'He struggled. He struggled hard': Boastful braggart requests chef's hottest dish and lives to regret it

Fail Blog - Wed, 01/25/2023 - 06:00

People really will just pick the most random thing and build their personality around it; it's as if they just spun a wheel of haphazardly selected topics and went with the first thing it landed on.

Enter I-can-eat-hotter-foods-than-you guy; everyone knows this guy, and chances are he's one of your friends or a friend of a friend and—well… is kinda known for being a boastful egomaniac. Somehow, at some point, he decided to base his fragile ego around the spice levels of food, and now he's going to let you know about it—loudly—and at every chance, the topic is remotely relevant. You'll be embarrassed every time you go out to eat with him as he swaggeringly announces to every waiter that he wants the food as hot as possible.

This chef managed to get back at one of these guys by orchestrating a delicious malicious compliance to a boastful braggart's request—sending him to the shadow realm of spice.

'I can't believe someone could be so heartless': Boss shames employee for missing a team day after his wife had a seizure

Fail Blog - Wed, 01/25/2023 - 05:00

As Kanye West once said, "How could you be so heartless?" This horrible boss decided to confront their employee about missing a mandatory in-office team day despite already knowing that the employee was taking care of his wife after she suffered from a seizure. Yup, you read that correctly. A literal seizure. And yet this guy still had the nerve to confront the employee about it, shame him, and then threaten to not give him the raise he requested.

 

This thread was posted to Reddit's r/antiwork subreddit by u/MuukenTuuken, and honestly, people should use this post as a blueprint for what not to do when you're someone's boss because this is just ludicrous. Sure, the employee's wife may have a non-life-threatening form of epilepsy, but it's still epilepsy regardless! Keep scrolling below to see what people had to say in the comments section.

20+ Wholesome Feline Memes for Hooman Cat Lovers Who Need a Mid Week Pick Me Up

LOL Cats - Wed, 01/25/2023 - 01:00

Human beings have pets because they're comforting. Our natural maternal/paternal instincts are satisfied when we care for a smol furry critter, especially when they show us how much they love us. For cats, it's rather rare to see any signs of gratitude from your feline, but their love is just as wholesome as it is subtle. Your kitty might show you that they love you by laying on your lap (now you can't move to go to the bathroom). Your gato might show their affection with a kneady tummy cuddle or a flick of their tail. Cats might even show their affection when they stare at you, with unblinking eyes, from their perch on the highest shelf in the room. They're either looking out for you and watching your back, or their plotting their aerial attack. That's the thing with cats, they always keep you on your toes– and that's why we love them. 

25 Relatable Memes to Abolish the Monday Blues and Help Exhausted Employees Get Through the Work Week

Fail Blog - Tue, 01/24/2023 - 17:00

We go to work because we want money, simple as that. No sane person is clocking in everyday because they love the "company culture", pathetic Dominos pizza parties, or because they want to engage in (near) slave labor to make corporate CEO's fat and happy. If you're on that grind this week and you're feeling the Monday blues hit harder than ever, sometimes the only way to cope is to check out some memes– even if it's just to know that you're not the only one who hates your job. Sure, you're counting down the days until you're a millionaire like a lot of nine-to-fivers, so you may be on day 874 of "getting this bread" and the labor world is seeming more and more gluten free. Your only hope is to keep playing the lotto, enjoy crime podcasts on your 45 minute commute, and savor the delicate, commiserating wonders of being a pawn in the capitalist machine. 

‘Did You Block Me?’ : Best Dating App Fails of the Week for the Tired Crowd

Fail Blog - Tue, 01/24/2023 - 15:00

Another week of scrolling, swiping, liking, and unmatching is underway, and between that and work, I'm tired. More tired than usual. In my humble opinion, Tinder is both the best and the worst thing to happen to humanity, in the sense that it has created more distance than ever between people, yet also simultaneously brought them together. I dunno, it's one of the many advantages and disadvantages of having technology. It's become hard to approach people in real life, although to be fair I wasn't really that much more courageous before dating apps were a thing. 

So maybe I can't blame my personality on technology after all. It would be so much easier though, that's for sure. Who would have thought back in the day that we'd be paying to find love? Literally, paying. Hi Tinder Gold, this is a personal shoutout. It's not a secret that dating apps are designed in a way that you don't actually match with people you like.

So, without further ado, scroll down and check out the funniest dating app fails of the week for the people who get it. And for some good old nostalgia via a Reddit thread, click here.

'She's now moved me from the nice room to put her other two bridesmaids in there': Divisive bridezilla splits family up over expensive rooms

Fail Blog - Tue, 01/24/2023 - 14:00

No one ever said planning a wedding was a stress-free walk in the park, but some brides and grooms just cannot remember to be kind to people as they plan their big day. On the r/Bridezillas subreddit, people constantly post about the biggest bridezillas in their lives, and ask for advice on how to handle delicate situations. This person's relationship with the bride has devolved so much that the OP doesn't even know if they should show up to the wedding at all. 

As the OP writes, first, the bride alienated a lot of family members by picking and choosing specific people from the family to come, even when that meant picking 2 people out of a 4-person family. Talk about awkward! 

Then, the bride chose a pricey venue located a few hours away, meaning a hotel or bed and breakfast is a must for the entire family. The OP has to try and avoid getting one of the 's***' rooms at the hotel, and then their sis tries to make them room with their 3-year-old half sibling. Not exactly ideal scenarios either way! 

Keep scrolling to read the whole situation from this entitled bride. Then, read about this Karen who missed out on a 5-figure solution to her monetary problems, all because she yelled at the wrong person.

Happy Orange Cat Can't Wait To Play Outside After Snowfall (Video)

LOL Cats - Tue, 01/24/2023 - 13:00

Hey feline fanatics. Have you ever seen a cat go crazy for the snow? We sure haven't. We're used to seeing out cats approach the snow, take one step in, and then hop right back out. Brrr. The snow is cold on those sensitive little toe beans. But today, we came across a sweet orange cat who is anything but put off by the snow- rather he is so very excited to jump right into the snow and get his fun on. 

After a very brief time out in the snow, he says to himself/herself "Right that's it, I'm done. Back into the warmth and a well-earned snooze after that lengthy bout of exercise" and comes back inside. That moment was entirely too relatable. We love to see cats, and all other animals, playing, exploring, and having a grand old time. It warms our animal-loving hearts, and this video hit the spot.

McDonald's Accidentally Hands Guy $5,000 Instead of His Food Order, Valiantly Returns It, Goes Insanely Viral and Doesn't Know What to Do

Fail Blog - Tue, 01/24/2023 - 12:30

This man was thrust into major local popularity and he has no idea what to do with it, and that is somehow making him even more popular! 

Josiah Vargas recently went insanely viral overnight after posting a TikTok video of a McDonald's incident where he ended up being the hero. Some employee, who must haven been overworked, exhausted, or something, handed Vargas a McDonald's bag, thinking it was his drive-thru order. However, after he drove away and looked inside the bag, he found wads and wads of cash. It turns out they accidentally handed him $5,000 of their deposit money. Vargas, being a good samaritan, returned the money and the employees of the McDonald's were so relieved and grateful they were crying and hugging him. They also gave him $200 and a free month of McDonald's.

He didn't care about any of that, but it didn't matter, because after he posted that video he instantly blew up. He went viral on the app and has no been interviewed on local news outlets, radio stations, and more. He has no idea how to handle the overnight fame, but says he is getting help from his Gen Z sister. Apparently, it was her idea in the first place for him to make a video of him returning the money. Now, her is simply trying to figure out how to be his awkward self while also using his new fame to it's advantage. His awkward videos are so true to himself, it's actually working and making him even more popular.

'You weren't willing to pay the extra £40... Do you remember now?' Hotel clerk gets satisfying revenge against entitled guest by telling on him

Fail Blog - Tue, 01/24/2023 - 12:00

While traveling, picking the proper hotel room for your visit doesn't seem like the most important detail… until it's time to rest and unwind on the first night of your stay. One fed-up hotel clerk shared their story to r/Talesfromthefrontdesk. As they recall, this husband made room reservations at this hotel, but he chose a busy weekend to stay. When choosing between two rooms, one large and one small, he hastily chose the small one. But later on, his wife was furious with the arrangement. Then, how could this husband manage to save face? Well, he lied, of course! The OP wasn't about to let this irritating guy win, and simply used his own words against him. It's a very satisfying tale overall!

'We got a pre-paid debit card with my dog's name on it': Puzzling mystery ensues after woman keeps getting mail addressed to her dog Skipper

Fail Blog - Tue, 01/24/2023 - 11:30

It all started a month after a couple moved into a new home with their dog. They had hardly been in their new place for more than a month when they started getting mail that was not addressed to them. Usually, people will get mail from the previous tenants or something like that. But this couple was getting mail addressed to their dog. 

At first it was funny, the dog's first piece of mail was a Jiffy packet of recipes. It was addressed to their dog's first name Skipper and one of the couple's last name. They asked all their friends and family if they had done this, but they were all just as confused. They checked all of their accounts to see if maybe they put their dog's name down for something and forgot, but they hadn't. Even their dog-related accounts, like the vet's office or their Chewy account was not under their dog's name. 

It got even more confusing after receiving two at-home Covid tests in the mail addressed to Skipper and then a pre-paid Western Union debit card with Skipper's name on it. That is when they took to TikTok to see if anybody else has experienced this. What should they do? They called Western Union and they just said someone must have sent it to them in their dog's name and that's that. So now they have all this free stuff… Well, technically their dog does.

'I don’t owe this money but in fact they owed me': HOA tries to trick tenant into paying aunt's debts, tenant fights back

Fail Blog - Tue, 01/24/2023 - 11:00

Your daily reminder that HOAs are the worst! This thread, which was posted to Reddit's r/MaliciousCompliance subreddit, is just further proof of this well-known fact. In this instance, the Redditor had been living with their aunt, the owner of the apartment, when she died. The Redditor was then led to believe by the HOA that they were responsible for paying off her debt.

 

First of all, the Redditor was not her next of kin, but that didn't matter for the HOA, which tried to trick the Redditor by making them the primary tenant after the aunt's death so that they could settle the issue. Well, when the Redditor crunched the numbers, they realized that they actually overpaid their portion of the rent and that the HOA owed them a significant amount of money. Thankfully, they stood up for themselves and traded strongly-worded emails until finally, they were able to get someone on the phone and prove them wrong. Hats off to the original poster for sticking with it and winning out in the end! We rarely get to see a story involving an HOA and have it end positively. Keep scrolling below for the full details.

'AITA for insulting my sister’s wacky baby names?': Woman disagrees with sister's "stripper" baby names and causes dispute

Fail Blog - Tue, 01/24/2023 - 10:00

This sister brought out her sister's rage when she gave her opinion of her sister's baby names. Now, it's usually never a good idea to "Yuck someone's yum." but — here's the thing: She's right.

There are a couple of things that are concerning about the sister's behavior, both with how she regards her pregnancy (and the personal significance she's loaded into it) and the names she is suggesting using.

If you think your unborn child represents what is going to be your "redemption," then oh boy, do I feel bad for that child. There's nothing like having the weight of perfection poured onto you before you're even born to create a future adult with "gifted child burnout" or severe entitlement issues — depending on how things play out. 

And that's before you even get to the name; commenters here have it right: if you desperately want to express your individuality by naming your child something extravagant — save your child the hardship and change your own name to that instead.

14 Fabulous Traveling Felines: Cats Who Love To Accompany Their Humans On All Kinds Of Trips

LOL Cats - Tue, 01/24/2023 - 10:00

Hey pals. Every time we go on a vacation, we try to explore all possibilities to ensure that either we take our pets with us, or leave them in the hands of folks who will provide them with excellent care while we are away. Though, for day trips, we welcome the company of our felines! Not every cat enjoys the great outdoors, in fact, many of them prefer to stay within the confines of their comfy homes where they have total power and can easily access all of their food and toys. 

Today we're bringing you 14 fabulous felines who love to accompany their humans on all kinds of trips. We call this squad the 'Traveling Kitties.' Some of them are even decked out in trip-appropriate clothing and protective gear and we are absolutely living for it. Cats are cute, awesome, interesting creatures. The wholesome goodness of felines rubs off on us daily and we are thankful. 

Don't Read If You Aren't Ready To Cry This Morning: Heartwarming Story Of A Cat That Shows Her Love For Her Best Friend (18 Images)

LOL Cats - Tue, 01/24/2023 - 09:00

It's 9 AM and we were not emotionally prepared for this, so we're giving you a warning: If you're not ready to cry, save this post for a time when you are and then come back to it.

So, everyone who's here is ready for a good emotional release? Amazing. Meet Scout, a kitty who was raised with an older dog, Charlie. Scout immediately took to Charlie and they became best friends. They were inseparable - they would eat together, sleep together, play together, everything. Scout loved to smell Charlie's ears, and Charlie would just lay there while she enjoyed herself. Two weeks ago, Charlie passed away from cancer. Scout, and the owner, were devastated. It was clear that Scout missed Charlie, and when they put videos of Charlie on the iPad for Scout to watch, Scout would watch them silently, so intensely focused, then lay down on the iPad in an attempt to be closer to Charlie. We're even tearing up as we write this, it's so heartfelt, sad, and beautiful at the same time. The pictures below make it even more emotional, so buckle up. 

This is an honest message from us to you - love your pets every second you are with them. Kiss them more, and when you are playing with them really be with them. They deserve your full attention and before you know it, they will be gone. We're signing off now to get a tissue, but we love you all. Now go give your pet snuggles ASAP!

Entitled Family Demands Medical Assistance, Embarrassed by Over-the-Top Emergency Medical Response

Fail Blog - Tue, 01/24/2023 - 09:00

Be careful what you wish for! If what you desire is urgent medical assistance (for a non-urgent injury) from someone who isn't qualified or even capable of providing that assistance.

The real truth of the matter is that this family felt entitled to receive attention from this customer service representative simply because they were a customer service representative — and that's what they're there for, right? To justify your need to feel important.  

I don't know if I can really stand by this college's employee policy of not intervening and providing assistance in any medical emergencies — that's why good samaritan laws exist. You should do whatever you can to help or save someone who is having a medical event; instating policies that demand otherwise is just evidence of the kind of antisocial and negligent hellscape that modern corporatism has thrust upon us. This feels especially relevant here since an allergic reaction to a bee sting can be life-threatening if it causes anaphylaxis. 

In this case, though, the sting was very non-threatening, and this family just wanted—no— demanded attention. In the end, they got their comeuppance in the form of exactly what they requested… The monkey's paw curls.
