25 Old People On Social Media Who Tried Their Best

Social media has a steep learning curve for the old. It's a lot of folks using the laughing emoji when sharing sad news, accidentally posting their sordid google searches as their statuses, printing out memes, believing even the most absurd satirical new articles, and speaking in all caps. But we gotta cut them some slack, cause these old people are trying their best on social media.

It almost feels like this could be some kind of dub-over situation, or tricky editing, until you hear the dude at the end clarify that he was in fact hilariously off the mark with his assumption that the creature on the screen was a moth and not a horse.

Some people have an uncanny knack for getting wildly impatient and plain old belligerent in the drive-thru. It's as if they get caught up in the blinding desire of needing to be an impossible million places at once, and this gives way to nasty behavior. Well, one of the drivers caught up in this rude drive-thru debacle decided to play a song to show how they felt about all the rudeness. I just hope the dude in the red truck was able to hear their special song. Shoutout to @chasityrodriguez93 for the comedy gold.

You've got to appreciate how they made sure to give her some time to collect her breath after completing the free dive, and before celebrating. Just consider how many breaths you might've clocked while she was doing her whole dive sequence.

The sling shot ride itself already looks thrilling enough as it is without a seagull dropping in to say what's up to your face. Clearly, this poor girl was rattled to her core. We're just glad that everyone appears to have exited the chaotic collision of forces without being injured.

Aunt Dismisses Jellyfish Museum's Warnings, Gets Stung, Wants To Sue, Gets Called Karen

It really sounds like the jellyfish museum was trying to help this woman out, but for whatever reason she decided to adopt quite the stubborn rule-breaking attitude. Naturally, this attitude results in her acquiring the very painful jellyfish sting that she was warned about. And then she proceeds to want to sue the museum. This call for a suing gave way to her being labelled a Karen. So, the question here is whether or not the person who called the Aunt a "Karen" was in the wrong. Folks in the comments section seem to be in agreement that this wasn't so out of line. Of course, nobody likes being labelled a Karen. The thing about it is, when you live down to the stereotype, being labelled a Karen shouldn't be such a wildly unexpected turn of events.

Inventions That Are Hardly Ever Used For Their Intended Purpose

One of the things that makes human beings unique is our ingenuity. For example, the famous cookie tin/sewing kit. A variety of medications, toys and uh, personal products are inventions that are now used for something other than their intended purpose. That doesn't make them any less useful. It means people are good at adapting. People are also pretty dumb, which is why we have so many brilliant ideas that were stupid upon review.

Citizens Of The World Bond Over Their Potholes On Twitter

As citizens of the world, we may not all speak the same language or have exactly the same values. But one thing we can all agree on is that we all resent the state of our infrastructure. After NoContextBrits insinuated that they had singularly bad roads, everyone chimed in in a display of funny yet extremely damning examples of the world's collective road quality. Potholes, sinkholes, and tomato-infested roads abound. For some driving themed insanity, here are some incompetent drivers who should be banned from the road.

Entitled People With Their Bold Behavior and Audacious Demands

What would life be without a neighbor threatening to trap your cat because it sits on her car at night? Why should we all be free to go about our days without hearing from the entitled people and total Karens who are ready to call the cops because they didn't get a free cookie with their purchase? Variety is the spice of life, but entitled people are the metal shavings one finds in their BLT.

Ex Boyfriend Won't Return Woman's Stuff, Woman Wants To Sell His Stuff

Controlling behavior is gross. Everyone's just out there trying to lead their lives without having to deal with the terrible manipulative tactics that some of the world's more toxic individuals insist on carrying out. It sounds like this guy chose to go down the post-breakup route where he was trying to keep the flames of a relationship that had flickered out alive, by keeping the phone line open for nasty arguments. Yikes, man. With all of that context being covered, it's no big surprise that this woman and her friends found themselves thinking that selling the guy's stuff was the move after the way he chose to handle things. Especially because he got rid of her stuff. If anything, seems like she dodged a real bullet. 

A woman's ex won't return her stuff so she wants to go ahead and return the engagement ring.

They say not to approach seals at the beach, but when one comes up and wants to hang out, there's not a lot you can do to keep it away. This guy has somehow acquired the mystical animal magnetism of a Disney Princess, and we're jealous. That or he smells like food.

Richard Feynman is clearly not the guy to ask about why magnets are attracted to one another. That is, unless you want to sit back and watch him serve up a seven-course feast of undercooked word bits about everything except for why magnets are attracted to each other/repel.

We've never been too old for jump scares, and we won't be too old for them until our very last one that puts us in the ground. And we're not too afraid to admit that we weren't expecting the outcome. No one likes getting got by a rat.

The folks that work the customer service facing jobs in the travel industry have to deal with their fair share of aggressively inconsiderate, entitled individuals. Some people completely lose their cool when it comes time to travel. They'll proceed to make everyone's day/night/midnight of traveling that much more harrowing through their own belligerence. This guy clearly wasn't about to put up with any of Karen's nonsense.
