A reddit thread where people share their families deep dark secrets

People Share Their Families Deepest Darkest Secrets

Family secrets are hit or miss. You can either discover something super rad about the people you see during Christmas and Thanksgiving or realize that they really are horrible people deep down. When you're a kid, every piece of new information you learn about your extended family feels like a long-hidden family secret. Even if this is not true by definition, I believe that anything once unknown to you that you learn about your family counts as a family secret. My grandma worked for a TV station…

Reddit thread about a crazy toxic evil boss manager fires employee after going through her purse and finding a job application

Toxic Boss Looks Through Employees Purse, Fires Her After Finding Job Application

So many bosses want excessive access to their employees in manners that cross some boundaries. On the first day of my first restaurant job, I asked one of the assistant managers if I could leave at 9 PM since, on the schedule, my shift ended at 9 PM. He laughed at me, said, “it's good you didn't ask that when the manager was around,” and we continued working. At the time, I felt like such an idiot because I had never had a job before, so I assumed all jobs were like that. Now I just realize thi…

A Reddit story about a teacher who tried to get a child to change out of a leotard because it was deemed "inappropriate"

Creepy Teacher Tries To Make Student Change His Halloween Costume, Mom Stands Up To Her

There is nothing more humiliating in school than being dress coded. I remember being dress-coded by a teacher I once thought was my friend: the middle school theatre teacher. I soon learned that he was nothing of the sort. He made me change from simple black leggings into sweatpants from the 90s, and I was horrified. I don't know what changed in him, but one day he snapped and started ranting about the importance of the dress code and how we need to “dress our age.”

A Reddit story about a crazy boss who demands restaurant employees sign an NDA and not talk about their work for 25 years

Crazy Boss Makes Employees Sign an NDA Saying They Can't Speak About Their Job For 25 Years

One of life's greatest pleasures is being able to complain about a job you hate . If I wasn't able to tell my close friends and family about the annoying customers and often more annoying coworkers at my customer service jobs, then I don't know how I would be able to survive. Even when things weren't so bad at work, it's fun to share work stories. When I worked at a dog bakery, a customer told me she owned a dog funeral parlor. I was so taken aback that all I could say was, “I'm sorry" To that,…

A Reddit story about a male Karen boomer father-in-law getting angry at his son-in-law for tipping at a resturant

Male Karen Blows Up at Son-In Law For Tipping at a Restaurant

Anyone who has worked as a waiter knows that people who don't tip are the worst. In the United States, many waiters only get paid $2 hourly and, therefore, only survive on tips. Some restaurants don't even pay their servers an hourly wage. This is basically common knowledge at this point, so for most people, not tipping is simply out of the question. But there are always those people who get angry for the insistence that they tip. I find that these come from two camps. The first camp is Boomers…

People Get Nostalgic About Things That Were Normal in the '90s But Are Now Obsolete

As a millennial born in the late 1980's, I had the pleasure of witnessing some major cultural shifts, the most prominent being the advent of the Internet. While my early childhood was internet-free, as I got older I was introduced to both the wonders and horrors of the world wide web. And at first, I had to use dial-up internet to enjoy them. The haunting sound of dial-up internet booting up (and the anticipation that came with it) is just one of the many joys kids these days will never underst…

People Share Family Secrets They're Not Supposed to Know

Family secrets can range from being horribly painful to being the juiciest gossip ever concocted . I definitely don't want anyone to have to deal with the trauma of finding out their father has a secret family or their aunt committed vehicular manslaughter in 1992. However, these stories are interesting for a reason. We don't tend to advertise our family's most heinous classified deeds. There's a sense of relief when you learn the family secrets because it can explain many things that were prev…

A Reddit story about a native russian speaker who gets rejected from a job for being "insufficient" in the language.

Russian Interviewee Gets Told Their Russian is "Insufficient" by Job Interviewer Who Couldn't Speak the Language

As someone who took at least five linguistics classes in college, you might call me a language expert. And as such, it's my duty to share a few undeniable truths about language learning that many people do not know. Did you know that if you're a native speaker of a language, congratulations, you are an expert in that language? It doesn't matter if you can't explain the exact reason for conjugations or word order. If you've spoken a language since birth, you will automatically know when somethin…

Workers Share The Worst Things Terrible Bosses Have Ever Said To Them

Employment can be a real piece of work. Being the underling of your boss can go sour quickly. As anyone in the workforce knows, employers are often more than willing to take advantage of their employees because they think they can get away with it. Horrible bosses believe they can squeeze the life out of their workers and continue doing so because they don't think they will ever quit. Who among us hasn't had a boss who watches our every move, making you terrified of making one error to risk bei…

Redditors Discuss What Will Be Nostalgic In 50 Years

60 years ago, retrofuturism was all the rage. Shows like The Jetsons predicted we'd have flying cars with and robot maids by now, but we have nothing of the kind. Predicting the future accurately is really difficult, because unless you're a highly intuitive psychic woman at the local fairgrounds, most of us don't feel confident making definite predictions for how the next couple of decades will go down. With the future of humanity increasingly uncertain, most of us are predicting things in 2072…
