People's Weirdest Experiences On Public Transit

Unfortunately, there's no getting around the fact that public transportation invites all kinds of chaotic behavior from humans. It's as if some people seemingly leave their moral compasses at home, and succumb to not acting like decent individuals right upon entering a bus or even worse, the subway. Oh boy, the subway. Talk about a petri dish of vile and generally unacceptable behavior.

New Employee Uses Apple Computer As Door Jam, Computer Turns Into Applesauce

Starting up with a new job is a disorienting experience. It's a humbling time that's dominated by the overriding reality of regularly recognizing that you don't just yet know what you're doing. Some people are better at navigating that time of transition than others. One thing that can certainly make the whole process of starting up with a new job that much harder is if you find yourself having to deal with an Apple computer that's been given to you by your employer, but said Apple computer was converted into applesauce. For another glorious TIFU tale check out this story about a woman who nearly pepper sprayed a man over a twin misunderstanding.

Mayor Destroys Only Green-Space Park, Town Members Abandon Town

Alright, there were doubts expressed in the comments section over whether or not this is a mere work of fiction. At the same time some folks stepped forward to provide pretty compelling points that this very well could've been a thing back in the day. Even if it's some creative writing that we have going on here, it's a pretty entertaining series of events. Talk about a collective power move. Basically, don't mess with people's parks, man. Especially if you're the mayor of a very small town, and run the risk of having that very small town's population just dip out.

Babysitter Makes Parents Pay For Items Damaged By Unsupervised Kid, Asks If She's In The Wrong

Honestly, it sounds like the parents are the ones in this unfortunate scenario who really engineered the ultimate unwanted outcome. They knew when the babysitter was going to have to dip, and ultimately didn't make good on the agreed upon time. From there, it's pretty natural for the young ones in this world to get all kinds of mischievous and stir up trouble. It seems like most folks in the comments section were in agreement that this one doesn't fall on the babysitter.

Giveaways That People Are Pretending To Be Rich

The world already has plenty of genuine rich people that stink up the air with their gross displays of delusional entitlement. The last thing that we need tossed into the mix is a bunch of other people that are possessed by such haunting levels of insecurity that they end up insisting on pretending to be rich. Many of us have just enough awareness to be able to sniff out someone who is clearly putting on a front. Maybe these people's stories about their own experiences with encountering fake rich people will ring some bells.

Guy "Builds Computers" For A Living, Completely Destroys Cheap Computer

If there's one major takeaway from this tech support tale it's that just because you can build a PC doesn't necessarily mean that you know how the computer works. One can only begin to imagine the amount of hot flashes of embarrassment that this dude must've been bogged down by after realizing that he'd literally engineered the downfall of his cheap brand name computer. Like, he literally just created destruction where there otherwise would've been none to have been had. Oh well. You live and you learn. For another ridiculous tech support tale, check out this CEO who thought his computer had been hacked, and then proceeded to learn how a computer works

Worst Advice People Were Ever Given

Just because someone who is older than you or in a position of authority gives you advice doesn't mean that their "advice" isn't pure and unadulterated nonsense. Seriously, there's something hardwired into far too many folks that results in people deluding themselves into thinking they "know best" just because they've been kicking it on this strange planet for a bit longer. If your gut instinct is telling you that you just received some bad advice that you should never put into practice, then you should probably listen to that gut instinct.

Learning Center Refuses To Fix Number On Website, Pro Revenge Ensues

There are far too many instances in this world of people stubbornly refusing to be reasonable, considerate human beings, and instead just continuing to make other people's lives more complicated. In this scenario, the learning center definitely had a solid opportunity to do the right thing, which really wouldn't have been that hard in the first place. Instead, they opted for the rude route. Well, that certainly took them to a place they didn't want to end up at. I can't imagine what kind of angry conversations were taking place at the learning center for weeks on end. For some more juicy pro revenge drama, check out this toxic Karen coworker who got her rightful comeuppance

Mom Has Lapse In Judgment, Buys Children Tons Of Mentos And Coke, Chaos Ensues

Mom's heart was in the right place. The only problem is that she might've been blinded by the love she clearly has for her children. Because, dude, Coke and Mentos is a literal recipe for disaster. And then you throw in a bunch of hyperactive kids? Oh, the end times have arrived. Hopefully mom was able to get the situation under control, and is able to impart her hard-earned wisdom upon anyone other parents in her social circle that (somehow) might not know better.

Homeowner Discovers Satisfying Loophole In HOA's Monthly Fees

Alright, in all fairness we're not talking about a big bag of gold coins in this particular scenario, but that doesn't mean that it wasn't satisfying for the homeowner to find a way to screw over their HOA. Sometimes the petty revenges feel the sweetest. Maybe it's because you're not unleashing full destruction upon the recipient, but just enough that it could throw them off their game. Or hey, even if it doesn't throw them off their game, at least you can sleep easy at night knowing that you're having yourself a nice little victory. For some more HOA drama check out this HOA member who got a neighbor's car towed, so the neighbor returned the favor
