'I told the head of HR that no one cares about his survey': Employee ruins his chance at a promotion by accidentally badmouthing company survey to HR's face

'I told the head of HR that no one cares about his survey': Employee ruins his chance at a promotion by accidentally badmouthing company survey to HR's face

We all know that company surveys rarely result in any meaningful change, but perhaps it's a good idea not to say that directly to the head of HR. In fairness, this employee did not realize that the strange man in the suit whom he had never seen before was technically the head of the Human Resources department. This alone is a tell-tale sign that this company was a toxic work environment. It's not the employee's fault if the head of HR is so mysterious and unknowable that no one recognizes his p…

'[They] regret moving out': Freeloading family gets a taste of the real world after refusing to pitch in for groceries and bills

The only reason any of us are enduring our workday for the sake of a measly paycheck is because life is expensive. Watching our bills, groceries, car payments, and rent go up every month isn't exactly an encouraging reality, but only a deluded person would think that the luxuries in life (like a full fridge and gas in your car) would come without a price tag–but then again...

'He escaped consequences': 10+ court fails where lawyers found loopholes and judges threw out the cases

'He escaped consequences': 10+ court fails where lawyers found loopholes and judges threw out the cases

Most lawyers will tell you not to count on niche loopholes to get you out of trouble. However, every so often these lawyers worked on a case where the details and specifics were vague enough to get a case thrown out. These are obviously few and far between, but one would imagine that discovering said loopholes might make one feel like the next Elle Woods. As we know, she was able to protect Brooke Windham in the end because of a hole in Chutney's perm story. Whatever it takes to protect your cl…

‘She was powerless against us’: Flatmates force entitled roommate to move out by shutting down the electricity whenever she is home

‘She was powerless against us’: Flatmates force entitled roommate to move out by shutting down the electricity whenever she is home

There are many ways to calmly deal with an annoying roommate. What most people do, presumable, is just try and ignore that roommate as much as they can, and live as separately as they can. If that does not work, some people might try and work out their issues with their roommates, but knowing people, that is hardly ever the case. The last option is to find a way to get the roommate to move out, without causing much of a scene, and this Reddit story is the perfect example of such an option. This…

Tenant increased apartment value by tending to neglected garden, landlord attempts to ‘kick’ tenant out to profit from the fruits of his labor

Landlords could end up being your best friend or, in contrast, your biggest enemy. However, how would you respond if your landlord attempted to profit from the fruits of your labor? Would you silently submit or fight for what's right? The story that follows is the story of a clever tenant. After residing in his apartment for some time, the Original Poster (OP) decided to remodel his yard in an effort to make his house feel more like a home. The garden was finally finished, with stunning foliage…

Boss takes server's tips for himself under claims he hasn't 'earned them', servers builds a case to report boss: 'He won't get away with this'

Boss takes server's tips for himself under claims he hasn't 'earned them', servers builds a case to report boss: 'He won't get away with this'

When it comes to tipping culture, there are two types of customers: You either firmly believe that servers should be paid normally and not have to rely on tip money (and maybe because of that you don't even tip yourself, depending on where you live), or you feel for the serves who barely make enough money to exist, and probably overtip because of that. The main problem, regardless of how the customers themselves feel about tipping, is that many establishments still pay servers with the money th…

'How do you like them apples?': Band gets even with cranky old neighbor, retrieving the apples he stole, and letting them rot

'How do you like them apples?': Band gets even with cranky old neighbor, retrieving the apples he stole, and letting them rot

We love petty revenge in all forms, but we mourn the loss of perfectly ripe apples. These band members found themselves in a feud with a cranky old neighbor from a few houses down. At first, it was about the noise level of their jam sessions despite the fact that their house was far enough away and they were practicing during appropriate hours. In short, these were not selfish miscreants; they were at least trying to be respectful to the neighborhood. However, once the cranky neighbor escalated…

Entitled Karen Mom throws her own 40th birthday, then has an outburst at her husband and kids in front of guests: 'My plans put theirs to shame'

Imagine being a teenager and having your Mom shame you for not planning an adequate 40th birthday for her… This kid was 16 years old! What exactly did she expect? We understand that this lady wanted something special after always planning birthday extravaganzas for her spouse and kids. That being said, as she herself acknowledged, not everyone is good at planning parties. Therefore, if she felt that she was more capable of throwing her own 40th birthday celebration rather than handing the dutie…

Employee gets fired for taking recycled computer mouse nobody was using: 'It’s against company policy to take things from the electronics bin'

Employee gets fired for taking recycled computer mouse nobody was using: 'It’s against company policy to take things from the electronics bin'

There is absolutely no reason why this employee actually needed to be fired over this. First of all, the company policy about taking recycled supplies from the electronics bin was simply unclear and unenforced. Why suddenly enforce it now? This employee took his sister to the office and was showing her around when they came across the electronics bin. The Redditor acknowledged that most employees take leftover supplies from the bin all the time, so when his sister inquired about an unused compu…

‘Sweet sweet victory’: Housemate settles score with cheapskate roommate who refuses to pay the bills by filling up the entire house with bubbles

Sometimes the best retaliation comes from the need for playful bantering, not from anger. The story that follows is an account of a frustrated roommate. The Original Poster (OP) lives in an apartment with two housemates. Since OP and the other tenants are all students, they occasionally have to live on a tight budget. That being said, OP was more than happy to shoulder the responsibility when needed, having recognized that each tenant had a unique capacity to contribute. The tenants got along,…

Boss enforces checking emails every 24 hours even when off work, employee maliciously complies and submits OT: 'Make sure you put it on your timesheet'

Boss enforces checking emails every 24 hours even when off work, employee maliciously complies and submits OT: 'Make sure you put it on your timesheet'

You can't expect your employees to work off the clock and not call it overtime! And if you were silly enough to enforce rules such as this without being clear about OT, that's your problem! This part-time employee tested his manager's rules about checking emails every 24 hours even when off the clock. Furthermore, he often would not be scheduled for shifts for weeks at a time, yet he had to be responsive via email all the time as if he were a full-time employee. That's a whole lot of nonsense.…

Customer blames car wash for car damage, demands compensation but refuses to let employee check the security cameras: ‘I know a liar when I see one’

No one loves to admit they are at fault when they make a mistake. It's an uncomfortable feeling, and if the mistake costs money, that is even worse. But, as we are all adults, sometimes you have to own up to your mistakes and pay for what you caused. Not this customer though, he absolutely refused to admit to the damage he caused. In this Reddit story, two customers approached a car wash employee and accused the car wash of causing their cars to crash into each other. The employee, who had to d…
