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.

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.

Management Illegally Bans Overtime Pay, IT Gets It All Back

Horrible management always seems to get it in their heads that they can make people work crazy hours without having to pay for it.

Smooth Scotsman Turns Wrong Number Into Job Interview

The guys used some silken words to get that coveted interview spot right from under Annette's nose.

Company Won't Replace One Computer, Wastes Thousands of Dollars

There are few companies where management actually knows what's going on. This person had a nearly unusable computer that doubled as a server, and since no one wanted to actually do anything about it, the company felt the pain for the next long while. Weird how some stuff just slips through the cracks. In an opposite but similar vein, here's a guy who improved company efficiency but had that disbanded by management. For an IT triumph, here's a time when management illegally banned overtime pay but IT got it all back.

Unprofessional "Not My Job" Moments of Failure

Most of us will do whatever it takes to avoid doing our actual jobs. For some, it's almost a challenge to see how much we can get away with not doing. Our drive to not do any actual work leads to some impressive "not my job" moments of professional ineptitude. Toilets get installed sideways, billboards get crammed with typos, and things go awry in these "not my job" moments of professional failure.

Man Tells Girlfriend She Doesn't Work Hard Enough For Salary

Yikes. When it comes to the kinds of things that you should absolutely never say to your partner (or anyone, really) this dude just added a new one to the pool. If you have a partner who is rocking a badass salary, and then you proceed to try and knock them down by trashing them for not working hard enough, you are in dire need of a little life assessment time. Clearly, this dude's got a whole lot of toxic nonsense boiling underneath the surface.

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."

Times People Said "Screw This" And Noped On Out

There are moments in our lives when, despite everyone's best efforts to keep us around, the benefits clearly don't outweigh the risks, and we have that freeing moment when we realize we can just leave. It can be a bad job or sketchy situation. Sometimes it just take a "screw this, I'm out" moment for us to notice that it's probably a better idea to set out for greener pastures.

Entitled And Incompetent Coworker Gets Rightful Comeuppance

Nothing quite flares the temper like realizing that you're working alongside someone who is clearly not qualified for the job, and is only there due to glaring favoritism. In this particular scenario it sounds like she was bound to fail big time and beyond repair. It was really just a matter of time. So if anything maybe this tale's a mixture of karma and pro revenge.

Dad Fires His Son for Stealing from Work

Nothing adds to the entitlement just like the whole "boss's kid" mentality. At least the dad went and did something about it. The kid even tried to frame another employee. For some more work-related foibles, here are the fastest ways people's co-workers got fired. For another kid stepping way over his bounds, here's a manipulative son who tried to sell his mom's house and cancelled her job interview.

Dad Gets Fired For BS Reason, Plays The Long Game

This one definitely qualifies as a pro revenge. The dad apparently got fired for a total BS reason, but ended up being the one in charge in the long run, and on top of that was able to take the extended family on a cruise!

Karen Manager Orders Employee to Print a Video File, Gets Fired

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.
