Sketchy Business Gets Called Out, Accuses Freelancer of Being a "Shyster"

Here we have a business trying to get a dude to work on a "trial basis" essentially giving them the ability to fire him and take credit for anything he does for them. Just so happens that like any other entitled folk, they aren't happy about it. What a bunch of gagoots. And saying you're "willing" to not pay someone is almost like if someone tried to Jedi mind trick you without using the force so it's just a jackass in a bathrobe waving his hands around. For some true shyster behavior, here's the entitled mom of 4 who tried to swindle her babysitter.

The reality is that all of us have a hard time completing our jobs successfully at one point or another. We're only human, after all. Fail is always lurking right around the corner. You just hope that your moment of forgetfulness and the failure that results doesn't end up looking like a whole branch of a bank being left open for any criminal to cruise in and take a crack at cracking open that safe. Of course this is the internet, and people are always searching for new ways to drive their clout up. Maybe this is staged.

Company Continually Demands Password, Tech Support Says No, Wild Revelation Ensues

Hopefully at least someone involved in these wild series of conversations felt nothing short of immense gratitude over the fact that their business wasn't completely destroyed by a user that had the wherewithal to try out the password assigned to every user. It sounds like the company got by purely because nobody ever honestly thought that the password could be so obvious. Somehow, that whole approach to security seems like it can work sometimes. Just a bit of a gamble. For another ridiculous tech support tale check out the time that a customer thought that the internet runs on magic

A company continually demands their password from tech support, tech support can't comply, wild revelation ensues.

Horrible Things Home Inspectors Almost Didn't Notice

Just in case you weren't already aware, home inspectors are at the literal frontlines for when it comes to making sure that new homeowners don't get completely screwed over. It's both highly discouraging and outright remarkable what kinds of nasty things that people will try to get away with when it comes to foregoing repairs on homes that are already treading in dangerous waters. Like that toilet story. Yikes. 

Home inspectors describe the worst things that almost escaped their inspections altogether.

Some people freeze in the face of an adrenaline-charged crisis, and others act in such a way that people and animals' lives can end up being saved. The cousin of TikToker @bakedlikepie certainly assumed the latter more admirable stance. She didn't waste any time with taking care of business. We're just glad that everyone was able to get out of that dicey situation as soon as possible. It even looks like the bear was about to climb back over that wall again. Woof.

It seems as if the world's unfortunately never going to run out of shady landlords trying to pull fast ones on unsuspecting tenants.

Garage Owner Tries To Screw Over Grandpa, Grandpa Buys Garage

Grandpa wasn't playing games. One does not mess with anyone of respectable stature in a small town, without some serious ramifications. Earl clearly underestimated Grandpa's financial assets. We can't imagine how full Grandpa's heart must've been when he showed up to that garage with the local sheriff to break the news to Earl.

Biggest Red Flags People Got During Job Interviews

Not all jobs are made the same. Looking for a job can be a dramatic adventure fraught with personal doubt and harsh self evaluation. It's a moment that inspires many painfully relatable job interview memes. Honestly it's weird that we have to name our own value as people and jockey with employers who would like nothing more than to get as much work out of us as possible for the least amount of compensation possible. Some jobs are definitely better than others, and it's apparent during the interview process. A lot of them are worth a "screw this, I'm out."

So, apparently these monstrously gigantic icicles were falling from high-tension power lines that were located above the fog. As the temperature warmed up these bad boys came falling down like arctic alien missiles or something. These guys were definitely playing it risky.
