"Ex Military Intelligence" Expects Internet Without Power

It seems like so frustratingly often that the very people that go out of their way to assure everyone that they know what they're doing, are actually hopelessly lost. In this case, it sounds like the "ex military intelligence" on staff could very likely have been making that whole prior life experience up. Like, how do you end up in a situation where you assume that your building will have working internet when the power's out? Something doesn't add up there. For some more tech support drama check out the time that a tech support employee got fired and unfired on the same day

Boss Tries To Take Priority Over Army, Doesn't Succeed

There are many kinds of incompetent managers out there. There's one memorable kind who's totally convinced that work takes precedence over every other function of life, like this boss who threatened to fire an employee over jury duty. Maybe it's because they think they're the king of their own little world? Time and time again, once another form of authority comes knocking, they crumple into a heap.

Just wait until we live in a world where jet suits become increasingly common, companies begin to invest in them for their employees, and one day you end up having a pizza delivery dude show up to your place in a stunning jet suit. It's only a matter of time.

AskReddit Thread: Funniest Things That Recruits Ever Said

This fun AskReddit thread has drill sergeants describing the funniest things that they ever heard recruits say. It makes enough sense that recruits would be apt to spew off some nonsensical things while under the pressure of a new environment, brimming with all kinds of emotional and physical tests. You've probably got to learn to hold a firm grasp on a solid sense of humor.

Staff Sergeant Supervisor Gets Caught Lying About Doing His Job

Is there a better feeling than catching your supervisor in a lie? Yes, when it's in writing. And even better than that, when you can leverage that knowledge to make them give you a more accurate performance review. Interesting things happen when there's a strict chain of command, like this military wife Karen who demanded salutes and ended up getting mocked.

Maybe he had a tough night of sleep the night before. An unfortunate many of us have been there at one point or another during a job.

Well, this guy's face when he gets awoken from his restful slumber speaks for anyone who has ever been caught catching some zzz's on the job.

Military Wife Karen Demands Salutes, Gets Mocked

It's important to give credit where credit is due, and that includes withholding credit where it isn't. This Karen earnestly wanted the salutes owed to the sticker on her car, so everyone went ahead and started paying respect. To the sticker. It's a nice bit of refreshment when entitled Karens don't get the absurd things they want, like when this husband flipped out on a Karen military-style or when this tech support employee called a lying Karen's bluff.

Man Tells Girlfriend To Stop Making TikToks About Them

Even though this guy's girlfriend might be putting together those TikToks out of the kindness of her heart, that doesn't mean that it's also not generating a whole lot of flack for the poor guy. The dude's already just trying to muddle through a reasonably peaceful life as a soldier on a military base. Last thing he needs is to get continually roasted by fellow soldiers on his base, for the ridiculous TikToks his girlfriend keeps churning out. Maybe if she just steered the focus away from their relationship, and put it on other stuff, it'd work out a bit better for everyone. 

Man tells his girlfriend to stop making TikToks about their relationship | AITA telling my girlfriend she needs stop making Tiktoks as they're so embarrassing?

Ex-Military Nurse Gets the Drop on Karen Boss

Karen totally had it out for this nurse and made every effort she could to give them a hard time, but they didn't give up. In the end it was Karen who had to face the music. For another instance of a disruptive workplace Karen, here's a Karen who threw away an expensive cake and inspired the office to fight back.

Old Man Gets Carded, Has Boss Response

Some people like being carded because it makes them feel young. Other people hate it because it's a hassle. This person decided to ID a guy who likely didn't need to be ID'd, and the response was one you wouldn't expect. For a distinctly different ID checking story, here's a Karen who wanted her ID checked, but it turned out to be expired.

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.

Looks like this Master Sergeant got what he deserved. There's something too sweet about a military revenge. It could be the fact that these particular revenges incorporate a nice dose of malicious compliance. For some more military revenge gold check out this Staff Sergeant that micromanaged the logistics department getting a reality check in the best way.
