15 passive-aggressive notes from neighbors who have had enough: 'Quit blocking our driveway'

Calling one's inconsiderate neighbor out on their nonsense takes a lot of courage. After all, you don't necessarily want to burn any bridges or provoke them to enact some kind of petty revenge on you. On the other hand, letting your neighbors walk all over you is not going to earn anyone's respect, including the people in your own home. At a certain point, standing up for yourself is inevitable, even if it comes with the risk of losing a cordial relationship with an infuriating neighbor. More o…

‘Why did you even hire me?’: Employee gets fired after only 4 days on the job, manager claims it's because they couldn't afford to have someone train them

‘Why did you even hire me?’: Employee gets fired after only 4 days on the job, manager claims it's because they couldn't afford to have someone train them

The first days of a new job are always the most stressful. You feel the constant need to prove to your manager that they made the right choice to hire you, even when you probably know nothing about the job and don't have anything to show for it yet. Which is why it is surprising that the one who feels the pressure is the new hire when the employer is the one who actually has a lot to prove. Having someone properly train a new employee to do the job right, is the real challenge, a challenge that…

'Stay in my own lane? You got it': Care facility worker told not to help clients during admin hours, boss begrudgingly has to get their hands dirty

This worker worked in a draining middle management position in a care facility that was overseen by a “micromanaging dinosaur” of a boss who demanded strict adherence to rules—even the nonsensical and arbitrary ones they made up—and relishing in the chance at catching workers out for not following them. If you're getting an image of Nurse Ratchet from One Flew Over a Cuckoo's Nest in your mind, you're probably on the right track… At one point, the worker was forbidden from interacting with clie…

'My manager forgot she approved my time off': Boss tries to write up employee for not showing up on approved PTO day, fallout ensues

'My manager forgot she approved my time off': Boss tries to write up employee for not showing up on approved PTO day, fallout ensues

Taking time off work simply should not feel like the stressful endeavor that it is. Since you're contractually entitled to that time, in theory, you should be able to submit your PTO request with no questions asked and no issues getting that request approved. Of course, in practice, it doesn't exactly work out that way. Instead, you end up getting a lot of shade and passive-aggressive behavior, as if you're actively inconveniencing everyone else by giving yourself the vacation you deserve. What…

Upper manager introduces "innovative" new idea against subordinate's advice, it fails spectacularly: 'He doesn't want to admit he made a mistake'

Nobody likes any idea as much as they like their own. And nobody likes their own ideas more than upper management. They'll pick a course, no matter how ill-informed or ill-advised that course is, and steer into it full steam ahead. And, yet, still, there is something admirable, at least, in that kind of confidence; no matter how foolhardy it might sometimes be, that attitude is probably how they got where they are in the first place—that or it's their parents' company. Still, sometimes, as a bu…

'Then a chicken walks out of the back room': 15 Home installation workers share the craziest things they've peeked at in stranger's homes

Home is where the heart is, and it's also where all of your strangest belongings remain. No one knows this better than folks who have jobs that require them to randomly step foot inside people's homes , often with very little warning. Say, for example, a plumber. Maybe your shower isn't draining or your toilet just won't work. You have to call the plumber, and there's usually a set timeframe during which they'll show up to solve your issues. But for some reason, people won't clean up their home…

Male Karen gets thrown out of tattoo parlor, demands to speak to manager on social media, gets roasted: 'You were denied entry for several reasons'

There are certain people you never want to mess with: your barber, the lady at the Department of Motor Vehicles, whoever is cooking your food, and your tattoo artist. Obviously, the lattermost example does not apply to folks who don't want to get tattoos. However, for those who do, throwing a temper tantrum at the person who is about to imprint a permanent design on your body is not the wisest idea. Thankfully, this guy didn't get that kind of petty revenge. Instead, he simply threw this male K…

‘There's more to life than money’: Overworked employee accepts job offer that is $70K lower than current salary, leading to a heated discussion about work-life balance

We all know the famous phrase - “Money can't buy happiness”, and we all surely felt like this statement could not be far from the truth. Many things that make a person happy require money, so it's hard not to look at money as the source of one's happiness and contentment in life. But there still is more to life than just making money. For example, if all you do is make money, and you have no free time to actually spend that money in ways that make you happy, then what is the point of all your h…
