34 Wholesome Posts for Overworked Employees Who Need a Vacation

34 Wholesome Posts for Overworked Employees Who Need a Vacation

I need a vacation asap. Work has me yawning in my seat, dreaming of powdery white sand, blue skies, green palm trees, and turquoise water. But one can only go on vacation if they can afford it, and unfortunately, I can't right now. So I'll sift through emails, organize folders, and do my boss's bidding in the meantime. What other choice do I have? Inflation is ruining us all. Heading out to the local store and buying groceries evokes anxiety in me like nothing else, except maybe car trouble. Si…

'She tried to get her money back': Woman buys a laptop to use solely on vacation, then attempts to get a full refund when she arrives home

If you've ever sold something online, you know that the customers aren't ideal. They text you, 'Is this available?', only to ghost you when you answer in the affirmative. Or they promise to pick it up, set up a date and a time, and then never show up. Or they actually show up with half the money and give you a sob story on why you should give them the item for free. Yes, I'm speaking from experience. One man decided to sell an old laptop he had back from his University days, posting it online,…

‘He’s coming with us': Woman demands friends leave their toddler at home after organizing a vacation together, leading to a dispute

‘He’s coming with us': Woman demands friends leave their toddler at home after organizing a vacation together, leading to a dispute

Some people really don't like kids. For instance, this person, who OP calls Zoe. She disliked kids so much that she would avoid them at all costs. That became impossible after OP and her friends (which included Zoe) organized a trip together to meet another friend 2 States away. At first, it seemed like OP wouldn't need to take their toddler with them, but as time went on and a few complicated situations arose, they realized that they didn't have a choice. Look, if you've got a kid, and the tri…

‘You could have programmed the correct number, but you didn’t': Woman gets back at person who fails to program correct number into phone while inquiring about horse

‘You could have programmed the correct number, but you didn’t': Woman gets back at person who fails to program correct number into phone while inquiring about horse

Sometimes you punch in a number on your phone to call someone, and a total stranger ends up on the other line. You called the wrong number, no big deal. Then you do it again, and again… and again. Until the person on the other side is wondering why it's so hard to call the RIGHT number. It's a fair question. This woman was contacted via text 5 times over the span of a year and a half, and it was always the same person inquiring about the same thing… A horse. The woman, OP, had no idea what they…

Front desk clerks discuss ‘well-travelled individuals’ who are actually just entitled

Front desk clerks discuss ‘well-travelled individuals’ who are actually just entitled

If you've ever worked at the front reception of a hotel, you will have heard it all. From, ‘This is the first time I’ve ever been asked to do this', to ‘I have never heard of city fees’, people will say anything to convince you to let them off easy. The funniest, most ironic part of it all is they usually say something along the lines of, ‘I’ve traveled ALL AROUND THE WORLD, and I've never heard of such a policy'. Immediately you roll your eyes… If they really are so ‘well-traveled’, then this…

‘Stay away, it's for your own good': Locals discuss top 28 'unwritten rules' in their country that tourists always break

‘Stay away, it's for your own good': Locals discuss top 28 'unwritten rules' in their country that tourists always break

Too often, I've seen tourists ignore big blatant signs in their own native language that read, ‘Do not enter'. But enter, they do. Sometimes they get lucky, while other times, not so much. And I'm not speaking from a ‘high and mighty’ place, because I myself have ignored instructions and had to pay the price. One person posted a question to r/askreddit, asking which unwritten rules tourists always seem to ignore when they are on vacation abroad. There is a whole variety of answers from people l…

'You wanted a decorated house, Karen': Neighbors comply with resident's demands to decorate yard, making sure it leaves a lasting impression

'You wanted a decorated house, Karen': Neighbors comply with resident's demands to decorate yard, making sure it leaves a lasting impression

Some people are just so unagreeable that it makes you wonder who taught them manners. The answer is probably nobody, so that explains why they act like they deserve to have everything handed to them on a golden platter. This neighborhood Karen drove up to one of her neighbors, who we will call OP, and told them off for not setting up Christmas decorations around their house. When OP explained why they weren't decorating that year (a very legitimate reason, by the way, and not that generally it…

'I'm getting sick of my auntie Karen': Karen sabotages niece's efforts to bake for a market by taking over the kitchen space all week

'I'm getting sick of my auntie Karen': Karen sabotages niece's efforts to bake for a market by taking over the kitchen space all week

It sounds like this person's aunt smelled some competition. She was making pie filling for an upcoming Holiday market, while her niece planned to bake a flan. It's always hard sharing space with family members during this time of the year, so the niece tried to get around any potential problems by requesting use of the kitchen for one day that week well in advance. Of course, everyone said yes, but at the last minute, this woman's aunt decided to unleash the Karen inside of her. This thread was…

‘You need to get out': Manager kicks out non-tipping customer after graciously giving them service despite faulty ID

Running around the restaurant trying to take orders, pick up dirty plates, and grant ridiculous requests such as ‘Give me a literal bowl of ketchup’ is exhausting. Especially when your entire wage depends on the kindness of strangers, also known as customers. Are they going to tip? How much are they going to tip? Will I be able to afford to fix my car this month, or am I going to cry when I see my account balance instead? You never know. Around the holidays, people are often a little more gener…

PTO policy is something that employees are extremely familiar with. The moment they plop themselves in that ergonomic office chair on their first day of work, they're already looking for ways to get out of it.

Merry messes: 25 Times holiday expectations didn't match the reality

Merry messes: 25 Times holiday expectations didn't match reality

This holiday season , make sure to read the reviews before you buy your loved ones presents on that sketchy website. You know the kind: they advertise a beautiful blanket for $5, or a brand-new bike for $10. The prices make you narrow your eyes and wonder what the catch is. Well, the catch is that it's way too good to be true. The same is true of DIY crafts and baking projects. How hard could it possibly be to make some Santa Claus cookies or a Christmas tree puff pastry? Thanks to Photoshop an…

'Your house is the joke of the neighborhood': Grinch Karen leaves petty note on neighbor's doorstep because of their holiday decorations

'Your house is the joke of the neighborhood': Grinch Karen leaves petty note on neighbor's doorstep because of their holiday decorations

What would the Holidays be without a Grinch? In this case, we have a Karen who simply could not stand her neighbor's Holiday decorations. Look, the truth is this neighbor might have overdone it a bit, but unless their decorations are aggressive or hostile, there is absolutely nothing this Grinch can do about it. It's the neighbor's property, not Karen's. It doesn't matter if she has been living in the neighborhood for five minutes or five years, nor does it matter if she is older. Thankfully, p…

‘I refuse to accommodate her': Former mother-in-law refuses to attend Christmas dinner unless it's on ‘her terms’

Family Christmas dinners are either the event you most look forward to OR the event that you are wholeheartedly dreading every day of the year until December, by which time you accept your fate. One daughter-in-law, who for the sake of this story, we will call OP, feared the latter, as she was no longer with her spouse, and did not take a liking to his family at all. The mother-in-law, who we will call Karen, liked to scowl, drink, complain, and do things her way. She never went out of her way…

'I came out on top': Guy charged $30 to exchange Christmas gift, refuses on principle, challenges policy and makes the store pay up

'I came out on top': Guy charged $30 to exchange Christmas gift, refuses on principle, challenges policy and makes the store pay up

It takes a special kind of person to interpret a store's return policy as a suggestion and not a rule. I myself do not possess this quality. If I'm told to pay up, even if it's ridiculous, I often put my goodie two shoes on and cough up the money. This is not a quality of which I am proud, especially over the Holiday season when there are a lot of scams out there. In times like these, I wish I knew someone like this Redditor so he could stand up to the store manager on my behalf. This thread wa…

'Did you forget that 2 weeks ago...you literally told us we were going to love the party?': Entitled neighbors don't invite couple to Christmas party after talking about it for 6 months, instead asked them to babysit their kids

'Did you forget that 2 weeks ago...you literally told us we were going to love the party?': Entitled neighbors don't invite couple to Christmas party after talking about it for 6 months, instead ask them to babysit

What does 'being neighborly' mean to you? Does it mean you actually become friends with your neighbors, or is it just a pretend friendship to keep things cordial, as you're forced to live next to each other for the unforeseeable future? I guess it depends on the kind of neighbors you get stuck with. Well, this couple thought they were actually becoming close friends with their new neighbors until they received this unexpected blow right before their annual Christmas party.
