All About That Work-Life Balance

Funny tweet that reads, "I said I'm able to work under pressure, not that I will die for your company" above a still of Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones smirking

Employers are out of their minds these days.

Evicted Business Strips Everything to Foil Landlord

The landlord expected this business to just leave their stuff so he could sell the whole space to their competitors, but they were having none of it. For more landlord drama, here’s a guy who went full Karen when threatened with eviction and revenge that ensued when a landlord who broke the law. Here’s another where a landlord refused to give back a deposit so court revenge followed.

Text - In every other sight vacation we have seen, we always end up leaving thousands of $$ worth of disco lights in the ceilings because they're too hard to get. We leave most the construction in, as well as things like the bars and kitchens that all stay intact (recognisable as what they once were) but not this building. We ripped up the flooring we installed, tore down the walls that were not part of the original structure (Wooden walls to divide up the space) ripped apart our manager's offic

6.

Text - Lockdown has been extended another 4 weeks, so he has at least another 4 weeks without rent (we were paying) and won't have any potential buyers. Silver lining: The assets we got out of the site (fridges, tv's, equipment, food, tables) have all been sold, and the lack of rent and additional income has helped the business and paid staff wages.

Terrible Manager Gets Fired, Divorced, And Sued For Fraud

This revenge is pretty much nuclear in nature. Betty brought it on herself. She was caught up in a whirlwind of self-enforced criminal and immoral behavior. It was only a matter of time before the whole thing came toppling down on itself. And oh boy, it did. The employee that got fired before they could quit decided to address Betty’s absurd antics, and call her out. The rest is history, and certainly one revenge story for the books.

Text - r/ProRevenge u/MrZero10 • 23h + JOIN 2 W 1 Fire me before I quit? I ruin your life. Since i'm still in school I took a job at a bakery of types which I won't name. The place has Bread in the name but also sells overpriced salads and sandwiches. I worked there for close to a year where I had this boss named Betty (not her real name of course). Betty and I didn't get along whatsoever. She had gotten the previous general manager to quit because she had an affair with him and she threatened t

2.

Text - When I first started working there I was respectful but she would do things that would get on my nerves. For instance I would clean all the places I would be hired to do and once I was done and relaxed for maybe 5 minutes she would run out of the manager's office screeching, "Why aren't you working?" I would tell her of course I did my job and as a cashier if nobody is there to help then I didn't have anything to do. She would glare at me then I would see her "accidentally" drop an entire

3.

Text - She was barely at work. She would drive to my job clock just in case corporate decided to check her hours. So she was essentially stealing hours. When you clocked in it printed out a small piece of paper telling when you clocked in. She would just drop them on the floor for me to clean up. I would usually pick them up and stick them into a pocket. So this led to me finding Betty clock in and out stubs in my pocket at my house. This will be important for later. Did I mention she was super

4.

Text - So after a while I got sick of practically begging for hours so I went to my current job. But decided I merely wanted to drop my hours. Which were already barely a day a week. But suddenly when I got my new job. She scheduled me every. Single. Day. of an entire week. She never did that even when we were on semi good terms. So I obviously told her I had a new job and couldn't do this. After that I went home and called my friend who was still working there to tell him I was going to quit to

5.

Text - The next day I walk in and go through the respectful motions of saying, "Thank you for the opportunity and blah blah blah." Betty let me get through the entire speech before she said. "Oh yea I was meaning to tell you. You're fired." I was so blindsided and pissed I cussed her out. My mom raised me to treat women with respect but this fucking fat overweight hippo looking bitch pissed me tf off. She's the type of girl to think binge eating was a personality trait. So I left and was mad abo

Text - THE REVENGE He thought I was still working there so I explained to him I was fired. He was stunned due to the fact that I was a decent employee. He asked why she let me go and I explained it to him and he was angry. He clarified that she fired me before I quit and I said yes. He was pissed that she did this and asked if there was anything else she might have done. I kind of just vented to him for a bit. When I told him about the racist remark he asked if anyone else would collaborate with

7.

Text - I asked all the people who were working that day if they could and a few said they would say they did. But one did even better. My one coworker Andy is convinced he's the next big vlogger so he always has his phone out or just using audio recording for hours for a chance to catch a funny clip. I've watched his content and let me say it's just super cringe. But turns out he labels each recording by the day and times. So when he checked he found her making racist remarks. I got a brilliant

8.

Text - Like once a guest sneezed on the baked pastries and when a coworker told her she laughed it off and said nobody would know. But this wasn't enough for me. I try to avoid conflict but when i'm in a situation l'll follow it through. I looked her up on facebook and found out she was MARRIED. Nobody knew this, so when she had the affair with the other manager and basically blackmailed him she was also married and cheating. I don't think anyone ever cared enough to find out because she was a n

9.

Text - I did some research and in my state blackmail or extortion is a third degree penalty. Which has a max of 7 YEARS in prison with a fine over 10K to the victim. So I told the old manager what my plan was for her. He agreed to call the cops on her but I asked if he'd wait until I finished my part first. He said he'd give me a week. So I met with District Manager Ben and showed him all our evidence. The recordings and the written statements from my other ex-coworkers and people who were still

10.

Text - Turns out Ben first checked the security cameras to see if she was there for the full time she claimed to be. Big surprise, she wasn't. So Ben decided to investigate the store's expenses since if she's lying about her time what else could she be stealing? He found out she was stealing money from the store. The guy didn't fully explain how she was but just that she was. Turns out she was breaking alot of health and safety codes and used the money for repairs and etc. for herself. So she wa

11.

Text - So she's begging someone to let her stay but all of her friends and family totally bailed on her. So she was living in her car looking for a job. That's when Mark decides to sue her for extortion, so she scrambles to find a lawyer and to make it even worse the company decided to sue her for all the money she stole and plus all the repairs and lost revenue while the store is closed. Betty's life is shit. She had to sell her car for drastically under what it's worth to pay for all the legal

Man Accidentally Sends Private Message To Whole Company

This guy accidentally sent an email intended for a certain set of eyes, to the whole company. One can only imagine what kind of panic and embarrassment he must’ve experienced upon the realization that he’d sent the email to a whole lot more people than intended. Oh well. It must’ve been a good laugh for the rest of the people that got to see it.

Text - a bit of a surprise to see me with facial hair. A friend at the company privately messages me through WebEx, "Dude what happened to your face?" I thought it would be funny to reply with "Good News! I finally hit puberty!!!" except that message wasn't private - it went to everyone on the call... like everyone - without any context around it. Just imagine sitting there on a company webex call listening to the SVP of Sales and out of nowhere your coworker sends you a message saying "Good New

Unfortunately, that was in the early days of IT in the Canadian military and they hadn't clamped down on who you could and couldn't send it to and somehow the To: address turned into **.

Shipping Company Breaks $600 TV, Denies Claims, Loses Millions

This shipping company’s decision to not address a broken TV ended up costing them so much in the long run. Yeah, we’re talking millions of dollars. A little problem that could’ve been handled in the moment, evolved into the kind of mountainous loss that must’ve haunted them to no end. What a glorious case of pro revenge.

Not sure if this is "Pro" quality but some have asked me to post this here since they think it is. 10 years ago I moved for my job. I had forgot about one of my TV's back home and asked my dad to ship it to me (on my companies account since they paid for my move). A couple days later the delivery driver from Shipping Company A drops it off. The box was heavily damaged so I didn't si

Text - Claim denied a month later. This goes back and forth for a couple months with multiple emails to this old lady and she did't care at all. She was also very rude to me via email and phone. Now this Shipping Company A has two separate entities. Parcel and Freight. We solely used this freight company for all of our warehouses across the US. I cut them off at my new store and started using Company B. It only took a month before the salesman from Shipping Company A stopped by. When he showed u

Text - along with a letter from their Vice President. So I guess this is the "Pro" part. Fast forward a couple years and l've been promoted within the company to make certain decisions and one happens to be logistics. NONE of our locations use Shipping Company A. Some months we spend well over $100k but most are around $80OK company wide and this has been going on for several years now. We also inform customers to use Shipping Company B since Shipping Company B is awesome and treat us very well.

Hilarious Zoom Meeting Fails (22 Tweets)

Zoom meetings are inspiring all kinds of cringe and spontaneous fails. The realm of the Zoom meeting can be a tricky one to navigate. Not everyone understands how it works, and through that wonderful confusion, we get some comedy gems when attempts turned into failures. We’re still not over that time that a boss turned herself into a potato during a meeting, and couldn’t turn herself back. Now that is beautiful.

Company Cancels Recruit’s Project, Recruit Drives Rental Car 800 Miles Home

This company pulled a shady fast one on a recruit who they flew out for an exciting position. As it turns out, they canceled the project, and left the recruit out in the cold, needing to pay for hotel and airfare. So, the recruit decided to make a move of their own, and proceeded to drive the rental car they’d been provided by the company, 800 miles home. Now that is a beautiful thing.

Amazing and Ridiculous Bootlegs and Knockoffs

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.

Company Forces Employee to Use All His Vacation Days, Incapacitates Company

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

When People Knew Their Company Was On Its Last Leg

Working for a big company can be weird. The lack of oversight can be strange, like this guy who was never told to do anything and stayed on for months. What gets extra strange is when the company starts to tank. Bosses stop responding to emails, the stores themselves begin to degrade, and people stop showing up. Here are people who know what it was like to work for a big failing company.

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.

Fourteen ‘Boss Makes A Dollar’ Memes Great For Sticking It To The Man

Caution: these memes might convert you to communism. Well, they probably won’t do that, but they will likely make you consider how little you’re getting paid when compared with your boss.

Boss Messes With Wages, Company Gets Sunk With One Phone Call

It’s remarkable how many of these revenge stories begin and end with the ultimate demise of one power tripping boss.
