2024 - 15:00

Sometimes you can repeat yourself a thousand times and be as crystal clear as possible, and someone will still misunderstand you. Like, how much more do you need to spell it out? You literally spelled it out with written words multiple times. You would think this only happens from time to time, but nope. It happens all the time! 

It seemed to happen recently when these veteran homeowners sold their house to some first-time homebuyers. Now, they're not trying to play the blame game here, where the words got confused, they don't know and, honestly, they don't care. They put everything in writing and they are in the clear. Now, the new homeowners are in a pickle, but that's just how the cookie crumbles sometimes. So, to give a quick synopsis, the house they sold has an inground pool and the new homeowners demanded the storage bins be removed or no sale. They tried to explain that those bins contained everything you needed to care for the pool, but their agent insisted that they be removed. So they did just that, and lo and behold, the new homeowners are confused about why the pool equipment was removed. It's too late to get them back now and too late to back out of the deal. What would you do if you were in the shoes of the home-seller or the homebuyer? Read the entire pickle below!

'This girl told me how incompetent the receptionist was': 30+ Terrible job candidates who shocked their interviewers

Fail Blog - Sat, 01/27/2024 - 14:00

How many chances should these interviewers have given their candidates? A lot of these interviewers were surprisingly lenient on their interviewees. 

Going for a job interview is one of those universally scary human experiences. Whether you're 15 or 55, it's still a nerve-wracking endeavor each time. You've got to print out your resumes, read up on the company, iron that business suit, and show up early with a smile on your face. If that seems like just the bare minimum for you, just read these anecdotes. It'll make you feel so much better about that one interview you completely bombed. 

I had no idea how many people like to show up to job interviews in dirty clothing! U/scorpioskillz asked, "Interviewers of Reddit, what's the worst interview you have ever conducted?" and the answers were stunning. A few of these managers greeted their job candidates only to realize the candidate was wearing a grubby tee shirt and shorts. Others didn't have a resume printed out, so they typed a sentence or two and called that their resume. 

Aside from that, a lot of folks just did not understand that if they act weirdly toward their interviewer or the receptionist, the job is not going to be theirs. Never ever underestimate office receptionists: they run everything, and their opinions can decide your fate. 

Check out these stories, then read about some people who acted totally ungrateful, like one woman who threw a tantrum over a laptop because it "wasn't brand new."

Driver Gets Back at Mansplaining Colleague, Sabotages Friend's Plans

Fail Blog - Sat, 01/27/2024 - 13:00

Sometimes, the only way to get someone to leave you alone is to play the game for a bit and wait until the perfect moment for payback. This rideshare driver decided that his female colleague needed guidance, so he took her under his wing. At this point, it sounds like the intentions are well-meaning, but it gets worse really quickly. First, he started to give the Redditor tons of unsolicited advice about her eating. Big red flag right there! Then, he buys her a brand-new iPhone using his mother's money because he claimed that she would need it for work (of course, she had a perfectly well-functioning phone of her own). Then, he insisted that he turn the tracking on her device so he can make sure she is safe at all times.

That's when OP realized she could not let this go on forever. She agreed to help drive a buddy of his to the airport when he was already busy so she could meet up with him afterward and return the phone. As the day approached, the mansplaining stalker started making more and more demands about how his buddy preferred his rides to the airport. All of this started to feel less like a favor and more like a test, so that's when OP decided to stop giving into him. Keep scrolling below for the epic two-part petty revenge. When you're done, here's a story about a teenager who got back at his boss after his pay was unfairly docked.
