'He couldn't hire anyone willing to except such a [low] wage and boring work': Employee gets revenge after being demoted when entitled boss couldn't hire new staff

There's nothing more frustrating than working for a boss who fails to deliver on their promises. You end up putting in extra hours, only to find those promises empty and yourself shortchanged. Have you ever been in a situation where your company was short-staffed, and you were asked to take on additional responsibilities while they searched for new hires, only for those hires never to actually be hired? I have. At a previous job, the boss would frequently dismiss employees without warning, leav…

'Sleep well, dude': Man leaves loud neighbor with parting gift after long standing neighborly dispute

Your neighbors are your closest allies. They can assist with receiving packages, impart insightful information about the surrounding area, keep a watchful eye on your home, and much more. However, should misfortune find you and you are forced to live next door to a horrible person who has been a headache since the minute she arrived, do you participate in her little game of torment or do you cave into all of her absurd requests in an attempt to keep things at bay? The Original Poster (OP) recen…

‘Don’t bother coming in to work tomorrow': Employee asks manager for missing tax documents from her paycheck, manager responds by firing employee

As a child, thinking about becoming an adult and having to deal with things like taxes is genuinely terrifying. As an adult, well, it's actually still pretty terrifying. It will forever be a mystery why we don't have classes at school that teach us how to deal with these sorts of things. But somehow, we learn the ropes, and with each year we grow up we get to learn more and more about adult life. The manager in this Reddit post still has some lessons to learn. The person who wrote the post (OP)…

'He had it coming': Resident gets car towed from neighbor's driveway after parking it there for days, resulting in $3000 fines

What does one should do when a strange car all of a sudden gets parked in one's private parking? Should they look for the car's owner and get them to move it? Should they hold tight and see if the owner will simply move their car on their own? Or should they get the car towed right then and there and let the owner deal with the rest? The Redditor who wrote this petty revenge story tried a few of the ways listed above when their neighbor decided to park their car in the Redditor's driveway. OP (…

Young couple gets payback on entitled neighbor after he repeatedly trespasses property: 'I’ve honestly never seen somebody shut up so quickly'

When young couples move into a neighborhood, it's no surprise that some of the lifers in the neighborhood will roll their eyes at the “new blood.” That being said, this entitled neighbor, whom the Redditor refers to as Tim, really thought he could get away with ongoing manipulation, endless plotting and scheming, and frequent trespassing of property without any repercussions. Young folks may be new to the neighborhood, but that in no way means that they are willing to be used and played around…

20 times people discovered their partners were not bright: 'She thought the Statue of Liberty was made of plastic'

There comes a time in everyone's dating experiences when you realize that the person with whom you have been spending time is a complete and total doofus. When this happens, you have three options. First, you can give them the benefit of the doubt. You let whatever silly comment they made slide, you try to explain why they are mistaken, and you move on. Sometimes, people simply do not know things because they have yet to be exposed to them. You taught your partner something. Isn't that a produc…

'I gave your job to someone else': Employee returns from sick leave and discovers manager promoted coworker instead of her

If being an employee is a challenge, being a manager to several employees is no picnic either. Having to answer to all of their requests, being the person they turn to whenever they have any problem, and yes, even being the person they blame when things go wrong, are all difficult tasks that can really drive a person up the wall. Though the title can be tempting, you have to remember that with great power, comes great responsibility. This person who wrote this Reddit piece is just starting to r…

Petty Aunt Karen forces fully grown nephew to sit with six year olds at their family reunion: 'This is the adult's table'

Family get-togethers always bring an unnecessary amount of shade and entitlement. As you get older, you only notice it more and more and ti just becomes less and less bearable.

Nepo baby embarrasses mom at work via malicious compliance: 'Want me to interrupt you while you're talking to your boss? Ok!'

Nepotism is here to stay in this world, so we might as well enjoy the tomfoolery it can create in the workplace. While I personally would never want to work with the mother or daughter in this story, at the same time, I can applaud them for at least embracing that absolute professionalism in the workplace is kind of impossible to master. To fully pretend like the Redditor in this story is not the manager's daughter is just weird. To fully argue like they do in private at the office would, of co…

'No, I'm sitting here currently, mate': Steadfast bus-goer foils the plan of cheapskate passengers who failed to plan ahead

A lot of hype influencers and motivational speakers are always babbling about ‘taking what’s yours' and ‘seizing opportunities’, but rarely do those book-hocking insecurity-mongerers actually know how to behave in the real world. Perhaps if your pockets are lined with daddy's millions and you've never known real consequences, ‘taking what’s yours' can pay off, but for us regular folks with blue-collar jobs riding the bus to the next city over, we know that the world doesn't work like that.
