Senior Manager Gets Employee Fired, Employee Turns The Tables

There's nothing we love more than seeing an employee get their righteous vengeance. The one thing this employee needs to do is keep a wary eye out for that manager on down the road. Outside of that, good riddance, Eva.

Man Follows Contracted Hours, Team Follows Suit, Management Caves

Man, oh, man, it sounds like this particular management team was terribly detached and clueless. They continued to send in uniformed representatives, as their company was proactively losing money, and wasted a whole lot of time when they could've actually resolved the issue. All that it took to set the whole thing in motion was one employee strictly following their contracted hours.

Incompetent Manager Fires The Wrong Guy

The moral of the story with this pro revenge is that one does not fire the guy who knows all the stuff. In this case, the manager sounds like he was an incompetent fool with a chip on his shoulders from the get. It's no surprise that his whole team was disbanded in short time, after he fired the wrong dude.

Karen Uses Up Budget on Ugly Powerpoints, Gets Fired

In a stunning display of pig-headed incompetence, these clients managed to bust their budget on ridiculously bad designs, to the point that it cost Karen her job. For some other wild Karen behavior, here's an HOA Karen who complained about guide dog training. For some unprofessionalism, here's a customer who got mistaken for a job applicant, then the interviewers break the law.

Murky Secrets of Various Industries

Not every job or role is as noble, omnipotent, or even as useful as they always seem to be. There are sketchy secrets in tons of industries, from how you're being charged to who exactly is on the other end of the phone. It can be a little unsettling to know how people actually feel about their own jobs, but it's not exactly shocking.

Uncle Bankrupts Previous Mean Employer

Oh man, this guy literally brought the walls in around his previous employer, until he'd basically starved him of hiring opportunities. This revenge seems cold and calculated, and like it wasn't rushed. Patience can absolutely pay off in the long run.

Twitter Thread: Star Trek and the Inhumanity of Gig Economies

Twitter user _danilo uses an example from Star Trek to explain some of the dangers of having an industry that lacks face-to-face interaction with its own workers. It's scary enough to imagine your job being done by a cold, calculating robot, but what if your boss's job was done by a cold, calculating robot? For something with more Star Trek fun and less technocratic dread, here's an awesome Tumblr post on how hard humans go in Star Trek.

Manager Bullies Employee Till They Quit, Employee Reports Manager

We love a good tale of a nasty manager getting theirs in the end. This particular manager sounds like a grade A bully. The manager exercised zero empathy for an employee going through a heartbreaking loss. On top of displaying zero human empathy, the manager proceeded to make the devastated employee's life miserable by blatantly targeting them for a whole bunch of nothing. Fortunately, the employee was able to get HR involved, and ultimately put together enough evidence that ultimately contributed toward the manager's ultimate downfall. 

Check out another glorious tale of revenge with these naive young business owners that foolishly fired the man with the patents.

People Who Actually Like Their Jobs Explain Why

In this day and age, it's sadly rare that people actually enjoy what they do. It also makes you wonder if it's not necessarily the job but the type of person and their outlook that makes their job worth it. Interestingly enough, it's often not the jobs that look fun that grant the most satisfaction. Here are some jobs that look fun but aren't.

Customer Gets Mistaken for Job Applicant, Interviewers Break Law

This person was just trying to get their machine repaired when some less than professional employees ended up trying to interview them, then reject them from said job.

Strangest Things Window Cleaners Witnessed

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about window cleaners' most memorable experiences on the job. For whatever reason, we have a knack for forgetting that people can peek through our windows if we don't have the blinds down. And on top of that, that certain buildings hire certain professionals to clean those windows. From there, it quickly becomes clear that so many of us can be complete animals when we think that nobody is watching. 

Window cleaners share stories from their time on the job | maytswizzle 5d worked retail and once month window cleaner lady would come and clean store windows. She told one time she cleaning windows inside Apple store and man walks by and licks outside part window she cleaning.
