Boss declines pregnant employee's requests for accommodation a week before her due date, HR steps in and grants her leave immediately

It's often said that HR is never on your side, but is merely there to maintain an equilibrium that will prevent the organization from opening itself to vulnerability or liability. They are there to manage the “human” resources of the company, and—well, that's you . Still, in instances where you're dealing with someone in the organization—be it a boss, coworker, or other party—who is so incredibly off base with their actions or reasoning, then it just makes sense to go to HR and help them see yo…

'You’re obviously not that sorry': Entitled woman confronts pregnant shopper over parking space

This pregnant woman wasn't afraid to confront another driver . And luckily for her, a bunch of bystanders also had her back. Going through a pregancy changes everything, and the last trimester can be the trickiest for a lot of new parents.

She might need to sit down frequently—carrying a whole baby around in your body gets tiring. And in general, pregnant women are sup…

Karen barks at $250 bill, shoves manager in front of on-duty officers: '[They] immediately cuff her'

This Karen literally did all of this to herself. First, she marched into a popular Mexican restaurant with approximately 15 teenagers behind her, threw down her credit card, and let all these kids order whatever they wanted. Her abrasive behavior had already ticked off the manager and the other employees at the restaurant, so they were happy to see these teens order more than their fair share. By the time the manager gave the Karen a $250 bill, things started to get way more heated. For one, sh…

‘She's going [to] the hospital to be induced 12 hours from now’: Woman gets fired the day before she has a baby, internet reacts

Does anyone else smell a lawsuit coming? It’s pretty hard to imagine sillier circumstances to fire someone than to fire a pregnant employee mere hours before they are going to give birth. Perhaps this boss has some extremely backward sense of right and wrong, but you would think someone else at this company would inform him that pregnant women are a protected class. What’s even crazier is that this woman’s husband also works at the same company, so now there is just bad blood all around that to…

‘I was so fed up’: Guy keeps parking in spot designated for woman who is 8 months pregnant, HOA doesn't allow towing him, so mom-to-be takes matters into her own hands

Everyone knows not to upset a pregnant woman. Even if you don't know, you should be able to deduce from the state that woman is in that you need to be extra careful around her. It's a common thing in many species, not just humans, that a pregnant mama-to-be will mess you up if you cross her. A very real example is this Reddit story . This mom-to-be was pregnant in the height of heat during the summer days. She had a designated parking spot in front of her townhouse so she wouldn't have to walk…

'I wish I was joking': Honest confidante rebukes the baby names chosen by her pregnant friend, saving the child from a lifetime of embarrassment

One of the huge downsides of having 8 billion people on the this Earth is that there are only so many 'unique' names to chose from. With 1 out of 25 Americans named 'John', it makes you wonder how many parents feel forced to think of baby names that are out of the box. Well, with the turn of the century, it seems like a lot of people have gotten extremely creative with baby names– and not in a good way.

'Unleash your inner lawsuit': Man gets promptly fired after telling management that his girlfriend is pregnant, capturing the entire lawsuit-worthy Zoom call on video

There are a lot of things in life that are unethical, but not technically illegal. For example, passing gas in an elevator just before getting off at your floor is disgusting, but not actually a crime. Similarly, when people sing so loud at a concert they overpower the sound of the actual band playing (I'm looking at you, Swifties), that's not technically illegal either. However, there are a few instances where illegality and wrongful behavior come together...

'I didn't mean to say it out loud, but COME ON': Teenager gets in trouble for honest reaction to news that her sister is pregnant again

Sometimes, we say things we absolutely shouldn't but we are human, and we just can't help ourselves. In a few of these instances, you may be able to argue your way out of trouble, but if you've hurt someone's feelings (especially those of a close family member), good luck trying to talk yourself out of it. In this story , we have a teenager whose older sister has six children. Now, six is a lot, especially if you have to frequently rely on the help of your mother and sister because of all that…

Some people have dreamed about their wedding day since they were a little kid. Childhood dreams of Cinderella dresses, clinking champagne flutes, and a black-tie affair can sail through a kid's mind without a second thought, but in the deep south, an outdoor, summertime, black-tie event is a little more complicated to plan than an enchanting Disney-style ball. Guests could lose more than a glass slipper in those hot n' sweaty conditions...

You gain 50lbs, your feet swell, your back hurts, and strangers are always trying to touch your belly– but what a lot of people forget is particularly exhausting, is that you have to carry on with regular life anyways!
