Entitled boss furious when employee doesn't come in for work after instructing employee to stay home: 'I was joking'

Typically, when your boss tells you to do something, you do it. Even if they say not to come to work, you'll (gladly) not come to work. That's exactly what happened when this entitled boss told her employee not to come to work the next day. She was reading off everyone's schedules in person at work the day prior and then told the Original Poster (OP) not to come in, so the OP obliged, as anyone in that situation would. That is, until the next day rolled around, and her entitled boss started b...

'I can barely afford food': Pre-law intern making $14/hour gets badgered by their out-of-touch boss to buy a designer purse worth a month's salary

'If you’re going to talk a big game... be sure you can play it': Assembly line worker insists he can do the job of two workers, coworker calls his bluff

If you talk the talk, you better walk the walk. If you can't, you're in for embarrassment… and possibly even worse outcomes than that. This assembly line worker had an interesting story to tell about what happened to them and his coworker. This coworker, Richard, kept stealing the credit for his work, which is a surefire way to lower that employee's morale.

It makes you wonder why we post anything at all anymore yet people will only keep posting. As we mentioned, these absolutely in…

'Oh, people like to work late': 20+ Workplace red flags that scream, "Don't work here"

Don't accept that job until you've vetted the company well. I know it's hard not to accept the first gig that offers you a contract, but it's worth your time to spot red flags before signing on. One person mentioned another great one, which is having a lot of very young people who are running an older company. Young people are great, of course, but it signifies that the company can't retain their older workers, who probably left to find better wages . And it implies that they're hiring youngste…

'Why can't I get paid?': Boss uses rainy weather to justify delaying payment to employees

Bad bosses will come up with any excuse imaginable to justify their poor management skills. This manager messaged his employees and used the rainy weather to justify delaying payment to his employees. The Redditor's coworker was smart enough to ask why he was forced to work under these weather conditions and yet he couldn't get paid on time.

'Employees weren't happy with their wage': Department head informs employees she'd deduct their wages if she could, demands they "be mindful"

Be very very careful with anonymous surveys… you never really know if they're actually anonymous or not! In some workplaces, HR will send around anonymous surveys every now and then. They can address mundane topics, like asking if people want more employee events, and trying to take the temperature on morale. Other times these surveys are directly asking how leadership is doing, and those feel risky to answer. Even if the results come through a third-party service, it can't be that hard to figu…

Lawyer manipulates greedy commercial landlord into voiding his own contract: 'I know you were behind this'

You know, something along the lines of Alien vs. Predator, Freddy vs. Jason, or Godzilla vs. Kong , there's certainly a precedent for these kinds of crossovers and Landlord vs. Lawyer de…
