People Who Were Accused of Crimes They Didn't Commit

Whether it was last week or thirty years ago, people remember being accused of things they didn't do. It's one of the most maddening feelings to be wrongfully misjudged, especially when there's no way to prove your own innocence. Here are people who got blamed for some BS. Luckily, a few of them were able to prove their innocence. Some weren't so lucky.

Mistaken People Who Didn't Get Satire

Whether it's being so upset that they lose their capacity for rationality, actually wanting to believe a joke headline, or just poor reading comprehension, there is an embarrassing number of sorely mistaken people not getting satire out there. Sometimes someone will read an obvious joke and think that they're doing everyone a favor by calling it fake news. It's half funny and half disappointing. We've got people believing in time travel, wrestler cruelty, and everything else.

Things That Exist Because of Human Stupidity

Stupidity is one of the only attributes we can trust people to have consistently. Because of this, we have to get extra explicit when it comes to labels and laws. Stuff like, "please don't put salt in eyes" and junk like that. In a similar vein, here are some jobs that only exist because people are dumb. And for some extra scary warnings, here are spooky signs that are doing their job too well.

Dude Gets Burned Trying to Give Away House

This level of trashy behavior can be found in all walks of life; be it a boss, customer, landlord or straight up stranger. And seeing someone take advantage of a charitable situation leaves a bad taste in the mouth of anyone who could actually use this kind of help. You can see more of this kind of wild stuff in entitled people making wild demands. A real spicy one is this mom who lashed out at her baby sitter for leaving her bad job.

Wild and Dumb Stuff Teachers Confiscated

Sometimes it was a normal thing that a teacher mistook for something else. Other times it was a living thing. Sometimes weapons, and other times just weird. It's strange to be an adult and realize how schools are just pure chaos with adults trying their best (sometimes) to keep things sort of in order. Here are people sharing the drama that became their school's "incident".

Tumblr User Rants about Dangers of Deregulation

They say that safety regulations are written in blood and it gets way worse than a few OSHA-defying safety fails. Big companies don't exactly have your best interests at heart, and there's a whole boatload of evidence from the early 1900s to confirm that.

Work Memes For Those Of Us Who Can't Stand Our Jobs

We've all had really rough jobs, and while ruminating on your annoying job can suck, some well placed work memes can be cathartic. Whether it's some customer service role where we have to deal with Karens having freak-outs, incompetent bosses or straight up boring jobs where you have nothing to do. The grind can lead to a sort of existential dread and a cycle that never seems to end. But don't worry, there are other jobs out there, and more often then not, the total BS you have to deal with will lead you to bigger and better things. Anyway, here's some work memes for the grind.
