Most of us will do whatever it takes to avoid doing our actual jobs. For some, it's almost a challenge to see how much we can get away with not doing.

Man Tells Girlfriend She Doesn't Work Hard Enough For Salary

Yikes. When it comes to the kinds of things that you should absolutely never say to your partner (or anyone, really) this dude just added a new one to the pool. If you have a partner who is rocking a badass salary, and then you proceed to try and knock them down by trashing them for not working hard enough, you are in dire need of a little life assessment time. Clearly, this dude's got a whole lot of toxic nonsense boiling underneath the surface.

Biggest Red Flags People Got During Job Interviews

Not all jobs are made the same. Looking for a job can be a dramatic adventure fraught with personal doubt and harsh self evaluation. It's a moment that inspires many painfully relatable job interview memes. Honestly it's weird that we have to name our own value as people and jockey with employers who would like nothing more than to get as much work out of us as possible for the least amount of compensation possible. Some jobs are definitely better than others, and it's apparent during the interview process. A lot of them are worth a "screw this, I'm out."

Times People Said "Screw This" And Noped On Out

There are moments in our lives when, despite everyone's best efforts to keep us around, the benefits clearly don't outweigh the risks, and we have that freeing moment when we realize we can just leave. It can be a bad job or sketchy situation. Sometimes it just take a "screw this, I'm out" moment for us to notice that it's probably a better idea to set out for greener pastures.

Entitled And Incompetent Coworker Gets Rightful Comeuppance

Nothing quite flares the temper like realizing that you're working alongside someone who is clearly not qualified for the job, and is only there due to glaring favoritism. In this particular scenario it sounds like she was bound to fail big time and beyond repair. It was really just a matter of time. So if anything maybe this tale's a mixture of karma and pro revenge.

Dad Gets Fired For BS Reason, Plays The Long Game

This one definitely qualifies as a pro revenge. The dad apparently got fired for a total BS reason, but ended up being the one in charge in the long run, and on top of that was able to take the extended family on a cruise!

"Not My Job" Moments of Unprofessional Failure

We've all had some kind of our own "not my job" moments before. It could have been sweeping a little too much dirt under a rug or cleverly not seeing a whole bunch of stuff that needed doing. A lot of the time it's just doing what someone told you to do even though you know it's wrong. The problem with "not my job" moments of dubious unprofessionalism is that they very frequently get found out.
