Boss Tries To Take Priority Over Army, Doesn't Succeed

There are many kinds of incompetent managers out there. There's one memorable kind who's totally convinced that work takes precedence over every other function of life, like this boss who threatened to fire an employee over jury duty. Maybe it's because they think they're the king of their own little world? Time and time again, once another form of authority comes knocking, they crumple into a heap.

This teacher's wholesome moment with a rather moody student ended up coming full circle in the best way. The universe speaks in mysterious ways.

Guy Lies About Being Marine, Gets Catfished Back

What a wonderful example of two people being absolutely ridiculous. In all fairness, this dude started it when he pretended to be a marine while texting a random number. From there, the person on the receiving end of the text decides to play the catfish card right back. Talk about some master level reversary right there. Beautiful work, really.

Man Tells Girlfriend To Stop Making TikToks About Them

Even though this guy's girlfriend might be putting together those TikToks out of the kindness of her heart, that doesn't mean that it's also not generating a whole lot of flack for the poor guy. The dude's already just trying to muddle through a reasonably peaceful life as a soldier on a military base. Last thing he needs is to get continually roasted by fellow soldiers on his base, for the ridiculous TikToks his girlfriend keeps churning out. Maybe if she just steered the focus away from their relationship, and put it on other stuff, it'd work out a bit better for everyone. 

Man tells his girlfriend to stop making TikToks about their relationship | AITA telling my girlfriend she needs stop making Tiktoks as they're so embarrassing? Not hole currently deployed and if unaware TikTok has ridiculous amount military users, its so fucking cringe swear Tiktok is like 90% cringy edgy preteens and teens, military, and creepy old men talking preteens. Anyways my girlfriend makes lot tiktoks about much she misses and about army girlfriend stuff. She'll post stuff like #armygf

Soldier's Microwave Mishap Creates Chaos

Man oh man, sometimes the brain takes a lunch break, and a true fail presents itself. Take for instance, this soldier who microwaved a can of Chef Boyardee (with the lid on), on an active military base. Naturally, the resulting mess created a nice eruption of chaos, given the environment.

Military Being Hilariously Weird

Maybe what we're calling weird is absolutely normal for a lot of folks in the military. The mind is apt to find some funny and absurd ways to keep itself entertained, while out in the middle of nowhere. With all the gear around, the resulting situations one can get into are quite ridiculous.

Service Members Share Their Worst Military Wife Stories

Someone on AskReddit asked for service members to share the worst of their "military wife" stories. The resulting stories are filled to the brim with brutal acts of infidelity. These are just plain old sad. We hope the service members affected by these cheaters have moved on and found people to treat them better in life.

People In The U.S. Military Share The Creepiest Things They Encountered

Someone on AskReddit asked for people who served in the military to share their creepiest, most paranormal experiences. The following stories are chilling to the bone. Nothing quite as spooky as being out in the middle of the ocean, and seeing what look like abandoned or (unfortunately) inhabited boats eerily floating around. Or how about being sober and clearheaded as you've ever been, and seeing unexplainable flashing lights up in the sky? Yikes.

The inferiority complex is strong with this one. Watch him panic when asked about his military ID number. When are people ever going to learn to quit their BS? Not today apparently.
