Senior Network Engineers Fail To Follow Rule Zero, Company Wastes Thousands Of Dollars

Man, this is one of those outrageous tech support tales that almost seem too full of cluelessness to be real life. We have what seems to actually be a perfectly reasonable CEO who ends up being strung along for an ungodly long amount of time, because multiple senior network engineers are unable to put their heads together to resolve a rudimentary tech issue. The thing about taking video calls is if you want folks to be able to see/hear you, you've got to allow for those functions to run on your phone. You'd think this would be common sense, but hey, some tidbits of common knowledge are lost on folks. At least the matter was resolved.

Products That Are Too Marked Up For Their Own Good

Just about everything is a little bit of a racket. Hell, if everything was sold at cost, there'd be no reason for anyone to run a business. It's when businesses use brand sway and deceitful practices to drive insane markups that things start to seem unfair and hairy. Even if you are spending a lot on movie theater sodas and designer eyeglasses, at least you're not following these bits of the dumbest financial advice people have gotten. On the other side of it, here are reckless uses of money that people didn't regret at all.

Pun Business Names That Really Went For It

Does a business with a funny name make it a better business? Honestly, no. And in some case, like going to a chiropractor with a silly name would probably feel like a deal breaker. Who in this world wants their spine guy to be full of dad jokes? That said we can't fault these entrepreneurs for hinging the success of their business on a silly name they thought of.

Senior Manager Gets Employee Fired, Employee Digs Up Manager's Dirty Past

If you have skeletons hanging out in your closet, it's probably best to not make it your personal mission to get an employee terminated over a whole bunch of nonsense. In this case, the employee did a little research on their old senior manager after being fired, and ended up learning that the senior manager had a bit of a troubled, secret past. Suffice to say, that was it for the senior manager, and the employee ended up being offered their gig.

You've gotta hand it to Radiant Plumbing and Air Conditioning for putting together whatever on God's green earth this thing is. We're totally blind regarding their acumen at putting a toilet back together, but they seem pretty damn good at putting a toilet-themed sci-fi parody together. It's got that local-business-vibe.
