College student exposes professor's favorite for doing zero work on their group project: 'Giovanni didn't show up'

College student exposes professor's favorite for doing zero work on their group project: 'Giovanni didn't show up'

Some people are highly skilled at getting out of doing any actual work… that is, until they meet their match. We're used to seeing this dynamic play out in work environments or in certain relationship dynamics, but one of the earliest examples of this kind of flawed collaboration is the group project. Group projects don't necessarily teach you about collaboration; if anything, they teach you about how to deal with the givers and takers of this world. That is the only silver lining with a group…

Vindictive housemate terminates lease with no warning, other resident complies but takes the fridge with her

Entitled housemate terminates lease with no warning, other resident complies but takes the fridge with her

There are a few universal rules of etiquette that come with shared living. Choosing to terminate a lease with no warning is certainly not following those guidelines. Usually, the common problems with roommates involve their cleanliness, their noise levels, the amount of time they spend in the shower, etc. All of those issues are valid ones, but we've seen them all before. Rarely do you come across a housemate with so much audacity that she feels she is in the right to talk to the landlord behin…

Being organized with your schedule is key to running your own business. You can't double-book yourself and, if you want to be successful, you shouldn't under-book yourself. You must find that scheduling balance… Which is easier said than done.

'You're so lucky you don't care what people think about you': 20+ backhanded compliments that left people shook

In life, you're bound to get compliments and critiques, but every so often you receive a comment that is a frustrating mix of both. Usually, when this kind of thing happens to me, I am too shocked to do anything productive about it. My brain is still processing what was just said, so no part of me has the mental capacity to fabricate a witty comeback. By the time I have come up with something to say in return, the conversation has been over for a long time. At that point, I am probably in the s…

‘There were dolls staring at us from the window’: Realtors share the most bizarre reasons why potential buyers decided not to buy a house

If you are ever so fortunate to be in a position where you are able to buy a house, the house you buy must be perfect for you, or at least has to have the potential of becoming perfect. You spent so much hard-earned money on this property, you want to look at it with pride, not disappointment. That is why it is unsurprising to learn that many buyers back out of buying a house even for the smallest of reasons. That being said, there are many other times when the reasons are downright ridiculous,…

‘They left me all alone’: New hire abandoned during rush hour, then gets blamed by management for low sales

Being the newest employee is never easy. There is so much to learn and you constantly feel like you have to prove yourself with every step you take. The one thing that can make that experience a little bit more tolerable is the people you work with and the way they help you settle in. If those people are not there for you the way they should be, it makes the onboarding a lot more difficult. The employee in this Reddit story did not have the easy onboarding he wished for.

Hotel worker fired for using multiple guests' credit card information: '[His] manager just exploded in anger'

Hotel worker fired for using multiple guests' credit card information: '[His] manager just exploded in anger'

This employee's extracurricular activities were not a good look for the hotel's reputation. What's particularly funny about this story of an unprofessional employee getting justly fired is that it wasn't a coworker or manager who figured out what he was doing. In fact, it was another front desk agent at a totally different hotel. This agent was contacted by the bad employee, who was trying to book a 20-day stay using someone else's credit card information. The agent started to sense that someth…

Manager urges undervalued employee who was laid off to view termination as a 'learning opportunity' and instructs him to train new hire

Nothing in the business sector is ‘personal’, everyone is interchangeable, and the entire industry runs like one large corporate machine. Securing the flow of funds is of the utmost significance for those in positions of authority. In order to succeed in the business world, one must be prepared to give up everything or anybody who stands in the way of success. Here's the account of a Fortune 500 firm employee who was left speechless. The Original Poster (OP) has dedicated the last six years of…

'Enjoy your ticket': Irresponsible driver yells at cautious driver for slowing down to let an ambulance pass, then gets a hefty speeding ticket as payback

People with road rage should not be allowed to be behind the wheel. There is no reason that a person who cannot control their anger should be in a position where they could endanger so many people's lives. Unfortunately, unless they are caught violating some kind of rule, they get to continue in their rageful ways. One thing we do get out of road rage is funny petty revenge stories. This story was shared by a guy on Reddit who had to deal with a very irresponsible driver. The poster (OP) was mi…

'I want to sit there, so can you move?': Karen and Kevin demand for bus passenger to move for the extra leg room

We all know that bus people are way worse than plane and train people. Sure, there are always exceptions, and sometimes you end up on a plane next to someone who is acting like this is a bus. However, for the most part, bus people refuse to make room for other passengers even if the vehicle is clearly full. Bus people also love to talk on the phone for long stretches of time, as if there is no one else around. They love snacking on smelly food and not cleaning up after themselves. And they love…

Teacher Gets Epic Payback on Group of Slackers During Senior Ditch Day

This epic mode of payback has people divided over whether or not this teacher is a brilliant mastermind or entirely out-of-line. Truth be told, it's a very tough call. On the one hand, we love when students who think they can get away with manipulating their teachers get their well-deserved comeuppance. On the other, it's clear from this teacher's first-person account of the whole debacle that they got a lot of joy out of radically affecting the future of these kids, particularly when it came t…
