35 Bleakly Relatable Work Memes For 9-5 Warriors

Another day, another dollar. Sometimes it really does feel like we're all working our whole lives away. Whether you're working from home, in an office, at a bar, driving drunk people around, in a grocery store—it's essentially all the same sh*t if you think about it. Just a dull, thankless hell making more wealth for the big boss as the bills and debt pile up. Well you know what, there's one thing they can't take from us: memes. Scroll on the clock or text 'em to your coworkers. Hell, maybe even take it to the next level and make some work memes of your own in those moments where you've just had enough. 

In the words of Dolly Parton, "9 to 5! For service and devotion, you would think that I would deserve a fair promotion. Want to move ahead, but the boss won't seem to let me. I swear sometimes that man is out to get me."

Couriers Share Their Strangest Delivery Stories & Encounters

Even before the pandemic, the amount of people using delivery services like Uber Eats and Door Dash has skyrocketed over the years. It's amazing the price people will pay for a little extra convenience. For the most part, the job is probably pretty boring and annoying, but you've gotta wonder what strange encounters couriers have experienced over the years. One redditor asked delivery service workers to share some of the weirder things that happened on the job, and the responses were pretty entertaining—these workers have seen everything from BBQ rib orgies to basement puppy parties. We've collected some of our favorite anecdotes for your amusement.

20 Retail Workers Share Their Most Ludicrous Customer Requests

There are very few jobs as thankless as that of a retail worker. Having to juggle your regular responsibilities and entitled people should be an Olympic sport. This Twitter thread from last week is proof that everyone needs to work retail at some point so we can avoid the horror stories these poor people had to endure.

Frustrating Service Industry Tales From Disgruntled Servers

Picture this: It's several months into the global pandemic and the governor has decided to allow indoor dining again. You're considered one of the 'lucky ones' because you got to keep your minimum wage job as a server in a restaurant, and although taking to-go orders only has been pretty chill, the mountain of bills that looms over you everyday has you really missing those tips. Strangely, customers don't feel the need to tip if it's take-out, but they'll call you a hero as if you volunteer to be an 'essential worker' and don't actually have rent to pay. Although you've got a lot of qualms about serving customers again, you feel like you don't really have a choice. You reassure yourself that your customers will be respectful and follow social distancing rules. Maybe they'll even leave a decent tip—you're working in the middle of a health crisis, after all. You don't have the benefit of working safely from home, and any decent person will understand the risk you're taking, right? Oh how naive you are.

Your first customers arrive on the day of reopening and to your dismay, it's a group of ten and they're already drunk, masks hanging down under their noses. They immediately ignore the social distancing policy notices posted on every surface of the restaurant and start pushing tables together. They ignore your pleas to respect your coworkers and other patrons. Your manager doesn't help you. You're pissed off. After hours of rudeness and belligerence, finally the assh*le table asks for the bill. They spend another half hour drunkenly squabbling over the check before demanding that you split it ten ways. You somehow muster up the last bit of civility deep within you and smile through the rage. Finally, they leave. It's the moment you've been dreading. Again, you try and reassure yourself—surely they tipped at least 15%. They ordered bottomless margaritas. They stayed for five hours. Surely they tipped...You pick up the pile of checks and examine the first one. Nothing. Then the next. Nope. Your stomach drops as you get to the last check and read the word 'zero' scrawled onto the tip line. Dejected and exhausted, you look at the clock. Five more hours of your shift to go. The next group walks in.

Whether this scenario feels familiar or not, it's important for everyone to understand just how shitty it is to be a server sometimes, especially during a plague. Not only does treating service industry workers like literal garbage make their lives a living hell, it poisons the soul of the evil-doer. Treat workers with respect and don't forget to tip—it's not that damn hard. Alternatively, if being a jerk is the only thing you know how to do and you truly believe that treating people like dirt is a valid personality trait, you can simply stay at home. The restaurant industry doesn't need mean customers in order to thrive. We've collected some frustrating experiences that servers shared on r/TalesFromYourServer. Hopefully these stories will either humble people who frequently dine out or give solace to those who hate their jobs

Retail Warriors Share Nightmarish Customer Stories

Retail workers have undoubtedly been one of the most under-appreciated class of workers since the dawn of mass consumerism. Being polite and helpful to rude customers all day for a wage that barely covers living expenses is soul-sucking enough when there isn't a series of commercial holidays intersecting with a global pandemic. Since the dreaded Black Friday is upon us, we thought we'd share a handful of retail horror stories from the subreddit r/TalesFromRetail for all the brave wage warriors out there. You're not alone and we feel for you.

Twitter Thread: The Insanity Of Working At A Grocery Store During The Holidays

It doesn't take a genius to know that working retail during the holidays is an absolute shitshow. But Twitter user @dylan_thyme took to the site to share how insane it is to work in a fancy grocery store in particular. From shows of extreme entitlement, to people who are apparently willing to throw away money, it's a thread filled with trashy atrocities - and of course, the token Karens. Let's all resolve to be extra nice to grocery store workers this year. They deserve it.

Twenty-Nine Times People Were Trolled By 'Customer Service'

We love anyone willing to troll, roast, or deceive people on the internet - as long as they steer clear of bullying. This kind of mischief is pretty much all we have in the prank zone now that so many people are cooped up inside. One of the best trolls of all time, that fake Customer Service account, was actually run by two Georgia comedians. They'd troll some pretty obnoxious people by changing their account's profile photo to whatever business the poor sucker was trying to tear apart. We've put together some of their greatest hits, but damn do we wish these dudes were around for the age of Karen.

Twitter Users Bond Over The Heartless Entitlement Of Patio Diners

Dining outside, in many parts of the United States, is a happy seasonal treat. A chance to take in the sunlight while enjoying a relaxing drink or some good food. But as many cities are reopening following coronavirus lockdowns (some only allowing outdoor dining) Twitter user @fresshel (Helen) felt the need to remind people of how insufferable and entitled patio diners can be. Her June 19th tweet reads:

" Anyone who has worked at a restaurant with outdoor seating already knew tht patio people do not care if u live or die"

While this may sound like an unfair generalization of people who prefer to dine al fresco, it seems that many people who have worked in restaurant and bar service agree with Helen's sentiment. In the tweet's replies, people are sharing horror stories of "patio people" and revealing that a surprising number of sadistic people actually dine in the rain - forcing their servers to get soaked or be escorted with an umbrella. Next time you decide to sit on the patio, remember these people and avoid this entitled behavior. And remember to tip your server.
