Boss Threatens to Fire Employee for Posting Hourly Wage, Employee Immediately Quits

Trying to obtain the bare minimum required to live is a near-impossible task when you're below the line of poverty. Unfortunately, there are way, way too many jobs that are happy and more than willing to pay you next to nothing . As is the case with many of these sorts of positions, these jobs are menial, mind-numbingly boring, and managed by cruel individuals. The subject of today's story was a worker at a grocery store deli, earning only 12.5 dollars per painstaking hour. As most of us would…

Unemployed Husband Uses Deranged Logic to Justify Keeping Lights & Faucets on All Day

Depending on the people, all sorts of subtle power dynamics can start to emerge in a new marriage and manifest in strange ways. These dynamics can become especially ugly and problematic if one person in the relationship is a sociopathic control freak. An older r/AmItheAsshole thread recently went viral on Twitter because of its sheer weirdness. The original post by u/aitalightswater comes across as desperate as she explains her husband's bizarre behavior. According to OP, her husband quit his j…

TikTok about a cruel manager who fires tech employee in an unbelievably uncouth fashion

Cruel Manager Fires Tech Employee in an Incredibly Uncouth Manner

I do not envy anyone who has to fire others. Letting somebody down easy is a skill I simply don't have. Every time I've broken up with someone, I have done it clunkily and a bit insensitively, which is really not ideal for delivering bad news . You need to tell the other person what's happening directly, but not too directly. You need to be empathetic first and informative second. You need to make sure they cry after you fire them instead of when they're in the room with you. It's a tricky bala…

A Reddit thread about a person who found out they're getting let go and want to make the process as awkward as possible for their boss.

Employee Finds Out They're About to Be Laid Off, Finds Best Ways To Make Their Employer Uncomfortable

There's nothing worse than getting laid off . Just kidding, there is something objectively worse than that: finding out you're getting laid off from an outside source days before it happens. Being terminated without pay is possibly worse than getting let go, but getting let go always feels somewhat slimy, especially when your department is seemingly cut for no reason. Getting laid off is like saying, “we'll give you a little unemployment as a treat.” It's seemingly innocuous, but it's just anot…

Workers Share The Worst Things Terrible Bosses Have Ever Said To Them

Employment can be a real piece of work. Being the underling of your boss can go sour quickly. As anyone in the workforce knows, employers are often more than willing to take advantage of their employees because they think they can get away with it. Horrible bosses believe they can squeeze the life out of their workers and continue doing so because they don't think they will ever quit. Who among us hasn't had a boss who watches our every move, making you terrified of making one error to risk bei…

Company Bans Job Hunters From Reapplying For 12-Months After Failing "Personality Test"

When I was applying for jobs, I was a bit skeptical of any job that asked me to take a personality test before the interview. I understand wanting to hire somebody with good vibes, but isn't that what multiple rounds of interviews are for? You would think companies might do such a test to understand someone's temperament and working style to ensure they're right for this position. That, unfortunately, is not usually the purpose. Although it's quite a shady practice, many jobs that use “personal…
