HR Makes Salaried Employees Fill Out Time Cards, Costs Them Big

There's an age-old saying that can—although said in many different ways—be summarized as: If you're going to break the rules, don't break two rules at the same time. It's a simple, logical rationalization that boils down to mitigating risks. When you break multiple rules simultaneously, you just multiply your chances of being caught. In addition to that, when you get caught for one… you're probably going to get caught for both—and pay the price for both. There's also the added risk of more peop…

'Take them off and keep them off or leave." All bridesmaids leave after bride demands bridesmaid remove her glasses for entire wedding

People who desire absolute control over a situation love ultimatums. The problem with ultimatums is that the person you're setting the ultimatum with might call you on your bluff, leaving the illusion of any control you had over them shattered—along with the entire relationship. Weddings can be stressful times and leave the couple at the frayed ends of sanity as they try to manifest the perfect day. This can bring the absolute worst out in people, bringing down the facade of their personality a…

'The greatest revenge I could have ever imagined': Jealous landlord gets his own words thrown back in his face years after overcharging tenant

As a renter, you're at the mercy of your landlord.

It's often said that you shouldn't meddle with things you don't understand and, by extension, you shouldn't mess with the people who handle the things that you don't understand either.

After all, we've already established you don't understand that thing, so why are you so certain you've got the upper hand…

Worker gets one over on vindictive HR by following workplace guidelines

It's no secret that the human resource department isn't as benevolent or employee-focused as we might have once been led to believe. At the end of the day, that seems pretty obvious, and we find it hard to believe that the wool could ever be pulled over our eyes. After all, it's in the name . It's an entire department of the company that exists solely to manage and mitigate one of its most costly resources… humans—aka you . Still, HR managers manage to either be the sweetest, most hospitable pe…

This guy wanted a well-done steak but ended up getting roasted himself. There's nothing that can make a man feel small like his own mother. Even the toughest of gangsters know not to cross their mamma. When mom lays down the line and says, "Enough is enough," then you had better quit. This Dad was determined to act out the Applebee's scene in Talladega Nights before his mother stepped in.

'I countersued': Vindictive landlord tries to charge tenant over their deposit, loses big

If there's one thing that makes landlords drool, it's finding a way to keep your deposit, not that they'll actually use that money to fix anything before the next tenant moves in… Hell, the next tenant will be lucky if even their move-in cleaning fee actually gets used to clean the place up before they arrive. (It wouldn't be the first time a cleaning fee ended up in a landlord's pocket.) When things get ugly in a landlord-tenant relationship, it's always going to be the deposit that gets held…

'They tried to nickel and dime me': Tennant ditches out on lease because of dodgy landlord and their cheap tactics

One of the best parts about renting is when you wind up trapped in a terrible house with a useless slug-like landlord, contractually obligated to continue paying a real-life Jabba the Hutt a (significant) portion of your paycheck. At the same time, they do little to ensure they're delivering you a marketable and inhabitable product. In most places, there's only an escape from this entrapment with arduous process or extreme circumstances. Since the landlord often holds a hefty security deposit o…
