Most of the time, it's minor and something everyone can laugh at in the moment or a few weeks down the road. However, every so often, some revelatory piece of information is uncovered that becomes a point of no return for the couple. Luckily, I have yet to witness this kind of madness occur at a friend's wedding. However, last year, I had the great fortune…

25+ bosses who instantly regretted taking on their new hires: '[She] started crying as soon as the phone rang saying she couldn't handle it'

Every new hire deserves time to adjust to their new workflow, but sometimes it becomes instantly obvious that hiring someone was a mistake. There are several ways in which this can happen. For starters, the new hire could be one of those rare unicorns who is actually good at interviewing for positions despite being remarkably unqualified. On the other hand, it's quite possible that it was the company's fault. Perhaps the job requirements and expectations were unclear, and the only people to bla…

'The mullet is totally coming back': 25+ worst pieces of advice that former high school students regret taking

People love giving unsolicited advice to high school students, even if that advice is unfounded, misguided, and totally unproductive. For instance, the concept that these four years will determine how you end up spending the rest of your life is not only incredibly false but also potentially damaging to a teenager. Most of these nuggets of so-called “advice” likely stem from adults who have complex relationships with their own high school experiences. Perhaps they regret their approach to their…

'Couldn't remember groomsmen, went with dudesmaids instead': 20+ Times forgetful people made up their own words

The word is on the tip of your tongue , but you just can't quite remember it… It's a universal experience in this human life of ours. To err is human, and to forget words and make up something silly is funny. Parents do this all the time. Your parent will look at you, name all your siblings and forget your name, and then finally just give up and say, “You, that one. Don't forget your lunch.” Though parents have mastered the art of misspeaking, they aren't the only ones who remix words to their…

Suddenly, you wonder if how you do the dishes or get ready for bed makes you incredibly bizarre. Or perhaps you start wondering how you managed to fall for somebody who sleepwalks. Perhaps you're rethi…

Obviously, the sensible thing to do following a breakup is to take the high road and to trust that the best revenge is success and happiness. That being said, we cannot expect the anonymous folks from this Reddit thread to do the sensible thing in these situations.

Unfortunately, reality has made it nearly impossible to enjoy the eternal misery of swiping on the apps.
