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.

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.

Employee Gets Karen Translator Fired For Being Difficult

Wow, after reading through this glorious tale of pro revenge it would seem that this Karen translator was so aggressively clueless that she didn't even realize her job was pretty much useless. If one is able to lock down a paying gig that doesn't actually really carry any weight in a company's profitability, then it's probably wise to not stir up a fuss about someone else who's a big player for the company.
