Entitled Influencer's Dad Disputes Contest, Ruins Entire Project

All it had to be was a dumb marketing project with some giveaway stuff, but one "do you know who my father is" type just had to be involved. Overzealous and aggressive parents speaking on behalf of their children can lead to a lot of pain and suffering down the road, like this parent who blamed a teacher for their own kid not being in virtual class.

Guy Buys Suit of Armor, Ends Up Roleplaying as Manager

If only there could always be a threatening guy in a suit of armor for every single negative customer encounter. It's probably hard not to listen to anyone standing 6 foot 5 in a suit of armor. Sometimes the ol' manager switcheroo works out, like this entitled customer who came in after close and got kicked out by the "manager." It must feel pretty good to be someone's literal knight in shining armor.

Management Pays Rent On Equipment, Wastes Tens of Thousands

Anyone who's ever been tempted by anything at Rent-A-Center has done the math and decided it's a stupid idea to rent a TV, so why are corporate big wigs getting away with the business version of the same thing? It seems like almost anyone would be better at budgeting than these suits. For another genius move by management, here's a time management illegally banned overtime pay and IT got it all back.

Tumblr Thread: Becoming an Ant God

It stands to reason that if you saw a circle of ants chanting your name, you wouldn't just ignore it. Well, you shouldn't ignore ants in general; that's how you get ants. But still, if they formed a tiny circle and started praising you, it would be hard to let go. This tumblr thread takes the premise to its logical conclusion of roommate disputes being fought through the lens of ant holy war. Here's another good one about tumblr imagining aliens being fought off by wildlife.

Teacher Uses Gummy Bears To Fight The Power

Here's a teacher who used what they had on hand to change a bad situation into a better one. Teachers span this wide gradient of "life-changingly good" to "future-shatteringly bad," so it's no wonder students have hilarious misconceptions about teachers. When a teacher goes off the rails, there's no telling what they'll do, like this weird junk said by teachers or this teacher who got a pink slip and chose all the least qualified students for a school project.

You don't need to know much about computers to understand that being asked to print a video file is a stupid endeavor, but this manager wasn't having it. Apparently this was the last thing on top of a pile of other complaints that led to her professional demise. Sometimes managers really don't know whats up, leading to stories like this employee who robbed a museum to prove a point. Here's one about an Aunt Karen who offered exposure for art payment and her scam fell apart.

Boss Expects Work Without Pay, Gets What He Pays For

This boss wanted a manager that he didn't have to pay extra. Instead of going along with the BS, this employee decided enough was enough and let the boss get exactly the amount of work he was paying for. Incompetent managers have a way of biting themselves in the ass, like this incompetent manager who forbid overtime. Here are more people's "screw this, I'm out" stories.

Epic Tumblr Story Captures Earth's Wildlife Through Aliens' Eyes

So basically, it's stories like the gem that we have with this one from Tumblr that prove that earth might seem easily conquerable, but there's an unanticipated punch waiting to be unleashed underneath the surface.

Kid Infiltrates Walmart By Wearing Neon Vest

Anyone who has worked anywhere knows that you could walk into just about any business or institution carrying a ladder, holding a clipboard, wearing hard hat or hi vis jacket and not be questioned. It's not necessarily a good idea to impersonate staff, and it's probably some version of illegal. But as this kid attests, it can be done. For a while at least. For some rule bending, here are some loopholes people were able to exploit for years. For more Walmart junk, here are some of the weirdest things Walmart employees witnessed.

Bartender Gets Musical Revenge On Entitled Customer

This guy thought he had his own stranglehold on the vibe, but dammit, that's not how the world works. The people deserve to hear "Who Let the Dogs Out" and other classics.
