A user with a throwaway username (as is common to do on the site) posted to /r/AITA, which is a section to ask if "Am I the Asshole" in a situation. In this particular case, a person describes two cats at their workplace named Jorts and Jean. Jorts seems to be a bit silly but a co-worker feels she needs to almost take over the care of Jorts.
What ensues is a well-written and quite funny story. Without spoiling anything, here's an excerpt:
Jean is very nice to poor orange Jorts, and she is kept busy letting him out of rooms he has trapped himself in, so this seems easy to resolve. I put down a door stop.Jorts Reddit Post
Pam then said I was depriving Jorts of the “chance to learn” and kept removing the doorstop. She set up a series of special learning activities for Jorts, and tried to put these tasks on the whiteboard of daily team tasks (I erased them).
The story reads like a work of fiction but there are too many good bits that make it real. Even better, a few days later the person posted an update that is even funnier than the initial post.
