'I guess we're off then': Hardworking Hybrid Team Gets Payback on Micromanaging Boss After A Vicious Attack On Their Productivity

For decades, office employees have been prisoners of their cubicle, pretending to “work” whenever their boss walks by. Ever since the pandemic, a lot of jobs have realized the practicality of adjusting office scheduling and having their employees work remotely. Even though employees that work from home save costs for their company and are typically more productive, for some reason, companies are resistant to the idea. Perhaps they're obsessed with micromanagement? Managers either don't trust th…

'Instant karma!': Impatient driver gets what he deserves after harassing and tailgating a local man on a dangerous, rural highway

Road rage is a slippery slope that a lot of people have fallen victim to. For some reason, the anonymity behind the wheel gives people a false sense of power and safety, prompting them to do things and act in ways they wouldn't if they were just walking on the street. However, behind the wheel of a 2 ton iron box on wheels, people get irritable, impatient, and fired up. One man, u/iceariina , dealt with the brunt of classic road rage on the dark, midnight streets of a rural highway along his co…

'Why you living like this bro?': Trashy budget chef makes crazy elaborate recipes using nothing but motel bathroom supplies

Eating food that has touched unsanitary surfaces is revolting for some people and, as far as gross environments go, motel bathrooms are arguably the most disgusting communal areas known to man. Motel bathrooms are basically a receptacle for all human excretions and it's not always cleaned (or nuked?) appropriately. However, for one non-discriminating foodie has combined the horrors of motel bathrooms with the culinary arts, building his entire social media platform on creating elaborate recipes…

'Two cups... made me transcend the space-time continuum': Guy shares his TIFU learning moment, says it was a 'terrible discovery'

'Two cups... made me transcend the space-time continuum': Guy shares his TIFU learning moment, says it was a 'terrible discovery'

Breakfast time is not the best time for kitchen experiments, as one unfortunate dude learned the hard way. As he shared in a r/TIFU (today I f***** up) post that gained thousands of comments, he shared his brewing experience with us, so that we may absorb his wisdom. Basically, the OP did a lot of research on coffee, and kind of fell down a rabbit hole, leading to them purchasing an expensive new toy to make coffee with. But the OP clearly didn't do quite enough research, as they explain in the…

man accidentally robs his neighbor due to a food delivery order fail

'Food delivery gone wrong:' Confusion with food order accidentally turns man into a thief

In New York City, when you order food, you get the call, text, or door buzz that says your delivery guy is there. Then you just go down, take the bag, say thanks, and walk away. No other exchange is needed or wanted—it's NYC, they don't have time to say hello and comment on the weather. So when this New Yorker got the message saying his food delivery guy was at the door, he went down and did just that—grabbed his food from the guy, said thanks, and left. Turns out, however, he was very much not…

TIFU by holding a grudge for 29 years against a kid at school who called me "Carrot Boy"

'Carrot Boy' returns to his high school reunion and has a cringey carrot meltdown, fulfills his own prophecy

Well, if he wasn't going to be remembered as Carrot Boy before, he certainly is now; there's no walking it back from this one, folks. As commenters have suggested, if he had merely approached the conversation as if it was an old inside joke rather than something that he was harboring deep resentment over, he could have won his old classmates over and finally been rid of his demons in one swift stroke. Instead, the monkey's paw has curled—and the prophecy comes to pass. He is now, and forever wi…

'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. We humans are so quick to judge others, consciously and subconsciously, based on minuscule am…

'You're crazy': Entitled Boomer upset neighborhood children won't shovel his drive in -4 degree freezing temperatures, gets roasted

Back in his day, kids used to walk to school uphill both ways — backward, with their legs tied together and while balancing a razor-sharp scimitar atop their head. Apparently, these entrepreneurial youths also used to knock on people's doors during blizzards and sub-zero temperatures in order to offer their shoveling services for a fiver… Next, they'll be telling us that Minecraft is evidence that the children yearn for the mines . It might be frightfully cold out, but that didn't stop this ent…

'I read the book and I'm still gay': Man recalls how he accidentally came out to his ultra conservative college roommates via voicemail from the bookstore

The 90's was such a wild time. Everyone had an answering machine and voicemails were recorded then straight up broadcast in your home, spouting your business out loud to everyone within earshot and that was just a normal, accepted thing. An answering machine wouldn't be a problem if you lived alone, but the moment you live with other people, you share your voicemail (on your land line of course). There's no privacy there. One man, who lived in a big house of dudes when he was a college freshman…

'He wanted all the smoke': Pyrotechnic pooch grabs a lit firework, terrorizing the family party the threatening the whole neighborhood

Everybody loves fireworks with the exception of dogs. Most of the time, when there is a firework show within a 25 mile radius of a dog's house, they'll hide in fear under the bed or seek their owner's arms to cower from the noisy blasts. Chihuahua's however, are not like other dogs. One tiny dastardly doggo was so fearless that he accidentally terrorized his entire family when mistakenly picking up a sparking fountain firework, thinking it was his new chew toy.
