New IT hire forced to take control of the whole system after entire team quits: 'Everyone left the company on my first day'

Most new hires spend their first day getting an overview of their daily responsibilities and meeting the other members of their team. Unfortunately for this IT worker, that calm, chill first day was taken away from them pretty much instantly. It turns out that on this particular employee's first day, they learned that the company used some obscure and outdated software that would take some time to adjust to and understand. Well, time did not seem to be on their side given the fact that the cowo…

Karen loses it over lawn mover price after getting duped by a false ad online: 'Your price is wrong! These are $9.95!'

Don't trust everything you come across online, folks! This male Karen customer did not comprehend that the obviously false advertisement he saw for a lawn mower on social media was, well, not real. We trust the Redditor in this scenario when they claim that this was a poorly Photoshopped ad for a $9.95 lawn mower when in reality, the lawn mowers they were selling at the store cost upwards of $200. Like any entitled customer when they are not given what they want, this Karen lost it. In fact, it…

'Ma'am, you have injected yourself into my life for no good reason': Top Karens of the Week (July 12, 2024)

Heatwaves can make people crazy, but these Karens already were crazy to begin with… Look, when it gets this hot outside, people can be a little rough around the edges. After all, the height of summer means walking down one street and somehow encountering at least eight different scents simultaneously. It means coming into work sweaty and gross. And it means a ton of social obligations, some of which inevitably involve the most annoying people. So let's all give each other a break before we all…

'Finally, justice getting served!': Homeowner spends hundreds of dollars to find source of banging noise, catches entitled neighbor kid kicking house and running away

As kids, many of us indulged in harmless pranks around the neighborhood—ding-dong-ditching, TP-ing, you name it. It was just part of growing up. Now as adults with our own homes, we've come to realize just how irritating these 'innocent' pranks can be. It's like karma has come full circle. However, one recent incident takes the cake in terms of annoyance factor. A particularly entitled kid has been repeatedly kicking his neighbor's house. Yes, kicking it.

Technicians throw a 'you're gone' party after strict boss gets demoted and later fired for ignoring safety procedures: 'We are celebrating you not being around anymore'

Technicians throw a 'you're gone' party after strict boss gets demoted and later fired for ignoring safety procedures: 'We are celebrating you not being around anymore'

Imagine thinking everyone was about to throw you a nice going away party after your resignation was announced, only to learn that the party is really a celebration of everyone not having to deal with you anymore. That's what this boss dealt with after he was demoted and later fired for a variety of reasons, one of which involved ignoring serious safety procedures. He was, at one point, the manager of a national sewer and drain company, and he was known for making his team members' lives a night…

Teacher gets back at principal for having to give a speech to the student body, ends up giving a 90-minute diatribe: 'You wanted me to do the speech, deal with it'

Teacher gets back at principal for having to give a speech to the student body, ends up giving a 90-minute diatribe: 'You wanted me to do the speech, deal with it'

Sometimes, the most rebellious folks in a school are the teachers. Here, we have one teacher who managed to successfully avoid a school tradition for over 30 years at the institution. That silly tradition involved a member of the faculty delivering a speech to the entire student body on significant historical dates. During said speech, the students were also forced to stand still in formation and in silence throughout the duration of the oration. This one teacher, whom the Redditor nicknamed Me…

'If I catch that you were slacking off or lying, you are fired': Law partner demands summer associate to update him on whereabouts at all times, malicious compliance ensues

'If I catch that you were slacking off or lying, you are fired': Law partner demands summer associate to update him on whereabouts at all times, malicious compliance ensues

This is what it looks like when justice is served. This law partner may have been working in the industry for decades, but his outdated way of approaching workplace dynamics became a major problem. It seems like he's the kind of boss who chooses one lowly employee to direct all of his anger and frustration toward, as if there is nothing said person can do to meet his desires sufficiently. Unfortunately for this summer associate , they became the target of all his antics. Most of this unfair tre…

Neighbor gets ultimate revenge on entitled construction workers who constantly break noise rules and steal electricity from his outdoor outlets: 'Cue the whining and complaining'

No one likes the sound of construction in their neighborhood. Sure, it's necessary, but after a long day of work, the last thing you want to come home to is constant hammering and beeping from loud construction equipment. Even worse, when all that noise wakes you up in the morning before you have the chance to snooze your alarm. This guy lives in an area where there are rules for noise. Noise is allowed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and there is no construction or industrial noise on Sundays. Seven in…

Neighborhood kids banned from family treehouse after they leave a mess and mom refuses to step in: '[Their mom] started telling everyone I ruined her kids' summer'

It's not always fair to blame parents for the actions of their children, people are psychologically complex and each child is different and wildly unpredictable in their own way. Even the best of intentions and good parenting doesn't always yield the best results, plus—well, mistakes are just part of growing up and even adults are all still just learning as we go. Still, if you work with kids and meet the parents of a problem child, it becomes immediately clear when the problem is the parents.…

25 moments people realized their partners were not bright: '[He was] 27 years old and didn't brush his teeth on the weekends'

According to the laws of probability, everyone is guaranteed to end up on at least one date with someone who is out of their mind or wildly misinformed. It's about as common as the probability of getting food poisoning. It's going to happen in your lifetime at least once… If you're lucky, you'll have the epiphany that the person sitting on the opposite side of the restaurant table is a moron before there are any notable strings attached. Ideally, you'll catch it on the first date so that neithe…

'Unlimited PTO is a scam': Boss denies employee's vacation despite unlimited PTO in contract, employee stands up for himself

Now that it's the middle of summer, everyone and their mother is trying to take a much-needed vacation. Despite the fact that this happens in every workplace every year, many employers still have yet to come up with a system and workflow that allows for employees to take time off. Instead, employees are often subjected to shame and derision from the moment they put in their requests for PTO to the moment their vacation has finally arrived. Here, we have an employee who works for a startup that…

Male Karen customer demands for data to be deleted and to receive free chargers, employee maliciously complies: 'A shame I no longer [could] send him those chargers'

There is a fine line between a wronged customer advocating for themselves and an entitled one demanding special treatment. If you're a self-aware human, every so often you will find yourself in situations when you come up against the “system” and have to demand to be treated fairly. As you stand up for yourself, you may feel your body contorting into that of a Karen, but if this is a rare occurrence for you, then you're probably not like this customer. This dude thought he could call up the cus…

Accountant forced to cover front desk, coworkers see company salaries on his computer screen, they all quit: 'The other employees were livid'

Accountant forced to cover front desk, coworkers see company salaries on his computer screen, they all quit: 'The other employees were livid'

Here's a good rule of thumb: if an employee is handling confidential information, then it's probably not a good idea to let them do their work out in the open. This accountant tried to warn his new manager that it wasn't a good idea for him to cover the front desk on this particular workday, as he was doing payroll (and was the only person in the company capable of handling payroll). It wasn't that the accountant felt “above it" in any way; he knew that from time to time, the accountants in his…
