AITA for exposing all my coworkers after they said I was lazy?

'I took a video': Lazy coworkers try to scapegoat worker pulling all the weight, she records evidence and throws them under the bus

What is it with people constantly trying to blame someone else for the thing that they themselves are most guilty of? This hypocritical finger-pointing is just a vapid means of projection that these narcissistic robots employ whenever they feel threatened.

The other day I saw someone refer to being a parent as a "lifestyle choice." And I dang near choked on my coffee. A lifestyle choice is being vegetarian. Or adopting a lot of cats.

'PARENTING IS NOT A LIFESTYLE': LinkedIn user insists parenting isn't a lifestyle choice in viral post, argues harshly with anyone who disagrees

I dang near choked on my coffee when I saw this… This LinkedIn user staked everything on her argument that parenting is not a “lifestyle choice”, ravenously defending her claim and position against anyone who dared present other opinions or perspectives. It's probably most pertinent that we approach this logically: What is a “lifestyle”? Other than being a completely overused marketing buzzword, a lifestyle is literally just “The way in which a person lives,” so arguing that a lifestyle choice…

It happens all too often in your life that you run into stupid obstacles created by obstinate individuals who, for some reason or another have managed to lodge themselves in a position of power. Maybe they just don't like you, maybe they don't like what you do, maybe they just don't like the color of your tie, or — maybe they're just drooling at a chance to exercise what little control they have over their stupid lives.

Pedantic manager picks apart their own work Backstory: I worked for a high street retail chain that, in their infinite wisdom, ditched the store manager position and instead had 4 assistant managers running a store. This led to intensive workplace politics as the more competitive staff kept trying to pull stuff to make out that they were the big dog despite the fact that we were all on the same level.

Worker Manipulates Meddling Micromanager Into Annihilating Their Own Work

There's nothing more satisfying than watching the slow-motion train-wreck implosion of a deserving person destroying themself. This micromanaging boss was manipulated into doing exactly that when they tried to pick apart their own work, somehow without even recognizing that it was their own.

We've all been there: You're the guest at someone's house, and — after taking care of your business — you go to flush. Except, the contents of the bowl don't disappear like they're supposed to — i…
