When a boss isn't willing to respect you in even the smallest of ways, it can make going to work each morning feel like a trek through the blazing gates of hell.

But what happens when you decide to turn that around, and leave in a blaze of glory?

Well, Reddit user watwasthat did just that.

This story was too good not to share.



I'm just out of college, working in a wings place as a cook.

I start working there, and everything is going okay, except for the fact that I'm really underpaid. I'm making minimum wage as 1 of 2 cooks in the restaurant.

I work there for a few months and the manager sits down to talk with me. We discuss a few things and I bring up the fact that I really deserve a raise. I was working 50-60 hours a week, and the compensation based on my effort really wasn't evening out. He basically told me to f*ck off and that cooks are a dime a dozen. So I told him I was disappointed with his retort.

Times were tough for me at that point, so I bit my lip and just went back to work. The next few months were hell. The manager of the restaurant openly put me down in front of other employees, and constantly berated me for asking for more money. He put me on back to back to back opening and closing shifts and sent people home on purpose, so that I'm the only one left to clean the kitchen at the end of the night. I begin to lose my chill with this job.

So finally super bowl Sunday rolls around and for those unaware, this is a very very busy day for restaurants that make wings. I get into work and everyone is already pissed. I ask what's up and they tell me the other cook didn't show up and nothing is prepped for the day. I roll up my sleeves and start working. We get everything set and I start making wings for the orders. I'm working my ass off and my manager comes up to me and starts giving me the same shit. The phones are ringing like crazy and honestly there are more orders than the restaurant can handle. It's f*cking chaos. Then some of the managers friends (not employees) come into the kitchen and start f*cking with all my stuff. Moving things, disorganizing stuff, sitting on my prep counters. I tell them to gtfo and my manager storms in and lays the f*ck into me. Tells me I'm a worthless piece of shit, I never do anything right, I'm not worth more than minimum wage and I never f*cking put in any extra effort.

That was it. My brained just clicked and I stopped giving a f*ck about anything. I stood up straight and stretched out my arms wide. Slowly took off my kitchen apron and removed my hat. Starred dead in the managers eyes and calmly but sternly said. "Have an enjoyable super bowl Sunday." I threw the the apron and my hat in the fry oil basins grabbed my bag and walked passed the rest of the employees who's mouth were hanging open and out the back to the ever fading ring of phones ringing. Arrived at my home and met up with my room mates.

I told them the story and we decided to order 200 wings and watch the game.


I bet that felt good!

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
