‘Gen Z Sucks’ : Baby Boomers Spark Debate on Reddit Thread Regarding the New Tech-Savvy Generation

‘Gen Z Sucks’ : Baby Boomers Spark Debate on Reddit Thread Regarding the New Tech-Savvy Generation

Are you ‘with the times', or are you a Boomer? It's kind of a given that generational differences are going to spark heated debates. Boomers hate Gen X who hate Millennials. But who do these three generations hate the most? Gen Z, of course. We live in an era where generations don't really mix all that frequently. Youngsters seek out the freedom that independent living offers as soon as possible. The internet is rampant (Ahem, Reddit) with generational debates, and as Gen Z yap on about the pri…

20 Relatable Memes in the Form of Starter Packs, Illustrating Funny Archetypes

If you've ever scrolled through Reddit, chances are you have come across a starter pack. It's basically an internet meme that is created with the purpose of describing and/or illustrating a stereotypical person, place, culture, object, or opinion. Shoutout to Wikipedia for that lovely description. Some memes get old quickly, but starter packs capture universal truths that never go out of style. It's the reason the online community r/starterpacks is bustling with business, encouraging thousands…

‘You Get What You Deserve’ : Client Calls Out Fraudulent Lawyer via 1 Star Review, Leading To Blackmail That Backfires, Resulting in Ultimate Streisand Effect

When attempting to scam someone out of thousands of dollars, you might want to pick a weaker target (Not that I'm handing out tips, but let's be honest). This lawyer spared no effort in trying to throw his client under the bus, but this endeavor quickly went south, resulting in instant karma. What took place is the following: Mr. Attorney hotshot had the audacity to be angry at his client for leaving an honest review about his ‘work’ online. Once aware of said review, he demanded furiously that…

‘You Don’t Want to Do That’ : Employee's Good Intentions Prove Futile, Cheap Customer Picks Wrong Manager to Mess With, Leading to Karen Face Off

When a Karen meets her match, it's practically divine intervention… Good intentions are futile when it comes to ungrateful customers. Why bother attempting to save them a few bucks if they're going to wave you off and demand to speak to your manager? You know full well what's going to happen when they get involved, but the unsuspecting customer sure doesn't. This tale of malicious compliance is of the above example. A waiter took to Reddit, sharing the time he worked as a cashier in an oddly ex…

20+ Coworker Memes for Understaffed Teams of Employees With One Foot Out the Door

20+ Coworker Memes for Understaffed Teams of Employees With One Foot Out the Door

Every workplace (especially nowadays) comes with its own issues. You can find yourself as a part of an understaffed team, in a toxic environment, with an awful boss… the possibilities are endless. The one sure thing is you never get proper compensation for it. If you call in sick, you're gonna feel the wrath of the invisible grimace your boss is making on the other side of the phone (Assuming you're not a texter). Apparently, you're not allowed to feel unwell, because you don't have enough cowo…

15 Funniest Fails Presented as a Random Assortment of Candidly Wacky Pics

There are times we'd rather not get specific. In fact, most of the time we spend on the internet is done while mindlessly scrolling, clicking on random stuff, and finding ourselves in the depths of the WWW… There are rabbit holes that are better left unfound, and there are others that are sent by the internet gods (AKA the algorithm) as a blessing. Depending on how much we liked the rabbit hole we encountered, we may or may not pay it a revisit. The subreddit r/funny is a great example of a tim…

‘You Get What You Pay for’ : Company Dodges Corporate Client’s Gaslighting/Manipulation via Malicious Compliance, Leading To Project’s Ultimate Demise

Clients who try to gaslight you might want to think twice about leaving a paper trail, as that ultimately defeats the purpose of gaslighting. This particular client in question has a long list of faults, such as unreasonable expectations, refusal to listen to logic (they don't adhere to the universal laws of physics apparently), and pulling the classic shocked Pikachu face when presented with proof of their own incompetence. You can't just expect to be a top-priority client without paying for w…

'By 9AM, I'm on my 18th glass of sweet tea': Texan explains the daily routine for rootin' tootin' cowboys, which includes practicing yeehaws, gargling beers, and jacking up yer pickup truck

'By 9AM, I'm on my 18th glass of sweet tea': Texan explains the daily routine for rootin' tootin' cowboys, which includes practicing yeehaws, gargling beers, and jacking up yer pickup truck

Cowboys and cowgirls are giddyupping faster than the world can follow, chugging sweet tea, room temperature beers, and yeehawing all the way to the Whataburger. Southern American lifestyle is an enigma to the rest of the world. The only thing more American than a standardized mayonaise-midwesterner is a true, pure bred Texan. The Lone Star State has an insane vibe that the rest of the country just can't match. Their blood is pickle juice , their trucks are tall, and they will always– ALWAYS– re…

‘I Won’t Sign Your Weird Contract’ : College Student Dodges Unfair Grading via Malicious Compliance, Professor Left Speechless When She Can’t Fail Her

‘I Won’t Sign Your Weird Contract’ : College Student Dodges Unfair Grading via Malicious Compliance, Professor Left Speechless When She Can’t Fail Her

Study guides are basically the hail mary of every student, but there are professors who don't believe in this practicality — because they would rather encourage their students to read the entire material, adding to the sublime mountain of headache they already have. In my opinion, any professor who does this is simply lazy. Why don't the students just buy the books and not pay for classes? It would certainly be much cheaper. Thanks for adding to the small fortune I owe to the banks called stude…

'I'm A Genius!' : Top 20 Funniest Verdicts By Shower Masterminds We've Seen This Week

'I'm A Genius!' : Top 20 Funniest Verdicts By Shower Masterminds We've Seen This Week

Good ideas are never born when you're on the brink of a mental breakdown or having a panic attack at work. I am convinced that the best ideas actually come to mind when you're simply chilling. We can take Isaac Newton as an example, as it has historically been suggested that he came up with the law of universal gravitation after an apple plopped onto his head, while he was resting under a tree. There is no actual evidence to support the theory, but the myth has not been entirely dispelled, so w…

‘Fine, I’ll Play the System’ : Man Commutes 175 Miles per Day to Work, Company Refuses to Reimburse Him for Transit, Leading to Malicious Compliance

Committing to a 6+ hour commute to work every day is a superpower that most of us cannot claim to have. I certainly wouldn't be willing to do that under any circumstance. This Redditer told his impressive tale of malicious compliance, where he beat the system that was designed to fail, after asking his company to reimburse his travel costs. At the time he was living in San Diego, working in Downtown Los Angeles (that's a 175-mile per day commute). He was in the middle of studying for an exam th…

‘I Demand a Raise’ : 20+ Memes of the Week for Grumpy Overworked Employees Who Are Ready to Abandon the Workplace

Almost every workplace is understaffed these days, leading to its employees being overworked, even though they don't get proper compensation for doing more than one job… it's enough to make anyone mad. If you call in sick, you know your boss is gonna make that face… not that you'd see it, but you would certainly know that it's happening. You can practically hear the grimace over the phone (or text, when they reply with a bitter ‘feel well’ because what are they gonna do?). Work takes up so much…

Were you one of those people who were warned beforehand about the struggles of being responsible for another human being? Or did you glide into the abyss, blissfully ignorant? Either way, they don't just sit there and look cute, as I'm sure you're well aware of now. They are little gluesticks, literally and figuratively. First, because they waddle around you constantly, just always… there . Secondly, they use actual glue and smear it on your couch, in the name of art. They sure are little monst…

‘You Gave the Wrong Employee Demerit Points…’ : New Supervisor Ultimately Gets Himself Fired When He Messes With Invaluable Machinist, Leading to Malicious Compliance and Chaos in Production

‘You Gave the Wrong Employee Demerit Points…’ : New Supervisor Ultimately Gets Himself Fired When He Messes With Invaluable Machinist, Leading to Malicious Compliance and Chaos in Production

It seems like a common theme for new supervisors to enter the workplace with a big bang, having the desire to prove themselves, leading to a quick and sudden change in the status quo. Oftentimes, this isn't necessarily a good thing. Some are as quick to go as they are to come, and this is exactly what happened in this particular case. A foreman joined a company and naively thought he could mess around with one of their oldest employees (a machinist) when giving him demerit points for being ten…
