Work Memes to Slow Down Productivity

The working life can inspire some immense feelings of dread, but at least a lot of people are going through it, so it's not like everyone's alone in it all. That's why it's nice to have some work memes for the hustle as well as the bustle. With all the boring coworkers and dumb customers, sometimes we need work memes to blow off work steams.

Fastest Ways People's Co-Workers Got Fired

It's nothing short of a miracle that these people were able to weasel their way into getting jobs in the first place. You've got the dude with the next level situational awareness, who decided it'd be a good move to light up a smoke next to a bunch of hay. Or you've got the other prime job candidate who was hired, and then proceeded to just never show up. It's as if some people get hired just to see how long it'll take them to get fired. Try hard enough, and it really won't take too much time to get canned at all. 

Check out another entertaining AskReddit thread that's about the ways workers got their bosses fired.

Delusional Manager Won't Accept Resignation

This person asked if they were right to walk out after their boss tried some weird manipulative BS by "not accepting" their two wees notice.

People That Love Their Jobs

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the people that genuinely love their jobs. As it turns out, some folks are actually lucky enough to find themselves with a career opportunity that doesn't feel like work at all. It can be done. And if you ever find yourself in that kind of position, just hold on for dear life. And if you're not, maybe some of these gigs will give you new ideas about a career shift.

Fastest Times People's New Co-Workers Were Fired

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the fastest times that people's new co-workers were fired from their jobs. If anything, it's just surprising that these people were able to get their jobs in the first place. You never know what kinds of red flags people might be hiding before you hire them on. Yikes. Makes us think of the recent story about a nightmare Karen employee who got fired, and used the same employer as a reference.
