Woman Reported By Coworker For Eating 'Sexy Potatoes' At Work

Anyone who has worked in an office is familiar with the situation of being forced to deal with a crazy coworker. If you can't think of anyone in your office... I have some unfortunate news for you.

No, but seriously, there's always going to be someone that you don't mesh with but you are forced to deal with them anyway. That's just life in general. However, this situation, shared by Reddit user u/SuccessfulPeace292, seemed a little more obscure than usual. She was literally reported to HR by her 'Karen' coworker for eating 'sexy potatoes.' If that prompt doesn't make you insist on getting more details, I don't know what will.

Woman Refuses To Provide Inheritance Money To Sister Who Needs Post-Cancer Surgery

You can find a whole lotta love within families, but you could also find a whole lotta drama in 'em too. Some families are super wholesome, some are batsh*t crazy, and some fall somewhere in the middle. On Reddit's infamous 'Am I The A**hole' thread, we're analyzing quite the complicated family this week. The story begins with two sisters - one a mother, the other one childless - plus she's never having on planning kids and frankly isn't a fan of children at all, including her sister's kids. To make a long story short, the sister's parents only allowed access to the inheritance money to their kids that had children, so when they passed on, the childless sister received none of the inheritance money. She asked her sister to lend her some money for surgery after her battle with cancer, alas she's not exactly in a giving mood considering her sister's nasty attitude towards her children.

Irish Teen Punished After Refusing To Have Her Culture Exploited In American High School

Moving from one school to another one is always a huge step. It's never fun to be the new kid. What's even harder is moving from one school to another one in a completely different country. Now, not only are you the new kid, but you're the new kid with a new accent and a new culture that you suddenly have to become the representative for.

Americans and foreigners have an interesting relationship. Firstly, a lot of Americans consider everyone to be a foreigner, even when they are living in their own country. Sometimes it can be difficult to move past stereotypes when trying to learn about someone else's background. It is a good thing to celebrate other people's cultures, and ask them questions with an open mind, but we need to understand that sometimes people just don't want to share.

My (16F) family and I recently moved from Dublin, Ireland, to a small town in the South of the United States, a real "Bible Belt" town where it seems they don't get a lot of "foreigners" like myself and my family.

Teen Reports Teacher For Ordering Her To 'Control Her Period' During Zoom Class

Having a period has always been something that holds women back since men are unable to fully understand how they work. For whatever reason, it is still a cringy topic to bring up and girls are still expected to hide their tampons in their sleeves as they excuse themselves from class.

For this teen though, that wasn't even an option. Even in Zoom High School, some teachers still refuse to let their kids 'leave' to go to the bathroom. I guess power-hungry teachers have found new ways to make their students' lives miserable. Refreshing, isn't it?

The 16-year-old eventually reported her teacher and realized that he may lose his job. Now she's asking if she's an A-hole on Reddit for potentially jeopardizing his career. What do you think?

Teen Reports Teacher For Ordering Her To 'Control Her Period'| thumbnail photo - AITA for reporting my teacher and potentially getting him fired? My (16f) school requires us to keep our cameras on during the entire class. If we need to use the restroom we are supposed to privately message our teacher and ask to leave. I have absolutely no issue with these rules as I understand that online teaching is hard and you have to make sure everyone is attentive during classes.

Wife Pissed At Husband After He Asks Her To Cook Him Separate Meals When She's On Diet

Being on a diet isn't easy, but it's especially tough when you're living with someone who isn't. Watching them eat all the foods you are restricting can be a hard temptation, but diets are a personal choice, and no one else should have to limit themselves for you just because you've decided to diet. Sure, you can be mindful of what you eat in front of someone, but that's about it. One married couple is butting heads over the correct way to go about one of them dieting, and the husband posted on Reddit's Am I The A—hole for some moral support.

My wife gained some weight over the past year and was already overweight, so she wanted to make change. She's also pretty short, so the amount of calories she needs to eat is a lot lower than me. I'm 6'4 and an average weight for my height.

Dad Fuming After Mom Puts Makeup On Their 2-Year-Old, Resulting In A Rash

Makeup is meant for adults; there are no two ways about it. Sure, kids can experiment and have fun with their mom or older sister's makeup, but only with adult supervision and within the framework of playing dress-up. Aside from the fact that adults encouraging children to wear makeup hild can cause body image issues that a child shouldn't have, some makeup contains chemicals that aren't designed for children's skin and can cause irritation and rashes. One father discovered this the hard way when his wife experimented with her makeup on their two-year-old child, which caused her to break out in a rash. A parenting war erupted over who was right.

Wife Fuming After Catching Husband Selling Her Sandwiches To Buy Fast Food For Lunch

Anyone who buys lunch every day at work will know how fast the bills add up. A coffee here, a burger there, and a salad somewhere else, these 'small' costs can suddenly become significant accumulated amounts. One couple decided that in an attempt to save up for a house, part of their cost-cutting strategy would be for the husband to bring in his wife's homemade sandwiches instead of buying fast food. But when she found out through his coworker that he had been selling her sandwiches to them and using the money to buy fast food instead, she was understandably devastated and felt like she was being taken advantage of.

Childfree Woman With Demanding Job Upset At Moms For Claiming Monopoly On Tiredness

We all have that one friend who just cannot stop 'sneak-bragging' about how overwhelmed they are, how they just barely have enough time to eat or sleep or exercise. Yet it seems as though they really make the time to tell you all of this, literally every single day. And of course, they never ask you about your life and your duties, because they're so cute and little compared to hers. You couldn't possibly understand what it's like to be tired! Why is it always a competition of who is busier? I know this must be making you think of somebody.

Before we get into this aggravating 'Am I The A-hole' post, if you feel pissed off already and want to scream, feel free to let it all out.

'Influencer' Mad At GF For Sabotaging TikTok Account After He Lies About Their Relationship

Gone are the days when being an influencer was a fun side-gig. Nowadays, if you want to make it on social media, you have to devote all your spare time to building a following and creating an online presence. But when you're dedicating that much time, the lines between your real life and the life you're pretending to live online can become blurred. One guy learned this the hard way when he uploaded a video to TikTok showcasing his daily routine, in which he claimed to spend four hours a day cuddling with his girlfriend. His girlfriend clapped back, saying she barely sees him for half an hour a day because of the extra time he dedicated to growing his following on TikTok. In response, she created a video displaying screenshots of his recent attempts to cancel plans, proving how little time he actually spent with her. Her actions resulted in him losing a chunk of his followers, who claimed he was a fraud and a liar. Understandably, her boyfriend wasn't happy with her, but she posted her predicament on Reddit's Am I TheA—hole claiming her actions were justified. What do you think?

A whole lotta sht could go down in a marriage, and a whole lot of sht can go down at work. But what about when the two collide and create an explosion of cringe and awkwardness? That's exactly what happened on the well-known Reddit thread 'Am I The Asshole?' this week.

New Mom Lashes Out After Husband's Constant Sexist Jokes

Having children is quite possibly the most significant commitment you will ever make in your life and one you should only undertake if you plan on doing the hard work involved in raising your kids. This means sharing parental responsibilities with your partner, even if you didn't give birth yourself. Yes, dads, we're talking about you. However, it appears that some fathers don't understand how contributing half the ingredients towards making a child means that you are responsible for half the work in taking care of them. One new mom found out that not all dads believe this to be the case when her husband used sexist jokes as responses to her repeated requests to help her with their baby. She claimed that she did 99% of the work, and her husband refused to help, claiming that it was the women's job to raise babies. When she finally snapped and called him a d*ck, he went off in a huff, making her feel the need to apologize. She posted her dilemma on Reddit's Am I The A—Hole, and unsurprisingly, Redditors had a lot to say in her defense.

Asking him to do something is like pulling teeth sometimes. He keeps making jokes like he doesn't need to do stuff, he has a wife for that, or he can't do something, he's holding the baby.

Mom In Tears After Husband Nicknames Her 'Miss Piggy' To Incentivize Weight Loss

The internet is full of interesting people, some more so than others. But every so often, you come across someone who is such an awful human that you can't believe they are real. One guy proved how true this is when his wife posted on Reddit's Am I The A—hole explaining how demeaning approach to 'help' her lose her baby weight was giving her a breakdown. She unveiled that after developing post-partum depression, she struggled to shift the weight she gained from the pregnancy, which is when her husband decided to reveal he was no longer attracted to her. Charming, right? It gets better. In an attempt to incentivize her weight loss, he told all their friends and family (including their young children) to call her 'Ms. Piggy', effectively fat-shaming her into losing weight. After her children called her by her new nickname one night at dinner, she admitted that she lost it and started crying. Redditors jumped to her defense, calling her husband out as the emotionally abusive a—hole that he is.

Father Fuming After Brother-In-Law Kicks Baby Out Of Nursery To Hook Up With GF

Having a baby is hard work. Suddenly, your life revolves around this tiny human who depends on you for survival, and you better know what you're doing. Since parenting is a very much 'learn on the job' type of role, parenting basics don't necessarily come naturally, especially if you don't have children. One guy proved this while staying at his sister and brother-in-law's house when he relocated their sleeping baby from its nursery into a stroller in the hallway just so that he could have sex with his girlfriend in the nursery. Understandably, the situation left the baby's father fuming because the baby's blanket had fallen over his face, which could have been a fatally dangerous situation. He posted on Reddit's Am I The A**hole, explaining that his wife, who wasn't in town at the time, claims her husband is overreacting. Redditors disagreed and had A LOT to say on the matter.

Woman Fuming After Coworker Steals Her Sonogram For Pregnancy Prank Against Ex BF

A new baby on the way is exciting news! Generally, people can't wait to tell their friends and family about the bundle of joy that they're about to bring into the world. Usually, people express their excitement for the expecting parents, and everyone goes on their merry way. A Reddit user recently expressed her deep-seated concern about a coworker who stole the picture of the shared sonogram to prank her ex-boyfriend into thinking the baby was his.

Woman Refuses To Wear Bra At Work Despite Coworkers Complaints

Being an employee means adhering to specific workplace rules and risking inevitable consequences if you don't. Included in those policies is the dress-code, which will, of course, differ depending on where you work. However, sometimes the rules aren't so clear-cut and can be left open to the employee's interpretation—for example, deciding whether or not wearing a bra is necessary. One woman faced this very problem and posted on Reddit's Am I The A**hole after receiving complaints from her new coworkers about her refusal to wear a bra in the office. She stresses that she didn't wear a bra at her previous job, her nipples weren't on show, and a sweater hid her 'large boobs,' and she was, in her opinion, entirely appropriate. Redditors, however, disagreed and argued that, although it sucks, it was unprofessional and if she didn't like the policy at her new workplace, she should find another job. What do you think?

Mom Wants To Know If She's Wrong To Blame Six-Year-Old Daughter For Babysitter Quitting

The world can be a scary and daunting place for kids. Learning to navigate their way through it as they develop emotions, opinions and feelings can be challenging. As any parent can attest, kids choose to throw tantrums out of nowhere, always at the worst times. Even though it's because they're feeling scared, insecure, or out of control, it doesn't make them any easier to deal with. So what do you do when your child misbehaves? Do you comfort them, or do you criticize them for acting up and use it as a teaching opportunity to demonstrate that actions have consequences? One mother faced a difficult challenge after her six-year-old's bratty behavior caused their babysitter to quit. She posted in Reddit's Am I The A-hole, asking if she was wrong for telling her daughter that her repeated bad behavior was the reason for their babysitter quitting...
