Was thinking this:

BARK BARK

Nick-

I didn't expect you to SIT on this job so long. I understand not being top priority but I only ask that you STAY in touch and GIVE adequate attention to my project. Im not just going to LAY DOWN and let you WALK all over me. I'd appreciate if you could wake UP and SHAKE a leg. Please FETCH me an accurate timeline, or I will have to SPEAK to the boss man.

😂

My pizza from a DoorDash order came without a box and just thrown into a paper bag. by CallMeTransTrash in mildlyinfuriating

One of my guilty pleasures is pizza from 7-11. It’s surprisingly good, and cheap. I’ve ordered it before, and it’s come in a box.

I’m actually glad it came in a bag, because this is a wake up call because when you get a pizza and it comes in a bag, it’s time to reevaluate my entire life. I’m working on a meal plan right now as this monstrosity against the gods is on my desk next to my computer.

Edit/update:

Went running today for the first time in years using the couch to 5k plan.

My disposable e-cig died last night. I’m not getting a new one and will quit nicotine.

Gonna taper off of caffeine, hopefully in the next few weeks.

Gonna spend my day at work working on a weekly schedule so I can get my shit together.

Thank you bag pizza, you’ve really inspired me to change my life for the better.

Coworker announced that she and her SO are finally pregnant after years of trying, I got her a box of pastries to celebrate and when I the party was about to start I open the fridge at work and see this... by Weyland223 in mildlyinfuriating

That's not lack of impulse control. I have impulse control issues and all I see here is malicious behaviour. Whoever did this Id say knew who it was for and out of spite for whatever reason, whether it be jealousy or not liking the person/people, took a bite out of each cake, just enough to make it inedible. If they wanted to try it, they would've done it subtly. If they wanted to eat it, they would've eaten it. One single bite mark in each? Looks personal to me.

I worked for a large sportswear company, that was more checks over stripes if you catch my drift… I worked for the part of the brand that sold specialty basketball shoes from the 70’s.

I was managing the third largest location in the company when something we called “the sausage McMuffin incident” occurred. We had an associate that we had suspected was stealing food, but never had any confirmation since the fridge was tucked in the back of the stock room, out of the line of sight of the cameras and my store was larger so we always had a team of people staffed. So anywho, we had a team lead who was struggling financially due to helping his parents stay afloat, he had gotten the 2 for 2$ deal on the McMuffins and left one on the break room table for his lunch later in the day.

What the associates didn’t know, was the table for the break room was in the sight line of the camera (even though legally the break room was not, since it’s a protected space that you can’t film since you punch out for lunch and eat there).

So my team lead comes back to eat his lunch and the McMuffin is gone… he’s super upset because it’s all he had to eat for the day. So, he comes to me and asks me what happened to it?! I genuinely have no idea, so I start poking around the break area looking for the sandwich. I found the wrapper in the trash and I went to the team lead and told him the wrapper was in the trash and asked where he left his sandwich. As soon as he told me it was on the table, I started a full investigation into who had taken the food. Everyone denied it, so I looked on camera and saw who took it.

I had to write a loss prevention summary and a request for termination due to theft. I then had to sit and explain to HR that had this been in someone’s bag, we would’ve termed immediately due to the nature of going through bags, and stealing things from others belongings. I was so pissed at how casually the associate took the food, unwrapped it, stood right there and ate the whole thing that I requested the termination.

I have never felt so much joy sitting an entitled little brat associate down and explaining that eating other peoples food was equal to going into someone’s bag and taking their lunch money. Even through the process of firing the guy, he still could not fathom how what he did was wrong. He kept saying “but I didn’t steal, I never would steal!” It was like he could not wrap his head around how it was wrong to just walk back and eat peoples food they brought for themselves for lunch.

It’s still one of those moments I look back at and think “people are weird man”.

The comment is so true but the first comment just drives me crazy by Conzoar in mildlyinfuriating

The point that the median salary in Texas for a teacher is about $55,000 a year. Let's assume it took them 10 years to get there (I don't know the actual stats just throwing numbers out for arguments sake).

In that same 10 years, how much do you think the minimum wage worker will be making? I haven't worked minimum wage in about 14 years but when I did you were lucky to get a 25 to 50 cent raise a year. So let's say it's 50 cents. That means in 10 years the minimum wage worker will only be at $41,000.

I would also like to add the statistics in the image are even further misleading. They calculated the teachers beginning wage AFTER taxes and the minimum wage BEFORE taxes to even the numbers up to make it look worse. None of what they said is a lie, it is tweaking statistics to push an agenda. Hence my comment.

Hope that helps and I didn't think you were disrespectful.

My wife kept threatening to throw away my favorite pair of yard work shorts. Today I found them like this. by buckeyespud in mildlyinfuriating

Also a wife. That is a bitch move if ever there was. She’d lose her motherfucking mind if you did that to anything of hers. You should see my husband’s mowing get-up, especially in hot weather. Your wife would stroke out. I don’t give a flying fuck as long as I don’t have to mow (9 acres, 4.5 mowable)

Lol...ok so my husband has a lot of random PJ pants. A couple summers ago we were still in an apartment and dealing with stiflingly hot and humid weather. He decided to take a pair of scissors and basically turn one of his oldest/rattiest pants into this crotchless monstrosity that allows the dick n balls to hang freely and enjoy the breeze while he's chilling at his computer. When we moved I asked if I could throw them away and he wouldn't let me, and I didn't need to threaten/promise to make him wear them if he kept them, because I knew he would, and he did. And I probably love him even more for it.

Only mildly infuriating?

I’d be fucking livid!! I don’t get mad about a lot of things. I don’t fight with my wife a ton. Argue and disagree yes, but yelling, slamming doors, genuinely mad at each mother fights are really rare.

This would lead to one.

I can’t even fathom taking something she routinely uses and has actively made known that she is keeping and still using, taking that and ruining it.

That’s behavior that speaks volumes about her and it isn’t good.

I think your wife has issues. I have been a wife for a long time and it would be a cold day in hell before I pulled a move like that.

Power over another is not a good for a relationship.

Tell her to do the fucking lawn work!!! I am a wife let me make that clear...
