Indignant interviewer turns on a new recruit who didn't even want the job in the first place: 'Like they weren't the ones who contacted YOU'

When you're applying for jobs, usually the hiring pipeline is pretty straightforward: You apply, they interview you, and then you're hired! However, in the era of online headhunters and recruitment sites, things can get a little topsy-turvy in the hiring department, especially when recruiters have no idea what they're doing.

‘I stuffed trash through their mail slot’: Man sends neighboring students a message by stuffing their entrance with trash following neighborly dispute

Having noisy neighbors is bad enough, but it is even worse when those noisy neighbors are college students. The noise of college parties only, especially when you are trying to sleep, could probably get you to move out in a matter of days. Plus, trying to get those kids to stop is even harder to deal with, so you would have to suffer in silence until it is late enough to call the police. It doesn't just end in loud parties. In this Reddit story, a man who lives in a mostly student area shared a…

'Time to jump ship': After his restaurant manager quits, business owner baffles his servers with an out-of-pocket request

Like the ecosystem of a live petri dish, there is a delicate balance of growth and decay in a restaurant. Servers, bartenders, line cookers, and managers all exist in equilibrium and when one player falls off the board, the whole system collapses. That much is clear in our next story– After a restaurant manager quit, the entire restaurant's social biome started to crumble.

‘Well, you asked for it’: Professor demands blind student stick to assignment guidelines without consideration for their disability, student complies by turning in a black piece of paper

Professors in college can be divided into two personality groups. Either they couldn't care less about college or the class they are teaching, constantly missing classes and passing everyone on their test. Or, they are extremely strict and tough, with hardly any consideration for their students. Now, even without these professors, college is hard enough, so imagine having to go through college with the latter professors, while also being blind. This Reddit story was written by a Classroom Techn…

Gymgoer makes enemies by cutting the line and hogging equipment, cue petty payback: ‘My blood is boiling just from the principle of it’

There is nothing quite like an obnoxious person at the gym. On some days, they're just interrupting your workout and it's minor enough for you to shrug it off. However, sometimes the behavior is so egregious that it entirely ruins your day. It could be the way that they're hogging the equipment. It could be

'I made sure we had no more room': Flight attendant revokes frequent flyer's upgrade by upgrading 5 more passengers after boss's demands

There are a few general rules to be aware of as a self-sufficient adult prepared to take on the world. First is that you should never, ever irritate the person working at the front desk. This covers lodging facilities, dining establishments, nightclubs, the grocery store, and—above all—the representative handling your airline seat. The story that follows is an account of a resourceful small airline representative. At that point, having worked in the field for years, OP was acquainted with a few…

'You break it, you pay': Customer demands post office replace her key after she breaks it, employee refuses to give in to her demands

Did you ever break something in a store and the employees demanded that you pay for it? There used to be a time when every store had those big 'You break it, you buy it' signs, and it was terrifying trying to walk through the aisles without touching anything in fear it would break. I never broke something in a store and then had to pay for it, which makes me wonder if those stores actually enforce this rule or if they simply pity whoever broke an item and just let it go. This post office worker…

Special requests are rarely taken seriously. When you're getting a haircut, asking for menu substitutions at the restaurant, or when you're begging the DJ to play your favorite song, it seems like you're talking to a brick wall. However, if you're a micromanaging boss with a particularly petty employee, you sometimes get exactly what you asked for…

22 Time-Tested Tech Devices That Are 'Obsolete' But Still Surprisingly Useful

Back in Magellan's days, there was a tech device for everything. A sundial could tell you the time, a compass could help you get to where you're going, and an abacus could help you solve algebraic math problems. Imagine telling a 16th-century peasant that a pocket-sized, shining rectangular device could do all of that (and more), while resting in the palm of your hand– Mind-blowing!

'I'm outta here...': Web developer leaves company high and dry after upper management shut down his concerns regarding launch of new product, company crumbles

The business world is not always kind. You are but a small component in this game. You should never feel too comfortable when you finally 'land' that job you believed would be the culmination of your desire since everyone can be replaced. What they fail to mention, though, is that occasionally—just occasionally—one cog is what keeps the entire empire afloat; without it, everything crumbles down.

'We were on a break!': 15 newly single people share their ex's version of the breakup

Everyone wonders what their ex is saying about them to their group of friends, so it's not uncommon to imagine what those conversations might sound like. Sometimes, your ex was so “in the wrong” that it will take a tremendous amount of creativity to fabricate another reason why things fell apart. Other times, the reasons behind the split remained nuanced, and both parties may still have wildly different perspectives years after all the drama went down. These newly single folks shared what they…

'You reap what you sow': Resident trashes neighbor's garden, neighbor returns the favor with an upgrade, planting bamboo to overrun their property

We look forward to the time when we can afford to live alone. At last, we have space, privacy, and a plethora of other wonderful amenities that we wouldn't have believed possible in our twenties. But as we usually emphasize here, maintaining a cordial relationship with your neighbors is crucial. Lousy neighbors have the power to either make or break an apartment complex experience. However, what would happen if your neighbor considered your garden to be their own private dump? Is it possible to…
