'I should get a raise, not a pay cut': Boss convinces ex-employee to reclaim her position after they fail to find a replacement, only to later reveal that her paycheck will be less than before

'I should get a raise, not a pay cut': Boss convinces ex-employee to reclaim her position after they fail to find a replacement, only to later reveal that her paycheck will be less than before

Finding the perfect job is almost an impossible task, but we all go on this impossible pursuit to find the most perfect place of work. For one to actually have the perfect job, there is probably a long list of criteria that the job has to have for it to be the exact right fit - it could depend on location, salary, coworkers, managers, job title, and yes, even the job itself. A place that ticks all of these criteria and probably a lot more is hard to come by… That is why when it comes to a workp…

‘You’re obviously not the right person for the job': Hiring manager demands job candidate leave interview after they ask manager for contact information of former employees

‘You’re obviously not the right person for the job': Hiring manager demands job candidate leave interview after they ask manager for contact information of former employees

The line between being a smart and impressive job candidate and being perceived as an entitled person who is hard to work with is very blurred. As a job candidate, you are expected to ask the right questions at the right time, and anything other than that can ruin your chances of securing the job, something that unfortunately happens to a lot of people. When I read the Reddit story down below, I initially didn't think that the questions the job candidate was asking HR were inappropriate and eve…

'HOA wants me to build a shorter fence? Got it!': Dude forced to uninstall 8 foot fence, maliciously complies by building shorter fence on top of brick wall

For every nosy neighbor, there's the one whose clever hijinks you can't help but admire. Here, we have a particularly private resident who did not enjoy the slim possibility of Peeping Toms getting a closer look at his backyard. Naturally, he decided that the best way to combat the new neighbors moving in next door was to install a tall fence to keep them out. Well, apparently, an eight-foot fence was too high for the local HOA to permit, so they tried to throw a ton of fees his way. That's whe…

'Old lady putting a plate full of chicken wings in her purse': All You Can Eat Buffet servers share their craziest customer stories

'Old lady putting a plate full of chicken wings in her purse': All You Can Eat Buffet servers share their craziest customer stories

Anyone who has frequented an All You Can Eat Buffet establishment knows that things can get out of hand really quickly. Customers stay far too long, they overeat, they get sick, they eat more, and servers are left to clean up after everyone. It feel like a modern version of Roman Empire mayhem. Sure, it sounds lavish and over-the-top in theory, but in practice, it's all borderline disgusting. When I was in college, we had an All You Can Eat sushi place that once a year, had a Special Discount d…

Karen throws tantrum after local newspaper publishes article about her: 'She tells me I have absolutely no right!'

This Karen needs to check herself because she's not that big of a deal. Imagine your local newspaper publishes an article that, in passing, lists the new board members of the local school. Now imagine that one of those board members, the Karen in question, throws a fit because she feels that she has been wronged. Why, you may ask? Well, apparently, she feels that she needed permission to have her name mentioned in passing like that! Of course, she didn't need permission. She's holding an electe…

New boss enforces unnecessary rules about submitting expenses, team maliciously complies: 'OK boss, you'll get your paperwork in spades'

Whatever happened to “if it ain't broke, don't fix it?” If you're ever in a position where you are joining a company and leading a team that already is.a well-run machine, consider not enforcing your personal way of doing things onto everyone else. Unless the team genuinely agrees with your ideas to change the process, the only person who is really benefitting from this change is you. That is not a good enough reason to uphold the way a team does things. You have to adjust to their rhythm just…

Airbnb guest wrongly labeled homeless and denied entry to the building based only on appearance

Safety should always come first, and it should be approached with extreme caution. Having said that, how would you respond if you were excluded from your apartment complex just for having a ‘different look’?

The story below is an account of a startled Airbnb guest. The original poster (OP) and his friend had rented…

The US is not great when it comes to the latter, and many American citizens daily worry about their health because they simply cannot afford to go to a doctor, probably like the p…

'Reschedule your vacation': Boss rejects employee's previously approved PTO, using marital status and lack of a family as an excuse

Some bosses think that they have certain rights and privileges that they simply do not possess. This employee was entitled to their PTO time, they submitted their request months in advance, and their request was approved. Everything was good to go, flights were booked, and a much-needed vacation was planned. That is, until the boss decided last minute that he could reject those plans and go back on his word, all so another coworker could take off that same week. We understand losing two employe…

Employee files complaint after boss is caught on video stealing her bag, HR sides with boss: 'She faced no consequences'

This workplace debacle pretty much epitomizes the idea that HR protects the employer, not the employees.

Furthermore, the security cameras even captured the boss leaving the office with the employee's bag an…
