25 People Who *Technically* Did What They Were Supposed To

Published

Sure, they didn’t go above and beyond, but *technically,* these people completed the task they were asked to.

25 People Who Probably Got Fired After “Technically” Doing Their Job

Sometimes when you’re asked to do a job or a task, you’re just too tired to do it completely. Occasionally, scraping by with the bare minimum is all you can offer. And those moments are often hilarious. This list is a celebration of technically doing what you’re supposed to while still getting away with putting in minimal effort. These people deserve a medal for their efforts… or lack thereof.

Happy hour flyer

Not going to lie, this flyer is so clever that it would totally make me want to go to this bar. Plus, who can pass up $4 lettuce wraps? That’s a good deal.

Snow scraper

That’s a lot of snow. You can’t expect someone to take the whole ten minutes it would take to remove all the snow from the window. Scoop out enough so you can see, and make your way to work!

Taking the trash out

Mom said to take the trash out to the corner. She didn’t specify that you had to walk it out there. Anything that you can figure out how to do while sitting down is a total win.

Perfect numbers

I didn’t think there was a way to make this assignment easier than it already was, but this school-aged genius proved me wrong. They covered all their bases and got all the questions correct at the same time. This is what we call a win-win.

Change the sign

You can’t say that this guy (I’m assuming it’s a guy) didn’t change the sign. He definitely did. I have a feeling this isn’t exactly what his boss had in mind, but then again, the instructions weren’t that specific.

Two pictures

The instructions were to “bring a CD with two pictures on it.” And that’s exactly what she did. Thinking about the amount of effort it took to print these two pictures on a CD sticker and then apply it to the CD is making me giggle. Not once in that whole process did this woman think, “Oh, did they mean put the files on the CD?”

No. 1 Dad

He was told to push her on the swing, and that is exactly what he’s doing. Look, she’s having fun, and so is he. I’d say this is perfect parenting. If you’re not happy, how can you expect to make her happy?

Brief summary

Whoever wrote this plot summary isn’t wrong about The Santa Clause. I think we often forget that this lighthearted family Christmas film begins with the gruesome death of a beloved children’s figure. But no one will forget anymore.

Double stacked

They weren’t supposed to double stack these boxes, and they didn’t! They triple stacked them! It’s totally different and obviously somehow not at all worse than double stacking them.

Cleaning the floor

Mopping is one of the least fun chores, so if you can find a way to do it that requires minimal effort and is also kind of amusing, I say go for it! Sure, this might not be what her mom had in mind when she told her to scrub the floor, but who cares about the method if it gets done?!

No posters

Joke’s on them. They should have put the “No posters” signs closer together. Because between them? That’s no man’s land. That’s poster central, baby!

Under the doormat

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that they only meant for items that could reasonably fit under the doormat to be placed there. But hey, this delivery person technically followed instructions. Can’t fault them for that.

Siri’s note

I’ve never wanted to slap a robot across the face as much as I want to slap Siri. She’s just so sassy! Yeah, technically she took a note “of that,” but she should be ashamed of herself.

80-100 words

What do you do if you’re the teacher and you get this response from a student on a test? I think you have to give them credit! And then maybe make them do an extra assignment that demonstrates that they know the material.

Extra pickles

This person asked for extra pickles at Subway, and oh boy did that sandwich artist do their job. I love pickles, and even I think that’s too many pickles.

At the gym

He’s not lying to his girlfriend. He is fulfilling his promise of “going to the gym.” He never promised that he would actually work out. This is a genius at work, folks.

Peanut sale

This is a perfect way to technically follow the rules, but I do have to say that they could have picked something to sell that isn’t a common allergen. Now people with peanut allergies who want water are out of luck!

Coach bag

His wife wanted a Coach bag for her birthday, and that’s exactly what he got her! Oh, did she mean a different Coach? Well, this Coach bag is so much better than what she was imagining. I guarantee it.

120 degrees

His girlfriend told him to put the cake in the oven at 120 degrees (Celsius, I assume). So that’s what he did. If I was trying to bake a cake and my partner did this, though, I would be so mad. He ruined her cake for a joke!

Clean plate

He didn’t want to have to wash dishes, so instead of not using a plate, he covered it in plastic wrap, then put the pasta on top. This is so dumb and also so hilarious. The lengths that some people will go to to be lazy…

Who Is Roberta Zaktzer on The Golden Bachelor?

Published

on

‘The Golden Bachelor’ contestant Ellen Goltzer is still in mourning over the death of her friend, Roberta Zaktzer, who died from cancer.

The Gist:

  • Ellen Goltzer, one of the contestants on The Golden Bachelor, paid tribute to her friend Roberta Zaktzer during her introduction.
  • Roberta was a long-time Bachelor fan who died shortly before Ellen left to start filming the show.
  • Ellen’s story was just one of several that had Bachelor fans in tears during the first episode.

The newest season of The Bachelor isn’t quite like previous installments in the franchise. The Golden Bachelor focuses on Gerry Turner, a man in his 70s who is looking for love. It’s a spicy new direction for the series, and one that has many viewers intrigued following the show’s first episode.

That premiere also came with its fair share of moving moments from both Gerry and the show’s contestants. One of the most moving moments came from Ellen Goltzer, one of the contestants, who told the story of Robert Zaktzer, her life-long friend and confidante who recently died after a battle with cancer.

Who was Roberta Zaktzer in ‘The Golden Bachelor?’

Although Roberta herself wasn’t on the show, Ellen’s tribute to her friend left a lasting impression on those watching at home. Roberta died on Sept. 10, 2023, just days before Ellen was set to start her journey on the show. Ellen said it was Roberta who ultimately inspired her to sign up for The Golden Bachelor, meaning she quite literally wouldn’t be on the show without her. Ellen also said that Roberta was a constant source of encouragement in her life.

Roberta died from cancer at just 71 years old, and was a life-long fan of the show. Ellen is a former teacher, and she certainly made a strong first impression on Gerry. The Golden Bachelor may adhere to many of the rules that govern every season of the show, but it seems like this season may be a little more emotional and wholesome than your typical season.

‘The Golden Bachelor’ is already making fans cry.

Ellen’s story was just one of several that moved some viewers of The Golden Bachelor to tears just minutes into the premiere.

Gerry’s own story is deeply moving, as he wasn’t a bachelor his whole life. In fact, Gerry was in a committed marriage for 43 years before his wife Tina died from a sudden illness just as they were beginning their retirement. That story, and Gerry’s full knowledge of what great love looks like, already got this season off to a much more contemplative start.

Article continues below advertisement

Because of their advanced age, the contestants on this season of The Bachelor are likely to be much more grounded and have a deeper understanding of the world. That doesn’t mean that there won’t be plenty of typical Bachelor drama, but it does mean that this season of The Bachelor will likely balance that drama out with a hearty dose of sincerity. Thankfully, Bachelor in Paradise is airing right after, so if you want a little drama, you can just head over there.

The Gist:

  • California Senator Dianne Feinstein has passed away at age 90.
  • Her cause of death has yet to be released.
  • Despite a career that was marred by health complications at the end, she was a trailblazer for women.

On Sept. 29, 2023, it was announced that Dianne Feinstein passed away at age 90. At the time of her death, the California democrat was the oldest sitting senator and had been in office since 1992. The months leading up to her death were plagued with questions about her health as many called for her resignation. Here’s what we know about Senator Feinstein’s cause of death.

What was Dianne Feinstein’s cause of death? Colleagues questioned her health for months.

The New York Times reported that Senator Dianne Feinstein “died on Thursday night, according to a family member.” As of the time of this writing, a cause of death has yet to be revealed and her staff was in the process of being apprised of the situation. Her health was a topic of great discussion on Capitol Hill since early 2023.

According to NBC News, Senator Feinstein had not “voted in the Senate since Feb. 16, 2023,” and in early March, she contracted shingles. At that point, she issued a vague statement regarding her status. “I intend to return as soon as possible once my medical team advises that it’s safe for me to travel,” she said.

Feinstein went on to say, “I understand that my absence could delay the important work of the Judiciary Committee, so I’ve asked Leader Schumer to ask the Senate to allow another Democratic senator to temporarily serve until I’m able to resume my committee work.” Politico also reported that during the two months she was away from the Capitol, Feinstein was briefly in the hospital.

During a hearing on Nov. 17, 2020, Senator Feinstein asked then Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey a question about curbing the spread of misinformation on the social media platform. She then repeated herself, verbatim, despite already getting an answer. This gaffe raised some questions about Feinstein’s mental fitness.

Although many felt that she should have retired long before her health declined, Feinstein’s contribution to the state of California and democracy in general were significant.

Dianne Feinstein got a lot done.

During the 30-plus years of Senator Feinstein’s time as a California Senator, she certainly made the most of it. In 1994, she helped pass the Assault Weapons Ban, after which the “number of deaths from mass shootings fell, and the increase in the annual number of incidents slowed down,” per the Ohio Capital Journal.

She made some incredible strides in protecting our environment with the California Desert Protection Act (1994), passing legislation aimed at Protecting Catastrophic Wildfires (2003), and authorized legislation that “require the Environmental Protection Agency to issue a rule mandating all major sources of greenhouse gases to report their emissions every year,” per her website. As recently as 2019, she was still fighting to protect the planet.

Her concern didn’t stop there. In 2022 Senator Feinstein “authored the Senate version of the Respect for Marriage Act (Public Law 117-228), a bill to repeal the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act, enshrine marriage equality in federal law and provide additional legal protections for marriage equality,” per her website. After it passed, President Biden signed it into law on Dec. 13.

Unfortunately Senator Feinstein’s last few months were some of the most difficult of her career. After sitting on the allegations against then–Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, she actually hugged Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham while arguing about appointee Amy Coney Barrett. This led to her stepping down as chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The good she did far outweighed the missteps made during her final years in the senate. John Burton, a former California Democratic Party chair, told Politico that she “got s–t done by working with people on both sides of the aisle and refusing to get caught up in unnecessary nonsense. To those lining up to run for her seat, I hope you honor the fact that this powerful lady blazed the trail for you.”

The Gist:

  • Izzy and Stacy get engaged in Season 5 of Love Is Blind.
  • When Stacy visits Izzy’s apartment, she has some serious concerns about the way he lives.
  • Izzy has a drawer full of items from other women he has slept with over the years, called his “lost and found.”

Spoiler warning: This article contains spoilers for Season 5 of Love Is Blind.

Some of Love Is Blind‘s contestants might think the worst is over when they leave the pods, meet their respective fiancés face-to-face, and begin the next part of their journeys. But that’s where the drama really gets started and Izzy and Stacy prove that in Season 5. Especially when Izzy shows Stacy his apartment for the first time and introduces her to his “lost and found.”

It’s a drawer full of things that past hook-ups left behind in his home. Izzy does little to hide this part of his apartment. In fact, he is open about it to a fault and Stacy is not happy about the idea of her husband-to-be having such a crass way of describing and organizing other women’s belongings. Can you really blame her?

Izzy actually has a lost and found in his apartment on ‘Love Is Blind.’

Izzy explains that he keeps earrings and other small items that women have left in his apartment in a drawer in the bathroom. It doesn’t look like the drawer is spilling over with items, but still. The fact that he has a lost and found for that sort of thing and calls it that is a major red flag for Stacy. She says as much and it’s clear that this is part of Izzy’s life that gives her the ick.

It’s safe to say that the part of Izzy’s life that involves bringing women home for one night stands is over. However, Stacy just can’t fathom why he wouldn’t throw out these lost and found items before he left home to film in the Love Is Blind pods. It’s a fair question.

‘Love Is Blind’ fans don’t see Izzy and Stacy working out.

The fact that Stacy is majorly turned off by Izzy’s lost and found on Love Is Blind just adds to the handful of reasons why some fans don’t see this pair working out long-term. One viewer tweeted that both Stacy and Izzy are “emotionally unavailable.” Another wrote that they don’t think Stacy is even ready to get engaged, let alone married.

And now that Stacy is seeing some red (or, at the very least, a mix of red and green) flags in Izzy, those fans could be right. Stacy has yet to say “I love you,” and she appears to be concerned about Izzy’s finances. Now, we have this side of him that no one expected. There’s just a lot going on and they haven’t even picked out wedding flowers yet.
