Karen Boss Forbids Everyone From Touching Her Chair With This Insane Sign

It's not unusual for people to be protective of their possessions in a workplace setting. In a generally shared space things have a tendency to go missing, and when those things are essential for completing your required daily tasks tracking them down can be a bit rage-inducing.

Worker Cries to CEO Husband Over Unfair Treatment, He Oversteps and Now Everything is a Mess

This worker was getting a pretty hard time from her supervisor. The post lends one to believe that there were discriminatory motivations behind the supervisor's actions. However, as some commenters have pointed out, if the poster got her position in the first place because of nepotism then it wouldn't be completely unlikely that she has been getting a hard time because she is unqualified for her position.
