Manager Fires Third Of Team, Expects Them To Work Harder, It Backfires

This certainly brings to mind the old saying about how people don't necessarily leave bad jobs, but instead they leave bad managers. One bad manager can completely upend an otherwise enjoyable gig. Just picturing the look on this manager's face by the end of these employees' time with the company is enough to get the laughs rolling. Dude must've been beside himself.

Owner's Son Hears the Truth about His Own Ambition

For some reason people get it in their heads that inheriting a business is the exact same thing as taking the huge risks and going the extra mile to start their own business. After getting enough "advice" from his "business owner" friend, this guy came down with some hard truths that internet was ready for. Here are some more cases of wealthy people being wildly out of touch.

Employee Plays Their Aces When Confronted By Company

Man oh man, Dave was just a bit of a sleeper hit in this tale of glorious, malicious compliance. What initially looked like a case of a slacker who couldn't be bothered to get into work on time, and not take an excess amount of breaks, ended up manifesting in a showdown between Dave and the company that cleared him for everything in the first place. Good stuff, Dave.

"Not My Job" Moments of Unpredictable Unprofessionalism

Work is hard. That's why we try our absolute hardest to not try our hardest. These moments of quality unprofessionalism spring forth in the form of misspelled signs, messed up products, extremely curvy highway lines and totally useless staircases to nowhere. And we couldn't have it any other way.

Work Memes to Hide from the Boss

Work. We need to do it to not be hungry and cold, but other than that it's missing some benefits. Depending on their job, most people would rather just sit and be bored. And everyone's attitude at work is a strange combination of trying to do as little as possible while blaming everyone around them for doing as little as possible. It can get rough. At least there are work memes to blow off work steams.

Chad decided to make all the employees situation inconvenient in order to try and save some money, but he ended up costing more money for the company in the end.

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.

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.
