There are plenty of workplace scams out there. Coworkers that are selling Tupperware, vitamin supplements, or overpriced chocolate bars to support their kid's baseball team should be avoided at all costs. Although most people learn the difference between a swindling colleague and a desperate one...

'He says it's a service animal': Homeowner won't allow friend's service dog in their home, internet is divided

What is right, what is fair, and what should you do when it comes to accommodating your friends in your own home? Sure, it's your place, and you can do whatever you'd like, but that doesn't mean others have to like you for your lack of flexibility. This goes doubly when it comes to accommodating someone in the group's disability. Still, animals are a tricky subject, and not everyone loves being around them or having them in their home. Although being a service animal should open the door for ac…

'You're a real hero bud': Petulant child customer thinks he's clever for torturing cashier, gets panned in the comments

Working retail, you get all sorts… There you are, just trying to do your job, and some jerkwad comes up thinking that they're going to get one over on you because you had the gall to work a job where you have to stand for nine hours a day making minimum wage, following the processes you've been forced to follow. And that's the problem with sharing stories online… People see it as a chance to get clout for being a victim, and think of themselves as heroes despite actually being the villains... T…

'It's obviously the spot that everyone wants': Worker with injured knee questions if they're wrong for taking the parking spot their pregnant coworker keeps requesting

This person is not going to be making many friends at their office place. Every now and again, there's a post made to r/AmItheA******, and none of the commenters can agree on who's wrong in the scenario. This is one of those tales. U/NeopolitanGuy1 sparked the debate with their story about a parking space. Every workplace has at least one “good spot,” which is usually close to the entrance. It'll be hard to get that spot, though, because it'll be taken by whichever early bird gets to the office…

'I got called into HR': Coworker accidentally reports themself to HR after stealing bait lunch from fridge

Your things are your own, and while it can be nice to share, you need to respect other people's stuff and not take things without asking. This is essentially the first lesson that we're ever taught in school, and yet, a frightful amount of people can't seem to get that one right. We're not saying that you should go around teaching people lessons; It's just not a good idea, you might actually be the one in the wrong, and there's far too much chance of you getting the facts wrong, but it's mighty…

'I'm not going to become a vegan': Woman repeatedly preaches veganism to her roommates, they confront her, she loses it

You can't expect everyone around you to do things your way! Look, there are many compromises people need to make as roommates. All parties need to agree to certain rules, like tidying up in shared spaces, doing your dishes, etc. These are all necessary conversations roommates need to have in order to coexist peacefully. Of course, roommates also need to acknowledge and recognize that people have different ways of doing things, and not everyone is going to align on everything all the time. You w…

'Without consulting anyone, I switched our tickets last minute': Dad abandons daughter on family vacation to take a 40th anniversary trip with his wife

Alright, so here's the deal. Our OP (aka the dad) did in fact change their family vacation plans the night before departure, leaving his daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids hanging. But tbh, he might be valid in this case. Our OP and his wife have been dreaming about a romantic getaway to celebrate their love for the 40th anniversary for a while. It might be the only trip they can manage for a while due to the costs. But when their daughter caught wind of it...

'He's jealous of me': Boss wife bullies her own husband at work and tells their coworkers his secrets, wonders if she's the bad guy

Working closely together with your spouse in a workplace environment presents all sorts of opportunities for possible issues and abnormal workplace relationships. There's a reason why many organizations outright forbid known couples from remaining in the same workgroup, choosing to prevent the chance of these problems altogether by moving one of them to a different part of the company. Still, the last possible scenario you'd probably expect is one of the members of the couple to create problems…

'I didn't mean to say it out loud, but COME ON': Teenager gets in trouble for honest reaction to news that her sister is pregnant again

Sometimes, we say things we absolutely shouldn't but we are human, and we just can't help ourselves. In a few of these instances, you may be able to argue your way out of trouble, but if you've hurt someone's feelings (especially those of a close family member), good luck trying to talk yourself out of it. In this story , we have a teenager whose older sister has six children. Now, six is a lot, especially if you have to frequently rely on the help of your mother and sister because of all that…

'[I called] my wife a nerf herder': Husband derided for insulting wife with obscure Star Wars reference

Relationships are an ongoing affair, with constant growth and change of the individuals necessitating growth and change of the relationship itself. Of course, with the tendency for couples to establish codependency and isolate themselves from any other social interaction, often this growth and change can lead the couple in strange new directions , causing them to morph into unrecognizable amorphous symbiotes vaguely representing their former selves. Part of this involves adopting pet names for…

'Well it's mine and I got it for my stuff': Teacher calls out annoying coworker for hogging her own personal mini-fridge

When we think about the difficult lives of teachers, we often draw our attention to the annoying students they are forced to educate, but we rarely acknowledge that teachers may also have to deal with annoying coworkers just like everyone else. Having an insufferable coworker at your school has to be infuriating after a full schedule of teaching neurotic and whiny students all day. These teachers rarely get a moment of peace at their desks, and when they do, they generally need to do some lesso…

'She's deluded': Husband rudely refuses to leave the family boot dryer at home, turns out she was trying to surprise him with a new one

My major revelation from this thread is the fact that a “boot dryer” exists. I mean, it makes complete sense, but for some reason, I have never conceptualized its existence—and this is coming from a guy who wears boots and occasionally has wet boots… I could have used one of these years ago. But my ignorance regarding boot dryers is not the issue at hand here; rather, it's this family's disagreement regarding the priority of usage of theirs. This husband stood his ground when his wife began ins…
