People Who Worked Smarter, Not Harder

Some of the greatest innovations at work come from human laziness. It's just not a good idea to work extra hard when you can think of a way to do the same work more efficiently. That said, don't do too good of a job or your boss might find out that you don't need to work there anymore. One or two of these definitely backfired. And a few definitely weren't as smart as the person first thought.

An Imaginative Conversation On Getting Out Of Work

Who even cares if this one's fake. The imaginative conversation revolving around what one would do if their boss texted them telling them to come in, is entertaining enough. Sometimes the best course of action is to just play dumb, and act like it's the wrong number.

Unsafe Coworker Who Can't Be Bothered on Phone Gets Caught on Phone

This one seems obvious. Anyone who's worked around heavy machinery knows how important it is to be mindful of  your surroundings, yet there's still coworkers out there who can't be bothered to understand how hazardous their own working conditions are. Some coworkers just don't get it, like this Karen who didn't check her email for years. Sometimes it's customers who are a nightmare, like this lady who tried to get a free washer and didn't get her way.

Manager Doesn't Know What A Computer Is, Throws Away Forty of Them

People have a pretty abysmal knowledge of computers, but almost never so bad that they try to have them removed from their office. IT people have to be very patient when a customer's computer won't work. Sometimes people don't know what a power button is. We don't envy people who have to deal with this level of ignorance on a daily basis.
