'I let him off easy with an F in the class': Professor regrades student's paper after they 'felt strongly they deserved a better grade'

'I do not want to work for someone like you': Job candidate walks out mid-interview after boss shouts at another employee

'I do not want to work for someone like you': Job candidate walks out mid-interview after boss shouts at another employee

Sometimes, it's hard to tell as an interview candidate if you're potentially stepping into a toxic work environment. People tend to present the most performative versions of themselves when they're interviewing someone. Everyone seems to be extra smiley and people only seem to be talking in euphemisms. Direct answers to direct questions are hard to come by during the interview process unless you force their hand. And because everyone's being the best versions of themselves, it can be difficult…

Creating a sign shouldn't be this difficult. We can't all be sign experts! And sometimes you need a quick sign ASAP. So you scribble one out with a marker, and carry on with your day.

People captured photos of these signs found out in the wild. Some say these posters and flyers are still up today, haunting the walls…

Regardless of what the purpose of the loophole is, there is a special kind of satisfaction that comes with discovering one. It's like discovering a secret that you and only you can benefit from for the time being.

'Teacher [tries to ruin] Senior Skip Day': Teacher wants to fail students if they don't show up for test, students get even after a round of golf

That teacher who wouldn't let students have their moment of freedom. In this case, that moment of freedom was the Senior Skip Day tradition.

'Force me to do Karaoke?': Non-singer pressured to perform at show-off's karaoke party, cue malicious compliance

'Force me to do Karaoke?': Non-singer pressured to perform at show-off's karaoke party, cue malicious compliance

Karaoke is not for everyone, and it's ten times worse when you have an actual good singer present. We all know why that is. They hog the microphone, they take it too seriously, they pick obscure songs (probably musical theater), and belt crazy notes that don't actually sound as good as they think. In short, karaoke is only fun when everyone in the group is on the same page about what this is. You can either have a room full of show-offs and legitimate singers, or you can have a room full of non…

'That's my job': Interview candidate calls company, accidentally speaks to the employee she might replace, employee left aghast

This job candidate thought it was a good idea to call up the company she was interviewing for, until she realized she made a huge mistake. That's because the marketing assistant who answered the phone just so happened to be the very person the Redditor would be replacing if she were to get the position. It gets worse…. the current employee had absolutely no idea she was being replaced at all. Talk about a shady boss and a major red flag for the interview candidate! If this story serves a purpos…

20+ Misleading packaging and items that overpromised and failed to deliver

Managing people's expectations is one of the most important parts of any communication around service delivery. The last thing you want to do is overpromise and then not deliver on the expectations that you have set for yourself. Underdelivering on expectations will always end up with people being disappointed—regardless of if it's a business or personal relationship. It's far easier to set realistic expectations in the first place and then win them over when you exceed that just-average level…
