'I just laughed and said, "Nope, not my problem"': Assembly line worker stands up to boss who berates them for being seconds late to work

This person experienced what it's like to work with an unforgiving boss who absolutely must stick to the rules. Maybe you've had this type of boss before: they want you to give them 110% every day, but they also can't forgive any mistake, no matter how small. They treat every mistake as if it's the end of the world. You're two minutes late? Well, that boss will spend twenty minutes telling you how your poor work ethic is impacting you and your colleagues. This is the kind of boss who doesn't wa…

'I noticed my pay getting shorter and shorter': Server exposes boss for putting a cap on his tips and trying to cover it up

Let this story serve as a friendly reminder to be generous to your servers because you really do not know what shady behavior they have had to deal with on the job. Of course, this includes entitled customers and Karens who make their shifts a living nightmare by starting drama, sending food back and forth, and tipping poorly. However, it does not necessarily stop there. Every server has also encountered shady management at some point as well. In this case, we have a server who worked for a sma…

Manager cancels company's social benefit to boost sales, employees foil plan and outmaneuver the managerial team

The business world is calculated and vicious. Whether on purpose or not, there are always some who want to take advantage of your hardship and struggle. The story below is an account of a frustrated employee. For a significant duration, the original poster (OP) was employed by the same company. The social perks that the company provided, such as the number of vacation days that could be carried over to the following year, were among its most notable benefits. Every worker received a total of th…

'Everyone finds out the trainee is actually incapable of doing the job': Boss insists employee stop blaming new hire for any mistakes, employee maliciously complies

Training the new person requires an endless supply of patience. They're going to have lots of questions, make a ton of mistakes, and they'll take up a lot of the time that you've set aside to do your own work. It's also really rewarding to train a new person if they're learning at the right speed. But this person wasn't happy about their trainee. U/ForceAccomplished890 was training the person who was going to replace them! They knew that their boss really disliked them (never a good position to…

Employee brings cookies in for their coworkers, boss sells them instead, employee quits: '[He] decided to sell my gift to my coworkers for a profit'

Most people in this world fall into two camps: Those out to make things better for everyone and those in it for their own gain and to meet their own ends. Sure, this concept sounds quite reductive (it is), and the reality is things aren't quite so black and white… It's more than likely people will play to both sides depending on their current needs and motivations. Still, ultimately, I maintain that if you distilled people down to their true purpose and intention, you'd find the original statem…

'Not my responsibility bro...': Family vacation is derailed by brother's outburst after his sister refuses to dog sit, starting a blame game among the siblings

Your family should always come first. Conversely, setting boundaries and declining help when necessary is perfectly reasonable. The story below is an account of a confused sister. Every year, the original poster (OP) and her family take trips together. OP, however, informed her family that neither she nor her spouse would be able to attend because of her current unemployment. Things were going well at first, but when her brother insisted that she take care of his five dogs the entire journey, t…

Karens spar at a restaurant after after one overhears the other's loud phone conversation: 'I could hear everything'

Karens spar at a restaurant after after one overhears the other's loud phone conversation: 'I could hear everything'

The only thing that can ruin a restaurant meal more than bad food is the presence of an unruly customer. Sometimes, they are clearly lonely and enjoy eavesdropping and inserting themselves into your dinner conversations. When this happens, you tend to indulge them with a few polite exchanges, only to realize that you are going to have to endure this for the next 45 minutes (at least) because you are simply too simply polite to ask them to leave you alone. Other times, your meal is interrupted b…

Customer enacts petty payback on barista for refusing to let him order off the kids menu: 'So you’d rather I not order anything [...] than give you business because of a silly rule?'

Customer enacts petty payback on barista for refusing to let him order off the kids menu: 'So you’d rather I not order anything [...] than give you business because of a silly rule?'

Why is the kids menu always the best? There should not be an age restriction for eating tater tots, chicken tenders, and pigs in a blanket. Those are objectively great-tasting dishes that all humans are entitled to enjoy, and yet, in this instance , we have a coffee shop that denied service to an adult customer simply because he wanted an item on the kids menu. Look, one might assume that there are more important issues than a 29-year-old adult getting denied the right to a bagel because of his…
