The Stupidest Reasons Companies Fired People

Unfortunately, a ton of us have had our run-ins with being fired from companies over the dumbest matters. Honestly, sometimes it can end up being for the best. Life is far too short to put yourself through nothing short of a hellish experience just because you're committed to chasing the next paycheck. There's always going to be another gig out there that can pay you a decent enough amount of money, without you having to bid farewell to your soul in the process. Sometimes just quitting the job in the first place or getting fired, actually opens up the opportunity for a far better job to present itself. For some more career drama check out some of the biggest red flags that people got during their job interviews

If you can't walk the walk, just don't talk the talk. Otherwise, you'll likely end up putting yourself in a video that will stand the test of time itself, because everything is forever on the internet. This egotistical contestant on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" came right out of the gate with all the brags. Then, oh boy, he proceeds to literally get the first question wrong. Whoops.

Choosing Beggar Tries To Haggle Over Artist's Pricing, Gets Rejected, Turns Nasty

This is definitely not the first time that we've seen a choosing beggar pitch a fit over a completely reasonable pricing being offered up, and we're sure that it unfortunately won't be the last time. It's just wild, man. The sheer amount of selfish ignorance. Like, they make a whole fuss out of being rejected by an artist who is just trying to make their own money during hard times. Where's the understanding?

Woman's Friend Secretly Sets Her Up For Blind Date, Woman Already Has Boyfriend

It's hard to believe that this person's even real in the first place. The disgusting lack of boundaries and respect from this woman's "friend" is enough to leave you questioning how they even ended up being friends in the first place. I mean, to have the audacity to set your friend up for a blind date when they already have a partner is pretty mind-blowing. Thus, it's no wonder that this woman didn't want to be her friend's bridesmaid anymore. Sounds like the bride is already well on her way toward being nothing short of a bridezilla.

Classmate "Saves" Goldfish By Releasing Them Into Ocean, Gets Reality Checked

Well, this is a pure and good old-fashioned fail right here, folks. Our hearts absolutely go out to the poor goldfish that were set "free" into the very body of water that they never wanted anything to do with in the first place. Was the classmate's heart in the right place? Sure. Sure, but that doesn't mean that what they ended up doing was nothing less than an absolute catastrophe. For some more drama from the aquatic realm, check out this story about a pet store employee who saved a starfish from being tortured by a Karen.

While this video is clearly a throwback as is evident from the stunning video quality, it's also a haunting testament to the risky business that can be joining the crowd at a golf tournament. There's no backstop around to shield you from those errant golf shots, where things didn't go as planned. The fact that the shank occurs twice really makes you feel it for the crowd.

Maybe the news anchor was just a highly trained martial artist in disguise himself. Alright, but in all seriousness the cringe couldn't have been more potent in this moment. Hopefully this "martial artist" learned his lesson and puts all the deceptive antics to rest.

There's an impressive amount of cringe packed into this short video. It's definitely not rare for artists to lean on their own recordings for the live performances, but they're also generally able to rely on their sound team to not totally mess everything up. In this case though, Ashlee Simpson wasn't so lucky. Meanwhile, the band was more than ready to put on their own performance when it became clear that Ashlee Simpson was dipping out of the scene.

Honestly, it's really the sweet, golden, cringeworthy silence that ties this whole video together. If only we could get a pure glimpse into what must've been flashing through the mind of Jessica when she realized that she was indeed, live.

Tryhard Behavior That Makes People Look Worse

Unfortunately, we've all come across folks that insist on putting out all kinds of tryhard energy that only ends up making them look worse when it's all said and done. For instance, the folks that try to gain the favor of the rest of the group by putting down any oddballs that might be around. It's like they're so clueless that they went ahead and believed that the popular bully in a throwback film that got popular through being an insufferable prick was an acceptable representation of how to carry yourself as a human being. Um, no. Not at all.

Man Tells The Story Of Worst Hotel Stay Of All Time

Man oh man, you've really got to feel it for anyone who is responsible for cleaning out those hotel rooms. People can tend to be absolute messy animals when it comes to what they'll do to a hotel room. This guy's stay at a hotel couldn't have been any more disastrous. We would've loved to have seen the look on his face when he realized what kind of destruction had been created by those dang seagulls. Like, absolute chaos. Most people would probably try to abandon the scene of the crime before any graver repercussions presented themselves. 

An entertaining Facebook post about the absolute worst hotel guest of all time.

Apparently, the folks that have worked in malls can confirm that there's some truth to this very dramatic presentation from an unforgettably intense mall walker. It's like, you almost want to believe she's kidding, but there's also some inkling of a feeling that this is all genuine.
