'I should be getting overtime each time I pick up the phone': Employee demands to be paid for any calls they take outside of work hours

You can tell the hypocrisy of a management decision by how quickly it gets swept under the rug when someone calls them out. A similar phenomenon happens when a bad decision is made; everyone tells them that it is bad. They don't listen until it's too late and then pretend that nothing happened when the inevitable fallout occurs. The phenomenally named Reddit user u/juicybuttfarts, had the former scenario occur when they were told they would have to start paying for their personal phone calls on…

20+ People Share the Subtle Signs That Someone is an A-Hole

If someone is snapping their fingers at waitstaff, shouting down a customer service rep, or abusing a stranger—they're an a-hole—absolutely no question about it; by acting in this way, they have broadcast their character loud and clear to the rest of us. But not all a-holes are quite so blatant; some do an incredible job of disguising themselves as a well-meaning person—a wolf in sheep's clothing—if you will. These people can go undetected for long periods of time, only exposing themselves in s…

'AITA?' Cyclist wonders if they're wrong for blocking traffic in snowy conditions and drawing the rage of drivers

This cyclist posted to Reddit's AITA subreddit in order to see whether or not they were in the wrong for riding in the road instead of in a snowy cycle lane. Now, it's no secret that cyclists are not popular amongst most other motorists and road users, drawing a disproportionate amount of hate and rage in online discussions for the number of them there actually are. There's just something about being mildly inconvenienced while driving that provokes unbridled rage in our minds; it's really diff…

'AITA for not letting my sister's boyfriend use hot sauce?': Boyfriend storms out when Italian family forbids usage of hot sauce

People can get weirdly cult-like over the way they like their food, and it's one of the smallest hills people are consistently willing to die on; there are so many people that have overly strong opinions about and will gatekeep what topping or sauce you should or shouldn't eat on any given food. So what if you like ketchup on eggs? Or hot sauce on Italian food? If you wanna pile mayonnaise and dijon mustard on your linguine, then you go right ahead. I certainly won't be joining you or partaking…

Karen tries to get "excluding" adults only Valentine's Day neighborhood event cancelled because her kids can't come

Everyone is the hero of their own story: Where we see this neighborhood Karen as just that, she sees herself as a vigilante hero fighting for justice—a silent guardian, a watchful protector... a dark knight. Sometimes you die the hero; sometimes, you live to see yourself become the villain—sometimes still, you never were actually the hero in the first place. This Karen took offense to the fact that the neighborhood was throwing a Valentine's Day event for adults only, no kids invited. The Reddi…

'Nobody wanted to go': Pregnant woman wonders if she's the AH for ruining the entire family's dinner reservations with her pizza craving

'Nobody wanted to go': Pregnant woman wonders if she's the AH for ruining the entire family's dinner reservations with her pizza craving

Pregnancy cravings are usually a hall pass for what would otherwise be problematic, antisocial, or just plain old strange food-based behavior. Suppose any other person started aggressively demanding that you get them a pizza from a specific corner store in Brooklyn an hour away, topped with an entire jar of pickles and mustard. You'd probably think that person was certifiably insane . But when the requester is, instead, a person who is growing an entire new person inside of them, we tend to jus…

'I read the book and I'm still gay': Man recalls how he accidentally came out to his ultra conservative college roommates via voicemail from the bookstore

The 90's was such a wild time. Everyone had an answering machine and voicemails were recorded then straight up broadcast in your home, spouting your business out loud to everyone within earshot and that was just a normal, accepted thing. An answering machine wouldn't be a problem if you lived alone, but the moment you live with other people, you share your voicemail (on your land line of course). There's no privacy there. One man, who lived in a big house of dudes when he was a college freshman…
