The Best Stuff People Found In The Garbage

"Value" is a very slippery concept, and what one person might choose to throw away could equally be seen as a major score for someone else. There are idiots throwing away guitars, TVs and jackets just because of a small fixable issue, and it's the sworn duty of the rest of us, the shameless garbage sifters, to pluck that ripe fruit-o-the-trash. Ironically it's often the stuff that people try to sell that's the real garbage, like this weird and dumb stuff people tried selling online. For a glimpse at the kind of people throwing nice stuff away, here are some of the most expensive things people witnessed.

Unfair Manager Threatens Staff, They All Walk Out

It's everyone's fantasy at some point in time to be able to just say enough is enough and walk out the door of their job. These employees were put through enough that they felt it was a reasonable option. And not only that, they came back for burgers. For another satisfying walkout story, here's an employee who walked out but ended up getting promoted. And here are some "screw this, I'm out" moments.

Knowledgable Boss Is Underestimated, Proceeds To Win Tech Support

We've seen our fair share of bosses that never should've been put in their places of power in the first place. With that being said, it's nothing short of deeply satisfying to see a boss show the rest of the world why they were given the reins like they were. This boss pulled off some straight up tech support magic, and left everyone else in speechless awe. Pretty awesome that she was able to extract that number in under 8 minutes. You don't even need to know what that means to appreciate the timely manner with which she pulled it off.

Employee Gets Back At Unreasonable Manager By Working Exact Hours

Many jobs require their employees to be on deck at irregular or unscheduled times, which can get a little hairy if they're not being paid for it. Many bosses know that this isn't exactly fair so they'll cut their employees some slack here and there when they know the schedule is weird. This manager didn't, so he got hit with the classic, much like this other employee who derailed their incompetent boss by working their scheduled hours.

Mad Lads Who Didn't Let The World Get In Their Way

Sure, the world might have its own expectations about what is proper conduct, but the mad lads of the world don't see it that way. Mad lads pave their own way through shenanigans, trickery and bold brashness of all kinds. They may have different ideas of what counts as out-of-bounds, but they're all maniacal mad lads who don't give a dang.

Employee Points Out Security Concern, Nobody Listens, Robbery Ensues

Sometimes, the only way that you can get through to people that seem committed to not listening to your warnings is to take matters into your own hands, and show them why they should've listened. This particular move was certainly a bold one, and we can't say we'd advise anyone to follow suit. But at least the point was proved, and the security measures in the museum were brought up to the level they needed to be at. Check out some more gold from Tumblr with this wild thread where Tumblr users go all in on "The Incredibles" analysis.

Man, nothing quite sinks the spirits like when you realize you have a nasty neighbor next door. We're all just trying to coexist reasonably peacefully, but some neighbors make that seem like an unattainable reality. Take this neighbor for instance. Grandpa tried to have a simple chat with the dude, and the dude proceeded to be nasty, and shove Grandpa's considerate kindness right back in his face. Well, Grandpa pulled off quite the successful long con from there.

This guy was really playing with fire when it came to how close he took his drone to that train. Literally flew it into a moving boxcar at one point. That could've ended up being a complete disaster.

What a power move when he phoned up his old man just to tell him that he was about to take home that million dollars. John seems like one of those human beings who just walks around with an encyclopedia in the back of his brain.

Guy Beats Craigslist Scammer At Their Own Game

Man, these incompetent scammers just keep on coming right out of the woodwork. In this case, it sounds like the scammer was in way over their head from the start. On top of that, they'd clearly overplayed their scam to such a point that it was just going to be too easy to rightfully shut them down. Hence, the payment request and what we'd imagine was a very surprised and displeased scammer.
