Gen X workers who changed careers after 50 explain why and offer advice for other employees looking to do the same: 'It's only too late to change lanes when you decide it's too late'

Fail Blog - Wed, 06/12/2024 - 10:00

Who says it's ever too late for a career change? In reality, we go through so much change in our lives. How can we expect to pick a career in our early 20s and be expected to love it until we retire? Sometimes, that is the case. But most times, you learn a lot of things in life that you couldn't have possibly known about yourself at a young age, and you shouldn't have to suffer at the hands of your younger self when you are, in fact, much wiser and more mature. The truth is, you can change paths whenever you want in life. You deserve to be happy and spend every day doing what you love. But we get it. As you get older, that task becomes much more daunting. So take it from these Gen X folks below. 

It all started with a man in his 50s who has run a painting business his whole life, but now that he's turned 50, he's more than sure he doesn't want to live out the rest of his working life painting. But he thinks he doesn't have any other skills and doesn't even know where to look to find another career. So these Gen Xers who've been in the same boat share their insights about changing careers after 50 and how it went for them. Just remember - it's never too late!

Tenant gets trapped in his apartment when a faulty doorknob jams closed, seeks revenge after getting abandoned for 4 hours by the new leasing agency : ‘Destroy your landlord’

Fail Blog - Wed, 06/12/2024 - 09:00

Landlords everywhere are raising the rent. Their reasoning? Rising costs, I suppose. Well, every renter that's ever forked over ½ their paycheck to a pair of greasy landlord hands knows that this is a farce. Your hard-earned paycheck is just lining the pockets of whatever landlord or leasing agency is managing your apartment–and I'd bet ½ my paycheck that, while you're paying more every month, you're likely getting far less. 

For the renter in our next story, his building's transfer to a new leasing agency was the first of many huge property letdowns. After living in his apartment for 7 years, he'd finally had enough when the emergency phone line to the maintenance crew onsite left him hanging. In fact, after a potentially life-threatening incident, the original poster of this story stands by his two-week notice. 

Scroll for the whole story of how a guy got trapped in his apartment and then abandoned by his emergency maintenance crew, only to seek revenge a few days later.

'Bought a head of lettuce and ate it... over the sink': 25+ Single people admit the most uncool meals they've ever concocted

Fail Blog - Wed, 06/12/2024 - 08:00

For single folks, "meal" is such a strong word. Making a "meal" requires time, effort, and possibly a stovetop. When you have a partner, you tend to want to make them beautiful meals with garnishes, or hearty meals that take hours to make (since it's a labor of love). When you're a single dude, though, all bets are off.

Any food is a meal if you believe in yourself. Lately, when I don't feel like cooking for my single self, I make "charcuterie dinner." It includes strawberries, pineapple, a tiny cheese wheel, some chips, and a pickle slice, among other items I can find in my pantry. There's no cooking involved at all. I arrange it in a pretty way on a plate, and voila: a meal of sorts, and I'm only a little embarrassed if my roommate witnesses it. I've gotten so lazy as to buy pre-cooked rice from the store, where it can go from freezer to microwave to plate in under five minutes. Does it taste like eating a plastic bag? Yes. Yes, it sure does. But is it a foodstuff that will propel me through writing this article for all our lovely readers? Yes, I would hope so. 

Other singletons take it way further than I. They're pushing the boundaries: like, what is a plate, anyway? If you don't want to wash dishes, and you put all of your food on a tortilla so that you never have to wash a plate, is that acceptable? There are many other genius life hacks (or "single guy" meals to be specific) included below.

After you check out these funny meal stories, read about the funny food delivery instructions that had nothing to do with food, like one person who instructed, "Send a Virgo."

Efficiency consultant "experts" advise firing the wrong employee cost the company their biggest account: 'Business went from $200k to zero'

Fail Blog - Wed, 06/12/2024 - 07:00

A surprising amount of experts and analysts get hired to improve the efficiency of businesses that they know nothing about, putting more effort into marketing themselves and trying to ensure corporate clients than into ensuring their analysis offers any actual value—or that their statistics hold any actual significance. At the end of the day, all they care about is that they're able to give the client some result, a result that the manager who hired them is going to take at face value since they don't understand it anyway. Besides these managers probably couldn't care less, they've got budgets to spend and reports to write and even if it's all just a big sham, they're covering all their bases—besides it's probably their friend's or cousin's "business improvement consultancy" they're hiring anyways. 

The worst case scenario for you, the low-level employee, is that your name or position comes up in one of these bogus reports, pointing at—no, scapegoating—you as the problem. IF this happens you might find yourself on the chopping block and not ever know why, even if you were actually one of the organization's most productive workers, just not according to the numbers they were looking at.

‘I simply didn't want you to come’: Entitled coworker gets excluded from coworker's birthday party, confronts entire office about it, but gets shut down by the birthday celebrator

Fail Blog - Wed, 06/12/2024 - 06:00

Is there a stage in our lives when we should stop throwing birthday parties to ourselves? Probably. Birthday parties are overrated, pointless, and most importantly, a cause for drama. It does not mean one should not enjoy their birthday and celebrate the day they were born, but when you are 30 and still get excited about balloons and birthday cakes, drama is surely on the way.

This Reddit story is a good example of that drama, and although I do not think the drama was the fault of the birthday girl, reading this story made me feel like I am back in middle school. OP (original poster) works in an office with one extremely entitled coworker. That coworker was not invited to another coworker's birthday party, simply because she is an unpleasant person to be around, and that led to her confronting the entire office about being excluded. Up until the birthday girl herself flat out told the coworker all the reasons why she failed to invite her to the party.

Entire team asked to take 70% pay cut after incompetent boss messes up contract negotiation: 'Virtually nobody is accepting this insulting offer'

Fail Blog - Wed, 06/12/2024 - 05:00

Imagine your boss getting your entire team together and then casually asking all of you to take a massive pay cut. 

It's possible that you've been in a similar situation, where you have been encouraged to "take one for the team," so to speak. But here's the truth: taking a pay cut is far from taking one for the team. It's taking one for the boss, who likely has not been asked to do the same. In this specific instance, how could you be taking one for the team if the entire team is getting hurt by this new policy? 

Thankfully, in this case, the Redditor and their team members refused to go quietly. Folks in the comments seemed to relate deeply to the position of being faced with such a ridiculous ask by an employer. Keep scrolling below for their reactions.

Impawsibly Sweet Orange Cat Named Milo Nurtures the Newborn Hooman Baby Since Kittenhood, Adorable Friendship Ensues

LOL Cats - Tue, 06/11/2024 - 19:00

They say you should never have a newborn baby and a kitten in the house at the same time. Since kittens are essentially little fur goblins with no control of their mean-beans, no sleep schedule, and a hankering for mischief, I can see why the experts suggest raising your hooman baby and your feline baby separately. However, there are wholesome exceptions where newborn hoomans and feisty kittens can become besties just outside the womb.

The woman in our next story was granted a kitten by the Cat Distribution System in the early stages of her pregnancy, which posed a conundrum. She would be forced to raise the kitten and the baby at the same time and in the same house. However, using his feline senses and exceptional intuition, Milo the orange kitten knew at an early age that his hooman mama had a little brother on the way for him to play with. When the newborn baby was finally born, Milo did the unthinkable and became this baby's feline pawtector, guarding the baby's crib, cuddling for warmth, and sharing wholesome cuddles with the kiddo. 

Although he terrorized every adult hooman in the house, the baby became his best friend. 

Scroll for the video that went viral showcasing their wholesome furrendship.

Underbidding neighbor tries to make new landowner's life difficult, they return the favor: '[He] was upset I bought the property he wanted'

Fail Blog - Tue, 06/11/2024 - 15:00

When you're looking to buy property you're classically given advice by your older relatives that you should go around the neighborhood knocking on doors and asking people who live there what they think of the area. While sound advice it comes from an era long past where community was a staple part of everyday life. Nowadays you can go years without ever meeting the people living across the street so you probably don't care what they think of the area and, besides, who is honestly going to tell you that they hate where they live?

This now optimistic advice presents a few problems. What if one of those people has a personal interest in the property… or otherwise has prejudice or other motivation for discouraging you from pursuing it? If you're looking to surprise competition with an early offer you may just end up showing your hand. 

While having good neighbors and not having bad ones is important for many reasons, that will always be a grab bag… Nothing is stopping your neighbors from moving away at any point and tipping the scales in the other direction anyway.

'I decide to go full loophole': Bank branch worker helps customer stuck in phone call loop

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

This person deserves a medal after spending ages helping one customer. If not a medal, they at least deserve some kudos from their boss for taking the time to help a Spanish-speaking customer figure out her way around a complex phone system. 

In a customer service role, employees often have to help people who are straight-up mean to them. They call when they're angry or annoyed already, and they start demanding that the employee solve every one of their problems instantly. It must've been a nice break from that for this worker at a bank branch: instead of having an upset customer, this poor lady just needed a lot of extra help. 

I'm sure this woman will never forget the act of kindness that u/GTAIVisbest showed her. This employee could've easily dismissed her problems. Instead, they write that they "really want to help," and went above and beyond to prove it. They could've easily dismissed this woman's problems, but she certainly needed the extra help, and was lucky to have such an accommodating employee on her side. 

After that, check out the employee who had a crafty way of supplying a photo for HR without actually getting his face in the picture, writing that he "went for another technicality."

Employee figures out toxic boss is watching their every move and no one else, plans payback: 'The camera is pointed directly at me'

Fail Blog - Tue, 06/11/2024 - 13:00

It's easy to feel like your boss is always watching over you like a hawk, and nine times out of ten, they have more important things to be doing than monitoring your every move. However, every so often, you may find yourself in a sticky situation where your greatest suspicions have been confirmed, and you are stuck in one of those toxic work environments that everyone writes about on the internet these days. 

When this happens, the key is to immediately start thinking about ways to protect yourself. That means looking at the fine print of your contract, brushing up on your resume so you can start looking for better jobs, and preparing yourself for an unfortunate but inevitable confrontation with your employer. 

For this Redditor, it did not take long for them to realize that there was a poorly hidden video camera in their private office, pointed directly at them. Given that their boss would occasionally say things that would immediately confirm to the employee that they were being monitored, it was quite clear that this camera was not planted for security purposes. What's even more curious is that other folks at this employee's level were not being watched like this. To the Redditor's knowledge, there were no cameras planted in their offices (not that this would be ethical either). So why this employee? 

Folks in the comments section had a few compelling ideas as to what the reason could be. Keep scrolling below for the full story and for their reactions. For more tales of workplace drama, check out this collection of top embarrassing work stories.
