Update: 'Should I just tell her [to] go sue me?': Woman insists friend pay $2700 for accidentally sitting on her MacBook

This person tried to do the right thing after making a major mistake, but their friend is acting strangely about the whole thing. It all started when tragedy struck: u/QualityProof visited their friend's home, plopped down on the couch, and realized they were sitting on a laptop . And not just any laptop, but a MacBook, one of the more expensive PCs out there. My immediate question is this: who leaves a computer on the couch when people are coming to visit? It's risky to do that in your own hom…

Gen X couple grapples with a hard decision after finding out their broke parents planned a lavish vacation: ‘Congratulations, you are now their retirement plan’

When a fully-fledged adult flops financially, they can usually move back in with their parents to bounce back. There's that memorable stigma of the 'wanton failure' moving back in with mom and dad that's been ingrained in our heads since the dawn of rom-com rock bottom movie intro. But none of us are ever prepared for the moment that our parents move back in with the kids.

'Someone just sawed through our Internet cable': 20 major inconveniences that ruined people's days

'Someone just sawed through our Internet cable': 20 major inconveniences that ruined people's weeks

It's easy to shrug off a minor inconvenience, especially if you have a self-deprecating sense of humor. But when it comes to the unforeseen circumstances that can ruin your whole day and maybe even your whole year, even the most patient and mature adult can go crazy. As someone who self-identifies as an impatient individual, I am not sure how I would stay calm and collected through some of these ridiculous debacles. We're talking about household items falling apart, pipes bursting, cars malfunc…

'The screen was not working...It would cost about $250': Woman breaks husbands' computer monitor while trying to clean his private room, husband takes wifes' "fun money" to pay for it

This couple has been disagreeing over how to spend their fun money . One of the best parts of adult life is having fun money left over at the end of the month to spend however you wish. After you've paid off the rent or mortgage, car payment, and bought all your groceries, having an extra 30 bucks to use on something special feels like the perfect treat. Some of us buy new shoes or clothes, while others head to the movies or plan out a weekend trip. Others love to upgrade to the newest technolo…

'It's amazing what can be done when the CEO gets involved': Frustrated customer floods company execs with emails to get them to fix their computer

Using a little insider knowledge, this customer decided to find a solution to their computer problems . When your computer is broken, your emotions can range from mild annoyance to total panic.

'The landlord is very upset': Landlord insists engineer tenant fix their own appliances without realizing how much the tenant is billing him

'The landlord is very upset': Landlord insists engineer tenant fix their own appliances without realizing how much the tenant is billing him

You can't expect the average person to know how to fix large household appliances . If your washer or dryer breaks, it's not exactly recommended that you start taking the thing apart to discover the issue. Most of us don't have the capacity to fix a refrigerator or a stove either---there are some things you just leave to the professionals. That's why it's so odd that u/nopanicprepper's landlord decided that when appliances break , their tenants are the perfect people to fix them. The poor OP ha…

Update: 'This is gonna raise a lot of eyebrows': Employee spends weeks doing nothing at work after boss refuses their simple solution to computer issues

They made this dude's job too easy. A tech worker shared their story of what happened when their computer broke . Like many workplaces, some people have a knack for being able to troubleshoot technology . It's a valuable skill — many of us just don't have the technological know-how to fix these issues without recruiting someone from the IT department. To be fair, a lot of the time you only have to turn your computer off and on again, or clear the browser history, and for some reason it does fix…

When something happens in a small town, everyone is going to hear about it.

In the post, they describe how they and their husband brought their 4 year old kid to an open house . While the parents were strolling the prop…
