Family get-togethers always bring an unnecessary amount of shade and entitlement. As you get older, you only notice it more and more and ti just becomes less and less bearable.

Instead, he had to six at a table of six years olds once again.

'[I] will be expecting overtime pay': Tech employee agrees to work 36 hours straight at bosses insistence

The longest most of us ever work is 10 or 12 hours in a day, but this person had to work many more than that. In some jobs, people technically work a schedule of one week on, one week off. If you're a home nursing aid, that might be necessary for you to properly care for your client. But it's not like you're literally working 100% of the time. You still have breaks to eat meals or make phone calls, and you sleep at night while your patient is also asleep. No one would make their employee work s…

'Old boss told me to contact his lawyers... So I did': Worker fired for workplace injury, sues for commission they weren't being fairly paid

Oftentimes, in life, it can be startling just how incompetent some people are, they may be incompetent even to the point of cruelty and you may be convinced that cruelty is their base and driving function. However, as Hanlon's Razor reasons for us, we should “ Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.” Of course, this doesn't always apply when greed and lust for power are driving forces, though stupidity often plays into these decisions too. Stupidity or cruelty…

Nepo baby embarrasses mom at work via malicious compliance: 'Want me to interrupt you while you're talking to your boss? Ok!'

Nepotism is here to stay in this world, so we might as well enjoy the tomfoolery it can create in the workplace. While I personally would never want to work with the mother or daughter in this story, at the same time, I can applaud them for at least embracing that absolute professionalism in the workplace is kind of impossible to master. To fully pretend like the Redditor in this story is not the manager's daughter is just weird. To fully argue like they do in private at the office would, of co…

'Over a DECK BOX?!': New neighbors get fined by their authoritarian HOA for having a delivery box on their property, sparking a heated debate over HOA futility

DEFUND HOA. This is a mantra that many homeowners and condo-dwellers have chanted in the streets of their prospective neighborhoods with great fervor for many generations. While the concept of an HOA probably means well–keeping landscaping alive, houses looking pretty, and covering the costs of amenity upkeep–the uniformity of suburban Karens can maliciously overpower even the simplest HOA.

'No, I'm sitting here currently, mate': Steadfast bus-goer foils the plan of cheapskate passengers who failed to plan ahead

A lot of hype influencers and motivational speakers are always babbling about ‘taking what’s yours' and ‘seizing opportunities’, but rarely do those book-hocking insecurity-mongerers actually know how to behave in the real world. Perhaps if your pockets are lined with daddy's millions and you've never known real consequences, ‘taking what’s yours' can pay off, but for us regular folks with blue-collar jobs riding the bus to the next city over, we know that the world doesn't work like that.

It's not often that an opportunity like this comes around. One consultant got to have the email conversation of a lifetime, and gleefully shared the results to their Twitter followers. It's hard to overstate just how advanced artificiaI inteIIigence has become in such a short period of time.

College student exposes professor's favorite for doing zero work on their group project: 'Giovanni didn't show up'

Some people are highly skilled at getting out of doing any actual work… that is, until they meet their match. We're used to seeing this dynamic play out in work environments or in certain relationship dynamics, but one of the earliest examples of this kind of flawed collaboration is the group project. Group projects don't necessarily teach you about collaboration; if anything, they teach you about how to deal with the givers and takers of this world. That is the only silver lining with a group…

To cut a long story short, this employee's VP removed them from a project in order to punish them, and what ended up happening was that as a result, the firm lost big time. But wait, it gets better. The employee actually quit, began working for the firm's competitor, and salvaged the project once the firm crumbled! Yeah, that's a lot of information to take in, so let's start at the beginning. The employee in question was working as a junior project manager for an engineering firm. They were goo…
