Scorpion Escapes Tank, Panicked Hunt Ensues

The idea of having 25 tarantulas as pets in your home might send a pure and icy shot of chills down your spine, but for some folks, tarantulas are nothing short of adorable. On top of that, this particular pet owner also had a pet scorpion. As it turns out, that pet scorpion had a bit of a moment where it was able to break free from its living quarters, and apparently had ended up posting up right where its owner was going to lay her head for sleep. Just imagining a scorpion running across your face is enough to make the idea of sleep seem like a wildly unrealistic pursuit. Like, no thank you.

Lunch Thief Gets Outed By Coworker's Pro Revenge

Man, the people in this world that are out there stealing other people's lunches are really swinging low. It sounds like this particular lunch thief wasn't going to stop with their antics until someone literally exposed them. And oh boy, did they get exposed. I would've loved to have seen the look on "Kyle's" face when he got caught. Also though, pretty uncool on the part of the company itself for not getting involved with the lunches being stolen until one of the higher up's had their own lunch jacked. For another pro revenge tale check out the time that a landlord refused to return a deposit, got taken to court, appealed it, and then lost everything.

Woman Won't Donate Vacation Days To Coworker, Asks If She's Wrong

Oh boy, the drama between coworkers is a ceaseless phenomenon. This time around we have one woman asking the moral judges of Reddit's AITA community whether or not she was in the wrong for refusing to donate her vacation days to a pregnant coworker. Based off the context provided here it really sounds like the fault falls on the company for putting their employees in a situation where there's no paid maternity leave being provided. If they'd simply provided that, then the rest of the drama could've been avoided altogether. Or, like what if the company just gave her more time off because she's pregnant and all that?
