'Would you get off your phone and help me with this!': Entitled shopper mistakes woman for employee, makes her assist him anyway until actual worker comes to help

Have you ever experienced the awkward situation of accidentally mistaking a random customer for an employee? Maybe they were wearing a similar color to the actual employees, or maybe they just looked like they could work there. It's an awkward experience for everyone, but typically, you would politely apologize for the mistake, and then both of you would return to whatever it was you were doing. But not in this case. An entitled Boomer mistook a woman in Staples for an employee (scroll down bel…

'[She] berated a waitress over the quality of the brie pastry puffs': 15+ Stuck-up people who only care about money

Meeting someone from another tax bracket can be a real eye-opener. If you've ever had a work lunch with some higher-ups, or went on a trip with a wealthy friend and their family, you might know the feeling. The things you think are expensive are just regular things to them. The things you can't afford are things that they purchase without batting an eye. Have you ever gone shopping with someone who casually drops tens of thousands of dollars on clothing and golf clubs? It's eye-opening, to say…

When you're legally and financially tied to another person to the point where everything would be evenly split should the relationship end, you really have no business making excessively extravagant purchases without the both of you being on the same page. The acceptability of these slides further when that thing has no bearing on, or positive effect on, advancing your lives or livelihood together. Look I'm not going to be one of those people who starts talking about how collecting “pictures pr…

Coworker gets fired after calling in sick to audition for The Bachelor: 'Don't ever do anything that would embarrass [our] image'

Every employee is entitled to use their set number of sick days for whatever reason they see fit, even if that reason is to audition for a very popular reality TV show. Sure, this is not exactly a morally justifiable excuse for calling in sick, but it is an iconic excuse. This employee recounted how their coworker not only called in sick to audition for The Bachelor but also how she didn't exactly cover it up very well. Their president's one big rule at the company was never to embarrass the or…

Manager cancels employee's leave while they're already away on vacation: 'I'm [canceling] your vacation'

Taking time off work is probably just as important as the work itself. Being able to step away, take a break, and come back with a new perspective will likely benefit your work—besides, you've earned it. Although, of course, what you'll often find happens is that the freedom and relaxation your vacation offers you makes returning to work even more difficult than it already is on a normal Monday. Being denied the chance to take leave can mean missing out on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, fami…

Employees share hilarious stories of new hires who were fired on the first day: 'Kid lied about his experience as a foreman and drove a skid into the side of the house we were working on'

Getting a new hire at your job is always exciting. It's nice to have a fresh perspective, someone to help with the workload, and possibly a new work bestie. Unless they are a terrible employee, then it's not exciting to get a new hire. Sometimes, employees are onboarded, make it to the 90-day review period, and are let go. Or sometimes they decide that the company wasn't what they were looking for and leave on their own. That's why you can't get yourself super invested in a new coworker beca...

Top confessions and secrets overheard by ride app drivers: 'A couple [...] broke up in the backseat'

Ride app drivers seem to have seen and heard far more on the job than they would like to have experienced. On the one hand, you could argue that it comes with the territory. However, on the other, you have to wonder why customers can't just keep quiet during their rides. These taxi, Uber, and Lyft drivers have seen it all, from breakups happening right there in the backseat to major life confessions to full-on cheating. In theory, you would think that these guys are getting the full range of th…

'You know who would love this?': Woman directs pushy men towards her attention-seeking high school friend

Getting hit on is a part of daily life for many people. But obviously, you aren't going to want to date most of the strangers who are hitting on you in public: they're notoriously impolite about this. You quickly gain a sixth sense about these things. That man who's screaming from his balcony about how he'll treat you right… is not going to be the Prince Charming he believes himself to be.

Woman cuts Wifi after getting kicked out so entitled roommate's best friend can move in: 'I guess karma really does exist'

It's difficult to avoid getting petty when you're leaving on bad terms with a roommate. Believe me, I have been there. You want to stuff the curtain rods with prawns. You want to sabotage their AC. You want to do all the things to make this person know they should never have tried to mess with you. That being said, the mature grown adult within you stops you from doing anything unforgivable. Instead, we just move on and peacefully coexist with your soon-to-be ex-roommate despite the urge to ena…

'You used me for my money': Woman sues her brother after he fails to pay her back for a car she bought him, family sides with brother, resulting in her cutting off all contact

Never ever give anyone a loan. No matter how close you are to them or how sincerely they promise to pay you back, giving someone money and then expecting them to pay it back can only end in a disaster. They are probably not going to be very thrilled to pay you back the money, which in the least will harm your relationship, or can even create an entire dispute that will be hard to recover from. The family in this Reddit story has made this exact mistake. After getting a nice bonus from work, OP'…

'Success is my revenge': Grocery store free sampler gets back at their grumpiest coworker

You'd think being the grocery store employee who hands out free samples of food would be a pretty sweet job. No retail job is safe from the crazy customers of the world. But there are few things more universally adored than free food. If you go to certain grocery stores on weekends or at certain hours, some provide free samples all over the store. You can walk between the aisles and sample what are usually the weirdest foods you can think of. I've sampled a strange brownie-flavored dessert humm…
