Entitled Mom Wants Cheap Rate For 4 Kids, Tries To Swindle Babysitter

It's probably pretty hard to find a babysitter for four kids under the age of 5, but also, no one told them to have a mountain of kids. There's a surprising amount of babysitter drama, like this entitled mom who lashed out after her babysitter found a better job or this entitled mom who harassed her neighbor about free babysitting. The moment that takes the cake here is when they try to offer what seems like a better rate, but then underestimate that their baby sitter would know basic math.

Woman Won't Donate Vacation Days To Coworker, Asks If She's Wrong

Oh boy, the drama between coworkers is a ceaseless phenomenon. This time around we have one woman asking the moral judges of Reddit's AITA community whether or not she was in the wrong for refusing to donate her vacation days to a pregnant coworker. Based off the context provided here it really sounds like the fault falls on the company for putting their employees in a situation where there's no paid maternity leave being provided. If they'd simply provided that, then the rest of the drama could've been avoided altogether. Or, like what if the company just gave her more time off because she's pregnant and all that? For some more juicy drama check out this quick post about an entitled coworker who demanded a free cake, got denied, and then proceeded to issue threats

An Imaginative Conversation On Getting Out Of Work

It doesn't even matter that this is pretty much guaranteed to be fake. The conversation itself is ridiculous and entertaining. Maybe, the best course of action is to just play dumb if you really, really need to get out of work.

Entitled Coworker Demands Free Cake, Gets Denied, Issues Threats

It's hard to fully digest the fact that these kinds of people actually exist. You've got to wonder where all the dizzying entitlement really took root. Was it nurtured from a young age, or did it present its ugly face sometime later in life? In the case of this employee, it seems like it's a bit of a lose-lose situation based off their impossibly testy and disrespectful attitude. And then the fact that they have the audacity to issue threats at the end there. Pretty unreal. Check out more entitled people with their fantastical demands over here

"Not My Job" Moments of Occupational Ineptitude

As human beings, it's our duty to complete our jobs with the absolute minimum in mind. To some degree, we all pride ourselves on looking like we've done our jobs without making our general apathy and unprofessionalism too obvious. That said, we're not perfect and it can show in the form of "not my job" moments of dubious professionalism. But also, it's not like an upside-down stop sign is impossible to read.

We've all had bad days where we don't care about our jobs, but that lady really let that package fall with thousand resonations of "I don't give a damn." In what couldn't be better PR for the US Postal Service, we've got a dude who goes out of his way to undo the shoddy work done by his FedEx predecessor and get the other packages out of the rain. Thanks, mail dude.

Jobs That Look Simple But Are Surprisingly Difficult

Different jobs come with different challenges, be they physical, emotional, or have you leaving every day with pants full of dirt. It's extremely easy to look at another person's profession and idealize it in your mind, but more often than not, the parts you get to see are just the easiest or most glamorous. These insider zookeeper secrets are a good example of the kind of behind the scenes crap everyone has to put up with. And of course some jobs are so ridiculous that people just quit on the first day.

Horrible Coworkers People Had to Endure

Work comes with a distinct set of expectations. As long as people are basically cooperative and don't get on each other's nerves, everyone can walk away happy. But sometimes a person's explosive personality, annoying habits, or smell can get in the way of that. Particularly bad coworkers will even steal lunches or use sonograms to trick their boyfriend.

Weird Encounters Delivery Drivers Had

It used to be that pizza delivery drivers bore the brunt of the weirdness, but now that people can have basically anything brought to their door, it widens the scope of strange and intriguing situations strangers can have with each other. 20 pizzas to an elks lodge? Makes sense. 20 bunches of bananas to a hotel room at 3 in the morning? Well, hopefully they tip well as an apology for what you're about to see.

Client Demands Unblocked Spam Filter, Regrets His Decision

There's nothing quite like that sweet "I told you so feeling" you get when a customer gets exactly what they wanted and learns that they screwed up. It feels good to drink in the visceral feeling of an outsmarted horrible customer. Customers are often wrong, but too few of us don't give a rip, so this kind of interaction is as rare as it is sweet.
