Customer Demands a 500 MB plan Instead of Existing 16 GB Plan

On one hand, having to call customer service, especially for a telecommunications company, can be a time wasting slog. On the other hand, some customers just call customer service for an opportunity to scream at someone. In this case, this woman would rather scream and demand a 500 MB plan rather than actually listen, so things didn't exactly end in her favor.

Woman calls a call center and demands a 500 MB plan because she thinks it is bigger than 16 GB and she gets it.

Medical Professionals Share the Dumbest Things They've Had to Explain To People

Doctors, Nurses, certified nursing assistants, pharmacists, and anyone even  tangentially related to medicine constantly have to talk to people who have no basic understanding of how their own body works. Patients will do stupid things, lie, and even deny the most WTF stuff. It's kind of sad to think about where we'd be without medical expertise, and it's flabbergasting to see what people think is healthy behavior.

With commentary from SciManDan, we're taken through an amazing journey as a flat earther rips up a children's science book that he deems to be round earth propaganda in a Target. He buys the book anyway, so while he seems content with his incredibly limited world view, what he truly fears is the wrath of a Target manager watching him destroy product. Just kinda makes you sad.

25 Things People Would Treat Differently If They Had Better Names

There's a lot in a name. Some stuff that should be taken more seriously like deep vein thrombosis or hurricane evacuation areas gets bogged down under a name more pleasant than it should be. Other things like particular food and games would sound less dangerous if the name was more accurate. Other stuff, particularly urinal cakes, could just use a much more fun update.
