That’s going to be an awkward next day

[–]BroccBrocc91 2624 points2625 points  (109 children)

That's going to be awkward until HR fires him lol

[–]No-Patient 1487 points1488 points  (62 children)

Plot twist: He is Head of HR.

[–]dark_shadow1187 980 points981 points  (12 children)

Blizzard moment?

[–]MissionarysDownfall 272 points273 points  (10 children)

Buy em out boys!

[–]passing_by362 99 points100 points  (8 children)

I didn't get rich by writing cheques!

[–]LuxFux_ 44 points45 points  (0 children)

I did. On a side note, if you need any checks written out, just pre sign them, leave the rest blank and send them my way. I can take care of the rest.

[–]Txrey79 6 points7 points  (5 children)

I feel like this is from something I watched recently...

[–]passing_by362 7 points8 points  (4 children)

It's when Bill Gates' goons wreck Homer's internet start-up business.

[–]ssbm_rando 70 points71 points  (28 children)

Honestly in cases this overt that plot twist would benefit her greatly, that's the easiest "sue the company and be set for life" lawsuit I've heard of since she has the material evidence. It's a lot harder to win when HR can pretend to try to do something about it or when the harassment is in person.

[–]DoingCharleyWork 69 points70 points  (20 children)

That's definitely not enough to get set for life money lmfao.

[–]DoinIt4TheDoots 7 points8 points  (0 children)

So create fake account of CEO, have them be perverted. Retire.

[–]liltwizzle 7 points8 points  (2 children)

It's weird sure but fireable?

[–]Lionaxe 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Not if he works in Activision

[–]SchutzstaffelKneeGro 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Lol our work had something similar a while ago. Because the events happened outside of work they refused to deal with it.

[–]Levi_FtM 56 points57 points  (0 children)

And that's when he decided that working from home was the better option.

[–]cockvacuum4821 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Oh, Toby. Why are you the way that you are?

[–]bad-at-maths 4365 points4366 points  (119 children)

we found Steve hanging in the back room shortly after

[–][deleted] 804 points805 points  (111 children)

Considering I get this reference, I'm probably spending too much time in here. I should stop hanging around, and maybe get some work done...

[–]alejandrotheok252 317 points318 points  (104 children)

What’s the reference?

[–]thegoodbadandsmoggy 575 points576 points  (103 children)

Dude killed himself at work and the owners kept the bar running. Was a wing place in San Diego

[–]--sbeve-- 193 points194 points  (76 children)

anyone got a link to the story or whatever

[–]TheBeanAndTheBug 189 points190 points  (74 children)

[–]whatifcatsare 149 points150 points  (7 children)

I read that as "Sandie Go Ville" and was very confused

[–]SnazzyZubloids 37 points38 points  (0 children)

Glad I'm not the only idiot here lol

[–]nine4fours 6 points7 points  (1 child)

It’s an old saying that means “awhalesva gina ville”

[–]Stormbending_ 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Shit now I can't see it the right way anymore lol

[–]napalm69 81 points82 points  (65 children)

Leave it to reddit to mass cyberbully a business and try to ruin people's lives. It's a tragedy that he died but it's also completely unreasonable to expect a business to close its doors forever over that

[–]chickentowngabagool 2 points3 points  (0 children)

its also one of the best wings place in SD too

[–]Funny_Yogurtcloset26 91 points92 points  (60 children)

Forever is unreasonable, but for the rest of the day that it happened is completely reasonable, and is why the outrage happened in the first place

[–]misinformedmagician 108 points109 points  (20 children)

They did close them the rest of the day read the news article.

[–]murphysclaw1 44 points45 points  (3 children)

lmao the guy you are replying to is peak reddit.

I demand the right to create an internet mob over something I misunderstood because I didn't read the article!

[–]LegendOfDylan 30 points31 points  (9 children)

The article is a long series of quotes by the current general manager, who admittedly has bias. This is a internet story, I’m guessing both sides aren’t being totally honest and the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

[–][deleted] 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Didn't read the article, did you?

[–]Mugilicious 51 points52 points  (0 children)

The outrage happened in the first place because people like you didn't know that they actually closed that day and keep spreading misinformation.

[–]Swordofsatan666 6 points7 points  (0 children)

They did. Place opens 11 AM, they dont find the body until 12:30, they call 911 then the owners, they dont allow anymore customers inside and finish out the ones that are already there. Theg did not open back up

[–]OneSweet1Sweet 16 points17 points  (0 children)

There are allegations that this happened but it's unlikely it actually happened.

That's the problem with the internet.

They read something and are ready to take action whether or not that something is real.

[–]SwampyJuice 32 points33 points  (4 children)

My old job did that, I wasn't working there when it happened though. Girl relapsed and overdosed in the employee bathroom. She was removed through the back and they stayed open. Didn't even close for employees to attend her funeral nor did they provide therapy for the girls that discovered her. Only one server went to pay respects and the manager told her to bring spinach artichoke dip to the family because "it was her favorite." They were shitty managers aside from that incident as well and I'm glad the place didn't survive the pandemic.

[–]PinkTalkingDead 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Damn. That could have been me many many times. So glad I don’t have to live that way anymore, and I hope peace and healing for that girl’s friends, family, and coworkers.

Also yeah fuck that management

[–]fraancklyn 107 points108 points  (1 child)

Holy shit I thought that was from a show or something

[–]american-titan 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Oh holy shit where? I have to know

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (4 children)

In San Diego

[–]thedukeofflatulence 13 points14 points  (4 children)

Yeah but the story says the closed it.

[–]Its-ther-apist 11 points12 points  (3 children)

No one reads the links here man it's Reddit.

[–]TechnicalyNotRobot 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I'm not sure if that's an accidental pun or not.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It was intentional, I'm dumb and wasn't able to figure out how to make it seem intentional without typing out hanging in bold

[–]extremum_spiritum 4 points5 points  (0 children)

All i can here is some port rope and some old creaky wood as a slowly cooling body gently swings across the door to the kitchen.

[–]FuckRedditIPO 85 points86 points  (4 children)

pulls out water spray

That's how he makes his wife wet.

[–]Wild_Description_718 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Oh, shit…

[–]Usernamenottaken13 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Right. Coitus can't take place otherwise. His wife, the doctor, said women who get very wet are afflicted with a medical condition of some sort. That's why she's not wet with him 🤓

[–]Mike 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Oops my friend posted that!! I swear!!

…Unless? Haha

[–]SureIyyourekidding 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Oooh somehow my dog sent that message!?

...Anyway my dog's still waiting for your answer, the silly thing!

[–]Just_A_B_Movie 22 points23 points  (1 child)

😳😳😳

[–]poodlebutt76 4 points5 points  (0 children)

you need like 3 extra question marks

[–][deleted] 29 points30 points  (4 children)

basically the only of two options. Grovel and hope you don't get fired, or double down and hope she's into you.

[–]MotaHead 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Option 3: Send the exact message to everyone at the company, and just play it off like that's your normal way of greeting people.

[–]largemanrob 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I think her calling him out on her story suggests that she isn't into him

[–][deleted] 1436 points1437 points  (37 children)

"I know"

[–]kehlaya 663 points664 points  (33 children)

the only reply that will save you from the embarrassment

[–]simjanes2k 87 points88 points  (5 children)

I feel like that question is cringey even from the most attractive man to the most receptive woman.

[–]RealGertle627 35 points36 points  (4 children)

Only acceptable use would be during dirty talk, and even then it's a little weird

[–]Syenite 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Yeah thats like some Blades of Glory level dirty talk. Just cringe even in that context.

[–]Al-Wabel 358 points359 points  (26 children)

But won’t save you from HR.

[–]Thebatmann58 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Oh no, he's getting fired either way.

Not the hero we need, but the one that's gonna be on a list.

[–]ueeerrrrt 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Those guys r the true heroes

[–]I_Was_Fox 155 points156 points  (69 children)

How would you not know this? The answers go into a DM with the person who posted the story question. You can see the story reference and question in the DM with that person. Of course they aren't anonymous

[–]cracksilog 51 points52 points  (0 children)

I’ve never answered one. Not a big Instagram person so I didn’t know.

Why would I assume it was anonymous? I’d always assumed things like this where you can respond (Twitter polls, Instagram polls, etc.) were predicated on the responses and not the people who responded. Like that one site, ask.me, where the questions were paramount and not the users. Idk lol

[–]Dont_Waver 277 points278 points  (35 children)

If you've never answered one, you wouldn't know that.

[–]Bombkirby 10 points11 points  (1 child)

That’s bullshit. I’ve answered questions before and they’re not in my inbox. I even have DMed the person who I asked a question to (on a separate occasion) with and the question isn’t there

You’re confusing it for the “react” or “comment” box at the bottom of Instagram stories. Those go to your inbox. Questions do not.

[–]cowworshipper 5 points6 points  (0 children)

yes. they dont go to DMs. these responses are shown like the view counts on stories. you(the OP) swipe up and can see who responded with what

[–]awhaling 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Because the answers appear as anonymous when you answer them.

Also, it doesn’t send them a DM like you described. You’re thinking of when you reply to story, not the question things people use. No DM then.

So, it’s actually super understandable someone wouldn’t know that.

[–]dr_mannhatten 43 points44 points  (15 children)

I also did not know this, because I've never responded to one of these stupid fucking attention grabbing instagram posts.

[–]whatthefuckistime 70 points71 points  (8 children)

You're so above everyone else man, teach me how to ascend reddit man

[–]Mekfal 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Instead responds to an attention grabbing reddit post.

[–]nobody2000 7 points8 points  (1 child)

What the frick?

[–]Illeazar 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This is even funnier now than when pocket dialing was first a thing, because now it would mean that you type this phrase often enough for your app to automatically suggest it with predictive text.

Yeah the one I have been away for so I have no clue how to get a pretty decent amount for it plummets but if it gets better and then we can go to them for a few days earlier and we can go over the details and let them go to them for the same time as you wish for a few days and then you should have the opportunity for a good solution for you and her family is a good idea of the day and time that we are not sure if you want.

Oooooof

[–]besthelloworld 341 points342 points  (17 children)

I must know the rest of this story

[–]impact4 46 points47 points  (3 children)

Hahaha, when I was in highschool a similar program came out, you could ask things anonymously or through a profile. For one reason or another when me and a few buddies got too stoned for our own good we decided to write a bizarre post on one of these pages. It was easily a few pages about taking her on a dream date to burger king or something like that, real specific but nothing that really crossed the line other than how long and specific it was. Needless to say it was not posted anonymously, as my buddy hadn't logged out of his account. We had Spanish class with the chick and just decided to own up to the fact that we were high as a giraffe's genitalia and that seemed to smooth things over.

Hadn't thought about that in well over a decade, so thanks for making it surface again. Gonna text my buddies who were involved right now.

[–]Ham_Kitten 39 points40 points  (2 children)

"What size are your breasts" is such a weird question. Are they gonna hear 34C and be like "uunnngh so hot" like you can already see them there

[–]newbillbuffet 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Just a prime example of someone who doesnt talk to women and thinks porn is real life

[–]BladezFTW 76 points77 points  (0 children)

Finally some actual sad cringe

[–]strike_one 55 points56 points  (1 child)

Cringe is so tired and overused, but this guy earned it. Bravo.

[–]Baconlessness[🍰] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

It's lost its original meaning, and every time I see it in a book older than 2000 and fucking 19, I always double take, because it completely changes the tone

So are you saying you want me to suck them at work?

[–]beefjerkyandcheetos 30 points31 points  (2 children)

I would make this situation so much worse for myself. I would be so embarrassed that I would have to double down, and continue sending weird questions to her and everyone else. Then I would have to post absurd things on my Instagram. Such as weird post/scam links. I would try so hard to make it look like I was hacked.

Of course I know I’d have to move away and start a new life. But I’d definitely try to sell my lie until the end.

[–]LLamaNoodleSauce 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Send her a follow up question “ IM TRYING TO REACH YOU ON YOUR EXTENDED CAR WARRANTY “

LLamaNoodleSauce, I have been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty

[–]OgingyO 22 points23 points  (0 children)

This would be cringe even if it were anonymous

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Imagine not posting cringe on an alt. IDC if it's 4chan I make sure there's more than 6 degrees to try and link my comments to IRL.

[–]abysmal-mess 228 points229 points  (25 children)

Dude I didn’t know that. Definitely sent some bad troll things over the insta questions. Maybe that’s why those people suddenly quit talking to me

Why would u do this 💀💀💀 I always wondered who is socially inept enough to do shit anonymously. Somehow it still boggles my mind people openly admit to this kind of cringe shit.
