Boss Demands Demolished Office, Gets More than That

There's a right way and a wrong way to demolish an office, and it's looking like these guys took the wrong way. Maybe they shouldn't have taken their boss's orders so literally, or could have planned better. Either way what they got was a big headache. This one didn't come down on anyone, but it's not uncommon for a boss to orchestrate their own downfall.

Times Students' Parents Obviously Did Their Work

Sometimes people think it's the students that ae the most challenging part of a teacher's job. That's only true most of the time. It can actually be the parents trying to interfere too much with their kid's education. Sometimes a teacher can just look at a finished project and go, "looks like dad did a great job." Sometimes it goes the other way. Sometimes teachers have no faith in students but they succeed anyway, like this student who won an art contest to spite their rude teacher.

Work Memes to Slow Down Productivity

The working life can inspire some immense feelings of dread, but at least a lot of people are going through it, so it's not like everyone's alone in it all. That's why it's nice to have some work memes for the hustle as well as the bustle. With all the boring coworkers and dumb customers, sometimes we need work memes to blow off work steams.

Fastest Ways People's Co-Workers Got Fired

It's nothing short of a miracle that these people were able to weasel their way into getting jobs in the first place. You've got the dude with the next level situational awareness, who decided it'd be a good move to light up a smoke next to a bunch of hay. Or you've got the other prime job candidate who was hired, and then proceeded to just never show up. It's as if some people get hired just to see how long it'll take them to get fired. Try hard enough, and it really won't take too much time to get canned at all. 

Check out another entertaining AskReddit thread that's about the ways workers got their bosses fired.
