They say that safety regulations are written in blood and it gets way worse than a few OSHA-defying safety fails. Big companies don't exactly have your best interests at heart, and there's a whole boatload of evidence from the early 1900s to confirm that. For some less dark history, here's tumblr making history fun.

Employee Nuke Revenges Cult Leader Boss's Business

The emotional manipulation and toxic conditioning was present from the get-go with this "work opportunity." As it turns out, this employee found themselves in the middle of what sounds like a shady MLM ran by an emotionally manipulative cult leader boss with an affinity for using people to further their own gain, while selling them on the idea that it's for the collective good. Apparently this documentary helped the employee piece the disorienting and ultimately deceptive picture together.

Employee Asks For Raise, Company Forbids Employees from Discussing Pay

When the topic of raises came up, this store manager decided to send out a company-wide email forbidding employees from openly discussing their salaries. The problem there is that that violates labor laws, and this genius decided to put their policy into writing. An unfair boss can be the source of drama and justice, like this security guard who go the last laugh or this manager who tried to fire an employee for following the rules.

Bad Grades People Thought Would Ruin Their Lives

Twitter user @PAYOLETTER started a thread on Twitter about bad grades people received during school. Bad grades that they assumed would ruin their lives. It's a funny thing. When in the middle of receiving a bad grade, the mind can leap toward conclusions about the future, things that haven't happened yet, and convince itself that it knows what exactly will come of receiving a bad grade. That sounds like some kind of heightened intelligence with an admirable level of processing power. Where was that during the test? 

Maybe the mind doesn't know what will happen. Maybe it's just a place thoughts pop up. Maybe in the moment of great stress, the "failed grade," and the ensuing thoughts of future scenarios...you can look at those thoughts as just that. Thoughts. Not what is. Are you merely your thoughts or something else, maybe, that can see them as that. An awareness? Isn't it impossible to be something if you're aware of it in the first place?

These people's stories about what they thought would happen after a failed grade vs. what is, certainly contribute toward the reality that what is, can be a damn hard thing to predict.
