Starbucks Employee Despairs At Deluge Of Orders

These are strange times for the world's most famous coffee chain. Beating the pandemic downturn, profits are up and business is booming — but their clientele has been turned upside down. Jostling for attention among the commuters and Karens in training are a newer, younger customer base armed with baffling custom orders and supposed secret menu items. 

It's a predicament that is impacting those on the front line the most, as a recent video has illustrated. A TikTok shared by Starbucks employee a_problem_like_maria has gone viral after showing her co-workers struggling to keep up the amount of orders coming through their system only ten minutes after opening. Commenters offered plenty of sympathy, with many also employed by the company grimacing at the thought of such a busy day at work. One thing's for sure, making coffee for a living sure isn't an easy ride. Maybe next time, pass on the extra pump of something and make a barista's day a little easier.

Workers Fantasize About Funemployment in Relatable Thread

In 2020, the U.S. unemployment rate skyrocketed to 14.8% due to the Covid-19 lockdown. Although the country is slowly recovering, many are still struggling to find reliable work. But is it the 'work' itself that civilians desire or is it self-determination and financial security? Of course it's the latter. The stress that comes with unemployment is hellish when you don't have a safety net, but for those fortunate enough to be in the position to say 'hell no' to work for an extended period of time, the experience can be absolutely joyous.

Comedian @_RobertSchultz often tweets about the painfully relatable annoyances of working full time and his recent quip about 'gaps in the resume' hit home for a lot of people. Spending time away from work while maintaining financial freedom can open one's life up to an array of new possibilities and everyone should get the opportunity to experience an extended stress-free break. Let's get those 'f*ck it' funds started!

People Share Heinous Work Stories They Wish Were Jokes

While some people spent April Fool's cataloguing all the brand jokes and PR stunts (ahem, Tubbycoin), DSA Cleveland decided to ask Twitter to share work experiences they wish were jokes. We're guessing that this had something to do with Amazon being under fire for their inhumane work conditions, but there's something about hearing horror stories from other industries that really puts things into perspective. The experiences range from absolutely heartless, to the kind of acceptable shamefulness that people experience every damn day. While we take no pleasure in sharing these bleak realities, it's kind of wrong to keep ignoring the f*ckery that we all deal with to pay the bills.

'Unpopular Opinion' About Working Weekends Gets Roasted by the Internet

Another day, another terrible Twitter take. The state of how we work has been a major topic of discussion as the world attempts to return to normalcy as Covid-19 seems to be less of a threat for many countries. There have been many think-pieces and Twitter threads about working remotely and fair wages. Then there was the revelation that people would rather quit their jobs than go back to the office. People are starting to question how much of our lives are devoted to work. Which is healthy. Time is precious. We need money, but should we be grinding ourselves to death for it? Or spending 10 hours a week commuting? We don't think so. 

There are, of course, opponents of this radical way of thinking. There are CEOs who are eager to pull the plug on remote work - and the BBC is reporting that the five-day workweek will be re-normalized by 2022. But one person thinks that five days is not enough. Twitter user and venture capitalist (Principal at Atomic) Jordan Kong stoked the ire of a lot of people this past weekend when she tweeted her thoughts on young people trying to work on their careers. 

The sentiment - which seems a little dehumanizing - was not received well. Proponents of balance and "working to live" were quick to share their opposition. Incredulous people shared some roasty zingers. And then, of course, the funny people of Twitter turned the tweet into a snowclone, with some memes showing their disdain for the take and others using it to make jokes filled with pop culture references. Though we're sure some people will disagree, it's nice to see some people standing up for our right to not work. Even if they're doing it through memes.

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."

Millennials Discuss The Most Annoying Stereotypes About Their Generation

For the past several years, the media has dubbed Millennials the lazy, entitled, 'snowflake' generation who go around killing entire industries with their discriminating taste. Despite the fact that Millennials are now between the ages of 25 and 40, they still get blamed for things like Covid-19 super-spreader events on college campuses. With how generously the term gets used as a general pejorative, you'd think 'Millennial' could just mean 'youngish person who I don't like.' Well many are sick and tired of taking crap from out-of-touch people who seem to consider their own generation to be completely blameless. One redditor asked the internet to vent about the most annoying stereotypes about Millennials they've heard, and the replies are pretty spicy. If you're a disgruntled Millennial who's over all the slander, these top responses from the Reddit thread will probably resonate with you.

'Is There A Doctor On Board' Memes Are Self-Deprecating Twitter Gold

A lot of funny crap happened over Thanksgiving break, but our favorite Twitter meme has got to have been the "Is there a doctor on board" joke format. The self-deprecating snowclone, which mostly plays on a parents' disappointment in their child's career choice, is perfect for an emotionally charged and often family-filled holiday season.  It's a great way to laugh at our feelings of inadequacy and parental pressure - which definitely beats crying about it all.
