Boss lies on incident report after workplace incident, blaming employee: 'Should I confront my boss about this?'

Fail Blog - Fri, 06/14/2024 - 15:00

Health and Safety is no joke—though often made into one by those seeking to display their machismo… Still, it's one of those weird things in workplace culture that is handled with complete polarity—depending on the organization you work for. 

If you work for a "cowboy" small business owner whose organization's growth has far outpaced the professionalism of its structure, one where the owner is used to taking risks that place themselves in danger, relishing these moments with bravado, bragging about them for years afterward. They now fail to weigh their own appetite for risk with their responsibility as a manager, expecting their employees, with no stake in the company, to take the same risks that they do. 

On the flip side, large corporate entities will treat every workplace incident with solemn certainty, ensuring that every incident is reported and investigated with "zero tolerance" policies for those who fail to or falsely report them. Whether intentionally or not, the gravitas that is placed on these incidents actually discourages their proper reporting (but don't you dare suggest that to them) as the cause for every incident must be rooted out, with something (or someone) needing to be blamed for each one. So, those writing the reports will alter the events just enough to ensure that a reason can be pinpointed but without finding themselves in the line of fire. After brutal hour-long grilling sessions with HR and company executives, the agreed-upon "cause" and the "solution" to ensure it never happens again will become the required topic of discussion for any ensuing "toolbox talks" and branch meetings in the foreseeable future.

That's probably what was happening when this worker realized that their boss had falsified information on the incident report that they had submitted detailing the events of an incident that had resulted in an injury for the worker. Instead of changing the incident to blame a faultless cause, the boss had lied and blamed the worker for not wearing the proper PPE that they had been wearing at the time of the incident. See below the worker's account of events that they shared with this popular online workplace community, followed by responses from readers of the original thread.

Doing just fine, thanx

'I cut off the boot in front of the HOA member': Boss and employee rally entire neighborhood against overzealous HOA

Fail Blog - Fri, 06/14/2024 - 14:00

If you're crafty enough, you'd never let something like a boot on your car's tire stop you. You'll have to have a devil-may-care attitude, plus access to some pretty powerful tools. This person knows that all too well, as they shared in a story to the r/AmItheA****** subreddit. 

Putting a boot on someone's car is no laughing matter. Instead of writing a ticket or even snapping a photo of the license plate to report to officials, this HOA decided to stop this dude from driving! Now he wouldn't be able to get to work, or go food shopping, or get to a doctor in an emergency. It's a really serious thing to do,  especially for a minor issue like "illegally parking" somewhere. That's why this person wanted to ask if they were actually in the wrong for bringing their boss the tools to get that boot off. 

In the end, the HOA seemingly made things worse for themselves. As commenters noted, it'd be feasible to vote out the current members and put in new members who have more reasonable views. 

Up next, these retail workers shared the things they really dislike their customers doing, like when they complain about the prices or insist on discounts

A Wholesome Helping Of Funny Felines For Cat Enthusiast Humans In Need Of A Laugh

LOL Cats - Fri, 06/14/2024 - 14:00

Hey, ICanHasCheezburger readers. We are here to shine our fabulous feline spotlight on the inherent humorous nature of our favorite feline companions. Cats have mastered the art of unscripted comedy. Their independent streak leads to hilarious moments: the epic miscalculation that sends them tumbling off a bookshelf, the sudden burst of zoomies across the living room, or the intense concentration on stalking a dust bunny twice their size. Their expressions, from wide-eyed curiosity to grumpy disapproval, are endlessly entertaining. Even their sounds - chirps, trills, and the occasional sassy meow - add to the comical chaos. 

Perhaps their indifference to our amusement and regal goofiness makes them so undeniably funny. All we humans know is that life is more humorous with cats and simply more enjoyable. Our feline companions are there for us through thick and thin with their goofiness to remind us not to take life so seriously, and remember to laugh every once in a while!

Comedic Cat Memes And Pictures Featuring Funny Felines Who Share One Collective Brain Cell

LOL Cats - Fri, 06/14/2024 - 13:00

Hey, cat lovers. Over here at the ICanHasCheezburger editorial office, we've been around long enough to know that life is better with cat memes. And many reasons contribute to this fact. We often like to joke around that our feline friends, especially those of orange descent, share one collective brain cell universally. 

The idea of cats sharing one brain cell is a hilarious exaggeration that playfully pokes fun at their occasional goofy behavior. It works because it's so absurd – the image of cats taking turns with a single brain cell is inherently silly. Cat owners can especially relate to this since they've likely witnessed their feline companions' moments of derpiness. Sometimes the joke focuses on orange tabby cats, adding another layer of lighthearted stereotype. At the end of the day, this silly expression is a way for cat us lovers to bond through laughter, celebrating our precious goofballs' eccentric personalities. Now, let's enjoy some comedic cat memes and pictures, shall we?

'My husband wants to start a "restaurant for magicians"': Woman tries to convince husband not to sink money into his new restaurant idea

Fail Blog - Fri, 06/14/2024 - 12:00

This woman wonders if her magic-loving husband is about to do a disappearing act with all of their money. 

One woman took to Reddit to ask for advice on a really bizarre situation brewing between her, her husband, and his friend Chris. It's a doozy. She's been with her husband for 8 years, and they have two young kids together, supported only by his income. But now her husband is insisting on following his dreams, probably thanks to a new friend. 

Now, let's break this down a little, because by the title, you might think, "Well a restaurant full of magic tricks and magicians walking around sounds kind of fun! Dorky, but fun for a lot of people nevertheless." But wait! It's a restaurant for magicians who want to impress their dates with impromptu magic tricks. So the crowd they're aiming to please is magicians who are single and want to repeatedly take their first dates to the same place. Oh, and because the magicians are in on the tricks, the general public is not. So somehow, the restaurant will have to advertise its business model while never revealing it (???). It raises about 10,000 questions. 

It's a sort of cool idea, and on a night out with your friends, maybe that would impress a few inebriated bros. But in reality, unless you're a millionaire who's ready to lose tons of money (and not a dude with a wife and two kids), that idea is really not going to fly. Check out the full story below, plus advice from commenters who had a variety of ideas for u/davidcopperfield9273 to try out. 

Then, check out the crazy stories of really excellent employees who got fired after making terrible decisions

20+ eye-opening industry secrets: 'Job requirements are more of a wish-list situation'

Fail Blog - Fri, 06/14/2024 - 11:00

The best part of having friends in different industries is that they can share knowledge with you that most folks are completely unaware of…

This can be useful whether or not you have an interest in that particular industry. For instance, based on these responses in this Reddit thread, I surprisingly learned information about refrigerator models that I will take with me the next time I need one. Sharing industry secrets can be more of a selfless act than a shady one. If there are simpler solutions for customers that would result in saving money, perhaps it's not a good idea to let your boss know that you're sharing those tricks of the trade but perhaps one's moral obligation is to share said secrets so that people can potentially save a buck. 

Keep scrolling below for this brand new collection of industry secrets. When you're done, check out this post about an employee who stood up to his boss regarding outside work events.

We're happy to see you back here again, I Can Has-ers. You're here for the same reason we are - you can't get enough of the beautiful, fluffy creatures we call cats. Not only are they gorgeous and purrfect in every way, but they are also incredibly derpy, so much to the point that the internet has started to worship them (as they should). We're doing it right now. If cats could access the internet and could see how many pictures of them there are on the internet, we're sure they would be purrfectly pleased and laugh in our hooman faces. 

Cats are ameowzing because they are the purrfect mixture of hilarious and cute.

'Do I look like I set the prices?': 20+ Customer complaints that retail workers never want to hear again

Fail Blog - Fri, 06/14/2024 - 08:00

Cashiers are really tired of hearing the same quips over and over from their customers. They're so bored by them that they don't even react anymore. For example, a cashier will be ringing up a customer's clothes, and one of the shirts doesn't scan. They have to walk out into the store to find that item and get the right price. All the while, the customer is joking around, saying that if the shirt doesn't have a price tag on it, it must be free! Hahahaha! Isn't that just so funny and original? 

Well, no, the cashier doesn't find that joke original because they've heard it three times already today. It starts to break them down after a while: instead of just laughing, it makes them want to scream. Of course, the customers just think they're being witty and clever (although some actually do get upset that the merchandise isn't free, strangely enough). And that's just one of the many complaints that retail workers have about their worst customers. You can check them all out below. 

Next up, these single folks are revealing the funniest and least cool meals they make for themselves, like one person who "bought a head of lettuce and ate it like an apple over the sink." 

Builder gets back at Karen celebrity for trying to obstruct their building site: 'I went ahead and called the police'

Fail Blog - Fri, 06/14/2024 - 07:00

We have this tendancy as a society to assume that just because someone is notably successful in one area that they must be a paragon of humanity in all other ways when—well, this often couldn't be farther from the actual truth. 

See, there's this thing that happens to those who have early success—or have success thrust upon them thanks to nepotistic opportunity—where they also think they're better than everyone else. If they found their success through a singular focus on their chosen path, it's incredibly likely that they let other life skills and ethics fall to the wayside along the way in pursuit of their goals. And, if they never had to truly work for what they achieved—well, they're going to be truly insufferable indeed. 

No, a great person great deeds do not make… That's why it's no surprise that, as technology brings greater exposure to celebrities, we're finding that, more often than not, they're not everything we hoped they might be. 

In this case, this builder came head-to-head with a Karen celebrity when working on a job site in close proximity to their residence. See the original story they shared with this popular online community below.

Employees discuss hacks for getting the most out of vacation days at work: 'If you have a 9-5 job and don't plan on going on a vacation, schedule a three-day weekend for yourself every month'

Fail Blog - Fri, 06/14/2024 - 06:00

If you're fortunate enough to get paid time off, you should be using it. Even if you don't have anything planned, it's nice to take a mental break every once in a while. But sometimes, we can find ourselves at the end of the year with extra PTO that we forgot to use. That can be nice if your PTO carries over onto the next year or if you get additional pay for not using those days. But a lot of companies don't allow that time to roll over. In any case, you should still use your time off wisely. Maybe you don't have enough time off to take a whole vacation, or maybe you can't afford to. Whatever your reason for keeping your days is, there are some clever ways to incorporate time off throughout the year. Below, these employees break down different ways they like to take a day off here and there. Whether it's by taking a Wednesday off to break up the week or taking a Friday and Monday off to get that extra-long weekend, they break down their reasonings below.

'You don't leave a company high and dry all at once?!': Boss enforces three months notice after mass quitting, causes more backlash

Fail Blog - Fri, 06/14/2024 - 05:00

Talk about a way to turn your few remaining loyal employees against you! 

This boss decided that the best way to respond to a mass quitting was to send a hostile message to the remaining folks on her team enforcing new strict policies. Those policies were that if anyone decided to leave, they needed to put in three months' notice before doing so. First of all, this boss must be foolish because she simply cannot enforce that when it comes to at-will employment. Second of all, what she should be doing after this first wave of mass quitting is to do everything in her power to prevent another one. That does not mean enforcing strict bogus policies that will only cause more backlash. That means doing some genuine self-reflection, deciphering why so many people quit at once, and changing policies to better reflect the employees' experience.

Keep scrolling below for the full email from this horrible boss and for the best reactions from folks in the comments section. For more, take a look at this post about an employee who confronted their supervisor about work parties.
