Zoom meetings are inspiring all kinds of cringe and spontaneous fails. The realm of the Zoom meeting can be a tricky one to navigate.

Customers Want Bigger Wine Glasses, Bartender Maliciously Complies

These customers sound like they came in on a mission to be discontented with whatever the bartender served up, and did for them. So, the bartender served them up a couple big glasses — as per request — of exactly what they ordered. Were they just trying to get more wine, with that little request? Maybe.

Employee Discovers Food Allergy At Company Potluck

This employee came to learn what constitutes a food allergy, a bit later than they might have expected. The tingling that their brain had registered as perfectly “normal” was an allergic response to the bananas they were eating. Their co-workers must’ve gotten a kick out of the revelation.

Guy Orders Boxes but Keeps Getting Granola

Anyone who has ever had to navigate customer service with a massive company knows that getting a specific demand through can be frustrating, especially when a few mistakes have already been made. Sometimes when you buy stuff online, what you purchase is not what you get.

People deal with their fair share of ignorant bosses, so it’s incredibly satisfying to see an employee who’s in the right win something, like this overworked employee who revolted by doing his exact job description. And to prove that your boss is being a complete hypocrite is icing on the cake.

Company Fires Employee For Meme, Gets Trolled To Oblivion

This company managed to track down the Facebook activity of a discontented employee. The employee has posted a meme making fun of using company time for bathroom breaks, cause they made all the money while he didn’t make sh*t. From there, the company calls him out, fires him, and then digs a deeper hole (for themselves) by blowing the whole thing further out of proportion.
