Negligent Employee Gives Pokémon League Duties to Random Kid, Kid Gets Back Pay

In this case, one employee who couldn't care less foisted the Pokémon duties onto some random kids, and when management found out they just thought "oh crap we better pay 'em."

Pet Store Employee Stops Karen From Torturing Starfish

Having a saltwater tank isn't as easy as throwing some salt and water together in a jug like it's Kool-Aid and calling it a day. Karen wasn't having all this "responsible pet owner" talk, so this employee stepped in to show her exactly what she'd need to take care of a starfish. Of course, Karen didn't take kindly to this employee who didn't want her to slowly torture a starfish to death. Will the Karen customersof the world ever learn their lesson? Doubtful.

So, usually in metalworking, you'd shape stuff by with a punch or a press. At least that's what Wikipedia says. Wikipedia also says that  hydroforming is the process of shaping metal using water pressure. For materials that are too strong or large for traditional hydroforming, one option is explosive forming, sometimes called explosive hydroforming. That's where the pressure used to shape metal comes from, you guessed it, an explosion. This ends our remedial knowledge of the complex processes involved with metalworking. Just watch the thing go bang.

Safety Failures Of OSHA-Defying Boldness

Sure, the get 'er done mentality is an effective way to motivate yourself to complete tough jobs and long hours, but when it's used by your boss to justify lowering you on a backhoe over the side of a cliff, you're entering safety failure territory. Anyone with a physical job is regularly tempted or ordered to take scary shortcuts in the form of safety failures that would make OSHA faint. Gotta admit, jacking a car up with a plastic chair doesn't really seem worth it.

Man Follows Contracted Hours, Team Follows Suit, Management Caves

Man, oh, man, it sounds like this particular management team was terribly detached and clueless. They continued to send in uniformed representatives, as their company was proactively losing money, and wasted a whole lot of time when they could've actually resolved the issue. All that it took to set the whole thing in motion was one employee strictly following their contracted hours.
