‘While you're under my roof, you'll do what I say': College student lands herself a curfew after waking up sister's crying newborn, family picks sides, leaving college student to whine alone

Ah, to be a teenager and resist house rules… we've all been there. One college student named Mia moved in with her sister after attending a university that was closer to where she lived. Mia was allowed to live with her sister under one condition… don't mess with the baby's bedtime. She could come home as late as she wanted, as long as she didn't make any noise. Alas, Mia was young, inconsiderate, and entitled, leading to a big family dispute. She would go out partying, and come home, make a to…

‘They fired me without even telling me’: Woman gets fired while on maternity leave, finds out about it from coworker who has been informed she quit

It can be alarming to think that some employers have no issue with firing employees while they are on maternity leave. Even though most countries have laws against exactly that, unfortunately, it still happens to a lot of employees. Which is exactly what happened to the woman in this Reddit story (OP, original poster). A few months after going on maternity leave, she contacts her boss to talk about her return to her job, with accommodation to her now being a new mother. Her boss probably didn't…

‘A little motherly malicious compliance never hurt anyone': New mom gets back at relentless MIL who keeps waking up the baby during nap time

There are many new routines you have to get used to when you have a new baby in your life. Your sleeping schedule, eating, traveling, working, and, well, everything.

New parents are made aware of this these days and know that they are making a life-altering decision by having a kid. And mothers who were never warned about this and had to figure it out as they…

'I'd never let her forget it': Student's family eats their school project

This is the newest version of “My dog ate my homework.” Apparently for one student, their excuse is that their project got eaten by their family! At some point while you were in high school, you probably had to do this assignment for your health class. Students often have to care for a fake baby as if it's a real baby. The fake baby can be an egg, a bag of flour, or, if you live in a wealthy school district, an electronic baby that cries throughout the day at random intervals. The project often…

'Unleash your inner lawsuit': Man gets promptly fired after telling management that his girlfriend is pregnant, capturing the entire lawsuit-worthy Zoom call on video

There are a lot of things in life that are unethical, but not technically illegal. For example, passing gas in an elevator just before getting off at your floor is disgusting, but not actually a crime. Similarly, when people sing so loud at a concert they overpower the sound of the actual band playing (I'm looking at you, Swifties), that's not technically illegal either. However, there are a few instances where illegality and wrongful behavior come together...

She drops the bombshell that she's expecting, and then, in an attempt at a toast, she calls out her sister for being "bigger in size and heart." Not cool.

'That child has been screaming for 40 minutes!': Kevin has screaming match with baby on flight, causes everyone to get deplaned

Being stuck on a plane with a screaming baby is certainly headache-inducing, but it is never reason enough to throw your own tantrum. Babies get a free pass when it comes to sobbing uncontrollably because most of the time, they have no idea what's even happening. Grown men, on the other hand, do not get to make everyone's flight experience a complex mess and a half. But that's exactly what this Kevin did in this viral video . You can even see the passenger seated next to him, who appears to be…

Parents work so hard to put food on the table, keep their kids wearing nice clothes, drive them to sports practices, and more. Children have no idea how much effort their parents put into raising them, so they don't always say thank you. For most of us, though, we grow up and realize all the sacrifi…
