Thread Discusses Timeless Video Games That Should Be Considered Masterpieces

I played Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty for the first time on Christmas day in 2001. That morning, after all the presents had been opened, my dad popped our new game (that he got for us) into the PS2 so that he could “test it out.” Five hours later, he finally concluded that the game was in working order and reluctantly handed off the controller to me and my little sister. Up until that point, I had only ever played games like Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, and Ape Escape— which are all iconic ga…

A Reddit thread about a shady job posting for a coffee shop accusing aplicants of being lazy.

Shady Job Posting Preemptively Accuses Applicants Of Laziness

People are becoming much more critical of recruiters' rhetoric during the Great Resignation era. Even as early as the application process, employers will show their slips, and it will be apparent that their business is not an ideal working environment . Red flags during the hiring process should never be brushed off or ignored, and this case is no exception to that rule. Reddit user Iambacon shared a job posting they found on Facebook to r/recruitinghell. There were several things with this pos…

Entitled Boss Refuses to Let Worker Take Time Off for Honeymoon, Shoots Self in the Foot

Working 40 hours a week for years is nearly impossible without respect and reasonable benefits. Everyone who works deserves a reasonable amount of time off, especially for important life events, like getting married or having a child. When redditor u/WhoSc3w3dDaP00ch requested time off for their honeymoon nearly two months in advance, their deadbeat manager (who was notoriously bad at reading important emails) ignored the request for weeks before finally denying OP's time off. The boss said “re…

Secret Shoppers & Retail Workers Reveal the Infuriating Truth About Covert Employee Evaluations

If retail work wasn't hellish enough, it turns out that even providing good customer service can get you reprimanded by the bosses . One troubled redditor recently shared their experience working as a mystery shopper to r/antiwork , which spurred a lively thread of many other stories from former mystery shoppers and retail workers. The thread reveals that the mystery shopping strategy is much more about snitching on employees for failing to properly scam customers than it is about ensuring qual…

37-Year-Old Aspiring Twitch Streamer Calls Fiancé ‘Selfish’ for Refusing to Buy Expensive Gaming Laptop

We should all be supportive of our partners' career choices…within reason. When u/Content_Profession63 's fiancé quit his job to become a professional Twitch streamer, she encouraged him to follow his passion and even agreed to financially support the both of them with her online business. Seven months later, OP's fiancé was doing plenty of gaming, but still hadn't even gotten around to creating a Twitch account. OP's tolerance for BS finally waned when her fiancé asked her for an expensive gam…

Greedy Landlord Tries To Exploit Tenant for Free Labor, Gets Owned Instead

Slumlords are exploitative by nature, and in this lucky redditor's case, not very smart. After u/nopanicprepper experienced a series of plumbing issues in their home, they notified their absentee landlord , who refused to pay for any repairs. Instead, the landlord “allowed” OP to do the repairs since OP was an engineer. (How generous.) OP maliciously complied, and to the landlord's horror, sent over a hefty invoice for parts and labor. Keep scrolling for the whole story.

Boss Throws Temper Tantrum After Employee Quits, Royally Screws Himself Over

Firing an employee right after they hand in their two weeks notice is probably the least professional thing a boss can do in that situation, and that's exactly what happened to redditor u/Brilliant-Parking359, whose boss ended up screwing himself over by firing his employee right after they quit. u/Brilliant-Parking359 still had the company truck in their possession, and bossman expected OP to drive three hours to deliver the truck even after he'd told OP to ‘f*** off.’ Needless to say, OP did…

Amusing Things That Are Normal at 3PM but Terrifying at 3AM

What is it about the night that transforms the seemingly mundane into the stuff of nightmares ? It can't just be about the dark. It feels deeper and more primal than that.

We've collected all of our favorites for your amus…

Worker Responds to Boss' Tone-Deaf Messages With Memes, Gets Suspended

Imagine working your butt off in the hope that the extra effort might lead to adequate compensation, and then management decides to “show appreciation” with a pizza party or an e-card with clipart of a cake on it that says “great job.” To all the bosses out there, if you're reading this, listen up: a pizza party or a cool backpack just doesn't cut it in this economy. The best way to express appreciation for your employees is to adequately pay them. And when the inflation rate is

People Discuss the 'Conspiracy Theories' They Actually Believe

There are some pretty bonkers conspiracy theories out there that are only convincing if you're stoned enough, but unless you're living in blissful ignorance, there are probably more than a few things you're a little skeptical about. In a recent r/AskReddit thread about plausible conspiracy theories, incredulous people discuss all the things they're particularly suspicious about, like dollar slice places in New York (are they a money laundering front?) and memes about movies and TV shows (are the

Employee Exposes Shady Boss Who Cheated Workers Out of Secret Benefit for Years

If you haven't noticed, there's an epidemic of horrible bosses scamming their employees out of benefits, wages, and precious time. It's almost as if the managerial class as a whole is incentivized to rip off the working class as much as possible. How else is your boss supposed to become filthy rich? That money has to come from somewhere. Redditor u/ClubWag recently shared their infuriating tale of working for a lying, gaslighting boss who broke promises and cheated employees out of official pol…

New Management Tells Staff to Quit if They Don’t Like the New Rules, Everyone Quits

There's no shortage of stories about incompetent managers driving their skilled staff away with terrible ideas about how they should be doing their jobs, and this post recently shared on r/MaliciousCompliance is a perfect example. For those who want the TL;DR: basically, OP worked at a sales job where they had a fantastic manager who treated his staff like human beings and gave them the freedom to do their jobs in whatever way worked best for them. As long as everyone was hitting their targets,…

People Observe Things That Are Uniquely American in Interesting Thread

As an American who recently moved to the United Kingdom, a lot of the funny observations in this amusing Reddit thread about uniquely American things really resonated with me. For example, when someone asks me where I'm from, my first instinct is to say, “well I grew up in California, but I just moved from New York.” Whereas a European might simply respond with what country they're from. And I never realized that to many people outside the United States, certain Americans (especially New Yorker…
