Employee Plays Their Aces When Confronted By Company

Man oh man, Dave was just a bit of a sleeper hit in this tale of glorious, malicious compliance. What initially looked like a case of a slacker who couldn't be bothered to get into work on time, and not take an excess amount of breaks, ended up manifesting in a showdown between Dave and the company that cleared him for everything in the first place. Good stuff, Dave.

"Not My Job" Moments of Unpredictable Unprofessionalism

Work is hard. That's why we try our absolute hardest to not try our hardest. These moments of quality unprofessionalism spring forth in the form of misspelled signs, messed up products, extremely curvy highway lines and totally useless staircases to nowhere. And we couldn't have it any other way.

The fact that this manager ended up quitting after unsuccessfully trying to humiliate an employee, is the real icing on the cake.

Work Memes to Hide from the Boss

Work. We need to do it to not be hungry and cold, but other than that it's missing some benefits. Depending on their job, most people would rather just sit and be bored. And everyone's attitude at work is a strange combination of trying to do as little as possible while blaming everyone around them for doing as little as possible. It can get rough. At least there are work memes to blow off work steams.

Chad decided to make all the employees situation inconvenient in order to try and save some money, but he ended up costing more money for the company in the end. The employees spoke their mind through charity. For another weird budget story, here's a Karen who used up her entire budget on ugly PowerPoints.

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.

Lousy Sales Assistant Lies About Leads, Gets Outed

Some people are just impossible to work with. Not only was this assistant just straight up lousy at their job, but they continually ratted out their teammate for not being exactly on time, when they worked at a place that didn't even care about that to begin with. Well, eventually this all came back to bite them in the butt, and they were exposed breaking a much more serious rule in the sales game.

Boss Demands Demolished Office, Gets More than That

There's a right way and a wrong way to demolish an office, and it's looking like these guys took the wrong way. Maybe they shouldn't have taken their boss's orders so literally, or could have planned better. Either way what they got was a big headache. This one didn't come down on anyone, but it's not uncommon for a boss to orchestrate their own downfall.

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.

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. It seems like they were well within their right, and are better off to have that garbage behind them. For another interesting quitting story, here's an employee who walked out and got a promotion out of it.

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.
