Teacher Assumes TV Trolley Doesn't Need To Be Plugged In, Learns Otherwise

Just because someone's a teacher doesn't mean that they haven't fallen through the cracks, and missed the boat on something that's so obvious it's pretty much in the realm of common sense. With that being said, it sounds like this teacher was just having one of those days. Tech support has to weather the storms of ignorance enough as it already is. The least the rest of us can do is to show them the respect and patience they deserve. Glad that everything was able to be resolved in this tale though.

Freaky Close Call Decisions that Saved People's Lives

The universe is shifty and unpredictable, and it's impossible to know when an unforeseen danger will be thrown right at you. But sometimes our spidey senses light up, allowing us to make either fast or seemingly precognitive decisions that help us dodge massive bullets. Sometimes a crazy close call is up to chance, but other times people feel a gut instinct keeping them safe.

Woman Can't Stand Roommates, Breaks Lease, Roommates Flip Out

If you're not prioritizing your own needs, then people are bound to take advantage of that and walk all over you. When it comes to maintaining the balance in the fragile ecosystem that can be an apartment/house with younger roomies, it can end up being a bit of a struggle. Dramas can break out at a moment's notice, and if people aren't committed to playing nice with one another, you can find yourself in some real hot water. In terms of the scenario we have here, it seems like the woman's decision to move on out of the place was totally warranted.

Company Takes Employee For Granted, Malicious Compliance Ensues

Unfortunately, this isn't the first time that we've encountered a tale involving a company failing to recognize one of their employees for what they're worth, and we highly doubt it'll be the last time. Fortunately though, this little emotional rollercoaster has a happy ending. Those cheap payroll departments can get to be quite spendy. 

Company takes their employee for granted, so the employee shows their worth.

People Describe Nicest Celebrities They Met

Nothing can quite melt a fan's heart like meeting a celebrity that they absolutely idolize, and then not having the experience dampened by the obnoxious weight of a nasty ego. Celebrities are bestowed with quite a bit of power when it comes to making someone's day, or even giving them a cherished memory to last a whole lifetime.

RPG Creator Points Out The Geographical Absurdity of New Orleans

Co-Creator of Pathfinder @Jameslsutter has enough experience in fantasy cartography to know when a place is supposed to look believable or not. His diagnosis is that Louisiana has done a great job of convincing him that New Orleans exists when in fact it's laid out like a real not my job, "4:30 on a Friday" kind of map-making project. For fans of fantasy, here's a Tumblr thread on the theory surrounding Dwarves' super intelligent beards.

Absurd Times People and Things Were Singled Out

We live in an unfair world, but one of the great levelers is the belief that at some point in time, everyone is going to have a bad day. It's a lot harder to believe that when people and things get singled out so unfairlythat reality becomes absurd. It seems like sometimes people and things get singled outto the point that it seems comically impossible for them to catch a break.

Tumblr Thread: Being a Purveyor of Fine Clown Meats

In most cases, someone offering to tell you about a dream they had is the most boring and stupid waste of 5 minutes you can engage in.

It's got action, crime, drama, science and most importantly a whole lotta clown meat. Here are some more funny, random and shiny tumblr gems.

Creepy Times People's Kids Mentioned "Past Lives"

Kids are weird and they lie a lot, but there's a really strange tendency for three and four-year-olds to mention "back when I flew helicopters in 'nam" or "my previous mother wasn't as nice as you." Is it a weird combination of dreams they had, the power of suggestion, and the fact that kids sometimes don't know what they're saying? Almost certainly. Is it also extremely creepy when a very small child insists that they were a crooked cop who was buried in an unmarked grave? Very much so, yeah. Here's a twitter thread of people's kids saying similarly creepy stuff.

Absolute Weirdest Things That Happened To People

Existence is weird. We take it for granted. It's as if we're conditioned from a young age to overlook the more notably mysterious matters of this thing we call life. Some moments are weirder than others. Like, you feel like you witnessed a literal video game glitch, but it's your life. Sometimes, you encounter an experience that defies the very nature of the reality that you occupy. From there, hopefully you can tell some willing listening ears. Otherwise, you can always share your surreal encounter on a thread like the one we have here.

Company Won't Accept Mortgage Payments, Tells Customer They've Defaulted

There's a type of business that makes itself deliberately hard to navigate just so they can charge weird fees. Some companies will even hide or delay just how much interest they've charged just to bully customers into paying for late fees they didn't even know existed. Navigating the corporate landscape as one person can be an absolute nightmare, but after dealing with the absurd process of paying their own mortgage, this person realized they didn't have to put up with the nonsense. For another tale of financial absurdity, here's a guy who got hounded for a trivial debt and ended up mailing them a dime.
