After getting fired, this guy’s story ends in the best possible way.

Imgur user TotallyNota30YearOldWhiteDude got a lot of love on the social media platform for getting the best revenge on an employer who screwed him over.

Over a year ago, he took a job at as the director of web development for a small agency that had “horrible turnover” and a “toxic environment.”

The company worked him 60-plus hours a week, leading him to be hospitalized for exhaustion.


Six months later, he planned a much needed week-long vacation to destress from his job take time to focus on his ADHD, sensory processing disorder, and depression.

His vacation was in a place with zero connectivity, so he diligently prepared his team for his absence and everything went off without a hitch.

But management confused his amazing preparation with “we don’t need him,” and he was fired three days after returning from vacation.

After being fired, many of his former coworkers left the company as well, and he began working as a contractor to provide for his special needs child.

Things quickly fell apart at the old company, so the president called him to ask if he’d like to do some contract work. “I give them my rates, marked up by a good chunk because, well, they need me and not the other way around. They agree,” the Imgur user said.

Like a true IT guy, he celebrated his victory over the man with a series of Socially Awkward Penguin memes.

There is a strange right-wing logic that suggests when minorities fight for equal rights it's somehow a threat to the rights already held by those in the majority or who hold power.

Like when the Black Lives Matter movement started, many on the right claimed that fighting for black people to be treated equally somehow meant that other people's lives were not as valuable, leading to the short-lived All Lives Matter movement.

This same "oppressed majority" logic is behind the new Straight Pride movement which made headlines in August after its march through the streets of Boston.

For most of us, the hypothetical question of whether we would stick with a boyfriend or girlfriend through the trials of cancer and the treatments is just that – a hypothetical question. We would like to think we would do the right thing, but when Max Allegretti got the chance to put his money where mouth is, he didn't hesitate for a second.

Where did we go wrong as a society to make women feel uncomfortable about breastfeeding in public?

No one should feel they have the right to tell a woman when, where, and how she can breastfeed. The stigma should be placed on those who have the nerve to tell a woman feeding her child to "Cover up" or to ask "Where's your modesty?"

Breasts were made to feed babies. Yes, they also have a sexual function but anyone who has the maturity of a sixth grader knows the difference between a sexual act and feeding a child.

The Me Too movement has shed light on just how many actresses have been placed in positions that make them feel uncomfortable. Abuse of power has been all too commonplace. Some actresses have been coerced into doing something that made them uncomfortable because they felt they couldn't say no to the director. And it's not always as flagrant as Louis C.K. masturbating in front of an up-and-coming comedian, or Harvey Weinstein forcing himself on actresses in hotel rooms.

But it's important to remember that you can always firmly put your foot down and say no. While speaking at The Hollywood Reporter's annual Actress Roundtable, Jennifer Lopez opened up about her experiences with a director who behaved inappropriately. Laura Dern, Awkwafina, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong'o, and Renee Zellweger were also at the roundtable.
