In one vignette, a can of White Claw spiked seltzer is seen at the bottom of an office fish tank. Pellegrino calls himself the "White Claw King of NYC" on his Instagram profile.

Music is heard in the background of many of the video's clips, including Whitney Houston's "How Will I Know" and Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch's "Good Vibrations."

Well, if you have bad taste in music, I guess it follows that you have bad taste in booze.  Marky Mark?  Really?

Why'd he have to fark with the fish?!

I'm sure this will help his job hunt and his former employer will give him a glowing recommendation for future positions.

No matter how much I hated my job/boss/company I never did anything that could hurt me. When you apply for a job are you going to say, "Sure you can contact all of my former employers except XYZ company." It just raises red flags. Interviewed one woman for a position and when she told us she didn't want us to contact her former employers our Spidey-sense was activated. Found out later that she had trashed the office at the last place she worked.

Wahlberg did a sudden pivot after his serious of hate crimes from 1987-1992, didn't he?

No one hits as hard as life, there's no sense in purposefully standing in the way of the punch.

It was weird how Malcolm X was a fashion statement for a short period of time.  I wonder how Marky Mark plays that down now that he's trying to be a play cop.

There were Malcolm X corn chips for sale around the time the Spike Lee movie came out.  GIS doesn't seem to have any images of them, sad.

White Claw = the new Zima.

This guy is an idiot, for the above reason, and because if he was underpaid, he probably can't afford a long stint on the dole.

Unless his family is rich, or he triggered his trust fund covenant by getting and holding a real job for a prescribed length of time.

Either way, fark him, fark his boss, and fark his profession. SSR is a joke: "Hey, we have a ton of this security we want to sell you, and here is some totally unbiased research explaining why it's a great buying opportunity!"

My summer goal is to find another job, just about anywhere.

Unfortuantely I have to have some standards as to the job itself, so the hunt goes slower than I'd like. On the other hand, when the time comes i'll work hard for a smooth transition so the next poor bastard, er, employee will at least not have me to blame for their many, many woes.

I am doing the same, my current job is going down the toilet fast, we have a whole new management team and they are redoing all our forms while the important stuff gets neglected. I have to get out of here before we lose the account but I don't want to head to someplace as bad, so I am taking my time with the hunt.

I quit a job yesterday, after a week and a half. There were many warning signs, but the worst was the fact that the boss had replaced every keyboard in the place with those awful Mac chicklet keyboards. He did this because he uses a Mac at home and doesn't want to have to get used to 2 types of keyboard. He had all of the PC keyboards replaced on the vague off-chance that he might have to use that machine at some point, including the designers' PCs, the account's PC, and at least 6 PCs attached to various vinyl cutters, routers and digital printers.

He also thought that I could learn the job by sitting and watching him. All day long. Nothing but watching this asshole work. For a week.

And he constantly criticised the other designers.

At around 4pm yesterday, I stood up, said "I'm going to head off", shook his hand, thanked him for the opportunity, and left. A close shave, I feel.

Legal won't let you say anything bad about an ex-employee anyway.  They'll just verify that he worked there between x date and y date at such and such a position.

/Csb time:
Worked for a company for 6 yrs & was already looking elsewhere as I had to fire 2 of my employees because they couldn't meet the ever escalating goals.   They increased them from year to year & didn't understand we had maxed out, thought they could keep increasing them but keep the pay the same.

They offered me a higher level position in a pilot program, so I took it.  After 18 months it was such a success they wanted to do it in all the regional offices.  I was working in one of them & saw the writing on the wall with duplicate staff. The mgr of this office was an incompetent buffoon who thought by yelling at his staff once a month, he was an effective mgr.

Interviewed with a competitor & was in the salary negotiating phase when they scheduled a meeting with me that included the higher ups & the mgr who's office I was working next door too. Pretty much knew what was coming & no way in hell I was going to work for this guy.

By the time the meeting came had accepted the new position, wrote my letter of resignation & had it with me.   They started out with how great a job I'd done, blah blah blah.  Then they got to the point & said they were dissolving my team & they'd bring them under this mgr & I'd be reporting to him as his asst mgr.

Had some ppwk for me to sign with my new position title but same salary, etc.   I opened my case & handed them my resignation letter.   The dumbfounded looks on their faces were priceless & still remember them to this day.

They asked why & I told them I had enjoyed the opportunity & the experience, all the right corporate bs words but that I had accepted a position elsewhere at my current lvl but higher pay (it was the same pay actually).  The regional mgr said he'd be retiring in 5-6 years & I'd be in a good position to take over for him.  I had gone to quite a few Friday happy hours with his sups to know what kind of hell that would be.

Afterwards my direct boss asked me if it was because of the mgr & if I'd be willing to transfer to another office.  Had no desire to move for the same pay but parted on good terms with him.

Word got out & at my going away party/ happy hour I drank for free & it was like I was a folk hero for a day.  The new position turned out to be a shiat show but I somehow managed to last 3 years at it, before taking my current job that I love & allows me to post on fark.

Officially? Yes. You can typically confirm only three things - that the person in question was an employee, the start and end date of their employment, and their title or position at the end date of their employment.

Unofficially? That's practically why Glassdoor, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc., etc., exist. Companies maintain blacklists, engage in nepotism, and horse-trade employees like they were baseball cards. Apple, Google, Intel, and Adobe maintained "anti-poaching" agreements, basically blackballing employees so that, if you left Apple, you couldn't get hired at Google, Intel, or Adobe. The huge class action civil lawsuit ended in a $415 million settlement, in which they didn't admit wrongdoing.

Make no mistake. If you fark up royally in the tech industry, the stench lingers like a dead woodchuck under the porch, and everyone gets a whiff. Even for schmucks like myself, word gets around and you have to keep it in mind.

I think they can also verify whether or not he is eligible for re-hire.  But luckily for the star of our article, none of that matters since any potential employer who takes the time to google this guy will find out everything they need to know.  Burning bridges on the way out is one thing, but burning bridges, recording it, and posting it online is a special kind of stupid.

Homer burns the bridge at the nuclear plant, literally!
