'This is ok isn't it': Job seekers hilarious interview screw up sparks a discussion that goes 'off the rails'

The job interview process is a tricky one. So much of it depends on the charade of weird social norms that it's really more of a performing art piece than an adequate way of vetting the performance of a candidate. There's so much research indicating that those who come across to recruiters as ‘confidant’ are more likely to be selected for a role, regardless of their actual experience or qualifications.

For American Servers - what bulls would stop today if you didn't work for tips? As in, you're paid a competitive living wage by your employer. What are you no longer putting up with from diners/customers?

'I'd probably start refusing service to all the morons that come out to eat and act all entitled': Waiters dish on what would change drastically if restaurant tipping suddenly ended

While eating at restaurants, do you tip your waitstaff some of the time, all the time, or never? While the standards differ between countries and states, in America, tipping is just the way of life. Most waiters have to survive off tips, and they can rake in the cash if they get a busy shift full of generous diners. But one person had a question for the Redditors of r/TalesFromYourServer: “For American Servers - what bulls*** would stop today if you didn't work for tips? As in, you're paid a co…

'Well he didn't cheat on ME' : Selfish Daughter Denies Her Mother Empathy When Her Dad’s Cheating Gets Another Woman Pregnant, Leading To Family Drama and No Contact

'Well he didn't cheat on ME' : Selfish Daughter Denies Her Mother Empathy When Her Dad’s Cheating Gets Another Woman Pregnant, Leading To Family Drama and No Contact

One might think that when one of your parents gets cheated on by the other, resulting in a soon-to-be new brother or sister, you might not exactly be over the moon. At the very least, you might think that one would carry some empathy for the parent who was suffering, not the one who lied about their infidelity and then oops, got another woman pregnant. Sigh… I don't know if it's a generational thing, or if we were just as self-centered back in the day, but this is unacceptable behavior and says…

Insane power-tripping manager reprimands and suspends workers for no reason, gets fired

'We were all suspended': Insane power-tripping manager reprimands and suspends all workers for no reason, gets fired

Some people just shouldn't have a single shred of power over other people… When these idiots find themselves with any semblance of authority or control, they wield it with an iron fist of furious stupidity.

Now, the manager, “Bob,” absolutely bears the brunt of t…

Update: 'Now comes the revenge': Owners cheat analyst of $70k in payments, so he keeps their $1.8M

There is no end to the greed of some people; without a written obligation to hold them in check, they will go to any length necessary to screw over everyone else and gain what they see as an upper hand. These psychopathic, narcissistic parasites are a blight on society — running unchecked due to loopholes and lack of consequence.

Twitter Thread Theorizes a Delightful 'Muppets' Version of 'Apocalypse Now'
