'You better believe I wore the "baby sharp" hat everyday': Clever line cook gets snubbed by a humorless manager, makes their own fun by wearing the joke on their uniform

It's important to keep some semblance of 'fun' in the workplace because that's the only thing that's getting you (and your coworkers) through your workday.

Managers will do just about anything to cover a wayward shift in the fast food industry. With corporate goons breathing down their neck and a 70-hour week on their horizon, it's no wonder managers become desperately manic when an employee no-shows or calls out sick. They're at their brink. However, the manager in our next story proved to be more manic than desperate...

There's nothing worse than being an employee of a high-end retail store.

'Give 0% tip, get 0% service': Casino server gets payback on a notorious no-tip customer, causes 'tipping culture' controversy in the comment section

Every business with an iPad as their POS system will flip their little screen around to their customers they sheepishly say, ‘It’s just going to ask you a few questions'… Sorry, but it's hard to justify tipping 35% on a $7 coffee, but the social pressure of the barista with an imperious stare, a septum piercing, and electric pink hair is tough to ignore.

Nepo baby embarrasses mom at work via malicious compliance: 'Want me to interrupt you while you're talking to your boss? Ok!'

Nepotism is here to stay in this world, so we might as well enjoy the tomfoolery it can create in the workplace. While I personally would never want to work with the mother or daughter in this story, at the same time, I can applaud them for at least embracing that absolute professionalism in the workplace is kind of impossible to master. To fully pretend like the Redditor in this story is not the manager's daughter is just weird. To fully argue like they do in private at the office would, of co…

In the workplace, employees walk a fine line between professional relationships and their personal lives– however, there's always that one coworker who doesn't know the difference.
