The last thing anyone wants to end up dealing with is an employee who is only there because they have some kind of family connection. It's those family connections that can end up inviting the laziest and most entitled of folks into a company.

Woman Steals Sister's Boyfriend, Marries Him, Sibling Won't Attend Wedding

Um, this family dynamic sounds absolutely disastrous. Like, we're talking right out of one of those painful reality shows. What kind of person has the audacity to steal their sibling's partner, marry them, and then throw a temper tantrum when their sibling doesn't want to attend the wedding? What did she expect? It sounds like someone's grown very comfortable living in their own little fantasy world. Yes, a fantasy world where she's blinded by such a thick haze of self-concerned narcissism that she's completely detached herself from her moral compass.

Safety-Failures That Would Make OSHA Weep

Physical work can place us in some compromising positions. It's probably not worth it to straddle two ladders in the wind or pull some OSHA-defying boldness just so you can finish a job 20 minutes faster, but it's everyone's personal choice to risk your life for a few dollars. What really sucks is when you are aware of basic safety standards and your boss says "listen buddy, we've been storing oily rags next to the fritzy boiler for years, so quit being a pansy. Now grease up your hands and plunge them into the crusher." So here's to misguided safety failures that OSHA would disapprove of

Power-Tripping Manager Tells Employee To Not Do Their Job, Backfires Terribly

It's a wonder that some people are put into the positions of power that they are in the first place. Fortunately, the pattern seems to be consistent in that they don't last long in their roles of authority. At one point or another the incompetence ends up creating such chaos and destruction that the businesses have to let them go. It sounds like this particular manager was just biding their time until they ended up failing so hard that the only acceptable outcome would be their righteous termination.

In the case of this employee, it seems like it's a bit of a lose-lose situation based off their impossibly testy and disrespectful attitude. And then the fact that they have the audacity to issue threats at the end there. Pretty unreal. Check out more entitled people with their fantastical demands over here

"Not My Job" Moments of Occupational Ineptitude

As human beings, it's our duty to complete our jobs with the absolute minimum in mind. To some degree, we all pride ourselves on looking like we've done our jobs without making our general apathy and unprofessionalism too obvious. That said, we're not perfect and it can show in the form of "not my job" moments of dubious professionalism. But also, it's not like an upside-down stop sign is impossible to read.

Guy Complains About Utilities Bill, Claims To Not Use Water, Takes Showers

Seriously, what was this guy on about? He goes out of his way to call the collections department at his water company, and then goes on an inspired riff about how he's definitely not using water, but also managed to take showers and use the toilet. Buddy, you did yourself in on whatever money-saving scam that you were trying to carry out, right there. I just wonder what was racing through his mind when he realized (hopefully) that he was not about to get any money knocked off his water bill.
