18-year-old files report against parents for opening multiple credit cards in his name: 'It turns out I owe over $15,000'

These parents took family dysfunction to a whole new level. Not only did they open multiple credit cards in their 18-year-old son's name without telling him, but also the mother tried to brush it off by saying her mom did the same thing to her, as if this were some rite of passage when you become an adult. The Redditor discovered that he owed over $15,000 and, of course, his credit score completely plummeted. When he confronted his parents about the whole scheme, they had the audacity to give h…

'I’m not a flashy person in the slightest': Boss criticizes employee's personal spending habits, claims it looks bad while company is doing layoffs

What you choose to spend your hard-earned money on should be of no concern to your employer. You work hard for your money, so you should be able to use it to buy what you want. Even if you don't need more clothes, collectibles, fancy dinners, or whatever else you choose to spend your money, it's just that - it's your money. Well, this employee is being scolded by his boss for what he's been spending his money on recently. And here's the kicker - it's not even flashy items. One of the recent ite…

'The yellow line is where my responsibility ends': Woman "pushes her luck" to get groundskeeper to cut back all her weeds

This woman had some questions for a local gardener —if only she had been a little nicer about it. The older I get, the more my respect grows for people who do physical labor. To say it's hard work is an understatement. Have you ever watched a garbage collector work for a minute or two as they toss bag after bag of trash into the truck, and then you realize they do this impressive feat for eight hours straight ? The same goes for landscapers and gardeners. Though some of them use riding mowers,…

Boss cuts productive employee's hours, they quit, boss gets fired due to drop in performance: 'So, I quit'

Being charged with the responsibility of a section of a business usually means that it's implied that you'll hold that section's interests at a level of most importance and not jeopardize them over petty slights and egotistical battles with your subordinates and external parties. Yet, some people can't help themselves and let their ego get involved in every possible decision, finding themselves battling for superiority at every step of the way rather than managing the task they've been employed…

Forgotten employee at big company has no boss and no work to do, collects nice paycheck for doing nothing: 'I'm riding the wave till its crests'

This dude may have found the ideal work environment. Perhaps this is one of the advantages of working for such a big company because occasionally, things fall through the cracks. That seems to be the case for this employee , who was hired six months ago by a woman whose position was subsequently eliminated right before the employee started. Well, he ended up in a reclusive office that no one ever went to and where he was completely left alone. Furthermore, he was given no tasks to complete. At…

'Nothing slowed this man down but other customers putting him in his place': Entitled Boomer claims he has a medical condition and can't wait in line, waiting customers stand up for employees

Hopefully, this story will restore your faith in humanity a bit. We can all agree that waiting in line is the worst. But what are you going to do about it? You can choose not to wait and maybe try again another time. But you can't force the employees to work faster. It's usually not their fault either, but unfortunately, they get the blame most of the time as customers need somewhere to vent their angered feelings. It's not fair, but that's what happens. In the story below, an entitled man coul…

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

Health and Safety is no joke—though often made into one by 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 machismo and bravado, bragging about them for years afterward. They now f…

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

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 b…

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.

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

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 soluti…

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

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?…

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…
