'[He] showed up 4 hours late because he "overslept"': 25+ Workers reveal the reasons everyone at their workplace dislikes 'that one colleague'

Every workplace has at least one person who is somehow employed there, leaving everyone else baffled as to how that could’ve happened. You’ll know exactly how this feels if you’ve ever had to work with someone who doesn’t take care of their hygiene. When a coworker comes to the office and reeks, it’s hard not to take notice. Maybe it’s that one coworker who keeps biking to work on the hottest days of the year, showing up drenched in sweat. Other people seem like they just never brush their teet…

Job candidate told by hiring manager that they won't get the role despite being the most experienced candidate: 'I'm so sick of mind games from employers'

Normally, you might expect that being the best at something means that you'll be effectively the first selected, akin to it being a race, and by being simply being undisputed best, you would, of course, be the one to win. Well, that's not how races or any competitions work, and it's the reason they're held in the first place, and the prize isn't just awarded to the person who currently holds whatever record is most relevant… There are so many other factors and things that can happen on the day…

Power-tripping Karen thinks she's the boss, employee gets back at her and takes over: 'I'll get you fired and get your position'

It doesn't matter if you work in a high-powered corporate environment or a three-person company; there will always be that coworker who thinks they're in charge of you. Perhaps they were just hired before your time. Perhaps they're older. Perhaps they ate slightly senior within the company hierarchy. Still, if they're not your manager, they have absolutely no business ordering you around. We are going to call this personality Perpetua after Bridget Jones's coworker who is very much guilty of th…

Employee discovers the new hire is making more than them: 'With zero experience in this position'

While it might be tempting to wait out an impending layoff or quit rather than stomach unfair treatment or the foul nature of your egotistical boss… Without a doubt, the best time to find a new job is when you're still employed. You'll be undoubtably less stressed due to more financial stability allowing you to be more selective and find the right role. During interviews this feeling of security allows you to come across more confidently, which apart from making you more likely to get another r…

Karen customer gets a taste of her own medicine at the burger drive thru: 'Hold on a second PLEASE!'

Many entitled people walk through life thinking they're the main character of the universe without a single person calling them out on their nonsense. Sure, dealing with entitled people is a difficult endeavor. Why would you want to put yourself through that? Well, the truth of the matter is that it's better for humanity at large to knock these folks down a peg and remind them that they are in no way better than the rest of us. So with that in mind, it comes as no surprise to us that the local…

‘If you think you can find a loophole, think again’: Software developer maliciously complies with new boss’s strict 9-5 hours, team productivity tanks

Who doesn't love when a manager's strict and unnecessary rules get called out in front of senior management in the most humiliating way possible? We guess that the manager didn't love it, but clearly, everyone else on this software developer's team enjoyed this comeuppance. This manager, Dave, came waltzing in and insisted that all software developers adhere to a strict 9-5 work schedule with minimal breaks. The Redditor explained how this was not ideal for the team's productivity, given that c…

‘I haven’t gotten a raise in years': Employee discovers inexperienced new hire is offered the same salary as him, gets told to stop comparing himself to others

One of the biggest differences in the work ethics between the generation of today's young adults, and the generation of their parents, is the so-called 'commitment' to keep working in the same workplace for years upon years. Younger people, don't feel obligated to stay in the same place if it does not benefit them, and are ready to job hop as soon as a better offer comes along, creating a resume that is assembled by a collection of jobs that usually do not last more than two years. Their parent…

'I literally did everything that was written on the rules': Postal worker gets petty revenge on boss who keeps disciplining them

Would it surprise you to learn that the postal workers of the world are inclined to throw the packages around? If you’ve ever ordered something by mail, like literally even once, chances are you’ve gotten a package with some bent corners and scraped-up sides. Most companies do a pretty good job packing the products so that they can still get to you intact. They have to, because a lot of employees will sling those boxes around like they’re not full of precious cargo. If you did that job, though,…

Boss makes team work extra weekend shift, Data Analyst makes sure he's there: 'You also need to be there for the sign-off'

One of the most respected ways to lead is from the front. Of course, you may be the first one to catch an arrow or a spear to the throat—dooming everyone who was relying on your command and is now floundering, leaderless. But, if you pull it off and make it through the battle unscathed you can sure as heck bet that the troops will love you far more than they would had you been in your command tent at the back of the field. The difference here and the limitation of this anecdote is that there ar…
