Genius HR Karen Calls Coworker 'Dumb Blonde' in Front of Her Boss

I have never been discriminated against on the ground of being blonde. A blessed bottle of bleach touched my scalp for the first time when I was twenty, and I've been addicted ever since. Being blonde has gotten me nothing but compliments and a couple of wild assumptions that it's natural, which is absurd considering the brown caterpillars that are my eyebrows. "Dumb blonde" is one of those playground insults. It can be exceedingly hurtful to kids who are called that, but kids usually grow out…

A story about a Boomer getting yelled at for telling a young job hunter that young people are too lazy to get jobs

Boomer Accuses Younger Job Hunter of Laziness, Gets Yelled At In Public

Anyone who has applied for a job in the past couple of years knows it's a very tricky process. So much goes into job hunting, and it's not as simple as being the most qualified person for a position. Job interviews sometimes feel like they're taking place in an alternate reality; how you articulate yourself must be carefully curated to make you sound like a good worker. It's unnatural, but it's a bare necessity if you're going to get a job. With remote work becoming far more common, competition…

Boss Accuses Employee of 'Quiet Quitting' Because He Works a Mere 40 Hours a Week

“Quiet quitting” is one of those phrases that's wiggled into our vernacular seemingly overnight. Initially, quiet quitting was when employees would slack off at their jobs, essentially waiting to get fired. S

Weird Company Bans Salary Negotiation Because It 'Benefits People With Privilege'

Salary negotiation is one of the most challenging parts of getting a new job. It can feel tough to assert yourself and fight for what you're worth, especially when the company is lowballing you. If you can stand your ground for a better salary, it can significantly help your career and your quality of life in the long run. Unfortunately, not all companies are open to negotiating salaries, even from candidates with excellent experience. Still, companies that aren't the most accepting of negotiat…

Frustrating Thread Reveals That Boomers Are Still Disgracefully Out of Touch

We're sad to report that the boomers still don't understand that things have changed in the past fifty years. It's as if nothing has happened outside of their lived experiences. “I made $10 an hour in 1970 and bought my own house by the time I was 30! If I did it, so can you.” You can try and explain to grandpa the concept of housing price inflation, or that $10 in 1970 is equivalent in purchasing power to about $77 today (which would be an annual salary of $148,379), but there's a strong chanc…

Parents Demand Rent From Daughter After Siblings Complain That She Earns Too Much Money, She Moves Out

Listen, there's nothing inherently wrong with a parent asking their adult offspring for rent money, but if that kid decides to move out as a result, the parents can't get mad. In the case of redditor u/LetterheadMaterial93 , it's not like she wasn't contributing around the house. In fact, she and her siblings pulled their weight in chores in exchange for a roof over their heads. But when OP started buying nice things for herself with the money she earned at her job, her siblings started getting…

Story about a worker who gets fired for saying no to boss when asked to come in for a shift he wasn't scheduled for

Employee Terminated For Refusing to Work When He Wasn't Scheduled

One of the best parts about being a salaried employee is that you don't get called in for random shifts on the weekend. At least I don't, but y'all stay safe out there. There's nothing worse than preparing for a nice long day of doing nothing than receiving a call from your manager. When I worked at a dog bakery, I was always the person saying “yes” to picking up this one girls shifts. If it sounds like I was being a pushover, it's because I was a pushover. For me, it was hard to leave money on…

'Company got caught lowballing me': Director mistakenly CCs applicant on shady post-interview email

Interviewing for jobs can be such a thankless experience. In this day and age, it's almost guaranteed that hundreds of people are applying for the same gig that you are - and if you know anything about statistics and probability, the odds are (generally) not in your favor. Unless you're a nepotism baby, of course. But for the rest of us, it's hard knowing you might not be a company's top pick, or even their third, for that matter. But the last thing you want is to actually witness a conversatio…

Hospital Forces Nurse To Work While Sick With Food Poisoning, Malicious Compliance Ensues

Perfect attendance awards in school are a very tricky beast. There were definitely years in school where I never missed a day, and I was encouraged by my family and teachers to be proud of that. However, I didn't have perfect attendance in 2nd grade because I was particularly special or gifted. I only had perfect attendance because I was lucky. I didn't get sick, and no external factors kept me from school for those days. I accomplished nothing substantial, and yet I got praised for it. Concept…
