Cleaner Services An Entire Apartment, Finds Out It Doesn’t Belong To His Client

The golden rule of cleaning is that it's all about good old fashioned elbow grease. Use the right products and put in the effort and there's not all that much that can go wrong. That being said, this rule only stands when you are cleaning the place that you're meant to be. You might think this isn't an easy mistake to make — but that's not so much the case when you're a professional cleaner, as Louis Angelino III found out.

In a pair of viral videos posted recently under his TikTok username @stayscrewy, the New Jersey resident explained that he cleans the apartments of his friends for extra money. One of them asked if he would extend his services to the home of a colleague, who told him he could let himself in with a key under the doormat. He followed instructions, cleaned the whole apartment and fed the cat too, only to be messaged by his client wondering where he was. 

Angelino had gone into the wrong apartment, which led to an amusing string of messages with its owner who apologized for the mess as they were doing renovations. Joking that he had become "the cleaning fairy", they even complimented him on a job well done and enquired and the price of his services if they ever needed a cleaner again. It may have been a lot of effort to put in for some free advertising, but it seems like it did the (unintentional) job.

Woman Applies For Job In Beauty Boutique, Outs The Owner After They Accidentally Send Her Insulting Email

There are few parts of life that suck more than job searching. As if finessing your resume and prepping for endless rejections wasn't torture enough, you have to submit yourself to the judgment of managerial jerks who decide whether you get to pay rent this month or not. 

In a TikTok posted on Thursday, Gracie Lorincz explained how she had applied to be a brand representative for Ava Lane Boutique and had been accidentally cc'd into an email from the company's VP, Chuck DeGrendel. In it, he questions if his colleague is sure he should interview her as she is "not that cute". 

Her outing of the unflattering interaction soon went viral, leading to people bombarding their Instagram and Google Play with negative comments and reviews. It led to a tearful public apology from DeGrendel on Facebook Live, where he claimed his family's contact details had been shared and that they had even received death threats. 

Although it's not illegal to discriminate against a job applicant based on their perceived attractiveness, it definitely leaves a bad taste to think that employers can choose to be this shallow. However, such a dramatic mass response probably wasn't that helpful for how Lorincz felt about herself, or encouraging Ava Lane to change their hiring practices. Social media is a powerful tool for change, but sometimes that change doesn't happen in the most productive of ways.

'Not My Job' Moments Of Creative Incompetence

Every now and then we see someone that has actually gone out of their way to avoid doing something that is above their pay grade - or below it. And we can't help but almost admire them. The "Not my job" attitude is one that exudes healthy self-worth, and enviable determination. These 50 instances are some of the more amusing (and impressive) times people just "noped" their way out of responsibility. We hope this is a skill we can learn someday.

Horrifying Thread Details Run-in With Angry Retail Karen

Pretty much anyone who's worked a customer-facing job can tell you that people are the absolute worst. For every normal interaction you have, it's guaranteed it will be balanced out by someone else being a complete and utter jerk for no reason. 

Some working environments prove worse than others, though. On Twitter, @michaelharriot went into detail about the worst job he's ever had. To no one's surprise, it was in retail. The story that follows is an outrageous ride through stock mishaps, organizational chaos and worst of all, entitled Karen customers who take things way too far. Repeat after me: there is no $38 shirt on earth worth getting this mad for.

Well-Mannered Waitstaff Memes For And About Hospitality Workers

There aren't many common jobs out there that require quite as much effort as being a server. Having to multitask through busy shifts with often difficult customers is enough to stress out even the most level headed person — and as if that wasn't enough, there's the scramble for tips requiring a permanent smile throughout it all. 

Not only this, but the pandemic hasn't helped with either job security or protecting the health of the nation's hospitality workers. 

It's all the more reason to recognize their efforts today, on National Waitstaff Day. To celebrate, here are some memes that sum up the hospitality experience for workers and customers alike.

Employee Maliciously Complies with Boss' Absurd Productivity Metric

As American cities begin to open up their offices, many workers are lamenting the fact that they'll no longer be able to work from home. While some people undoubtedly benefit from having a dedicated physical work zone, others are quite capable of managing their own productivity. But I suppose if managers had no one to manage, their jobs would become obsolete. 

Redditor u/ythafuckigetsuspend was pretty annoyed when their employer revoked the option to work from home after they appeared to go 'idle' in the work chat too often. Even despite the fact that the KPI data suggested they were a better worker at home, management decided that being AFK for too long proved otherwise. And so, the disgruntled redditor complied…maliciously. Keep scrolling to read about OP's delightfully clever method for appearing active in the chat for eight hours straight. Many responders in the thread had similar tricks. Make sure your boss doesn't see this!

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.
