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.

Sex Workers Disclose The Weirdest Things People Actually Paid Them To Do

Sex workers definitely have an interesting career. I think, naturally, we are all kind of curious about their day-to-day. Or maybe it's more like night-to-night. Still, it is a good thing that people are becoming more tolerant and accepting towards people with all kinds of careers. We all have to pay the rent somehow, the landlord doesn't care how we acquire our funds. Whether it's by selling cars or sticking things up your.... I digress.

Anyway, even with a job as unpredictable as them, there must be times where sex workers are caught way off guard by the requests they get. 

This Reddit thread capitalizes on such outlandish moments.

Women Uncover The Creepiest Things Their Bosses Actually Said To Them

Power can go to someone's head very quickly. You realize people are doing things for you, sometimes even if you don't even ask, and then you start to tell yourself, "Hey, I must be a pretty important person, I don't have to treat people with respect anymore, dope!" Well, for everyone working 'underneath' you... It sucks. It's so hard because unless somebody plans to quit, they can just tell their boss to screw off. Boy, would it feel good though. Only in my dreams.

Fifteen Relatable Tweets For People Who Low-Key Miss Being Unemployed

These are very tough times, and anyone lucky enough to be employed has a lot to be grateful for. However, it is hard to get motivated sometimes, and then we fantasize about the days when we had no money but all the time in the world to do stuff like keep up with TV series, and paint our nails. I guess the grass is always greener, it seems that way, doesn't it?

Anyway, for anyone losing copious amounts of steam at work, you will definitely find these tweets to be relatable AF.

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?

Boss Dragged For Claiming Employee's Morning Sickness 'Counteracts Feminist Movement'

If you ever need a stark reminder that sexism is still very much alive and well, here's a story for ya. A male employer recently posted a rant on Reddit's Am I The AHole, expressing his displeasure over his (by the sounds of it, very much overworked) female employee's productivity being affected by her morning sickness. Yeah, no sh*t Sherlock. Try going through one day of pregnancy, and then mansplain about what a breeze it is. He said that since she was only in her "first trimester and barely even pregnant yet," he didn't think it was "fair to other women that she was using a normal bodily function as an excuse for low productivity." Ummm OK. Death is also a 'normal bodily function,' so I'm not sure that argument holds up. The cherry on the top of his ignorant, misogynistic rant was him telling her, "This is what women fought to counteract during the feminist movement." OK, so two things are clear to me: not only does this idiot have zero comprehension of how difficult pregnancy can be, but he's completely missed the point that his dismissal of her medical issues because it's pregnancy-related, is the sexist part. As you can imagine, Redditors were quick to jump down his throat, calling him out on being the a—hole that he is. God help his wife when she is pregnant.

Painfully True Tweets About Having to Work

These tweets are super funny and unfortunately, very true or in other words: "Having a job is cool til you gotta go to work"

And by "having to go to work" it's more like having to roll out of bed and go sit at your desk in your living room, or on the couch, or wherever really. It all comes down to one thing...work. At this point, we kinda miss actually having to get dressed and going to work. At least to have some kind of action. But, also we know once it is time for that, we will still not be happy. It's a no-win situation at this point.

Passive-Aggressive Email Phrases, Translated

When you spend 40+hours in an office behind a screen, chances are that your coworkers will get on your nerves. Everyone has a bad day, whether it's because of work or stuff going on in your personal life, but societal norms dictate that we have to keep it together in the workplace and not lose our shit. Instead, it has become socially acceptable to become passive-aggressive, which is usually seen best in work emails. These phrases are ones that we can all attest to having used at some point in our careers and show how petty, yet professional you can be while still getting your point across. But here's what they really mean...
