Clueless People Who Missed The Joke By Miles

With every great joke uttered, there's always someone out there with the potential to miss that joke by miles. Not only that, but they'll have the sheer audacity to treat the joke teller like they're the moron. It's obliviousness like that that feels like a kick in the teeth to humanity in general. Is there helping bozos who didn't get the joke? Maybe, but only if they want to be helped.

AskReddit Thread: Dumbest Lies People Actually Pulled Off

There's something hardwired into us as human beings, where we're terribly susceptible to willing ourselves into believing completely blatant lies that people are telling right to our faces. Maybe it's some sort of conflict avoidance. Maybe it's that romantic, idealistic urge to try to see the best in someone. With all of that being said, it's nothing short of a stupefying wonder that these people were able to get away with the dumb lies that they were.

Scams That Have Been Normalized By Society

We are at heart, frugal, sometimes to the point of staggering paranoia. We're the kind of people who are inclined to look at an overpriced jar of pickles and say to ourselves "Big Pickle must be stopped." Just because a business, practice or concept has been operating for decades doesn't mean that it's not just a scam that people overlook. Stupid pickles are just vinegar and cucumbers anyway.

On the flipside, here are some things people think are scams but aren't really.

1-Year-Old Daughter Steals Sweet, Mom Tells Store, Store Still Bans Mom

How cold hearted can you be? The mom in this scenario literally goes out of her way to tell the store what her 1-year-old (1 YEARS OLD) daughter did when it came to lifting a sweets item. And then the store still has the heartless audacity to tell the mom that she's banned. Pretty unreal.

Dad Charges Ex $100 To Babysit On Custody Day

At first glance, you'd probably go ahead and assume that the dad was very much so in the wrong, but upon closer inspection it becomes glaringly evident that there's a whole lot more dysfunctional nonsense afoot within the relationship dynamic. Probably best to just hard reject the next time around.

School Memes For The Mostly Educated

Sure, there are history memes for the already learned and work memes for those of us who made it out, but there remains a festering pile of memories in everyone regarding their time in school.

New Roommate Rents Two Rooms, Only Expects To Pay For One Room

Well oh well, this new roommate is coming in hot on the scene with all kinds of red flag behavior. Their reasoning for why they shouldn't be on the hook for paying for the 2/3 rooms that they're occupying is total nonsense. Sounds like the best move here could be to backtrack on this particular new roommate, and get someone new in there. For some more roommate drama check out this dude who reached his breaking point with some roommates over rent division
