Humorous Times People and Things Were Singled Out Unfairly

With all the misfortune life likes to throw at people, there are moments when life has a way of singling certain people and things out in a way that's so unfair, it just becomes funny. To think that the universe has an agenda against one particular person or thing may be severe, but sometimes it sure seems like it.

Coworker Disregards IT Guy's Advice, Fiery Mess Ensues

Some people are more stubborn than others, and sometimes that frustrating stubborn stance goes hand in hand with acts of stupefying, blind ignorance. Take this IT dude's coworker who decided to have nothing short of a hysterical meltdown over what she viewed as a faulty printer. Well, one thing leads to another and before you know it, she's created a fire in the office. To make matters more dramatic, she decided to put the fiery papers on the counter instead of into the sink. It sounds like logic was a lacking quality from the beginning in this tale of tech support.

Dude's Nephew Starts A Housefire for TikTok, Wants Whole Family Out

On the one hand, it's nice to live in your own peaceful home without the risk of further fires. On the other hand, how much sympathy is the right amount to extend in order to keep your extended family off the streets? It's a bit of a rough one. Those kooky kids learn all sorts on the Tik Toks, like this dad who found out his daughter who filed her teeth for TikTok.

Design Failures That Could Use Some Rethinking

Everyone wants to leave work early, but sometimes it takes a few design fails to get there. Ill conceived products, idiotic font choices, and some less-than-mastery of photoshop get people into some weird situations. Adding to that, the pesky thing with reality is that sometimes things don't fit where you want them to. Enough "not my job" moments of failure have proven that.

Total Strangers People Will Never Forget

It's weird that we're surrounded by people all the time, but it's against social convention to have a meaningful relationship with any of them. As rare as it is, people will take time out of their lives to make more of an impact than being just a face in the crowd. Some of these interactions are strange encounters, others are wholesome, but the one thing they all are is memorable.

Funny, Irreverent, And Bizarre Tinder Gems

We can always count on Tinder to deliver a steady, relentless series of cheesy, irreverant, and just plain old bizarre pickup lines. Every now and again it seems like a meaningful connection is found in this world with its battlefield of red flags. But otherwise you can pretty much just expect Tinder users to keep things as far away from the realm of being serious as possible. Sometimes though, that can actually work out. 

A collection of funny and weird moments from various Tinder users. | MATCHED WITH BILLY ON 23/12/2020. Alex is boys name Billy is goats name

Cringeworthy and Inadvisable Construction Maneuvers

There are some things, like bulging water damage that just hurt to see. There are other unsafe maneuvers that we have more control over, like jacking up a car with another car, that also hurt to see. It's a mess of improper execution and incompetent construction out there, as creative or convenient as it may seem at the time

Someone on AskReddit got a gnarly thread going about the most ruthless rejections that people have ever endured. Some of these are just plain old heartless.

Anyone who has ever worked a customer service gig has likely encountered that one customer who just refuses to be a reasonable human being. When you encounter such an emboldened individual it's really up to you to give them the reality check they're not asking for, for free. This crew certainly delivered.

Honestly, we're just glad that the doggo homie is alright. This hilarious story centers on a dog who loyally, foolishly decided to mimic their owner who had injured his leg. Suffice to say, some massive and completely unnecessary vet fees ended up being the result.

Animated music videos have the nasty habit of not being completely true to how the real-life instruments are actually being played. Here we have an example of how Gorillaz "Clint Eastwood" would actually sound. No one is saying that every cartoon must be accurate now or else it sucks, but it's something to think about.

So many of us have unfortunately been caught up in a ridiculously competitive video game with a bud who just proceeds to dissolve into a complete rage puddle. The Madden games are especially notorious for exorcising people's most irrational inner demons. This Madden pro certainly had a tough day of it.

Voracious Trees That Engulfed Things

Everyone things that trees are peaceful, but in reality they're the only thing out there willing to eat anything. No predator out there would think to eat a motorcycle. Sure, you have to lean that puppy up against a tree and wait a few years, but by gum after a decade or so those famished trees will engulf that sucker. It should be known that trees are low key monsters.

Guy Buys Suit of Armor, Ends Up Roleplaying as Manager

If only there could always be a threatening guy in a suit of armor for every single negative customer encounter. It's probably hard not to listen to anyone standing 6 foot 5 in a suit of armor. Sometimes the ol' manager switcheroo works out, like this entitled customer who came in after close and got kicked out by the "manager." It must feel pretty good to be someone's literal knight in shining armor.
