Choosing Beggar Asks For Computer Help, Assumes Stranger Will Pay For It

At first, you might be thrown off, cause it almost seems like they're not about to be an entitled, choosing beggar. In short time though, things escalate, and suddenly we have a choosing beggar showing their true face. They basically assumed that the very stranger helping them with computer tips, would also pay for the parts they recommended for purchase. Nope, that's not how it works.

Polite-ish Ways To Tell Someone To Shut Up

Some of us are talkers, and hopefully you know who you are. There comes a time in every conversation's life when it's time for that conversation to end. Maybe it's when the one person starts talking about their favorite cat names. It could be when you find yourself saying "wow, that's crazy" for the fifth time. But being basically polite people, it helps to have strategies that are better than shouting "I hate you I hate you I hate you." Our politeness gets us into some weird situations, like these worst things people ate out of politeness.

Even a little bit of homework before the moment of the job interview arrives can benefit you immensely.

Dude Shows Up At Wrong House for Party, Looks Like Weirdo

It's pretty much every grown man's worst fear to look like an absolute creep. Like, in the top ten "things guys shouldn't shouldn't do" at least numbers 4 through 8 are some variation of "make it seem like you're friends with stranger's kids." It goes without saying why that precedent is in place, but there are good reasons for it. This guy had the less than comfortable experience of accidentally talking his way into a random girl's house. Interesting choice from the mom to just let the whole situation play out just to watch him suffer, but alright. Small errors can snowball out of control, like this guy who accidentally ate 420 dollars worth of beef.
