Here's another entitled coworker who demanded a party and took all the leftovers. You can't help but be fascinated by the antics of an entitled Karen, like this one who tried and failed to scam a restaurant.

Horrible Coworkers People Had to Endure

Work comes with a distinct set of expectations. As long as people are basically cooperative and don't get on each other's nerves, everyone can walk away happy. But sometimes a person's explosive personality, annoying habits, or smell can get in the way of that. Particularly bad coworkers will even steal lunches or use sonograms to trick their boyfriend.

Employee Asks HR to do Their Job, Reprimand Magically Disappears

As much incentive as people have to do their own jobs, a certain proportion of us have the exact opposite going on. This HR person was trying to do the bare minimum in order to wrongfully reprimand an employee over their timesheets, and it just so happened when everyone had to compile a detailed report, things fell into place. For more work shenanigans, here's an employee who outsmarted HR by citing guidelines as well as an employee who had their wages docked illegally and crushed their boss's dreams.

Company Thinks Employee's Being Dishonest With Time Logging, Learns Otherwise

Sometimes, you can find yourself playing by all the rules in the book, and still you end up getting in trouble. In fact, there are cases where people that are bent on enforcing all the rules to an impossibly strict standard (or the rules might just suck to begin with) only end up being their own worst enemies in the end. One can only imagine what kinds of priceless expressions must've been written on the faces of this employee's bosses'. 

A company assumes that an employee's being dishonest about their time logging, and employee proves otherwise.

Vegan Employee Suggests Coworker Eat Burger Outside

Being basically cooperative, we don't want to step on people's toes. In this case there's an employee eating a burger in a designated eating space, and their coworker happens to not like that. Compromise is important, but it's also important that people agree on what "compromise" means. Prickly attitudes transcend dietary preference, like this entitled uncle who demanded a meat meal at a vegan wedding.

Company Won't Hire Employee Directly, They Live To Regret It

The most mind boggling part about this scenario might be the fact that the boss had the audacity to call and ask questions about something their ex employee used to do for the company before they were asked to leave the company.

Supervisor Demands Employee Use Lint Roller Before Meeting

It sounds like this supervisor had their hands full when it came to trying to enforce some kind of universal standard for how employees should present themselves at virtual meetings. These are strange and tumultuous times, no doubt. And some folks are certainly having a harder time muddling through this time than others. With that being said, it sounds like Annie might've pushed the boundaries a bit too far, in terms of what the company expected from her. But you be the judge on whether or not this supervisor was ultimately in the wrong.
