Times People Said "Screw This" And Noped On Out

There are moments in our lives when, despite everyone's best efforts to keep us around, the benefits clearly don't outweigh the risks, and we have that freeing moment when we realize we can just leave. It can be a bad job or sketchy situation. Sometimes it just take a "screw this, I'm out" moment for us to notice that it's probably a better idea to set out for greener pastures.

CEO Doesn't Understand What Departments Do, Karen Catastrophe Ensues

Nothing is more infuriating than dealing with someone who is higher up on the chain of command that makes decisions without having the necessary understanding of the company, to execute successfully. By the sound of it, this CEO took an otherwise functional structure and ruined it with a Karen who had no idea what she was doing. The CEO went so far as to put Karen in charge of the people that actually knew what to do. Oh, no.

Work Memes to Hide from the Boss

Work. We need to do it to not be hungry and cold, but other than that it's missing some benefits. Depending on their job, most people would rather just sit and be bored. And everyone's attitude at work is a strange combination of trying to do as little as possible while blaming everyone around them for doing as little as possible. It can get rough. At least there are work memes to blow off work steams.

Twitter Thread: Star Trek and the Inhumanity of Gig Economies

Twitter user _danilo uses an example from Star Trek to explain some of the dangers of having an industry that lacks face-to-face interaction with its own workers. It's scary enough to imagine your job being done by a cold, calculating robot, but what if your boss's job was done by a cold, calculating robot? For something with more Star Trek fun and less technocratic dread, here's an awesome Tumblr post on how hard humans go in Star Trek.

Unprofessional "Not My Job" Moments of Failure

Most of us will do whatever it takes to avoid doing our actual jobs. For some, it's almost a challenge to see how much we can get away with not doing. Our drive to not do any actual work leads to some impressive "not my job" moments of professional ineptitude. Toilets get installed sideways, billboards get crammed with typos, and things go awry in these "not my job" moments of professional failure.
