'Finish putting the delivery away before anything else... Cue malicious compliance': Gas station worker refuses to prep food after following boss's directions

When you've been in the workforce long enough, you know that what the boss says, goes, no matter how hard you might roll your eyes about it. In some jobs, you have bosses that make you question how they ever got the job in the first place. They're the boss who constantly does things that seem wrong in the eyes of the other employees. Sometimes it might seem like they have their priorities so backward, as was the case with this person, u/RScommitted. They shared this great story of malicious com…

'He wanted to be the first one of the day': Entitled market owner delays trucker by 4 hours

'He wanted to be the first one of the day': Entitled market owner delays trucker by 4 hours

This customer tried to get some petty payback on a company that he felt had wronged him. It didn't end well for him! Customers tend to fall into two groups when they've been wronged by an establishment. Let's say for example a customer buys a product, and it's faulty, and they try to return it. The store refuses and won't budge. The customer may get so irate that they declare, “I'm never coming back here ever again!” Here's where the two groups come into play: some of those people mean it, and…

Employee files complaint after boss is caught on video stealing her bag, HR sides with boss: 'She faced no consequences'

Employee files complaint after boss is caught on video stealing her bag, HR sides with boss: 'She faced no consequences'

This workplace debacle pretty much epitomizes the idea that HR protects the employer, not the employees. When the evidence of wrongdoing is so definitive, it's hard to imagine the human resources department coming up with a justified reason to side with the boss. However, this team managed to side with her anyway. Here, we have an employee who caught her boss stealing her bag after work hours. Furthermore, the security cameras even captured the boss leaving the office with the employee's bag an…

Tech support employee attempts to fix incompetent new hire's mistake but they get fired anyway: 'She just stared at her desktop'

Once I had a very incompetent coworker who was just the nicest person to walk the face of the earth. Seriously, it was so hard to be angry at her for not doing her job well because she was always so chipper and thoughtful. Much like Lucy in this story. One employee took to r/talesfromtechsupport to share a story about their coworker, Lucy, who began working as a HelpDesk technician at a financial company. They did password resets, fixed Windows issues, and basically did all of the tech stuff re…

‘I got 25000 miles from my email nemesis’: People share the most clever ways to get strangers who use their email addresses to stop

People with common first and last names all deal with the issue that they have to share their names with a lot of other people around the globe. There must be thousands of people with names like John Smith or Mary Williams, and that can create a lot of issues. One of those issues is presented in this funny petty revenge story. OP (original poster), for years, has been dealing with a person, probably with the same name as her, trying to use her email account. That person doesn't really have acce…

'My manager asks Karen exactly what she wants': Helicopter parent refuses to accept dorm roommates for her college-aged son

'My manager asks Karen exactly what she wants': Helicopter parent refuses to accept dorm roommates for her college-aged son

Being a helicopter parent to a toddler is one thing, but if your kid grows up and you're still acting that way, it's going to get awkward real fast. When you're raising a toddler, it makes sense to keep a close eye on them. They're whirling dervishes of destruction who can color your couch with markers one minute and climb inside the dishwasher the next. But over time, you've got to let your kids gain independence by seeing the world on their own. Too bad no one ever told this college kid's mot…

When that time comes, it will be up to you (mostly) on what terms you want to leave on. Do you want to leave on good terms, possibly even despite long-held grudges?

Researcher gets back at startup bro by helping make a better product and selling it to the competition: 'Now he's going out of business'

Researcher gets back at startup bro by helping make a better product and selling it to the competition: 'Now he's going out of business'

It's easy to make enemies with startup bros. They're not exactly the most likable bunch of individuals. This so-called “CEO” spent way more energy stirring the pot with competitors than running an actual company, and it wound up biting him on the behind in the end. First, he lost a tech competition to an academic researcher and started sending a ton of mean-spirited messages. He even crashed the researcher's Zoom lecture to spam the comments. This was the final straw for the researcher, who dec…

‘Mom, am I adopted?’: Twin sisters take genetic test only to discover they share no DNA, parents refuse to admit that one of them is adopted

Siblings should always tease one another, that is pretty much the most basic rule in the siblings' rule book. One of the common ways to tease your younger siblings is by telling them they are actually adopted, and coming up with the most elaborate story for what happened with their actual birth parents, hiding their baby pictures, and sometimes even asking your parents to go along with it. The girl in this Reddit story discovered that her life is not far from being a big adoption prank, except…

Group project members refuse to do any of the work, get none of the credit: 'It is almost 40% of the total grade'

Group projects are the absolute worst—and the absolute worst for a reason. Never up until this point in your life have you had to suffer such a demotivated group of sniveling tagalongs who want nothing more than to cling to the coattails of whatever member is willing to drag them to the next step of their education rather than actually learning something and putting in the work to get there themselves. But, it's not necessarily their fault; the system has taught them that getting to the next st…

'I opened the door and he looked at me, confused': Pizza delivery guy slides note under customer's door

'I opened the door and he looked at me, confused': Pizza delivery guy slides note under customer's door

This guy was forced to confront a pizza delivery guy … because he tried to give a note to his girlfriend right in front of his eyes! Pizza delivery is supposed to be fast and simple. You place your order on an app or by calling the restaurant, the guy drops off your pizza a half hour later, and then you watch a movie while you chow down. It's supposed to be the easy dinner option. Apparently no one told that to this pizza delivery guy, who kept insisting on seeing the woman who lived at this pl…

Ungrateful bride sends wrong text badmouthing bridesmaid, bridesmaid sabotages the bachelorette: I cancelled the reservations and didn't mention it'

Ungrateful bride sends wrong text badmouthing bridesmaid, bridesmaid sabotages the bachelorette: 'I cancelled the reservations and didn't mention it'

People who badmouth their friends over text better be careful with their phones! Otherwise, you might accidentally send a petty message to the very person you're gossiping about. Personally, I am guilty of this phenomenon. My friend jokes that I shouldn't even have a phone after all the times I have accidentally texted the wrong person. Most of these situations were harmless; I am not always gossiping. That being said, one time I was on my way to brunch with an old friend I hadn't seen in years…

'They charged me $500 for leaving a glass cup on the BBQ': 20+ HOA horror stories

When you want to be charged several hundred dollars for decorating your home as you wish, the HOA is your organization. These notorious corrupt groups seem to love handing out massive fines for tiny little violations. Home Owner's Associations , or HOAs, are groups of people who are supposed to look out for the well-being of their community. But instead, they seem to spend an awful lot of time messing around. For example, one person's HOA horror story involved them painting their house a new co…
