'He was out to get me from the start': Employee deletes all his work files after being fired by manager who wants to take down the company

Getting fired is not a fun experience, that is a no-brainer. Nobody likes getting fired, and nobody wants it. Most of the time, it comes out of nowhere, but sometimes you actually see it coming. Whether by listening to a hushed conversation between your supervisors or when you see a suspicious-looking meeting was added to your calendar. I always wanted to be one of those employees who dare to teach the boss a lesson when they decide to fire you. Some kind of way to say “You are going to be sorr…

'You better believe I wore the "baby sharp" hat everyday': Clever line cook gets snubbed by a humorless manager, makes their own fun by wearing the joke on their uniform

It's important to keep some semblance of 'fun' in the workplace because that's the only thing that's getting you (and your coworkers) through your workday. But like every group project in middle school, there's always going to be a Debbie Downer in your group, determined to squash any good-natured fun that falls outside of the rulebook.

'He claims [I] was "wasting two hours of everybody's time"': Manager refuses to speak to IT employee after being embarrassed in front of clients

This employee didn't want to one-up their boss , but their hand was forced (by said boss). What's an employee to do? While working in IT at a small company , this guy was accustomed to working on different types of devices and operating systems. The employee was encouraged to bring their own device "as long as it got the job done." It's clear that their boss didn't understand what they did, though, after he made some questionable decisions. It's one thing if you and your boss don't get along at…

'I knew I was getting fired': Retail manager creates the world's hardest passwords just before getting fired

One retail worker inspired us all with the way they got back at the company that was going to fire them. There's a reason most companies fire people in the most private way possible. Usually, the person will be called into a meeting with HR at a time when few employees are around. After HR breaks the news, the person might have to sign a few papers, but their desk will be cleared out for them and they'll be escorted out the door. I mean, that's the professional and careful way to do things, but…

‘You have no clue what you're doing': Customer demands to speak to manager after yelling at employee, only to discover the employee is the manager

‘You have no clue what you're doing': Customer demands to speak to manager after yelling at employee, only to discover the employee is the manager

Every customer should remind themselves when they go into any type of store, that the employees are there for a reason. They have had training, they probably have been working there for a while, and you are not the first customer walking in. The bottom line is, they know what they're doing. So if you, a customer, come in and ask for a product and an employee tells you that they don't have it, chances are, they don't have it. Calling the employee names or asking to see the manager, will not chan…

Managers will do just about anything to cover a wayward shift in the fast food industry. With corporate goons breathing down their neck and a 70-hour week on their horizon, it's no wonder managers become desperately manic when an employee no-shows or calls out sick. They're at their brink. However, the manager in our next story proved to be more manic than desperate...

'No refunds, no exceptions': Restaurant refuses to reimburse customer for food they never delivered

‘I never got the food’, said the customer, perplexed, and continued ‘I'd like a refund'. Fair enough, right? Wrong. The restaurant manager's response was astounding, as made it clear that it didn't matter… They were not going to reimburse the customer for the food, regardless of whether they received it or not. If that sounds crazy, that's because it is. But wait, let's pause for a second and rewind. The customer in question took to r/pettyrevenge to share their order gone wrong story. Let's ca…

If you've never experienced it, picture this: Every day you clock in, you are exposed to the scrutiny of every high-horse, ivory tower, wannabe with a superiority complex and despite your desire to dismiss their overinflated opinion with a waive, your commission depends on them.

'Give 0% tip, get 0% service': Casino server gets payback on a notorious no-tip customer, causes 'tipping culture' controversy in the comment section

It's no secret that tipping culture in America has gotten out of hand in the last few years. Every business with an iPad as their POS system will flip their little screen around to their customers they sheepishly say, ‘It’s just going to ask you a few questions'… Sorry, but it's hard to justify tipping 35% on a $7 coffee, but the social pressure of the barista with an imperious stare, a septum piercing, and electric pink hair is tough to ignore.

'Within 15 minutes, I lost access to everything': Company celebrates employee's work anniversary only to fire him the very next day

As much as companies love to say that the workplace is just like a family, we all know that these people are not your family, sometimes they are not even your friends. Your boss doesn't see you as a family member, and they do not hesitate to toss you aside the moment you do not profit the company the way they expect you to. I don't know about your family, but it is definitely not how mine works. The employee on this Reddit story learned these facts the hard way. A mere day after the company cel…

‘Don’t bother coming in to work tomorrow': Employee asks manager for missing tax documents from her paycheck, manager responds by firing employee

As a child, thinking about becoming an adult and having to deal with things like taxes is genuinely terrifying. As an adult, well, it's actually still pretty terrifying. It will forever be a mystery why we don't have classes at school that teach us how to deal with these sorts of things. But somehow, we learn the ropes, and with each year we grow up we get to learn more and more about adult life. The manager in this Reddit post still has some lessons to learn.

One fed-up candidate who had the privilege of job searching while they still had a job snapped back at an HR representative over text after discovering that a ‘one-way interview’ was part of the screening process. What exactly is a one-way interview? Well, it can vary but it's usually a brief video recording that job candidates send potential employers to aid them in their screening process. You typically answer a few pre-selected interview questions. Awkward, right? Demeaning almost. This cand…
