Tall People Problems From The World's Giants

Being tall ain't all that it's made out to be. In fact, there's a whole lot of the stuff that we use in our everyday lives (cars, toilet seats, doorways) that is absolutely not tailored to account for abnormally tall individuals. On top of that, if you're extra tall you're bound to run into all the spiderwebs that other people never come close to touching themselves.

Micromanaging Owner Cuts Chef's Pay, Backfires In Righteous Fashion

There's nothing we love more to see than a micromanaging owner get greedy and end up having it backfire in glorious fashion. This owner was trying to keep his fragile ego afloat while cutting his hard working kitchen staff's rightful pay, and ended up ultimately spending the same amount of money that he would've (if not more) if he'd just left things alone.

Companies "Improved" Products That Are Objectively Worse

Because we're human beings, we're entitled to our hyper judgmental rejection of anything new and "improved." Sometimes companies work hard to make their beloved products legitimately cheaper and inferior, especially in the case of Cadbury Eggs. Those used to be great. Now everything is too marked up for its own good. Sometimes things just change with the times, like cars not having CD players anymore, which is inarguably worse. Who the hell wants to buy a digital copy of Hybrid Theory when there's a perfectly good physical copy of it somewhere around here.

Half Brothers Get Greedy, Threaten To Sue, Costs Them 158K

What we have here is a tale as old as time itself. Some half brothers get obnoxiously greedy, fly too close to the sun, and pretty much melt their wings off to the tune of $158K. If they'd have simply been reasonable human beings and offered some sliver of understanding in regards to the circumstances of the inheritance that was so graciously left behind, they might've actually gotten their share of the money. But alas, they took the different, ill advised route.

The poor hawk got stuck on this dude's porch, and after he wasn't able to shoo it away, he naturally just decided to pick up the beast with his bare hands. Can't say that this would be the typical approach to such a life development, but here we are.

Entitled Folks With Their Bold Demands

It's a nightmare to deal with the type of person who thinks their rightful place is the front of the line. Entitled people with their outlandish demands are an incredible thing to witness. Their lack of self-reflection and complete confidence is truly a modern marvel. You'd hope entitled people with their audacious demands would eventually get the picture, but it's doubtful.
