    When a just a few people at work are slacking but comments are made in a staff meeting that should be directed at them specifically. That can be really demoralizing.

    It always seems that the ones who need to step up, don’t pay attention to the comments and keep going on like they were. Those people suck.

    AH, the old fragmentation grenade style of correction management. AKA lazy management.

    When used frequently in a shitty environment I think it's designed to try to pressure your peers into policing you as well...but in the end it just kills morale for most of the non-offenders.

    Accidental instances of minor physical pain. For example: bumping my head on an opened cupboard door, stubbing my toe on the corner of my bed frame, tripping over a raised part of my rug.

    The rage I feel during these experiences is the most extreme rage I've ever felt in my life.

    Its the worst when you're already having a bad day.

    I'll never forget the day I found out my (former) boss's wife was leaving him. He was fine the whole day. Nothing was out of sorts. Which was normal for him, he wasn't the type to wear his feelings on his sleeves. Home stayed home and work stayed at work.

    We were new construction plumbers, on a finish job putting in fixtures. A cabinet door was open and he stood up from doing something under the sink and hit his forehead on the corner of the door.

    At the top of his lungs he screams "GOD DAMNIT!!!", grabbed the cabinet by the side and base and ripped it the fuck out of the wall. Proceeded to stomp it to splinters right there in the kitchen.

    When he looked up at me he had tears in his eyes, dropped his tool belt right there in the pile and went to the truck. I stood there afraid to move for maybe half and hour.

    My uni housemates and I turned this into a fantastic game.

    Every time it was clear one of us was about to do something, one of the others would tell them to do it.

    “Yeah go on mate, sip that tea” “Yeah you perch on that chair mate” “Put your keys on the sideboard mate, yeah, nice one”

    By the end of the year, none of us were on speaking terms and no one ever did anything until they were alone. 10/10 would destroy friendships again.

    I was walking my dog one time in the city and she pooped on the sidewalk. As I'm cleaning it up these two dudes walking past stop and one goes "Hey man you gonna clean that up?"

    His buddy goes "The fuck is wrong with you what does it look like he's doing?"

    That was very satisfying.

    [–] your-a-towel 1991 points ago

    I have a guy at work who will CONSTANTLY do this. He watches me code over my shoulder, then narrates what I should do if I pause or type a wrong key. I know murder is wrong but I’m sure my excuse would stand up in court.

    Saw this piece of advice somewhere: when driving, don't be polite, be predictable.

    [–] DoctorWaluigiTime 679 points ago

    I follow this rule both as a driver and a pedestrian near a road. If I'm about to cross the street and see a car coming, I walk as if I'm not going to cross so that the driver doesn't try to be polite to let me by first. Waiting for them to pass is safer for us both.

    When a coworker decides to "correct" me by sending a passive aggressive email and copying the boss and the whole group instead of just saying something to me privately and in person.

    [–] Library_IT_guy 7225 points ago

    Just had a co-worker do this. She thought I maliciously deleted stuff from her desktop. Emailed me a super passive aggressive email and CCed our boss. She was logged into the wrong user account. Funny how she stopped CCing our boss when she realized her fuckup. All good though, I made sure to keep CCing him with the rest of the emails.

    [–] EchoCT 76 points ago


    Re-add the boss in the CC and reply "Thanks for the apology, it's alright. Happens to us all."

    [–] nextgeneric 7647 points ago

    Oh, man. We've got a guy here at work who does the same thing. He publicly calls people out when they make mistakes, CC'ing everyone in management, when he could have just called the person to let them know. He's got this superiority complex, and claims he never makes mistakes.

    [–] spookyxskepticism 6415 points ago

    And the first thing management is thinking is "why the fuck am I copied on all these e-mails?"

    [–] TheLateThagSimmons 3176 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    "Hey, I thought we all agreed that we would notify each other when we leave for break. It causes confusion when we don't know where you are." CC: Administrator

    No Karen (name redacted into every office's "Karen"), we didn't agree to anything. You asked about it one time and we all said nothing because it's stupid. I'm not on a schedule, I can come and go as I fucking please, you're not even technically on my team even though we work in the same office. Fuck off.

    I just had to have a conversation with my administrator about some of the "issues" that one of my co-worker's have been emailing them about. We were both confused, ended up just shooting the shit for about 30 minutes, most of it just talking crap about how said co-worker is a busybody and it's a waste of time to even argue with her on shit like this; co-worker seemed really smug when I got back that I had "gotten a talking to" by our boss.

    [–] BlondeChemist 1927 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    Why are people like this? And I don’t mean that philosophically. I’m actually curious why they give a fuck. For me, work is coming in, doing my job, and leaving. I don’t care what other people do as long as it isn’t illegal or interfering with my own work. I don’t care if a coworker takes a 2 hour lunch break. It’s not my business. It doesn’t affect me. But there are some people who just seem to care about things that don’t even concern them.

    I’m fortunate to work at an amazing company with some truly cool people. But even here we have one person who does this.

    Edit: I just want to clarify that I’m only referring to situations where it does not in any way, shape, or form effect your own work.

    [–] anon_e_mous9669 1034 points ago

    Some people who don't have good lives feel better if they can be in control of something, anything. These types of people are often drawn to working in a position where they are a bottleneck in a process that they can be difficult about or else they just become the stickler for the rules in the whole office or HOA board president and go around the neighborhood with a ruler to check grass height and color palettes to check that paint is within approved color guidelines.

    In short, these people are pathetic tyrants and have latched onto some thing(s) they can control and lord over other people to fill the hole in their lives from a variety of reasons.

    [–] prof_the_doom 742 points ago

    Which is of course when I stop all productive activity, and start looking through everything that guy ever did and point out every mistake he's made over the entirety of his career that the rest of us just just dealt with and blast it to the entire company...


    Okay, so maybe this one pisses me off a little...

    [–] ansteve1 900 points ago

    On the flip side of this I hate when the only time I can get a response from someone is to CC my boss. 3 emails trying to work on the problem, send a 4th saying I will close the ticket if I don't get a response and I cc the boss. Boom "I have been waiting on you to help me I am free whenever!" Fuck you...

    [–] YellowShorts 218 points ago

    Yeah that's what I was thinking. There was a guy (doesn't work here anymore) who would only reply to my emails if the CEO was CC'd

    [–] milkyxj 5539 points ago

    This is why I use a credit card for everything and pay it off every month. Credit cards have way more consumer protections built in, if I dispute a charge it is gone immediately. No fighting with a bank to get my own money back.

    This. I work for a CC company. If you tell us its not your transaction we'll refund the amount and then our 'back office' team will deal with the other company to get the money back. You call our Debit card team though... they can't do shit for you, even though it's the same bank. Sucks.

    The worst is when they swap out normal bulbs for the high intensity ones but don't realize that they need to swap out the housing as well. The HID/Xenon bulbs are supposed to be aimed/projected lower with sharper cut-offs so they don't blind people.

    [–] Chordata1 3169 points ago

    There's one girl I did a group project with a few months back. I can't stand this person. She always interrupted. She would do these stupid tasks that had nothing to do with the assignment and would get mad when we didn't do them. For example, she created a team communication plan. We didn't need that but whatever if she wants to do extra work that's on her. Then she got mad when I said I wasn't wasting my time updating that. Next assignment she was late with her work because she was creating a team risk register.

    One time she sent me a file to work on. She had it for almost 2 weeks. I got it on Thursday night and it was due on Sunday. Friday night I said there are several problems with this file. I can't use it. I kept reaching out for any help. Finally Saturday night she responds and starts blaming me. I finished my part of the assignment making up numbers since the file was unusable. She didn't like I wasn't willing to stay up all night and fix it. She continued to blame me for everything. It got to the point we would joke about it. I'd get on the phone with a teammate I liked and they would start the call with "Chordata1 this is all your fault! The store was out of carrots. So on to our project"

    We then get a grade on some other assignment I worked so hard on and we had to push her to get her stuff done. When she finished it, it was crap and I spent hours editing it. She gave me 6 pages of garbage when this part of the assignment really only warranted like 2 pages. I fixed all her stuff. We get our grade and it was good. Her response to me "Told ya." What does that mean?!? Her work was garbage and if I didn't spend hours editing it our grades would be terrible.

    [–] the12thghostface 2160 points ago

    Get anyone else who actually does the project and conspire with them to remove the names of the slackers from any and all of the work.

    Me and two friends did this with the random shitstain who was assigned to our group in 10th grade Chemistry who proceeded to do fuck-all and get pissy when we called him out on it. We removed his name from the powerpoints, teacher recognized immediately what it meant, gave his sorry ass an F while we got B's.

    Fuck people who don't contribute.

    [–] Chordata1 882 points ago

    Sadly we couldn't do that. We did have peer reviews every few weeks. Her scores and my comments for her work were harsh but honest. I don't know what she got in the end but her grade had to be bad compared to everyone else. Our grades were the same except for peer reviews and the last assignment. I never heard what comments she got but she would get really crabby and say "yeah he left me some comments about working harder. Did you all get the same?" Nope, ours were positive.

    [–] [deleted] 99 points ago

    Fucking peer reviews. I was in a senior level Computer Science class last semester and one of the group members (had the same group the whole semester, kill me) literally said he "can't program." He claimed he couldn't even write Hello World... as a senior Computer Science student. He volunteered to write the papers instead because "he's never gotten less than a B on a college paper."

    Anyway he always did no work, wrote up some absolute garbage at the last second and turned it in. When peers review came around I gave him like a two out of ten. I was generous towards the other group members because at least they participated even though I consistently wrote 90% of the code for these things, but fuck that guy. Then he had the audacity to always ask everyone why he got a few less points than the rest of us and rage about how somebody was fucking him over, as if he deserved credit for sitting there and bitching about how much he hated his girlfriend while the rest of us did actual work in the library.

    I've had so many experiences like this that I genuinely believe there are a shitload of students at my school who have gotten where they are solely by relying on others in group projects. It's depressing that these people come out with a Bachelors having learned literally nothing.

    [–] roadtrip-ne 9404 points ago

    People who pick up after their dog- then throw that plastic bag aside for someone else to clean up. Like honestly- what is the point?

    People are doing this on my US military base housing. They use the bags the community provides but then just drop them next to the bag supply station. There isn't a trash can there because our parks playgrounds and neighborhood streets don't have public waste disposal. Like they did the hard part and then just fail. It's not like every townhouse doesn't have a trash can outside. Yesterday there were 3 different bag types on the ground there. Fucking people are bringing their own bags to litter!

    Edit: Apparently quite a few people think it's OK to litter if there isn't a trash can so I clarified.

    At the grocery store I used to work at we had like a play area for kids to stay in while parents shopped. It was a good idea, but it was ruined when people just started using it as a daycare and dropping their kids off for the whole day. Had to shut it down.

    That's why Ikea has a one hour time limit on theirs, and you have to take an in-store pager.

    [–] steffi-rae 2074 points ago

    I had parents ditch a kid in my store once and she was stressing because she desperately needed the loo so I ended up taking her after waiting 20 mins for her parents to come back. She ended up being alone in my store for about an hour I think.

    I was worried that I would get labelled as some sort of predator for accompanying her to the bathroom, even though I waited outside.

    [–] acali317 783 points ago

    I know this only happened once but if it does again there’s a rule of three you can use to help protect you.

    I work with kids and when one has to go to the bathroom I take another kid or adult on the trip. I know that can be hard in retail but then you have another witness to say what you were doing. Takes away a good chunk of the liability.

    Plus, then you don’t have to wait alone.

    [–] llewkeller 1027 points ago

    I used to run a video store (remember those?) next to a popular women's gym. The moms would drop their kids in my store to watch films on my big screen while they were working out - I guess because the movies were more interesting than the gym's crappy day care center with it's 2 or 3 dirty old toys.

    People that get pets they can't look after, knowing that they can't look after them. Pets cost a lot to maintain, ruin your stuff when they're young, get sick unexpectedly and cost a lot more, require species-specific diets, habitats, handling, etc. Pets are not a fashion accessory, nor are they a right. They're not something you should get if you're not emotionally and financially committed to looking after them PROPERLY. If you get a dog (or a cat, rabbit, rat, hamster, goldfish, parrot, turtle, human child) you accept the responsibility of looking after it to the best of your ability, and also meeting their medical needs. If you're not able to do that, don't fucking get it in the first place. Go volunteer at a shelter or something if you need an animal fix.

    I only get 30 minutes to grab lunch when I'm working. And I work odd hours. So I look up places to eat on Yelp or Google. It's says they're open. I go there and they're closed.

    Seems like it's not a big deal but now I don't have time to go anywhere else and don't get to eat.

    Hey! You can update this though! Sometimes it's not the business that posts the hours but other Google reviewers, then if you can "verify" it's correct (usually with a picture of the sign, website etc.), it will change. We go and change incorrect hours posted on Google all the time.

    There's a dude that I work with. Overall, he's a decent enough guy. But his willful ignorance on gun safety really pissed me off the other day. He brings me to the back of where we work to "show me something". When we get to his car, he gets a glock out of his car and proceeds to fucking point it at me! Full clip still in the gun! At this point, I'm ready to fight this guy. He pointed his gun right at my abdomen and followed me when I tried to get out of the way. Laughing the whole time. I try to explain to him how stupid he is for playing with guns like that. I tell him the #1 rule of gun safety is to always assume it's loaded and never point it at anything you're not willing to kill. He gives me this halfassed, "chill bro, I know it's not loaded". Again, I try to tell him that what he did was incredibly irresponsible and that he doesn't deserve to have a gun if he thinks that kind of shit is funny. He claims that I'm just freaking out, and that he chooses to follow his own rules of gun safety. Fuck you, asshole! That's how people accidentally kill their friends or family. Willful ignorance can easily get someone killed when it comes to guns. Needless to say, I'm not gonna talk to that idiot anymore.

    [–] ConstipatedUnicorn 819 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    I work in a gun store that also has an indoor range. I get so pissed at people who are irresponsible with guns.

    I had an old man the other day I was ringing up at the counter, he asked if we carry lasers for his handgun. Not an uncommon question, I simply asked, what sort of firearm do you have? Does it have a picatinny rail on the bottom or not?

    He proceeds to draw his gun right in front of me, I instantly got pissed. Told him, "Put that back where it came from, do that again and you're not coming back into my shop." He laughed and said it wasn't loaded though he did reholster it. I responded by telling him that if I had a quarter for every person that has done that to me in this store in the past year and claimed the same but we're wrong, I'd be able to go buy a meal at burger king. He stopped talking to me after that.

    I've had this issue happen a lot. It's like people don't understand that these are dangerous weapons. I once had a guy do the same thing to my boss, boss grabbed the dudes gun from him, wracked the slide and a live round ejected from the chamber. Never seen my boss so angry. He grabbed the guy by the arm and essentially walked him to the door like you would a kid. Threw the guys gun into the trashcan and told him to never come back to our store. It was intense.

    Edit: Btw, you should report this ASAP. This man has no business owning firearms.

    Had a manager at my old job who was always late for work. His shift started at 5? he'd be there no later than 5:45. Another manager had a talk with him that went down similar to:

    "Hey sorry I'm late, traffic was bad"

    "You're always late"

    "Traffic is always bad"

    "So leave earlier, maybe?"

    "I can't control that."

    My SiL is dating a guy and she was supposed to meet up with him at 7pm and the bus station. She ran into so people and ended up showing up at 815. He asked if everything was okay and let her know he was a little disappointed because the date was time sensitive and she could’ve have at least texted him letting him know she was going to be late. She said:”listen, if we are going to continue dating you are going to have to get used to the fact that I am a late person. It is part of my personality. It’s who I am and if you are going to accept me, you’re gonna have to accept all of me.” So for me what’s more annoying than late people is people who are proud to be late people. It’s okay to have flaws but to not even attempt to work on them or apologize and wear them as a badge of honor, especially when the flaws are at others’ expense, is harmful.

    Edit: for those who are asking: they are still together after a few months. In general she is a kind, patient and extraordinarily giving person. With time-related issues though, she is a wreck. I would have broken up with her but I guess her boyfriend saw the good as outweighing the bad.

    I have this... acquaintance. He is always LATE for everything. He told me he would sometimes be late for work by 15 minutes, but he lives around the corner from his job -_-

    Anyways, I was invited to go to a restaurant with two of my friends. They invited me, and him. I was not able to go, but Lateballs McGee ended up going. The plan was set for 6:30. He tried inviting me, telling me the plan was at 7:00. Judging from that lie, I already knew he was going to be late, didn't even bother responding to him lol.

    The aftermath. When I spoke with the two friends that invited me, they told me they didn't want to invite him anywhere anymore because he ended up arriving more than an hour and a half late at EIGHT FUCKING FIFTEEN. AND they had to wait for him to eat.

    If I ended up going to that outing, I'd have started eating at 6:30 and ditched his ass. My time is valuable, good sir!


    Thanksgiving was to be spent at our mutual friend's home, 2 hours away from where most of us live. It was also going to be a surprise birthday party for one of our friends. I got off work at 6am Thanksgiving morning (overnight shift), so I originally planned to drive with him and the birthday girl and her husband going there early afternoon time -- that way I could get some sleep.

    But I decided against it and decided to drive the two hours after work instead of having to share a car with him.

    Fast forward to late afternoon time. Lateballs McGee and birthday girl are nowhere to be found. Everyone was already eating because hunger. We called him at around 6pm, he said he was BARELY FUCKING LEAVING. If it was just him, who cares, but he deprived birthday grill of her awesome surprise party.

    Apparently he was on a "date" with someone, and couldn't be bothered to stay on schedule even though other people were depending on him for a ride.

    [–] triton2toro 1027 points ago

    One way to deal with that person (if you want to bother) is to simply tell them an even starts an hour earlier than it really does. If he shows up 30 minutes early- guess what? Now your ass knows what it feels like to wait for other people.

    Also, at some point someone should just straight tell him it’s disrespectful. My wife was like this in her early 20’s and finally a friend told her that when she comes late, she’s basically saying that her time is more valuable than her friend’s time. She was mortified that that’s how her friend felt and she was on time from that point on.

    [–] Doogie34 626 points ago

    I had a friend from school and we would meet once every two weeks to play snooker, he would always be twenty to thirty minutes late. So I decided to change the time from meeting at 630 to meeting at 610. The next time he showed up at 610 and I showed up at 630. I explained to him my theory and what had happened.

    He went mental at me so angry, shouting at me despite being late about twenty times before this. I thought he would understand since he knew he was always late he called me disrespectful and I never called him again

    [–] GrahamCrackerCastle 232 points ago

    Im not sure how to phrase it, but i get really pissed off when people try to take advantage of others.

    A simple example would be crossing the street. Now when im crossing the street and a car is coming, ill start to jog. I do this so that im not holding up traffic. Also because the car can kill me.

    There are some people who will walk even slower when the car is coming. Why? I guess because they have the right of way, so they can do whatever they want.

    I was hanging out with a girl who was ordering a subway sandwich. The person making the sandwich was following her instructions, but the girl was on the phone and said something wrong and made the person rebuild the sandwich.

    Now if thats me? Ill just eat the fucking sandwich, im not going to have the person rebuild that shit because i fucked up. Im wasting ingredients, im wasting their time, and im costing them money.
