‘Sorry to Break It to You, Our Work Culture Sucks’ : 20 Funniest Memes for the Broke Crowd Who Live for the Weekend

There are few people in this world who can honestly say that they actually enjoy their jobs. Most of us just kind of exist in this black hole called existence and try not to stir stuff up with HR or yell at our office Karen. If you work in retail, you try not to end up in the News for jumping at a customer. You count every day leading up to the weekend, and tell your coworkers that you are ‘definitely quitting this year’. 2023 is basically as stressful as 2022, and we're only a few days in… A l…

‘You Should Treat a Customer With Respect!’ : Entitled Lady Grabs Worker by the Arm, Demands Refund for Ice Cream She Already Ate

Without a doubt, the most soul-sucking industry in the world is customer service. You get firsthand access to the portion of the human population that hasn't quite evolved yet. The ones who lack an alarming amount of brain cells. Those with a very low IQ. The chunk that thinks they are God's gift to the world. Lord knows I don't miss it... I offer my sincere condolences to those of you that are still in this daily fight. There are too many human beings, strutting about with their nose high up i…

'They complained I was arriving late': Guy gets revenge on nosy coworker by stealing their coveted parking spot

Coworkers either become some of your closest friends — or they become the most infuriating plague on your existence you would have never hoped for.

Unfortunately, some workplaces tend to have more of the latter category, and these coworkers make the workplace a toxic apocalypse. This worker had to endure a nosy coworker who was determined to make worse the fa…

'Hey Y'all, You Should Wear These Shirts' : Man Fired From Job After a Decade, Gives All Company Shirts to Homeless as Revenge

When you work at a company for over a decade, you would likely expect your long-lasting effort and commitment to be appreciated. There is a reason that the plot of so many movies begins with the protagonist throwing his or her hands up in the air, at a loss for why the universe must be so cruel after the company hires a new boss. When new management enters the picture, it often ain't pretty. After all your hardworking efforts are plowed into the ground, your labor is overlooked, and you are tos…

'He called my boss a f-ing idiot': Insane coworker tricked into quitting on the spot when he thinks he hit the jackpot

One of the greatest joys of the already excellent workplace experience is coworkers: verifiable strangers with who you share nothing in common and who you are forced to spend more time with than your family. Your time with these people is eye-opening and really teaches you the limits of your own sanity as you're forced to endure the extreme strangeness of their existence. If you're lucky, these people are harmless and are just way too into their pets, children, or grandchildren. If you're not s…

My colleague has some trouble respecting boundaries and lies about one of our company's co-owners

Idiot coworker lies about boss's fake directive to make guy help them while on leave, guy gets the boss involved

There's nothing more infuriating than being relentlessly contacted by an annoying coworker while you're on leave. I mean, they're not even your boss, and for some reason, they feel entitled to having you do your work for them. This goes to another level when this coworker lies and makes up a story about how they're contacting you because the boss asked them to. This is a hard reach and easily verified by asking the boss themself. This is exactly what Redditor u/ver03255 did when a new coworker…

'I changed all of her permissions': Raging Karen complains to facilities manager that her keycard isn't working, he revokes her access

Imagine complaining about your keycard as a pitiful means to get attention… When the facilities manager, u/ImThe1Wh0 , had to deal with this raging Karen and her "Karen-in-Training" he was careful to comply with their every demand. "Karen-in-Training" had issues with her key card access after u/ImThe1Wh0 deleted her unassigned card while completing a key card audit.
