Anyone who has ever worked a customer service gig knows that the job comes with its unfortunate boatload of experiences that involve dealing with wildly entitled individuals. It's really on all of us to do the very best that we can to act like decent human beings, and just try to make people's daily lives a little bit better.
The internet loves toxicity and drama. Accidentally stumbling upon some of the angrier corners of Twitter or Facebook could lead one to believe that boomers are waging waragainst millennials. In reality, the world is full of empathetic people of all ages and backgrounds. Most people wouldn't say 99% of the mean crap they say online to actual, IRL human beings.
We've put together a bunch of wholesome boomer content to remind ourselves that the world ain't so bad sometimes and in fact, life is full of funny and heartwarming little moments like these.
You'll read these complaints and think to yourself, "can people really be that dumb?" Unfortunately, If you've ever worked in hospitality you'd know that, yes, these are entirely plausible.
"No-one told us there would be fish in the water. The children were scared." Really? No one told you that their would be fish living in their natural habitat -- the water? Really?
It's another episode in the wide world of mailbox drama. The rule was that mailboxes had to be 6 feet from the street, but no one specified in which direction. There's probably no way anyone could get away with this now, but that's what the past is for. What can we say except loopholes are great. Here's a dad's masterfully designed Basketball Loophole and these other loopholes people exploited for years.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is one of the most popular franchises in the world...ever. The action-packed superhero movies draw huge crowds with their explosive fight scenes and impressive CGI. They're thrilling to watch. After all, who doesn't love to see the good guys fighting the good fight? But. What if the Avengers were real? What if their arguably destructive battles involved your car - or the crashing of a train with one of your loved ones on it? While some may argue that Amazon's The Boys kind of answers that question, we're more satisfied by the humor and imagination spawned by a tweet from @alpineswinter.
i feel like if the avengers were real we'd all really really hate them— caleb CAP 4 (@alpineswinter) April 26, 2021
The tweet, which went viral, inspired a hilarious thread in which Twitter users got real about how shitty it would be if life involved a bunch of fancy ass superheroes fighting villains at the expense of our livelihood. We've put some of the highlights in this gallery, but there's a lot more fun where they came from.
Sitting in an office with your coworkers for the best part of eight hours a day means you're bound to become comfortable with each other. And when you're spending that much time with the same people day in and day out, it's easy to let your guard down and say some pretty stupid things. Whether it's gossip over lunch or small talk at the water cooler, workplace conversations can often be the furthest thing from intelligence.
Here are 20 tweets showing some of the dumbest and funniest conversation snippets people have overheard their coworkers say. We don't know about you, but they definitely make us feel a little better about ourselves – and our coworkers.
Hey homies! Let's get the day going with some lil froggo booties. "Although you may have had a detailed look at frog anatomy in high school, you may not have paid much attention to the frog's butt. That's probably because you dissected a Leopard Frog which does not have buttcheeks like the photo you saw on Social Media. So, do frogs really have 'Frog butts'?"
"As a general rule, frogs do not have well-defined human-like buttcheeks since frogs do not sit on their rear ends at a 90° angle as humans do. Frogs generally have a pointed or rounded vent (or butt). However, some frogs do have what look like human-like buttcheeks." Via toadsnfrogs.com What the heck! Who knew froggo booties could be this interesting!
Can it even be called a "living" room if there's no toilet in there? "Not my job" moments surround us, thanks to our tendency to not want to do our jobs correctly. Sure, that means a lot of way-too-low ceiling fans and stop signs that say "go" but do you think you could do better? Well you probably could. Thanks to these moments of professional inadequacy we can all feel like we'd do a better job.
Before the advent of the Internet, gatekeeping (the activity of controlling, and usually limiting, general access to something) felt pretty rare. Unless you went to high school with extremely annoying people, you could wear a band t-shirt without being quizzed on the artist's catalogue and obscure trivia. Activities such as playing video games, or even shaking hands were free for everyone to enjoy without issue. Unless, you know, your handshakes are like wet fish.
Now that anyone and everyone is able to spout their toxic takes on social media, it's become pretty normal for gatekeepers to try to alienate people who really just want to enjoy things. We're not sure if these people just have fragile egos or are just nasty. Either way, they should probably seek help. It can't be healthy for their blood pressure to get so upset about what other people are doing.
You want to know what REAL FRIENDSHIP looks like? Read this. It's time we learn that some of the bullsh*t we see on social media doesn't represent the meaningful relationships we need in our lives.
If you have a friend like this, let them know how much you appreciate them.
So, listen. We love our siblings. Yes, we do. But, there are some moments in everyone's lives when we kinda wanna throw something at them. That's fine. It's part of siblinghood. And apparently, doggos feel the same way. Hey, don't judge. Sometimes, even animals ruin family photos on purpose, and it just annoys everyone.
Doggos can feel pretty heckin' done with their siblings too - especially when it's a new sibling that has just joined the household. They're patient, yeah, and doggos are indeed the best boys and girls no matter what. It's just that it takes some time to get used to this wiggling and zooming ball of energy that doesn't calm down until it passes out. But hey, at least the pictures are funny.
