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…

A Reddit thread about an Entitled Karen who demanded a woman stop exercising in a public park.

Entitled Karen Demands Women Stop Exercising In A Public Park

Karens have been around long before we labeled them as Karens . Everyone can agree that something about an entitled, impatient, cruel, boomer white woman drives nearly everyone up a wall. I'd say the absolute worst thing about Karens is the self-centeredness they seem to all possess. They perceive everything around them that they don't like as an intentional slight directed at them specifically. How they can blow up angrily at the most banal offense is baffling. They will literally become enrag…

Workers Share Times Their Cheap Bosses Made Them Pay for Food at Work-Related Social Engagements

What kind of company forces their employees to pay for food at a work event? Bosses already rip off workers with low wages and long hours. Making them pay $5 for a hamburger at the work cookout is just adding insult to injury.

Boss Chides Employee for Wearing Shorts to Work, Malicious Compliance Ensues

Nobody likes a boss who arbitrarily makes up reasons to berate their employees just because they're having a bad day and feel like taking it out on someone. When redditor u/bear-mc showed up to work wearing totally normal khaki shorts due to the hot weather, their boss used it as an opportunity to reprimand them. The boss demanded that OP “follow the dress code to the book," and OP complied…maliciously.

Idiot Boss Fires Only Worker Who Can Operate Special Machine to Cover for Guy Who Keeps Breaking It

Do you ever think about all the infrastructure that holds society together and wonder what Big Industry looks like behind the scenes? Turns out every trade has its idiots who somehow got to run the show and hire their idiot friends and relatives to do dangerous and critical jobs. According to one redditor's lengthy (and captivating) tale of malicious compliance, the energy sector is no exception. I don't know who needs to hear this, but you probably shouldn't fire the only person who knows how…

Unhinged Family Freaks Out When Daughter-In-Law’s First Born Isn’t a Boy, Goes Full ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ at the Shower

Every family has its quirks, but this redditor's story about how her in-laws reacted to the sex of her unborn child is beyond unsettling. The family nearly had a collective mental breakdown after they failed to will a baby boy into existence through various “rituals,” the ultimate goal possibly being to superimpose their dead grandfather's identity onto the kid. Yikes. Sounds like something out of Rosemary's Baby or Hereditary. Jokes aside, OP's family likely just needs some serious grief couns…

Clever Engineer Teaches Sleazy Client a Lesson After They Refuse to Pay

Do you pay an engineer for pressing buttons or do you pay an engineer for knowing which buttons to press? Definitely the latter, and some people learn that the hard way, like the sleazy customer in u/AwkLemon 's epic r/ProRevenge story. They thought they could get away with tricking a professional problem-solver into doing a day of free labor . They thought wrong.

Boss Mistakenly Admits to Grand Theft Paycheck In Email to Former Employee Requesting Owed Wages

It's insulting enough to get paid the bare minimum for a job that demands most of your time. But a company that literally steals wages from their employees ? That's just vile. When redditor u/overworked-american asked for owed wages from their former employer , they were shocked when the head of the company not only rejected their request, but justified the denial by essentially explaining that it wouldn't be fair to all the other employees the company had ripped off in the past.

Dude Whines About His Wife's Cooking So Brother-In-Law Serves Dinner With Toy Kitchen Set for Toddlers

What do you do when you witness your a-hole in-law treating your sibling like crap? Do you keep your head down and stay out of their business, or do you intervene? One redditor decided on the latter after witnessing his exhausted sister get crap from her husband for not serving him dinner even though she'd cooked everything. Angry on his sister's behalf, OP taught his brother-in-law a lesson—a petty move that might have done more harm than good, but satisfying nonetheless.

Abusive Boss Gets Taste of Her Own Medicine When Worker Quits Without Notice

Horrible bosses are the absolute worst, but many disgruntled employees aren't necessarily in a position to quit their jobs , leaving them stuck in an indefinite 9-5 nightmare. However, when the opportunity to quit does arise, it can feel like the best day of one's life. In a r/MaliciousCompliance post, redditor u/Public_Pressure_4516 explains how their cruel boss seemed to get off on constantly reminding employees that they could get fired at any moment, without notice.

Servers Earn More Than Managers Thanks to Big Tips, Boss Responds by Cutting Wages

Tipping is a strange, yet highly normalized custom in American culture. Do you ever stop and wonder about the origins of gratuity in America? The history is pretty damn dark . Nevertheless, tipping workers for their service is deeply embedded into our society and it isn't going away, unless of course, employers start to pay service workers adequately. This r/antiwork post about how a restaurant decided to cut wages because workers were making too much in tips makes us think that's not going to…
