New Mom Asks Husband To Stop Social Media Posting About Exhaustion

Bring a new little human being into this world is easily one of the most profound and difficult experiences that someone can experience in their lives. With the experience of raising a baby comes regular, delirious phases of pure sleep deprivation, and overwhelming exhaustion. Of course, all the struggles and pain can be offset by those humbling moments of beauty that a parent can witness as they watch their baby familiarize itself with this strange world. But, with all that being said, the parenting process can get to some folks more than others. And some people like to vent on places like social media to destress themselves. It sounds like this dad's decision to do that social media venting wasn't exactly met with approval.

People's Most Wildly Unexpected Moments

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about people's craziest "you don't see that every day" moments. Life has a funny way of surprising us just when we're settling into our respective routines. As you get older and grow more accustomed to being endlessly surprised by whatever life decides to throw your way on a given day, you pretty much can just settle on into a philosophy of expecting the unexpected. 

People describe their most wildly unexpected moments throughout life.

Moments That Show How Dumb and Strange Kids Are

It's no question that kids are stupid and weird. They're horrible liars, they don't know how to read, they lack basic coordination skills and a lot of them look like they've never worked a day in their life. From sharpie-ing the dog to attempting to eat wax fruit, there's more than enough proof that kids are stupid and weird.

In the Season 2 Finale of Your Brain On Cracked, "Doctor" Jordan Breeding celebrates the show's one year anniversary as well as mourns Caleb's death/move to Austin, Texas. He also uses the opportunity to discuss how messed up coming of age movie tropes are in films like Power Rangers, Animorphs, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Transformers, and X-Men and maybe even grows up a bit himself.

Just entertain the very likely possibility that the monstrous fart to end all farts was intended to be a silent one. And imagine the crippling panic, the dizzying embarrassment that must've ensued. Or, you could always just own it.

A massive ice drift on the Amur River in Eastern Russia climbed up the banks of the town of Khabarovsk, smashing a metal barricade. While the drift didn't hurt anyone, it did succeed in looking like an angry ancient river god trying to invade dry land. It's like a slow motion tsunami.

Biker Customer Demands Cup Of Cream and Sugar, Ends Up Apologizing

Sometimes customers are so high on their own sense of confident entitlement that they forget an employee might actually be trying to help them out. What does it say when a road-weary biker is more willing to admit their ordering mistakes than this Karen who was furious after getting the cake she wanted.

Restaurant Owner Calls Out Woman's Dishonest Reviews

People who go out of their way to try and diminish an upstanding restaurant's completely well earned, good reputation are really swinging low. These times more than ever have put restaurants through the ringer. To take the extra step toward making it that much harder for them to get business because you have some kind of maniacal agenda to inflate your sense of worth through taking away someone else's through dishonesty is just vile. We're glad that this restaurant owner put "Bianca" in her place.

Guy Stands Up to Jerk Boss Who Makes Him do Two Jobs

People deal with their fair share of ignorant bosses, so it's incredibly satisfying to see an employee who's in the right win something, like this overworked employee who revolted by doing his exact job description. And to prove that your boss is being a complete hypocrite is icing on the cake.

Good Stuff That Got Ruined By Money and Popularity

The world often finds itself at a loss for good cheap stuff. After cheap things become popular, the powers that be start to realize the premium people will pay for those things that are popular, even if the cost isn't reflected accurately. There was a time when chicken wings were cheap. Now people wear good work pants as if they were a luxury brand. It could also be a mix of inflation and nostalgia, but by god there's tons of stuff that's more expensive but also somehow worse. Here's some of the most absurdly overpriced stuff people have seen.

Wife Says Family's Broke, Husband Reminds Her They're Millionaires

Honestly, it's probably best to do what you can to steer clear of those revealing talks about the state of your personal finances around the dinner table. Especially whenever there might be some alcohol involved. There are just certain subjects that have a tendency to set people on edge. In this scenario, we have a couple who ends up being at odds over how they present the state of their financials to the rest of the world. The wife wants to paint a BS picture of them being broke, while the husband is more concerned with people knowing that they're in fact millionaires. Maybe just take a break from sharing all that information, and focus on something else. 

Wife keeps saying that the family is broke, and then the husband reminds her that they're millionaires.

Ironic, Stupid and Wonderful Shirts

Are ridiculous and stupid t shirts still a thing? There's definitely been a strong surge of extremely aggressive and arbitrary tough guy shirts , but hopefully we haven't outlived the era of funny t shirts, if not only because at this point in time they're kinda folksy. In any town in America there will always be a guy at the store buying milk wearing a shirt demanding that you smell his finger, preferably in comic sans, and there just seems something so right about it.

funny, dumb t shirts
