People Who Didn't Give A Heck

Modern life has a lot of institutionalized authority and expectations. We're so caught up with our own lives, work and relationships that sometimes we forget that we can just choose to not comply with society's expectations. It's almost always a bad idea to tell off your boss or get revenge on a lying customer, but there are some people who do not give a rip.

    Text - The_Bitter_Bear 908 points · 6 days ago · edited 6 days ago I was on an internship that was a train wreck. I started later than some of the other interns. Turns out our main office space would flood when it rained. I came in to find the lobby and office with an inch of standing water. One of the other interns walked in, looked at all the water, sighed, sloshed over to his computer, picked up his power strip, flicked the water off, sat down, turned his computer on, and started working.

    Text - mechtonia 9.7k points · 6 days ago In a meeting with the very arrogant boss of our department and the company executives, there was a question about a major mistake that costs the company a product recall. Our boss laid the blame on our department, before he was over us, saying we had modified a piece of equipment incorrectly. One of my co-workers, a very humble man, quietly said to nobody in particular "I have pictures in my notes". Meaning, "I am throwing the boss under the bus in front

    Text - juggleaddict 1.6k points · 6 days ago Had an entry level programming class in college where a few students came in with multiple boxes of eggos and a toaster. They just plugged it in at the side of the class and started passing out plates of waffles. The professor eventually noticed, asked if they were making waffles to which they confirmed, chuckled, and kept right on from where he left off... Tasty :)

    Text - GandalfTheGrey1991 1.1k points · 6 days ago My mum, grandma and great-grandma were walking down the main-street of a town when my great- grandmas underwear fell down from underneath her dress. She stepped out if them like nothing happened and kept strolling down the street. Grandma quickly snatched up the underwear and shoved them in her handbag so nobody would see.

    Text - LethalMindNinja 1.1k points - 6 days ago I once was walking down the street with one of my bosses. Total stoner. Him not me. We go to cross the street at a stop sign and get part way across and the car lurches forward and hits my boss hard enough that he falls onto the hood. He was mid sentance when the car hit him and he literally didn't even skip a beat. He just continued his sentence like nothing at all happened while keeping eye contact with me the entire time! Not only that but when

    Text - UndividedIndecision 1.3k points · 6 days ago One time there was a horrific wreck on the interstate that had me stuck there in traffic for about 5 hours. About an hour into it, a guy in front of me said "fuck this", popped the trunk, pulled out a motorized razor scooter and rode away. He hadn't come back by the time everyone else started moving.

    Text - ClassAndAnAss 4.3k points · 6 days ago This is one of my favorite “fuck it" stories. I used to work at a country club. There was a girl (let's call her Mia) that had worked there for 3-4years before me. Mia was told she was to replace the wedding manger immediately when she started, but had YET to be given the job after 3-4 years. She confided in me that she was done and ready to quit and move on and this would be her last wedding. I told her to do what was best for her. The country club

After explaining the situation, the manager realized she was just being rude and agreed with the employee who was getting yelled at by the customer. At which point the customer tells the manager to "Go fuck herself". The manager then proceeds to bend over in a weird way to make it seem like she's trying to literally fuck herself. Then she shrugs, says: "Can't" and walks a

We have people come in with gunshot wounds, concealed weapons. She has single- handedly tackled violent patients with superhuman strength because they're high on meth, etc. A disheveled guy came to be treated for assault, to be arrested after discharge. He was giving everyone shit all night, almost made his nurse

    Text - Hopesick_2231 3.9k points · 6 days ago I teach pre-kindergarten at a public school. My students are 4 and 5 years old. Last year, I had a rule that no more than 3 kids could be at a learning center at any given time. When we transitioned from carpet time to center time, I would call on the kids who were sitting quietly to pick their centers first. I had two kids sitting next to each other: James, who was sitting quietly waiting to be called on, and Allison, who kept loudly and rather obno

    Text - Delusional-Writer 2.2k points · 6 days ago In 9th grade one of my teachers said that old threat that goes like "If you don't want to learn, then get up and leave." to the whole class. This kid actually gets up and leaves the classroom. It took a few mimutes for the teacher to notice while we all quietly laughed. When she does notice, she send someone to get the kid which takes like, another 10 minutes and when they do get back, the guy is super chill. The teacher is so in shock that she c

We solely relied on welfare and then I became the main income provider at 15 through part-time jobs, before moving out on my own at 16. It was the same argument every day, I would bank transfer the rental and utility payments but refused to hand over cash because she'd spend it on liquor. She began throwing objects and flipping out, and eventually said "Fine, if you do

Well we hired this young punk

    Text - JaiRenae 1.2k points · 6 days ago I was in line at the grocery store a few years ago. Ahead of me was a mother with her daughter who was about 5 years old. The little girl had a lollypop that was in her mouth most of the time... until she pulled it out to ask her mom something and promptly dropped it. Before anyone could say anything, she'd swooped it back up and popped it back in her mouth. The cashier looked disgusted. Mom just shrugged and said, "She's eaten worse," and continued the t
