'He put the 3 minute rice in the pan and left [for] 1 hour': Entitled man-child nearly burns down the college dorm kitchen, learns the hard way how to cook

College kids learn life lessons the hard way. They learn that the metro stops running at a certain point of the night and that keeping up with your laundry is a full time job, but the hardest lessons college kids are forced to learn are in the kitchen.

'Companies pay $50,000+ [...] for a "best place to work" advertisement package:' 20+ company secrets from people who no longer work there

There are many ways to get even with your boss after you were unjustly fired, but revealing company secrets has got to be the most high-stakes option. Now, as someone who does not have the guts to pull this kind of petty revenge off, I have to step back and marvel at some of these folks for speaking their truth. That being said, they did do it behind the anonymous safety net of this r/AskReddit thread, but still, I guess we should give credit where credit is due. As for my company secrets, that…

'I cant take notes on my computer? Fine, I’ll use a typewriter': Teacher enforces strict no laptop policy, student maliciously complies

'I can't take notes on my computer? Fine, I’ll use a typewriter': Teacher enforces strict no laptop policy, student maliciously complies

Teachers better be careful when enforcing silly rules. As the son of a former teacher, I am sympathetic to the fear that students will just be playing games if laptops are allowed in class. That being said, wouldn't that be their loss when it's time to test them? In my experience, people will always find an excuse to zone out and not pay attention. So even if laptops are forbidden in the classroom, they will always find a way. Now, in defense of students, it is simply far easier to keep up with…

'It took them a full MONTH to catch onto us': Students find loophole in lateness policy and show up three hours late with minimal punishment

Being late occasionally is an inevitable part of life; that being said, testing your school's lateness policy can be a tricky tightrope walk. On the one hand, school administrators who are obsessed with enforcing lateness policies should have far more important things to worry about. On the other hand, students should have far more to be concerned with than finding loopholes so they can miss three hours of class each day.

'You just stopped in the middle of the road!': Delivery driver honks at Karen and Kevin, they try to intimidate him, bystander intervenes

This older couple could not handle being called out for not driving properly. By not driving properly, we mean simply stopping in the middle of the street, an act that would make anyone honk at you. However, this delivery driver didn't realize when he honked that he would end up being confronted and intimidated by an older Karen and Kevin couple who refused to acknowledge that they were the problem. Despite their frustration at being captured on camera, the New Jersey delivery driver filmed eve…

'Throwing a baby shower for themselves': 25+ Socially unacceptable things people do all the time

Whether it's taking up two parking spots with one car or interrupting conversations incessantly, there are both written and unwritten rules about how people should behave in public. But of course, not everyone follows said rules. In fact, the audacious folks among us actively do the socially unacceptable thing in public, sometimes because these rules are ludicrous and sometimes because they have no level of self-awareness. Before we reveal the various “uncool” things people do in public all the…

Top Mildly Infuriating Moments of the Week (October 26, 2023)

'My school is fining students that take too long in the bathroom': Top Mildly Infuriating Moments of the Week (October 26, 2023)

At the very least, life's many inconveniences can provide fodder for second-hand entertainment. Obviously, when you are being confronted with something mildly infuriating, as many folks expressed via this Reddit thread , you don't feel entertained in the moment. You probably feel enraged, cheated, and ready to spontaneously combust. However, after taking a moment to breathe, you just might realize that the best thing you can do in this situation is to life at the whole thing. Otherwise, it migh…

'You see this scale? You are here at 99%': 20+ memorable comments from therapists that range from wholesome to petty

Some therapists can be gentle, others can be savage, and most can be both within the same session. I would be lying if I told you I never had a bizarre exchange with my therapist. Once upon a time, I made a former therapist of mine cry totally by accident when I was having a fairly nonchalant conversation about family dynamics during the Holidays. Either I have zero self-awareness to realize what I shared was intense or something I said resonated a bit too much with him. Oh well, another therap…

'THIS IS A HANDWASHING SINK [...] NO WASHING YOUR FEET': 30+ funny and cringe signs

'This is a handwashing sink [...] no washing your feet': 30+ amusing and cringe signs

You might do a double-take and think you're misreading these signs. Fortunately, you're not crazy. These are actual signs from billboards, retail stores, and public bathrooms galore. Some of the requests being made are so ridiculous that you begin to question everyone else's sanity. For instance, do people really wash their feet in the sink of a public bathroom? Do people really tweet about a fire in the building before evacuating? Do the marketing teams of these major chains really not catch g…

'My sister got a Blu-Ray player and I got an HDMI cable': 25+ cringe gifts that totally missed the mark

Everyone has opened a present at some point in their lifetime that made them wonder what the heck this person was thinking. When I was in Middle School, my Mom got me a dictionary for my birthday. The following year, I received a pencil holder. Clearly, there was a not-so-subtle message here, and that was to study more. I know I'm not the only one who has had a close family member completely mess up when it comes to gift-giving. A friend of mine is known for being obsessed with tea. Her kitchen…

'If someone tells you they had 10 crazy roommates [...] they are the crazy roommate': 30+ red flags to watch out for when choosing who to live with

Finding the right roommate is just like finding the right apartment: sure, desperate times call for desperate measures, but you cannot compromise too much, or else you'll face the consequences. At the end of the day, a bad roommate can ruin a great apartment, whereas a great roommate can at the very least improve the experience of living in a bad apartment. At least the two of you are getting along as you suffer through it! If the two of you do not get along, it doesn't matter if you have a was…

'Someone made brownies with ground meat': 20+ worst dishes people brought to a potluck

Potlucks are a gamble because, let's be honest, you are subjected to other people's food. Sure, that means it's likely free food, but at what cost? These folks shared the worst dishes that people brought to a potluck via this r/AskReddit thread, and let's just say that now I have zero desire to attend a potluck ever again. From brownies with ground meat in them to casseroles with a side of roaches, these Redditors were subjected to the absolute lowest of humanity when really, everyone could hav…

'I made a duct tape and chainmail frisbee': 30 DIY projects that should've never been constructed

DIY is a fun hobby … some crafters just take it way too far. Upcycling and downcycling have been trendy past times in recent years. Upcycling refers to recycling something into an item that's more valuable than before, like turning a bunch of plastic bottles into a fancy chair. Then there's downcycling, which is what these crafty people below are doing. That's when you take an item and recycle into something less valuable, like the dad who tried to make a lamp classier, using only spray paint a…

The teenager tried to pass off a ridiculous-looking homemade device as a “virtual reality” gadget.

'Your parents are literally the worst part of my job': 20+ teachers share the one thing they wish they could tell their students

Teaching takes more self-restraint than most jobs. As a former tutor of high school kids and the child of a teacher, I can attest to the fact that there are a million thoughts your teachers have about you and your classmates, and it takes absolutely every bit of their brain power to stop themselves from saying the things that they probably shouldn't. Some of these thoughts include hot takes about students with bad body odor, students who have obvious crushes on their other classmates, and stude…

'Do you even see yourself?': Guy goes on first date with a non-stop texter, he stands her up mid-date, she barely notices

We know that the dating scene these days can feel like an endless pattern of failed first dates, but you have to make the slightest bit of effort at the very least. Otherwise, you are simply in no position to complain about your life as a single person. This Redditor tried his best on a first date with a woman who would not stop texting during their meal. It was just constant. Every time the phone buzzed, she just had to pick it up and text (probably with her sound on) instead of answering simp…
